Flexible Like a Fiddlehead


Young fern shoots are flexible and supple as compared to the old, fallen leaves and brittle tree branches that surround them in early spring.  The former is full of Life and potential, the later - devoid of it.  The same can be said for your spine and your health.

Flexibility and youth go hand in hand.  In 1921, Dr. Henry Winsor performed medical autopsies which clearly demonstrated a connection between rigid and worn spinal segments and the corresponding chronic organ disease that followed.  So telling were his findings that he concluded - it's not that you get rigid and stiff as you grow older... you actually turn old and sick as you lose normal joint motion and alignment.  "A man is as old as his spine." - H. Winsor, MD

It's a fact.  Loss of spinal mobility ages you prematurely, and it can start in your in your 40's, 30's or even younger unless you have a plan to counter act it.  It just so happens, regular Chiropractic adjustments can help you stay youthful, supple and flexible like a fiddle head vs. lifeless and old, like a broken tree branch.
