Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Dr. Walter Salubro Of Back To Health Chiropractic Centre Reviews New Study Showing That Sitting Is Detrimental To Your Health. Is sitting “the new smoking”?

Maple, ON – In my seminars, I always tell my patients that the human body is designed to be moving and be active, not sedentary. Unfortunately, technology is advancing faster today then the evolutionary process.

Think about this for a moment. Early human ancestors were hunters and gathers. They were up on their feet all day, running, walking, bending, crouching and moving. They were not sitting in front of a TV, a computer monitor, in their car or at a desk. They were active and using their bodies the way it was designed to be used … for motion. 

Motion is health. And new research is showing this. Sitting is detrimental to you health. And too much sitting is flat out dangerous to your health, your longevity and your quality of life, no matter how much physical activity you participate with. In fact, sitting has been dubbed “the new smoking”. (more…)

Maple, ON – Many people complain of wrist pain and hand numbness. Often times patients come into my office and say they were already diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).

CTS occurs when repetitive strain and stress to the wrist causes tissue irritation and inflammation. This causes swelling in the part of the wrist called the Carpal Tunnel (CT), which is made up of 8 wrist bones called carpal bones and one tough ligament. Travelling through this small-spaced tunnel are 9 stringy, rigid tendons of the forearm and one soft nerve called the median nerve.  (more…)

Maple, ON – Health and happiness … two attributes that all people thrive for. People say, “without your health there is nothing”. I have noticed too that people are consciously or subconsciously searching for happiness in their life.

Interestingly, I have yet to meet a person who is sick that is happy and I have yet to meet a person who is unhappy that is generally healthy.

I have learned that to get what you want in life, look at other people who have what you want and do the same things that they are doing. So, if you are striving to better your health and are searching for happiness, do what other healthy, happy people do.

Here are the 7 Transformational Habits Of Healthy, Happy People:

1. They Get Regular Chiropractic Care – As a chiropractor, I meet many people who are searching for better health. My newest patients, when they come in with pain, stress and other health problems, the last emotion they are expressing is happiness. Some are frustrated with their pain and illness, some saddened and some are worried. But something amazing happens when they pursue chiropractic care … they get healthier, they become pain free, they handle their stress better and their quality of life improves. And this makes them much more happy!! The healthiest, happiest people I have ever met in my life are chiropractic patients. Chiropractic offers a unique approach to health care that aims to discover the root cause of the pain or health problem and then assists in correcting the root cause. Chiropractors work on balancing the nervous system by correcting spinal misalignments that interfere with healthy nerve transmission. The nervous system controls all bodily functions, all healing and all repair. The nervous system, especially the brain, is also involved with emotions and memory. Therefore, when the nervous is functioning optimally, people express better health, better function and improved emotional control. It’s no wonder that people who get regular chiropractic care are healthier and happier.

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.
