Minimize your Shlepping...
Unfortunately the statistics show that 90% of human beings are going to have some degree of spinal issues. Fortunately most spinal problems are not caused by unusual causes. Fortunately, and this has been true since humans have wandered on the earth-the truth is that most spinal issues are caused by every day shlepping, walking, dragging items around, more shlepping, bending, lifting, even more shlepping etc. etc. The repetition of all of these movements create neuro-muscular skeletal dysfunction. That is why chiropractic for the most part is so successful-it addresses the cause of our spinal issues.
Most of the shlepping that we do is unavoidable so therefore try your best too;
1-Lift properly-bend your knees
2-Watch the ergonomics at your work station
3-Change your position often while at your desk
4-Do stretching consistently while also exersising
5-Eat as healthy as you can
These are some things that if done consistently will increase the odds of you not having severe issues with your neuro-muscular skeletal system.
As usual, we are here in the office for you and to answer any questions that you may have. Please don't hesitate to call anytime. Always remember and never forget "Keep the shlepping to a reasonable amount."
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and staff
