Yes!  You Could Exercise Again!

Being able to exercise has major benefits in reducing the effects of ageing by maintaining flexibility,reducing osteoporosis and increasing energy levels. Overall, exercise is an essential anti-ageing strategy. For many people not being able to exercise even  makes them feel physically sick.

But what if you are feeling restrictive back pain and limited spinal range of motion with your gym workout you may completely lose all your motivation to exercise at all as “its all too difficult.”

In my 30 plus years of practice I have witnessed vast amounts of patients who have got their gym exercise “mojo” back with an effective comprehensive chiropractic approach.

If you are suffering “gym workout restriction” you definitely need to consider a comprehensive chiropractic examination of the spine and related joints as the mechanics of your spine has a huge affect on your ability to exercise. It is a tragedy to be forced to give up something you enjoy and is so good for you.

If gym exercise is important to you, we are ready to examine you and get proactive!

Preventing Falls

Preventing falls with regular Chiropractic care is highly beneficial.

Falls are devastating as people grow older. I cannot emphasise enough how important maintaining alignment and ultimately balance of the spine, has in reducing the likelihood of falls.

Chances of ending up in a rest home earlier in retirement is hugely more likely statistically, if you fall unexpectedly as you age.

In my opinion the upper cervical or upper neck has a considerable effect on the overall balance of the body.
A once a month chiropractic fine tuning of this area is a bargain compared with the costs of a rest home after a fall.

The upper cervical area of the spine strongly effects the built in body balance mechanisms, especially the cerebellum or that part of the brain that makes us aware of our body’s proprioception or body balance.

Over 30 years of practice, I have seen people many times foolishly neglecting their spine chiropractic-ally as soon as spinal symptoms cease.

In our older years quality of life is dependent on finely a tuned proprioception/balance system to prevent devastating falls.
The highest level of chiropractic work is to enhance neurological function not just to reduce pain.

It is far cheaper to have a monthly chiropractic tuneup rather than increasing chances of falls, followed by high monthly rest home bills.  This can be the result that comes
when independence is lost.

The above information is my opinion based on 30 years of chiropractic practice.

Chiropractic Video

THIS IS THE BEST VIDEO AVAILABLE FOR TELLING WHAT REAL CHIROPRACTIC IS ABOUT.

Best practice Chiropractic care has a higher goal of keeping the nervous system free of nerve interference, not just dealing with spinal strains.

Pain is only the tip of the iceberg!

Hip Replacement

imagesHip Replacement –  The mostly silent correctable pelvic imbalance.

One of the most invasive and expensive orthopaedic operations ($25,000 done), is hip replacements using plastics and steel. When one hip has been surgically replaced, the other hip generally follows within a few years.

It is better to have your own natural hips than artificial ones!!

The degeneration occurs silently and takes decades to develop. When hip pain appears there has been many years of silent decline.

Why?

One law we can never break is GRAVITY!

In my opinion we disturb our pelvic mechanics mostly without initial pain, either through trauma or posture, or through pelvic twisting one leg functionally gets short, and the other leg long.

Why is it that only one hip is wearing initially?

Answer:  The hip that is usually taking the greatest stress through pelvic imbalance with gravity!

As you know when your tyres are imbalanced, one tyre prematurely wears out (gets bald), because of physical imbalance to the road as gravity bears down on them.
Imagine if you had a bag of potatoes attached to one side of your pelvis?  Result – repetitive strain and early wear on one side !
You do not  even need a bag of potatoes!!  Just change your gravity centre and balance of your pelvis, give it time and then we have this “unexplained hip pain” appearing years later!

Lets get proactive if you want to be at your best in your senior years!!

In my opinion, if you were checked monthly and your pelvis was closely monitored and finely balanced chiropractically, especially  via our new Impulse IQ computerised spinal adjuster, your chances are considerably  reduced of needing a hip replacement later on in life.

Why wait until severe symptoms have set in?  Do something about preventing hip degeneration now!

Golden Bay Chiropractic Works offer a free  non invasive check concerning hip/pelvic balance to see if you are in the pelvic imbalance risk category.  We have excellent computer graphics to visually show what pelvic/hip imbalance is?
