For most of human history, we moved. Every day. In varying intensities, durations and directions. Any given day may have involved walking, running, climbing, hunting, gathering, throwing, or moving something heavy. There are mountains of research that show that quality movement and exercise not only improves joint and cardiovascular health, but mental health, concentration, memory and attention are also strongly correlated to our activity levels. The reason we have a brain is to move.
Chiropractic care combined with functional movement(s) can bring your body back into alignment with your birthright of experiencing joy in the movement of your body.
Research shows that exercise has a very strong preventative impact on almost all of the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. It is absolutely critical that we adopt a wide variety of movement throughout the ENTIRE lifetime.
It’s unfortunate, but when we think about our health, most of us don’t think about how we move. This is a big problem in the US, as the leading causes of disability in the US are related to movement disorders (back pain, neck pain, other joint pain), and many of the leading causes of death are lifestyle related (Global burden of disease study, 2010). The biggest quality of life problems in America (and most of the developed world) are directly related to how we move.
While our health care system has done a decent job screening for most other chronic diseases, we usually don’t manage the musculoskeletal system until after pain, injury, or symptoms appear. To be blunt, we suck at being proactive with the largest functioning system of the body. We can address some of the biggest problems in public health by all moving better.
