Put your best foot forward and Just Start Walking this National Chiropractic Care Week

Just Start WalkingChiropractors around the country will be using the month of May to help patients and the community to put their best foot forward and start walking their way to health and wellbeing.

National Chiropractic Care Week 2011 marks the launch of Just Start Walking, a new health initiative that highlights the importance of posture and mobility on our overall health and wellbeing.

It’s no surprise that in modern times we have become much more mobile through portable technology, but physically we are much less active.

Yet our human body is designed for movement, so to keep your spine at its best we need to stay active. After all, an active spine is a healthy spine and a healthy spine leads to a healthier life.

The good news is we can do something about it. We can Just Start Walking. Why walk? Well it’s simple, inexpensive, easy and achievable.

Your overall health can be affected by the health of your spine so use National Chiropractic Care Week to make an appointment with our clinic to assess your spinal health and discuss how you can start walking your way to wellbeing.

To get in tune with your body, contact Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic for an appointment today.

You can also visit the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s new website at and download the mobile phone app to help get you on the front foot to health and wellbeing!

Nutrition Forum – 7 June * date change *

The first of Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic’s health forums, the Women’s Health Forum held in October last year, was a huge success. Dr’s Paije Cox and Tania Kent hosted a well-attended event discussing general health issues concerning women and women’s health, with most of those present learning a thing or two about what goes onto and into their bodies!

Feedback from the event was extremely positive, and we’re happy to announce the next in the forum series: the Nutrition Forum, covering issues such as:

  • what really is the best “diet”?
  • what are the so-called super-foods?
  • how does nutrition impact our health?

The Nutrition Forum will be held at Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic on the evening of Tuesday 7 June* from 7:30pm-8:30pm.

If you are interested in attending, please phone the clinic on 8332 4567 or email [email protected] and leave your details with our wonderful CAs.

Dr Paije Cox joins the Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic team

We’re thrilled to welcome a new chiropractor to VPCC: Dr Paije Cox.

Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Paije Cox moved to Melbourne to study Chiropractic at RMIT University for five years. Like many students Paije came home during her summer holidays and supplemented her income by working in restaurants and cellar doors in the Barossa Valley. Working in these wineries benefitted Paije by increasing her passion for cooking good food and drinking good wine.

While in her fifth year Paije was one of three students chosen from her year level to travel to Cambodia to treat children in orphanages, land mine victims, and people with polio as well has having the opportunity to perform humanitarian duties whilst there. This, along with paediatric clinic duty, ignited Paije’s keen interest in treating children and pregnant women.

Since graduating Paije has been working in Melrose Park and volunteering as a trainer at Lobethal Football Club. Her hobbies include singing, playing piano, working out at the gym, and painting. She now lives in Magill with her partner Tom and her pet lorikeet Hercules.

Farewell to Dr David Coppi

Dr David Coppi has headed off overseas for some well-deserved R&R, and when he returns he will be pursuing other interests elsewhere.

Dr Coppi has been a wonderful team member and we thank him for his years of effort, concern and care. He will be missed, and we wish him all the very best for the future as he embarks on the next phase of his professional life.

Check out your posture during National Chiropractic Care Week, May 24 to 30

This year’s National Chiropractic Care Week theme asks: Which posture are you? Chiropractors at Victoria Park Chiropractic Clinic will be using the month of May to help patients, old and new, review their posture and identify the posture profile that most matches theirs.

Are you a multi-tasking mum, office worker, active retiree or even an active kid?

Each of these common lifestyles brings with them a range of potentially punishing postures, such as slouching, hunching or twisting, which can take their toll on your spine.

In fact, up to 90 per cent of people have poor posture, which puts extra pressure on the spine and can lead to tension, soreness, headaches, back pain and fatigue. The good news is that many postural issues can be corrected and sometimes even reversed.

Use National Chiropractic Care Week (May 24 to 30) as a prompt to get in tune with your body and make an appointment for a posture assessment, advice and exercises to help you make the most of your posture.

You can also visit the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s new website – – for the low down on common postural problems, including self assessment tools and information on how chiropractic care works to help people maintain a health spine for a healthier life.
