Research Suggests Controlled-Motion Exercises

Our Chiropractic goal is to improve your posture.  Your posture is controlled by your nervous system’s ability to strategically collects sensations from all the joints in your body.  Amazingly, in less than one second millions of nerve impulses travel from the brain to your muscles which redistributes your balance as you move and change directions.

Chiropractic treatments correct bad or faulty movement patterns within the spine.  Research study done on “The Effect of Tai Chi on Posturo-Respiratory synchronization in frail older adults” concluded:  “Tai Chi training reduced the impact of closing the eyes on the strength of posturo-respiratory synchronization when standing.  Tai Chi may therefore reduce the role of vision in the control of multi-system interaction”

Get active in movement-based activities like yoga or tai chi, which helps to train accuracy and better muscular control of your body.  Your muscles and joints provides vital information to your brain via proprioception.  This enhances and reduces errors between perception and reality.  Strong balance is a growing problem as one ages.  Do your best to prevent this from happening.  Strong balance, alignment, and muscles are key to moving well and stay healthy!
