Arthritis is NOT the problem?

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

ID-100408931Let 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.

How Chiropractic Helps with TMJ Treatment

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Chiropractor in Vaughan Demonstrates and Explains How Chiropractic Treats for TMJ Syndrome

TMJ Treatment Chiropractor in VaughanMaple, ON—Jaw pain? Clicking in the jaw? Having trouble chewing hard foods like apples and nuts. Perhaps you have a TMJ problem.

People often ask me if chiropractic can help with TMJ syndrome. The short answer is Yes! Read on to discover how chiropractic helps with TMJ treatment. Also, I have a short video that explain and demonstrates how chiropractic assesses ands treats or corrects for TMJ problems. TMJ stands for temporalmandibular joint.

First, lets discuss what TMJ syndrome or TMJ dysfunction is. 

TMJ syndrome is an issue or problem with the jaw joints.  A person with TMJ problems may have pain or clicking in the jaw joints or may notice that their jaw deviates or shifts to one side when they open their jaw.

What Causes TMJ Syndrome

TMJ problems can be caused from:

  • Trauma to the head and face.
  • Trauma to the upper joints of the neck.
  • Recent dental work.
  • Braces.

Watch Video for Demonstration of a Chiropractic TMJ Exam

The biomechanics of the neck joints at the base of the skull are associated with the jaw biomechanics. As well, the nerves of the upper neck coming from the brain stem relate to the jaws, so if there is a problem nerve function at the upper neck, this can cause jaw issues as well. But, one of the most common reasons for TMJ problems is recent dental work. If you have TMJ problems, you need to ask yourself if you have had recent dental work.

Why is recent dental work relevant? Well, imagine that you are sitting on a dental chair for an hour or an hour and a half and they are doing a procedure on your mouth.  Your mouth is wide open and may be jammed open or blocked open with a blocker. You then come out of that position after an hour and a half and you feel like your mouth is restricted and you can’t even move your jaw. This is one of the mechanisms of injury for the TMJ. If you have pain in the jaw, clicking in the jaw, deviation of the jaw, and some recent trauma or dental work or other trauma to your neck or face region, then these are some of the reasons how the TMJ problems could have happened.

I Almost Cried When I Visited A Local Nursing Home. Here’s Why…

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Chiropractic Office in Vaughan to Focus on Helping People with Restricted Mobility in May

A recent visit to a local nursing home humbled me. 

I will tell you about it but first I want to remind you how grateful I am.

I recall about nine years ago when I ran my first 10k race. I hardly trained for it and it was going to run a 10km distance for the first time. By the time I was half way through, my legs felt so heavy and my muscles were in excruciating pain. Only one thing got me through the finish line.

Gratitude!

That’s right. I had a overwhelming sense of gratitude. Through all the pain, the sweat, and the fatigue, I kept on saying to myself, “I’m so grateful for my legs. I’m am so grateful for my muscles. I’m so grateful for my strength”.

That’s the only way I pulled through. I crossed the finish line.

Why do I tell you this story?

Well, I tell you because if you are able to walk and get around on your own two feet and legs, then you should be grateful too.

You see, there are many people in our society, maybe even people you know personally, that have a restriction with their mobility and require the use of a cane, a walker, or a wheel chair.

If you don’t know of any personally, then visit a local nursing home and you will see how common this is.

Recently, I went to visit a family friend in a nursing home with my wife.  After we were done with our visit, we were waiting for the elevator. About 50 feet away from us was a sweet elderly woman in a wheel chair.

But something seemed off. 

She then starting yelling but because she spoke a language that was foreign to me, I didn’t understand what she was saying.

She kept on yelling. I realized it was more of a distress call and that she was trying to get my attention.

I walked over to her. Her frailty and weakness was really noticeable. I then saw that she was slowly slipping off her wheel chair.

So I immediately helped her up into a seated position.

What she did next melted my heart.

She tilted her head down, put her face in one hand, and started to cry. Tears were pouring down her cheeks. I looked at her, held her hand and told her, “It’s okay”.

It suddenly occurred to me how helpless she must have felt and how she probably wished she had the strength to help and support herself.

What would she give to be able to walk again? What would that be worth to her? There’s no amount of money that can equate to this basic need and value as a human being.

This is why we should all be grateful for our ability to walk and get around with our own legs and our strength.

But there are far to many people who have restriction with their mobility and depend on external devices likes a cane, a walker, or a wheel chair.

And this is why at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we are honouring Restricted  Mobility Awareness.

That’s right, May is Restricted Mobility Awareness Month.

Our aim this month is to focus on reaching out and helping people with restricted mobility; anybody with a cane, walker, or wheel chair. 

How can we help? With chiropractic care. Chiropractic can help improve power to muscles, increase mobility of restricted joints in the spine, hip, and knees, and it can help increase strength.

If you know of anyone in your circle of family and friends who is currently using a cane, a walker, or a wheel chair, then refer them for a chiropractic check up today. They certainly can use it.
 
If they need encouragement or reasurrance, then bring them to our office yourself.
 
And, if they want the check up but can’t get to our office, then I will do my best to get to them with a home visit.
 
Remember the story of the elderly lady above.
 
Let’s start seeing more smiles on people’s faces and not tears. Together, we can make this happen through chiropractic.

Call our office today at (905) 303-1009 to discover how chiropractic can help with restricted mobility.

