October is National Chiropractic Health Month
Northern Nevada Chiropractic supports the #Move4Life campaign to Prevent Back Pain, Reduce Disability and Stay Healthy and Strong for a Lifetime
October is National Chiropractic Health Month. As a member of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Northern Nevada Chiropractic encourages our patients to be conscious of their movement throughout the day and MOVE MORE! The campaign, “Move 4 Life” is designed to help patients improve and maintain their musculoskeletal systems and overall health. As part of the campaign, the doctors at Northern Nevada Chiropractic will provide facts about movement and exercise tips to stay active and prevent injury.
Movement is vitally important to overall health. Physical activity not only helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and even some cancers, it also strengthens our bones and muscles. As we age, the health of our bones, muscles and joints — also known as our musculoskeletal system — is especially important in reducing the frequency and severity of back pain as well as preventing falls and other injuries that can lead to disability and limit our ability to engage in daily activities. For these reasons, it’s essential to move now, to move later, to move for life, and to stay healthy, strong, active and engaged.
Back pain remains one of the most prevalent and disabling conditions worldwide. It is one of the most common reasons that patients visit their doctors, and one of the most common conditions for which opioid pain medications are prescribed. Since the overuse and abuse of prescription opioid painkillers in the United States remains a top public health concern, it’s essential for health care consumers and providers to understand that spinal manipulation and other conservative approaches can get you moving by treating musculoskeletal conditions such as low back pain safely and effectively.
Join us as we celebrate National Chiropractic Health’s #Move4Life this October and beyond! Check out our complete collection of At Home Exercise videos, and be sure to check back with our Facebook page throughout the month for more tips and facts on the power of movement.
