A happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.

Merry Christmas from Dr Sarah and Tara.

Merry Christmas from Dr Sarah and Tara.

Thank you to everyone who came down to our Christmas party last week. You can see photos of the event on our Facebook page. As I mentioned at the party, Christmas can easily turn into a very stressful time with the amount of errands, shopping, cooking, and socialising you have to do. Please take time out to appreciate this time of year.

Our Detoxify and Re-energise with Yoga session might be exactly what you need after a busy Christmas. Please book through Tara this week.

If you’re keen on getting into running in the New Year, the information below will be of interest.

Earlier this year I shared information about how Chiropractic can help injuries sustained by golf players. Many consider golf to be a “gentle” game but regular players would insist otherwise.

This article follows a similar vein, this time discussing the reasons for seeing a chiropractor for injuries sustained from running. 

Why see a sports chiropractor for a running injury?

Although physical therapy is often the first line of defence in rehabbing a running injury, many athletes and runners have started to rely on sports medicine-trained chiropractors. While physical therapy can focus on strengthening and coordination, chiropractic care is designed to improve joint mobilization, making sure that all the joints in the body are moving correctly.

Sports chiropractic care has evolved to incorporate the best of both worlds of joint mobilization techniques and soft tissue repair, creating a new gold standard of best practices in treatment plans for patients.

Not only do all the joints in the body need to move correctly, but they also need to move in coordination with the soft tissue – a healthy body is one where all the factors are working well together.

Runners who decide to visit a sports chiropractor should expect a thorough evaluation of bio-mechanics by their practitioner.Once an evaluation is completed, chiropractors will take into account the needs of each specific patient to decide between a variety of techniques, each designed to help the body regenerate healthy cells.

You can read more about Sports Chiropractic Treatment for Running Injuries here.

If you’re a runner, what are the biggest injury concerns you have?

Wishing you and your families a great Christmas and happy and healthy 2014.

Regards,

Dr Sarah MacNeil

2014 Peru Mission Trip: Help Tara’s Fundraising efforts

Our fab practice assistant Tara.

Our fab practice assistant Tara.

Our fabulous CA, Tara is fundraising for her mission trip next year to Peru. So far she has raised an amazing $846 towards her trip. Over 9 days Tara will be working with a Chiropractic Humanitarian Group in Peru, helping share the gift of chiropractic with impoverished people, especially women and children. She will be assisting the Chiropractors with the trip and helping educate these communities about health.

Tara is hoping to get in one of the groups for November next year, so there is still time to get in and help her with her fundraising!!

Sometimes we forget about what goes on around the world, and the difficulties so many people are having everyday while we are here in Australia are living amazing lives, with food, water, shelter, jobs and education. It’s hard to imagine someone else in the world would have it different!! But they do…. Tara’s aim is to give a little bit back for everything that we get here and help educate these impoverished communities about health.

TaraBelow is the link to Tara’s fundraising page, please help her vision to bring awareness of health to these 3rd world countries. Any donation is a great help. So please be part of this journey to lend a helping hand to the people who need it.
