Forever "Not So" Young
I direct the following words of wisdom to my children's generation. My son is 26 and my daughter is 23. They are referred to as the Millennials or Generation Y (Why Generation Y- I have no idea). It is not my intention to bum you guys out but it is my responsibility to remind all you Millennials that between time, gravity, and repetition of our daily lives- your bodies will eventually start to "talk back to you."
I just want to send this out to the Generation Y-ers to raise your consciousness about preventative thinking for your bodies. Make sure you do a decent amount of stretching before you work out hard. If you do hurt yourself, get yourself checked out to make sure nothing is really wrong. Don't wait until you have spinal issues, give your chiropractor a call to get checked out- get your posture checked. Make sure you are eating a varied nutritional diet.
I totally understand these are things that you guys wouldn't think about because your young still. When you get to be in your 30's, the body starts to change and I want you guys to be ready for that.
Please don't hesitate to call. We could talk about this and I could give you exercise and postural stretches to do. Learn about chiropractic and adjustments even if you are feeling ok.
These are important things and it is my responsibility to remind you about this as I do with my own children.
Continue to have a wonderful and safe summer.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
