Wellness tips


Kids and technology

More and more time is being spent in front of different sized screens and less time running and climbing outside.

Poor postures and inactivity can result in pain and injury especially as your child is still growing.

 

Gardening

Is a lethal activity!

If you are in a sedentary job all week – don’t garden all weekend. Do a little and have a break.

Your body might not recover as quickly as your rose garden.

 

A New activity or return to activity

Muscles and tendons need to adapte slowly to increased loading and activity.

Gradually increase the amount of activity you are doing whether something new or return to an activity after a break.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

BPPV causes short episodes of dizziness (vertigo) when you move your head in certain directions. Vertigo is the sensation that you or your surroundings are moving. While the symptoms of this condition are very unpleasant it is not serious.

BPPV is thought to be caused by tiny crystals (otoconia) in the semi-circular canals in the inner ear. In some cases, the condition resolves itself within a few weeks but a simple treatment involving moving the head into various positions can cure it. This treatment moves the tiny crystals away from where they are causing problems.

If you are experiencing symptoms of dizziness related to certain positions it is likely that we can cure these within 1-2 treatments. Firstly, we must exclude other causes of dizziness and then perform the simple treatment. Contact Jackie Stanley for an appointment or to discuss whether we can help.
