Chiropractic Treatment Can Activate Core Muscles

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the core is “a central and often foundational part.”
When referring to the body’s core, we mean the muscle group that includes all of the muscles that are located in your torso that keep the body stable and balanced – some of the most important muscles of the body. Your core acts as a stabilizer and force transfer center for the entire body. Symptoms of a weak core include poor posture and lower back pain.
Several recent studies have documented that improved activation of core muscles occurs following chiropractic spinal manipulation. The adjustment of the spine activates spinal muscles which lead to improved core strength. Combining this with exercises stabilizes your core.
At Thorburn Chiropractic, we are skilled at identifying and manipulating the activation of core muscles. This combined with some simple exercises we will give you can greatly improve core strength and stabilization.
Stronger core muscles give support to the back and can lead to less pain and more overall body strength and vitality. Many of our everyday activities depend upon core muscles – from on-the-job tasks, housework and gardening to sports and other athletic pursuits.
Want to start 2015 with a stronger core? Schedule an appointment and we’ll get started!
Until next time…
Yours in health,

Who Says Santa Isn’t Alive and Well in Burbank?

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. T:
At Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we’re celebrating Christmas by supporting the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program and the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas program. You can feel great by helping others this holiday season!
The spirit of giving is the very essence of the season and there are always people in need who will appreciate the kindness of receiving. I encourage everyone to think of others during this special time.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of families in need through the support of donors. Thorburn Chiropractic has angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents available to their patients. Contributors take one or more tags and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
Unwrapped toys for children are also being collected by Thorburn Chiropractic for a Christmas party for over 200 children of farm workers through the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas program.
This is the 15th year that Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center has supported charitable holiday giving.
Please decide which program you will be supporting as the deadline for dropping off toys for the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas program is Tuesday, December 16. The deadline for turning in Angel Tree gifts is Friday, December 19.
Thank you, and from everyone at Thorburn Chiropractic, have a very happy holiday season!
Until next time…
Yours in health,
