Health & Wellness

August, 2019



Are you living with back pain? You may notice that your pain worsens each morning when you wake up, when you have to stand for more than 10minutes, or when you have to walk long distances. The severity of back pain can range from minor dull aches to sharp stabbing pains. Pain that radiates from the spine down to the buttocks and legs is typically a sign of sciatica. However, your back pain can be avoided and resolved by improving your spinal health. Contact Kerrville Physical Therapy Center today to find out how. You may be wondering, “What does this mean? How can I tell if my spine is healthy?” When we think of health, we typically focus on nutrition, exercise, and heart health – but spine health is incredibly important, as well. Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects

your spinal cord, allows you to breathe properly, and it is what allows your body to move. In fact, almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine. This is why spine health is so important. If you are living with back pain, you know how limiting it can be. In order to make sure your spine is at its optimumhealth, you must achieve the following: • Good posture and spinal curves. • Strong abdominal and core muscles. • Strong spinal and gluteus muscles. • Good flexibility and balance with side- bending and rotation. • Good nutrition and rest at night. If you are suffering from back pain, contact us today to seek treatment.
