With 76% of back surgeries failing more and more people are turning to movement therapies to help alleviate pain. Low back pain is very common. Fortunately, most people find that it only lasts a few days or weeks. The exact cause of low back pain is often difficult to find. Tension, soreness and/or stiffness are common symptoms. Joints, connective tissue and discs may contribute to the symptoms. The thoracic spine is built for rotation, flexion, and extension. It is highly mobile – or, rather, it has the potential for lots of mobility. Because of its mobility, the thoracic spine must be used, must be moved. But it has to be known. If people are unable to visualize and feel the movement of the thoracic spine, or if they’re unable to even grasp the concept of its existence, they’ll just attempt to twist, rotate, flex, and bend with something familiar to them: the lumbar spine. That’s bad news. A movement system that gently works the entire body opening energy pathways through rhythmic, spiraling movements.
