Advancements in technology have filled our lives with devices that promote multi-tasking, enhance communication, help us get more accomplished and be more organized, however the benefits from the use of these devices come at a cost. What cost?
The average adult now spends more time: sitting at a desk, sitting in traffic, bending their neck to support a cell phone and typing on a computer than ever before. Each of these mentioned can create added stress and fatigue to a body and when added to the normal daily activities in the life of a body, it can cause the body to become, over time, misaligned, compromise the nervous system and cause pain.
When the nervous system is compromised due to spinal misalignments, then our bodies are not able to adapt to the environment and function at their optimum.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) approximately 29% of adults currently suffer from back pain, women are twice as likely to experience back pain than men, and about 80% of adults will experience back pain at least once in their lives.
With the ever-growing possibility of misalignment from daily life or accident, it becomes a wise choice for each of us to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle complimented with a proper diet, exercise program, nutritional supplements, work-to-rest time balance and informed decision making with relation to medical care and preventive care.
