You’ve heard about it, read about it, seen it, and even smelled it, but what exactly is fish oil all about?
Take a deep breath.
Did your chest and shoulders rise or lift? Did your belly stick out? You may need to take another breath to check again. If you’ve noticed that your chest rises as you breathe, you’re actually breathing the wrong way!
Chest breathing is very inefficient for a number of reasons:
My what is causing my back pain?!
We are all aware of how things such as poor posture, uncomfortable chairs, and bad lifting techniques can all contribute to lower back pain. And maybe by now you’ve changed all these things, but still find yourself suffering. Well believe it or not, primarily for men, something small enough to fit in your pocket could be the cause: your wallet.
You’re at your desk at 3:00 pm on a busy afternoon, and try as you might, you just can’t ignore the tingling in your hands and wrists. You shake out your hands, open and close your fists a few times, but nothing seems to help.
As Canada’s National Winter Sport, you don’t have to go far to find someone who plays hockey. And whether it be at a highly competitive level, or just for fun on a backyard rink, injuries from playing the sport are extremely common.

If you’ve visited our office for chiropractic treatment before, you’ve probably heard Dr. Munn ask about your sleeping habits. While this may seem like a pretty simple question, your answers actually give a lot of insight into some of the aches and pains you might be dealing with.
We’ve all done it. The clock hits midnight, the calendar resets, and we make resolutions to ensure this year is the best one yet.
The holidays are here and it’s the most wonderful time of the year. The next couple of weeks will be spent with family and friends enjoying traditional activities like decorating the Christmas tree and watching holiday movies.
Whether we like it or not, the cold weather is here to stay. And while we all like to complain about it at some point or another, us Winnipeggers are usually pretty tough when it comes to our winters. We have plenty of tried and true ways to stay warm for the duration of the season. But for struggling families, staying warm can sometimes be harder than it seems.
This month, our office is supporting the Manitoba Chiropractors’ Association and United Way to provide over 1500 new pairs of pajamas for children whose families are struggling with issues like poverty, food security, and mental or physical illness. But we need your help!
The program runs until December 3rd, and we are collecting NEW PJs in all sizes from newborn to youth XL.
Not a patient here? No problem! Feel free to drop off donations anyway. Who knows, maybe you’ll decide to see what chiropractic is all about while you’re here!
Help us give local children a good night’s sleep this winter!
