No Move, No Groove, Your Health is Out of Tune
In the words of Led Zeppelin: “Hey, hey mama said the way you move Gon' make you sweat, gon' make you groove”
Let’s break that down. If you can’t move, it will be difficult to break a sweat. That holds true for sports, working out, or working hard at a job. No move = no sweat.
Now groove… The top definition in Urban Dictionary is “an adjective describing a rhythmic quality of music or a verb meaning to smoothly interact.” This reminds me of an analogy used in my profession that says, “a healthy spine is like a well-tuned orchestra, and it takes only one out of line to put everything out of tune.”
When I examine the spine and the patient tells me they have lower back pain, I also look at the neck and the mid back because I’m concerned about the entire structure of the spine from top to bottom, not just one area of pain.
So, the next time you find yourself unable to sweat because you are unable to move as you should or just think you can’t get back into the groove of life because of aches and pains, or you just happen to hear a Led Zeppelin tune that reminds you of this blog, call us at Heib Chiropractic Clinic. We have the FEEL-FORM-FUNCTION formula where the way you FEEL = the balance of your FORM + the degree of your FUNCTION.
