Sunny Chiropractic Evans Head Opening Easter Weekend

 

ADVERTORIAL

Sunny Chiropractic Evans Head opens this Easter Weekend to help people suffering with joint and body pain. Dr Amy Rayner is the Principal Chiropractor and owner and hopes to fill the gap in the community for leading edge Chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is a drug-free, hands-on treatment that includes Chiropractic Adjustments, targeted massage, rehabilitation exercises and home stretches.

After Easter, Dr Amy will be travelling from her home in Goondiwindi, Queensland every fortnight to treat patients on a Sunday and Monday.

“I realised when I came down on my regular visits to spend time with my parents, Ron and Liz who live here, that there were a lot of local people and visitors that were in Evans Head on the weekends. I also know that when you work all week, it’s difficult to find time to attend to your health. So I decided to open my doors every second Sunday 10am – 6pm and Monday 9am – 2pm.”

The clinic is located in the treatment room inside Hair and Beauty by the Beach which is in the main street of Evans Head.

We sat down with Dr Amy to ask a few questions.

What is a Chiropractic? Chiropractic is a drug-free, hands-on treatment that includes a  Chiropractic Adjustments, targeted massage, rehabilitation exercises and home stretches.

How does a Chiropractic Adjustment work? The Chiropractor uses their hands to apply a quick, safe and small movement to your joints and this results in reduced pain, easier movement of your body and stronger muscles.

What makes the cracking/ popping sound? Each joint in our body has a surrounding joint capsule that is filled with synovial fluid. Synovial fluid is as slippery as an ice-skate on ice and contains dissolved gas. When an Chiropractic Adjustment is applied to the joint it causes the gas to diffuse out of the capsule and this often makes a cracking or popping sound. This gas then diffuses back into the capsule. It is important to note that it is not that cracking that makes a good Chiropractic Adjustment, but the return to normal glide that give the pain relief.

What if you don’t like the cracking noise? That is ok, you are in charge of your treatment type, and we can do alternative methods such as mobilisations, which are a rhythmic stretching treatment or the use of an instrument such as an activator.

What issues do you treat? I can treat any painful joint in your neck, middle back and lower back and other joints in your arms and legs. I also treat headaches such as migraines and tension headaches.

Do I need an x-ray? Not necessarily and it is certainly not routine to do x-rays on every patient. If you have suffered a car accident at high speed or a sports injury for example, it may be indicated that you have x-ray or other advanced imaging. I can refer for medicare covered plain film x-ray for neck, middle back, low back and pelvis issues as well as DEXA scans for bone density issues or EOS imaging for scoliosis monitoring.

Do you offer any other treatments? Yes, I offer Dry Needling (like acupuncture), sports taping, pre-surgery rehabilitation and post surgery rehabilitation for joint replacement surgery.

Where did you study? I studied a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic)/ Bachelor Clinical Chiropractic (5 year degree) at Murdoch University, Perth Western Australia

Do you treat babies and children? I do not treat babies or Children under 5 years of age, but I can refer you to a Chiropractor that specialises in babies and children.

Do you treat pregnant women? Yes I can treat and support pregnant women throughout their pregnancy safely.

Beef Week Cook-Off at Whiddon Casino

Bringing the Spirit of Beef Week to Whiddon Casino: Residents vs. Chefs Cook-Off!

Whiddon, a regional aged care provider, is embracing the spirit of Casino Beef Week, a celebration of Australia’s beef industry and rural heritage, by hosting a unique culinary challenge at its Casino Residential Care home on Wednesday, May 22nd.
In this friendly competition, the skilled chefs of Whiddon will go head-to-head against the eager residents, who bring years of cooking experience to the table.
The Cook-Off will unfold at the Whiddon Casino BBQ area, where marquees will be set up for the event.
Schedule:
• 10:00 AM: Whiddon Casino Coffee Club
• 11:30 AM: BBQs prepared for Whiddon Casino Cook-Off
• 12:00 PM: Official commencement of the Whiddon Casino Cook-Off!
During and after the Cook-Off, both participating staff and residents will be available for media interviews and comments.
At Whiddon, chefs often craft special meals to mark significant events or simply to delight residents who have specific cravings. According to Whiddon Area Chef Jason Watterson, the outdated stereotypes about food in aged care are far from accurate.
“Our team is continuously exploring innovative ways to serve nutritious meals made from locally sourced, high-quality ingredients, freshly prepared at our care homes every day,” Jason explains.
He emphasizes the importance of relationship-based care, stating, “The bonds formed around the kitchen table are truly special.”
Recognizing the significance of food for residents transitioning into care, Whiddon has implemented several tailored practices and programs across its 23 Residential Aged Care homes. These include homestyle kitchens, foodie groups, and cooking clubs.
For the Cook-Off, Whiddon is committed to sourcing local produce, thereby supporting the Richmond Valley and Northern Rivers community.
