Your spine is important to your daily health.
In addition to 24 bone joints that allow the body to bend and move, your spine is also home to your spinal cord which effectively connects all of the organs, muscles and other tissues to the brain. Without a healthy spine, not only might you have trouble moving, your nerve connections to the brain may also become impaired and that means unnecessary pain.
There are many things you can do to lead a healthier lifestyle and prevent injury to the spine. BC's chiropractors put together some helpful tips and advice to keep your spine in shape. Visit the link below and book an appointment with one of our Chiropractor this week!
