ROCK THE SPINE: THE REVERSAL OF THE GNARLY-HEADED COMPUTER HUNCHBACK
By: Janet Egerer

March 2, 2018, marked day one of my families Spring Holiday. As many of us know it takes some time to detach from work and attach to “doing nothing.” Naturally, that very evening I took notice of a table of 20 people, 18 of whom were slouching severely. Logically, I thought, ‘Wow this would make an interesting blog for PYP.’ The only two people that appeared to have a strong erect spine were a statuesque woman wearing a “rock the spine” chiropractic care t-shirt, and a very fit man sitting next to her who I assume was her husband, #gorgeousposture!

In today’s world we live in what I like to quantify as ‘INation,’ hand-held electronics, laptops, desk tops, smart phones, gaming systems… Evolution and technology has allowed for cessation of movement and a deterioration of vital strength and replaced it with speed and efficiency. We are no longer moving as we were designed and our overall biomechanical function is more in tune with inaction than it is with action. There is now a continued rise in the trend of obesity, a deterioration of musculature and a rise in disease. Our culture is now fraught with what in the fitness industry is known as Kyphosis, or excessive curvature of the thoracic spine causing neck and back pain, you may know this better as, hunchback. With even more need to ‘get the job done’ sedentary life is our now norm, sitting at a desk, checking emails, designing websites, making sure our SEO’s are just right, keeping up with social media, you get the idea. These self-put-upon pressures have taken our upright and mobile society to a pain stricken and obese world.

So how is this relevant and why the hell am I reading this? Does any of the above ring true to you? Because PYP can help. Many of these postural deviations can be reversed with attention. The PYP team are huge proponents of, ‘we move this way now, so we can move this way later.’ We want to give you a digital detox, a turn around on your T-spine, a step back in to mobility and functional movement. We know that the intervertebral discs make up 25% of our spines length. The more we sit, as we age, the less we move, the more decrease we see in our spinal column length. Maintaining a fluid, hydrated and healthy spine requires movement, so maintaining a healthy exercise prescription is critical to our vitality. Look to explore some type of yoga practice if you find that you are constantly seated and huddled over your device. Yoga provides, the meditation and mindfulness we all so very need in our ever-demanding lives, along with the strengthening and stretching that is essential in our physical well-being. Perhaps consider taking Pilates Reformer, for lengthening and strengthening the limbs, stabilizing your core strength and reproducing a powerful and strong posture. TRX and the suspension trainer is another superb modality that gives the body all the right tools to strengthen, stabilize, mobilize and integrate balance with options for both high impact and low impact movement should you choose.

Take notice if your fingers are the most mobile part of your body from all of your typing, if so, then we encourage you to consider exploring alternative ways to move. Reverse the degeneration of your spine and increase your overall body and mind power with mindful, functional and biomechanically safe movement at PYP. Move more, sit less, breathe more and be free of stress.

A doable at home exercise tip…

Lay flat on your stomach, extend your arms over your head like superman, take a deep breath in as you exhale engage your core and lift your limbs off of the floor as you keep your gaze on the floor
Repeat 15 times two times through

“I was referred to Annie in March of 2015, I just didn’t feel like myself. I was constantly tired, my body hurt and I felt like I was barely getting through my days. She did a complete analysis and diagnosed me explaining that my body was like a house and I was basically operating out of one room only. It made complete sense to me! I was just getting through my days; not an ideal way to live. With numerous focused kinesiology sessions, I felt my energy increase, muscles that had fallen weak or to sleep begin to fire again! I see Annie monthly to keep me in check, as it allows me to function and workout to my fullest capacity instead of just getting through my days.” -Kerry Bestwick

“After seeking treatment after treatment and Physical Therapy options for my SI (Sacro Illiac) Joint dysfunction for several years I opted to try another form of therapy as nothing seemed to be working with my active lifestyle. Kerry suggested I visit Dr. Annie as she had found an alternative way to get rid of her aches and pains. After about 6 sessions with Dr. Annie I had finally found relief! Dr. Annie and her husband Matt have recently opened their own practice specializing in Applied Kinesiology and I can’t give them enough praise or kudos for their knowledge and expertise.” -Janet Egerer

Here is what Reyes Active Body Chiropractic can do for you!

*Improve your flexibility and balance
*Renew your stamina and endurance
*Heal injuries faster without lingering issues

If you’re looking for something to help you grow in your yoga or pilates practice, or something to improve your overall day-to-day wellness and function, please check out our article!

Drs. Matt and Annie Reyes of Reyes Active Body Chiropractic offer something different to their growing base of patients. As Chiropractors, they have a basis of knowledge that enables them to diagnose and treat patients naturally and without the use of medications, but this is not what sets them apart. The use of Applied Kinesiology, an advanced form of Chiropractic that focuses on the body as a whole instead of only the spine and its nerves, is what really allows them to take their patient care to the next level. Applied Kinesiology allows for Dr. Matt and Dr. Annie to pull from a larger toolbox in order to diagnose and treat, where other doctors may become stumped.
Dr. Matt and Dr. Annie also utilize Kinesio-taping, a special method of taping, to continue the healing process for their patients. The tape is an elastic, latex-free tape, but the magic is all in the application. The tape is effective for all age ranges, from children to elite athletes to the elderly.
If you are someone looking to take your wellness and lifestyle to the next level, whether that means being able to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed to being able to compete with people half your age, we would love to help you reach your goals.
We are happy to offer free 15-minute consultations to make sure we are the right fit for you and your goals.

Sunday November 22nd, 18 teams, consisting of four riders each, will embark on a super special cycling journey. We will ride in honor of our fallen heroes in a charity cycle event honoring Special Operations Warrior Foundation. We are asking our teams to donate $200 to participate in the ride, but certainly encourage more if they are up for the challenge! These funds can be given straight from the riders or they can look to get sponsorships from, friends, family or local business. With such a an overwhelmingly huge success from last year, having raised over $10,000, we could not resist the opportunity to give back to this outstanding charity again!
Special Operations Warrior Foundations’ mission is as follows:
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical, or trade school; and offers family and educational counseling, including in-home tutoring, to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation also provides immediate financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel.

All riders will receive a Pedalthon T-shirt for their participation. Prizes are given for top dollar raised by a team and individual, top wattage produced from a team and individual rider and more! We have local sponsors on board for post ride delicious food and coffee and in house instructors assisting in a post ride stretch. In addition we have a live DJ sponsored by Nittany Entertainment for our Pedalthon Jam fest!

The support from the PYP community far surpassed our expectations last year. We along with the volunteers at SOWF, are so grateful for the abundance of generosity shown and look forward to another successful year!
