Muscle stiffness, tension headaches and upper crossed syndrome are just some of the many possible symptoms one can experience through long periods in a bad posture. Many of us treat the symptom through massage, pain meds etc. While these interventions may help us in the short term, they do not address the root cause of the problem. We will look at some preventive approaches in upcoming episodes. Don’t forget to turn on post notifications for our page (tutorial at the end of the video), to not miss out on future videos. #neckpain

Client quote of the week! I've had such a touching week saying goodbye to some of my current clients who aren't coming over to see me @openspacehealing. You've all touched me and taught me something too. I am so grateful to be in this profession! Educating people about true health and changing the mind set from 'taking painkillers to get rid of the pain' to correcting the underlying physical, diet-related and emotional causes for optimum health is just... powerful . For me and you. .

Lots of people get around on bikes in the summer but make sure when you are riding, you are using correct riding posture. Extending your back while riding can cause back and neck pain.

A week with the youngest kid gone means a lot of me time . Started my week with a trip to the chiropractor trying to get my neck somewhat back to normal, went for a massage because that neck wouldn't give up, used my awesome oils time and time again to get me through, had a dinner date with my husband, stopped and enjoyed the flowers, and borrowed a friends biomat. Thanks to this oily journey for helping me to learn how to slow down and enjoy every moment. What a lovely quite week it has been but alas it's almost time to go pick that spunky girl up from camp. #wellnessjourney#biomat#momtime#enjoyeverymoment#ylessentialoils#chiropracticadjustment#massagetherapy#friendsarethebest
ACL Rehab - Knee Extension
One of the foundational components of ACL rehab is getting full active extension back. NO EXCEPTIONS. I can not tell you how frustrating it is when someone comes to see me 5-6 months out from surgery and still don’t have full extension. I personally really push my patients to work on it frequently and I want them to it very close to full range by 6 weeks. I am filling to spend more time on regaining full extension and waiting on strengthening because if the knee the can’t fully extend, they will never get full quad strength back. Literature supports the optimal “window” for getting full range back is in the first 6 weeks.
I’ll be posting a few of my favorite more advanced active knee extension exercises and explaining why I like to use them.
Another variation of TKE that I like to use, credit goes to @strengthcoachtherapy who taught this to @taylor.eckel. The band served as an external cue and I’ve found patients tolerate this well and can feel their quad working. The first version she’s performing around both legs and the second one is isolated to just her left. #WesleyTalksACLs

A new neurostimulator called the HF10, and it has dramatically reduced pain for many patients. The HF10 neurostimulator, an implanted device that sends high frequency pulses to nerves through wires near the spine. The HF10 is good for people with moderate to severe back or leg pain that they’ve had for more than three months. They also need to have tried other treatment like medications or physical therapy first.
Sprained ankle? Here is the most effective treatment for an acute sprain. 1. Chiropractic adjustment to realign joints. Like fixing the alignment on your car after hitting a pothole.
2. Laser therapy. This sweeps away inflammation while stimulating cells to heal, dramatically speeding up recovery. 3. Kinesio tape. This is a way to help take the pressure off the strained ligaments and tendons and promote blood flow for up to 2 days. At Tidewater Chiropractic this is an example of the treatment you are going to get. Professional, state of the art, highly effective treatment to get you back to your peak performance!!
