As Steve Miller said it many years ago “time keeps on slipping into the future”. Oh yes it does. The past few days I have heard the jingle to promote the CNE and as a child, my family and I were lucky enough to spend our summers at the cottage. We would move on the day school finished and move back home on Labour Day. The news that the Ex was starting was end of our summer holidays. The dread of heading back to school was wearing. I still have a bit of anxiousness when I hear the song “Let’s…

May 09/2019 By

A question I get asked a lot is “what happens when you adjust my spine” The answer is always “so many things!” So, I will do my best to explain what exactly happens when you get your spine adjusted. The first concept we need to nail down is not what, but WHY. Why do we adjust certain areas of the spine? A chiropractor through various methods assesses the spine to determine which joints are “stuck”, “restricted”, “subluxated” or simply put, are not moving as they are supposed to. It is then with the adjustments or manipulation the goal of the…

A few years ago I watched the television special on the 50 th anniversary of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. It seemed like yesterday. I recall that evening quite vividly as my brother Michael and I watched the show with my parents and sister. Now previous to that evening my brother and I had always emulated our older brothers. They had the slicked back hair with the ducktail, rode motorcycles, played guitars and i general seemed like cool cats in our world. They were a James Dean and Elvis mashup. In that era a “little dab will do…

This is a question that I get everyday in practice from both current and prospective patients. It is a really good question and it can sometimes be difficult to answer, so I will do my best to be as straight forward as possible. The reason it is difficult to answer is because in both professions, chiropractic and physiotherapy, there is no one way to practice. You may find 3 chiropractors that all do different things and the same goes for physical therapists.  It is important to not make your decision based on what profession they are in, but based on…

Focus on the more tender spots and where you may feel “lumps” in the muscle. These could very…

Happy Primavera all. I learned from one of my Italian patients that “Happy Primavera” means the first of spring. Here I thought it was a pasta! As the nicer weather SLOWLY approaches us, one of the things that I would like to caution you about is the way you jump into spring cleanup. We all want to get out and get things done around the house or yard and elsewhere. The problem is that many of us jump in and are going full speed because of this nice weather. During my drive at lunch I saw so many people out…
