Conshohocken retail outlet GOT YOUR BACK hosts December open house

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA–(Marketwire – Nov. 20, 2009) – GOT YOUR BACK will be hosting an open house at its retail location at 521 East Hector St. in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania on Dec. 12 from 1 to 4 p.m. Guests will include health and wellness professionals, chiropractors, massage therapists and those interested in alternative fitness and wellness throughout the tri-state area. Visitors will enjoy food, beverages, a free chair massage and free on-site diagnosis of the spine. This event is also open to the public and special discounts will be offered throughout the store exclusively for attendees of this event.

GOT YOUR BACK is a health and wellness store and is proud to announce the newest addition to its back- and spine-care product line, The Spinalis Chair, made exclusively in Slovania by Tomaz Ham. Because millions of people spend so much of their day sitting, Ham designed a chair that allows for “active sitting.” The Spinalis Chair has a moveable seat designed specifically to keep the spinal column constantly in a correct position. At the same time, the back and abdominal muscles are being strengthened, which is the basis for a healthy back.

About 240 million Americans either have suffered or will suffer from some type of back pain or spinal injury. There are a number of reasons why, including: 

Trauma. Back pain may be caused by any of the following: poor posture, poor sleeping habits, slips and falls, vehicular accidents, sports impacts, strenuous exercise, work injuries or childhood falls. These injuries, not always immediately detected, often produce a misalignment of the bones, which place physical pressure and stress on the nerves.

Toxicity. Toxins in the food or environment can produce serious adverse effects in every cell, organ, gland and body system. When they interfere with the functioning of the nervous system, they are called toxic subluxations.

Emotional stress. Emotional stress of day-to-day life is often cumulative and creates an increasing risk factor for disease. Your responses to day-to-day stress and to traumatic life events are often programmed into your nervous system as conditioned reflexes. When they interfere with the normal functioning of the nervous system, back pain or disease may be a result.

Sedentary lifestyle. Many of us are too busy to exercise, spend too much time sitting at the computer, driving in our cars or watching television in positions that lead to further back pain and distress.

Here’s the good news: There is an increasing awareness of spinal health and how to achieve it naturally without spending thousands of dollars.
