A Trusted Regina Chiropractor shares some helpful information about Concussions

Chiropractor shares some helpful information about Concussions 

Lots of media about this issue with high-profile athletes having their careers jeopardized by concussions. However, you don’t have to be a famous football or hockey player to end up suffering the effects of a concussion.

What is a concussion? 

Simply, it is a traumatic brain injury that impairs brain function and commonly causes symptoms including, but not limited to, dizziness, nausea, cognitive impairment, headache, visual disturbances and balance problems.

Who is most at risk? 

Obviously participants in contact sports (martial arts, football, rugby, hockey, etc.), but other sports like soccer, baseball often see accidental contact lead to problems as well. Other traumas like car accidents and falls are also frequent causes of concussion. 


The majority of people will recover from their symptoms in a few weeks. However, this does not mean that they are fine. There is promising research in blood biomarkers for concussion injury and recovery which suggests that the healing process takes much longer than previously thought. This is why anyone experiencing concussion-like symptoms needs a thorough evaluation by professionals with substantial training in the field. “How many fingers do you see” is not adequate. These patients also require follow-up to ensure recovery of function, not just symptom reduction. 

In the case of a suspected concussion, players need to be removed from play until they can be properly evaluated. A quick sideline evaluation can be performed in less than 5 minutes and will test many of the parts of the brain commonly affected by these injuries. My preferred screening tool is the Vestibular/Oculomotor Screen (VOMS). It quickly tests the function of the inner ear and parts of the brain associated with eye movement. Other good tools include the Maddocks questions:

1) Where are we playing today?

2) What period/quarter/inning are we in?

3) What team did we play last game? Did we win/what was the score?

Depending on the sport/circumstance and patient age the questions may need to vary. But the injured person needs to be tested as to their knowledge of location, time/date, short-term and long-term memory function. 

In the case of loss of consciousness or severe symptoms (confusion, headache, dizziness), it is important for the injured person to be evaluated for the need for MRI or CT evaluation to rule out potentially life-threatening brain bleeds. This also applies to individuals who display increasing severity of symptoms (e.g.: headache keeps getting worse).  CT is usually the best test in the early stages

A Trusted Regina outdoor living expert shares a tip on what you need to plan before you purchase a hot tub.

Thinking about buying a Hot Tub? Here is a tip on what you need to plan before you purchase.

A hot tub is a big investment. You’ve made a smart choice to do some research before taking the plunge. There are several factors to consider when you are contemplating adding a JHot Tub to your backyard.

Having a detailed and organized plan is a great way to avoid stress, as is relaxing in your potential Jacuzzi® Hot Tub!


The first and most important factor to consider is what is affordable for you. This might be the deciding factor for various details of what you are looking for in a hot tub. For instance, a new JHot Tub might be more expensive than a used one. The more expensive a hot tub is, the more likely it is to be of greater quality, a newer model or is larger in size and accommodating to more people. It’s important to keep financing options in mind when choosing between a new and used Hot Tub. 

You will also need to factor in any costs for upkeep and maintenance. You will have to incorporate upkeep costs for your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub for as long as it is in use. You can inquire with one of our Jacuzzi® Hot Tub customer service reps about what kind of maintenance costs the hot tub you have your eye on might require on a regular basis. These costs include, but aren’t limited to, needs such as chemicals, filters, and replacement parts.

Other various costs to consider are accessories and warranties. Incorporating these financial factors is a crucial first step in your planning process.


Narrowing down possible Hot Tub options is a lot easier once you have a budget in mind. Now you are able to see what is offered in your price range. The more people you wish to accommodate in your hot tub, the bigger it needs to be. It’s important to know how much space you have available to fit a hot tub before picking the model. All factors work hand-in-hand with each other, so it is very important to know what you are looking for and what you have to work with.


Making a realistic pro and cons list may be an effective way for you to decide if a hot tub is a worthwhile investment for you and/or your family. Some pros to consider may include the year-round use it provides, health and relaxation benefits, less space and cost than a pool requires an easy relocation.


