Exercises for the spine

Nature has made man mobile. That is why the movement is considered life. However, in our time, technology and progress man began to move much less.

Physical labor in the fresh air was replaced by work in the office at the computer. Due to lack of movement, problems with the spine appear.

How to get rid of them? Regularly performing exercises to strengthen the spine.

The most simple classes

The easiest exercise to strengthen the muscles of the back - walking. It helps to solve problems with the spine, saturates the body with oxygen and reduces weight.

It should start with a short distance. After a short period of time, it will be easy to overcome several kilometers.

To strengthen the spine, it is important to practice regularly. It is recommended to walk daily for one and a half hours. The pace is determined based on physical fitness and condition of the body

Experts talk about walking in the park or forest. However, it is not always possible to get out in such places.

In this case, you can use special equipment in the gym. Before the start of classes, light warm-up is required.

Flexible spine - the solution to many problems with his back. First you should check yourself for flexibility.

Standing straight, bend forward and try to reach the floor with your palms. If failed, the spine lacks flexibility. How to fix it?

  1. Sit on the edge of the chair. Lean on him with your hands. Feet spread shoulder width apart. It should lift the buttocks and bend back. Return to the original position.
  2. Move away from the chair at arm's length. Face him. Lean on your hands and kneel. Return to the starting position.
  3. Turn sideways to the chair. Pull out the toe of any leg, put it on a chair. Hands are on the belt. Try to squat, occasionally changing the leg.

There are no special instructions regarding breathing during classes. It can be arbitrary. The number of repetitions over time increase.

And if the loin hurts?

Exercises to strengthen the spine help to cope with another problem - back pain.

Their main cause is osteochondrosis. This disease is quite common. For her, do not matter age and position. You can get rid of severe pain with the help of several exercises:

  1. The first is designed to relieve pain in the lumbar spine. You need to do it lying on your back. Relax, bend your legs. Hands put along the body. Slowly raise the hips and buttocks to the level of the abdomen. Stop and linger in this position for a few seconds. Just go down slowly. This exercise helps to strengthen the muscles of the back and slightly relieve the exhausting pain.
  2. The initial position is the same as in the previous case. Legs stretched, loin pressed to the floor. Stretch the buttocks, arms behind the head, and legs bend. The spine at this point you need to pull out as much as possible. Then straighten your legs. Stay in this position until you feel tired.
  3. Now you need to roll over on your stomach and stretch your arms along the body. Straining the buttocks, raising both the legs and the top of the body at the same time. It is important that the head is level with the legs. With this exercise, the back is very well stretched in all departments.

Neck area

The muscles of the cervical region also need to be strengthened. That is why you should regularly perform a set of simple exercises:

  1. Lying on the floor, relax your limbs. Raise the body and legs by 10 cm. The muscles of the spine will immediately strain. Stay in this position for a couple of seconds. Repeat as possible 5 times.
  2. Put the clutch arms behind the head and press it to the back of the head. Put your hands on your head and vice versa. This exercise can be done anytime, anywhere. It quickly strengthens the muscles of the spine.

Shoulder girdle

The vertebrae located in the shoulder girdle belong to the thoracic spine. They are very mobile. With sedentary work, the shoulders become stooped, and the muscles are constrained.

To bring them to a normal state, you can use a special set of exercises. The load during the class is recommended to increase gradually:

  1. First you need a roller. It can be made from improvised means. It is located under the back. You need to gently roll the roller from the waist to the neck and in the opposite direction.
  2. Get up on all fours. Bend your back as hard as possible. Stay in this position for a couple of seconds.
  3. The hands are locked together and stretched forward. Inhale Exhaling, raise your arms above you while stretching your hands and fingers.

What if there is a hernia? How to strengthen the spine with this disease? Is it possible to carry out classes with hernia? The answer is simple - you can.

A special complex will help strengthen muscles, saturate cells with oxygen and improve the general condition:

  1. Lying on your back, bend your legs. Feet stronger to press to the floor. Raise the buttocks as high as possible and hold them in a raised position for 5 seconds. Breathing should remain smooth. Repeat 10 times.
  2. The initial position is the same as in the first exercise. Hands clasp the chest while keeping your elbows. Turn your head to the right. The body and legs turn in the opposite direction. Your knees should be relaxed.

