Drop adjustments for severe low back pain

Are you concerned about the “pop” you hear during a manual adjustment?

Although a manual adjustment is very safe and the right move for the right population, there are alternatives.

At Campbell Chiropractic Centre, we offer DROP adjustments that are safe and effective.

No pops or clicks, but all the results.

An excellent core exercise that doesn’t involve spinal flexion

Hold the kettlebell by your side and walk while engaging your core, like you would if you were carrying a suitcase 😉

The suitcase carry is a simple exercise that targets the muscles in your core, shoulders, upper back, arms, and the muscles of your lower body, specifically the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluts, hip flexors, and calves. It’s also a useful move for improving grip strength.

Simple shoulder blade strengthening exercise to help with neck and shoulder pain

 

This exercise is the shoulder blade squeeze with an exercise band to help to strengthen to prevent and relieve rib and shoulder pain.  This is one of my favourite exercises that I do as a warm up before I lift weights in the gym.

It helps to reduce the head forward and shoulder forward position.  And with all of us working at home, online schooling and spending so much time on our phones, this is so important to work on.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

As always, I’m here to help.  If you are having symptoms that you can’t get rid of and would like some guidance, contact us.  We are accepting new patients at Campbell Chiropractic Centre and we have Saturday and evening appointments available.

We offer online booking for new patients.  Click the LINK HERE to book in for your initial appointment.

Chronic pain relief by strengthening the glut muscles

I see a lot of patients in my office with Chronic Low Back Pain.

That nagging back pain that comes and goes, sometimes is worse than others and sometimes has a sharp pain shooting down your leg.

A lot of times, we find that the gluts aren’t strong enough to support the low back.

This exercise can help the pain in the low low back by strengthening the gluts.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes!

MOVE your body, however makes you happy!

We are in Ontario lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t move your body.

Moving your body makes you feel better physically and mentally.

My husband took this video on the weekend after I did my weight work out, the kids joined me for some cardio fun!

I followed along with Alex’s dance moves and definitely got my heart pumping. Working out doesn’t have to be only weights and exercises. It can be MOVING your body with your family with laughs and smiles.
