Why Movement Is Crucial

man lacing up his running shoesDuring their respective battles with degenerative spinal conditions, Christopher Reeve and Stephen Hawking had others move their limbs. Reeve and Hawking understood that movement was beneficial. Though sadly they both passed away we can take lessons from their extraordinary lives.

The Benefits of Movement

Did you know that you would die without movement? It’s essential for every area of health. Movement can

  • Boost mood
  • Assist with weight loss
  • Help maintain strong muscles and bones
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce the risk of chronic disease
  • Boost the immune system

Avoid Hypermobility

People may say that they can crack their neck and move the bones in their back. However, the problem is they’re shifting the bones that are already moving properly. When that happens, they’re creating a twofold problem. The issue is the ones that aren’t moving properly are getting moved even less, and we’re making the joints in the area that are already moving well shift even more. That causes hypermobility which can result in even more problems.

Turn the Lights Up

Issues from lack of movement don’t pop up overnight. It’s like walking into someone’s house, and they don’t realize the lights have been dimmed until they turn them way up. That’s what we do with a lot of people. We help turn the lights in their life up through chiropractic. The result is improved movement and optimized function.
