What is your favorite thing about October? The crisp air, pumpkin spice lattes, the beautiful colors as leaves change and begin to fall? We love all those things but would have to add our own favorite to the list: the spine! October is Chiropractic Health Month and October 16th is World Spine Day. There is much to celebrate about a healthy spine, as it serves the entire body in tremendous ways.
The spine is made up of over 100 joints, which is why you have such flexibility and movement within your spine. It is part of the nervous system, which is the system that relays important messages from your brain to the rest of your body. Together, the spine and the brain comprise the central nervous system. When you experience problems with your spine it drastically impacts other aspects of your body as it is truly central the wellbeing of all bodily systems. Spinal problems from injury, scoliosis, sciatica, herniated discs, and osteoporosis can lead to back problems and pain. In fact, 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain in their lifetime.
The spine is such an important aspect to our body, so make sure it is in good hands!
Chiropractic is a health care profession that specializes in the treatment of the spine and joint conditions.
