You Only Have One of Them

Think of your back as the trunk of a tree. It supports everything within and without. Your spine is made up of 33 different bones by itself – each bone vulnerable to the pressure and the stresses you’ll be putting through. We live on an average near 72 years.

Think of your back as the trunk of a tree. It supports everything within and without. Your spine is made up of 33 different bones by itself – each bone vulnerable to the pressure and the stresses you’ll be putting through. We live on an average near 72 years. Now imagine 72 years of constant motion. That’s a lot for a back to uphold. It’s incredibly important for everyone to take care of their back as much as possible. If that means you have to visit a chiropractor in Cumming, then do so! There may come a time when our biomedical technology will arrive at a point where we can replace those delicate 33 bones with ease but that’s not now.

One of our poorer traits as a species is our difficulty with temporal context. We have a hard time looking into the future, planning for the future and so on. Yet it’s in our laters years that we’ll have the most trouble with our backs. After decades of working, moving, exercising and general wear and our backs are going to want to give up on us. We cannot give up on them! There are steps that we can take in order to mitigate the damage.

It’s not going to be easy. Exercising is not easy for most people. It’s going to even take dieting to some degree. Obesity is one of the leading causes for lower back pain; our bodies are simply unable to hold that kind of weight. A Chiropractor is educated and trained in order to provide the kind of care that is going to be necessary. Chiropractors may have once had a poor reputation due to some of their earlier, poorer training but recent developments have changed all of that for the better. Your back is the only one you have, care for it now.
