Now I ask you a tougher question. What do you do to maintain good spinal hygiene? Just like teeth, your spinal joints need to be cared for daily. Unlike with your teeth, we cant just scrape off or pull out the gunk that builds up around the joints and cause decay. Lets start our crash course in taking care of the most important joints in your body!
Keeping your disks looking like the ones on the left for as long as possible is the goal because you can't keep a spare spine in a glass by your bed stand.
1.Instead of brushing, do mobility focused exercise every day. A structured class of yoga or Pilates works great or just moving your spine in all directions by yourself. Going for a 30 minute walk is also beneficial. A disc that is moving can pump nutrients in and toxins out staying healthier longer.
2.No flossing needed, but your discs do need the proper nutrition to stay healthy. The most important nutrients being glucosamine and chondroitin in sulfate forms.
Chondroitin sulfate (from perna canaliculus) is the single most effective item for relief of joint pain and inflammation. Glucosamine sulfate is a natural component of joint cartilage and lends even more anti inflammatory properties to the mix. They must be in sulfate forms so that they attract water to the discs, keeping them hydrated. At our office we use the most effective and researched joint and cartilage repair and regeneration supplement on the market.
