Taking a Moment to Appreciate Movement
A body in motion will stay in motion- an extrapolation from Newton’s Law of Motion
This is a central tenet of our philosophy at Scorca Chiropractic Center- in order to keep you moving and independent late in life, we need to make sure that the structures that support movement are maintained. And this work starts now! It may surprise and upset you to learn that we are treating more people than ever in their twenties whose bodies are suffering the effects of sitting too much. And while the spine isn’t designed to last forever, there are steps we can take to keep your body balanced and upright despite aging.
The spine is linked to every movement we make during the day
Not only through nerve communication that initiates movement and reaction, but also because of the sheer amount of tissue that connects to the spine. The majority of biomechanical movements are initiated by the core muscles, and these same muscles help to stabilize, absorb and transfer forces throughout the body so that no one structure or muscle becomes overburdened.
That is the theory anyway- many of us let our core muscles degrade, then sit in poor posture for more than 8 hours a day and allow for our spines to fall out of alignment. This is the slippery slope that leads us toward an old age of significantly reduced mobility- with an unsupported spine, our bodies suffer.
