Did you know your spinal hygiene is just as important or more important than your outward bodily hygiene?
Whether you know it or not, all health and healing in your body flows from above-down, inside-out... from your brain to every single cell in your body providing life, health, and healing for a lifetime. But if you do not take proper care of your spine those messages of life that are flowing from your brain to your body will be damaged and your body will not function as it should.
Since we were young we grew up understanding the importance of dental hygiene. We were taught to brush, floss, and visit a dentist regularly to maintain the health of our teeth.
Taking Flexibility Training Seriously...
When it comes to the Big Three of exercise - cardiovascular, strength training and flexibility - it's pretty clear which one can get overlooked. After all, while we prize cardiovascular and strength training for their role in helping us lose weight, build muscle and get fit, the benefits of flexibility training are less immediately alluring.

Press Release – Female Athlete Triad: Double Check the Score
By Dr. Elizabeth Pilicy
Girls who play soccer, or participate in any endurance sport, may be at risk to develop a combination of three disorders now commonly referred to as the "Female Athlete Triad."
The female athlete triad is composed of the connected pattern of disordered eating, exercise-associated loss of normal cyclic menstrual periods (amenorrhea), and loss of bone mineral density or frank osteoporosis. This disorder is increasingly occurring in athletic women, particularly as more and more girls are participating in high level sports and are starting at increasingly younger ages. The inadequate nutrient supply to the body associated with disordered eating patterns is at the heart of this serious disorder. This triad as a whole often goes unrecognized. The consequences of lost bone mineral density can be devastating for the female athlete. Stress fractures or premature osteoporotic fractures can occur, and lost bone mineral density may never be regained.