Strengthening the back, treating back pain and alleviating the condition of spinal hernia are the consequences of regular special exercises.

They will help the spine to gain flexibility and stretch. Classes are especially useful for those who work in the office and moves a little.

A selection of my useful materials on the health of the spine and joints, which I recommend you to look at:

Also look at a lot of useful additional materials in my communities and accounts on social networks:

This article is not a substitute for medical advice from a doctor (neurologist, therapist). Please consult your doctor first to know exactly the cause of your health problem.

Exercise number 1. Crossbar

If you do not have a crossbar at home, it is quite simple to make it. The usual piece of pipe is fixed in the doorway and the whole training apparatus is ready. To stretch the muscles, you need to fix your hands on the crossbar and hang for 2-3 minutes. Hanging directly without performing any movements, the force of attraction will do everything for you.

Nobody could immediately hang for so long yet, so you can rest your feet on the floor and relax your knees. In this position, the upper part of the body will stretch. Over time, the muscles in the arms will become stronger and you will hang on the bar without any problems.

Exercise number 2. Pulling the neck up

When hovering on the crossbar, the neck area is not involved, therefore it is necessary to conduct a separate lesson for it. Stand up straight, fix the chin, eyes looking at one point. Pull your neck up, as if someone tied you to the top of the head. Only the neck should stretch, the chin remains in place. Hold the extended position for a few seconds, relax. Now we repeat the same actions, only in the extended position we slightly tilt the head to the right by 3 cm. After, too, but with an inclination to the left. Do an exercise in several approaches.

The same exercise should be performed 10–15 times, but at the same time, in a sitting position (on your knees), move your legs apart by 450. When tilting, move the body to the left or to the right side.

Exercise number 6. Back deflection

Take a pose on all fours. Hands should always be flat. Perform sagging:

Exercise number 7. Walking on the buttocks

Sitting on the floor, legs stretched forward. You can put your hands behind your head or bend your elbows in front of you upward (as you can at school at your desk). The back is flat.

After taking 10 steps forward, repeat the same, but back. Perform in 3-5 approaches.

Exercises to strengthen the muscles of the spine

The role of the spine in the body is great, it can not be overestimated. He is a support for the skeleton. Internal organs are attached to it, and the spine protects them from damage.

He is the main body providing the movement. To cope with all the complex functions, the spine must be strong, flexible, elastic.

Properly selected exercises to strengthen the spine allow you to keep it healthy and strong for a long time.

Diseases and injuries

In the modern world, where half of the population performs work while sitting, the spine lacks a daily load. The muscles that hold the spine weaken. The vertebrae approach and press on the discs, protrusions, hernias are formed. To overload the spine is also harmful, again the disks suffer.

Sitting work at school leads to incorrect posture. The physiological curvature of the spine changes in the direction of increase or decrease, the following pathologies arise:

Scales suggest that your body asks for help

Another problem of the spine is obesity. And here considerable importance is given to hypodynamia. A person consumes calories more than he spends. Overweight affects the spine no less than the transfer of constant weights. Weakened muscles are simply not able to hold the spine in the desired position.

If the spine is in good shape, you need to engage in disease prevention. When you are late with preventive measures, it is necessary to select and master complexes of exercises for strengthening the spine. They can be divided into the following groups:

  • developing spinal flexibility
  • restoring posture,
  • relieving pain
  • strengthening the muscles of the back.

At the site of localization, separate exercises for the neck, waist, shoulder girdle, and thoracic back were developed.

Walking is the best exercise for the spine. A large group of muscles is activated, the respiratory system is activated, and weight is normalized. The distance should be gradually increased. Over time, you can freely, without fatigue, pass several kilometers.

The exercise machine Twister strengthens a corset of a back

How to strengthen the spine? Systematically. It is believed that in order to maintain good physical condition a person must walk for at least an hour and a half every day. The pace is chosen with the obligatory consideration of a person’s age, state of health, fitness of the organism.

It is not always possible to walk every day in the park, park, pine forest. Breathing the dusty, polluted air along the roads is also harmful. For such a case there are sports halls, home treadmills.

