Wellness Care Versus Short-Term Relief


When you’re in pain, unable to work well or enjoy your life, nothing else matters but getting well. During my thorough evaluation, I look for what issues in the spine could be problematic, creating dysfunction in the neuromusculoskeletal system. I enjoy offering hope and aid to patients with acute issues, marveling with you at what the body is capable of healing when the nervous system is clear.   You may wonder why I offer a wellness approach to care rather than a quick, get-out-of-pain plan.  I have great respect for how intricate and complex the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves are, working [...]

What To Do When You Hit A Healing Plateau


A while back I shared with you my own struggles with a painful shoulder.  I’d been having decent success recovering when, out of the blue, I got an idea. You see, I’d met an RMT/Osteopath named Ryan P. when he became a member of my practice (so I worked on him first).  I knew he was downstairs at Sutherland Chan, but I was already seeing a few other therapists and for a little while, I was hesitant to reverse the doctor/patient relationship.  Alas, I decided around the holidays to go see him, "all in". I now find Ryan to be very [...]

A drugless life – the ongoing road to naturally better health Part 2


Back to Part 1 Part 2 - Disclaimer*** The author boldly shares about her mental health journey - it goes deep, it's personal, and the primary reason her identity is kept private.  Please enjoy her openness. Coping with Anxiety Being under regular chiropractic wellness care for the last 5 years, I like to think that I have a firm understanding of the different forms of stress (chemical-emotional-physical) and how they play a role in my overall health and well-being. I eat a fairly clean diet and exercise regularly, which, along with adjustments, help keep my mind clear and anxiety manageable.  However, [...]

A drugless life – the ongoing road to naturally better health – Part 1

She has claimed chiropractic has saved her in many cases –I [...]
