Tightness in the shoulders, when severe, can
greatly interfere with your quality of life. 'Stress"
is often blamed, but if this were the case
then everyone would have tight shoulders!
The truth is that muscles in the shoulders
(and the rest of the body) are just
slaves - they do what they are told by
the nerves that control them. When the
nerves that pass through the spine are
working normally, free of interference,
the muscles they control are relaxed,
only contracting when told to do so.
However, when bones of the spine become
misaligned, irritating the nerves, these
muscles tighten uncontrollably. Over time,
these muscles become damaged and
sore. Chiropractors work to restore
proper alignment and motion of
the spine so that nerve function
is restored. Thousands of people
every day find relief from their
shoulder tightness and regain
a sense of wellbeing from safe,
natural chiropractic care.

the road to
LOCAL musician Alice Plumb hopes to kick start her
music career after winning the Canberra heat of the
Telstra Road to Discovery program.
The 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Gungahlin
took to Stage 88 during Floriade on Sunday to
compete against five other music hopefuls.
Plumb overcame her nerves to sing White Liar --a
song by her favourite singer Miranda Lambert --
which she followed up with an original song called I
"I was so nervous, I could feel my stomach
curdling," she said.
"All of the others were lovely. The talent is
exceptional around here."
As part of her prize Plumb receives a new guitar
and the opportunity to take part in a three-day music
mentoring camp in Sydney. She will then compete in
the semi-final at the Sydney Telstra 500 V8 Supercars
event on December 3.
If successful she will compete in the final at next
year's Tamworth Country Music Festival for the
chance to win a trip to Nashville and a 12-month
The chance is a dream come-true for the young
musician, who works in a bakery by day.
Originally from Crookwell, Plumb is an avid lover
of country music and lists Catherine Britt, Kasey
Chambers and Dolly Parton among her idols.
She began singing when she was 12 years old and
first picked up the guitar when she was 17.
The aspiring country star believes appearing at the
Tamworth Country Music Festival could open up a
whole new world for her.
"It would mean so much more exposure for me,"
''I just need people to hear me.
"In Tamworth there's so many people there -- you
don't even know who's in the audience -- so it'd be
a really big thing for me."
Plumb says her fans won't have heard the last of
her if she doesn't make it through.
The songstress is concentrating on her song writing
and has plans to record her debut album later this
"I'll just keep gigging with my band," she said.
"It definitely won't end here if I don't make it
