The main principles of SMS exercises
The SMS exercises combine 3 important components:
movement - optimal coordination of movement
muscle apparatus - muscle chain formation in the shape of descending spirals -spiral stabilization
spinal response - centralization - allignment into the vertical axis
- traction - stretching upwards - the whole spine - in the segment - elevation of the intervertebral disc and expansion of the intervertebral joints
The main cause of back pain - vertical stabilization of movement
The main cause of back pain is increased muscle tension in vertical chains -increased tension in back muscles compresses the vetebrae against each other and creates pain.
