Do you remember your first…kiss, your first driving lesson…?
My very first chiropractic patient was a 97-year-old lady! She walked in with her walking stick and left the clinic without one! Her treatment consisted of constant joint mobilisations and gentle adjustments.
As the year went on, she decided to withdraw from her physical activity, which was lawn bowls. I asked “why?”, she paused…then quietly replied, “everyone is younger than me now”. Sadly her friends at lawn bowls had passed away and she didn’t want to continue her active pursuit. Consequently, her stability and strength slowly declined as well. Sustaining an active lifestyle is one of the many factors that affect the biopsychosocial model (i.e. biological, psychological, and social factors) in the process of healing and preservation of health. At that point, I wanted to do something…however, I didn’t know how.
Then in November 2013, an idea of encouraging an active lifestyle within the community was established!
