Do you have an angry, crying baby? Craniopathy for babies at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend could help you

Here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend we treat patients of all ages. A lot of people, have been surprised by the number of babies, pregnant ladies and children that attend the clinic.

Arif, one of our chiropractors is a Fellow of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association and Member of the Royal College of Chiropractic Paediatric Faculty. Craniopathy for babies is also a specialty of Arif’s.

Giving birth can sometimes alter the shape of the baby’s head and can make breathing quite hard for the baby. By gently using hands and fingers to correct distortions and compressions to a baby’s cranium, spine and pelvis it is possible to alter the shape of the head, normalise neural function and restore a child to a peaceful, happy and healthy state. Improvements can be noticed in just a few days. Above all these are very safe procedures and highly preferable to medication.

Jack is only 10 weeks old and has only slept for 40 minutes at a time. When awake he cries with a high pitch and his mother describes him as ‘angry’.  After two treatments in 5 days he slept for 5 hours. He was in pain following a traumatic birth and a plate strain to his skull. We can only guess how bad his headache was. It is important to remember babies do feel pain and don’t need drugs to mask it. They need non-invasive effective treatment that treats the cause not the symptoms.

Cliffs has revitalized me – Seth’s story about Cliffs Chiropractor Southend

At Cliffs Chiropractor Southend, we see a lot of patients who are currently suffering from back pain and neck pain amongst other concerns.

This is a story about Seth. For quite a long time, Seth had been suffering badly from middle and lower back pain. The pain had gotten so bad that it was stopping Seth from sleeping, doing his job and even playing his favourite hobby, golf.

Over a period of time Seth’s back pain was getting much worse and becoming a lot more painful. It was causing him to wake up at night and he was also finding it difficult to breath at times. Most evenings Seth was finding it easier to sleep on the sofa than in his own bed.

Seth finally decided to pay Cliffs Chiropractor Southend a visit as he couldn’t take the pain any longer and has since found that his back pain has gotten a lot better. Seth says that it has revitalised him and is now getting the recommended 7 to 8 hours sleep a night and in his own bed!

Stay healthy and be sugar free – Cliffs Chiropractor Southend shares these tips

Recent studies have found that sugar is playing a massive part in the UK’s obesity problems. Sugar has lots of calories and has no nutritional value at all. With many of us consuming an alarming amount of it everyday, most of us don’t realise it’s hidden in many foods.

Consuming too much sugar can cause obesity and leads to many health problems such as diabetes and liver damage. Sugar can also affect your sleep, age your skin prematurely and affect your heart.

As lots of us are leading busy lives we end up eating processed foods and drink, as they are quick and simple to make. Here at our Chiropractor Southend we would like to share these tips on how to start eating a sugar free diet.

  •  Always check the label on foods. You should be looking for foods that have less than 5g per 100g of sugar. Also watch out for the words fructose, lactose and sucrose as they are all forms of sugar
  • Stop adding sugar to tea, coffee, and cereals. You can get plenty of healthy sugars from fruit and complex carbohydrates such as wholegrain pasta
  • Try to get as much exercise as you can, this will help burn off the sugar that you have consumed. 30 minutes is the recommended daily amount
  • Try to ditch processed and pre-packaged foods. Even lots of shop pasta sauces contain up to eight teaspoons of sugar. Make your own, it is healthier and quick and easy to do

If you follow these tips, you could be on your way to a healthier, sugar free diet in no time!

Helping to look after mothers this Mothers Day – Cliffs Chiropractor Southend shares these posture tips when looking after young children

At our Chiropractor Southend we know just how hard Mothers work, especially when trying to juggle work and looking after young children.

Picking up children and even playing with them, can cause quite a strain to your back. A recent study found that 61% of parents suffer from back pain with over 40% saying that it prevents them from playing with their child.

With Mothers Day just around the corner, here at Cliffs Chiropractor Southend we would like to give the gift of some posture tips and advice to all you mothers out there.

  •  When carrying your baby try to hold them as close as possible which helps your centre of gravity. Carriers or slings are a fantastic option
  • As your child gets older and grows, try to encourage them to do as much as possible for themselves as picking up a heavy child can be very difficult
  • When buying pushchairs look at ones that have adjustable height settings so it can be moved to suit your own height. When pushing a pram you should be able to walk upright with your spine straight
  • If you are playing with your child, get down to the child’s level instead of bending over
  • Try to avoid long periods of kneeling as this puts a lot of pressure on the knees
  • When picking up toys try to remember to bend your knees. Observe your child as young children often use the natural squatting position to pick things up

We hope that these tips will help and that you have quality back pain free – time with your children. Happy Mothers Day!

Sleep well this March. A leading Southend Chiropractor shares these tips and advice

Do you have difficulty falling asleep at night? You are not alone. Many people today are finding it harder and harder to fall asleep. Due to our busy and hectic lifestyles, with work and family commitments it makes it harder for us to relax and get those important eight hours.

Studies have found that a good and regular bedtime ritual will help you to wind down and prepare for bed. Most adults need between 7 and 9 hours sleep to be able to function well the next day. By working out what time you need to get up in the morning, you can then set a regular bedtime schedule.

Here at our Southend Chiropractor we would like to share this advice on how to relax before bedtime.

  •  Try not to watch TV, look at you computer, tablets or phones at least and hour before you’re due to go to bed. The light that emulates from them makes the brain active and restless
  • A warm bath can help you relax and unwind after a busy day
  • Try gentle exercises such as yoga to help stretch and relax muscles
  • Write any ‘To do’ lists to organise your thoughts and clear your mind of any distractions
  • Reading a book or listening to the radio can also help to relax you

Try these tips tonight and you too could be waking up tomorrow feeling bright and fresh for the day ahead.
