Shoulders are indispensable; we use them for all tasks great and small, before we even reach the gym. This article will highlight the importance of maintaining both shoulder stability and mobility: the stronger your shoulders are, the more you can do; the more mobile your shoulders are, the more you can do without incurring injury. We make shoulder mobility a priority for everyone we treat, because it makes life so much easier and more comfortable.
In the back of your head you know you need to be getting at least 2.5 hours of exercise a week.

In the end, few things matter besides the health and well-being of ourselves and our family. Choosing to lead a long, healthy life takes a lot of commitment and work and can still be derailed by the intangibility of injury and disease.

The body is a reflexive organism: it develops enough muscle to perform the tasks it is regularly called upon to perform. You are training every day to achieve feats of physical strength and activity that go beyond the normal biomechanics of human bodies; at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we specialize in supporting these endeavors. The ironic reality of strengthening and specializing the body is that these exertions cause injury: straining tissues to make them stronger and introducing your body to unfamiliar movements that ask more of the muscles. Chiropractic care is being sought after more and more for treatment before and after physical performance.
