How To Prevent A ‘Heart Attack Grill’-Like Incident

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Did you hear? Fox News reported about a man who suffered a heart attack while dining at a popular Las Vegas restaurant and the restaurant is called Heart Attack Grill.

Irony, you call it? Coincidence? Or was it a series of choices that led to an impactful wake-up call for this man? Luckily the paramedics arrived in time to help this man and reports say he is alive.

More then likely this wasn’t due to a one-time meal at a high-calorie restaurant but due to a series of choices that culminated in a traumatic and life-threatening incident.

At our clinic, Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach about choices at our wellness workshops and lectures. I tell our patients that the choices you make today in life will shape your future.  And if you want to live a life of your dreams and vision, the choices you make today absolutely matter.  So you owe it to yourself to make the right choices for your health and your well-being, not just for now but for the rest of your life.

The Top 10 Reasons For Your Child To Have A Chiropractic Check-Up

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Maple (Vaughan), Ontario – It is common for people to seek treatment from chiropractors for low back pain, neck pain, headaches or even injuries from work and car accidents.  These are conditions that are mostly seen in adults.   Since a child will not typically complain of low back pain, neck pain or headaches, the parents may never see a reason to get their child checked by a chiropractor for a well exam or a spinal / posture check-up.   However, regardless of any pain or symptom, a child may have spinal misalignments or posture displacements that could be putting strain on their nervous system.  Since the nervous system controls and co-ordinates every function of the body, it’s imperative that the nervous system remains as stress-free as possible for optimal health, optimal growth and optimal body function.

Consider this … spinal misalignments can occur at any time throughout the child’s growth, development and life.

Here are the 10 top reasons for your child to have a chiropractic check-up:

Optimal Posture Is Essential For Overall Health And Well-Being

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed one shoulder may be lower then the other? Or have you ever noticed your friend’s head is way too forward? Or have you ever look at someone else and noticed they have a “hump” in the upper back? Or has someone ever told you that you slouch when you’re standing?

These are just some of the many types of postural imbalances that are common in people, adults, teens and children alike.

Postural imbalances or postural displacements can cause strain and stress on spinal bones, nerves and muscles.  This can lead aches, pain, fatigue and even a decrease in body function and health.
