Amy McElroy RMT shares the lowdown on low back pain.  


Chronic low back pain. It can be hard to shake, as well as difficult to pinpoint. 
Causes may include:
• strained or overused muscles 
• misalignment of spine and/or hips
• improper posture
• tight muscles -with trigger points in: hip flexors, abdominals, gluteal muscles, erectors, 
• structural imbalances-scoliosis, hyperkyphosis, hyperlordosis, 
• hormone imbalances
• organ referral pain-specifically kidneys
• trauma-whiplash or sports injury
• arthritis or irritation of vertebrae
• herniated or degenerating discs of the spine
• increased weight or pregnancy
• or even so much as a cool draft - that comes up your shirt or while you are sleeping.

Narrowing down the reason as to why you are feeling pain can be tricky and can take some time. However regular treatments from your therapists can help to identify the cause. Being more aware of your daily activities, how you sit, stand, move and how it makes you feel can be a huge help to your health care providers when trying to get to bottom of the mystery. 

Coming from someone who suffered from chronic low back pain for years, I can literally feel your pain. Advil was my saving grace before alternate therapies and solutions came on to my radar and helped my body to heal. Note that long term use of any painkiller may have negative side effects. 

So many treatment options are available nowadays. Chiropractic, Registered Massage Therapy, Laser Therapy, Acupuncture, Reflexology, and Osteopathy are all common therapies used. Modifications to your lifestyle, depending upon your cause of pain, will need to be implemented. You can't assume to see one or even a few therapists, continue exactly the way you currently do and expect to live pain-free. Changes may be necessary to work towards a pain-free life. This can consist of practising proper posture and movements, adequate sleep, change of sleeping position, new mattress and/or pillows, proper shoes with the possibility of suitable orthotics, incorporating walking into your daily activities, and a change in diet and proper nutrition may be necessary.

At home care is also very important. It may include: hot and/or cold hydrotherapy, stretching and strengthening exercises, foam rolling, muscle gels, yoga, and supplements-possibilities include: magnesium, calcium, vitamin D. Many of these can be done at work, or while watching the news or your favourite TV show; no extra time needed!

It can be a long and trying journey to find what works for you but don't concede. The professionals at Lambeth Chiropractic & Wellness Centre are willing to help you along the way!

Chiropractic Assistant Hollie Jones wants everyone to know…
"Chiropractic isn't just for back pain!"  
People are often surprised to learn that if you have a spine, it needs to be checked – regardless of age! Dr. Zeinin and Dr. Amy treat newborns - which is awesome!  Ask any woman who had chiropractic care while they were pregnant and they will tell you how beneficial that care is."

How long and what is involved in a Bach Remedy Consultation?
Lorraine Babin, Intuitive Bach Remedy Therapist explains. "Most consultations with a new client take an hour. I ask a series of specific questions that guide me to chose the appropriate combination of flower remedies needed for this safe and natural method of healing. I prepare the remedy according to the need of the client. It is ready for pick up within a day or two of the consultation."

Congratulations Clayton!
Winner of the LCWC Colouring Contest.

You may be interested to know that Clayton began coming to see Dr. Zeinin for adjustments just after his first birthday. He had a 24-degree curvature in his spine. With regular chiropractic care, his curve has resolved completely. He's now 11 years old and maintains regular checkups.

Our goal is to help every BODY be the best that they can. We encourage you to participate in our free workshops. Registration is required.

Roasted Beet and Kale Salad - Amazing topped with sliced steak from the BBQ!

Delicious and Nutritious! Dr. Tiffany Eberhard ND shares a favourite recipe perfect for bbq season!

Ingredients
  • 1.5 lb. beets, peeled and quartered or cut into bite sized pieces if you're using large beets
  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 4 packed cups of kale, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • Optional: ¼ cup goat cheese and/or diced avocado
  • For the dressing (mix well with a whisk or shake in a closed jar)
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove very finely minced
  • A pinch of sea salt or regular salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil 
Instructions
You can use precooked packaged beets, boil them or bake them. See below for baking instructions.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the beets on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle the oil over top. Use your hands to toss them in the oil. Cover beets with parchment paper. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until they can be pierced using some pressure with a fork.
Add the kale, optional cheese or avocado and the walnuts to a large bowl. When the beets come out of the oven let them cool slightly then add them to the bowl too. Pour the dressing over top and toss well so that everything is coated.
This salad is fantastic with sliced steak from the BBQ but you can add any source of protein you prefer.
