Spine exercise video series

Below are a number of exercises that are typically called stability exercises.  While this might be true they are really movements to me.  These movements can make you stronger, can calm down your pissed off nervous system and can increase your capacity to withstand stress.  We typically say that they increase your stability but I think it is more complicated.  They are many reasons to do these exercises and if you are unsure please ask.  The body is smarter than we are.  If our spine could talk I bet it would be pretty condescending discussing how we try to explain its function.