These examples are just food for thought but are still very important factors to consider when deciding if a hot tub is right for you. Needs and preferences vary between different people and families. If you are unsure of what might be best for you, one of our Jacuzzi® Hot Tub sales representatives would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

As a distributor of luxury hot tubs and spas complemented by a full line of hot tub accessories, they provide knowledgeable staff fully trained in the latest technology in this field.

A Trusted Regina Roofer Shares a Tip about how to achieve a balanced roof system.

One thing people should really focus on is that they have a balanced roof system.

A properly installed roof system with the proper underlayment's and venting will reduce the roof top snow removal burden year after year.

The snow melting on the roof outside ambient weather conditions is a problem between a lack of venting and a lack of insulation quality of the sort. With a lack of venting and air circulation or fresh air exchange.  You can see a very large amount of condensation that will actually drip in the interior of the house which can also make it look like it's a roof leak.

So snow removal is just masking the issues at hand and pushing them off till another time.

To really tackle the problem contractors need to start being more inquisitive in regards to the roof system. Hire a pro.

Things to do

1- Hire someone to do a roof inspection to make sure you have a properly balanced venting system. This system should be balanced with the proper vents at the top of the roof to exhaust Warm air, in addition, you do need some soffit vents or intake vents at the lower edge of the roof if none are present at the soffit area.

2- Make sure you have a good R value of insulation in the attic. And open soffit vents.

We have a good contractor that can top up the insulation in the attic with some nice blown in insulation.

Ideally, kids’ motivation would come from within (intrinsic motivation) but sometimes it takes some support to get them to that point, and the messages children get at home can play a huge role.

Here are 5 areas you can focus on to help your child:


Valuing education starts with making sure your child is present at school – only legitimate illness is a reason to be absent. Talk about school and ask about your child’s day. We use the “high and low” conversation starter around the dinner table, which really helps. When your child has an interest, help her research on the internet to learn more, and take educational trips – library, museum, etc.

Make time for learning outside of the classroom as well. Incorporating activities like reading into your child’s schedule doesn’t have to be hard – right now for our girls it’s “Bed at 7:30, lights out at 8”.  Also ensure your child has all the supplies that are needed at home to complete school work. I suggest keeping a caddy with all materials that can be moved from room to room.  Model reading and writing yourself, and call attention to real-life math you’re using in everyday life.


I never recommend cash for report card grades, or buying “stuff” to reward achievements, but there are other ways to condition your child to feel positive about her school accomplishments. Praise is best. Verbally reinforce not only final results, but efforts and improvements. I make sure to read nice notes from the teacher out loud to my husband (so the kids can hear) and sometimes we call Grandma and Grandpa to share, too.

Your attention and time are valuable commodities to your child. A visit to the park, movie night on the couch, or trip for hot chocolate or ice cream can be surprise celebrations after the fact (not offered as a bribe in advance). Make sure that TV/video games/social media time come after homework and chores are completed for the night.


It’s always important to speak respectfully about staff and school/classroom decisions when your children are in earshot. Show your child that you’re going to be involved in the school year by signing their agenda, and follow through by communicating regularly with the teacher throughout the year. Always follow-up with consequences at home when there is an issue at school.


Starting at a young age, model unpacking bag, setting out homework, etc., (this will make life easier for you, too!). Then expect your child to begin taking responsibility for the routine. Help your child develop daily/weekly to-do lists, in order to be ready for school and bed each day, and for older kids to manage assignments.

Gradually allow your child to have control over the completion of tasks. Allow some choice. Let little ones pick their own bedtime stories (yes, even if it’s the same one every night) and older kids can choose where in the house they want to complete homework.


You want your child to take in more positive messages about school than negative. If she’s struggling (academically or behaviorally) it may seem that every discussion about school is “bad”. Make an effort to give positive feedback. Enlist the teacher’s help for this, so you have material to use. One little boy in my class struggles with focus, and the mom and I have chatted about that a few times. She was thrilled (and so was her son) one day when I wrote a glowing message about his time on task.

If work truly seems too difficult or your child seems to have social concerns, speak to the teacher right away so action can be taken to make school the safe, happy and challenging place it should be.
