So I was perusing Facebook (as I normally do when I am procrastinating) and I came across an interesting article on the spinal curves of indigenous peoples vs. those of westerners. Acupuncturist Esther Gokhale, suffered from back pain and spent twenty years trying to figure out why. Ultimately, after spending time with indigenous peoples from various parts of the world, she noticed that they had no back pain. She attributed this to their J-shaped spine, which is a spine that is straight, minus a curve at the sacrum.
As practitioners in an industry where back pain is often a client’s chief complaint, I thought this to be quite eye-opening.  I’d like to share the article with you all and get your thoughts:
