We are open!

We are delighted to announce the eagerly awaited ‘health hub’ is now open!

Philippa Oakley is welcoming her first chiropractic patients from Monday 9th January. From the following week, Acorn Health will be welcoming additional practitioners including massage therapy, counselling, acupuncture, and much more!

Below is a montage of the speedy renovation project that was conducted between Christmas and New Year 2016: including our new signage, new chiropractic bench fondly renamed Kermit for his bright green colour, painting, removing cupboards and replacing floors. Thank you to everybody whom has helped and been a part of the transition from award-winning chiropractic clinic to award-winning multidisciplinary clinic.

Take a tour through the transformation of 2 Palmer’s Road:

Event: First aid course for baby & child

As part of our community initiative, we organised a British Red Cross Paediatric First Aid Course held on 5th October 2015 at the Emsworth Community Centre.

In 2012, over 3,000 babies in the UK died before their first birthday and over 2,000 children died between the ages of 1-19. The most common cause of death was injury. Recent estimates suggest that 21% of child deaths involved ‘modifiable factors’- in other words, something could possibly hav
e been done to prevent the death.

We were trained by Maggie from the British Red Cross, and covered lots of personal learning objectives which included everything from “What do I do if my child has swallowed something dangerous?” to “How do I handle a nosebleed?!”

Other key learning topics included:

First aid red cross CPR health emergency accident injury child children baby babies education Hampshire Emsworth osteopathy physiotherapy healthcare chiropractic– Dealing with an emergency
– Choking baby and child
– Unconscious breathing baby and child
– Unconscious not breathing baby and child (CPR)
– Fever and febrile seizures
– Head injury
– Burns
– Severe allergic reactio
– Bleeding heavily
– Asthma attack
– Meningitis
– Broken bones, strains and sprains

As you can see from the photos, we learnt how to perform CPR on babies and young children, how to tie a sling, and basic first aid techniques such as putting someone into the recovery position. The hands-on learning is invaluable as it gives you the confidence to perform the techniques- would you know how to do this in an emergency?
