Your neck is an amazing structure. Take time to appreciate its functionality and absolute necessity and you will realize how important it is to protect. The neck is the main support for your head, and it plays a vital role in supplying blood to your brain from the heart. Without proper blood flow, the brain cannot perform its essential functions including sleep, heart rate, breathing and coordination. The two carotid arteries, which supply most of the blood flow for brain functioning, are located in canals within the neck vertebrae.
Along with nutrition, exercise is a great way to rehabilitate a low-grade back injury. It is advisable to construct an exercise regime under the guidance of a medical professional: we help you create individualized plans based on the level of your pain and stage of recovery. It is not enough to focus solely on core strengthening, as many people will have you believe. This is a piece of the puzzle, but we also want to correct muscular imbalances and lengthen restrictive muscles, setting you up for a pain-free future.
