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!

Finally a Way to Treat Migraines and Headache Naturally Without the Use of Dangerous Drugs

Headaches 2Maple, ON─June is Migraine and Headache Awareness Month

Migraines and headaches of any type can be very debilitating for people who get them. In Canada, 59% of adults report suffering of some type of headache. 30% experience tension-type headaches and 17% suffer of migraine headaches. Whatever the headache type, people who get them tell me it can destroy their whole day. In some cases, the headache may even last for two or three days.

Tension type headaches can stem from postural problems, stress, and muscle tension in the neck and upper back.

Migraine headaches have been attributed to blood vessels that have become over dilated. These blood vessels are in the scalp and within the protective linings of the brain (called dura mater). This brain lining is very pain sensitive and any added pressure from the blood vessel dilation can trigger an intense migraine episode.

How to Prevent Arthritis with Chiropractic

Monday, May 30th, 2016

Chiropractor in Vaughan Sheds Light on Arthritis, the Main Cause, and How Chiropractic Helps with Prevention

Maple, ON—In conclusion of Restricted Mobility Awareness Month, I want to share with you an integral research study about arthritis.

Research has shown that a joint that has been immobilized (not moving well or has restricted joint mobility), it will begin to show irreversible degeneration (joint damage) within two (2) weeks.1

That’s right! Two (2) weeks.

How does this related to chiropractic?

A misalignment of the spine (vertebral subluxation) is a spinal joint that has restriction mobility. Which means that when spinal misalignments (subluxations) are not corrected immediately, that spinal joint will begin to have irreversible joint damage (degenerative joint disease).

How a Chiropractor in Vaughan Helps People with Arthritis and Restricted Mobility

Let me tell you about Mr. Mike, who is 68 years old and has trouble walking.

Mr. Mike comes into our office and tells me he has back pain, tingling in his right leg, and has trouble walking.

Here’s the kicker. He says, “My family doctor told me a year ago I have arthritis.”

I hear this so many times. Patients tell me often, “I already know I have arthritis.”

What Mr. Mike has is osteoarthritis, also called degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, which is a wear-and-tear type of arthritis.

Here’s my issue when people tell me they already know they have arthritis.

Arthritis is Not the Problem!

I’m not saying that arthritis does not cause pain, discomfort, lack of mobility, and suffering, because it does.

What I’m saying is this…Arthritis is an indication of an underlying problem that has already existed for at for at least the past 20 years.
