Your Yearly Shoveling Reminder

Dr. Shima Shahidy, (Hon) B.Sc., DC
Chiropractor, Acupuncture & Graston Technique Provider

dr shima shahidyThough I hate to be a broken record, I have no choice but to do at least one shoveling reminder every winter. While the scene outside the window looked like a perfect postcard the day after boxing day, it led to at least one shoveling related fatality. So please print out the following link from the Ontario Chiropractic Association and keep it on your fridge all winter (https://d2oovpv43hgkeu.cloudfront.net/Public-Ed-Comm-Outreach/snowshovelling-pamphleten.pdf).

Here are some easy steps you can take to ensure your safety while shoveling.

1) Warm up! You have to treat shoveling like an athletic activity. Take a walk around the block and do some stretching before you begin.

2) Don't let the snow pile up! If you shovel smaller amounts of snow more frequently, you won't have to deal with a heavy load.

3) Pick a lightweight pusher type shovel to make it easier on yourself.

4) Push, don't throw the snow. Avoid lifting full, heavy shovels and sudden twisting motions.

5) Take a break! Give yourself adequate time to shovel and take rest breaks. If you feel chest pain, stop immediately and if it's severe, see a medical doctor. If you have back pain that severe or persistent, see a chiropractor.

Think ahead and stay safe this winter so you can enjoy the beautiful outdoors and avoid any injuries!

New Year, New You!

Jody Curry, B.Sc., RMT
Registered Massage Therapist & Craniosacral Practitioner

Jody Curry RMTHappy New Year! Are you one of the many people that are committing to a healthier lifestyle in 2013? Make sure that you include Registered Massage Therapy in your wellness plan.

Did you know that in addition to treating acute injuries and chronic aches and pains, massage therapy can be used proactively to keep your muscles and tissues in good condition? This is important so that you are able to more effectively handle the stresses of your busy day, as well as keep you “game-ready” for your leisure activities.

Experts indicate that massage treatments received at regular intervals can reduce blood pressure, boost the immune system, reduce harmful stress hormones and raise mood-elevating brains chemicals such as serotonin. Well-conditioned muscles are also less prone to injury when placed under stress.

It is recommended that you receive a massage every 4-6 weeks as part of a general wellness plan that includes proper diet and regular exercise. Set yourself up for success by committing to a regular massage schedule and planning ahead. Your body and the new you will thank you!
