You remember a little ditty about the thigh bone being connected to the hip bone, which was in turn connected to the backbone. But what else do you remember ...

Wishing you a healthy March, 

Andrew, Julie and the Team at Wellness Centre Newcastle
In February, we celebrated our 14th Birthday!

How quickly the time has passed. We would like to thank all of you who have supported us over the past 14 years. We are so grateful and honoured to be part of your health and wellness care.

Patients’ needs, and health goals are always the top priority to us here. Letting patients know that they are always heard, supported, and through patient education, encouraged and empowered to take responsibility to make a difference to their own health and wellbeing, is still as paramount to us today, as it was 14 years ago. We are privileged to work with a fantastic Team who also believe and practice this. 

We feel very inspired when we receive such positive feedback from patients who have improved in a way that they didn’t think possible. Often patients come to us as a ‘last resort’ and it is so encouraging to see and hear how Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Remedial Massage and Pilates has made such a massive difference to so many of you. 

We would like to say a special THANK YOU to everyone who has recommended friends and family to the Centre over the years.  As a small business we pride ourselves on providing outstanding care and customer service.  Your confidence in our Team is a huge compliment to us and is greatly appreciated.

 

If you are 50 or over and have symptoms that are new for you which are similar to those of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), your GP should offer you tests to check for ovarian cancer. That is because it is unusual for a woman of this age to develop IBS if they have not had it before.

You should also mention if there are two or more cases of ovarian or breast cancer in your close family, as ovarian cancer can sometimes run in families.

If you have already visited your GP and the symptoms continue or worsen, it is important to return and explain this to your doctor – you know your body better than anyone.

With the clocks changing and a lighter brighter feel to the days, many will be starting to think about Spring gardening jobs. It’s great to get outdoors and blow the cobwebs away but take care of your back with this great advice from the British Chiropractic Association.

Clothes
– Don’t wear clothes that are tight or could constrict your movement.
Warm Up
– Gardening is like any other exercise; you need to warm up first. Don’t go straight into the heavy work; start off with lighter jobs as this will lessen the chance of muscle strain.
Take a break
– Vary your activity by spending no more than 20-30 minutes on any one thing and make sure you take regular breaks.
Clever spring pruning
– Get as close as possible to the things you are pruning and avoid overstretching to reach the area you are dealing with.
– Invest in some long handled secateurs to reach plants and bushes that are beyond normal reach.
Plan ahead
– If you are planning a trip to the local garden centre or nursery to buy heavy items such as compost, buy smaller bags rather than one big bag as they are easier and safer to carry. Better still, have it delivered direct to your home.

Top tips
– Don’t lift with your arms straight out, keep the elbows bent and to your side to minimise the stress on your back.
– If having items delivered, have them unloaded as close to where you need them as possible; this will save the effort of moving them again.
– A specialist garden trolley might be worth investing in to move these sorts of materials around, especially if you have lots of patio pots to move around as well.
