Is Your Spine Healthy?
Are your cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine healthy?
The role of the spine is like the pillars of the house, which play a decisive role in support and load-bearing, shock absorption, protection and movement. If you don’t pay attention to maintaining the spine, over time, it may lead to scoliosis due to work pressure and incorrect posture, which will not only cause cervical spondylosis, sloping shoulders, hunchback, back pain, low back pain, intervertebral disc herniation, bone hyperplasia and other symptoms, but also Discomfort in all parts of the body.
The following are five common clinical problems of spinal sub-health, see if you are right? Below the article is a teaching video of Fu Jianji's meridian exercise for adjusting the pelvis.
(1) Often Waist, Neck and Back Pain
Sitting for a long time, lumbar strain, improper posture, weak kidneys, etc. can cause pain problems, and over time may also cause more serious scoliosis, spinal disc herniation, stenosis and other diseases.
(2) Rough Skin
Scoliosis will affect the decline of visceral function and slow metabolism. Not only is the upper body easy to grow fat, but the body curve and skin are also easy to become rough.
(3) Uneven Shoulders
When scoliosis occurs, it will affect the surrounding muscle lines and growth, resulting in deformation of the scapula, which can easily cause uneven shoulders and affect the appearance of the body.
An unhealthy spine will hinder the return of blood and lymph, seriously affect the circulation of qi and blood in the abdominal organs, and cause dysmenorrhea, irregular menstruation and other gynecological diseases.
(5) Affects Cardiorespiratory Health
Don't assume that problems with your bones don't affect your internal organs. Problems in the spine will directly affect the lungs. When the disease is aggravated, it may also affect the circulation, resulting in cardiac dysfunction.

As can be seen from the above figure, the spine plays an irreplaceable and important role in our body. Each of the 33 vertebrae is closely related to our internal organs.
Good Posture and Spine Health
So, how can we maintain our spine health?
First of all, we start to pay attention to the most basic standing and sitting postures, maintain appropriate "ridge building" movements, allow the spine to be properly stretched, and take care of sufficient blood supply. "The kidney is the home of the waist", and good kidney function is also the key to preventing back pain.
Our spine, structurally rigid, is the main support tissue of the body. The vertebrae on the spine cooperate with cartilage discs, ligaments, muscles, etc. to stabilize the spine and make the body flexibly perform various movements and postures.
Childhood and adolescence is an important stage of bone growth. Maintaining a good posture from childhood and paying attention to spinal health will not only maintain a good appearance, but also reduce the chance of injury and pain.
Teacher Maggie demonstrates the correct standing and sitting postures here. Whenever you don't want to stretch your head to "smell" the computer screen or mobile phone, remind yourself not to be a bow-headed family!