Even minor vertebral bruises can lead to an intervertebral hernia. Most often, such problems are faced by athletes. Before starting a workout, when they warm up, most of the time is spent on exercises for the back.

The first, but not the most important, place in the conservative method of treatment is medication. Mostly they are resorted to in the advanced stages of the disease or in the period of acute exacerbation. One of the most important roles in intervertebral hernia is given to charging, massage, exercise therapy, gymnastics.

New form of calcium for the prevention and treatment

Osteoporosis is one of the most common causes of dietary supplements for people over sixty. This is due to the fact that with age, the bones lose calcium, become more fragile and recover worse after fractures.

Treatment in Israel of such injuries, as elsewhere, includes calcium supplements. But unfortunately, conventional calcium supplements are a rather capricious thing, which requires certain conditions for successful absorption, therefore, the search for new forms of calcium has been going on for a long time.

Farmer Joseph Ben has been growing blue crabs for many years and noticed that freshwater crabs are building up an old shell dropped during shedding much faster than crabs living in salt water, although there is much less calcium in fresh water than salt water.

The farmer became interested and found that freshwater crabs form a calcium stone in the digestive system, which, after dropping the shell, dissolves and is absorbed, saturating the body with calcium necessary for the formation of a new shell.

Scientists investigated the stones and it turned out that they consist of the same form of calcium, which is absorbed much faster than usual and which a variety of scientists have been trying to create for so long. An experimental drug called amorphous calcium was created on the basis of the results obtained.

    How to forget about back and joint pains ...

    We all know what pain and discomfort are. Arthrosis, arthritis, osteochondrosis and back pain seriously ruin your life, limiting it in normal actions - it is impossible to raise your hand, step on your foot, or rise from your bed.

    Especially strongly these problems begin to manifest themselves after 45 years. When one on one before physical weakness, there comes a panic and hellishly unpleasant.

    Exercise to strengthen the spine and neck

    Without a doubt, for every living being, movement is life. However, modern life puts forward its own conditions. Increasingly, people prefer the comfort of office space to heavy physical labor.. A significant addition to the decline of activity is the increase in the welfare of the population, in particular, the possession of personal transport.

    Who is at risk?

    Total mobility has expanded the boundaries of the risk group. Now it includes representatives of many professions.:

    • Designers,
    • Programmers,
    • Constructors
    • Drivers
    • Office workers.

    They are united not only by the many hours of immobility of the back, but also by increased attention, which, as a result, translates into nervous tension in the neck.

    The human body, prepared by nature for physical activity and not adapted to long-term static load, begins to falter.

    Such diseases as osteochondrosis and curvature of the spine are added to the number of occupational diseases.

    What threatens hypodynamia?

    Let's try to figure out what happens to the body during a long sitting or standing. The highest degree of risk threatens the upper spine, because they bear the main burden.

    The main function of the ligaments and muscles is to maintain the correct curves of the back and neck. Muscles experience stress, while blood flow, on the contrary, decreases sharply. If the exercises are not performed, then the person’s back muscles cannot be strengthened.

    At the same time, they will atrophy, and after a while the neck, back or arms will become numb..

    The working day ends, and by this time the length of the spine becomes shorter by a couple of centimeters. Constant tension causes compression of the vertebrae, which only special physical exercises for the spine can unclench.

    How to strengthen your back?

    Complementing exercises for the spine and neck, it is worth adding power and aerobic exercises. Best if stretching exercises are included. We emphasize that this point at the present time becomes the most important, as it allows you to protect against the dangerous displacement of intervertebral discs of the back.

    Unfortunately, modern man is not easy to find time for his own back, and even more so to do it regularly. Employment at work, family care, the Internet, television and other amenities of the metropolis - all this catastrophically interferes with sports activities.

    It is useless to convince that exercises for the spine and neck are necessary, the decisive move is still for the person. Either the desire to be occupied will be found, or not. Here you need to take advantage of popular wisdom - "Arise and go."

