At birth, a part of “shock absorber” mechanism of your spine, the nucleus pulpous, is 90% water, and the annulus fibrosus is roughly 80% water. The effects of trauma, age, and degeneration to these fibers and to the spongy bone can be accelerated with improper exercise and training. Chemical changes occur to these tissues – the disc’s water content drops to 70% and the annulus to 60% and the spongy bones capacity to expand can decrease. Learn more about how to take care of you spine, body and how to use proper exercise techniques in the ELDOA 1-2 training certification courses.
If you want a healthy spine, train with a SomaTrainer or someone certified to teach the ELDOA exercises. You can change the level of pain and mobility with a few exercises. Become ‘your own best therapist’.
