~Workin that spine flexibility ~

In all seriousness though, mobility in the spine plays such an important role in having a healthy life.
Think of your spinal cord and all the complex networks of systems that run down from the brain to the end of your spine. Every single, tiny nerve; nerves that control your bowels and your Internal organs, nerves that control your skin (numbness, tingling) nerves that control muscles & movements. Our bodies are a brilliant & complex network that works in harmony when it is given the nutrition and  movement it needs. Just like we maintenance our vehicles, and clean our homes, we must maintenance our bodies, especially our spine. Moving the spine daily, forward & backwards, also side to side, as well as curving & twisting the spine helps all the muscles and organs that surround it, and we know that  every cell of us is woven together connecting us perfectly together like a puzzle. So when our spine is healthy and flexibility, that helps our hamstrings, it also helps our upper back and neck which connect to other parts of us, and believe it or not it also increases flexibility in the mind! Overall spine work is a necessity and is always a good thing 😉👍

    “It’s 80 something degrees in LA .” 🏁💙 But literally it’s 86 degrees in Los Angeles today so don’t forget your water ! 💧

Heath officials encourage you to drink 8 glasses of water a day . 
The average adult human body is 50-65% water. And is much higher in infants, typically around 75-78% . 
Water helps dissolve minerals and nutrients, making them more accessible to the body.
One of the major functions is to deliver oxygen throughout the body . It cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues . It regulates body temperature, lubricates the joints , flushes bodily waste , helps maintain blood pressure , prevents kidney damage, and boosts performance during exercise ! 💦. ♥️♣️

    #ChalkTalk - The Golden Gate Bridge & Your Health⠀
⠀
It’s the most famous bridge in the world. What most don’t know is that the reason it’s still standing is that it is constantly being maintained.  It’s exposed to the elements ⛈ and the stress of 40,000 cars 🚗 a day; preserving the Golden Gate Bridge is a full time job. For example, when painting crews finish at one end, they immediately start over at the other.⠀
⠀
All great structures need routine basic maintenance; ⚒ even when there’s no problem to speak of.This applies to YOUR structure!⠀
⠀
The joints of the body, particularly of the spine do a tremendous amount of work on a day-to-day basis. Your spine has to fight and resist gravity just from the act of sitting and standing. While your body needs to resist gravity daily for neurological health, gravity is a constant force that can wear you down.⠀
⠀
Chiropractors often get criticism for making care recommendations for people that are no longer in pain. It is true that some chiropractors probably see people excessively for maintenance purposes.⠀
⠀
However, we're not afraid to say that most people can and should maintain the health of their spine throughout their life with periodic checks and practicing recommendations that reduce repetitive stress on the body.⠀
⠀
While maintenance will not protect you completely from the effects of father time and mother nature, it can help ensure that you get there with a little bit more grace.⠀

    SOMETIMES NORMAL ARCH EXERCISES ISN'T ENOUGH🤯
.
On average a person will take 2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ steps/day and for anyone else that is more active that number increases drastically. So why don't we train the arch to stay strong while moving instead of just when we are standing? Whenever my clients that I have treated for foot problems starts to run again the first thing they say the next time I see them is "my feet got really tired".
.
This exercise focuses on keeping the arch contracted while going through flexion of the foot/ankle as if we would be walking 🚶 or running 🏃 (of course this is exaggerated). You may find this movement to be difficult at first but it will get easier over time.
.
TIPS☑️
.
1] Perform 3x10-20/Leg (start off with a smaller number and work your way up to the 20 reps)
2] Once this movement starts to get easy you can progress to the next stage of difficulty (Stay tuned for my next video)
3] Don't curl or drive your toes into the floor to flex your arch (think about lifting the middle of your foot to the ceiling)

POSTURE!⁣
⁣
What is it? ⁣
According to https://www.chiroone.net/how-chiropractic-helps/posture posture is the, “-position of the body while standing, sitting or lying down.”⁣
⁣
Posture is super important because it plays a huge role in:⁣
*Maintaining alignment if the spine⁣
*Reducing risk of injury⁣
*Lessening the strain of muscles & back pain⁣
⁣
Is it possible to improve posture?⁣
YES! Chiropractic adjustments will correct spinal misalignments & your D.C. will usually recommend exercises to strengthen postural muscles. Stronger muscles not only hold those adjustments in place but are then used more efficiently which conserves energy and decreases muscle fatigue. ⁣
⁣
Share with someone who’s looking to improve their posture and let me know if you learned something new!🙌🏼⁣

    Self care-what a subject.  Dr B, has taken care of my spine for years. He has literally kept me out of surgery when I was told it was the only option. (Currently) Any type of back neck or spine issues, I HIGHLY recommend him. He takes walk ins on Monday Wednesday and Friday’s. No insurance required and his technique is completely different than the crack Um and send um out method. 😊 tell him Jamie sent you.  You’ll feel better almost immediately! Self care is NOT selfish. ✌🏻❤️😎🌸👨‍⚕️ #thetreatmentroomaz #selfcare #chiropractic #phoenix #wellness #nonsurgical #spine #disc #vaxd

    it was a stay in bed and study kind of morning ☕️ .
one thing that i’ve noticed that’s been helping me memorize alllllll these terms is mnemonics. mnemonics is using the first letter of each word in a list of items to make a name of a person or thing. for example afferent neurons and efferent neurons. the “e” in efferent represents the neurons “exiting” the brain + spinal cord to the rest of the body. afferent neutrons, the “a” represents the neurons “ascending” in the cord towards the brain. little tricks like this have been very helpful because the nervous system is truly one of the most difficult, yet fascinating systems there is.

