Indeed it is! Proper spinal movement is aligned with flexibility and strength. Having adequate flexibility of tissues around the spine and pelvis allows full normal spinal movement, prevents abnormal force on the joints, and decreases the possibility of injury.

Stretching exercises prepare muscles for activity. Stretching before and after a workout can prevent muscles strain, soreness and help to avoid injuries. These exercises will help improve your flexibility and strengthen muscles. We want to help you achieve better motion, flexibility, movement, weight, health and more. It’s all connected.

Contact LiveWell Health about how we can help with stretching and flexibility.

Every day people suffer from pain, suffering and/or frustration caused by allergies and sinusitis. If you’re experiencing allergies or sinus issues, you’re not alone. We can help, through our proven natural, holistic approach to treating allergies, sinus conditions and much more. Allergies occur when the body’s defence system, the immune system is hypersensitive to a harmless substance, called an allergen, and treats this substance as if it were a harmful or foreign invader.

Attempting to defend itself against the allergen, a substance like pollen, dust, mould, smoke, or pet dander (scales of skin), the body produces an antibody (a type of protein), which results in symptoms like itchy, watery eyes, a runny or stuffy nose, scratchy throat and sneezing. In more severe allergic reactions, rashes, hives, a drop in blood pressure, difficulty breathing or even death can occur. At LiveWell, we treat sinus issues, allergies and much more – all through natural, holistic means. Contact us today to book an appointment!

Chiropractic care in pregnancy is an essential ingredient to your prenatal care choices. A large percent of all pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy. This discomfort is due to the rapid growth of the baby and interference to your body’s normal structural adaptations to that growth. Pre-existing unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis become overtaxed during these times. The added stresses lead to discomfort and difficulty while performing routine, daily activities.
As your baby develops, your uterus enlarges to accommodate the rapid growth. So long as the pelvis is in a balanced state, the ligaments connected to the uterus maintain an equalized, supportive suspension for the uterus. If your pelvis is out of balance in any way, these ligaments become torqued and twisted, causing a condition known as constraint to your uterus. This constraint limits the space of the developing baby.

Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Specific adjustments eliminate these stresses in your spine, restore balance to your pelvis and result in greater comfort and lifestyle improvements.

If you or someone you love is experiencing mood swings, we can help. Not through big-pharma drug treatment, but instead using a natural, holistic, proven approach to address the root cause of the mood swings and help the mind and body get on the path to recovery. Most people that have mood swings do not even realize how unpredictable their moods can fluctuate. They can become irritable and unreasonable over the smallest of things and sometimes are quite difficult just to be around. Medical doctors mostly treat these symptoms with medications compiled of chemical solutions that may have negative side effects worse than the symptoms themselves.

These moods swings may be the result of a person’s body missing a natural and needed ingredient. Chiropractors take a natural approach to treating these symptoms through diet, supplements and exercise. Many Chiropractic patients have found relief and can live normal, healthy lives again.
