Did you know that drinking too much soda or other carbonated beverages could interfere with calcium absorption - a problem that could eventually lead to osteoporosis? Or that slouching at a desk all day or tapping away at a computer keyboard can lead to painful strains in your wrists, shoulders, elbows and back?
These are just a few of the bad habits that can lead to musculoskeletal problems-conditions that have an enormous impact not only your health, but also on society as a whole. In the United States alone, musculoskeletal conditions cost society an estimated $254 billion every year and one out of every seven Americans reports a musculoskeletal impairment.
Doctors of chiropractic, in particular, have long emphasized the importance of spinal health, posture and other lifestyle factors in the body's ability to function optimally. Poor spinal health, for instance, can cause a negative chain reaction throughout the body. It can cause stress on joints, which, especially if the muscles are weak, can cause wear and permanent damage. The ACA and your local doctor of chiropractic offer the following advice to help improve and maintain your musculoskeletal health.
While the ACA encourages you to follow these tips for better musculoskeletal health, remember that good spinal health is but one component in a healthy lifestyle. Exercising, getting a good night's sleep, drinking plenty of water and eating a nutritious diet contribute not only to health but also to the ability to heal after an injury.

In September, I was rear-ended in a car accident. I have always been nervous about going to a Chiropractor, but this was my 3rd whiplash and I knew that Physical Therapy only did so much. I searched the web for Chiropractors in my area and found the Ahwatukee Life Center. What impressed me about their treatment of the whole body, not just my neck. With the careful explanation of my X-rays, I was able to see how my neck trauma was affecting various parts of my body. They also used the Cold Laser treatment to help with the dizziness that I suffered from after the accident. Thank you Dr Morley and staff, for calming my fears about Chiropractors. I feel SO much better!
