Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

 

Canada is the World’s second largest consumer of opioid drugs (per capita).

1.6 million prescriptions of opioids were dispensed in Canada in 2016, up 60% from 2011.

410,000 Canadians report abusing drugs like opioids pain relievers.

2458 people died of opioid overdose in Canada, 2016.

Chronic pain is one of the main reasons why people are taking opioids.

There must be another solution to dealing with chronic pain.

And that is Chiropractic.

Chiropractic helps many, many people who suffer with chronic pain, naturally without drugs.

Chiropractic is safe.

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to increase the release of endorphins, which naturally occur in the body.

Chiropractic is not addictive.

Chiropractic saves lives.

If you have chronic pain, visit a chiropractor near you.

Chiropractor in Vaughan, Dr. Walter Salubro, Explains Important Exercise for Rehabbing the Lower Back

Hey! It’s Dr. Walter Salubro here from Back to Health Chiropractic Centre, Chiropractor in Vaughan, and the author of Back to Health by Choice: How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress & Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

 And today, I want to give you a tip on how to strengthen the low back. So follow me. Check this out.

Now, in this video, I’m not only going to show you an exercise that helps to strengthen your low back but this particular exercise also help improve muscle activation, muscle firing patterns in the thigh area, buttock area and lower back region.

And that’s important because one of the most common elements that I see in our patients that have low back pain is that their muscle firing sequences in their thigh, glutes and lower back region is disrupted. It’s out of balance. And that can cause further muscle problems, further back pain, and also delay the healing process.

So this exercise is very important to help strengthen the low back, rehabilitate it, improve the coordination and the muscle activation. Thereby, decreasing the stress, tension, pain, inflammation on low back while making it stronger.

3 Best Sciatica Stretches for Ultimate Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

Chiropractor in Vaughan Shares Do-It-Yourself Ways to Relieve Pain from Sciatica

Vaughan, ONLeg pain. Sciatica. Sciatic nerve pain.

If you suffer from leg pain or sciatic nerve pain, pay attention to this video, I’m going to give some tips on how to relieve pain from sciatica or leg pain.

My name is Dr. Walter Salubro from Back to Health Chiropractic Centre, Chiropractor in Vaughan, and the author of Back to Health by Choice: How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress & Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

So where does the sciatic nerve come from?

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 1Well, here’s a model of the low back, the lumbar spine, and the spinal cord sits on the inside of the spinal canal. And, interesting enough, in the low back, the actual spinal cord stops right about here, about L1, L2, and then continues on as a bunch of nerves, and these nerves come off from the sides.

These are the lumbar spinal nerves and then it also goes down to the sacral region. These are the sacral nerves. The lower lumbar, low back nerves, and the sacral nerves form a big nerve called the sciatica, which emerges out of the muscles of the buttock area, goes down at the back of the leg, into the calf, all the way down to the foot.

So here’s a spinal nerve chart to demonstrate that. Here’s the lumbar spine. You see all the nerves that branch off from the lumbar spine and also the sacral region fit into the big sciatic nerve. No wonder it’s so painful when it’s irritated or inflamed because this big nerve has a lot of nerve endings—very, very painful when it’s irritated and the nerve travels down to the back of the leg, to the thigh, branches out  all the way into the foot. So leg pain can be thigh pain in the back of the thigh, behind the knee, or also in the calf, and also in the foot. Sometimes it causes tingling sensation, numbing, also shooting pain down the leg or dull, aching, pain.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 6So what I want to do today is give you some tips on how to stretch out the region of the low back and gluteal areas that could irritate and inflame sciatic nerve causing leg pain and sciatic nerve pain. And, by doing these stretches, it will give you some very, very effective relief in that area. So follow me and let’s go to these stretches.

Alright. Here we go.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 2Let’s start with stretch number 1. This is called the knee to chest stretch. Bend one knee. Hold it with your hands towards your chest. Hold that for 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times. With all these stretches, you want to hold it for 10 seconds and repeat it 3 times. Do the same to the opposite side. You get a nice stretch in the gluteal region and in the muscles surrounding the sciatic nerve, which can trigger sciatic nerve pain when inflamed or spasmed. Also a good stretch for the low back as well.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 3A variation of this stretch is a double knee to chest stretch. Take both hands, pull the knees towards your stretch. Get a very good stretch in the lower back region where the sciatic nerve originates from and also in the gluteal region where the sciatic nerve is as well. Very, very good stretch to relieve back pain and leg pain.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 4Stretch number 2 is called an angled knee to chest stretch just like here that you see. Take your knee, pull it towards your chest just like before but you are going to angle it to the opposite shoulder, get a nice stretch in that hip on the lateral side in the gluteal region where the sciatic nerve comes out. Very, very effective.

