Happy October! Now that fall is here and with winter around the corner, it will become more and more tempting to laze around the house and become a hibernating couch potato.
Don't do it! Don't become sedentary! Find ways to remain active during the colder winter months, even if it's just as simple as exercising in the comfort of your own house.
Activity is vital for joint health and spinal stability. Sitting accelerates joint degeneration, spinal instability, and is a major cause of low back pain and neck pain.

This celebration of chiropractic care could not come at a better time: today's Daily Mail from London highlights a trend that chiropractors have been speaking out about for some time, namely, the erosion of proper posture from phone and tablet use. This loss of posture can cause chronic neck and back issues for a lifetime. This condition has been called "text neck" and "iPosture" and "upper crossed syndrome". It can be solved by chiropractic care, simple home exercises, posture education and... getting vertical!
