Thoracic mobility is a common issue seen in both active and inactive individuals. This is a great exercise to work some thoracic mobility while maintaining some muscular control. #health #fitness #exercise #exerciseoftheday #physiotherapy #chiropractic #barrhaven #ottcity #barrhavenbia #ottawa #massagetherapy #naturopathy #personaltraining

Single leg exercises are a key to avoid muscle imbalances and favoring our stronger side. A little inspiration from @deweynielsen. Single leg squat with lateral flow. #health #fitness #strength #ottawa #barrhaven #ottcity #barrhavenbia #chiropractic #chiropractor #rehab #physiotherapy #practicewhatyoupreach @UnderArmour

As we get older our ability to move our body properly, requires us to challenge our joint mobility it in a safe and progessive way. Dr. Vincelli is no "Yogi" but he has committed to improve his mobility, balance and strength with incorporating yoga into his weekly, workout routine. #wannabe #yoga #inversion #fitness #health #ottawa #barrhaven #ottcity #barrhavenbia #chiropractic #chiropractor #practicewhatyoupreach

Discussing ones mental health can make many people feel embarrassed and/or ashamed. But, understanding mental disorders, recognizing signs and symptoms, and not being afraid to seek help are imperative in preventing these diseases from taking over your life. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a fairly common disorder that affects individuals in late autumn as the days get shorter and our exposure to sunlight is decreased. Symptoms can include; lack of energy, concentration problems, anxiety, overeating, loss of libido, social and relationship problems and sudden mood changes. If you feel like this is something that may be affecting you, making an appointment with your medical doctor or naturopath may be a good start to addressing the issue.

Patients with low back, hip, knee and/or pelvic pain often present with weakness in their glutes (butt muscles). Often that weakness is more pronounced on one side, creating a muscular imbalance. We see these imbalances in individuals regardless if they are active or inactive. Even those who strength train regularly, often present with muscular imbalances. The best way to avoid this issue is to incorporate single leg exercises into your rehab and/or workout routine. Below is a good example of a single leg exercise that can be done at home or at the gym. For those who like to lift heavy, incorporate dumbbells, a medicine ball or even a barbell across the shoulders to make the exercise more challenging.
