Welcome our new Holistic Nutritionist

PAVLINA CAVOJSKA, CNP

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce a new addition to our SpineWise family  – Pavlina Cavojska.

Pavlina is a Holistic Nutritionist that specializes in weight loss. She is the founder of the Metabolic Reboot System! where she teaches people to combine food, fitness and mindset to become a fat burning machine without giving up their favorite wine, popcorn or chocolate.

Pavlina’s program is focusing on providing personalized approach that teaches people to combine the right foods  to eliminate cravings, balance their blood sugar levels and start burning stored fat without feeling hungry or spending insane hours in the gym.

If you are feeling frustrated, because you are doing your best : eating healthy and getting exercise whenever you can, but it does not seem to matter – the number on the scale just isn’t going down or you keep gaining weight and have no idea why –  let me tell you something – It is  not you.

It is not your lack of commitment or willpower.

It’s the “healthy” food that you are eating and time wasted on the wrong type of exercise.

 After working with dozens of people who were desperately trying to lose weight, this is what I know about you:

  • you do your best to eat lightly. You know the more you eat the bigger you get. But you are really hungry and just don’t have the willpower to be good day in day out. Especially by about 9pm.
  • You have wasted money on gym memberships, spending what feels like hours on the damn elliptical. It just make you tired & hungry.
  • You actually hold your breath every time you zip up a pair of pants you haven’t worn in a bit and say a silent prayer that they will do up.
  • you just feel really uncomfortable in your own skin – if you look too closely you don’t recognize yourself, so you avoid mirrors. You also avoid changing in front of everyone else, no matter how non judgemental they are.
  • I know how draining it is to spend your life “hiding” in baggy clothes, because I did that for way too long. I spent a small fortune on new clothes convinced if I just found the right outfit my problems would disappear. It didn’t work.

If you are in the place where you feel that nothing will work for you, you  don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity to meet Pavlina and find out more information about the METABOLIC REBOOT SYSTEM

Custom Foot Orthotics and Footwear

Custom foot orthotics are both clinically and scientifically proven to be an effective solution for treating heel, arch, knee, hip, back and neck pain – superior to wearing over-the-counter, generic shoe inserts or heel pads. The reason is because custom foot orthotics are made from a UNIQUE MOLD of your foot, which provides unsurpassed arch and heel support. This takes pressure off the foot and evenly distributes your weight as you walk.

Custom foot orthotics re-instate critical balance and increase the biomechanical effectiveness of the ankle joint, providing stability to the entire skeletal system.

In addition, custom foot orthotics provide a safe and non-invasive treatment option for individuals who do not wish to take medication in order to treat foot, heel, knee, hip, and back pain.

Great for helping all sorts of foot pain including plantar fasciitis!

Anatomy 101

Anatomy 101

The spine is one of the most important parts our body. It has three main functions:

  • Protects the spinal cord
  • Gives the body structure and support
  • Allows us to move freely

The Bones and Joints

The spine is made of 33 bones called vertebra that are stacked one above each other. There are:

  • 7 cervical vertebra in the neck
  • 12 thoracic vertebra in the middle back
  • 5 lumbar vertebra in the low back.

The sacrum is a wedged shaped bone in the pelvis made of 5 fused vertebra. The tail end of the spine (literally) we have the coccyx made of 4 fused coccygeal vertebra. The vertebra are given names based on their position in the spine. L1 is the first lumbar vertebra. There are 2 bones that have special names because of their special function. The atlas (C1) holds up the head and the axis allows the head to rotate from side to side.

Here you can see 2 vertebra stacked on top of the other. 3 joints join the vertebra to each other. The large disc in the front is like a soft cushion and provides support and absorbs pressure. The disc has a poor blood supply and receives its nutrition via sucking the nutrients from the body when you move. Behind the disc there are 2 facet joints. The facet joints guide the movement of the vertebra and have a large supply of nerves that feed your brain with information about where your spine is and how it is moving. Your brain uses this information when it is deciding how your organs should function. Some amazing research by Dr. Akio Sato has been done in this field. This is why is it is so important to maintain the normal movement of your spine. Between the facet joints and the disc is a gap called the intervertebral foramen or the IVF for short. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through the IVF. There are a number of bumps on each vertebra. You can see the transverse and spinouts processes in the picture. The muscles and ligaments of the spine attach to these bumps.

The Ligaments

There are a number of ligaments that cross between two vertebra. The ligaments hold the bones together while still allowing the joints to move. Some of the ligaments cross the intervetebral foramen and reduce the space the spinal nerves have to exit the spinal canal. When there is joint restriction the ligaments can rub twist and squash the nerves reducing their ability to carry healthy information from the brain to the body or the body back to the brain. With age and lack of exercise the ligaments become shorter and harder, making the joints stiffer. In the long term tight and stiff ligaments pull on the bones and produce bone spurs. Exercise and adjustments to maximize the health of the ligaments will minimize the effects of osteoarthritis in the future.

The Muscles

here are multiple layers of muscles in the back. Some are for supporting our spine and are called postural muscles or core muscles others are for moving our spine and are called the prime movers. The muscles are arranged in different patterns to bend our spine forwards backwards, sideways and rotate to each side. Like all muscles of the body the spinal muscles require good exercise and stretching to maintain their health and the health of your spine.

The Nerves

The spinal cord is the information superhighway between your brain and your body. Without it you could not move any part of your body and your organs could not function. It is made of millions of nerves. The spinal cord is protected by the bony spinal canal formed by the vertebra that are stacked one on top of the other. It is also protected by the duramater, a tough covering around the cord. Between the duramater and the spinal cord is the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) The CSF is important for protection of the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and the spinal cord and feeds the CNS with nutrients from the blood.

The Peripheral Nerves

The spinal nerves convey information between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through each of the intervertebral foramen between each pair of vertebra. Like the tributaries of a river the small spinal nerves form larger nerves, such as the sciatic nerve, which runs down the buttock into the leg. This is how your brain controls every single cell and organ in you body. The following chart describes which spinal nerves innervate (supply) which parts of the body. You will notice that all the body parts actually receive information from more than one spinal nerve and the nerves travel a great distance to get to the organ they are supplying. This is why the actual problem in the spinal can be a long way away from you feeling the problem.

Invest in yourself

Want to Understand Chiropractic?

Then be aware of these 7 principles:

Your body is under the control of the brain and nervous system as long as you are alive.

Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord is protected by the spinal column.

Spinal bones move out of normal alignment and interrupt your normal nerve flow.

This disruption of normal nerve flow is referred to as a vertebral subluxation.

It is vital to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur.

Chiropractors find subluxations, and by preforming a spinal adjustment, facilitate a return of normal nerve supply.

Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you!
