The brain uses a quarter of the body's entire energy supply, yet only accounts for about two percent of the body's mass. So how does this unique organ receive and, perhaps more importantly, rid itself of vital nutrients? New research suggests it has to do with sleep.

Elliott Hulse shows everyone how to balance your neck musculature to decrease neck pain and forward head carriage.
Do you work at a desk all day, play video games, text on a cell phone or drive long hours? Do you notice your head sitting unnaturally forward compared to your shoulders? You might experience upper back pain and maybe even a bump at the base of your neck. This all could be due to a loss of cervical curve and an imbalance in the musculature of the neck. Treating the curvature in the neck is simple: contact your local chiropractor. Strengthening the muscles in the neck is also easy: see the video below to find out how.
Everyone can benefit from a better night's rest.
This is a great summary of a study done by Indiana University.
Walking at work has been touted as a great way to normalize blood flow, decrease low back pain and increase morale in the workplace. This video sums everything up nicely from a walking study done by Indiana University. An increase in muscle activity thus creating better blood flow was shown to normalize arterial function in the body. If workers are allowed to sit for periods, blood tends to pool in the legs since muscles are not effectively helping circulation go back to the heart as talked about in this video from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This amazing compilation shows what training and dedication allow people to do.
Even though everything looks perfect in the video, there were many outtakes and injuries sustained while filming. Martyn Ashton actually sustained a severe spinal injury from a fall during one of his stunts. Take care of your spine and it will take care of you.
