Your doctor says you have arthritis in your spine and you're concerned with how it got there. Was it from the physical stress of your job? The 15 years of league bowling? Or maybe the accident you had when you were a teenager? It's hard to tell.
When it comes to arthritis the real problem isn't what you DID, but what you HAVEN'T BEEN DOING. Joints wear down faster when they're 'stuck' and misaligned. That's why it's important to keep them lined up and moving with Chiropractic adjustments.
Blaming the activities in your life for your arthritis is like blaming the sidewalk for scuffing your shoes. Things naturally wear down when you use them over time, including your spine. Instead, focus more on prevention with regular maintenance care.
