Modified Super Woman/Man Exercise for Back Strength

The Super Woman/Man is used to strengthen your erector spinae muscles.

These muscles run starting at the base of the skull down to the tail bone.  As the name states erector spine keeps the spine erect/straight.  So, getting these muscles stronger promotes better posture.

With our library of posture exercise, people can counter daily stress.  Also, recover and prevent spinal conditions and symptoms.

Here are the steps to the Modified Super Woman/Man Exercise

Warning: ONLY perform this exercise if you have no spine pain BEFORE this exercise.

Start lying on your stomach with your chin, body, legs, tops of your hands and feet on a pad or floor.

  1. Raise your chin.  Hold for 2 seconds, then relax.  This will contract the muscles from the back of the skull down to your upper back. 

  2. Raise both shoulders and hands.  Keep your chin relaxed.  This will bring your shoulders today to contract your middle back muscles. Hold for 2 seconds, then drop your shoulders and hands. 

  3. Raise your feet and knees.  This will contract your lower back muscles, glutes, hamstrings.  Hold for 2 seconds, then drop your legs and feet. 

  4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 two more times.  Increase hold time to 5 seconds for each step. Then go to step 5.

  5. Full Super Woman/Man: raise the neck, shoulders, hands, feet, knees in this order.  Hold for 2-5 seconds.  Then relax.  Repeat 2 more times.

Nancy D.’s Case Study of Recovery

Nancy came into the office for an exam and x-rays after having pain from the neck to the low back.  As a guest services employee at Disneyland, Nancy is required to stand and smile sometimes eight hours a day.

After x-rays and a consultation Nancy was shown her x-rays.  Here is our normal neck x-ray:

Normal curve, disc spacing between the bones, and alignment with the top spinal bone lining up with the bottom spinal bone.

Here is Nancy’s first x-ray:

In comparison to normal, you can see the straightening of the next (17mm Forward Head Posture), and narrowing of the disc spacing.  This will cause the vertebrae to loose motion then thinning out the disc.  This can cause neuropathy/pain locally in the neck and/or down the back and shoulders.

After weeks of chiropractic adjustments and added posture exercises, here is Nancy is working longer hours pain-free.  Here are her follow-up x-rays:

The forward head posture has been reduced from 17 to 11mm.  This is the result of increase spinal motion from adjustments and postural strength exercises.

And NOW she can keep the smile on her face at Disneyland.

Back to Work: Spine Recovery-Luis

Luis suffered with back pain for over 10 years.  As a union iron worker out of Los Angeles, his profession requires heavy steal lifting (up to 230 lbs), 8+ hours a day, 5+ days per week.  Sometimes on the ground and on high rises.

When Luis finally came to Euclid Chiropractic, he wanted to continue working, but was not able to.  His server pain and abnormal x-rays concluded to be a disc problem in his low back causing neuropathy.  If he had not been treated soon, Luis may have needed surgery.

Because of the intensity of Luis’s condition, he took months of Chiropractic treatment, physical therapy and progressive posture exercises.  Luis did this testimonial/review after seeing his improved x-rays and feeling almost 100% healthy.  Watch his short testimonial to see what Luis recommends.

Do you think his recommendation is correct?  Let me know in the comments.