    7 "lazy" exercises for the back and neck

    Strengthening the back and neck in the pool

    For a person who has already begun to fight for the health of his back and neck, the best possible lessons in the pool. Being in the aquatic environment, the human spine is practically not under stress and is in its natural position. The pressure on the intervertebral discs, characteristic of the disease osteochondrosis, is practically absent.

    In the pool, a person can relax, and water will slow down any movement that is dangerous for the patient’s spine and neck.

    At the same time, the load obtained when swimming is quite noticeable in terms of training virtually all the muscles that support the back. Occupations in the pool are at the same time sparing and trainees for a neck.

    Special exercises for the back in the pool are registered as an element of physiotherapy exercises after the end of an acute attack of the disease. True, there are certain limitations that are removed on the recommendation of the attending physician or an experienced trainer.

    These contraindications relate to the cervical spine, which, while exercising in the pool, is still experiencing a certain tension. You should be especially careful if there is a feeling of stiffness in this part of the spine.


    In conclusion, you need to recall the organization of the workplace, which plays an important role for office workers. One of the most common mistakes is that a person keeps his elbows in weight. The chair must be chosen so that the forearms are free to rest on the table..

    The elbows, when working with the mouse and keyboard, must remain motionless while the hands are working. The center of the monitor should be located at least half a meter and slightly lower than the neck. If you follow these simple rules, the health of the spine and back can be successfully preserved..

    Thus, the entire cycle of exercise therapy consists of three main links: warming techniques, the load on the muscles of the back and spine, relaxation.

    Recommendations for practicing at home:

    1. Gymnastics is performed in the morning, daily.
    2. Classes should be fun.
    3. If worried about acute pain, you can not engage.
    4. After physical exertion, the appearance of mild muscular pain is possible, this indicates the proper functioning of the muscular system.
    5. To relieve pain and relaxation, you must take a shower or bath.
    6. For each section of the spinal column, certain exercises have been developed to achieve the strengthening of muscle mass.

    Warming techniques

    They represent a warm-up before performing the main part of the exercises. These exercises improve blood flow to the muscles, provide them with oxygen. Also the muscle tissue becomes more elastic and flexible, the conduction of nerve impulses to the muscles is enhanced.

    1. Deep breathing movements are performed - inhale and exhale.
    2. Movement shoulders - up, down and circular movements forward and backward.
    3. Head movements are up and down, left and right.
    4. The forward movements of the arms back and up, as well as to the sides from the position of the arms bent at the elbows.
    5. Tilts forward from a standing position, with arms freely lowered, which must be lowered as low as possible.
    6. Squats.
    7. Circular movements of the pelvis, relaxing the lumbar muscles.
    8. Walking on the spot, with a gradual tightening of the knees up.
    9. Easy running on the spot.

    All exercises are repeated 2-3 times, daily performance at home is recommended.

    Load techniques for back muscles

    Mainly performed in sports halls, using special simulators and accessories, as well as without them. At home can be applied improvised means, home sports equipment. Each method is performed 10–15 times, depending on physical fitness and the state of the spine.

    1. Lying on the abdomen, the upper and lower limbs are raised as high as possible and held for a few seconds. You can lay hands on his head, there is a complication of reception.
    2. In the same position, only the upper part of the body is lifted.
    3. Effective exercise therapy with fit bol.
    4. In the supine position with the legs bent at the knees, the back is twisted to the right and left.
    5. In the same position, exercise scissors and a bicycle.
    6. In a standing position on all fours, simultaneous abduction of the opposite upper and lower limbs is performed.
    7. We select sets of techniques with dumbbells.
    8. Pull-ups on the horizontal bar.
    9. Gymnastics on the rings.

    Gymnastics to relax the back muscles

    Physical therapy and gymnastics are completed with relaxing techniques for the back and spine, which allow you to restore proper breathing and pulse, relax the muscles of the back.

    By the end of classes, as a rule, there is a decrease in the rate of physical activity. Shaking, shaking, rotating limbs, patting, stroking, rubbing, as well as deep breaths and exhalations are performed.

    Without these techniques, it is impossible to complete the session, since heated muscles are prone to injury and damage.

