what a lot of people dont realize is that bone is a living tissue. It has the ability to break down, heal, and grow. This is because of a delicate balance between several (functional) types of bone cells. The term “use it or lose it” is pretty spot on when talking about human anatomy. The body is always trying to be as efficient as possible. That phrase really should state….”use it, and use it correctly, or lose it.” Bone is subjected to something called Wolfe’s Law, which is the cause of many joint problems! This changes the physical anatomy of the joint, which causes the body to adapt/adjust to the new changes (ie. tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, etc, etc) Older people often develop arthritis and pain in joints because of “wear and tear,” which unfortunately is nearly unavoidable if you have lead an active life!

This has been a friendly lesson from your friendly chiropractic….......student.

:) (PS – i’ve actually had to cut back on computer time over the last couple years because i was developing carpal tunnel syndrome in my right wrist…. and i’m only 28…I need this hands for my future profession, so thought it’d be best to make the change now instead of later when its too late!!!)
