How Does the Mike Arteaga’s Healthy Back & Neck Program Work?

The bones of the spine are like a stack of pennies that simply cannot stand without the muscles. The muscles act much like the multiple cables that radiate out from an antenna tower. If the cables were slowly loosened, the tower would become shaky, until eventually it’s joints would fail. Similarly, as the back muscles weaken, they become more lax and, like the antenna tower, the spine becomes increasingly unstable until the discs begin to fail. This can lead to an array of possible back problems as the other support tissue struggles to make up for the lack of muscle support.

Key to Alleviating Pain

Strengthening the spinal muscles to re-establish stability has proven to reduce or eliminate pain caused by herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, sciatic, arthritis and many other neck and spine conditions. Strengthening promotes healing in the effected area. Even if surgery becomes necessary, the back must be re-strengthened or the muscles will be permanently weaker.

How it Works

Our Healthy Back & Neck Program is a totally non-invasive, ongoing strengthening program that uses specialized equipment to safely and effectively isolate and strengthen the lumbar or cervical muscles that attach directly to the spine.

It begins with a one-hour assessment, in which the pain-free range of motion and current strength levels are tested. Based on this test, the first exercise session is performed. Initially, the schedule will consist of two 10-minute sessions per week, gradually decreasing in frequency to once a week and then moving to once every 3 to 4 weeks.

You do not have to be a member of the gym to participate.