    Exercises to strengthen the muscular system of the back and spine are indispensable and indispensable for maintaining the health of the body. Properly chosen gymnastic complex, exercise therapy, healthy and strong muscles - the key to human vitality and mobility. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, to avoid heavy physical exertion.

    The structure of the spine

    To begin with, let's consider the structure of the spine itself, because it is the supporting element of our skeleton, as well as compare the healthy spine and osteochondrosis.

    In the spine, there are 4 main elements:

    1. Nerves and the spinal cord itself.

    2. The muscles surrounding the spine.

    3. The vertebrae themselves (with the existing processes).

    4. Intervertebral discs.

    If one of the above elements is damaged, the entire spine suffers. In osteochondrosis, all these 4 elements are always involved in the pathological process.

    Disease osteochondrosis occurs when the spinal muscles begin to weaken and lose their function of support. When the muscles are in good shape and not weakened, they are the main support for the spine. Thanks to these muscles, the load on the spine is evenly distributed, which serves to protect the spine from injury, and also prevents rapid wear resistance. But in the case when the muscles are tired or lose their tone, they are simply not able to perform their main function. The entire load goes to the spine, which actually causes the intervertebral discs to settle first, their deformation, and then the formation of protrusions and hernias. In parallel with this process, various pain symptoms begin to appear depending on the localization of the process. Moreover, they can manifest themselves both at the very beginning of the process, and already at the advanced stages.

    Therefore, strengthening the spine is an integrated approach. You need to perform not only exercises, but also follow certain and relatively simple rules that will help you strengthen your spine as efficiently as possible.

    How to strengthen your spine?

    Below are the basic rules for strengthening the spine at home, which should be carried out systematically and with full dedication.

    Lifestyle change. In fact, strengthening the spine begins with lifestyle and everyday habits. All this together is very important: gait, posture, sitting at a computer, etc. All harmful habits can affect the state of the spine, so you should get rid of them.

    3 habits for a healthy spine!

    • Walk more! With regular walks, you increase not only the blood circulation of the spine itself, but also all the surrounding muscles, as well as ligaments and tendons warm up.
    • Keep your back straight! With incorrect posture increases the risk of osteochondrosis and back pain. Therefore, you should always maintain posture and all the natural curves of the spine.
    • Short breaks at the computer! Do every hour a break for 5-10 minutes, this is the minimum that will allow you to get rid of overstrain and fatigue of the back muscles and ligaments.

    Do exercises to strengthen the spine. The muscles of the spine is the only support for him, without which he is simply unable to withstand the load and remain at the same time in a healthy state. Therefore, it is so important to exercise the muscles of the spine: tone, strength, elasticity and blood circulation. If you exercise regularly and correctly (at least 15-20 minutes a day), your muscles will become stronger and more resilient, and your spine will receive a powerful frame. They will take on the load that allows you to relieve tension from the spine. Below are exercises to strengthen all spine at home.

    Massage. To strengthen and maintain the spine, it is recommended to conduct back and neck massage courses in 5-10 sessions. If there is no such possibility, then at least do self-massage.

    Proper and balanced nutrition. What we eat, then enters our body and to all tissues, so the spine is no exception. He gets everything you ate (nutrients and vitamins). If you eat food that is harmful and poor in vitamins and minerals, then the spine will receive only toxins and “empty” substances. But if you have a balanced diet for all nutrients (proteins, fats and carbohydrates), vitamins, fiber and trace elements, then the spine with all the surrounding tissues receives full support. Therefore, try to eat more natural and natural products, reduce the consumption of semi-finished products, preservatives and dyes. Try to replace harmful products with useful analogues.

    To consolidate the material, you can watch this video, which discusses in detail the issues of strengthening the muscles of the back, the development of flexibility and stress relief in the muscles:

    • Swim and dive more - this will strengthen and improve the condition of the spine as a whole.
    • Use special orthopedic insoles and corsets.
    • Drink useful teas to strengthen the spine: dog rose, rowan and hawthorn.

    Causes of destruction of vertebral structures

    Do not think that problems with the departments of the musculoskeletal system appear only in the elderly: many negative factors provoke the development of abnormalities of the supporting table in young people and middle-aged people. If you do not strengthen the back and spine, then you can get a "bouquet" of intractable chronic diseases.

