Chiropractic. Keeping Santa on task!

Well, another year has flown by and Christmas is upon us again. As much as we love this holiday and celebration period it can sometimes take its toll on our bodies and therefore our spine and nervous systems.

Whether it is overindulging in a bit too much Christmas pudding or wine, or lugging heavy pressies around the shops whilst stressing if you have everything organised in time for Christmas day.

It can be a stressful period on the body in many ways. So, we have come up with some simple Xmas survival health tips.

• Keep moving! Go for a walk or do some of your daily stretching exercises and make it a regular part of your holiday period.

• Leave Santa and his reindeer some carrots and apples, not chocolate cookies! I’m sure he is getting plenty of cookies, reduce those chemical stressors which affect his vital spine and nervous system.

• Try and remember your postures and optimal lifting techniques when either lugging around heavy gifts at the shops.

• If doing things you don’t normally do, like your yearly renovations or gardening works, remember to take it easy and listen to your body for any warning signs that may indicate you have subluxations. Such as reduced range of motion, stiffness, pain or soreness, etc.

• Just because it’s Christmas does not mean you have to eat the whole pudding or the whole cheesecake. Remember everything in moderation, and try to keep to a normal every day routine. According to ‘Nutrition Australia’ we put on an average of 0.8-1.5kg over the xmas period. It could take weeks just to shed those kilos again.

• Make an alcohol deal with yourself! Don’t have any more than you would have had normally if it wasn’t Christmas. Alcohol only dehydrates you and has vast negative effects on your health and wellbeing.

• Anxiety, depression and stress are very common during the festive season. Take some time out for either yourself or your immediate family. Whether it is a hobby or a quiet getaway, take some time out and remember that stress can have a dramatic impact on your spinal health.

• Get enough sleep. Plan for some early nights in as the ‘silly’ season can cause havoc with our sleeping routines.

• Keep your spine adjusted and subluxation free. Although we will be closed over Christmas, we will be back, for your backs on Monday the 4th of January.

Chiropractic Treatment for Myofascial Pain Syndrome

In addition to the many joints and bones that comprise the thoracic spine, there is a network of interwoven and layered muscles. These muscles are used to stabilize and move the spine, aid in respiration, and move the shoulder and arm.

Fascia is a layer of connective tissue that contributes to the supportive structure of the spine and musculoskeletal system. The fascia invests, or surrounds, the muscles and allows for the smooth gliding of one muscle upon another. Investing fascia helps to prevent muscles from adhering to each other.

With injury, chronic postural stress, or overuse, myofascial trigger points or myofascial adhesions may develop – all commonly referred to as myofascial pain syndrome.

Chiropractors treat myofascial pain syndromes such as myofascial trigger points or adhesions with manual myofascial therapy. This therapy normally includes the use of direct pressure upon the trigger point.
