Partial KST Treatment

I use the Occipital Drop to find out where the disturbances are in the nervous system, then I use an instrument called an Artho-Stim to clear the disturbances. Now the mid back will feel better.

Upper back exercises to release tension and create more mobility. You can do these exercises several times a day at your desk to keep the upper back limber!

Thoracic Spine Release

Place your knuckles on your temples, thumbs down, and then bring the elbows together and apart 10 times. Do two sets of 10.

Thoracic Twist

Sit on a bench/chair – hands behind head (not locked), elbows out.
Place something between the knees like a pillow and squeeze it. This
releases tension in the lower back.
Arch the back and twist down and to the opposite side of your knee.
Chest and head up. LOOKING UP AT THE CEILING! This insures
the "Twist". Repeat 10 times on each side.

The Correct Way to Breath!

Breathing laterally (sideways) into your ribs will open up and gently massage the upper back with each breath you take. At first practice a few times a day but ultimately, this is the way you should always be breathing!

These are three very basic low back stretches that can help when your back is tight or in spasm.

Child's Pose

Get onto your knees and bend forward placing your forehead on the floor and your arms over your head on the floor, or along side your body.

Lower Back Rotation

This stretch helps to mobilize and relax the lower spine. Lie on your back with arms outstretched and knees bent and folded up toward your body.  Turn your head to one side and slowly lower your knees to the other side. Repeat this on both ides several times.

Glute Stretch

This stretch releases lower back muscles and creates more space for the vertebrae.
Lie on your back and bend one knee. Then place one ankle over that knee and pull the leg straight so the bottom of your foot is facing the ceiling.