    Negative factors:

    • lack of vitamins, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, manganese,
    • insufficient fluid intake,
    • the habit of hunching while working, watching TV,
    • unwillingness to pay attention to physical development,
    • sedentary work,
    • hard, low-quality water with an excess of mineral salts and chlorine,
    • professional sport: all types associated with high risk of injury, overload, weight lifting,
    • by occupation, you have to stand or sit for a long time, tilt your head,
    • low motor activity
    • hormonal failure during menopause, against the background of which vertebral bodies are destroyed - osteoporosis develops,
    • lifting and moving heavy loads
    • scoliotic changes, osteochondrosis, kyphosis, spondyloarthrosis, other diseases of the spine,
    • computer work, especially with improper height of the chair, uncomfortable position of the back and legs due to the use of uncomfortable furniture,
    • salt deposition, improper mineral metabolism,
    • bad habit of carrying a heavy bag in one hand,
    • congenital spinal defects
    • endocrine pathologies,
    • frequent stress, nerve overload,
    • high intensity training in the gym.

    Learn about the possible causes of pain in the upper back and the features of pain therapy.

    How to get rid of crunch in the neck when turning the head? Effective treatment methods are collected in this article.

    There are other harmful factors:

    • extra pounds or, conversely, excessive thinness, exhaustion on the background of serious diseases or the use of fashionable diets,
    • long wearing shoes with heels,
    • soft, high pillow, uncomfortable mattress,
    • there are close people in the family with pathologies of the supporting column,
    • long stay in an uncomfortable position, including when performing garden and gardening works,
    • diving, falls, injuries, failure to use seat belts.

    How to strengthen the spine: general rules

    Five important rules:

    • Give up a sedentary lifestyle, but remember the dangers of overload. During the day, warm up, bend your knees, do neck exercises, get up from an office chair, walk. Sitting work is no less harmful for vertebrae and cartilage than standing and excess movement.
    • Listen to the advice of nutritionists, make the best diet. Refuse from alcoholic beverages, smoking. Do not eat foods that negatively affect cartilage and bone. Smoothies, excess salt, fried and fatty foods, pickled vegetables, sour fruits, items with purines, oxalic acid are of little use.
    • Clarify which exercises and sports are useful for the pillar, regularly engage. More often to be in the pool: doctors recommend not only swimming for the spine, but also exercises in the water.
    • Refuse to move goods whose weight exceeds the norm for a certain age and gender. Wear a supporting belt to reduce the load on the waist.
    • To reduce the risk of a negative impact on the spine: to arrange a sleeping and workplace, to refuse from a long stay in an uncomfortable position, especially with a bent back, head bowed.

    Gymnastics Exercise

    It is necessary to consult a vertebrologist or an orthopedic traumatologist, to clarify whether it is possible to perform selected exercises or the doctor will select a complex of physical therapy when detecting pathological changes in the support column. First, an x-ray of the spinal column is made to make sure that there are no heavy lesions of cartilage and bone structures. Even in the absence of unpleasant symptoms in the back area, the consultation of a specialist provides benefits: the doctor often points to diseases that a person does not realize, corrects the level of physical activity and the type of exercise.

    Basic rules of employment:

    • Gradual increase in loads.
    • Targeted effect on weakened muscles.
    • Lack of jerks during occupations.
    • Breath control.
    • Regularity of classes.
    • Understanding the benefits of moderate exercise.
    • Comfort and hygiene during exercise.
    • Monitoring the state of the spine and the whole body, reducing / increasing the intensity of training depending on the state of health and the results achieved.

