Can you pass the Stork Test?

Strengthen Balance

If you don’t balance, you fall down! Our bodies would fall forward without muscles pulling us back. We’re unconsciously using our muscles reflexively to balance when we sit, stand, sleep, or work.

Habits trains the body to balance differently. Plus, injury trains the body to move in ways that avoid pain. Over time, the body adapts, and even if you change habits or the pain goes away, the unbalanced patterns of motion persist.

We often believe we’re standing straight and upright because our brain is being told by our senses that we are balanced, even though actually, we’re not.

The truth of how we stand is visible in a posture picture, or a mirror.

How balanced is your posture?

Stand in front of a mirror and close your eyes
Now stand up straight with your best posture
Don’t move, but open your eyes.
What do you see?

Is your head level or cocked slightly to one side?
Are your shoulders level or do you detect one is actually higher than the other?
What about your hips? Is your belt line perfectly level?
Is your nose inline with your belly button, and centered above your feet?
There is no such thing as perfect posture, but there are certainly stronger and weaker postures. Any asymmetry is a sign that there’s room to improve, and might be related to recurring back or neck pain. A severely crooked posture can indicate scoliosis or longstanding spinal distortion. If you notice your posture isn’t balanced consider getting a posture check from a professional.

Strengthen your Balance
Stand tall in front of a mirror
Roll your shoulders up, back and drop them down
Lift your left leg until your thigh is parallel with the floor
Keep standing tall (don’t collapse or wave your arms around)
Hold this for 5 sloooooww breaths
Repeat with the right leg
Wobbly? Touch a wall to steady yourself.

Try this daily and continue on to Stronger Posture!

Mobile phone cancer warning as malignant brain tumours double


Henry Bodkin
2 MAY 2018 •



Fresh fears have been raised over the role of mobile phones in brain cancer after new evidence revealed rates of a malignant type of tumour have doubled in the last two decades.

Charities and scientists have called on the Government to heed longstanding warnings about the dangers of radiation after a fresh analysis revealed a more “alarming” trend in cancers than previously thought.

However, the new study, published in the Journal of Public Health and Environment, has stoked controversy among scientists, with some experts saying the disease could be caused by other factors.

The research team set out to investigate the rise of an aggressive and often fatal type of brain tumour known as Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM).

They analysed 79,241 malignant brain tumours over 21 years, finding that cases of GBM in England have increased from around 1,250 a year in 1995 to just under 3,000.

The study is the first recent effort of its kind to analyse in detail the incidence of different types of malignant tumours.

The scientists at the Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment (PHIRE) say the increase of GBM has till now been masked by the overall fall in incidence of other types of brain tumour.

Last night the group said the increasing rate of tumours in the frontal temporal lobe “raises the suspicion that mobile and cordless phone use may be promoting gliomas”.

Professor Denis Henshaw said: “Our findings illustrate the need to look more carefully at, and to try and explain the mechanisms behind, these cancer trends, instead of brushing the causal factors under the carpet and focusing only on cures.”

In 2015 the European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks concluded that, overall, the epidemiologic studies on cell phone radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation exposure do not show an increased risk of brain tumors or of other cancers of the head and neck region.


This was despite a study published the previous year indicating long-term mobile and cordless phone use triples the risk of brain cancer, although this contradicted other similar investigations.

According to Cancer Research UK, it is “unlikely” that mobile phones increase the risk of brain tumours however “we do not know enough to completely rule out a risk”.

However, the organisation cautions that because phones are a relatively recent invention it may take many more years until the data is sufficient to make more robust conclusions.

Responding to the new resaerch, Kevin McConway, Emeritus Professor of Applied Statistics at The Open University, said the significance of the trend may be less clear cut than the research group claim.

But he added: “This research does point to something that may well be worth investigating further.

“Other studies in other parts of the world have found similar increases.”

“It’s important, though, to understand that this new paper did not examine any new data at all about potential causes for the increase.”

The new study list causal factors aside from mobile phone use that may explain the GMB trend, including radiation from X-rays, CT scans and the fallout from atomic bomb tests in the atmosphere.

Cliff O’Gorman, Chief Executive of Children with Cancer UK, said: “This Journal of Public Health and Environment study was published independently and was not funded by Children with Cancer UK, however any rise in the number of children being diagnosed with cancer is deeply worrying – particularly for brain tumours which have a very poor prognosis.

“Brain tumours kill more children in the UK than any other cancer. It’s essential we fund more research to make kinder and safer treatments for young patients and understand why there is an increase in incidence rates .”

"My accident was 2 years ago ... could that cause my neck pain today?"

The short answer is yes. But let's look at how the neck is injured in whiplash and why a trauma from years earlier can produce symptoms today.
Whiplash causes the neck bones to displace from the stretched ligaments and disks. Over months, the bones gradually creep further into the direction of the damaged ligaments. Since gravity is working all of the time, the tendency is for the misalignments to get worse as the days press on.
Our initial "little problem" has now become much worse because scar tissue has formed to hold the neck in this abnormal position. This may cause some joints to become less mobile and other joints to become hypermobile in an effort to compensate. Over time, this can place stress on or irritate the nerves and spinal cord. producing the pain that may eventually drive you to seek chiropractic care.
