BioFreeze:

If you are looking for some extra help with pain management after your appointment. We sell BioFreeze here at the office for $25!

A description of BioFreeze from their website: “Biofreeze, sometimes called “cold therapy,” consists of applying a topical menthol analgesic to soothe minor pain of the muscles or joints. The cold sensation works with the nervous system to override the communication of pain to the brain, and menthol is thought to work with the skin’s cold receptions to offer additional pain relief. The active ingredient in Biofreeze is menthol”.

Lets talk Orthotics👟

As we navigate through our daily lives, every step we take plays a crucial role in our overall well-being. Yet, for many, each step can be a source of discomfort or even pain due to underlying issues with foot alignment and posture. This is where orthotics come into play – a solution often overlooked but tremendously impactful in promoting holistic health and wellness👟!

At CCC, we understand the significance of addressing the root causes of discomfort to foster a pain-free lifestyle. Orthotics, custom-made inserts for your shoes, offer a tailored approach to support your feet, correct imbalances, and alleviate pain. Let’s delve deeper into the manifold benefits of orthotics:

1. Improved Posture and Alignment

The foundation of our body’s alignment begins with our feet. Irregularities in foot structure can lead to misalignments throughout the body, resulting in discomfort and pain. Orthotics provide crucial support to realign the feet, subsequently correcting posture and promoting optimal spinal alignment. By addressing the root cause of misalignment, orthotics offer a comprehensive solution for long-term postural health.

2. Pain Relief

Chronic foot pain can significantly impact daily life, limiting mobility and hindering productivity. Whether stemming from conditions like plantar fasciitis, bunions, or flat feet, orthotics offer targeted relief by redistributing pressure and providing cushioning where needed. By alleviating strain on vulnerable areas, orthotics reduce discomfort, allowing individuals to move with ease and confidence.

3. Injury Prevention

Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining an active lifestyle. Orthotics act as a proactive measure against injuries by providing stability and support during physical activities. By enhancing shock absorption and promoting proper biomechanics, orthotics reduce the risk of common injuries such as shin splints, stress fractures, and tendonitis. Whether you’re an athlete or simply enjoy staying active, investing in orthotics can safeguard against potential setbacks.

4. Customized Support

One size does not fit all when it comes to orthotics. Unlike generic shoe inserts, custom orthotics are crafted to address your unique foot structure and specific needs. Through a comprehensive evaluation and analysis, our chiropractic team designs orthotics tailored to accommodate your unique biomechanics, ensuring optimal support and comfort. This personalized approach maximizes the effectiveness of orthotics, delivering unparalleled results tailored to you.

In every step, let orthotics be your trusted companion on the journey to a happier, healthier you, watch Dr. Michelle give a little bit more on orthotics:

Six Alternatives to Tummy Time

👶💪 Tummy Time & Beyond! 🌟

We all know the importance of tummy time for our little ones – building those muscles, supporting motor skills, and setting the foundation for crawling and more. But did you know there are other ways to give your baby the strength and stimulation they crave? Here are 6 excellent alternatives:

  1. Football Hold – Just like carrying a football, hold baby securely under your arm, head facing out.
  2. Upright Carry – Let them see the world from a new perspective, head up and taking it all in.
  3. Lap Hold – Place them face down on your lap, a perfect position for some bonding while strengthening.
  4. Shin Hold – While sitting, rest baby on your shins for a mini seesaw experience.
  5. Chest Hold – Heart to heart, this hold offers warmth and a chance for those tiny muscles to push up.
  6. Side Lying – Laying on their side, baby can work on balance and lateral muscles.

Let’s give our babies the best start with varied, engaging holds that promote growth and connection. Mix it up and watch them thrive! 🌱✨ #BabyGains #ParentingTips #TummyTimeAndMore

 

Instant Sinus Relief

 

Instant Allergy Relief: Facial Pressure Points

Are allergies and blocked sinuses causing you discomfort? Discover the power of facial pressure points to alleviate these issues quickly. Here are three key areas to target for instant relief:

1. Over the Eyebrows (frontal sinuses):
Located at the inner corners of your eyebrows, make a sweeping motion outward on these pressure points to help relieve sinus congestion and promote better breathing. Apply gentle pressure to these points. Repeat as needed throughout the day to experience relief from nasal congestion.

2. Cheekbone (maxillary and ethmoid sinuses):
Situated directly below the pupils, on the cheekbones, these pressure points can alleviate sinus congestion and reduce facial pain caused by allergies. Apply moderate pressure to these points using your index or middle fingers and massage in a sweeping motion for about 30 seconds. This technique helps drain the sinuses and provides relief from blocked nasal passages.

3. Jaw Points (maxillary and sphenoidal sinuses):
Located just below the earlobes, these pressure points can help relieve sinus pressure and ease allergy symptoms. Apply gentle pressure to these points using your thumbs and hold for a few seconds. Repeat as needed to experience relief from sinus-related discomfort.

Remember, while these pressure points can offer temporary relief, it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for a comprehensive treatment plan. If you experience severe allergies or chronic sinus issues, seek medical advice for a proper diagnosis and personalized treatment.

Incorporating these simple pressure point techniques into your routine can provide instant relief from allergies and plugged sinuses. Try them out and enjoy a life free from the discomfort of allergies. Breathe freely and feel the difference!
