Frequently Asked Questions
Growing, active children constantly challenge their bodies into activities which can cause body stress. During gym and sports activities, children are often expected to put real stress on their bodies.

Posture is key, whether standing, sitting, or lying down. Preserving the natural curve in your spine will keep the stress levels down. If you are lifting anything, use your legs and keep the item close to the body. Also avoid twisting and lifting motions. Swimming, walking, and biking are great exercises that you can participate in without putting the spine in a stressful position. Also, think of the “navel lock” when you are being active. This will reduce the stress in the lower back and create strength in the abdominal area. To do this, just pull your navel towards your spine, but maintain normal breathing.
