We have all been in a situation where we have experienced some kind of pain. Whether it be from a headache, a sports injury, or a fall, what was the first thing you were instructed to take? More often than not the answer would be an over the counter drug such as Tylenol or any other generic pain killer brand. Though these over the counter drugs are okay to be used in moderation,…

What is Movember and what does it have to do with me?

November 09/2019 By

Every November for the past few years there has been a focus on men’s health and in particular Prostate Cancer. Now before I get into that part of the story I want to make sure that however large the Movember movement becomes, we shall never forget our Veterans who gave it all for our freedoms and life. Many lads were but 18 years old when they faced the daunting task of war and all of its egregious trappings. We shall never forget! When men grow their facial hair in November for No shave November or Movember, it is to bring…

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…

Lumbar disc herniationsImpingement of the spinal nervesPressure on the sciatic nerve by the muscles (usually the piriformis, aka Piriformis Syndrome).

What Does a Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment Do?

May 09/2019 By
0 Comment

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…

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…

Foam Rolling Basics Infographic To share this image on your website, copy the embed code below:Please include attribution to www.oakvillechiropractic.com with this graphic.
