Chiropractic Care for Low Back Pain
Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation - Stuart McGill

 

Canadians of all ages are suffering from low back pain, with back pain being the single largest cause of disability worldwide. As a chiropractor in Ottawa, I see patients dealing with low back pain regularly. 

 

While the book "Low Back Disorders" is now somewhat dated, the information contained is still relevant to evidence-based practice. It informs us on some simple exercises to help increase spinal stability in those with low back pain, and also some exercises and positions to avoid.

 

Exercise prescription is a key component to multi-modal treatment of low back pain, which the evidence clearly showing that exercise is particularly effective in those with chronic low back pain.

 

In addition, the book helps us understand some of the biomechanical risk factors for disc injury, which helps to guide activity modification in those who are suffering from disc related low back pain. Activity modification is another key component of treatment for patients experience back pain.

 

Working within a large fitness facility, we often recommend this book for personal trainers to better understand the biomechanics of the lumbar spine and back pain.

After the Fall (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again) - Dan Santat,Dan Santat

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This is an absolutely beautiful book. I picked this up at the library because I am obsessed with fairy tale and nursery rhyme retellings. This is by far one of the best ones I have read. I loved the simplicity of the story, but the complex mental struggle Humpty Dumpty goes through.

This is a book about facing your fears. It is about literally getting back up on the wall after you have fallen down. I really enjoyed the ending. After reading some other reviews, it looks like some people were confused about the ending. My interpretation is

 

SPOILER ALERT!

 

that he was able to face his fears so he "hatched" into a bird (the thing he idolized throughout the book). This may have been a metaphorical transformation or a literal one, either way it is beautiful and wonderful and I just love the message. If I squint, I guess I can see how some people may have interpreted it as a bird running into him and knocking him off of the wall again. But before the transformation (or the collision if you will) you can see the shell start to break and feathers come in. Seems pretty obvious that he is hatching into a bird.END SPOILER

Anyway, gorgeous book. I loved the contrast of light and dark in the illustrations. Beautiful pictures. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to all of my fellow nursery rhyme lovers.

AVR Weekly News ~ 263rd Edition

The one with Hurricane Michael.

No power for 27 hrs. Which I know is not so bad considering what others have been and are going through. However, I love my electricity. I would survive the apocalypse but I wouldn't like it.

True Historical Horror
But You Did Not Come Back: A Memoir - Marceline Loridan-Ivens,Sandra Smith,Judith Perrignon
Marceline, was taken to a camp with her father when she was just 16. She writes of her nightmare, her community, her country, her family, but mostly the effect of losing her father and his dreams in such a way. Her painful memories that never diminished, while everyone kept telling her to just forget. Those who did not walk in her skin could never fully understand their bond and the cost of the break.
This is her story a feel of what being in her skin felt like during and after the war. Her life was forever altered and never safe and free. The story is beautiful, her words direct and full of heartbreak. I finished it still wishing he might come home. This war left few happy ever after stories. I will never forget her
