Spring 2011

A message from Dr. Hasick

When I think of spring, I think of the flowers coming out, blossoms on the trees, the presence of birds, sunny days and warmer weather.

Although spring officially started March 21st, so far it has been nothing short of a challenge and disappointment. The amount of ice and snow we are still contending with has left many of us longing for sunnier days and for some, terrified of falling down.

In the past month I have seen a "more than average" number of patients who have fallen and hurt themselves. Some have had minor falls and others major head injuries from slipping on the ice. As we look forward to, "the real spring", I extend an extra caution to be mindful of the ice.

If you have had a fall recently, please call to get in and be checked to make sure that the alignment of your neck, head and spine are kept in a healthy balance. It is so important not to wait for symptoms to show up. Especially when you have had a recent fall.

It is my hope that our weather will continue to get warmer and the ice will soon disappear so that we can get around easily and enjoy greater mobility outside.

For those of you who might have fallen recently, when you do call, let us know that in fact you did fall. This is so we can get you properly scheduled and checked.

I look forward to seeing you, whether you have fallen or not, and wish you the warmest and sunniest of spring weather and good health throughout the year.

Tune in this Sunday April 10th at 10:00 p.m. (MT) on City TV to watch The Britannia Clinic's very own Dr. Jordan Ausmus and his wife Robyn (AKA The Blue Team) battle it out against another couple (The Yellow Team) to design and build the best house on the block on the reality show "My Rona Home".

The show will air every Sunday for the next 10 weeks. Working with their experts, they will design, construct and decorate a brand new home in just 10 weeks. Every make or break challenge is a race against the clock as they get no more than 30 hours to radically transform empty rooms.

With each grueling challenge, the competition intensifies as the families struggle to out-build, out design and out-decorate one another. At stake is the home they've always dreamed of loaded with furniture, appliances and electronics.

Who deserves to win is up to YOU! Every day viewers can vote on the BLUE TEAM's hard work and the results will be revealed in a spectacular season finale.

Please help Dr. Ausmus and his family to win their dream home by watching and voting for the BLUE TEAM on this season of My RONA Home!

Thank-you for your support!

A message from Dr. Hunter:

As many of you know, this past year has been a major change for me personally, with the steep learning curve of a new child in my life. I have experienced first-hand the challenge of attending to multiple and important priorities in life. Maintaining a "balance" in life can often be very difficult, and through it all, certain areas can start to take a "back seat".

Choosing to take time to get outside and enjoy a stroll or a bike ride during the bloom of early spring can serve as a great reminder of the importance of the "simple things" that we can do to nourish our health on a daily basis. These simple moments to slow down and be present to the day can have a profound benefit to your physical, mental and emotional health.

Now that I have a little one at home, I am reminded of the importance of spending quality family time together. As the new growth of this spring starts to show, I hope you have some time to be mindful of one of our most precious assets in life; your family and friends and the value of nurturing these relationships with your presence.

So, as you start to get more active outside, remember to call the office and schedule a time to get in to have your spine and body balance checked. Being aligned and balanced is helpful to reduce the risk of unnecessary body stress or injury as you become more active. We want you to make the most of the coming months!

I am very grateful to have the opportunity to help you maintain a healthy balance. After all, the little things do matter and it often starts with your health. We are all here to help you on this ongoing journey we call LIFE!
