"The skeletal and muscular system is like a pulley system. If you have a rusty wheel that doesn't turn well, you have to pull harder on the rope, and it becomes frayed. The system isn't as efficient as it should be. Chiropractic fixes the inefficiencies and restores normal strength and range of motion."
"Your muscular system is like a network as it is interconnected - neck, shoulder, back, hip and stomach muscles all work together for instance. Strengthening this network of muscles with weight lifting exercises will help your posture so that you find that you sit and stand straighter while still being comfortable. It can even improve stability and overall balance so that you are more agile. "
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
