In the Spine, Too Much Curve is No Good

It’s easy to think of our spines as straight. Not so. Our spines aren’t meant to be like the highway from Amarillo to Oklahoma City. A healthy spine has gentle curves as it progresses from the cervical spine down to the lumbar spine of the lower back. When viewed from the side, the spine has […]
