Now Dr. Day aims to help seniors stay active through not only ongoing chiropractic care, but also the new balance therapy he established. Added to his rehab-equipment is a new star-machine, on which one can learn how to keep balance. Why is balance important? – you may wonder. As many as 28% to 45% of elders fall each year……

Even though one’s balance will, most likely, decrease with age, balance training can limit the loss or even improve performance. Maintaining balance means having the centre of mass within your base of support with your trunk aligned over your feet. In the past, people have tended to believe that perfect balance was best illustrated by standing on one leg and staying as still as possible for as long as possible. However, if we were to take a time-lapsed photograph of someone performing that activity over several minutes, even the most skillful mime-artist would fail to reproduce it. Thus, even when we are trying to remain completely still, our body is constantly oscillating, transferring energy, loading and unloading in a type of perfect chaos. Consequently, a human body’s systems are set up to respond to feedback, and, if we were to remain completely still, no feedback could be offered. Balance is a dynamic process, which applies to everything we do. Ordinarily, we take our balance for granted, but it is an important and vital part of our daily life.

Imbalance can be caused by age, misalignment in one’s body and many other reasons. Imbalance itself can cause vision problems, pain or weakness in hips, knees and feet, it can reduce one’s ability to lift feet and arms, and many other undesired consequences. Adjustments by Dr. Philip Day help restore proper alignment of a spine, increase wellbeing and return functionality to one’s body as well as improve the quality of life. 

If you are a senior citizen and want to improve your health and prolong your life, contact Dr. Philip Day today – BE PROACTIVE ABOUT YOUR WELLBEING!

extended family on beach Chiropractic for Your Families

Recently, more and more families started bringing their babies to Dr. Day for an adjustment. These families understand the strong cause-and-consequence relationship between one’s spine health and the overall well-being. Dr. Day is very gentle with babies and children, and the results of his treatment will be noticeable in a positive change of your baby’s or child’s behavior as he or she will become aches-free.

We have already mentioned here several times that chiropractic helps you restore your nervous system function by locating and eliminating subluxations in your spine. What is a subluxations?

A subluxation happens when one of your 24 spinal bones suddenly moves out of place due to physical, chemical or emotional stress or a series of other different reasons. Your spinal bones house the spinal cord. Your spinal cord is the communications bridge from your brain to every organ, tissue, and cell in your body. Thus, a subluxation is a serious issue that results in pressure being placed on the nerves that travel between the spinal bones. This may change the tone and function of the nervous system which is the master controller of your body. Even though it may not be immediately painful or noticeable right away, in long-term it can create significant health-related problems by reducing the brain’s ability to efficiently communicate with the rest of the body. It is obvious that you cannot function properly if your brain is unable to transmit messages to your body through your nervous system. Consequently, it is essential for your body to be able to communicate with your brain.

Subluxations can occur at any age and for a wide variety of reasons as was already mentioned above. Without being discovered, evaluated and adjusted by a professional chiropractor, these subluxations can cause unwanted significant health-issues. For this very reason, it is important that subluxations are eliminated before they have a chance to make any damages. If you seek chiropractic care only after a problem becomes noticeable, unfortunately often times at that point irreversible damage may already have occurred. Consequently, it is vital to eliminate subluxations immediately, starting from one’s day of birth.

To ensure the optimal functioning of your spine and that of each member of your family, call Day Chiropractic today and schedule a family appointment: 912-351-3644. Walk-ins are welcome!

college yoga2 300x199 Chiropractic Adds a Great Value to Your Health

Chiropractic has a simple philosophy that can enhance your life and make you a happier, healthier person. Many people do not understand the purpose of chiropractic and how it can benefit even the youngest of patients. That’s right; kids (and babies) can derive great benefit from chiropractic care for the same reasons that adults see such amazing changes to their health. The truth of the matter is that chiropractic is a tool to help your body do what it already does every day; keep your body healthy and functioning properly.

Chiropractic care helps restore nervous system function by seeking out subluxations in the spine. As you may already know, your spine is made up of 24 bones that house your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is the bridge from your brain to the rest of the nerves that run to every cell, tissue and organ in your body. A subluxation happens when one of your 24 spinal bones move out of place due to such things as stress, trauma, physical exertion, etc.

A subluxation is a serious issue that results in pressure being placed on the nerves that exit between the bones of your spine. It may not be painful or even noticeable, but it can create long-term problems and cause degeneration within the bones of the spine. If left untreated, the subluxation may lead to great pain and will eventually create more serious health issues.
Imagine a garden hose. If you have a garden hose hooked up to a sprinkler in your yard and you stand on the hose, you will find that the water flow decreases to the sprinkler. When you step off, the flow of water is restored without restriction and the sprinkler is once again operating at its full potential.
This same thing may be happening within your nervous system as you read this article.
For this reason, it is important that subluxations are eliminated before they have a chance to do damage. We all have a spine, and these problems can begin from birth. If you have ever watched a baby being born, you might realize how much exertion is placed on the head and particularly the neck during the process. A baby can very well be subluxated from the birth process alone. This can lead to immediate health issues and hamper proper development.
While children are more resilient to these issues than adults, they are not resistant to them entirely. Eliminating subluxations in the spine before they have a chance to cause degeneration will allow a child’s body to stop a potential problem before it starts. Most adults seek chiropractic care only after a problem becomes noticeable. At that point in time the damage has already occurred and we must play catch-up to restore proper nervous system function. If the degeneration is too severe, it will not be correctable.
