This week our contributor Jennifer, from Purple om Yoga in Denville NJ, DID A FANTASTIC VIDEO (watch below), showing how to decongest the spine, as well as stretching the adjacent joints, while contracting key stabilizers around the shoulder blades.
Your spinal cord is protected by the vertebral column (also known as the spinal column or backbone). The human spinal column is made up of 33 bones – 7 vertebrae in the cervical region, 12 in the thoracic region, 5 in the lumbar region, what most back specialist call L-1, L-2, 3, 4, 5. Also five in the sacral region and 4 in the coccygeal region.
Most people get confused thinking the spine is actually straight. However, isn’t actually straight. It’s comprised of four curves that cushion impact and connect artfully to other joints, such as your hips and shoulders, to keep you mobile.
Your topmost curve is the cervical spine, found at your neck, and consists of seven vertebrae. Your thoracic curve comes next and consists of 12 vertebrae attached to the ribs. The low back, or lumbar, contain five vertebrae and are a common source of pain. Your sacrum is the bottom most curve; these fused vertebrae in the coccyx join the pelvis and support your pelvic bowl.
The cervical and lumbar spines curve concavely, or inwardly; the thoracic curve and sacrum are convex curves, rounding slightly outward. For that reason, with the wrong pressure things can go extremely wrong. Thereby, choosing the right yoga program is crucial.
