The cost of his unsuitable way of walking man pays it with various diseases of the spine. But the problem of osteochondrosis has never been as serious as it is today, specialists have concluded that osteochondrosis is one of the most prevalent diseases. The main reason for this problem lies in the very person: in the way of his life and in his relationship to his spine.
It is shameful how little we know about the spine in the best case, we will remember the pictures from the textbook in anatomy, and in most cases, we do not even think that the state of the organism is conditioned by the condition of the spine. For years we can treat pharyngitis, laryngitis, tuberculosis, inflammation of the kidneys and bladder, inconveniences in the sex area, wondering why treatment does not produce results, and not assume that the main cause is the disordered spine.
If we add to this the way of life that the modern man is leading, then it becomes clear why the diseases of the spine are so prevalent today.
We are a civilization that is very small. We are overeating, and we remain undernourished because we eat lifeless food. Muscles atrophied due to lack of exercise. From the wrong way of life, the spine becomes tight and deformed. Cartilage and discs between vertebrae are destroyed due to lack of physical activity and poor circulation of blood in adjacent tissues. The spine appears to be “dry”. Many people from 60-70 years old become 8-13 cm lower, and some in the old age even bend.
Of the many diseases that “reward” our spine, the most prevalent scoliosis is the lateral curvature of the spine. Often scoliosis occurs in children due to improper sitting in school desks, and if the spine of time does not correct, scoliosis is retained for a long time.
How is the “Goldfish” exercise done?
Initial position: to lie on the back, on a flat surface or on the floor, to lay your hands under your head and to stretch out, your legs also stretch as far as possible, the feet to rely on the heels, and the toes to stretch in the direction of the face. The heels and legs are glued to the floor.
Two ways to do Goldfish
a) during the exercise, the spine must be attached to the floor. The body vibrates left to the right, not up to the top. Only feet and neck can be raised.
b) a variant for beginners: the vibration is made by the partner. Giving the necessary pace, thus accustoming it to the body of new feelings and movements.
Now, several times, counting to “7” you stretch. As if stretching on different sides: with the heel of the right foot we make movements, how to crawl on the floor and we want to go forward. And with both arms outstretched we stretch the opposite side (left). Then do the same with the heel of the left leg (with the heel to pull forward. And with your hands to pull in the opposite, right side).
Then put your palms under your neck vertebrae, your legs to merge. Your toes stretch as far as possible in the direction of your face. In that position, start vibrating with your whole body, much like the fish swim. Vibrations should be made from the right to the left for 1-2 minutes. This exercise should be done every day morning and evening.
By correcting the curved vertebrae, this exercise removes the tension of the spinal nerves. Normalizes the circulation and coordinates the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. The exercise “Goldfish” harmonizes the nerves that are branched on both sides of the spine. And releases them from pressure.