    Effective exercises:

    • first stage - warm-up, study of all departments - from neck to legs,
    • tilts with a gymnastic stick. The legs should be shoulder-width apart, the stick should be brought back to the level of the shoulder blades, the elbows should be bent. Slowly bend, stretch your back, linger for 3-5 seconds, smoothly rise. Strengthening the back muscles, increasing the flexibility of the support column,
    • from the standing position (legs together) bend over slowly, try to get the floor with your fingers. With a good stretch, you can hold your knees with your hands for a few seconds, then smooth your back,
    • lunges. Hands on hips, back straight, step forward widely, hold the thigh parallel to the floor, the angle at the knee is 90 degrees. The muscles of the back and the buttocks are strengthened, the coordination of movements is improved. Repeat attacks for each leg from 8 to 10 times,
    • side plate. Stabilization of the spine, overload protection, active strengthening of the muscles of the cervical area and back. Lie on the floor (on the side), elbows rest on a hard surface (be sure to place the elbow strictly under the shoulder). Tighten the muscles, lift the hips, stretch the neck: all departments should be on the same line. You need to start with 10 seconds, try to hold out for 30-40 seconds. Repeat for the other side

In such a position, the spine is actively relieved, blood circulation in the pelvis improves, pain and tension are reduced. Exercise duration - 2-3 minutes
    • Stretching the back on fitball. It will take a large elastic ball to practice. It is necessary to lie down on the fitball stomach, arms down forward, relax the back muscles. To keep the body in such a position, how much will happen, at least, two or three minutes.

    Rules and features of nutrition

    Exercises are important for strengthening the back and spine, but without the supply of sufficient nutrients, the bone and cartilage structures of the supporting column will be weak. Vitamins and minerals are contained in the available products, you only need to adjust the diet, give up harmful names. The best option is to boil for a couple, bake dishes, rarely eat fried, pickled, smoked.

    The table lists the nutrients and foods high in minerals / vitamins for spinal health. It is important to know: an excess of valuable components does not benefit; all products must be consumed in moderation.

    1 Exercise. Rolls

    I.p. - sitting on the floor pull the legs to the body, feet should be pressed together. Hands clasp the legs at the ankles, chin pressed to the knees. In this position, the back of the head, neck and back make one arc. Roll back onto your back and return to the starting position. Do rolls on the back from 10 to 20 times, while breathing is arbitrary. Important: it is necessary to carry out rolls only on a flat floor in order not to displace the vertebra and.

    Effect: This is a very useful exercise for the spine - it strengthens the spine and develops flexibility, and thus helps in the treatment of diseases such as rheumatism, brain diseases, and in addition, exercise strengthens memory.

    After exercise, relax a little and go to the next one.

    2 Exercise. Cobra

    I.p. - lying on my stomach, face down, heels and socks connected, chin rests on the mat.

    Rest your hands on the floor and lift the upper torso as high as possible, while the lower half of the abdomen does not come off right up to the navel. Throw your head back as far as you can, eyes look up. You need to breathe through the nose, arbitrarily, then slowly return to the starting position. Exercise repeat 5-10 times.

    For those who are already able to easily do this exercise, its more complex option:

    Perform all movements as described above — bend up and back, and then turn your head over the right shoulder so that you can see the heel of your left foot. It is important that the arms and legs remain in place while the lower part of the abdomen does not come off. Slowly turn your head forward and do the same, but turning your head over your left shoulder to see the heel of the right leg. Then crouch up again, throw the head back slowly and return to the starting position, go down. Repeat the exercise, but already observing a different sequence of movements - up, left, right, up, down.

    When performing this exercise, it is important to do smooth movements, to linger in each position for half a minute, for this you can slowly count to yourself up to 30.

    Effect: the spine becomes more flexible, slouching and other spinal curvatures are removed, beautiful posture appears, the work of the entire digestive tract improves, in particular, intestinal motility increases, and it is also a good exercise for the eyes. With this exercise you can cure sciatica.

    3. Exercise. Triangle

    I.p. - standing on the floor, legs apart wide enough, the distance between the legs - about a meter. Hands apart to the sides, palms down. Slowly lean to the left until you feel the tension in the right side. Aim with your left hand to reach your left foot, your right hand is stretched horizontally above your head, do not bend your legs! Hold this pose for 5-8 seconds, and then return to the starting position. Do the same in the other direction - to the right. Do 3-5 tilts to each side.

    For the more advanced - a complicated but very useful option for the spine, as it strengthens the lumbar region and thereby heals sciatica:

    Take the same starting position as described above. Slowly bend down, simultaneously turning in the waist, while the right hand moves towards the right leg, until it touches it, the left hand is raised up. The glance is directed at the fingertips of a hand held vertically upwards. Keep your legs and back straight while exercising! Hold this pose for 5 seconds and return to the starting position.

