Getting ahead of the curve: dance and lordosis

Getting ahead of the curve: dance and lordosis

The spine has to support every other part of the body. When viewed from the side, it has normal curves that strengthen it and keep the weight of other body parts in balance. But sometimes, those curves can become exaggerated. When that happens in the lower back, it’s called lumbar lordosis, also known as swayback.

Heel pain: the tip of the plantar fasciitis iceberg

Heel pain: the tip of the plantar fasciitis iceberg

The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. When it gets inflamed, it typically causes heel pain, the classic symptom of plantar fasciitis (PF).

Anybody can get it, but runners are particularly susceptible. The fascia is stretched tight across the bottom of the foot and the repetitive stress of running can cause small tears. Over time, those tears can lead to long-term inflammation and heel pain.

Lower Back Injury and what you can do!

Every year thousands of people suffer some type of lower back injury. This often requires a visit to their chiropractor as a result of gardening or doing some other type of yard work. This happens a lot in the spring when people are anxious to get outside and tend to their yards after months of being penned indoors by the winter season.

It is relatively easy to injure your back, especially if you are moving heavy objects around the yard. While good chiropractic care is always one of the first things you should do after receiving such an injury, you also want to consider the fact that chiropractic care, which occurs on a fairly regular basis, may help to curb some of these injuries in the first place as does following some common safety precautions when you are working in your yard. Our team can help you improve your readiness for the spring season using Active Release Technique, Chiropractic Manipulation, home exercise strategies, and improving your stretching at home as well!
