The story goes: If you put a frog into a pot of boiling water, it will leap out right away to escape the danger. But, if you put a frog in a kettle that is filled with cool water and gradually heat the kettle until it starts boiling, the frog will not become aware of the threat until it is too late.
I'm not sure if this is accurate, but the story bears remembering. The second frog accommodates stress and fails to take appropriate action because it happens on a subtle gradient.
We do the same. We accommodate physical, chemical, and emotional stresses until we can't, producing subluxations. As you know, most subluxations do not produce any obvious symptoms. How long we keep those subluxations will most likely determine how adversely our body's functions, health, and life are effected.
Getting checked regularly, will help keep our nerve system as clear as possible to do the work it needs to do to keep us functioning better and at our best in health and all areas of life.

Whether you move or not, your choice stimulates the cytoskeletons of all your cells in a way that signals “this behavior is what I do, so please adapt.”
Our cultural patterns of localized bone loss are what you would expect from the loading patterns we have in common. Skeletons are a sort of “living story” you are continuously writing.
