We Only Have One Spine
Just as you treat your eyes with great care, just as you treat your teeth with great care, just as you treat your brain with great care; you just treat your spine with great care as well. We only have one spine, and while great advancements have been made within the field of medical care for spinal conditions, it’s still very important to treat your spine right. Throughout this post we’ll be discussing how our spines have strength and fragility, how spinal conditions can be prevented, the importance of seeing medical professionals regularly, and why if you’re currently experiencing back pain you’ll want to schedule an appointment with our excellent team here at Neurosurgery & Spine Consultants.
Our Spines are Strong in Some Ways, Yet Sensitive in Other Ways
Your spine is designed to be able to take some impact and force, yet with anything else, there’s a limit to which it can handle. Healthy spines have unique cushioning mechanisms between each individual disc to allow us to absorb impact when we jump up and down for example. However, when we jump or land awkwardly for example, it can cause a disc to pop out of place if we’re not careful. This is just one example of the many injuries we could encounter with our spines which is why it’s so important to be aware of your limits within an activity you’re participating within.
Spinal Conditions Can Be Prevented in Many Cases Through Proactive Method
Spinal conditions may be prevented through proper stretching, strength training exercises, nutrition, etc… If you treat your spine well, along with her rest of your body, you’ll most likely see a much lesser chance of long-term deterioration or injury over time. It all comes down to taking care if your body through the aforementioned methods and seeing your doctor regularly.
Seeing Medical Professionals Regularly
One of the best ways to treat your spine, and your entire body with care, is to see your doctor regularly for everything from an annual physical exam, to bloodwork level checks, to pre-screening exams for any abnormalities. As we become older each and every year, we can’t let things slide as we used to perhaps in our twenties. Your body is a sacred temple and should be treated as such.