    Given the right love at the right time with some hinge point T-spine drills. 
Benefits of islotating the small parts (One vertebrae in this case) 
Making progress and change is great when using  big bang exercises in theory, we get more done in a shorter space of time. 
However it can also stall your progress depending on the individual and where they are at. 
Example I use alot of bridge work for thoracic mobility in rehab and performance and for my own gymnastic based strength training. The bridge is a super exercise and something we all should invest time to unlock.  It's a big bang for your book move as it involves thoracic spine, shoulder and hips. 
A important point I want to highlight, not everyone can start here or can continue progress just with bridge work depending on other joints (shoulder & hips) or some of the vertebrae in T-spine that may be locked.  The bridge has a lot of components and it may not reach the right vertebrae or place that needs the attention. 
In some case's it will just go above or below to the next vertebrae and move what's already moving. Note repetitive movement in this scenario can also result in further problems. (Any over used move becomes toxic) 
I made massive progress with bridges but it got to point where I couldn't seem to make any further progress. I had to use alternative drills like you see in the picture to work on hinge point sections of the Thoracic spine. (Target one vertebrae) 
Find the vertebrae which is locked down, isolate the system and get the love to the right part.

    Don’t be ‘Nervous’ just follow below & you’ll know it! @rev.med ⤵️⁣
⁣
Studying Anatomy isn’t always easy, and we know that... see REV🧠MED on YouTube, it’ll be sure to help! (Link in Bio)⁣
⁣
✅ Overview ⁣
⁣
First remember — even though your having breakfast at 8 Cervical Nerve o clock, there are 7 Cervical Vertebrae AND 8 cervical spinal nerves. The spinal cord is situated within the spine. The spine consists of a series of vertebral segments. @rev.med⁣
⁣
✅ Vertebral segments ⁣⁣
⁣
There are 7 cervical (neck), 12 thoracic (chest), 5 lumbar (back), and 5 sacral (tail) vertebrae. The spinal cord sends roots that exit the spinal canal between vertebral bodies. Spinal cord nerves are not always situated at the corresponding vertebral levels. For example, the C8 cord segment is situated in the C7 vertebra while the T12 cord is situated in the T8 vertebra. The lumbar cord is situated between T9 and T11 vertebrae. The sacral cord is situated between the T12 to L2 vertebrae.⁣ @rev.med ⁣⁣
⁣
▪️The Cervical Cord⁣⁣
⁣
The cervical cord innervates the deltoids (C4), biceps (C4-5), wrist extensors (C6), triceps (C7), wrist extensors (C8), and hand muscles (C8-T1).⁣⁣
⁣
▪️The Thoracic Cord⁣⁣
⁣
The thoracic vertebral segments are defined by those that have a rib. These vertebral segments are also very special because they form the back wall of the pulmonary cavity and the ribs. The spinal roots form the intercostal (between the ribs) nerves that run on the bottom side of the ribs and connect to the intercostal muscles and associated dermatomes.⁣ @rev.med⁣⁣
⁣
▪️The Lumbosacral Cord⁣⁣
⁣
The lumbosacral vertebra form the remainder of the segments below the vertebrae of the thorax. The lumbosacral spinal cord, however, starts at about T9 and continues only to L2. It contains most of the segments that innervate the hip and legs, as well as the buttocks and anal regions.⁣⁣
⁣
Connections are great, whether it’s eating early dinner at 5 and spinal nerves or ‘Atlantis’ Vertebrae C1 holding up the world (Occiput), just make the connection! ⁣⁣

    These are 2 exercises that really help to increase upper back flexibility. But be careful, they can be useful or harmful, especially for the shoulders. Always think of the direction of energy ☝️ .

In video 1: butt back and up, sternum up, triceps forward (facing the wall/mirror)= deltoids away from our head* .

In video 2: shoulders ⬅️, chest ➡️, knees ⬅️, ankles and toes ➡️, butt ⬇️, tripceps and  deltoids as in video* . *Move your arms from the shoulder socket instead of only the arms. 
Note: Think of the circular movement of our shoulders and use it to move the chest and shoulders. Push your abs down towards your pubic bone to protect your intercostal muscles. .

    Embrace the Spinal differences! @rev.med Read below ⤵️⁣⁣
⁣⁣
REV 🧠 MED Videos on YouTube! Subscribe & share! (Link in Bio)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
✅ Overview⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Not all segments of the Spinal Cord are made equal, although the general pattern of gray matter is the same throughout the spinal cord, segmental differences can be seen in transverse sections. The above diagram shows the main segments you must know, Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar. Made up of 31 segments: 8 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar, 5 sacral and 1 coccygeal. A pair of spinal nerves leaves each segment of the spinal cord.@rev.med⁣⁣
⁣⁣
✅ Know the 5 Key Points!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
1️⃣ The greatest amount of grey matter (cells) is largest in the spinal segments of the cervical and lumbosacral enlargements. The thoracic and upper lumbar levels have relatively small amounts of grey matter since they innervate the thoracic and abdominal regions.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
2️⃣ The absolute number of nerve fibers in the white matter increases at each successive higher spinal segment.@rev.med⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3️⃣ The lateral horn is present from T1-L2.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
4️⃣ When comparing the cervical and lumbosacral enlargements, the dorsal horns at cervical levels are narrower than that in lumbars; the ventral horn is broad in both.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
5️⃣ Fasciculi cuneatus and gracilis are BOTH present above T7.⁣⁣
