Everyone wants to be strong and healthy. Our musculoskeletal (MSK) system – our muscles, bones and joints – plays an important role in helping us get strong and stay strong 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 woods, remodeling a vintage piece of furniture or dancing until the sun comes up.
On the other hand, when a person is injured or feeling the effects of normal aging, the MSK system can 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 small 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 small 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 patients to avoid or reduce the need for riskier pain treatments such as prescription opioid pain medications.
