Mobility Monday

Thorasic Spine: Why is mobility important?

The thoracic vertebra are located in the upper and middle back and consist of twelve vertebrae (T1-T12). The top of the thoracic spine attaches to the bottom of the cervical spine, the area of the spine at the base of the neck, and the bottom of the thoracic spine joins to the lumbar vertebrae, the part of the spine in the lower back. The thoracic vertebrae are designed for flexibility, stability, and power. They protect the important organs in the chest and help the body stand upright.

 The Banner is coming back!

Thanks to the efforts of all those who took on the Trans Tasman Challenge on the weekend we have won the banner back, by 0.8 of a point! It doesn’t get much closer than that! Thanks once again for your efforts. Also thanks to the coaches who helped make it all happen, especially Rocky and Lou who kept Saturday rolling along smoothly.
