Dance is a beautiful art form. The hallmark of a great dancer is one who incorporates fluidity and mobility into their movements. This also means a dancer is one who places tremendous stress on their body.
As of 2011, 35 per cent of Canadian children aged three to seven were enrolled in organized dance. The same study says adult dance professionals spend an average of 17.7 hours in dance per week. Leisure adult participants say they devote 6.5 hours per week to their involvement in dance.Read More

Tennis elbow is a misleading name for a common injury.
Despite the name, tennis elbow is not just a concern for Serena Williams or Roger Federer.
While tennis players can be affected by this problem, it also affects baseball players, swimmers, carpenters, plumbers, meat cutters, or anyone who repeats an arm motion over and over. It can be so painful that lifting your morning cup of coffee to your mouth can become an ordeal.

Your chiropractor may be able to relieve pain in your jaw, specifically your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which can be a common sore spot for many people.

Sleep. All of us could probably use more of it with our go-go lifestyles. Approximately 14 per cent of Canadians suffer from insomnia.
A good night’s sleep is essential to our overall health and well-being.
It can be frustrating, when we do get around to getting some shut-eye, we can wake up with neck, back or shoulder pain. We should wake up from our slumber refreshed and relaxed instead of with aches and pains.Read More

The Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors has long been a huge proponent of backpack safety for children.
That’s why, as the pencils are sharpened, the smell of fresh Velcro litters the air, and your kids come to the realization their summer is coming to an end, we like to highlight the importance of protecting childrens' bodies when it comes to what is considered an essential back-to-school purchase.Read More
