"If you don't use it, you loose it!"

"If you don't use it, you loose it!"
Sounds simple enough right? Your body tends to be very similar to an automobile. Just like a car, your body needs good fuel (food and water) and regular maintenance (exercise and movement) to run well and stay well.
If you park a car for 50 years, what happens to that car? It breaks down! The body of the car rusts (deteriorates), the tires go flat and I guarantee if you try to start that car after 50 years of non use, it will not start!

Your body is the same way, if you park it (in a chair) for 50 years, I guarantee it's not going to move and function well. It's as simple as that "if you don't use it, you loose it."

We have a sitting epidemic in America. How many hours did you sit yesterday?

The longer we sit the more dysfunctional our bodies become. Joints get misaligned from lack of movement and poor posture, digestion slows, and we begin to break down at a much faster rate than necessary!

How do we resolve that issue? Very simple: START MOVING!!

We tell patient's with spinal issues that have resulted from chronic sitting to not sit longer than 30 minutes without moving and stretching. We also suggest the use of a vestibular disc to sit on or replacement of your desk chair with a swiss ball. Other than that...get off your butt and start moving!

Your body, specifically your spine will thank you. You will thank yourself 50 years from now when you don't have deteriorating discs and spinal joints, when your vertebral discs are "well inflated," and you can still move.

Where does chiropractic come into play with that? Like a car needs a mechanic a spine needs a chiropractor. A simple adjustment from a chiropractor is a great way to maintain your body's proper alignment and keep you moving at 100%

Get checked today by your chiropractor before your "check engine light" of pain comes on.
Prevent any issues that might come from "parking" that body all day, all month, and all year.

Move! Feel better and enjoy life more.
