Practicing self-care isn’t always easy. Most of us are busy, have stressful jobs, or are too consumed with technology to make time for ourselves, but self-care is actually an important part of keeping our bodies strong and less prone to injury and disease. In this episode, Stephenie Farrell and Karen Hong are joined by Dr. Alan Chong, also known as The Spine Coach. Dr. Chong has been a practicing chiropractor for over 33 years and is the Owner and Director of the Centre for Chiropractic Care and Clinical Director and Principle of the Calgary Spinal Decompression Centre. His living legacy is the launch of his new podcast, Practice Mastery for Chiropractors. Listeners hear Dr. Chong’s advice for improving posture and strengthening immunity. He also shares his personal self-care regimen, explains why he believes chiropractic treatment is the most misunderstood profession and asserts the importance of viewing health as a continuum with certain points of no return.
