The human body is an amazingly complex system of bones, joints, muscles, and nerves, designed to work together to accomplish one thing: motion. Remember that motion is life. Everything about the human body is designed with motion in mind: nerve fibers stimulate the muscles to contract, muscles contract to move the bones, bones move around joints, and the nerve system controls it all.

As a matter of fact, research has shown that motion is so critical to our body's health that a lack of motion has a detrimental affect on everything from digestion to our emotional state, immune function, our ability to concentrate, how well we sleep and even to how long we live. If your lifestyle does not include enough motion, your body cannot function efficiently. First, you will not be as physically healthy and will suffer from a wide variety of physical ailments, ranging from headaches to high blood pressure. Second, you will not be as productive in your life because of reduced energy levels and the lack of ability to mentally focus. Third, because you have less energy, your activity level will tend to drop off even further over time, creating a downward spiral of reduced energy and less activity until you get to a point where even the demands of a sedentary job leave you physically exhausted at the end of the day.

Read on to find out more how strength, posture, movement, and balance all play into living a life full of motion.   

  • Posture

    The ancient Japanese art form of growing Bonsai trees is fascinating. Bonsai trees are essentially normal shrubs that have been consistently stressed in a particular way for a long time to create a posture which would never be found in nature. Depending on how the tree is stressed while it grows, it

  • Movement

    Imagine waking up one morning with a frozen shoulder where you couldn't move your upper arm more than a few inches in any direction. How much would that impact your ability to do your job? How much would that affect your ability to drive your car or even to dress yourself? How much would that affect

  • Balance

    Balance and coordination exist when the body is used for what it is designed for. Exercises such as walking, swimming, yoga, Pilates, bicycling, martial arts, and bodybuilding all help to improve muscle coordination. Activities such as working at a desk, reading, and watching television do the opposite

  • Strength

    Strong muscles keep your body upright and allow you to move. Good muscle strength and balance are critical to maintain proper posture and minimize muscle tension. Your muscles function much like the wires that hold up a tall radio or television antenna. If the wires are equally strong on all sides, the

Here’s what some of my patients have to say :

  • "I began chiropractic care with Dr. Sue a year ago because of an auto accident. After a few chiropractic adjustments, education, and proper exercise, I have noticed a huge difference in my attitude and how I feel. I have adopted chiropractic care into my wellness program."
    Maya
  • "I met Dr. Sue at a point in time when my 61-year old body needed immediate healthcare if I were to keep up with my daily 3 mile walk, 3 days of half-hour aerobics, and 3 dance clubs (Western, Ballroom, and Line). Her expertise at finding my many problems with the neck, shoulders, arms, and legs – and then physically nurturing these areas to ease my discomfort is phenomenal! God bless Dr. Sue for all the good she does for patients like me."
    Anne
  • "I have been going to LeBlanc Chiropractic for five years. Throughout my life I have had trouble with pain in my hip from early years of youth football. Since my adjustments with Dr. Sue, I have had no pain in my hip. Also, my treatments have increased my benchpress and my ability to jog. I am pleased to say I have been well taken care of."
    Emile
  • "Dr. Sue has helped me so much over the past year. Her Wellness Program is great, allowing me routine adjustments which keep me feeling strong and healthy. She is a super person and I look forward to seeing her each visit."

  • Health Statistics and You

    We are awash in numbers, thanks in large part to the proliferation of personal mobile devices and the wrong-headed use of so-called big data.1 But applying statistical tools to the same set of data can support competing theories and lead to contradictory results.

  • Meditation and Me

    For many of us, the practice of meditation seems like a totally foreign notion. In an era of full-time, morning-to-night distractions and distractibility, the concept of quietly sitting with nothing else to do seems impossibly ridiculous. Why would anyone do that, we ask, as we text message with one ...

    Many people - adults and children - are familiar with the marvelous animated feature "The Lion King".

  • The Light Within

    What animates us? In other words, what is it that causes us to be living matter? For example, what distinguishes a living orchid from a tissue-paper-and-paint model of an orchid? Or what distinguishes a hawk from an airplane? What is it that causes the material that is us to hold together and function ...
