Spinal Decompression Therapy

back or neck pain
Spinal decompression therapy can provide relief from chronic neck or back pain

If you or someone you know suffers from chronic back or neck pain, spinal  decompression therapy may provide the long lasting relief you are looking for.

Spinal decompression treatments at Surrey Pain & Wellness chiropractic clinic are combined with a customized treatment plan to help ensure that your greatest potential for recovery is achieved.

Spinal decompression is done on a specialized table attached to a module that measures the exact parameters to adjust the spine and supports the body in a comfortable position for a prolonged period (about 15-20 minutes) to begin the necessary alignment required to reduce and eliminate painful conditions naturally without medication or surgery.

While some patients may experience immediate relief,  it is important to complete the entire treatment plan as prescribed by the chiropractor to ensure lasting re-alignment and recovery from pain.

If you suffer from chronic back or neck problems, spinal decompression therapy may be the treatment that provides lasting relief and finally  puts you on the road to recovery.    Visit our chiropractic clinic at Newton Crossing for a consult to find out more or read more about spinal decompression therapy at Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic.

‘Tis the Season – So Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff!

Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic – Let the Healing Begin!

There is no doubt that our state of well being can be influenced by stress.  And while stress is not seasonal, the holiday season is one where there are extra demands on our time and expectations run high.  It is also the season where we might not eat as well or get as much rest as we normally would.

So here are some tips that will not only help you get through the holiday season, but help ensure wellness all year long and over a lifetime.
1.    Eat a fresh fruit and/or vegetable before each meal.  It will help fill you up, hydrate you and provide valuable nutrients.
2.    Supplement with a healthy fish oil and vitamin C.
3.    Commit to 20 minutes of physical activity today!
4.    Fill your water bottle with herbal, unsweetened tea such as green or peppermint to keep you hydrated.
5.    Relax before going to bed by reading, meditating or listening to quiet music.
6.    Reduce your physical stress – stretch, breathe, and get a chiropractic adjustment!

With best wishes in health for the holiday season and in the New Year!

Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic – Wellness Series Part 2 of 3

Is wellness physical health?  Quality of life?  Freedom from pain?

Health and wellness is all of these things.  Scientists have studied the lifestyles and genetics of people in history, from different cultures and environments to help understand health and longevity. This month the Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic blog is focusing on wellness.

Welcome to part two of this three part series, a focus on quality of life.

“Quality of life” is a term used to evaluate the well-being of individuals and communities. It describes how people feel about the environment in which they live, work  and play – and while the definition may differ according to levels of income, social status, health and/or living conditions, these factors don’t necessarily relate to an individual’s level of happiness.

Without trying to sound too much like an infomercial, do you want more peace of mind?  Do you long for more in control of your life?  Do you want to be excited by the possibilities each day brings when you leap out of bed in the morning?  Could you use  greater financial security or a better job?  Do you wish your life was abundant with healthy, happy relationships and energy enough to be active every day?

Sure! Who wouldn’t?  The reality is that life is often stressful. Here are 4 ideas to make small (and BIG) changes in your life that will increase your quality of life:

1)  Change what you think.  How often do you respond to life’s struggles in a negative way?  Think of ways that you have responded to the challenges life presented in the last month or so.   Can you re-think “life is hard” and approach each day with a new attitude that “life is an adventure”?  Changing what you think will change the way you feel, and eventually the way you act.

2)  Change your surroundings.  Where you live, where you work, where you play should be mostly comfortable, positive and even inspiring.  And that includes the people you interact with. Put your energy and effort into positive people and make sure your environment impacts you in a positive way.  That could mean applying for a new job, painting your kitchen or cleaning the closets.

3)  Change your level of intensity.  Do you live life at a snail’s pace?  Or are you always moving at lightning speed?  Maybe you need to speed up a little so that you aren’t bogged down with the same old routines… or maybe you need to put the brakes on once in a while and see what you’ve been missing.  Either way, you will find that you do more, and enjoy more.

4)  Change the way you look.  A new haircut or a fitness regime can inspire you to apply for a new job posting at work or make you feel more confident when you look in the mirror.

Finding ways to make small, positive changes can result in big life changes.   And that can change everything!

Surrey Pain & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic welcomes feedback and insight for those who have improved their quality of life, whether or not you are a chiropractic patient at Surrey Pain & Wellness Clinic or another chiropractic clinic.
