Our February meeting was very enjoyable and informative. Edmund Rogers, BSC MChiro MMCA a chiropractic was there, along with his wife, to instruct us and demonstrate how we should or should not treat our bodies. He brought along a plastic spine and abdomen and explained how chiropractic techniques can help muscular skeletal pain especially of the back.
With the help of his wife, he demonstrated how posture and sleeping positions affect the abdomen in particular. He also demonstrated some very simple exercises to do at home. His talk was interspersed with lots of questions from the members, one of whom asked about the side effects of her spinal condition. She was asked if he might examine her to which she agreed. Using her as a “dummy” he then showed the audience how one condition can have repercussions.
Edmund was more than happy to answer all our questions and when the evening was over we all felt we were much wiser and knowledgeable about our bodies. Long may we continue with the exercises.
