Our Chiropractic Care & Recommendations

Our care and recommendations are based on the premise that:

  • The balance of your spine and nervous system is crucial to your overall health.
  • Pain and poor posture are sometimes symptoms of imbalance in the spine and nervous system (subluxation).
  • Chiropractic adjustments can improve the balance of your spine and nervous system, decrease your pain and increase your chances of better overall health, now and in the future.
  • Most people need support (Chiropractic or other bodyworkers) to keep their spine and nervous system balanced.
  • To get well and stay well, our recommendations focus on balancing four areas; Nutrition, Structure, Exercise, Well-being.

Our bodies were designed to function for a lifestyle that was 50,000 years ago. At Chiropractic Balance have developed ways to adapt how we move, eat and think in the modern world to be more congruent with these ancestral ways.

THE SCIENCE OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Patients who seek out chiropractic care do so for a variety of reasons, they are seeking help with alleviating back or leg pain caused by an injury or trauma, avoiding and reducing headaches and migraines, reducing the symptoms of carpal tunnel, and a variety of other issues.

By aligning the spine and correcting issues with posture, balance, and correcting their proprioception, which affects issues within the inner ear and affects our spatial awareness, chiropractors can help reduce joint pain and soreness in the surrounding muscle and tissue.

Because chiropractic care is non-invasive, it is often seen as a preferred alternative to medication or invasive surgery because it can help many patients find solace from their joint and muscle pain.

Mindfulness Month - Week ThreeThe numerous benefits of gratitude!Gratitude is simply taking time to think about all the positive things in your life. Rather than ruminating on the negatives. It does not necessarily necessitate actually telling anyone else you are thankful for the things they have done. (although, that helps)Gratitude may be one of the most overlooked tools for increasing happiness. Various research shows it is the single most powerful method of increasing happiness. Having an attitude of gratitude doesn’t cost any money. It doesn’t take much time. But the benefits of gratitude are enormous.Watch this neat video below explain the great benefits of daily gratitude: ... See MoreSee Less

Mindfulness Month - Week ThreeGratitude 🧡😀✍When you want your everyday life to improve, don't just simply search for new things to buy or new experiences to enjoy--work instead to cultivate gratitude.The benefits of gratitude are endless--and although becoming a happy, healthy human takes a lot of work, gratitude makes the journey to happiness a whole lot easier to endure.The benefits of gratitude are split into five groups: - Emotional benefits - Social benefits - Personality benefits - Career benefits - Health benefitsSimply journaling for five minutes a day about what we are grateful for can enhance our long-term happiness by over 10%! It turns out that noticing what we already have can make us feel more positive about our lives.A recent study by (Algoe, Fredrickson, & Gable, 2013) found evidence that expressing gratitude to our significant others results in improved quality in the relationship. Showing our gratitude to loved ones is a great way to make them feel good, make us feel good, and make the relationship better in general!Another benefit to both ourselves and others, gratitude can decrease our self-centeredness. Evidence has shown that promoting gratitude in participants makes them more likely to share with others, even at the expense of themselves, and even if the receiver was a stranger.Those who find meaning and purpose in their work are often more effective and more fulfilled throughout their career. Gratitude is one factor that can help people find meaning in their job, along with applying their strengths, positive emotions and flow, hope, and finding a “calling”.A two-week gratitude intervention increased sleep quality and reduced blood pressure in participants, leading to enhanced well-being. If you’re having trouble sleeping or just waking up feeling fatigued, try a quick gratitude journaling exercise before bed – it could make the difference between groggy and great in the morning! Some great ways to start your gratitude journey this week is popping an app on your phone. They have great reminders to get you in the habit to start feeling the great psychological effects of being grateful. I would recommend: gratefulness.me/Or if you like pen to paper this is a great template that you can print out and do either in the morning or at night: positivepsychology.com/wp-content/uploads/Gratitude-Journal-1.pdf ...

Mindfulness Month - Week 2The diaphragm, a dome-shaped muscle at the base of the lungs, plays an important role in breathing — though you may not be aware of it. When you inhale, your diaphragm contracts (tightens) and moves downward. This creates more space in your chest cavity, allowing the lungs to expand. When you exhale, the opposite happens — your diaphragm relaxes and moves upward in the chest cavity. Diaphragmatic breathing is helpful in reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Have a watch for this great video below and take a moment out for some deep breathing - it doesn't take much! ... See MoreSee Less

Mindfulness Month - Week 2 🧘‍♀️We all know how to breathe to stay alive. However, when we take control of our breathing, there is a whole new world of possibilities to unlock. By bringing our attention to, being mindful of our breath, we can change our physiology, mood and thoughts in just a few moments. The art of mindful breathing is a good tool to hold up your sleeve for times when you can feel the tears brewing, the stress mounting, the rage building and so on. Belly Breathing Benefits include:🔵Helps with digestion - activating the diaphragm promotes gentle massaging motions to the gastrointestinal organs. This positively impacts symptoms such as bloating, abdominal pain, urgency and constipation. 🔵Helps with lifting weight safely - if you’re a weight lifter or just enjoy weight training, it is essential to brace your core in order to protect your lower back from injuries. Belly breathing is a great way to prime the diaphragm and abdominal muscles required for bracing your core. 🔵Helps release toxins and aids recovery - our bodies are designed to release 70% of its toxins through breathing. If we are not engaging with a full breath, we aren’t able to release as much toxic build up. Studies have shown that diaphragmatic breathing increases the antioxidant defense status after exhaustive exercise and also lower cortisol levels (a stress hormone) and increase melatonin(a hormone that regulates your body's sleep/wake cycle).🔵Improves posture - you can’t fully engage with your diaphragm or belly breathe in a slouched posture. When you belly breathe - you’re forced to open up the chest and utilise your lungs a lot more - promoting more of an upright posture bringing your shoulders back and down.🔵Reduces anxiety - research has shown a marked decrease in anxiety scores in individuals that undergo belly breathing. This can be linked to the vagus stimulation that occurs whilst deep breathing as well as other physiological changes such as lowering heart rates and breathing rates. Stay tuned this week for more tips on how to do belly breathing! ... See MoreSee Less
