There is no effect without a cause. Chiropractors adjust causes. Others treat effects.

Although chiropractic has been around for years now, there is still skepticism surrounding the legitimacy of practice within the health community.
Therefore, it is important to keep yourself informed, so click the link below to read more:
If you have been in a car crash you may have experienced injury to the upper spine and neck. These are the most common areas of injury that lead to other symptoms such as joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, arm pain and leg pain. These symptoms occur when the vertebral joints and associated muscles and nerves are subjected to uncommon forces and movements associated with a car crash. It is important that you have an examination by your family chiropractor as soon as possible to support the recovery process. Consult your family chiropractor for further information as soon as possible after a car crash as well. All injury reports will be provided by your chiropractic doctor.
In many cases, people do not feel pain right after a motor vehicle accident. Some people develop pain, stiffness and other symptoms 7-10 days after an accident. This is not unusual, however, do not delay in seeking treatment from your chiropractic doctor. Seeing a chiropractor early on can prevent mild or unknown injuries before they get worse.
Severe symptoms such as headache or arm/leg pain are also common. Be sure to advise your chiropractic doctor as soon as possible.
It is important to be aware that the effects of substantive crashes may recur over 6-18 months. Symptoms and effects will lessen gradually with treatment.For most people, pain and other symptoms associated with spinal injury usually decreases by gradually returning to normal activity. Most injuries are not serious and people often recover to their pre-accident condition. The amount of disruption to normal activities vary with the circumstances of each crash.
All persons involved in a car accident (driver or passenger, fault or not at fault) are eligible to receive chiropractic treatment! Your ICBC adjuster will explain all your benefits and answer any questions you may have. Most service providers can also provide you with information.

Give your muscles a chance to warm up before working in the yard or garden. Practice stretching with the various movements you will be working in the yard, or take a short ten to fifteen-minute walk around the block.
Avoid prolonged bending, pushing and pulling while raking and hoeing, which can strain shoulders or the lower back.Use long-handled tools, or the resulting forward and sideways bending can aggravate the neck or lower back.
To avoid strain and muscle spasm on one side of the body, switch hands frequently while raking or hoeing.
When using a hedge trimmer, keep your back straight and use short strokes to avoid upper arm and neck strain. Pause after three to five minutes.
Carry medium-to-small sized loads of debris close to your body, or use a wheelbarrow to avoid strain on your back. Save heavier work for mid-way through your chores. This helps avoid sudden strenuous exertion on unused muscles and joints.
Keep overhead work to five-minute episodes. Avoid extreme reaching with one arm.
Kneel to perform tasks, rather than bend.
Stretch! Back exercises should deal with flexibility first, strength second.
Finally, if a task seems like too much work, it probably is. Hire a professional for tasks like landscaping, tree-topping or trimming large hedges.
For more information, consult with your family chiropractor.
Holidays can be a pain in the neck if you relax too much. BC’s Chiropractic Doctors offer a few suggestions for holidays.”After every holiday, people visit their family chiropractic doctor with physical complaints that are usually the result of the holiday,” says Dr. Don Nixdorf.Here are some back health tips on holiday to make your time off more enjoyable and pain free:
If you have to drive more than two hours to visit friends and relatives, take a break; get out of your vehicle and stretch. This temporarily restores normal posture, which will help prevent a recurrence of neck or low back conditions.
When loading your vehicle for the trip, organize your luggage and packages into smaller loads, as opposed to one large suitcase, cardboard box or carrying case.
Wear your seatbelt. Adjust vehicle headrests so that they are no more than two inches behind the centre of the back of the head. Many of the estimated 20 million car accident victims suffering whiplash injuries in North America could have prevented much of the injury had their vehicle seat headrests been adjusted properly.
It’s OK to be a couch potato this weekend, but don’t slouch on the sofa and don’t fall asleep on the recliner, as two or three vertebrae in the spine can assume a sharp angle. When you sit up, the normal movement isn’t restored. “We often see people walking into our offices with their heads sideways, because by slouching, the position of the joints irritates the nerves and blood vessels, causing muscle spasm,” says Dr. Nixdorf.
Avoid bending directly over the oven door to lift out the turkey. Crouch down, pull out the oven shelf, and use your legs for better balance. Avoid putting all the leverage on the lower spine. This helps reduce the sharp leverage on the lower spine.
With these few simple tips, the Chiropractic Doctors of BC wish everyone a healthy, happy holiday.
