Trivia About the Human Body

You all know how I love to read. Besides reading articles on the latest health discoveries, I enjoy trivia about the human body.

Here are some of my recent favorites:

Like our skin, the human body’s bones are also constantly worn down and re-made, to the point where every 7 years we essentially have a new bone.

The human skeletal system has six major functions including the production of blood cells, for support, for movement, for protection, for storage of ions and endocrine regulation.

Human bones grow continually from birth till our mid 20’s. Our skeleton’s bone mass is at its maximum density around the age of 30.

If broken our bones will re-grow and repair themselves. Often doctors will place a cast on splint to make sure these bones repair straight and true.

The area of our body with the most bones is the hand, fingers, and wrist where there are 54 bones.

It never ceases to amaze me how the body functions, the myriad ways it works behind the scenes to keep us upright. As a chiropractor, I am grateful to help you improve your health. And I am blessed to have you as my patient.

Not only that, I am blessed to live in this beautiful location, as are we all.

Smile and be well,

The brain uses over a quarter of the oxygen used by the human body.

Just a Touch…  It only takes one touch, one thought or a desire to feel better. It’s within YOU.
