YOUR ABDOMEN
The three natural curves of your spine (at your neck, chest and lower back) are supported by the abdomen, back, buttocks, and thigh muscles. These important muscle groups must be kept strong and flexible to support your body and maintain a healthy back.
YOUR RIBS
Your rib cage is a very important structure that protects your vital internal organs such as your heart, lungs and liver. Twelve pairs of ribs attact to the spine in the back and wrap around towards your sternum (breast bone) where some attach in the front. Damage to one or more ribs can cause damage to the internal organs.
