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.

 Looking after your latissimus dorsi

Looking after your latissimus dorsi

Tuesday, April 18, 2023

The latissimus dorsi, or lats for short, is a muscle in the middle and lower portion of your back. It plays an important role in your body, so how can you look after it?

You use your lats muscle for all kinds of tasks, from chest expansion when breathing, to pushing yourself out of a comfy chair. Athletes rely on these muscles for range of arm related sports, and training that includes bench presses. If you play golf, baseball, tennis, have poor posture, or even just do an activity such as chopping wood, you may use this muscle more than most. 

With so much use, it’s not uncommon to feel pain in the area surrounding your lats. Normally, any pain and discomfort relate to sports, overuse, or poor technique. A tell-tale sign of an injury to the lats can be distinct pain in your back, shoulders, shoulder blades, lower arms, and the inside of your arms down to your fingers. Severe damage can also include arm tingling, breathing troubles, and back tendonitis. 

A wide range of people can find themselves with lats muscle pain; fortunately, there are ways to prevent or ease it, and strengthen the muscles to reduce the risk. A personal trainer or expert can ensure you’re using the correct form, while offering helpful advice for the future. 

Exercises that experts suggest might include the back bow and pelvic lift. The back bow requires you to lie face down and form a pose similar to Superman flying, while the public lift involves lying on your back and lifting your pelvis upward. You can also prevent pain by using proper form, not overusing the muscles, warming up and cooling down, staying hydrated and getting massages. 

Damaging your latissimus dorsi muscle is uncomfortable, but it’s entirely preventable and manageable with a bit of help from an expert. Consult your chiropractor for advice or information on the correct exercises to manage and treat the discomfort.
