A few months ago I pulled a muscle and by the time I made it to the chiropractor, I could barely support my self. By the time I left, I felt better and within a couple of days I had forgotten about the whole ordeal. Yesterday, while camping we were picking up heavy things, and I saw both my kids bending and picking up stuff without bending their knees. Several years ago I picked up a heavy box that way, and I was in continuous pain for the following two years. I wish I had known about chiropractors back then.
Posture in bussines is extremely important. We make our opinions of someone we just met during the first 7 seconds. Socially, it works the same. Whenever I am about to meet a new client or a new friend, I think of three things. Smile, stand up straight and talk with a clear voice.
So in honor of my friend Dr Michael Vanella the best chiropractor in Virginia Beach, I share some information he has shared with me.