    Repeat the tilts in both directions at least 3 times.

    As you can see, in this exercise, in the lumbar region, not only does it stretch, but twisting, the vertebrae move more and this contributes to the relaxation of the intervertebral discs. The lumbar region is better developed and strengthened at the same time.

    Effect: Exercise strengthens the muscles that hold the spine, develops its flexibility, in the first version the side surfaces of the body stretch, which is useful for the waist, and in the second version, the lumbar spine is well developed and strengthened.

    4 Exercise. Bow

    I.p. - lying on my stomach, legs bent at the knees, stretch your arms, put them behind your back and grab your ankles - inhale. Then at the same time slowly raise your head, legs, torso as high as possible from the floor, cast your head back on holding your breath. Return to the starting position - exhale.

    This exercise also has a second option, for advanced, it is more complicated, but over time, you will also be able to do it:

    Perform all movements as described in the exercise above and then, on holding your breath, do 4-5 wiggles back and forth, return to the starting position, relax.

    Effect: exercise strengthens the gastrointestinal tract, forms a beautiful bust in women and strengthens the chest, and most importantly, it eliminates all the shortcomings in the development of the spine.

    5. Exercise. Fish

    The exercise consists of two parts - the first is aimed at stretching the spine, and the second part consists of vibro-gymnastics for the spine, as a result of which intervertebral discs are worked out, the cells are cleared of slags, and blood circulation is normalized.

    I.p. - lying on the back, raised arms outstretched lie up behind the head, legs straightened forward, pull the socks towards you. Begin to alternately stretch the legs, slightly moving the heels forward — sometimes left, then right, slowly counting to 5 for yourself. Make a few of those nice, slick motions. Then put your hands behind your head, under your neck, your elbows lie on the floor, put your legs together, stretch your socks over you. Begin to oscillate in this position to the right and to the left, like a fish in water. This exercise is useful to do 2-3 minutes in the morning and evening.

    Effect: exercise promotes the formation of individual vertebrae into place, eliminates scoliosis and other spinal curvatures, increases intestinal motility, normalizes blood circulation processes.

    You can include these exercises in the complex of your morning gymnastics. Regularly performing data exercises to strengthen the spine, after just a couple of weeks, you will feel that his condition will improve significantly, the pain will pass, it will become easier for you to bend and unbend when bending. In addition, you will gain proper posture and breathing, become more resilient.

    Do not try to immediately perform the recommended number of repetitions, start small - with 2-3 repetitions of each exercise. Remember that all movements need to be performed at a slow pace, fixing and staying in each position (start from 5 seconds and bring up to 30 seconds) in order to make the muscles stronger and stronger, able to better support the spine. If you have muscle pain the next day and fatigue appears, then reduce the number of repetitions, but do not stop doing the exercises. After a few sessions of pain in the muscles will be, as they become more trained.

    Only daily work aimed at working through the main parts of the spine will help you cope with radiculitis, cervical osteochondrosis, and other problems of the spine. Do not forget to give at least half an hour a day to maintain your spine in good condition. After all, his posture, flying gait, the state of all internal organs and systems in the human body depend on his health.

    To achieve the maximum effect of therapeutic gymnastics and for the full recovery of the spine, it is necessary to approach comprehensively and work out all the problem areas of the spine using the method of Elena Pluzhnik.

    Ordering targeted treatment programs, both on DVD discs, and in the electronic version, to the online store catalog.

    How to stop negative processes and strengthen the spine at home: gymnastic exercises, rules and eating habits

    The state of the supporting column directly affects the functioning of the body: any disturbances adversely affect cardiac activity, respiration, the digestive system, the central nervous system. With aging, with high loads and physical inactivity, the disks lose structure, become thinner, hernias appear, ligaments weaken, and intervertebral joints are destroyed.

    How to stop negative processes? How to strengthen the spine? It is necessary to pay attention to health, exercise, perform a set of exercises for the back, eat right. The recommendations of the doctors will help to preserve the elasticity of the muscles, ligament apparatus, bone strength.
