The spine is the core and central axis of our physical being. Both in its roles for movement and for stable support, it is the key architectural element in ourbodies, around which all of the functions of our shoulders and arms, pelvic girdle, legs and neck and cranium are organized.
Deep within the bony protection of the vertebrae, the spinal cord is the neural conduit between the brain and the rest of the body, through which all somatic sensation and all motor responses are filtered. There is no organic function that is not profoundly affected by the spine’s postrual integrity or chronic contortions, and its freedom or restriction of movement.
The spine is also the most complex structrue of our skeletal, muscular and connective tissue systems, held together and animated by twenty-five vertebrae, layer upon layer of ligaments, tendon anchors, literally hundreds of muscles.
The remarkable coordination of all these elements is designed to provide both ease of mobility and continual support throughtout all anatomically possible ranges of movement, all combinations of slither and solidity.
Less happily, it is also one of our most common sorces of pain and restriction, and its ease of function is all too often compromised by our postrual distortions, our habitually limited repertoires of movement, and the strains and injuries we encouter in our active lives.
