Practice getting into a Neutral Spine Position when the pelvis, rib cage and skull are aligned on top of each other, preventing overload in the spine. Every movement activates the core muscles. When we're in alignment we will have more balance and less stress on the shoulder, hip, knee and spine joints. Physical therapists can help in training, balance exercises and stabilization techniques. When it comes to proper body alignment, keeping down your weight can have benefits. If you are overweight, there will be stress on joints and muscles. It's important to note that extra weight can make things worse, even if you reduce weight, the problem will still be there if the alignment is not correct. In the early stage spinal misalignments often produce no symptoms. We should identify the problemed areas which can be addressed before they become headaches, back pain or more serious health issues.
