It's Good to be on the Go

Published August 30th, 2015 by Dr. Hoder

There's no getting around it. We all live busy lifestyles whether we like it or not. But, all this business seems to involve sitting for extended lengths of time. This can lead to chronic joint pain and tightness that will eventually keep you from doing those active things that you love. 

Mobility is the key to being able to do whatever you want, and it's also a great way to stay healthy. So here are a few things you need to know to improve your range of motion:

Understanding Range of Motion

Range of motion is the mobility of the joints in your body, measured in degrees of a circle. As long as you're healthy your joints should maintain a normal range of motion that will enable you to move freely, carry on your daily activities and simply enjoy life. Injury, obesity, poor posture, a sedentary lifestyle, aging, and spinal issues may impair your range of motion and flexibility.

Move So You Can Live Life!

Most people visit a chiropractor due to back pain, neck pain, and joint pain. Regular chiropractic care can help to maintain your health and your normal range of motion, regardless of your age. The more you move around the better off your spine and nervous system are.
