Celebrate 125 Years of Chiropractic!

Published September 22nd, 2020 by Dr. Hoder

This past Friday marked the 125th anniversary of chiropractic care. A lot has changed since then, but the importance of chiropractic adjustments has only grown. Here’s why chiropractic is so important in today’s world.

Increased Inactivity

We are more immobile and inactive than ever before. Why? Probably because there is so much entertainment right in the palm of our hands! Kids no longer have to play outside to find something to do – they can just turn on the TV. Adults are the same. Just reach for the nearest phone, tablet, computer, or remote. Add in all the hours sitting from work and school and our bodies are becoming inflexible, weak, stiff, and painful. Chiropractic care helps negate this phenomenon by correcting issues within the spine, which helps eliminate pain and stiffness and promote movement.

Limited Natural Movement

You might think life has always been this way, because people don’t really exercise less than they used to, right? The problem isn’t whether or not people are hitting the gym. It’s that natural movements that used to be incorporated in everyday life simply don’t exist. We used to have to walk everywhere, now we have cars. We used to grow and/or hunt our own food (or at least some of it) and now we don’t even have to go to the grocery store – we can get it delivered. This convenience is helpful is so many ways, but it isn’t necessarily great for our health.

Our Focus on Health is Less than Ideal

As a society, our focus on health hasn’t been top-notch. It’s mentioned from time to time and there are certainly fitness enthusiasts out there, but as a whole, we don’t pay enough attention to our wellness. This means we suffer from more illnesses, carry around more weight, and have trouble staying well. Through gentle spinal manipulations of the spine, the chiropractors at Markson Chiropractic help keep the spine healthy, which promotes better health for the entire body. Chiropractic isn’t a cure-all, but it is a step in the right direction for achieving true health.
