No Pain, More Gain

Emerito R. Daluz
Emerito R. Daluz RMTRegistered Massage Therapist, Sports Injury Therapist & Certified Personal Trainer

Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Often it is caused by intense or damaging stimuli.

A majority of the people will accept that pain is something they have to live with. As the population ages they assume that aging or increased activity is synonymous with pain.

Much of pain is preventable and/or reversible, when one understands the physiology behind many common causes of pain and what can be done to end the pain cycle.

By re-educating or retraining your body, you will be able to reverse the side effects caused by years of structural adaptation. As a result, pain symptoms will be minimized.


 

Let's take a look at 3 steps to manage pain:

1. Treat the symptoms

Massage therapy offers many ways to reduce pain symptoms. Depending on the extent of the injury or chronic pain, techniques such as trigger point therapy, myofascial release, or general massage can help in alleviating pain symptoms.

2. Assessment to determine the cause

Cause of pain can be due to repetitive habits, from sports, work or daily living activities. A full body assessment is required to determine imbalances in the muscles of the body.

3. Rehabilitation program

After determining the state the muscles are in, the final stage in pain management is rehabilitation. A proper exercise program specific to the condition to reverse or correct the altered structure must be implemented to end the pain cycle.

Welcome Back Dr. Shima

Dr. Shima Shahidy, (Hon) B.Sc., DC
Doctor of Chiropractic Acupuncture & Graston Technique Provider

Shima ShahidyI'm excited to be returning to Wellness on a part time basis as of August 2nd. I can't believe how quickly these 5 months have gone by! And now, between Dr. Tara Brown and me, we will have chiropractic care available at least four days a week.

During my pregnancy and while on maternity leave, I've been on the receiving end of excellent chiropractic care on a regular basis. This great care reminded me of why I became a chiropractor. While many patients will often first come to see me because of an injury, I also treat patients during times of change in their lives: pregnancy, childbirth, training for an athletic event, children and teenagers as they are growing are just some examples.

With fall and the new school year fast approaching, we all need to prepare ourselves mentally and physically for changes in our schedules, the weather and new activities. I invite you to come in and have a checkup to discuss your health goals and address any issues you may be neglecting. As always, we are pleased to do a complimentary backpack assessment and teach your children and teenagers how to protect their spine. Please let reception know what you would like to see us about and they will help you schedule an appointment time that fits your needs.

 

Please call us at 905.465.4595 for more information and to book your appointment.
