Your Spine: The Center of Your Universe
A healthy spine is a beautiful thing. It allows freedom of movement, independence and joy of living. Your spine holds you up, lets you stretch, bend, lift, twist and recline.
All other parts of the body ray out from the spine. Any movement of head, arms, ribcage, and legs interacts with it. An old yoga adage reminds us, "You are as young as your spine is flexible."
But, what if it's not flexible? What if it's damaged? Well, then, you may be in for a world of pain.Photo: Getty Images
