Keep Moving, Stay Healthy
Spinal manipulative therapy has been around for 1,000's of years. In chiropractic we call it an "adjustment." The whole premise behind the adjustment is to assist the body in functioning and the adjustment helps the body move. Most human beings that have neuro muscular skeletal conditions acquire those conditions from the repetition of daily life. The bending, lifting, sneezing, carrying, sitting, mowing, etc. etc.- these are the causes of our spinal difficulties.
Very small % of spinal difficulties are caused by disease or pathology, thankfully.
What I am saying is that I need all of you to keep moving because movement is what keeps the body healthy. Whether it is stretching, exercising, working out, running, etc. All of these things have multiple benefits but the biggest benefit is when you move the body has a better chance of being healthy for all of its systems. Getting adjusted is just one of the ways to assist the body in functioning correctly.
Please try to remember to stretch in the morning like all of God's creatures do. Any animal that has a spinal column should do some stretching in the morning. If you have a pet at home, the first thing the pet does in the morning is stretch!
