I had a patient tell me the other day that her back problems ran in her family and that that meant there was nothing she could really do. (Except, maybe chiropractic Anna Texas?)
After this statement I realized this was an article that I HAD to write.
It is important to know the difference between & “RUNS IN MY FAMILY”.
For instance. Blonde hair can be hereditary. Height can be hereditary. Baldness can be hereditary. These are things that are genetic.
Now when you say something “runs in your family” that is simply saying something is familial. For instance your accent can “run in your family”. Meaning if your parents have a southern drawl then you may as well. You listen to them pronounce words and you mimic it.
It’s NOT in your genes. It’s learned.
Obesity can “run in your family” because you watched your parents eat high sugar diets and cook a particular way so now you do the same. Again… NOT genetic.
Finally, your back problems are probably NOT genetic. Of all spinal problems less than 5% have a genetic component. If health problems “RUN IN YOUR FAMILY” it’s time to BREAK THE STREAK!
Get yourself healthy and start to make some GOOD habits that RUN IN YOUR FAMILY!
