Whole Body Vibration and Posture Correction Demonstration

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

Chiropractor in Vaughan Explains Benefits of Whole Body Vibration with Posture Corrective Exercises


subscribe button 2

Vaughan, ON―I want to show you this demonstration with my vibration plate. It’s the CT Vibro Platform from Circular Traction.

The purpose for the vibration plate is to produce a whole-body vibration, from toe to head from foot to head. Now the purpose for using it in my office, I do structural corrective care as a chiropractor. So what it does is it produces this whole body vibration effect and massive proprioception stimulation to the nervous system and brain.

What that means is that it’s producing a lot of mechanical sensory information to the brain because of these small vibrations that are going through your body. And when I put people on this, I’ll demonstrate in a moment, and I give them postural corrective exercises and while they’re on the plate vibrating, they’re brain is picking up a whole bunch of information quickly. And now it wants to try to maintain the body in a new position.

So basically it’s retraining posture very, very quickly, with a lot of information to the nervous system and back to the postural muscles.

So let me show you, this plate over here and I got to turn it on so you see what it looks like. So I flip the camera around. So here’s the platform of vibration plates. Before I show you how it works, this is very important and this list of contraindications is bigger than this, but it’s not for anyone that’s pregnant, has acute thrombosis, heart conditions, fresh wounds, artificial joints, body parts, spinal pathologies, diabetes, epilepsy, acute migraines, acute inflammatory conditions, pacemakers, tumors and there’s a whole other list of contraindications that I have as well. So this is the exclusion criteria. Not everyone goes on there.

When someone can go on, this is how it works. So there’s a switch here with different settings and as I turned it on it starts to vibrate. Let me show you now I will put a block on so you have a reference point.

The plate has different settings. This is the frequency in hertz, so anywhere up until the 20 hertz, setting 3, on this machine is good for muscular ligaments and joint relaxation that is the relaxation settings. Over here, settings four to six. This is the range where it starts to give you a whole-body vibration that’s been shown in research to have a maximum effect on health. So a 27 to 40 hertz is great for proprioceptive neuromuscular re-education, which is what I was telling you about earlier, postural correction. And then higher settings, not recommended for for everyone. This is good for soft tissue absorption of a force, very high setting. We’re not going to go into this setting here. So I’m going to set it to a 33.

Now I’m going to go on this and you get to see what I’m talking about. I’m going to stand on it. Right now I am standing on the vibration plate. My whole body is vibrating. You might not see it there. So what I do is I place this block behind my back over here, stop myself, put my head back and start working on my posture. Lots of information is going to the brain to reeducate that postural position. Relax and that can be that 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 times. It feels really, really relaxing as well. Hope you found that useful and I’ll catch you on the next video.

How My Nephews and I Avoided “Text Neck” for at Least One Day

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Vaughan Chiropractor Gives Public Awareness Announcement About Posture and “Text Neck”

Maple, ON – Yesterday I had the pleasure of taking my nephews out on what I call an Adventure Fun Day with Uncle Walter. We went on a nature walk, observed birds with our binoculars, connected with Mother Nature, and discovered abandoned farm ruins. That was in the morning. In the afternoon we played bowling. And, when we got home, we topped it off with some tree climbing.

These are the types of days I recall when I was a child; spending eight hours a day outdoors, only coming in for lunch and dinner.

Today, too many kids are spending their time indoors, sitting, playing with their handheld devices, like smartphones and tablets.

This problem today has been called “Text Neck”.

Text Neck is a term that describes the effect of constant, progressive flexion (bending forward) of the head and neck due to the excessive use of media devices like smartphones, tablets, and other handheld devices. Yes it can affect adults too but it’s has a more detrimental affect on youngsters because they are still growing and their spines are more flexible, therefore more susceptible to the early development of posture problems.

Bad posture, especially a forward head position, causes a tremendous amount of increased weight and pressure on the neck joints, muscles, and nerves. As well, it tensions the spinal cord, the main pipeline that feeds life from your brain to your body systems. This can lead to a whole array of health issues because the nervous system is the master system that controls all functions, healing, and repair in the body.

Children should be spending more time doing activities that require motion versus spending time sitting with an electronic device. Sitting has also been called the “new smoking” because a prolonged sedentary lifestyle has been linked to increase occurrence of heart disease, obesity, cancer, and other detrimental diseases.

The amazing thing about our Adventure Fun Day yesterday…not once did my nephews ask for their iPad.

The whole point here…one day of avoiding text next is not enough!

As a public awareness message, restrict your child’s use of handheld, electronic media devices to one to two hours A WEEK. Yes, A WEEK. And have them be more engaged in other activities that get’s their body and muscles in motion.
