Exercises for compression fracture (video episode below)

Greetings from the Culpepper farm in Missouri!

Spring break gave us a chance to visit Rebecca’s parents and give some rehab and nutrition strategies to her Dad for his recent spinal compression fracture.

So you know me, I headed up river to share with you what I shared with him.

And a simple green thera-band is all you need.

Keep grounding and growing!

Dr. Steve

P.S.  Lots of cool stuff coming up in April as we look forward to being part of the National Park Service program, “Healthy Parks, Healthy People” program.   Very excited about this!

P.P.S.  As I mentioned in this episode, I have created a new “Fix Your Forward Head” program with a beta group pricing structure through April 2nd, 2017, but the self study version of the program should still be available HERE.

So if you’re dealing with neck and shoulder pain, headaches, thoracic outlet, carpal tunnel, or you just don’t want  your posture to keep getting older and older, join us here now.


  1. Thank you, Steve, for inviting us into your journey time. Thank you for always supplying so much great information. I ALWAYS learn so much from you.
    You’re the best!
    Keep it up.

  2. I am a personal trainer and I follow a lot of people (Gray Cook, Dan John, Eric Cressey, etc) and you add a lot of information that can be applied to the masses. Thank you for all the information you provide that I can pass on the my (mostly) middle age clients.

  3. Thank you ,for all your wonderful advice especially for space in my hip joint.
    Must get a green band to try these .

  4. Thank you so much for this great video! Broke my back in May 2020 and it’s better but not better enough for me. I’ve been wanting to do “something” that will strengthen the muscles in my back and arms. And these two exercises look like they are exactly what I need to be doing! Beautiful setting you’re in there! I’m anxious to get back out in the world and enjoy it! I’m thinking these exercises will also help with the pain I’m still having. Thanks again, now I just gotta go find me a green band!
