|This Halloween Take Care Of Your Skeleton
Happy Halloween! This year, while ghosts and goblins lurk outside, look within — to your own skeleton. Bone health is an essential, yet often ignored, component of a winning wellness plan. Taking care of your bones can scare off a host of frightening conditions such as osteoporosis, back pain, fractures and arthritis.
The foundation of the chiropractic approach to bone health is the correction of dysfunctional areas in the spine. These areas, called vertebral subluxation, arise when movement is restricted or bones (vertebrae) are misaligned.
Vertebral subluxations are linked with a myriad of conditions including back pain, neck pain, headache and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations with gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments. A wealth of scientific studies show that chiropractic adjustments safely and effectively correct spinal dysfunction — and the disorders associated with it.
This Halloween, don’t get spooked by thoughts of future bone disease. Turn to your doctor of chiropractic for sound advice on how to prevent skeletal disorders. It’s just the treat that will keep the trick knees, trick backs and other trick skeletal flaws awayDr. Barbara Smith
