When it comes to understanding and giving appropriate weight to various aspects and practices in healthcare and medicine, it is more than fair to say that there are some aspects and practices within these key health-focused industries that are given far more coverage and widespread scope of understanding, than others. While of course it is important that the aspects and practices in healthcare and medicine that receive the most attention to detail get that attention, it is of equal importance that the underappreciated or otherwise underestimated aspects and practices in healthcare and medicine receive just as much attention (as they rightfully should). Health is too important, and given that one only has one life and one body to live out that life in, it makes all the sense in the world that we should be paying the utmost attention to health and wellbeing in all aspects – even (and especially) if that means going out of our way to learn more about the aspects of healthcare and medicine that require more attention to be paid.
Consider chiropractic care, for instance. Kinetic health is so important, and yet this is one of the areas of overall health that is most often ignored or underestimated. The importance of kinetic health cannot be overstated, making this even more shocking. To put the sheer importance of this aspect of health into perspective, there are 639 muscles in the body. Of these 639 muscles, 400 of them are hidden well under the surface. These muscles are referred to as ‘critical muscles’ or ‘invisible muscles’. These muscles have one of the most important roles in the body: ensuring that every single bone is in perfect placement in your body, all day, every day. The critical muscles work their magic subconsciously, constantly working to ensure that your body is functioning at its best. These muscles work on a memory, being triggered by stillness or even sometimes by movement. The moment that you first move your body, the muscles work their magic all day until you are still again (and even then some).
When this is put into perspective, it really drives home the importance of paying attention to kinetic health and staying on top it by going through the necessary motions and processes when they are deemed necessary. For example, seeing a professional chiropractor is all about giving you the best chance to overcome discomfort and even pain through the introduction and ongoing implementation of chiropractic methods and models when your body is in need of them. Professional chiropractors are all about giving affected individuals the relief they need, when they need it. This is the entire goal of chiropractic care, and it is the underlying framework of putting the knowledge that professionals have gained over the years into ethical practice. At the end of the day, chiropractic care is all about putting the money where the mouth is and doing what it takes to get the body back to its peak condition in healthy and safe ways that do not negatively impact the affected individual.
Some of the most commonly treated areas of the body in chiropractic care include (but are not limited to) hips, hamstrings, the lower back, the neck, and upper traps. Given that individuals often spend a significant amount of time sitting down throughout the work week, it is not at all uncommon for health issues like back pains and the like to present themselves in the impacted individual. This is when it is most important to ensure that one takes the appropriate steps to take care of themselves, even when it might feel triggering to potentially must heighten the pain to ultimately make it better in the end. This is what chiropractic care is all about. Individuals suffering from aches and pains in their body should be placing more emphasis on chiropractic care and the positive impact that it can have on an individual.
The healthcare and medicine industries are among the most important industries in the world. After all, we only have one life each to live and one body to live that life in, so it is of the utmost importance that we pay adequate attention to all aspects of health and wellbeing. Unfortunately, history has proven that we have not always paid the utmost attention to all aspects of health and wellness, with some areas of overall health being overlooked or otherwise underestimated. Kinetic health is one of the most underestimated aspects of overall health, and the result has been that this is an aspect of life that has proven itself to be under-appreciated and underestimated all too often. All points considered, it is more than fair to say that chiropractic care ought to get more recognition and understanding than it typically has in the past. The time for change was yesteryear, but you know what they say…better late than never.
