Spinal Mobility

The lumbar spine has the most natural mobility. The thoracic spine, on the other hand, has the least – as it is restricted by its connection to the ribs. When mobility issues strike this area, it also affects movement in the cervical spine as well as the lumbar spine. And this makes moving through life a lot more challenging! While any kind of pain may make us feel like being still, it’s important to keep moving in order to increase thoracic spinal mobility. So focusing on safe and reasonable movement in this part of the spine is of utmost importance for the overall health of your spine. By maintaining thoracic spinal mobility, you will experience a better range of motion in the upper body and more stability of the lumbar spine. In addition, you’ll feel less pain, reverse kyphosis (over curvature of the spine), and may even improve lung capacity.
