SPINAL HEALTH WEEK 2012

SPINAL HEALTH WEEK 21-27 MAY 2012.

Sit right and sit less for a healthy spine.

Do you spend most of your day sitting, whether it’s at work, in the car, on public transport, or watching TV? Well, you’re not alone. Australia is a nation of ‘sitters’ and its starting to take its toll on our health.

As part of Spinal Health Week 2012, your chiropractors will be encouraging patients and the community to prioritise their spinal health by sitting less and moving more.

The week heralds the launch of Sit Right, a national initiative that aims to encourage Australians to take note of the potentially dire health consequences from prolonged sitting.

Australians are spending more time than ever sitting which not only causes spinal damage and back pain, but increases the risk of disease and even death. Sit Right focuses on the dangers of long-term sitting, especially for office workers, and offers solutions for common ‘sitting sins.’

So why not improve your health simply by standing up and moving around more? It’s also important you take regular breaks from sitting to stretch, stand, change or correct your posture or walk around your office.

And while you are sitting, here are a few things to remember:

* Keep your hips, elbows and knees at open angles (slightly more than 90 degrees)

* Recline slightly to ease lower back pressure

* Ensure your feet are flat on the floor or on a footrest

* Position the centre of your computer screen at eye level and tilt the monitor upwards slightly

* Only use wrist rests while resting, not while typing

* Download the Sit Right widget on to your computer as a prompt for taking regular breaks www.SitRight.com.au

An active spine is a healthy spine and a healthy spine leads to a healthier life. Why not use Spinal Health Week to make an appointment with our clinic to assess your spinal health and discuss how being more active will improve your wellbeing? During the month of May VPCC will be conducting workplace health presentations to educate local businesses and their staff.


Welcome to Dr Danielle Guilmette

Whilst we are sad to farewell Dr Griffiths, we are thrilled to announce the latest addition to the team at VPCC. Please welcome Dr Danielle Guilmette. Dr Guilmette will be taking over from Dr Griffiths from Monday 26th March and will be consulting all day Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and every alternate Saturday morning.

Dr. Danielle Guilmette graduated from Sydney’s Macquarie University after completing a 3 year Bachelor of Chiropractic Science, and a 2 year Master of Chiropractic. In 2009, Danielle was invited by Sports Chiropractic Australia to be one of the volunteer treating chiropractors at the Sydney World Master Games, contributing to the delivery of over 5000 chiropractic consultations to the athletes,  volunteers, and the general public.

Danielle regularly attends seminars to broaden her knowledge base and skill set, training in many different chiropractic techniques so as to deliver the best possible care, treatment and education to all of her patients. It is Danielle’s goal to inspire, educate and motivate her patient’s towards their best possible health and wellness.

Out of hours, she enjoys going to the gym, running and doing bikram yoga. Danielle’s training and career has previously been Sydney based, where she enjoyed working by the beach in Maroubra, but has relocated to Adelaide to settle down with her partner Ryan, who is also a practicing chiropractor.

Danielle looks forward to caring for you and your family, and assisting you to achieve your health goals.

 

 

 


Farewell Dr Griffiths

We are sad to announce that Dr Griffiths will be leaving VPCC. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Josh Griffiths—he has been such a wonderful addition to the team here at VPCC for many years and will be sorely missed. We appreciate the care and compassion he has shown to everyone he has come in contact with. We wish Josh & Naomi all the very best as they embark on the next phase of their lives with baby Tyler. Dr Griffiths’ last day is 23rd March.

 


Congratulations Dr Paije Cox

Our congratulations also go to Dr Paije Cox who recently got engaged to Tom Nitschke

Put your best foot forward and Just Start Walking this National Chiropractic Care Week

Just Start WalkingChiropractors around the country will be using the month of May to help patients and the community to put their best foot forward and start walking their way to health and wellbeing.

National Chiropractic Care Week 2011 marks the launch of Just Start Walking, a new health initiative that highlights the importance of posture and mobility on our overall health and wellbeing.

It’s no surprise that in modern times we have become much more mobile through portable technology, but physically we are much less active.

Yet our human body is designed for movement, so to keep your spine at its best we need to stay active. After all, an active spine is a healthy spine and a healthy spine leads to a healthier life.

The good news is we can do something about it. We can Just Start Walking. Why walk? Well it’s simple, inexpensive, easy and achievable.

Your overall health can be affected by the health of your spine so use National Chiropractic Care Week to make an appointment with our clinic to assess your spinal health and discuss how you can start walking your way to wellbeing.

To get in tune with your body, contact Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic for an appointment today.

You can also visit the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s new website at www.juststartwalking.com.au and download the mobile phone app to help get you on the front foot to health and wellbeing!
