Your Lower Back Needs to be Aligned to be Healthy
The alignment and the movement of your lumbar spine are the most important factors that determines the strength of your spine.
Have a look at the example below:
When seen from the side, your lower back needs to be curved forward. From behind, your lumbar spine needs to be straight and your pelvis should be levelled.
| Your back needs to be strong and supportive, and the alignment of your spinal bones determines the strength of your spine.
When your lower back has this optimal alignment, you will have:
- Good flexibility
- Proper posture
- Balanced weight distribution
- Little muscle tension
- Limited low back pain
Good spinal alignment will also lead to healthy disc, ligaments and nerves in your lumbar spine.
| Simply stated: An aligned spine will be healthy, strong and resilient.
