What is the #1 reason people visit their family doctor?
The Common Cold
What is the #2 reason?
Lower Back Pain
We have not decided to create a new cold medication, but we have come up with a solution to eliminating the second reason you are visiting your doctor. Lower Back Pain is a major problem, 80% of adults report lower back pain at some point in their lives, and it accounts for the majority of occupational injuries, and activity limitations in the workplace.
What causes it?
In short, posture! Did you know that incorrect posture could make your head up to 20lbs heavier than it needs to be? In fact, for every inch your head/neck posture is overextended, 10 POUNDS of weight is added to your spine through your neck! That is a lot of unnecessary weight and pressure on your spine, increasing your lower back pain. This incorrect posture can pull your entire spine out of alignment, and affects your core and gastrointestinal system. Your spine is integral to the balance and health of your body. This is why the Smart Movement Spinal Health and Alignment Workshops are so important.
