Any great health & wellness plan here in Edmonton is not just about regular visits to your friendly neighbourhood Chiropractor, Acupuncturist or Massage Therapist.  There are numerous smart choices and tiny changes in habits you can make to prevent some of the reoccurring problems that surface.

At OCWC we’ve done hours of research to find the highest quality pain relief and prevention tools to keep you operating at full capacity.

Below are some of our bestsellers and the ones we love to recommend.

Sit Discs & The Evo Chair

Most people spend over 8 hours per day sitting down or sedentary, not including sleep. This type of lifestyle because of poor posture and chairs can cause weak backs and hips. The sit disk & Evo chair are a great way to combat this fatigue and engage your core more during the day. Plus they’re fun to bounce on!

Foam Roller

The foam roller is great at stretching out and relieving any tight muscles or tissues. Use it while you’re watching television or relaxing at the end of your day.

Pressure Point Tool

This is a great tool to keep at the office or home to relieve those reoccurring knots or tight muscles in your back.

Chiro Flow Water Pillow

The Chiro Flow water pillow is a great substitute for whiplash patients and neck or headache sufferers.  It’s fully adjustable bladder allows you to customize it for your needs and comfort level.

The 3 Most Positive Effects of Vitamin D

The 3 Most Positive

Side Effects of Vitamin D

Vitamin D equals Smiling Face!

Vitamin D has some extremely positive effects on not only our body but our moods as well.

While it’s true that the sun is our best source of Vitamin D.

The long term effects of too much sun exposure can cause some obvious harm to the health of our skin and possibly causing skin cancer.  A great balance between the sun and vitamin D supplementation can have a profound effect on these three key areas:

  1. Your mood and mental health.  This explains why most people feel a little ‘down in the dumps’ here in Edmonton during the winter months.  The lack of Vitamin D we’re not getting from the sun has a strong impact on our moods.  (And we definitely see those mood swings here in our Edmonton Chiropractic Clinic!)
  2. Your bones.  That’s right.  Vitamin D has a direct impact on your bodies ability to absorb calcium.  The healthier the levels of Vitamin D in your body improve your bone density and lowers the risks for unwanted injury.
  3. Your risk of disease.  Meeting your daily requirements has a direct impact on your risk of Cancer, Diabetes and a laundry list of other diseases.  Something that only takes a few seconds of time can mean so much to your overall health.

Here’s a quick video Dr. Ly recorded for you about the benefits of Vitamin D and health risks of not getting enough:
