Our spine is the foundation of our whole body. It is a structure which gives us balance, stability and ability to perform our daily tasks and activities.

Without a strong spine we cannot carry out our normal functions.

A strong core or abdomen can alleviate your spine to help keep your lower back healthy.

With the passage of time, the muscles and ligaments surrounding your spine can deteriorate with age or from an injury while lifting a heavy object or falling down on the hard surface.

Old age makes bones and muscles weak

When muscles and ligaments start getting old, they become stiff and movements like twisting, lifting, stretching, and bending become difficult.

People suffering from back pain usually fear movement. It results in making their back even more stiff and they experience more pain than ever.
