In this blog, I will try to explain the importance of body alignment according to the profession of Naprapathy.
Imbalance is not a good state anywhere in the body. In an imbalanced state, kidneys cannot work properly or a heart condition may result from too much plaque. Each of these ailments is related to something out of balance, probably related to something you are getting too much or too little of in your diet.
As a naprapath, my main concern is that your movement apparatus — muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and all other connective tissue — is working in best possible way. Imbalance in your movement may develop over time or be the result of trauma. Regardless of the cause, imbalance in the movement apparatus typically causes pain.
Lower-back pain, for example, is often related to imbalance in leg muscles and affects your pelvis position, producing discomfort or pain. This condition may take some time to develop. In contrast, a trauma as simple as tripping on a sidewalk or stepping into a hole can throw off the balance in the sacroiliac area of you lower back. The sudden event pushes the joint off balance, and the result is lower-back pain.
As a naprapath, I treat the body as a whole. The movement apparatus is all connected and also depends on good nutrition. Imbalance can occur there, too. Muscle spasms, for example, are often caused by poor hydration or a lack of calcium, potassium, and magnesium. The latter is the hardest to get through normal eating and nutrition.
As you can see, while I treat the movement apparatus, I also pay a lot of attention to nutrition. A healthy, balanced diet will give you a great start to a balanced movement apparatus. And just as you may need some supplements to fill your nutritional gaps, you may need my help as a naprapath to help achieve your proper physical balance.
