Taking control of your spinal health begins with thinking to the future
Our spines have finite shelf dates that are inherently shorter than our life spans. The resilience of our spines to compressive forces begins to wane as we grow, and the aches, pains and stiffness begin to set in. When you consider that the spine is a cornerstone of well-being, this is quite a torturous prospect- no one wants an old age filled with back pain, but many of the actions we take in the here and now will condemn us to exactly that. This paradox exists because we are inherently lazy: while no one plans for a crippled old age, the gratification of being sedentary in the here and now allows us to put off thoughts of being proactive about back care until the pain becomes to great to ignore.
At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we want to spark the fire of awareness regarding spinal longevity
Spinal pain is often part of a pattern of poor health. While many cases of back pain are related to acute injury or chronic conditions such as arthritis, equally as many are caused by lifestyle factors including poor diet, lack of movement and poor posture. Spinal longevity begins where these factors end: once you decide to start taking the health of your spine seriously, you will unlock a natural yearning for better diet, movement and posture.
