Stretching and Inspiration at Vermont race events

Free Pre- and Post-Race Stretching Events for 2017

We’re excited for the 2017 race season in Vermont! Runners are beginning their preparations for all the 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons and triathlons that are coming up in the area, and we’re preparing to once again offer pre- and post-race stretching to participants. It’s a great time to begin chiropractic care to help you move well and feel strong as you’re training, too.

We love being part of these races and supporting the organizations that set them up, particularly RaceVermont and Essex Junction Recreation and Parks. Not only are these races a lot of fun, they raise hundreds of dollars for important causes.Read More

Insight Millennium Thermal Scans for Pregnant Women, Infants & Small Children

Insight Millennium Thermal Scans for Pregnant Women, Infants & Small Children

How do you know if a pregnant woman, infant, or small child needs chiropractic care without taking spinal x-rays?

When a pregnant woman, infant, or small child comes to see us, one of our main tools is the Insight Millennium Thermal Scan to determine possible areas of nerve disturbance. It’s a great objective tool to help determine how healthy a patient’s spine is.

The Thermal Scan is exactly what it sounds like: a heat scan. It is a gentle way to measure temperature, which is part of the autonomic nervous system.

Race season is back again and we couldn’t be happier about it!

The snow has melted, the trees are beginning to grow their leaves, and the sun is warming up the pavement.

As Dr. Tilyr and I prepare for all of the 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and triathlons where we will be volunteering this summer, many men and women in the area are beginning to prepare for them, too. For many, it’s a great time to begin chiropractic care to help you move well and feel strong as you’re training.

One Quick and Easy Knee-To-Chest Stretch

One Quick & Easy Stretch

Ever feel overwhelmed when deciding which stretches to do each day?

That’s okay, you’re not alone! There are a bazillion (slight exaggeration…) to choose from.

The most important thing to remember is try a bunch out and to be consistent with those you find to be the most beneficial for your body.
One of the most common muscle groups to need stretching are the gluteus muscles. They are so important to stretch (and strengthen) because they connect throughout the pelvis and are directly affected by a sedentary lifestyle.

Massage Therapy at Summit Chiropractic Center

Massage Therapy Has Arrived!

Thinking about getting a massage?

Now you can at Summit Chiropractic!

(I know, I know. That sounded a tad like a cheesy infomercial…)

But it’s true! We are proud to announce the newest member of our team, in conjunction with Rod Cain Massage Therapy: massage therapist, Dawn Goode.

Massage therapy and chiropractic care are a powerful team. In a nutshell, chiropractic care works toward balancing structural problems within the spine while massage therapy works towards releasing muscular tension and stress within the body.

But that explanation is actually oversimplified!

Although most known as a relaxation technique, massage therapy has also been shown reduce pain, stress, nausea, depression, distress, anxiety, and fatigue. Furthermore, it can improve athletic performance or be used as a tool for general health maintenance.

How cool is that?
