The Olympic Torch Visits North London on July 25th


The Olympic Torch visits our North London neighbourhoods and ends up in Alexandra Palace close to Muswell Hill on July 25.
With the Olympics just around the corner, the Olympic Torch is due to make its way from Finchley, in the Borough of Barnet, to Alexandra Palace, near Muswell Hill on July 25.
People in different boroughs will dress in different colours while the torch travels through their area – and in Haringey the colour is white.

The Torch will pass through some well-known local areas around Muswell Hill Chiropractic Clinic including Finchley, Frien Barnet, Southgate, Palmers Green, Winchmore Hill, Edmonton, Tottenham,  Wood Green and Crouch End before winding its way through to Alexandra Palace.

  • When sunbathing stand up and move around every twenty to thirty minutes; just stretch and shake out your limbs, to allow your muscles to relax. Using something like the Straighten Up UK (see below) exercises would be ideal. You can combine this with fresh applications of sun cream or taking a drink of water.
  • If sunbathing and catching up with the latest book club read, try not to lie on your tummy, with your back and neck arched back. Put the reading matter on the floor, so that you can view it over the edge of the sun bed with your head and neck in a more neutral position.

Don’t let the daily grind wear you down

Hundreds and thousands of us do it each week, whether by train, car, bus, motorbike, cycle or foot and the daily commute can not only be an unwelcome source of stress but can also take its toll on our backs. According to consumer research by the British Chiropractic Association, almost a third of the working nation relies on public transport and the journey is not short of stress with 50% left fighting for seats and only occasionally or rarely sitting down.

- The British Chiropractic Association looks into what is weighing men down -

The man bag has been growing in popularity since the rise of the metrosexual male made famous by the likes of footballers like David Beckham, model David Gandy, or movie stars like Robert Downey Jr and Hugh Jackman.

As much as they are a functional fashion accessory, these bags could be doing harm to your back and shoulders, as men load them up with life’s daily essentials – from phones to books and computers.
