“CHIROPRACTIC FIRST” – A Book Review

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Today, I am writing a short book review of “Chiropractic First: The Fastest Growing Healthcare Choice … Before Drugs Or Surgery”, by Terry A. Rondberg, DC.  Dr. Rondberg is the CEO and founder of the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA). 

If you are looking for a simple, yet thorough review and understanding of chiropractic, the chiropractic profession and how chiropractic works to help people get healthy and stay healthy, then “Chiropractic First” is a must read.  We keep a copy of this book in our reception area for our patients to read and we often give it away as a gift to patients.

“Chiropractic First” is a nice, easy-to-read and thorough review of what chiropractic is and how chiropractic helps people. The author does a super job of explaining the essence and purpose of chiropractic care, which is, the correction of nerve interference caused by subluxations (spinal misalignments).

When it comes to the human body, many people are curious to how organs and body systems work.  Well, this book goes on to describe the major organ systems of the body (like the heart, lungs, stomach), giving a simple explanation of their overall function. 

Of importance to people seeking a chiropractor for chiropractic care, the author explains what to expect during a typical chiropractic consultation, examination and the report of findings. This section is of great importance, especially for someone who is first visiting a chiropractor.

There is a nice overiew of the benefits of chirorpactic care for children and as well for the elderly. 

Dr. Rondberg also goes on to show some of the latest chiropractic research that was available at the time of publication. 

“Chiropractic First” is an easy read and I highly recommend it to anyone who has never been to a chiropractor.  It is also a very enlightening read for anyone who has or is currently seeing a chiropractor. Be sure to ask your family chiropractor about “Chiropractic First”, by Dr. Terry Rondberg.

Children need chiropractic care too …

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

Many parents walk into a chiropractic office and never realize that chiropractic care can also be very beneficial for children.  Chiropractic care is gentle and safe and beneficial for children of all ages, including babies.  Here is a great article written by a pediatric chiropractic collegue, Dr. Claudia Anrig.  I have had the pleasure of attending a chiropractic pediatric seminar by Dr. Claudia Anrig in Toronto, who is a teacher for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).  She is also the author of the textbook, Chiropractic Pediatrics.

Follow the link and read the article. Dr. Claudia Anrig answers questions commonly asked by parents in a family wellness chiropractic centre.

Questions like …

Why should I bring my child to a chiropractor?”

Why should children be under chiropractic care?”

Will my child be adjusted every time I bring them in to have their spine checked?”

Can women who are pregnant receive chiropractic care?”

“What is the Webster technique?”

And much more.

Here is the link to this article.  Enjoy.

Health and wellness education for the worker.

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Many of our patients, their friends and their families enjoy attending our in-office health and wellness workshops.   These are held at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  Check out some of the topics and feel free to attend any that interest you.

Just like we do in-office wellness workshops, we also deliver cutting edge health and safety workshops for the worker at the place of their employments.   These Corporate Wellness Workshops are delivered on-site, during a lunch break or during a company health and safety day.  

Workers benefit tremendously and so does their company.   Through the various workplace workshops, we teach workers how to lift properly, how set up a computer desk to be ergonomically correct, and how to  strengthen their  core.  One workshop specifically guides workers through a 15 minute stretching routine which helps to relax muscles, ease tension and relieve stress.

Check out our Corporate Wellness  page for more detailed information.  Our Corporate Wellness workshops are catered for factory workers, plant workers and also office workers. 

If you would like to bring one of these Corporate Wellness workshops to your company, give us a call at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre (905) 303-1009 and we will help set this up for your workers.
