National Chiropractic Health Month 2019
Strength. Stability. Success.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) health helps people live full and active lives.
Everyone wants to be strong and healthy. Our musculoskeletal (MSK) system – comprised of our muscles, bones and joints – plays an important role in helping us get and stay stronger at all stages of life. ... It’s what makes it possible for us to stand. It’s what enables us to move. It’s what powers us to do the things that matter most, whether that’s taking care of our children, hiking in the Rockies, remodeling a vintage piece of furniture or dancing until the sun comes up.
When injured, or just through normal aging, the MSK system can also be a source of debilitating pain. Low back pain, one of the most common MSK complaints, is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Taking steps to improve MSK health is a smart way to live healthier and actively now and into the future.
During National Chiropractic Health Month 2019, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and its members are focusing on how MSK health leads to strength, stability and ultimately the success of a life lived more fully and actively. The campaign will provide information on steps to take toward muscle and joint health, low back pain prevention, better posture, and improved balance. Chiropractors provide care that helps people improve MSK health and relieve low back pain naturally, while also helping them to avoid or reduce the need for riskier pain treatments such as prescription opioid pain medications.
