What is chiropractic and how can it help?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" — that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care. Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession. 

Chiropractors work with and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Like all professional health care practitioners, chiropractors follow definite protocols to gain the information to provide you with the best care. They will take your history and conduct physical, orthopaedic and neurological examinations and may order or take X-rays.

What is chiropractic?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

We know that the nervous system controls the functions of every tissue, organ and system in the body. Chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily ale spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. 

When that relationship is compromised by a spinal bone interfering with your nervous system (a vertebral subluxation), your chiropractor will deliver a spinal adjustment (a specific, precise, corrective force to the offending spinal segment). 

This correction permits normal nerve transmission, enabling the body's innate recuperative power to begin the healing process. It is said that the body needs no help or interference in looking after itself.

Choosing a pillow for neck and shoulder pain

Choosing a pillow for neck and shoulder pain

Monday, March 9, 2020

Nowadays pillows are made from of a range of materials; foam, feather, cotton, latex; and come in different shapes and forms; standard, pre-contoured, adjustable and even water pillows. Consequently choosing the pillow that's best for neck and shoulder pain can be a bit confusing.

Regardless of the sleeping position, a pillow should support the neck in a comfortable neutral posture. If lying on your back the forward ‘C-shape’ curve of the neck should be supported. If lying on your side the spine should be straight, so the head is neither tilted upwards or down. Sleeping on your stomach is never recommended as this creates twisting in the neck.

A pre-contoured pillow needs to be the right size to mould to the shape of the head and neck. A standard pillow needs to be soft enough so the head will gently sink in and support a neutral posture.

Back sleepers will generally find they do better on smaller pillows, because the gap to fill in and maintain the forward C-shape curve is smaller than the ear to shoulder gap for side sleepers. Of course most people will sleep in both positions, so a compromise between the two may be required.

A newborn does not require a pillow. By the time a child is 1-2 years old a very thin pillow may be useful when lying on their side. A pillow is not usually required for back sleeping until after two years, and once again this should be quite thin.

If you are unsure about what pillow is best for neck and shoulder pain, ask your chiropractor for specific advice.
