We think YOUR BRAIN IS AMAZING!
The way we can all pick up a delicious cup of coffee (or tea or turmeric latte or orange mocha frappuccino), bring it perfectly up to our lips and take a sip, then gently place the cup back down. How cleverly our bodies are calibrated so we don't accidently throw our cup up in the air so its hits the roof - That would be ridiculous right? Not to mention frustrating.
The beauty is in WHY we lift that cup just right.
We don't even think about it.
This is a simple example of our bodies and brains CONSTANTLY working together to create movement and function ALL DAY LONG.
Other examples are bending and lifting at work, sitting at a desk holding your head up to the screen, holding and feeding your baby, simply walking when you're pregnant, kids trying to balance on the gutter, going from sitting to standing.
We barely even notice that we are doing these things - we just do them, we just get on with it.
Sometimes these simple tasks can become uncomfortable. This can be due to a range of reasons. These reasons may include the development of a repetitive strain injury, spinal joint irritation (for example a spinal facet syndrome), migraine headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, shoulder or knee pain and the list goes on.
Your spinal function impacts your brain function - meaning if your spine is not working optimally, your brain may have trouble working optimally too.
Research is showing that Chiropractic adjustments can change how your brain processes information. Chiropractic adjustments may change brain function.
Research results are demonstrating that a chiropractic adjustment may create better muscle control (increased strength in the legs), better pelvic floor control and clearer sense of joint position of the arms and legs.

Lets be honest - pregnancy is not as glorious and lovely as everyone likes to make it out to be. Exciting - yes. Uncomfortable and at times totally deplorable - also yes. It is true that some aches and pains in pregnancy are normal... but some are not.
Chiropractic research is showing that a spinal adjustment may help relax the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy.
Here at The Caring Collective we honour the personal choices of women and their partners regarding all their birthing and parenting options.
Exercise has so many benefits - its UNREAL and you are UNREAL for GETTING IT DONE. So kudos to you! How annoying is it when you're committed, you're showing up, you're doing the hard yards... then you acquire an injury! Ugh! Were you aware that chiropractic has been demonstrated to decrease fatigue, improve how well your brain coordinates your muscles AND may actually improve muscle strength? Here at The Caring Collective we love exercisers - you are impressive! Lets keep you exercising.
As the partner of a scaffolder I (Bec) see just how demanding trades can be on the body. A regular standard day of work can leave you with numerous aches and pains. Let alone any repetitive strain or carrying injuries that just seem to accumulate. Here at The Caring Collective we understand that work may be hard, but it still needs to get done. Let's work together to reduce these aches and pains. Lets help your brain coordinate your body so you can keep doing what needs to be done.
Firstly - you've had a baby... YOU'RE AMAZING! Whatever your birth story may be, here at Sandell Chiropractic we honour YOU!
Dr Bec is also a trained Doula (pregnancy, birth and postpartum support person) and has been involved first hand with the demands of being a new mum! She has witnessed the toll it can take on the body physically.
Chiropractic has been shown to help promote posture and reduce muscle tension. This may be useful as you adopt a forward leaning posture over your baby.
