Very sad news, for every hour that you sit down, your life expectancy may decrease by 2 hours. For comparison, every cigarette smoked reduces life expectancy by 11 minutes. The body was designed for motion and even standing does not optimize your body’s function physiology. It is extremely important to be moving. The healthiest way to sit may be the most uncomfortable, as sitting cross legged will improve the range of motion in your hip joints. It is suggested that those who work from a desk all day or couch potatoes get up every 30 minutes and move around. Take a short walk around your office or a trip around the house. If able, a minute or two of calisthenics like jumping jacks, free squats or sit-ups would be very beneficial and not only protect you from a declining life expectancy, but also loss weight by burning calories that would not be used due to the sitting.

Chiropractic and headaches. The vast majority of headaches are caused by neck muscle tension. This condition is called cervicogenic headaches. Tight muscles in the neck from stress, poor sleeping habits, posture or neck strain cause the muscles to tighten and pull on the spinal bones in the neck. This pulling or contracture, shifts the alignment of the cervical neck bones and creates an instability which then can cause nerve irritation, muscle imbalance and restriction of motion. All three of these effects can lead to headaches. Your chiropractor will analyze the neck area using palpation, reflexes and muscle testing to determine the area of the spine that is causing the problem. A very gentle spinal adjustment with the chiropractor’s hands or using hi-tech low force tapping instruments will correct the alignment, relax the muscles, reduce the nerve irritation and improve the headache condition.
