And on this week’s show!

This week I invited chiropractor Dr Cody Hanish onto the show, a Sydney-based chiro that lets us all watch him adjust people on his Tik Tok and Insta – it’s strangely satisfying to watch, I admit! In today’s show, we discuss the musculoskeletal system and how it interacts with lymphatics and blood flow and look at repeat patterns of habit in posture and movement, the impact of tech devices, and what to do about it – as I type this I’m adjusting my posture and uncrossing my legs – I’ve discovered repeat patters of habit and I’m sure you will too after today’s show.

Questions I asked Cody:

  • What drew you to chiropractic as a profession?
  • Why do you feel chiropractic skirts on the edge of ‘alternative’ / taken less seriously in the traditional medical community/medical associations? 
  • What for you can chiropractic help people with that makes it unique/powerful? 
  • Can we talk about the relationship between the nervous system and pain manifestation? 
  • How important are blood flow and lymphatic movement to musculoskeletal health? 
  • Modern life has changed a lot. We’re sitting more than ever… now with hand-held devices in the mix the past 20 years especially the past 10, how is that affecting our musculoskeletal health? 
  • We go to the chiro, we get the thing fixed that we need to over a couple of sessions… what are the biggest factors in having a healthy body with the ease of movement (maybe we could talk about this in age/stage – so bubbas, kids, young adults, middle age and elderly? Obvs themes will overlap for an entire lifetime but tips around age/stage would be great) 
  • Strength and stretching – as important as general movement/posture/walking?
