Your easy shortcut to better health

Better health might seem hard to come by. With our sedentary lifestyles, poor health habits have an impact on our waistlines, brain, heart and posture. In a 2018 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers at Liverpool John Moores University in England claim sitting for too long reduces blood flow to the brain.  Sitting has been identified as so damaging to our health that experts now say “Sitting is the new smoking.”

Now, here’s the shortcut to better health that you’ve been waiting for!

Fascial blading- how it can help reduce pain and improve function

Fascial blading is a form of gentle, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation. The blade itself acts as an extension of the practitioner’s hands and allows the clinician to gently identify and breakdown scar tissue adhesions and fascial restrictions.

Your words matter: How to explain your pain

If you’ve ever been asked to rate your pain on a 0-10 scale, you’ll know how hard that can be. It might change. It might be a 3/10 in the morning, but a 9/10 when you start moving. So when someone asks you to rate it out of 10, what do you do? Do you put it as a 3 or a 9? Or do you go somewhere in the middle and say a 6/10? Taking the middle road might seem like a good idea, and is often what happens. The problem is- that doesn’t explain to your chiropractor that sometimes it’s not so bad, and sometimes it’s a heck of a lot worse and completely stops you from doing anything with your day.
