Dr Notley’s February 2012 Newsletter

I hope you have all enjoyed January.  Winnipeg has been absolutely beautiful. It was so unseasonably warm that it felt like spring rather than winter.

I would like to remind you of two things about this month.  Valentine’s Day is on the 14th just in case you haven’t bought your special someone something and February is Heart Month.  Valentine’s Day is meant to show the one we love that they have our heart and Heart Month is to remind use that we need to love our heart. We need to take care of it by staying active, reducing stress, and with healthy eating.

Enjoy the Newsletter.

My Volunteer Experience: Frostfit Games at Crossfit Winnipeg

Chiropractic at the Super Bowl
from Chiropractic Economics
As the New England Patriots and New York Giants prepare to play on the biggest stage of all for football fans -Super Bowl XLVI – the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP) points to the role of the team Doctors of Chiropractic in optimizing functionality, endurance and overall conditioning.

I’d also like to point out that these Chiropractors also use the technique that I perform on my patients and athletes, Active Release Techniques.  Click here to learn more

Back Care: McKenzie Extensions


One of the most troubling conditions, for my lower back pain patients, is when they experience symptoms down their leg (commonly known as sciatic).  One of the reasons for this is a result of irritation to the nerve root at the spine.  A possible reason for this is due to a herniated disc bulging out against the nerve root.

Knee Stability Audit
By Dr Brad Cole
Your knee is the trash can of your lower extremity.  It collects all the garbage of poor stability and starts causing pain.  It is painful during or after activity because of improper use.  While poor movement drives inflammation and pain, proper movement is like massage for our joints.
Do you have knee pain? are your knees stable? Check this out
Have a great month!
Dr Notley
