Chiropractic care has been getting phenomenal results for over 120 years.

There are, however, things which you do as a chiropractic patient, outside of the office, which can help accelerate your results. The main thing you can do is to nurture activities which help you maintain your adjustment for longer so that your body continues to function and heal more effectively while you are away from us.

Here are a few home help tips to get you started! Enjoy!

Exercise for Rounded Shoulders and Forward Head Carriage – Part 1 – The Stretch

Sat at the computer or at a steering wheel all day? Tingling in the hands? Pain between the shoulder blades? Worried that the muscle development at the base of your neck (which is often sore, especially at the high “bump”) is getting bigger? Try this stretch to get movement to the area.


Exercise for Rounded Shoulders and Forward Head Carriage – Part 2 – Strengthening

Now, in Exercises for Rounded Shoulders – Part 2 Loving Life Chiropractic Doctor, Craig Hindson demonstrates strengthening the muscles and re-educate the nerve system to help keep the shoulders pulled back, the chest more upright and the person taller.

This reduces premature ageing at the base of the neck and top of the shoulders and thus reduces pressure from the nerve system that runs through and exits at the spine in this area (spinal segments C5 – T3).


Lifting Correctly (Using Your Butt!) To Protect your Spine

Getting a stiff lower back after shoveling either in the garden or in snow banks (depending on the time of year). Dr Craig Hindson of Loving Life Chiropractic Ottawa explains why lifting with your legs is old thinking and may be contributing to declining health issues from general lifting. Today, there is a new and better way to lift which engages back, leg and mid-rift muscles. Check it out here.
