Why is vertebral decompression essential?

Whatever your professional activity, your spine is subjected to the forces of gravitation from the very first moment, to which are added the constraints of working positions, efforts, false movements, etc. The gravity “collected” throughout the day by your vertebral discs, veritable visco-elastic dampers located between each vertebra, leads to their gradual compression that can objectively be observed by a loss of 2 cm between morning and evening! !!

Fortunately, the night rest allows us to find our original size each day. With the exception that, as age comes, disc dehydration causes a progressive loss of size accompanied by an accentuation of vertebral curvatures.

It is not surprising that crushing pains appear during the day and according to the efforts and work positions! Whatever the age of your vertebrae, performing vertebral decompression can only be beneficial for your health.

Who should practice vertebral decompression?

Everyone from 7 years old to 120 years old!

Children to prevent vertebral deformities of adolescence, to fight against bad attitudes due to poorly adapted school materials.

Students to relax their muscles, de-stress themselves, take a stretching break far and away preferable to the coffee break.

The adults :

– If you work in an office and a fortiori on a computer.

– To limit the ptosis of the organs,

To improve the return circulation (venous and lymphatic),

– If your job requires handling, bad postures, or the same position for hours.

– If you spend a lot of time by car or on public transport.

Seniors :

To avoid vertebral compression,

– To limit the ptosis of the organs,

– To improve the return circulation (venous and lymphatic),

– To reduce the period of dependence, due to functional impotence.

Which exercises to choose?

To apply the 7th time of the vertebral regeneration method of the DOS BOOK (which concerns the decompression of disks), you have several different and complementary methods: suspensions, anti-gravity postures on inversion table which remain the only relevant means to try to regenerate disks and joints and to slow down aging by slowing down dehydration and thus settling.

More intense than self-stretching, these techniques are reserved for people, children and athletes. In other cases they can only be performed under the supervision of a practitioner. Today I invite you to put into practice the universal exercise of self-decompression sitting that has the double advantage of being able to be performed by everyone and especially anywhere.

An indispensable exercise integrated into everyday life: the suspension-decompression seated. This exercise is also described in the gymnastics back article

It alone can be enough to relax all the muscles contracted, relieve the stresses accumulated all along your spine. No need to do it for a long time but I advise you to do it often. It is always beneficial, except significant mechanical problem of the arm or the shoulder (sequelae of fractures, prosthesis …).

Starting position:

Lie well in the back of your seat, the lumbar spine slightly hollowed, the closed fists on the seat of your seat on each side of the hips, or the hands resting on the armrests of an armchair. Start by pushing the top of your head to the sky and looking straight ahead. Then you try to grow up by leaning on your fists or your hands, elbows tight and lowering your shoulders. Do not lift your chin.

Benefits :

You feel your spine lengthen and lighten up, your vertebral muscles stretch out, the neck muscles (shoulder lifts) naturally relax, your tummy tuck in effortlessly, your discs relax, the pains and tension subside . Hold the decompression-suspension position for a few seconds, slowly lowering. Repeat the movement between 3 and 10 times.
