SIT HEALTHY ONLINE COURSE
How long do you spend sitting?
How long do you spend sitting at your desk during the day? Now add on the time you spend relaxing in front of the TV on the sofa in the evenings and perhaps the commute in the car or train on the way to and from work…More than 5 hours?
You’re probably sitting for much longer than you realise and have been doing so for many years.
We regularly see patients in our practice suffering with lower back pain and one of the main causes is prolonged sitting. Our bodies weren’t designed to sit for multiple hours a day and be immobile. We also know it is not easy to avoid being immobile if you work in an office.
Wouldn’t you love to put an end to those aches and pains and feel safe in the knowledge that you can be at your desk at work and still be healthy? Carefully crafted from our own research, the exercises we give to our practice members and our experience in practice, “Sit Well” is your solution to guilt-free, healthy sitting.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your first visit to the practice will consist of an initial chiropractic consultation and, if appropriate, a full examination. One of our trained clinic assistants will greet you at the reception desk and ask that you complete your health history details. One of our Technical Assistants will come to greet you and escort you to the consultation room where they will take some scans to measure the function of your nervous system.
Your Chiropractor will then meet you and go through your health history and carry out your spinal health exam.
Following your consultation we will provide a full and thorough spinal health examination. For this, we will ask you to wear a gown that allows us to conduct the examination professionally. Your examination will typically last up to 45 minutes and provides us with the information about your spinal health in order to complete a report for you. Sometimes there is a requirement to take a set of spinal x-rays. These are only taken when necessary, and provide us with more detailed information regarding the health of your spine. Our x-ray machine is very modern and is on site at the practice.
After your examination, the chiropractor will escort you back to reception to schedule your second visit with our clinic assistants. You are welcome to bring a chaperone with you to your examination.
Your second visit will be a group session which we call the Pre-Care consultation.
During this session, we will explain what to expect what the tests mean so that you can better understand your results and your options for care. This will then help to guide you towards what works best for your situation and health goals.
From our experience, we find that the more you understand about how to get the most out of your care, the faster you will see results which will save you both time and money.
After we study your health history and correlate our examination findings, we’ll provide you with a diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan. We call this the Report of Findings.
This is usually attended to on your third visit, which will take place as soon as possible after you have attended the Pre-Care consultation. This three-visit approach accomplishes several things:
In certain situations, and in the professional judgment of Dr. McCrossin, we sometimes make exceptions. It just depends on your unique situation.
On each adjustment visit please come to the reception and sign in. Take a seat and as soon as the Chiropractor is ready for you we will ask you to enter the adjusting area.
The adjustment itself takes place in the communal consulting area. This innovative approach is preferred by many regular clients as it is much less formal than traditional methods of treatment – many even take time after their adjustments to rest, relax and even chat to fellow patients in this calming space. Of course, if you prefer to be treated in private then we have private treatment rooms.
We always recommend that you help yourself to plenty of water and take a short walk after each adjustment.
Because N8 Health takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, we also offer sports massage, nutritional advice and Pilates.
If you think that you or a loved one is a good candidate for chiropractic care, contact N8 Health to arrange a thorough examination in our practice.
I first visited N8 Health in September 2002 with lots of aches and pains. Regular adjustments over time greatly helped and I still keep and use the handouts relating to exercises which were recommended for me that can be done at home / the gym.
The adjustments have meant that I have been able to keep pretty active over the years with running, cycling. walking / backpacking trips and general sport.
I now look upon my regular trips to the practice as an investment in my health. I would rather invest in my health than a pub. Prevention is easier than cure!
After having back surgery, I needed to get adjusted and I found out about Chiropractic care from my local gym. Since going to N8 Health, I have a better posture and I am better able to cope with stress.
I really value the care I receive from N8 Health as it helps with my overall well being. Had I known about Chiropractic sooner, I would never have had back surgery.
I now come to N8 Health on a regular basis to maintain my new level of wellbeing.
I was looking for a physio closer to home and someone from my children’s school recommended I came along to N8 Health. Since coming here, I now don’t need to take 12 painkillers every day. I generally feel well rather than unwell and I do not get many flare ups now. If I do, I know how to deal with them and have even started to exercise with yoga and eat better.
I would say to anyone to definitely try Chiropractic, to take everything on board – not just the adjustments but also the lifestyle information and help as a whole.
I now get care on a proactive basis as I want to carry on feeling well and also improve my overall health.
I started coming to N8 Health as I had learnt that having regular Chiropractic care could benefit the whole body as well as just the spine. I have since noticed an improvement in my health and I would highly recommend Chiropractic care as although it cannot always cure, it can certainly help.
I continue with care on a proactive basis because I want to continue to see the benefit in overall wellbeing with my health.
I started coming to N8 Health to help bring a more stable balance in my posture. Over the years I have had a great improvement in my balance and wellbeing and I would highly recommend Paul and his team.
I continue with my care on a regular basis to keep my body in a state of well being and for regular consultation with Dr Paul for anything that concerns me and for the great team that I have known over the many years I have been coming.
I met Paul at the London marathon a few years ago and I joined the practice to improve my running experience and to help with an injured hip. I was a keen runner having run 10 marathons and 1 ultra marathon.
Since getting regular care, I have had no more trouble with my hip or hamstrings and getting regular chiropractic care definitely prolonged my running career.
I would recommend Chiropractic care and share my experience with anyone. I do not run any more but I walk regularly and my regular adjustments help me to keep fit and ensure that my body is functioning well.
Paul undertook some tests and diagnosed me with Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD) In layman’s terms, the nerves in my jaw weren’t turning off at night due to the clenching and grinding on my jaw when I had been sleeping which was causing me to wake with these terrible headaches.
With regular adjustments, my headaches very quickly became a thing of the past. The treatment plan took me from a need of recovery stage through to the wellness stage. Paul and his entire team are absolutely fantastic. I cannot speak highly enough of them. I have been in the Wellness stage of treatment for some 10 years and my quality of life is really as good as it is going to get and that is as a direct result of N8 Health. I cannot even imagine what life would be like today had I not discovered this practice.
My first visit to N8 Health was a decade ago and I haven’t looked back since. Not only am I a practice member at N8 Health but throughout the past ten years I have worked closely with Dr Paul McCrossin teaching Pilates to many of the practice members. This method of exercise strengthens the deep postural muscles to support the spine and brings awareness of correct posture to carry into everyday life. This powerful combination of Chiropractic and Pilates builds a strong body to hold the adjustments.
I am very grateful for the care I have received at N8 Health and would recommend Paul and his team to anyone looking to achieve optimal health.
