Top 20 under 40 Award

I was honoured as one of the Top 20 under 40 award winners of 2017 and I had an amazing time. I wrote down my thoughts for my speech, as I was emotional accepting this award and wouldn’t have been able to say them any other way.

The people I love were there, supporting me to accept an award for doing the thing I love the most – Chiropractic.

Damn … I am lucky ….

_______

I am so incredibly grateful to be receiving this award tonight, in front of so many successful alumni and business people here, as well as in front of my loving family and best friends.

I believe I was meant to be a Chiropractor. When I graduated, I had the passion and drive to change the world and that passion and drive are as strong as ever today. I want to be a positive influence in people’s lives and help people from the inside out – from a philosophical approach that the human body is amazing and is capable of great healing.

As a sole female business owner and professional, there have been many challenges. My mistakes have taught me, and my successes have encouraged me. Hearing my patients tell me that they feel better than they have in years, they have their life back and that they are healing from all types of conditions… that it what inspires me to keep going.

I would not be where I am today without the support and love of the amazing people in my life. My parents have shown me hard work and fostered my independence. My husband has encouraged my self-confidence and loves me for everything that I am. My 6-month-old twins have helped me to develop patience, be more time efficient and have opened my heart up to a love that I never knew was possible.

To the judges and fellow award winners – thank you for choosing me as one of the winners honoured here tonight and thank you all for being incredible examples that our community continues to be in great hands for its’ future.”

Golf Injuries – Dr. Michelle’s latest CTV segment

Hi everyone,

It is that time of year where a lot of people are enjoying the game of golf.  It is a game where a lot of people don’t realize that it can cause quite a strain to your body.

CTV came to my office yesterday to interview me with some tips for preventing golf injuries.  You can click the picture below to watch my segment that was on the 6 o’clock news:


http://london.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1166041


Here are some additional tips for you to avoid golf injuries:1)  Keep your body strong with exercises and use preventative care for your body, such as Chiropractic and Massage.2)  Learn proper techniques to avoid injuries. It is never to late to get a coach to help you improve the skills of the game.

3) Warm up properly – get your blood flowing by going for a walk, stretching and doing spinal mobility exercises before you play.

And if you sustain an injury at the start of your round of golf, be sure not to “play through the pain”. You can take a minor injury and create a more severe injury by not addressing it right away.  Be sure to go to your local Chiropractor to be properly assessed.

 

Enjoy your game!

Pregnancy and Low Back Pain

Hi everyone,

Click below to watch my most recent segment on the CTV news on Chiropractic and pregnancy.  Although my being pregnant with twins is yes, putting a “toll on my low back” meaning that there is additional stress my body is adapting to, I am happy to report that I have no daily pain and I am feeling amazing during this part of my pregnancy. My Chiropractic checkups weekly, massage and exercise are keeping me strong and healthy to keep doing what I love. Although I am definitely needing a bit more rest than usual.

CTV News Low Back Pain Chriropractic Treatment and Pregnancy

Here are some of my additional tips I practice that help keep me healthy and more comfortable during pregnancy:

  • Regular Chiropractic Check Ups:  This helps to ensure that the pelvis is balanced, aligned and moving well.  This can help the baby be in the best position possible, prevent back labour and allow labour to happen as naturally and efficiently as possible.  It also can help mom-to-be to feel as comfortable as possible during pregnancy in dealing with back aches and other musculoskeletal and neurological concerns.
  • Sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees.  This helps to keep your pelvis aligned well during sleep.    And sleep as often as you need.  Take more rest during pregnancy so your body can repair and grow as needed.
  • Exercise:  The more active you can stay during pregnancy, the better your pregnancy and birth and post birth recovery can be.  Continue to do your pre-pregnancy strengthening exercise routine for as long as you are comfortable, and then make modifications as you grow through your pregnancy such as decreased frequency, or intensity, depending on the style of exercise.  You will also need to modify certain exercises as you move along in your pregnancy, so consult a personal trainer with experience in the pregnancy field for more information if you are unsure.
  • Massage:  This is a great way to relax and sooth your tired pregnancy muscles.  Women gain on average 30 pounds per pregnancy, so their muscles are working overtime.  Ensure you see a Registered Massage Therapist who has knowledge and is comfortable treating pregnant women.
  • Vitamins: Currently, I take prenatals, fish oils, probiotics, calcium / magnesium and vitamin D during my pregnancy.
  • Diet:  Be sure to eat whole and natural foods.  Lots of fruits and veggies, protein and complex carbohydrates are a great place to start.
  • Relax:  Do your best to avoid undue stress during pregnancy.  Difficult to do at times, but take time to breathe and enjoy the quiet moments before the new baby (or babies in my case) arrive.  I have been enjoying gentle yoga to help with this.
