World Spine Day

The focus of World Spine Day in 2017 is on the importance of body awareness and activities that promote a healthy spine.

“Your Back in Action”

It was just a simple thing, until it wasn’t…

Whether it’s dressing, playing, or sitting, sometimes, daily tasks aren’t so easy. That’s a message that rings all to true for many of us and for those we love. This World Spine Day, we’re dedicated to recognizing those not-so-simple things, and letting you know that chiropractic care is here for you.

Pain changes everything. Chiropractic care changes pain.

Describing Pain

Help defining pain huron church chiropractic Windsor onOur goal at Huron Church Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre is to help our patients maintain their good health – proactively with regular care. However, we understand that pain happens; whether by injury, illness or a chronic condition.

Some people struggle to describe their pain to doctors and others, which can make treatment and understanding the pain more challenging. Pain is also subjective; the way people hurt varies greatly from person to person.

Here are some tips to help you define your pain.

Onset – When did the pain start? Do you believe it was from an injury or activity?
Location – Where does it hurt? Do you feel associated symptoms elsewhere in your body? (Example: right shoulder pain and occasional numbness in the right hand.)
Type – What adjectives would you use to describe the pain? (Examples: sharp, achy, burning, throbbing.)
Intervals – Do you hurt all the time, or at certain times of the day or when performing any particular activities?
Management – How have you been managing the pain? When do you feel relief from the pain? Have you sought out other treatment options or medications?

To better understand the pain, some practitioners may request that the patient document their pain in a journal. The journaling process can help better define the pain quality, duration, related symptoms and onset by activity.

Using a scale of pain, while subjective, can also be helpful in describing the intensity of pain and how it affects the person’s life. Here is a general outline:

0 – Pain-free
1 – Very mild, hardly perceptible
2 – Minor pain, noticeable but more irritating than painful
3 – Noticeable pain, but it doesn’t affect daily activities
4 – Moderate pain, but hours can pass without thinking about it
5 – Moderate but significant pain which is noticed every few minutes and is starting to impact daily activities
6 – Significant pain which disrupts concentration and physical activities
7 – Severe pain affects the quality of life and interferes with normal sleep patterns
8 – Intense pain which limits nearly all physical activities and cognition is impaired
9 – Excruciating pain whereby the person cannot function physically or mentally
10 – Pain beyond description, the sufferer may be bedridden and delirious

Pain is a signal that something is not right in your body, and it should never be ignored. Seek out professional medical help at the onset to help prevent future problems and potentially increasing severity.

How Children Benefit from Chiropractic Care

Kids children chiropractor Windsor Ontario Huron Church ChiropracticOur goal as parents is to raise happy, healthy and active children. We’d like to offer you 6 reasons why regular chiropractic care is important for children of all ages.

Children are hard on their bodies

Whether your child is involved in sports or prefers to spend their time playing on mobile devices; their young bodies can be easily misaligned.

Growth

Your child’s body is in a constant state of change, and regular chiropractic care helps restore and maintain their body for optimum functioning, relieving tension and stress as their body changes.

Good habits start early

Good posture starts in childhood and last lasting benefits. Chiropractors can also encourage proper head positioning while on electronic devices.

Set a good example

When you utilize regular chiropractic care for yourself you and your children, you demonstrate the importance of good health: setting a life-long example of the importance of good self-care.

In sickness and in health

Removing interference from the nervous system helps your child’s body operate in its natural healthy state.

Better sleep and related benefits    

Our nerves affect every aspect of our body, and when there is interference it can result in sleep, concentration and even behavioural issues.

Overall good health

Our spine houses our nerves, and our nervous controls our whole body. Chiropractic care helps support nervous system functioning; which means your child’s entire body will benefit.

Everyone with a spine benefits from chiropractic care. Begin your child’s healthy journey today and call us to schedule your visit: 519-258-8544

Why is Good Posture So Important?

Why is Good Posture Important - Windsor Ontario ChiropractorsGood posture means good health. Are you surprised? Remember that our spines are central to our structure. The spine is the ‘relay station’ of our central and peripheral nervous systems.

 

Good posture distributes the force of gravity through our body, ensuring that no structure is overstressed. Good posture helps our bodies be more resistant to the day to day stressors we experience in life.

Ideal postural alignment balances the distribution of body weight, which enables our muscles and ligaments to perform as designed. Proper posture also allows for improved circulation, digestion, nervous system and organ functioning.

Many conditions occur as a result of our bodies being held in an unnatural position. Problems with back pain, neck and chronic muscle strain can all be reduced by proper posture.

Good posture is essential to good health. When the spine is properly aligned our bodies function as it is meant to.
