Tuesday’s Spondy Tip: Avoid The Snowball Effect

We have all heard of the snowball effect theory.  And if you have not, the snowball effect is when something starts small and quickly builds up adding size and building steam along the way.

This snowball effect theory can negatively affect you and your spondylolisthesis or spondylolysis if you are not careful.  Whether it be your daily stretching or exercise routine, healthy eating habits or weekly trips to rehab, you have to be cautious to avoid the snowball effect.

The snowball affect is something I have personally seen. Not only have I been affected by the snowball effect myself, but I have seen others affected as well.

Here is one of the main ways the dreaded snowball effect can affect you in a negative way….

Once you find an excuse or reason to skip that stretch, exercise, trip to the rehab clinic or healthy meal you may think, “that’s not so bad missing just one time”.

Then you quickly start finding excuse after excuse to skip your task and before you know it your pain and discomfort return and you are back to square one.  And square one usually involves pain and discomfort.

Avoid the snowball effect with whatever you do to help prevent your spondy from flaring up.  Avoid excuses at all costs and get done what you know will help your spondy.

Stay on track.

Stay consistent.

Stay dedicated.

And stay away from the snowball effect!
