Our emotions and our physical body are linked. Some practitioners feel that our body ‘remembers’ emotions and events. This is sometimes referred to as ‘muscle memory’. This short video discusses the link between the two, and was stimulated by Andrew reading the book ‘Emotional Anatomy’.
Great article in the International Journal of Epidemiology in June of this year. The authors describe how small amounts of exercise appear to make a significant difference to bone density. You can read a summary of the original article here. Remember it’s only two minutes per day!
There was an interesting article published last month in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It was a research study into the effectiveness of spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) for acute low back pain. The outcome of the study was very positive. What was really great (from our point of view) was the editorial encouraging medical doctors to refer patients with back pain for manipulative treatment. It was encouraging to see such a cooperative attitude towards the chiropractic profession. Thanks to Dr Richard Deyo MD, MPH!
