Do you regularly make time for well earned rest and recovery? You should.
Rest is when the vast majority of our body’s healing and repair occurs.
Many think sleep is mentally checking out for the day, but it’s when our body activates a complicated process of tissue growth and repair.
Muscles relax, blood pressure and heart rate drop and important hormones are released and balanced.
Further more, our brain files all the learning and experiences from that day into our long-term memory.
Recovery time is when we give our bodies and minds a break from the often repetitive activities that we regularly endure.
Allowing time for our bodies and minds to do something different can help us to balance physical asymmetry caused in our body through our repetitive work patterns, break bad habits, see life with fresh perspective and restore our energy and enthusiasm.
Annie Crick has been a chiropractor in the Bayside area for more than 20 years.
She is now a relief chiropractor and has been invited to provide rest and recovery time for chiropractors at Victoria Point Chiropractic.
A relief chiropractor is one who chooses to care for the clients of other chiropractors during their absence.
Their aim is to offer a treatment service as close as possible to that you would experience with your usual chiropractor.
From time to time Annie may also provide transitionary care, prior to the availability of a new chiropractor.
