"Trunk" Driving: The Influence of the Thoracic Spine

Author: Craig Faeth

Have you ever been driving at night, or any time, and been behind another car swerving all over the road? You cautiously slow down, keep the car in front of you, and look for the best opportunity to pass safely. Imagine that the thoracic spine is that car, only it isn’t swerving. The reverse is true. It is losing mobility as time passes. Subtly, your function is impaired due to this decreased mobility, and your body (your car on the road) begins to compensate. Instead of slowing down, your body begins to over utilize other joints and muscles to carry out the same function.
