Nutrition is emphasized largely in today’s society as the way to be healthy.
The fad diets are all the rave.
However, no one ever thinks about posture and movement.
I have been getting a multitude of people asking me what they need daily.
Who do they need to see because they don’t want to be seeing a doctor. It is too expensive.
I quite agree and that goes into a whole different story.
But the answer is simple.
Seek a physical therapist or chiropractor if you do have cash for it.
If not and you need a bare minimum go for a personal trainer or massage therapist.
The breakdown of a body from physical exertion is a lot.
I mean you are constantly carrying around a 10 pound head on this little tiny stick called a spine.
That is tough. Not to mention the other amounts of weight you are luging around.
Physical therapists and their sub-counterpart personal trainers are great for information of general nutrition and how to move properly to prevent injury day to day.
On the other hand chiropractors and massage therapists (whom are not licensed to do any spinal manipulation) are great for static postural alignment which in its own way maintains the body.
Unfortunately, chiropractors are seen as unscientific when they go through very similar extensive training as medical students. And personal trainers along with massage therapists are quite inadequate in terms of level of education. Most of them high school graduates with a half a year to a year of education.
It’s a give and take situation.
However they are your best options to prevent that horrendous bill at the end of the day when you finally need to go to the hospital.
So, go seek help and if you are going for a personal trainer or massage therapist make sure a physician is working alongside them. It has happened all too often where physicians are upset because patients go see the average personal trainer or massage therapist that ends up hurting the patient more than helping.
