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.

 Where’s your wallet?

Where’s your wallet?

Monday, February 6, 2023

Calling all blokes!! Quick! Where’s your wallet? For a number of you, the answer may be “my back pocket”. While it is great to have a regular place to keep such a valuable item, your back pocket is not a good choice. Given that we all spend a lot of time sitting down, unless you remove it, you will end up spending a good part of your day sitting on your wallet. 

This may initially seem like no big deal, but it can lead to a serious issue. As your wallet is only on one side, it immediately creates an imbalance in your pelvis while sitting. The amount of imbalance obviously depends on how thick it is but even a thin wallet with just a couple of credit cards can create enough of a tilt in your pelvis to create a problem. 

As you sit on your wallet, one of your seat bones will be higher than the other. This means that side of your pelvis, and in fact that side of your entire body, is being pushed upward anyway from the opposite side. Overtime, this imbalance will create a huge amount of distortion in your pelvis and lead to stress and postural alterations throughout your spine. 

If you are experiencing discomfort in your back, then make sure your back pocket is not the place that you store your wallet. And if you do carry your wallet here, make the change now before you create further imbalance in your body. It seems like such a little thing but numerous people around the globe have unintentionally put additional pressure on their spines simply through this practice. Correcting this habit can help protect your spine and body from unnecessary stress which in turn helps you stay healthy. 

So, take note over the next few days where you keep your wallet and start looking at alternatives. Perhaps the man-bag is not just a fashion item after all.
