On The Go Osteo

Evaluation: We work with you to help you improve your lifestyle. We have a detailed patient intake form and sit down to speak with you about any issues you have concerning why you have taken the appointment. We have a discussion about your goals and general health. Following the discussion, we will go through a postural assessment, functional assessment, explanations and observations and speak about our treatment strategy. Treatment: During the treatment, the practitioner will explain what we are finding and always maintain a high level of communication to ensure the patient’s comfort. You will be asked to wear lose fitting clothing in order to aid the practitioner with proper movements. In the case of long lasting chronic pain, you recognize that what has been there for years, will not disappear in one or two steps. You are ready to do follow-ups with our practitioners (emails or text messages) in order to constantly improve and refine your treatment plan so you are fully successful in your recovery. Progression Plan: After your session, you may be asked to schedule a follow up treatment. You will also be asked to communicate with the practitioner two-three days following your treatment. At this point you can ask questions. The practitioner will also be giving you a home program to aid your recovery. You will also have a specific training plan in order to maintain and keep improving. This plan will evolve as you progress. Private trainers are available through On The Go Osteo, who can assist in your progression.

I always take a few hours on the weekend to reflect and observe.

.

What do I mean by this?

.

This weekend I joined a friend for a drink at a rooftop bar.

.

We were placed in the middle of two families. The first to our left was a Spanish group of three generations. The eldest was a 94 year old women!

.

To our right was a group of 14 ladies celebrating a 54th birthday. All of them from Syria, knowing each other for over 20 years.

.

One of the ladies from the birthday party requested a special song that came on, and the group of 14 ladies got up and started dancing. We were asked to join in - obviously we did! But was happened next was so touching.

.

Not speaking the same language, one of the ladies from the birthday group saw the 94 year old grandmother dancing to the beat in her chair. She kindly went over and helped her up and started dancing with her.

.

She danced for 2 minutes and sat down.

.

The laughter, smiles and fun. It was truly adorable.

.

Why am I telling you this story and what can you take away from it:

.

How often are we caught up in our day that we miss the kind gestures of others?

.

How often are we focused on making the money, making a deadline - that we forget to laugh and have fun?

.

How often do we judge someone else because we aren't happy with our lives?

.

Now I want you to take home this perspective. What are your expectations? Not of everyone else - because that is something you cannot control. But of yourself?

.

If your expectations are constantly negative, no one will ask you to get up and dance.

.

But if they are positive, everyone will want to dance with you!

.

Check in with your internal language:

.

"I'll always have this pain," - "I always get injured," - "My Dad has this issue, so of course I have it..."

.

Be solution centric. How can I solve this? Who can help me best to understand? ...

.

The body has the ability to heal itself. You have to choose to put yourself in the environment to allow it to heal.

.

.

Big hugs - Ann

.

.

P.S. If your internal language is negative, you feel stuck or overwhelmed - reach out to me. Happy to help.

Your girls Alix & Constance went furniture shopping, today!!

What did we get??

.....

Alix got a new mattress : the firmer the better for a back sleeper!

Constance got a new night stand for a neatly organized bed side.

.....

Did you know that your bedroom environment is super important for a good night sleep? Here are some helpful tips for your bedroom :

- Minimalism. The bedroom should be a calm environment with little distractions or disturbances.
- Feng Shui teaches us about energy in a room. It needs to flow, there are different rules that may apply, but generally keeping the area as free as possible for movement should do it
- Darkness! Lights will mess with your circadian rhythm (says I, typing this on my phone just before bed is quite the bad example 😅...)

We're actually learning a little about Feng Shui while redecorating Constance's apartment. Ask us what we learned in your next appointment!

C&A ✌️🌱

Don’t we all have battle scars? Here’s a beautiful photo of my knee - nicknamed ‘the zipper!’

.

This is a result of overdoing it in the mind and body. Yes it’s that simple.

.

.

If you have lingering injuries that you think are ‘normal’ - it is actually your body sending you a message to make a change.

.

I want to come back to that word we all learned in Grade 6 science.

.

Homeostasis.

.

When your body sits in an equilibrium state. Balanced.

.

.

This means mind and body - because they are certainly connected.

.

.

Have you ever left an appointment feeling, calm, clear, relaxed and pain free?

.

This is an Osteopaths main goal of your appointment. To aid the body in getting back into a homeostatic state to promote healing.

.

Does it happen on the first appointment? Not all the time. If you have been imbalanced for years - it can be very tricky to 'un-do' in a 60 minute session.

.

How do you get into homeostasis during your days? It often feels effortless, easy and in flow....

Hope you are all enjoying your beautiful sunny Sunday!

Big hugs - Ann

My daily - do for myself - list

This daily list is my ride or die! (so dramatic)

Why??

Because it has helped me and so many others!

Consistency is what I struggled with and I wanted something that was effortless and did not feel like a chore!

These three things help me remain calm, sane and help with my overall health!

I’ll share mine below and drop me a comment on what yours are!

• Planning my day ahead – agenda or journal form – I am super visual!
• 1 hour of walking per day
• 1 hour of unplugging – no electronics – I like reading!

Have a great Wednesday Everyone!

I highly
recommend…

“Extremely friendly and helpful! Really appreciated the work she did on me to fix my hips! Highly recommend. Super convenient for anyone in the downtown core.”
— S. D’Urbano

I learned a great
deal…

“I was told by my cousin to go see an osteo. A day after searching on google, I got to see her after some scheduling adjustments. Speaking of her, from first impression, she’s great. You can sense the passion she has for her field and helping her patients. I learned a great deal from my visit. Looking forward to my next visit to see how where I’m at physically and to get more advice and knowledge from her.”
—E. Baluyot

Wonderful
service….

” I’ve had 3 sessions with Cheryl. She was really professional and super nice. She has demonstrated professionalism on several occasions with follow-ups.
Thank you again for this wonderful service. It’s a nice experience.”
