Hey everybody, Doctor Kevin here from the CENTER FOR HEALTH AND HUMAN POTENTIAL. Today, I’m actually sharing a message with you that was asked upon me by a little boy in the office who we’re going to call E. E asked me to talk about over-extending and bending back weight too far. And another question I often get all the time is, is it okay if I crack my own back?
Well, it’s not. So a lot of times when people are trying to bend back really far or twist really far, you’re actually doing a lot more harm than good. Even though it may feel good to have those pops or those cracks that you hear. Those are actually gases being released. When you do that, when you force it, you’re actually undoing all the work that we are doing.
The reason why is because when you forced your body to move into regions that aren’t supposed to be, it actually goes back to old patterns. But if you were to just wake up and move and like just twist to start walking and things move, that’s okay. Because that means your body’s making its own adjustments throughout the day.
Thank you very much, E for your input on having my topic for today. So I hope everyone is doing very well and take care.
