Dusyk & Barlow  - COVID-19 continued service plan for the health and safety of staff and customers

Dear Dusyk & Barlow clients

We have been working diligently to develop plans for our offices in preparation for the potential impacts of COVID-19.  We are constantly referencing and utilizing the information available from World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada to create and update these plans as needed.

Using the information currently available, we have implemented various staff safety protocols including:

  • requirements that employees remain at home if they or an immediate member of their household are not feeling well and have symptoms of an illness, until the symptoms have passed. 

  • those experiencing flu-like symptoms, are required to consult a doctor or call the health line to seek medical care/advice.  

  • Staff who are in positions that allow remote work will be able to do so if they find themselves in a quarantine situation that allows for such an option. We are working to ensure we are properly set-up for work from home options.  

  • we have implemented a ban on business travel and are encouraging staff to change out of office appointments of more than 10 people, even here in the city, to telephone appointments.

We have ramped up daily office cleaning routines including regularly wiping down and sanitizing workspace and counter areas. 

We encourage both our employees and clients to maintain good health practices including: 

  • washing hands properly and regularly; 

  • using hand sanitizer whenever possible; 

  • maintaining a healthy lifestyle (ex. proper diet, sleep and exercise) to help keep the immune system strong; 

  • respecting social distances when appropriate (ex. 2 meter distance; respect choice to not shake hands).

Although we prefer to deal with our clients face-to-face, we are in a business where most of our services can still be effectively provided in a socially distanced fashion such as via telephone or email.  As such, we ask that our clients observe the same protocols we are asking of our staff. For the good of all in the community, we ask that clients please remain home if they, or anyone they have been in close contact with, are experiencing any symptoms listed above.  If those experiencing symptoms do require our services, rest assured we will do so via telephone, email or fax.

We want to protect the health and well-being of our employees and clients and, if need be, will amend plans accordingly by continuing to monitor recommendations through the noted health agencies.

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

Trusted Regina weightloss and healthy lifestyle partner share a tip on your Vision

Focus on what you can do to change your life as you see fit.

A Vision statement  can help keep you on your path

There are always reasons that people want to lose weight and it is never to just look good.  It is for health, get back that sense of control, gain confidence or even just have a better quality of life.  You have to figure out why it is important to you.  The number on the scale should honestly not be important.  We need to get past how that number defines us as people and as our accomplishments.

There are always reasons that people want to lose weight and it is never to just look good.  It is for health, get back that sense of control, gain confidence or even just have a better quality of life.  You have to figure out why it is important to you.  The number on the scale should honestly not be important.  We need to get past how that number defines us as people and as our accomplishments.

If you are like everyone else you believe that losing weight will make life easier for you and then you can really live it like you always wanted to.  We know that is not true.  We need to do it for a solid reason of why. And the “why” will be different for each person.  It could be to help fix medical problems or prevent them.  Trying to live longer to see the grandchildren grow.  Have more strength and ability to do activities.  It could be just the confidence to walk into a crowded room and when people turn to look at you, you don’t want to scream “don’t look at me”, you want scream “you think this side looks good you should take at look at this.”  as you spin in circles.

But whatever your reasons to be losing weight they have to be yours!  There is one thing that will help you achieve that goal, it is the small goals to get there but the main goal has to be kept in your sights.  Keeping your motivation long term it is hard but the end results are always worth it.

People always lose sight of the final goal.  We are always so worried about what is on the scale and the drama of the ups and downs.  When you focus on that, you start stressing about it and it makes you an emotional mess.  Hello to emotional eating.

We always believe that you need to lose weight before you can do anything else.  When you reach your goal weight you being lighter doesn’t solve the problems or the situations that you thought your weight loss would “cure”.  Which then makes us go back to our old ways.  If you think that this will be solution to all your problems, think again. If you don’t change your ways and stop worrying about how much weight you have lost on your weigh in days.  You lose the reason of why you started on this journey.

Something I recommend is to set up a Vision Statement.  Your statement should tell you WHY you want to lose weight.  And WHY your efforts to succeed is worth it.  It can have general elements (feeling good about yourself), but the big picture should be more specific.    You can do this if you ask yourself questions like:
What would my “perfect” day look like. Explain everything in that day, from the time you get up, to what happens during the day, to going to sleep.  Have what you will eat, who you will spend the day with.  You should even put down how you will handle any speed bumps that you may have in your daily life. 

What are my personal morals/values,(family, interest, career, success, strength, friendships, giving to others, etc.) What do I want my life to show? You should rank these morals/values  as if you had to choose between them at any given moment.
What do I want my life to look like in 1-5 years? You need to explain what you want to be doing, the kind of things you want to take on, how you want to see yourself, etc.

This vision statement can help keep you on your path.  It should have Inspiration and Direction on how to get there.  These questions are just to get you thinking.  Your vision can include your beliefs and a question of “Why is losing weight is so important in my life goals?”.

Your vision statement should tell you what else needs to change within yourself and your life to get you to where you want to be.  And I am talking besides your weight!!  And don’t be surprised that your statement will take on a new direction as you start to change.  I am not telling you to get down on the way things are now.  Focus on what you can do to change your life as you see fit. 

Be kind to Yourself!!

We strive to help you change unhealthy eating habits, identify triggers for over-eating, educate you regarding the best way to eat right and support your new lifestyle changes. We ensure that YOUR journey to weightloss is a happy and healthy one by celebrating every step of the way.

Ideas to help you succeed this summer on your journey to weight loss

Here are some ideas to help you succeed this summer:

Turn off the electronics 

If you focus on what you are in eating you will have better success. 

Studies have shown that people who eat watching TV or playing video games have no idea if they were satisfied with the food they just ate.

Drink Smart

After a long hot day, it’s really is easy to down a few frozen margaritas.  As we all know that is a lot of calories.  If you really want a drink try a vodka and soda.  

When a drink doesn’t take like a Slurpee you are more likely to drink it slower so you are taking in fewer calories.

Have A Good Sleep

Studies have shown that if you sleep less you lose less fat and generally feel more hungry.

Eat Spicy Foods

Studies have also shown that eating spicy foods help speed up your metabolism.  Things like chili peppers.  They also say that spicy foods can help trigger the feeling of full in comparison to bland foods.

Plan Your Meals Ahead Of Time

If you plan your meals you are more likely to stick to your diet to help you reach your goals.

Flaunt What You Got

When it is getting warmer out show more skin.  When you wear loose fitting clothes you are more likely to eat more

Stay Motivated

It is so easy to forget to eat healthy, working out and the reason why you started on this journey.  You need to always remind yourself why you are doing this.

Drink Coffee

Studies show that caffeine speeds up metabolism.  Just remember that is coffee without sugary syrups.

Hope that you found this helpful.
