Why “core strength” or “good posture” aren’t the right answers to back pain

When conventional practitioners see slumping shoulders with accompanying discomfort, patients are often told to improve their posture by holding their shoulders back and strengthening their core muscles.

While core strength is a valuable part of a healthy body, Dr. Jesse has discovered that muscles on their own cannot restore spines to their proper position.

The first step to restoring a debilitated spine is Dr. Jesse’s First Rib Maneuver. This simple, yet powerful, correction results in an immediate and visible reversal of slumping shoulders. You will see how, in a fully relaxed standing position, the repositioning of the first rib pulls shoulders back to their original, comfortable position.
