Daily Instructions

Please read these suggestions and follow them DAILY.

  • Follow the schedule of appointments that we have set up for you. There is no substitute for carefully timed chiropractic care. You need to complete the course to receive the full benefit
  • With regards to chiropractic care, try to avoid or limit physical and mental stress after each session. The more relaxed you are, the more benefit you will receive.
  • Follow faithfully all “home measures” prescribed for your condition. These may include such therapies as hot or cold appliances, daily exercise, rest periods or a special diet.
  • You spend approximately one third of your life in bed; it is very important that you sleep on a comfortable mattress.
  • Do not sleep on a foam rubber pillow (unless it is a chiropractic/posturepaedic approved orthopaedic style) or more than one pillow. If you do not have an orthopaedic pillow, a medium size feather pillow should be used to give the head and neck adequate support.
  • Do not read in bed either propped up on your elbow or flat on your back.
  • Sleep on your back or on your side, never on your stomach. It is best for your legs to be flexed at a 30 to 45 degree angle.
  • Choose a firm chair, not a soft, overstuffed one. Sit straight, and don’t cross your legs except at the ankles
  • Learn how to lift. Bend your knees and keep your back straight.
  • If any motion causes discomfort, avoid it and contact us if you are uncertain
  • Self-administered remedies may do more harm than good. Be certain on what you are administering. Always seek a health professionals advice.

Do your best to maintain a cheerful attitude. Avoid, if you can, stressful situations.
