How Your Spine Connects to Your Entire Body

Feb 24

It is no secret that our spines play a significant role in the functioning of our entire body according to professional chiropractors and others. But did you know that it goes beyond just your skeleton? Yes, it's true! The spine is integral to several physiological processes, and its health can profoundly impact your overall well-being.


The spine is more than just a structural support for the body; it also houses the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and spinal cord. This connection between the CNS and the body means it plays a critical role in coordinating many bodily functions, from respiration to fine motor control. It is also responsible for relaying sensory information to the brain, allowing us to perceive the environment around us.


Ways To Keep Your Spine Healthy


  • Perform regular stretching exercises.
  • Lift weights properly to strengthen the core muscles in your back and abdomen.
  • Avoid activities that involve bending, lifting, or twisting while your spine is in an awkward position, and always lift from your legs instead of your back.
  • Incorporate aerobic exercise into your routine, as this is beneficial for spinal health and overall well-being.
  • Engage in activities that promote good posture, such as yoga or Pilates classes for improved muscular balance around the spine.
  • Take regular breaks from sitting or standing for extended periods to avoid putting unnecessary strain on your spine.
  • If you experience any lower back pain or discomfort, seek medical advice and treatment as soon as possible.
  • Use the correct ergonomic posture for computer work and other tasks that could put undue stress on your spine.
  • Utilize a supportive mattress and pillow that will offer spinal support while sleeping to promote healthy alignment throughout the night.
  • Pay attention to movements such as bending, lifting, and twisting that can cause injury if done incorrectly or excessively.
  • Practice mindful movement techniques to build strength and stability around the spine in everyday activities.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water daily to help keep the spinal discs lubricated and functioning properly.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight, as this can reduce the stress on your spine.
  • Eat nutrient-dense foods rich in essential vitamins and minerals for optimal overall health, including bone health.
  • Quit smoking or using tobacco products, as these substances have been linked to an increased risk of developing chronic back pain.
  • Engage in regular physical activity that promotes flexibility and strength around the spine, including walking, swimming, cycling, or yoga.
  • Take time for yourself each day by relaxing with a good book or engaging in hobbies that bring joy and satisfaction - this helps to reduce stress, which can be a major factor in back pain.

Due to its important role, maintaining spinal health should be of utmost importance. Unfortunately, this can prove difficult as everyday activities such as driving or sitting at a desk for prolonged periods can take their toll on our spine’s health over time. Fortunately, there are ways to reduce such stress on our spines without any harm - through chiropractic care!