Now if you have pain with any of these stretches, you need to ease up a bit. Never stretch into any pain range.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 5Stretch number 3 is very, very effective for sciatic nerve. It’s called the piriformis muscle stretch. Take one leg, put it in a figure four position. Pull your hands through your thighs. Pull the thighs to you as you’re stretching the opposite side of where your hands are—a great stretch for the piriformis muscle, which is a trigger for sciatic nerve when it’s spasmed.

There you have it. There’s some very effective, easy to do stretches to give you relief for sciatica or leg pain. Give them a try. They’re very, very effective.

How To Prevent Text Neck With One Simple Household Hack

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Chiropractor in Vaughan Shows How To Prevent Text Neck From Using Tablets, Smart Phones, and Handheld Devices. Especially Great for Kids and Teenagers 

Vaughan, ON—Here’s a quick tip that will save you from neck strain, next pain, and future health problems while using an iPad, smart phone or any other handheld device. It’s not just important for you, but also for your children and teenagers.

Often times I’ll see the kids come into our office and they’ll be holding an iPad or smart phone, or some other handheld device. And they’re sitting staring at their handheld device with their neck completely bent down into their device.

What is the problem with this?

ipad 1

The problem is that there’s too much bending that can cause major strain and stress on muscles, spinal tissues, bones, discs, and nerves. The strain and stress will pose a problem, not just now, but also in the future. This can cause a lot of tension on the nervous system and lead other health problems.

 

How to Prevent Text Next While Using An iPad, Smart Phone, or Other Handheld Devices

What I recommend is to teach your children to do this. If they’re sitting at the sofa with their iPad or handheld ipad 2
device, grab a couple of sofa pillows, have them stack the pillows on their lap. Then have them place their elbows on the pillows while holding the iPad or handheld device. It will now be closer to eye level. Now they can use your iPad, smart phone, or handheld device with their elbows propped up holding the device at eye level instead of having their neck being completely bent forward or flexed down, which is not good.

This will prevent this constant bending of the neck. Because it brings the iPad device or handheld device up higher closer to their eye level. It’s a very quick and easy hack that you can do at home. It’s not expensive.

And very easy to do. Another thing you can do is grab an iPad holder or an iPad stand if you’re using an iPad and place it on the stacked the pillows on the thighs. This will keep hands and elbows free if they get tired holding the iPad. If more height is needed for the iPad stand then stack one or two more pillows on the laps so you can hold the iPad stand higher close to eye level.ipad 3

Be sure to try it. Teach your children and teenagers. If you found this tip useful share it with a friend or family member, someone that you know could use this and find value in it. And also enjoyed this video, like the video, share it, and leave a comment if you have any questions.

Chiropractic May Be a Practical Form of Care for Patients with Fibromyalgia

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Chiropractor in Vaughan Discusses How Chiropractic May Be a Viable Treatment Option for Patients with Fibromyalgia

Vaughan, ON—According to a 2014 Canadian Community Health Survey by Statistics Canada, 519,146 (1.7%) of Canadians aged 12 and over have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia.1

Fibromyalgia is a condition that is characterized by generalized body pain and an abnormal heightened sensitivity to pain.2 It is also associated with sleep disturbances, memory issues, fatigue, and depression.3  

 There is no known cause for fibromyalgia. And currently, there are no lab tests or diagnostic imaging studies that can diagnosis fibromyalgia either.

Often times patients who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia are prescribed pain reliever like Tylenol or Advil. In some cases, antidepressants or anti-seizure drugs may be prescribed. 3

Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia

For anyone who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chiropractic care should be considered as a viable “treatment” option. I used the word “treatment” loosely here because chiropractic is not about treating any specific condition, such as fibromyalgia. However, many patients with fibromyalgia that I have seen in my office have responded extremely well from chiropractic care. In many of these cases, chiropractic care was their last resort, after medications and other therapies like massage, acupuncture, and physiotherapy.

Chiropractor in Vaughan Tells How Living with Headaches is Not “Normal

I don’t get angry, usually.

However…

There are two things that I hear that just infuriate me. First, let me tell you about Jane.

I met Jane at one of our community outreach events and she tells me she has had headaches since she was 13 years old.

Her age today is 43. That’s 30 years of suffering with headaches. THIRTY YEARS!

That alone is enough to intrigue me and ask…”Jane, what have you done for your headaches?”

Jane replied, “Well, I have been taking four Advil’s a day for years.”

I said, “I understand, but you still have headaches after all these years.”

And Jane then said something that totally angered me…

She said, “I went to the doctor and the doctor said my headaches are normal and that I have to learn to live with them.”

UGH!
