October 2021 – news Home
This month we’d like to talk about the pelvis and how it affects our entire physical structure. It is the centre point of the body, the axis or pivot from which everything else moves. It balances the distribution of weight as we participate in daily activities and protects some of our most vital organs, such as the internal reproductive organs, particularly relevant to women and pregnancy.
Problems caused by a lack of pelvic motion can result in lower back, hip and leg pain and can even affect your jaw. If you sit for work a lot, make sure you stand and move about frequently.
Estelle and Jo have both completed extra training to work with the pelvic ligaments and structure in pregnant women. We recommend anyone who is experiencing any of these problems to book an appointment as soon as possible. While you are here, we will recommend some specific exercises that are relevant to pelvic function.

After yet another pause at the practice, as the devil incarnate (err, Covid) appeared, Estelle transformed herself into a demon slayer then returned promptly to work. She couldn’t be happier to be out and about.
As mentioned last month, Charlotte Melnis has now joined the team as an assistant to us all, but especially we chiropractors who will rely on her to keep us organised. You can read more about her career background here.

Here’s another foodie minor-miracle courtesy of Jan Ware! This recipe is super quick so perfect for those evenings when you haven’t much time.
Honey and Lime Salmon parcels
Preheat the oven to 200ºc/gas mark 7.
Sit a piece of salmon onto a square of foil, big enough to wrap it up. Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, the soy sauce and garlic then drizzle over some honey. Wrap in the foil to seal it. Repeat with the second fillet. Pop in preheated oven for 15 minutes on a baking tray.
