Joint pain is one of the first and most noticeable health problems caused by being overweight

Your joints have it tough. Even at your target weight, they are still under near constant pressure to facilitate movement without giving in or giving out. But when you surpass your target weight, the burden can become unbearable. Take your spinal joints for example: those in the lumbar are responsible for bearing and stabilizing the weight of your upper body while still allowing for a modicum of movement. Piling more and more weight on top of these joints means reduces their capacity to provide this function, while also causing them to degrade. 

Let's start appreciating and caring for our joints.

In order to make life easier for our joints, we need to focus on maintaining a healthy target weight. Everything you do, from the first steps you take in the morning to your activities before bed make a difference in maintaining a healthy weight. Regular chiropractic care ensures your spine maintains alignment and does not put undue pressure on spinal nerves. From here, we focus on low-impact exercises and good nutrition to strengthen the joint capsules and prevent damage.
