Summer is in full swing! I know this may not be a problem for some of you, but sunburns just seems to be part of my DNA. I blame my mother for the freckled skin. LOL.

Many of you will be tackling outdoor projects around the house, especially in the yard. Over the years, I have noticed after a long weekend for example, many people come  into our Chiropractic Clinic, located in Oakville, hobbling into the office with self-inflicted injuries so to speak. Those first few weekends in May and June, require us to trim the bushes, edge our lawns, till the soil , rake and dig in plants. Quite often this…

Throughout the world, part of May is designated as Spinal Health Week or Awareness. I believe Australia may shine the light on this for the entire month. Over the years I have been in practice it has been my goal to inform people how very important the spine plays in your entire health and wellness profile. “As the twig is bent so grows the tree” has been a rallying cry to promote the narrative of spinal health. This does not only include the concept of a child with a curvature or initial stages of scoliosis, but a lifetime of health…
