Your back and spinal cord is important because it is solely responsible for your brain and your body to communicate with each other. The spinal cord is the pathway for impulses from the body to the brain, and from the brain to the body.

Your back supports and protects your spinal chord, which is why we must keep it healthy at all times – without it, we would just collapse to the ground.

However, due to our increasingly sedentary lifestyle, we are at risk of serious back injuries which can be pretty painful. Luckily for you, we have a few exercises which will improve the condition of your back so you can avoid potential health problems.
