Understanding Anatomy : A Healthy Spine
Knowing how a healthy spine works may help to understand how moving wisely can protect back and keep it free of pain. A healthy spine supports body, while allowing it to move freely. It does this with the help of three natural curves, which keep body balanced. Stong, flexible muscles support spine and keep curves in normal alignment. Keeping lower back (Lumbar curve) aligned is most important because it bears the brunt of weight - and it moves the most. Soft, cushioning discs separate the hard bones of spine, allowing it to bend and move.
Lumbar curve is the hardest-working part of spine. It carries more weights and moves the most. Aligning lumbar curve helps prevent injury to vertebrae, discs and other parts of spine.
Discs are soft cushions that separate vertebrae and absorb shock of move. Each has a spongy center (nucleus) and a tougher outer ring (annulus), which contain spain fibers. The movement of fluid within the nucleus allows vertebrae to rock back and forth on discs, giving the flexibility to bend and move. Depending on how much move, size, shape and flexibility of discs change throughout the day.
