To Move or Not to Move...

There is no doubt that the essence behind the chiropractic adjustment and therefore the most magical part of the chiropractic adjustment is the ability to assist the body in moving especially the 24 vertebrae that we have. By assisting in that, everything else that is affected by our motion improves whether circulation, hydration, blood flow, nutrient flow, etc.

So because motion is the essence of living, the importance of recent articles that are titled "Sitting is the new Smoking" is understandable.

Scientists and researchers are convinced that by being inactive and sitting from general inactivity or at the job you work at can create physiological problems. In their humble opinion this inactivity or sitting and not changing positions can be as detrimental to our health as smoking has been. It makes sense!

So for all of you at jobs that require sitting at a computer for hours a day, and hours a week, please keep in mind the importance of getting up and moving around while changing positions at least every 45 minutes. By doing this you avoid, to some degree, the detrimental effects on our body from being inactive. 

There are many articles online that consider sitting as the new smoking. When you have time, check those articles out. A great one we found from The Mayo Clinics website, health website, can be found with this link:
