What If They Had Been Getting Adjusted?        Article of the week June 25 to June 29, 2018

A week and a half ago, two American celebrities made headlines when they took their own lives.  Kate Spade was an American fashion designer and business woman whose name I was familiar with as my wife made mention of her purses on more than one occasion.  Anthony Bourdain was an American celebrity chef, author and television personality who I recognized from his show, “Parts Unknown”, which documented his cooking and travel adventures.

Every year there are celebrities who appear to have all life has to offer in terms of success, fame and financial security who are obviously living lives of hopelessness and despair.  Whenever I hear sad stories like these I always wonder what could have been done to help these people feel hopeful and make a different choice.  It makes we wish we were all more connected and in closer relationship with those around us so that we could be more aware of the pain others are feeling and available to provide support.

Statistics Canada lists suicide as the 9th leading cause of death in Canada and the 2nd leading cause of death in young people, those aged 15 to 34.  It's heart-breaking to think of how many kids and young ones feel helpless and hopeless.  Mental illness is a complicated health condition that requires more than one approach to manage.  As a rule I'm opposed to a lot of pharmaceutical interventions. However, I do believe that there are severe cases of depression and anxiety where medications can provide relief and help to those that struggle the most.

I also know that everyone who has ever struggled with depression or anxiety should be under chiropractic care.  My experience is that when people start to get adjusted regularly they respond more appropriately to stress and are more relaxed.  The research confirms my observation.  One study published in December 2017 found that children under chiropractic care were “less likely to report symptoms of depression”.  This is so important for you to understand that I am putting the abstract on the back of this article for you to read.  So many parents utilize chiropractic care but don't make the effort of bringing their kids to get adjusted.  Please, get your kids checked for subluxation!  Kids are under more stress than ever before and they need to get adjusted as one tool to manage these stresses. 

There are many case studies that document the success of chiropractic adjustments alleviating anxiety and depression in adult populations as well.  Getting adjusted will not only allow you to move more freely and with less pain, it will help you have a more positive outlook on life.  This week, all checkups booked for kids, or anyone that you know with a history of depression or mental struggles are NO CHARGE.  If you know someone struggling, tell them you know someone who may be able to help.  Ask them if they would like a free checkup, or to have Dr. Tim call them to discuss how chiropractic can help.  I would be happy to have a conversation with any of your family, friends or co-workers.

I want you to know that I care about your physical as well as your mental health.  If you feel you need more help than you are getting at the present time, please talk to me or one of the girls so we can have a conversation with you privately.

For the first time in 10 years I didn't have a headache when I woke up - after only one adjustment!

Highly recommend Grace Chiropractic. Their approach to chiropractic care is truly life changing. Myself and my family have all been customers of Grace and have had excellent experiences. Since starting my program with Dr. Tim I have experienced significant relief and continue to receive treatments weekly!

I have been seeing Dr. Tim and his team since December 2016. I am grateful for every adjustment I've received. Instead of just treating your current ailment, Dr. Tim goes after the overall health of your spine and nervous system as you will learn at your info session. I came to Dr. Tim with tingling hands and numbness in both my arms, not only has this improved but I'd say by February I was feeling the best I've felt for the past 7 years.....body, mind and soul. And I have my Grace team, my denne roll and the few stretches Dr. Tim has given me to thank for it! So what are you waiting for.....give my Grace family a call today....you will not regret it!!

I have been attending Grace Chiropractic for many years now. Dr Tim was the first chiropractor I saw, and he is is much more than just a chiropractor. Dr Tim and the rest of the office staff are so focused on the well being, mind, body and soul, of each of their patients. You never walk into the office without a warm greeting, and you always leave with an uplifted spirit. Dr Tim not only makes adjustments and corrects any pain, but he gives you the tools to adjust your lifestyle to ensure you are the healthiest version of yourself. I am very grateful to all the staff at Grace Chiropractic!
