Improve Thoracic Mobility with These Yoga Poses
Your thoracic spine is the upper and middle part of the back. Starting just below neck, and continuing down, those middle 12 vertebrae are essential for smooth and pain free movements.
Just like any other part of your body, you have to exercise it and keep it loose to ensure that you maintain maximum mobility. We teamed up with Black Orchid to demonstrate a few yoga poses that will help keep your back moving properly.

Why Keep Your Thoracic Spine Limber
Around 80% of Americans suffer from back pain.
A few simple yoga poses can help alleviate that pain, and keep you feeling on top of the world.
The thoracic is the backbone of the backbone. It’s the largest part of your spine, and accounts for a huge part of your mobility; including helping to keep your ribs moving properly so your heart and lungs function at full capacity.

Yoga is a great way to maintain the mobility, but if your spine is already “stuck” you’ll need a little help to get it loosened up.
Our chiropractic offices are in the same complex as Black Orchid, and we’re here to help keep you pain free and moving like you’re supposed to be moving.
