Why Are Children Weaker Now Than At Any Time In History?

The Observer on Sunday reported that modern life is creating a generation of weaklings.  According to their research, children are becoming weaker, less muscular and unable to do physical tasks that previous generations found simple.

Our philosophy at Chiropractic Life is to Eat Well, Move Well and Think Well and keep the nervous system free of interference through regular spinal maintenance, which gives you and your children the best possible chance of obtaining true health.

Research published in the child health journal Acta Paediatrica highlights health problems affecting children,  caused by the new digital age which has lured our children away from outdoor pursuits and activities that are so vital to building bone and muscle strength and endurance and while not doing that, actively sitting at a computer, play station or  mobile device with head down and forward and often with the spine slumped compromising the flow of vital energy.  A childs body is still developing and many hours spent in the wrong position hails health problems for the future.  As the twig is bent, so grows the tree!

Previous research has all ready shown that children are becoming more unfit, less active and more sendentary, and in many cases heavier.  Added to the decline in physical fitness and strength building activities of children, is the added burden of the increase and consumption of fast foods.   Combine this with what children are actually watching and doing with their minds, it is no surprise we have unhealthy, unhappy children, teens and now adults! – eat well, move well, think well!

At Chiropractic Life our desire is to help you and your family not just survive but thrive, and a healthy nervous system is vitally important to achieving this – spinal fitness is incorporated in “moving well” – since so much of modern day living involves around sitting (which places up to 60% more stress on the spine).

Because of modern day living, Chiropractic care should not be viewed just as an option but a vital part of your health care plan.

Consult a Chiropractic Life Chiropractor to achieve the health you deserve and desire.

Cook for your kids. By cooking your own food, you can leave processed foods behind, creating more healthful, less expensive and better-tasting food that requires less energy, water and land per calorie and reduces our carbon footprint. Cooking your own food is good for you and the planet!
