Did you know your superficial back line is a sheath of connective tissue that runs from your forehead to your toes? This week Psoas co-owners, Scott and Jenny, show you how to stretch your superficial back line (SBL) so you can keep it strong and healthy. Proper care of your SBL is important as its primary role is to keep us upright and to prevent us from falling forward. Consistent sitting or slouching will cause the SBL tissue to be tugged into positions that can cause calf cramping, spinal compression, or just general looseness which can make it difficult to maintain proper back and shoulder posture. The next time you think about kicking your legs up after a long days work, try relaxing into this stretch by opting for a wall instead of the couch.
