Many of us have strenuous  jobs.  Dentistry is one of them.  For the last 30 years, I have found considerable benefit from treatment by chiropractors.

They believe there are five health-related components of physical fitness:
  • muscular strength
  • muscular endurance
  • cardiorespiratory endurance
  • body composition
  • flexibility

Flexibility is the ability to move your joints and muscles through a normal range of motion, and a regular flexibility and stretching program has the following benefits:
  • increased circulation to muscles, nourishing them, eliminating waste products and decreasing recovery time after injury
  • improved posture with loose muscles and less discomfort
  • better coordination due to improved range of motion to maximize balance and mobility
  • stress relief, because loose muscles are less likely to spasm during periods of tension

Several health-related web sites have simple stretching programs available.  Finding a routine that best fits your lifestyle can make you feel better and younger!
