You may be aware that there are many health benefits to being able to get back to normal after a serious injury or illness.
But if you’re like many, it can feel like you’re not in control of your recovery and it’s really hard to find out why your spine is still in such a bad shape.
Luckily, the American Spine Society has been busy studying spinal injuries and rehabilitation for a number of years, and their research has led them to a surprising conclusion: You shouldn’t be trying to regain your health, but instead, you should focus on improving your spine mechanics.
This is the conclusion that the society reached when they started a new study, which found that when you focus on the spine mechanics in your daily life, your body is better able to heal itself.
Here’s what they found: It’s not that your body has to “restart” the repair process.
Rather, it’s that your muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissue have to be able to maintain a good balance and the balance is what makes a spinal injury heal.
And while you may feel that the muscles and ligaments aren’t able to “recover” completely, they are able to adapt to the situation, which is important in order to repair your spinal cord.
The key is to use the body’s own physiology to keep things balanced, and to allow your body to “learn” to work with your body, says Amy G. Tompkins, the associate chair in spine biomechanics at the Mayo Clinic and a spine specialist.
This means that when the body is not able to repair itself, you need to find ways to strengthen the muscles, tendon, ligament and connect.
So if you don’t do this, your spine can develop an imbalance, which can eventually lead to a chronic condition called osteoarthritis, a degenerative condition in the spine.
In this study, the scientists looked at the mechanics of spinal alignment as well as the effects of stretching on spinal mobility, as well the effects on blood flow.
They also examined how the body responds to stretching, using a magnetic resonance imaging technique to see how the muscles in the lower spine react to stretching.
The researchers found that a number “keys” to spinal alignment include keeping the spine flat and relaxed, maintaining a “neutral spine,” which means that the spine is supported by its own muscles, and the ability to “calibrate” the spine to help it balance.
You might think that this would be enough to get you back to the way you were before your injury, but the results show that your spine should not be thinking about “restoring” health, and instead, it should be focusing on strengthening and maintaining your muscles and joints to allow them to work more efficiently, Tompkin says.
