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.
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.
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.
Dr Sarah MacNeil
