Spring begins this week. Time to think tall. Get our heads back over our shoulders. Open our rib cages and breathe in.
This excellent illustration by Erik Dalton, called The 42 Pound Head, shows what happens to your vertebrae as the rest of your body is asked to support your now cantilevered head. This motion engages all of your body and can especially cause issues in the lower back.
So--think SPRING! Lift your rib cage out of your hips and inhale. You will feel ever so much better. You could also make an appointment with your massage therapist and your chiropractor.
