Hello everyone, today is also the content of yoga anatomy. Today I will take you to understand the curvature and reverse arch of the cervical spine.
Then we often hear that someone whose cervical spine is a bit straightened, or whose cervical spine is arched again, many people may not have this impression. They have never heard of these two words, so today Explain it to everyone.
What does that straight and reverse bow mean? What state does the cervical spine represent?
Everyone knows that the curvature of the cervical spine is originally convex. As mentioned in the previous article, the entire spine of our body has four bends, the cervical spine is forward, the thoracic spine is backward, and the lumbar spine is forward. The sacrococcyx is back. When our spine slowly straightens, it loses the original curvature of our cervical spine. Then our whole head is very heavy, the average male is 6.5 kg, and the average female is 5.8 kg, so if we look down at the phone often,
It’s just like a picture. If you look at the phone when you hook your head, it will slowly make your spine go down from the position of the head. The traction force, so it will slowly straighten, and then continue to lower your head often, you will find that the cervical spine will become like this in the picture, this is the reverse bow.
