SPINAL MECHANICS 101🐍
Stabilizing and bracing the spine is THE most important part of moving around as a human being. And we're all pretty shit at doing it properly (or at all).
In my awesome drawing (I'll be selling prints on #Etsy sooooo...) you can see how the spine is divided into sections; these sections should move together as ONE.
However, most of us flex/extend (think 'hinging') these sections independently of one another 😨 This destabilizes the spine which not only makes loading it dangerous, but also decreases the amount of force we can transmit (aka....screws with performance).
Pictured above ⬆️ are the two most common spinal faults I see in my clients: -
1) Flexing through the thoracic spine (think, bra line) #hunchback #quasimodo 🚫
2) Extending through the lumbar spine (think, every IG booty pic that ever existed) #saynototwerking 🚫
✳Which one do you find yourself doing the most

Officially 5 weeks post op this week and standing up totally straight! 🙌 Swelling is still in full effect and actually worse this week than last week. That's OK though because I feel like a million bucks this week. I've turned a definite corner in the recovery process. Trying to remind myself that I'm still healing from #majorsurgery and need to chill. The pain has shifted to discomfort and I'm off all medications. I'm still thrilled with my results and excited to see what the next couple months bring! #feellikeamillionbucks #hunchback #tummytuck #posttummytuck #excessskin #extremeweightloss
Have you been putting a pinch of too much weight on your shoulders lately ♡
Make time to relax, heal, and grow. :) Reward yourself once in a while. ♡
This was in Italy. They said this resembled the hunchback. If I remember right he helped hold the city up or something idk. If you know the story please tell I was trying to soak up all the info while being silly with my loves. 😂😏

How to stretch at your desk without making a scene 😂.

🚨 3 STRETCHES FOR OFFICE JOB WORKERS [hip mobility] 🚨
The hips can become chronically short from long periods of sitting in front of the computer!
Stretching and mobilizing the hips can help loosen up the musculature of the hips and prevent lower back and hip pain from sitting. It is also important to take frequent breaks and walk around whenever you get a chance as well!
1️⃣ Piriformis Stretch:
➡️ Sit on a chair and cross one leg over the other
➡️ Hinge forward from only the hips until a stretch is felt
➡️ Be sure to keep the knee pushed down towards the floor
2️⃣ Hamstring Stretch:
➡️ Sit on the edge of the chair and fully extend one leg in front
➡️ Hinge forward from the hips until a stretch is felt
➡️ Be sure to avoid any rounding of the lower back
3️⃣ Hip Flexor Stretch:
➡️ Sit on the side of the chair and straddle one leg in front/back
➡️ Reach the same side arm overhead
➡️ Squeeze the glutes until a stretch is felt in the hips
Aim for 30 - 60 seconds per stretch or until a sense of relief is felt.
