Why Spinal Maintenance?

Why Spinal Maintenance?

You don’t expect to give your teeth a very good clean one morning and then only brush them again in say, 3 months’ time. Your teeth are in everyday use and need regular maintenance.

You can’t expect to get and keep your body fit by going to the gym every so often, say even once a month. You need to exercise several times a week to stay fit.

You don’t expect your car to be reliable and serve you well without regular servicing and maintenance.

It’s similar with your spine.

The spine consists of 24 movable vertebrae to allow us to bend, twist and turn but with this flexibility comes the risk of spinal occlusions (minor vertebral misalignments).

The causes of spinal occlusions are many, and besides the more obvious causes like car accidents and a poor lifting action, the following are the most common:

    • Sport
    • Work
    • Minor slips, bumps and falls
    • Poor posture
    • Stress
    • Sleeping habits

In short, spinal occlusions are caused by everyday life. The body can and does correct these occlusions but unfortunately not in all cases.

The impact of those spinal occlusions that persist is interference on the nervous system which is the communication system through which the brain runs the entire body. Poorer communication means reduced function and performance of the body.

To ensure optimal functioning of the nervous system and therefore the optimal function and performance of the whole body, long-term regular maintenance of the spine is the answer.

Just like you have your car serviced regularly, get your spine checked regularly. The difference with your car is that if the engine seizes up, you can buy a new one. When your body seizes up because of neglect, it’s too late.

Don’t use spinology as a patch-up. Use it intelligently, the way you get your car serviced, get your body serviced.


Spinology Centre offers long-term affordable tariffs and flexible hours. There are also family tariffs to encourage parents to bring their children. Children have the most to gain as their spinal occlusions will be corrected sooner, avoiding the typical long-term cumulative damage that occurs in adults who only start getting their spines checked much later in life.
