Dr. Robert Hayden, DC, PhD, a Chiropractor from Griffin, Georgia, who is also a delegate of the American Chiropractic Association joins eHealth Radio and the Chiropractic & Health News Channels. ACA represents members of the chiropractic profession nationwide and advocates for issues that are important to chiropractors and their patients.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Robert Hayden discuss the following:
- We hear a lot about how physical activity can benefit our cardiovascular system, help us lose weight and get fit. But how does movement help our bones, muscles and joints—also known as the musculoskeletal system?
- Why does moving get harder as we age? Can we prevent or slow down the aging process on our bones, muscles and joints?
- In your experience, what are the top reasons why people aren’t moving more?
- For years we were told to restrict physical activity when we had back pain. Why was that bad advice? How does movement help people heal?
- How can people get moving? What are some of the best activities for those who may be largely inactive right now?
