Bottom Line: You probably don’t think too much about the force of gravity on your body as you’re walking around each day. It’s just something we all live with, but have you ever paused to consider how gravity is putting stress on your body’s bones, joints and nervous system throughout every minute of every day? After all, gravity keeps our feet on the ground, literally, by pulling our bodies towards the center of the earth.
Why it Matters: The effects of gravity on your skeletal system can lead to spinal degeneration and arthritic changes. In fact, gravity puts excessive stress on imbalanced skeletal systems, which in turn can slowly lead to early degenerative disease and neurological imbalances. We can’t decrease gravity or reverse the aging process, but you can make smart decisions about your health care and commit to staying active. One of the best ways you can stand up to gravity is by ensuring that your spine and brain are as healthy as they can be. That’s what Chiropractic care helps you do.
Next Steps: We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: being healthy is more than just a matter of how you feel… It’s a matter of how you function! That’s the primary objective. It’s wonderful to feel better. Functioning at your very best is genius! Stay consistent with your care, curiosity, and questions.
