Love the message here! Your imaging is not your story.

Being told that you have joint degeneration or joint changes happening is extremely common, and can be well managed with exercise, education, and other aspects of conservative care!

As always, these posts are for educational purposes and do not take the place of personalized advice from a healthcare practitioner.

It's #WellnessWednesday and the start of a mini series on physical activity during pregnancy!

The tips in this series are based on published guidelines from 2019. Direct links can be found on the most recent blog post on our website! (Link in bio)

So... Who should be physically active during pregnancy? Almost everyone!! If you're unsure where to start it's a great idea to talk to your primary pregnancy provider, such as your midwife or doctor, and also a health or fitness professional such as your chiropractor.

What's your favourite way to move? Let us know below!!

We are looking for an RMT to join our team!

Bruce Village Chiropractic is located in Port Elgin, a small town on the shores of beautiful Lake Huron. It is a wonderful town with shopping, eating, and natural amenities with all the conveniences of city living but the community that comes in a small town. Despite the challenges of the last year, many patients are looking for massage therapy but currently unable to find a practitioner in town. That's where I'm hoping you come in!

Our space is a quiet four room, fully accessible clinic with administration area, washroom, mini kitchen, nearby lot and street parking (both free). The space is shared by Bruce Village Chiropractic and Growing Brain Connections.

One room (approximate dimensions 10'6" by 12') is available for immediate full-time use. Features of the room include protected outlets, in-floor heating, and both overhead and wall-mounted dimmable lighting.

Rent and split options are both available and negotiable.

Other benefits of the clinic:
- located on the main road in town
- option to use Jane software for scheduling, online booking, and electronic health records
- work days and hours negotiable, set by you
- other negotiable options: administration, social media and advertising

For more information, please reach out. I'm happy to answer any questions!

Have you or has someone you know experienced back or pelvic pain?

For Pelvic Pain Awareness Month we're looking at how different groups experience pelvic pain.

Things to know about pelvic pain and pregnancy:
1. It is COMMON. 76% (three quarters!) of a sample of pregnant women in Ontario experienced back or pelvic pain at some point during their pregnancy.
2. Back pain tends to improve and pelvic pain tends to resolve after birth.
3. Just because pain often resolves with birth does not mean that those experiencing pain during pregnancy should not have relief. Or, that was a lot of double negatives to say - your pain matters. There is help available to you.
4. Not everyone experiences relief from back or pelvic pain after birth. In these cases an assessment from a healthcare provider is a great place to start.

If you are experiencing pelvic pain, please reach out.

Hey all! The Period Purse Saugeen Shores is a great idea and incredibly important for people who menstruate. It's being organized locally by a fantastic healthcare provider. I love the work they're doing. If you are able please consider learning more and helping out!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for liking and following this page. Later today I’ll be doing a live about some great books that help women/girls/menstruating people learn more about their anatomy & periods.

For now, I just wanted to show you one example of a period kit. This one is created with disposable products. In this kit is a pair of new underwear and enough pads & tampons for 1 cycle.

Once our product & donation blitz is over, we’ll be assembling these kits and making sure they get to the people that need them.

If you have any questions, please message us anytime.

This week's Pelvic Talk Tuesday is a different kind of pelvic talk.

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. I want to say I see you. I know what is posted here is not easy for everyone to see and is not welcome on everyone's feed. I am still working to learn and to give space to a diverse set of experiences.

So this week - let's learn about infertility.

Four things you can do today:
1. Be aware - infertility affects 1 in 6 Canadians.
2. Learn language and etiquette
3. Diversify your feed
4. Read about infertility experiences

How well do you know your booty? 🍑

Welcome to a new series on everyone's (everyone's?) favourite muscle group: the glutes! We use our glutes or gluteal muscles during many every day activities such as walking, running, standing up from a chair, and lifting.

Your gluteus maximus is the largest and strongest of the group. It's responsible for extension at the hip - check out the images to see some activities involving hip extension.

So how well do you activate your gluteus maximus? Try this:
1. Locate your glute max - it makes the bulk of the muscle in your buttocks.
2. Can you activate it on cue?
3. Stand up!
4. Did you use your glute max, or did you use the front of your thighs?
5. Have another seat. And this time...
6. When you stand up lift from the top of your head, and try not to lean or swing your upper body forwards.

And try this every time you get up! Your 🍑 will thank you.

Questions? Send us a message, or book online. brucevillage.janeapp.com.

The weather has been amazing and I've seen some gardeners taking advantage of our early season sun!!

Gardening is a common source of aggravation for aches and pains, but it doesn't have to be.

Here are some quick tips to implement next time you work in the garden:
🌿 use knee pads or a rolled towel under your knees when you're kneeling in front of garden beds. This helps to provide some protection and cushioning so you can work more comfortably.
🌿 take a break to move your neck, back, shoulders, and hips through their entire range when you've been in one position for more than a couple minutes.
🌿 speak with a professional if you start experiencing aches and pains - a huge part of our job is education and advice!! (And this is one of my favourite parts of my job too.)

What are your favourite gardening tips? Leave 'em below!

Safe and happy gardening - I look forward to scrolling through your gorgeous gardens 😊
