Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, muscles,
discs, tendons, ligaments and nerves. It is the hub of your nervous
system where messages to and from your brain travel to different
parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to
master the ability to stand up straight, walk and run.
Misspelled Word Game
As we age, it is very common to suffer aches and pains in the
lower back, typically because of poor posture and prolonged sitting
or previous injuries. However, this is a sign of underlying problems
and your spine is telling you something, so listen! Your spine relies
on proper posture, alignment, strength and coordination. When
any one of these key areas doesn’t work right, strain and stress
occurs on different parts of the spine, sparking off inflammation.

winner. He correctly guessed:
Mispelled (should have been misspelled)
This inflammation irritates nerves and causes pain signals to shoot
to the brain. The inflammation further weakens the spinal muscles
and even the leg muscles, causing difficulty with everyday
activities. Getting up and down from the floor, squatting, standing
for long periods and even walking can become a problem. This
can really affect your life and the longer the problem persists, the
more long-term damage can occur.

SUCCESS STORY
“After a double spinal fusion and
disc replacement, I began therapy
here. At that time I struggled to walk,
sit and couldn’t bend over. I couldn’t
lift my legs off the table and I was
unable to complete most daily
activities without pain. After about
six weeks of PT, three times per
week, I am grateful and relieved to
say I am able to do more than I
could before surgery. My range of
motion, strength and ability to live
without pain is a complete success!”
