Vladimir dedicated most of his life to the discipline of dance. He had 14 years of successful professional career in Ballroom dancing. But unfortunately, outside the dance life, Vladimir never took care of his spinal health. Due to this irresponsibility and huge training load, Vladimir started to suffer a lot from back problems. However he knew that Ballroom dancing is very beneficial for health. After some time he realised that without basic knowledge of spinal health and body alignment, dancing won’t give full range of benefits. And that’s how Vladimir started his exciting journey in finding a system or method to develop a healthier spine….
When they’ve met – the Spinedango® was born!
Running one of the busiest chiropractic clinics in Europe Vasily was always looking for new ways of spinal rehabilitation which are easy and fun. He realised that people who dance regularly rarely suffer with back pain or other spine associated problems. Human body is designed to move and enhancing this ability enhances health. Joints wear and tear much faster when the mobility is limited. Chiropractors help people to restore the flexibility and the strength of their spine and joints. That makes dance beneficial to spinal health and general health. Chiropractors recommend stretches and exercises but it is sometimes hard to make people follow the recommendations. Dance routines are much more exciting and entertaining and people gladly agree to dance to get better.
Both individuals dedicated their career to enhance people’s life through a better control over their own body and systems.
The name Spinedango® was suggested by contemporary London artist Victor Ivanov on the basis of Fandango (traditional Spanish dance) mentioned in Freddie Mercury song and a precursor of Flamenco (Scaramouch, scaramouch will you do Fandango?) Fandango and the Spine rehabilitation through dance gave the system its unique name – Spinedango®
Our posture and habits are just the result of long term conditioning. This conditioning involves mechanical (muscles and joints) and neurological (brain and nerves) patterns. For example, for someone with forward rounded shoulders – mechanically, some of their muscles, ligaments and tendons are shortened and other ones are lengthened and weakened as a result of slouching over computer for 10 years – this is mechanical aspect.
The neurological aspect would be the fact that their nerves and brain are conditioned to the position and tone of all the mechanical parts and will maintain that the way it is. Using your free will you can change both the muscular patterns and the way brain and nerves control that. But where do you start and is it easy? Because the mechanical aspect of slouched shoulders is not anatomically normal, with time, some problems may develop in the system. Maybe a shortened tendon becomes inflamed, or out of alignment shoulder get injured with smallest of efforts.
To prevent that happening, you need to correct both – the way your brain and nerves see and command the area (shoulders in this example) and the mechanical aspect of it – the flexibility, the alignment and the circulation and supply. This is often called “neuromuscular” as it is related to both aspects at the same time. This can be done in many different ways, but normally through exercise and efforts of better posture.
