Neutral spine

The term ‘neutral spine’ describes the position of the spine when the natural s-shaped curves are all present and aligned.When the spine is in this position the stress on the passive structures of the spine (vertebrae and ligaments) is minimal and the risk of strain or injury to the lower back is minimised. It is therefore the ideal and essential position to maintain during daily activities and also during exercise.
