Tune Yourself Up!Dr. Anna Neff
SUMMER IS HERE!
The warmer, dry weather has certainly motivated many of us to start gardening, do some renovations, golf, cycle, and generally becoming more physically active. Now is the time to make an appointment for a “tune-up” to get those joints and muscles more mobile! This helps you restart activity safely and prevent injury after the inactivity from our winter hibernation. Some of you may have already started new physical activities and may be feeling the effects of those in your body—-some positive and some negative!
Check out the following link to the Ontario Chiropractic Association’s pamphlet on reducing your chance of injury with gardening: https://chiropractic.on.ca/self-management/get-set-to-garden/
Chiropractic and Massage Therapy can help you regain the ability to move more efficiently while preventing the worsening of existing conditions by the increased activity that comes with this time of year. An evaluation of your musculoskeletal system will identify any areas of pain or disfunction. We can use a variety of techniques such as, Chiropractic Adjustments, Acupuncture, Laser, or Massage Therapy to help alleviate your symptoms, correct malfunctions, and aid in recovery from injuries. We also work with auto insurance health claims and help patients regain function and recover quickly from injuries associated with Motor Vehicle Accident.

Compression socks keep swelling from building up in the lower legs and feet. It helps to maintain the integrity of the veins in your legs, which aids in comfort, mobility, and muscle strength and function. Whether you’re on your feet all day, sitting for long periods of time, working out, or flying in a plane, you will find that your legs and feet feel great when you remove the socks! And they’re a lot easier to put on than most people think! Most insurance companies either have a coverage amount or a limit on the number of pairs covered. The cost for Compression socks is $85/pair, and they come in different colours and styles.
