Unbelievable! Low fitness level and a sedentary lifestyle was found to be a bigger risk factor for Cardiovascular Disease than smoking, diabetes and obesity combined!! Oh my…
Remember Cardiovascular Disease is the number one cause of death in Canadians.
Simple walking for 30 minutes – five days per week is recommended. If you can’t walk without pain or discomfort or feel like you are further injuring yourself and have decreased your activity then get a full gait and lower limb assessment to determine what is causing the problem and what needs to be corrected.
Our Chiropractors in Nanaimo BC and Certified Pedorthists (foot and orthotic specialists) on staff can determine the lower limb/gait dysfunction that needs to be corrected.
