October is National Chiropractic Health Month!
National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2013 with the theme of “Get Vertical!” Get Vertical focuses on the importance of joint health at all stages of life and what people can do to keep their joints functioning properly.
ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to get off their couches and office chairs, stand up and move! In other words, Get Vertical!
Joints are critical to all movement and allow us to carry out normal activities of daily living. Some 150 million to 200 million cases of back pain send people to the doctor every year—and many of those are related to joint injuries. The bones that make up the joint allow movement, but it is the muscles that pull the bones that produce the movement.
The movements that you perform on a daily basis are critical to long-term joint health, as are proper nutrition, a healthy exercise regimen, and a healthy lifestyle. Moving a joint through its full range of motion serves several important purposes. Joints are not supplied directly with blood as are other organs within the body, but instead are nourished with synovial fluid that is forced into the joint cartilage through pressure resulting from body movement. So the saying, “Use it or lose it” applies to joint function.
