There are several ways to improve your spinal health.  Regular exercise, can help to improve strength and flexibility of your spine and the rest of your body.  Studies show that persons who exercise regularly show decreased incidence of lower back pain compared with those who do not. Maintaining good posture is also essential, and can help prevent strain on the muscles and ligaments supporting the spine.
