Spring Into Movement 2018
Today is the first day of Spring 2018! What a great day to start off your week and season by "moving" in the right direction. Here in Fort Worth, our city has become a very educated and health conscious group. We are starting to realize what we put into our bodies plays a big role in our health and we are seeing higher numbers of people getting active.
As a community we are learning that movement is life. Movement stimulates blood flow and is a great metabolism booster. Several studies have proven movement and regular exercise greatly benefit our health! In general, exercise:
- Builds Aerobic Endurance
- Improves Muscle Strength
- Natural Immune Booster
- Decreases Stress Hormones
- Lose Healthy Amounts of Weight
- Decreased Pain Intensity
Some of the added benefits of regular movement and exercise are:
- Reduces Risk of Stroke up to 27%
- Colon Cancer up to 25%
- Breast Cancer up to 21%
- Type 2 Diabetes up to 30%
- Reduce Hypertension by up to 50%
- and the list goes on....
Did you know that during the first 15 minutes of your exercise routine, your body burns excess sugars and carbs? After reaching the 30 minute mark your body starts burning your stored body fat. So whether you exercise by walking for 15 minutes or get in a long hard workout, you are helping your body burn excess calories and feeding your brain with movement! Remember, movement is life... “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” Get active and feed into your health.
Our dedication to you is to get you moving better!
Yours in health,
Dr. Tanner Rodriguez
