Don't be a New Year's Resolution Casualty

New Years' Resolution Work Out Tips

  • If you are inactive and have a history of heart trouble, talk to your doctor before you start any new exercise regimens.
  • Certainly consider booking an appointment with your chiropractor - having all your spinal motor units working during core exercises. 

·         Be smart - you will not be able to undo years of poor habits in one work out. 

·         Think in terms of "Less is More" - like walking instead of running.   Opt for lighter weight to ensure full range of movement and proper form.  This plan works better because there is less  risk of injury or tissue damage with the activity.   Pain can ultimately become a deterrent from continuing with a program.

·         Go in with a plan - don't wander aimlessly from one area of the body to the other.  Split up your work outs for the upper body (arms and shoulders) one day and then your (lower body) legs and back on an alternating day.  This allows healing time and prevents injury from overstress.

·         When you are working on one muscle group - try to isolate just to that muscle group - if you can't, you are using too much weight (demonstration with biceps curl)

·         If you can hire a trainer for each and every work out that's terrific, if you are on a budget, it's still very valuable to hire someone to help set up a program and work with you until you are comfortable and consistent with the program.

·         If you are injured or more sore than usual following a work out, see your chiropractor to stay on track

Chiropractic care is funded partially through Manitoba Health for 12 visits per calendar year.  Most private insurance policies may cover the remaining uninsured fees.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I would like to thank Dr. John for helping me get moving again. If it wasn't for your help I'd still be sockless. I'd also like to thank Dr. Audrey for introducing me to the nearly instantaneous relief of acupuncture and helping me walk without pain again. You two have to be the most caring couple ever. I would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for the two of you. I can't thank you enough."

  • "For years I suffered with foot pain that made each step a misery. Dr. John found the problem and he has helped me fix it. Getting customized orthotics for my shoes was an improvement and a treatment plan for my feet keeps me going completely pain free. I really like how Dr. John's office can accommodate my busy work schedule to fit in my treatments."

  • "I have seen chiropractors all my life. Some chiropractors can be very rushed or very rigid in terms of what types of care they will offer or recommend. The care I received at this office was above and beyond anything I had before. I appreciate the availability and the consistency of care options."
    A.D., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "When I had my car accident, I was shocked at how much pain I was in. I could barely move my neck. Dr. Audrey was there for me. I was surprised at the effect that chiropractic care had on helping me to recover. It seemed that when I would start to stiffen up again, chiropractic treatment would settle things down right away. And this was a really good thing because I couldn't afford to miss opportunities or any time from work. That was two years ago. Even now that the accident case has closed I still see Dr. Audrey every month or two just to keep feeling good."
