Get Moving with Kuty Chiropractic
A new study shows that if a 16 year-old male has a high BMI, that is weight for height, then he has an up to 4.5 times higher chance of having arthritis, degenerative disc disease, in his back at only 21 years old! Smoking caused similar degeneration to the back. 558 total 21 year-olds of various weight were given an MRI showing that 21% had mild degeneration, 17% moderate degeneration, and 17% severe disc degeneration. This is a very high number and to me indicates that our youth simply are not moving enough. All people need to get at least 4 hours of physical activity daily. Go grocery shopping, get adjusted here at Kuty Chiropractic, park far and walk, take a lunch break and walk at the park, do jumping jacks and run in place. Whatever you do, MOVE! Chiropractic care is very helpful for arthritis disc degeneration at all ages, but prevention is the best health care. Encourage your whole family from toddler to seniors to move everyday to enjoy your best health. (source: BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2013;14(87))
