Most people when they stand with their feet together will lean back and compress their lower back. That’s going to cause them back pain and possible injury.
Look at Peyton Manning here.
Notice how leaning back and compressing, he’s given himself a paunchy stomach. Not attractive!
Be hot! Don’t be a shmo. Use Alexander Technique.
Now we hear Peyton has had an extra neck procedure.
There are more joints in the neck than anywhere in the body. A joint means a bone connecting with another bone. When the neck is tight or compressed, the body is going to be tight and compressed. You can’t be stiff in your neck and free in your body.
Don’t be a stiff-necked people. Listen to the Bible and get some Alexander lessons.
According to CNNSI: “Manning’s older brother, Cooper, 38, had his college football career ended before it began when he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal that required surgery to relieve pressure on the spinal cord. In Peyton Manning’s case, any evidence of stenosis is thought to be on the moderate side, league sources said, but the likelihood of further complications increase with each new surgery he undergoes.”
According to Dr. Loren Fishman, Medical Director of Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in New York City, Author, “Cure Back Pain with Yoga”: “Spinal Stenosis: This is where the canal inside the spine gets too narrow, compressing nerves. You may need an MRI to be sure of the diagnosis. Posture is the best conservative solution — Alexander Technique is probably the single best treatment, though PT is helpful too. Stenosis may worsen inexorably over time, and then it’s one condition where surgery may be the best option.”
