Summer 2024!

Here Comes Summer! But where is the sun? 

Well unfortunately for Melbourne we have been getting cloudy but also very humid days, but what does this mean for the sun? In this blog we will explain the downsides to no sun but also what we should be doing to protect ourselves this summer to live a long and healthier life!

How Does The Missing Sun Affect Us?

No sun is actually a bad thing for Melbourne. This means that our beaches grow with algae and due to all the flash floods our water systems become contaminated. On top of that due to the degree of heat we have be subject to we can still get burnt by UV rays!

How Do We Protect Our Skin From The Sun?

We can protect our skin from the sun using sunscreen, hats and long sleeve clothes but also we want to be comfortable! Remember shade is your best friend and don’t forget even on overcast days we can still get burnt! But doing some type of skin covering over summer you will be reducing your risk of skin cancer and limit the damage done to your skin long term!

What Is There To Do If It’s Not Beach Weather?

There are heaps of summer activities which are great especially this time of the year! Some great summer activities include volleyball, golf, outdoor basketball or soccer and lets not forget about the tennis!

How Can Chiropractors Help This Summer?

Best thing about this period is the amount of physical activity that you can be doing outdoors but remember not to rush into thing to quickly and injure yourself! Thankfully our chiropractors are back to full speed during this period and are available 7 days late. If you are someone who is suffering from headaches, neck or back pain give our team a call on 9302 1023 or book something in online today!

Pregnancy Chiropractors 

What is the difference of a general chiropractor vs a pregnancy chiropractor? What makes them special, what more do they offer and how do they help with aches and pains differently?

What Is The Difference Of A Pregnancy Chiropractor?

Pregnancy chiropractors have specialised in certain techniques, adjustments and exercises to help alleviate a pregnancy patients aches and pains. Unlike a general chiropractor, a pregnancy chiropractor will use alternative methods to move joints, decrease muscle tension and stretch areas of concern without harming the baby.

What More Do Pregnancy Chiropractors Offer?

Pregnancy chiropractors aim to make changes to not only the body but prepare the body for birth. They can also make changes to the amount of pain and pressure felt in the pelvis especially in 3rd trimester. Pregnancy chiropractors also have the ability to eliminate common causes of pregnancy pain such as pelvic pain, back pain, headaches and round ligament pain.

When Should You See A Pregnancy Chiropractor?

The best time to see a pregnancy chiropractor is as soon as possible. Once the pain starts it will make the process a longer one and harder to eliminate. As your body grows during pregnancy the extra pressure in the abdomen and the changes to posture will make it just that little bit harder every week until action is taken. Getting a check up even without pain during pregnancy is a great way to minimize pains in the long run and prepare the body for an easy 40 week journey of pregnancy!

If you are looking for a pregnancy chiropractor in Melbourne our team of both male and female pregnancy specialists are available to help you on your journey! For more information about pregnancy care or what to expect on your first visit look into our website or call on 9302 1023 for more information. Bookings can also be made online with the represented pregnancy chiropractors across our clinic.

Pregnancy & Pelvic Pain

Are you someone that is suffering during your pregnancy? Does it feel like your pelvis is twisted and your body feels weak? Then maybe you are suffering from a well know pregnancy concern known as pelvic pain!

How Does Pregnancy Pelvic Pain Start?

Pelvic pain during pregnancy is common because of the added stress and weight from the baby. Your body struggles to keep up with the sudden changes of the bodies growth and in turn uses different postural changes to balance put the difference. In doing so, the pelvis begins to shift into an uncomfortable position and the muscles surrounding the area flare up and pull causing pelvic pain.

How To Prevent Pelvic Pain?

Pelvic pain can be prevented during pregnancy from the get go but this has to be done by changing your day to day activity. This can be things such as posture at a desk, sleeping on your side with a pillow between your legs or avoiding sitting and standing for excessive amounts of time.

What To Do With Pelvic Pain?

When pelvic pain arises movement is always key although depending on your progress through the pregnancy this can make things conplicated. Unfortunately excessive exercise can be harmful to the baby and keeping within your physical limits is key during the term of your pregnancy.

How Can A Pregnancy Chiropractor Help?

Pregnancy chiropractors help by increasing the joint space and creating positive changes through pregnancy specific mobilisation. There are also soft tissue therapies and stretches done to help alleviate pressure and tension within the area. Pelvic pain can become consistent and sharp meaning that gentle care must be taken to help alleviate the area.

What Does A Pregnancy Chiropractor Do Differently?

Pregnancy chiropractors help bridge the gap by using specific techniques to help alleviate pressure and tension within the body without harming the baby. Unfortunately general chiropractors who use heavy forces and rotational movements are not able to treat anyone who is pregnant. This is mostly due to the fact of having not specialised in pregnancy care and the different ways to help improve pain and function.

If you are someone who is suffering from pelvic pain and looking for a pregnancy Chiropractor we have a team of practitioners who are pregnancy specific. Book online today or call 9302 1023 to get yourself back on track today!

Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy

Pregnancy causes the body to go through many physical emotional and hormonal changes in such a short period of time hence why it is common for pregnant people to feel the stress and the strain during this period. Pregnancy is common for low back pain.

Is Chiropractic Care Safe During Pregnancy?

This is a Frequently Asked Question! Chiropractic care is tailored specifically for pregnancy care. Chiropractors who treat pregnancy do extra studies to understand how to best treat during each trimester of pregnancy. Be sure to find someone who has got experience and the correct tools to be able to treat for pregnancy including an understanding of what could be done to help reach your goals as a patient. As with anything remember that the earlier on you start to work on your aches and pains the quicker it will be to reach your goals. Chronic conditions that have been ongoing for more than 3 months can make things excessively worse in the long run and effect multiple areas hence why looking for care at the first sign of symptoms will make you better off!

Pelvic Pain

Pelvic Pain is the most common pain suffered during pregnancy. It is common for the pelvis to move more than usual due to the changes and expansive forces happening to prepare for the birth. This is why things can feel compressive and quite inflamed throughout the area. Our chiropractors will do their best to help manage the pain, ensure that the pelvis is in the correct position for birth and also encourage the use of certain exercises if needed to help strengthen the core muscles.

Pubic Symphysis pain

This is one of the worst pains, not only is it an awkward type of pain but with the added weight of the baby growing the front joint of the pelvis begins to stiffen up and the pressure begins to cause a tearing or pulling like pain in the crotch region. Being such an uncomfortable spot and hard to ease off our chiropractors have different types of techniques to help ease the pressure and tightness throughout the area.

Round Ligament Pain

The round ligament softens and stretches as the baby gets bigger. This in turn causes the ligament to get sore and at times can strain and cause discomfort through the lower abdomen. Our goal as chiropractors is to decrease this tension by using soft tissue techniques to eliminate pressure and tension.

Rib Pain

Rib pain is a common concern during pregnancy. Extra pressures through the ribcage can cause pinching or stabbing like pains when breathing in. This is usually seen in desk works due to their postures! Our goal as a chiropractor is to adjust the areas of concern by using low-force type adjustments and soft tissue therapies to enhance mobility and function within the area.
