This month’s topic was “A Healthier You in 2017!” Knowing that most people see the new year as a time to implement change and begin new routines, we asked our friend, Dr. Danique Howell, to speak about chiropractic care. She explained, along with eating healthy and exercising, regular chiropractic adjustments can help your body feel its best!

Dr. Howell also spoke about posture’s effect on your overall health. We were shocked to learn research has found “sitting is the new smoking.1” She suggested for every hour you do of sitting, whether it be at your desk or at home, get up and walk around for about 5 minutes. She asked if we’ve ever heard the phrase, “A body in motion, tends to stay in motion.” “It’s true,” Dr. Howell explained, “a sedentary lifestyle can do more harm to our bodies than we think.”

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast prepared by The Egg and I in Bearden. Thanks to those who came!

Dr. Howell is a chiropractic physician at Apple Health and Wellness located here in Knoxville.
