The 5 Most Destructive Postures From Using Personal Electronic Devices Such As Smart Phones, Laptops, Tablets And Video Games

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Dr. Walter Salubro, Chiropractor In Maple (Vaughan) Gives A Chiropractic Perspective On Overuse Of Electronic Media Devices And Posture Problems 

It’s a modern, fast-paced age of technology and social media and the overuse of using handheld devices has skyrocketed. It seems that people of all ages, from infants to seniors are now using portable media players and handheld electronic devices.

If you find yourself in any of these positions when using your personal electronic device, you are putting undue strain, stress and pressure on the muscles, discs and nerves of your spinal column.

It may lead to a kink in your neck or tightness in your shoulders today, but in 10 to 20 years, it can lead to degenerative arthritic changes, chronic spinal misalignments and decades of stress on your nervous system (the master control system of your body).

Chronic, repetitive overuse of handheld electronic devices in bad postural positions as shown above can lead to an array of pains and discomforts, like muscle strains, neck pain, back pain and headaches. As well, over many years and decades, it can lead to spinal degenerative arthritis.

Now is the time to change your habits when using these devices. And now is the time to teach your children better postural habits when using such devices. 

Be smart. Think about your future health and well-being today. We all use these devices on a daily basis as they have the infiltrated our modern social living. Start today to be mindful of your body positions and posture when using handheld electronic devices. Better choices today for better living tomorrow.

5 Stress Relief Tips For The Holidays

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Chiropractor in Vaughan gives advice for conquering stress during the holiday season.

Stressed At Work 5 Stress Relief Tips For The HolidaysMaple, ON – Stress seems to be an ongoing problem for many people throughout the year. However, when it comes to the Christmas and holiday season, it feels like the stress builds up by 10 times. The holiday season is meant to be a festive time to enjoy with family and friends. Make this year’s holiday season more festive, more cheerful and less stressful with these five stress relief tips.

5 Stress Relief Tips For The Holidays

1. Get good quality sleep. People are more concerned about the amount of hours they sleep (quantity) versus the quality of sleep. Although you want to get a good 8 hours sleep a night, it’s way more important to be sure you sleep through your entire sleep cycles. Planning your bedtime and wakeup time around the natural sleep cycle will help your body rest better at night and recurperate from a stressfull day. The average human sleep cycle is 90 minutes. You go through several sleep cycles a night. So, if you complete 5 sleep cycles, that means you slept for 7.5 hours (7 hours and 30 minutes). If you complete 4 sleep cycles, that means you slept for 6 hours. People that have followed this tip have told me that they woke up feeling more refreshed and more rested in the morning. These numbers are used here as an illustration. It may be different for you. The key is to find out what your average sleep cycle is and plan your bedtime and wake up time such that you wake up at the end of you last sleep cycle.
