It’s world Nutrition and Hydration Week! To celebrate, we are holding a one-off event for a limited number of guests.

Dr Philippa Oakley (Doctor of Chiropractic) has a specialist interest in chronic pain management, and will be leading a workshop on Saturday 17th March from 10-11.30am at our clinic in Emsworth. The focus of the workshop will be to discuss foods that influence pain, and how you can use your diet to manage chronic pain and inflammation. You will also benefit from a group health coaching session with Rhiannon Oakley, qualified Personal Performance Health Coach who will help you plan your next steps to a healthier lifestyle. The workshop is ideal for people who are working towards their ideal weight, managing chronic pain conditions or IBS symptoms.

Throughout the week,we will be providing advice on nutrition and hydration across social media and we’re excited to partner with Emsworth Cookery School who are producing exclusive healthy homemade recipes for you to cook at home. Don’t forget to follow our Facebook Acorn Health to receive updates.

We’re also excited to announce Acorn Health’s Big Beach Clean Competition, running alongside our Nutrition and Hydration week activities in support of The Final Straw Emsworth.

Are you feeling sleepy?

Want to know a secret? There is no other activity that delivers so many benefits with little effort then sleep. Restful sleep is one of the five pillars of health and getting a good night’s sleep should be at the top of your to-do list this month. Everyone knows there’s nothing like a good night’s sleep for feeling refreshed and alert in the morning. Let’s take on 2017!

Emma’s sleep workshop is on Saturday 28th from 10-12pm at Acorn Health. Tickets must be booked in advance and are £25.00 cash on the day of the event. Please call 01243 379693 to book. We are a small group tackling the common problem so many of us have: how to get a really good night’s sleep.

Prevention is better than cure

As the old proverb said, ‘prevention is better than cure’.  So what’s the simplest thing can we do every day to prevent musculoskeletal pain?

With every patient we find the root cause or underlying issue of the problem and treat it accordingly to patient preference and clinical evidence and research. The most common problem I see from children to adults…

The most effective way of getting you out of pain quickly is self management. We provide a personal back pain toolkits and show you how to do stretches to ease pain and prevent pain or injury in the future.

Prevent back pain with these three simple steps.

One.

Include stretching into your daily routine, or go to a regular yoga class. Think of preventing back pain like preventing tooth decay – it’s as easy as brushing your teeth.  We love using foam rollers in clinic- a great addition to your stretching routine.

Two.

Use ice immediately to reduce swelling and inflammation on a new injury. Use heat on a recurring injury to reduce pain. You can use paracetamol to help prevent swelling and pain as well.
Three.

Research shows a 20 minute walk everyday will reduce the risk of back pain by 10-50%. Similarly if you are sitting down all day, get up to move about or stretch every 20-30 minutes (this also has the helpful side-effect of improving your concentration).

If you would like more hints and tips about prevention of back pain or musculoskeletal injury please read our blog page that details particular injuries and more helpful tips.