Sunday, February 14th, 2016

Massage Therapist in Maple, Vaughan, Ontario at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre – Relieve Pain, Reduce Stress, and Feel Better

Massage Therapy Maple VaughanMassage therapy can be one of the most relaxing and therapeutic things you can do, especially when you are overly stressed or in pain.

A Registered Massage Therapist is trained to deliver specific soft tissue technique, such as Swedish Massage, deep tissue massage, and trigger point therapy that aims to reduce, eliminate, and melt away muscle tension and pain.

Many people enjoy the tremendous benefits of massage therapy. Massage therapy has been an integral service delivered at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre in Maple, Ontario.

Here are the top 10 key benefits of massage therapy:

1. Tension release. Deep tissue massage offered by a registered massage therapy can really work out old kinks and tight muscles. Chronic muscle tightness can develop from a variety of reasons, such as past traumas or injuries or constant daily repetitive strains. If you are feeling tightness in your shoulder, neck or back muscles, you will find that the deep tissue techniques offered by a massage therapist can really begin to melt away all that discomfort and tension.

2. Relaxation. With the levels of stress and overwhelm that most people feel today, a nice relaxing massage might just be the answer you are looking for. Massage offers a therapeutic touch that makes this healing art unique. It is relaxing, soothing, and comforting. When your stress hits the ceiling in your life, it’s time to break it down with a relaxing massage.

3. Tissue healing. Massage therapy can break down scar tissue and connective tissue adhesions that develop from chronic and sub-acute conditions. This will help accelerate healing in a stubborn injury.

4. Circulation. Muscle tightness can create tension on the small blood vessels that feed nutrients and oxygen to the local tissues. When muscle tightness is released and minimized with a therapeutic massage, blood circulation can in the surrounding tissues can increase.

5. Detox and cleansing. The more blood circulation the there is, the more toxins will be removed from your body. This can be a great hidden benefit of massage therapy. Another unique form of massage therapy can specifically target the lymaphatic vessels of the body which will create a deeper cleansing and detoxing effect. This form of massage therapy is called lymphatic massage. Lymphatic massage involves lightly milking and pressing along the lymphatic chain in various parts of the body, like the neck, which can really help move lymphatic sludge which has dangerously accumulated over the years.

6.  Improves posture. Bad posture can develop when muscles get tight and tense, especially over a span of many years. Massage therapy can directly focus on reducing tightness and tension on postural muscles which can lead to improved posture.

7. Increases energy. When you are stressed and feel tension in your body and muscles, it can be very draining and fatiguing by the end of the day. A relaxing and therapeutic massage will improve your energy levels because it helps to eliminate that uncomfortable tightness and tension on your back, neck, shoulders, and muscles.

8. Improves sleeping. Sometimes it’s just so challenging to get a good nights sleep or to find yourself in a comfortable sleeping position. This may be due to the tremendous amount of muscle tension, tightness, stress, and pain that you carry. When you release these tight muscles and reduce the tension on your body with massage therapy, you will find you will begin fall asleep easier and wake up in the morning feeling refreshed.

9. Helps treat conditions like back pain, neck pain, migraine, headaches, leg pain, shoulder pain, and arm pain. These are very common conditions and reasons that bring someone to a massage therapist. Often times massage therapy can help people suffering of these conditions cope with their condition better as they move along their road to recovery.

10. It can be a nice treat to yourself. Many people treat themselves with a nice, relaxing, and therapeutic massage. Let’s face it, massages feel great and help you feel better. Who doesn’t want that? So next time you feel overworked, overwhelmed, stressed, and under appreciated, treat yourself and your aching body to a nice, therapeutic, relaxing, and soothing massage.

Why Should Children Experience Chiropractic Care?

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

[Video] Many Parents Take their Children to the Chiropractor. You’ll Be Surprised Why.

Maple, ON – Parents always want the best for the children. They want to see their children safe, strong, and healthy.  However, when it comes to optimal health and well-being, very few moms and dads realize why they should bring their child to a chiropractor for a check-up.

For adults, chiropractic may make sense for them when they seek treatment for conditions like low back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc. But since children don’t experience these types of conditions, why should parents take their child to the chiropractor for a chiropractic well exam or check up?

This video by Dr. Walter Salubro, a chiropractor in Vaughan, Ontario, who focuses on chiropractic pediatric care, answers this question. If you are a parent of children under the age of 10, you must watch this video.

Local Chiropractor in Vaughan Donates His New Book to the Maple Library at the 25th Anniversary Celebration Event

Monday, December 7th, 2015

Dr. Walter Salubro, Chiropractor in Vaughan and Author of Back to Health by Choice, Donates a Copy of His Book for the Maple Library Collection

Maple, ON — It was a day of celebration on Saturday December 5th at the Maple Community Centre, where Vaughan’s city counsel, headed Hon. Mayer Maurizio Bevilaqua, commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Maple Library and the community centre. 

“I recall when my friends and I first heard about this community centre being built. It was many years ago and I was in high school at that time”, explains Dr. Salubro. “We were ecstatic. Over the years and until this present day, I have used the library very regularly. I have also used other facilities like the fitness centre, swimming pool, and squash courts.”

The Maple Community Centre is located on Keele St., just north of Major Mackenzie. It has been a staple of recreational activities for people of all ages over the last 25 years.

“I extremely proud and privileged to be able to donate a copy of my new book to the Maple Library collection. I value reading and continuous learning and the library in any community is an extremely valuable resource. My book is only a small contribution in comparison to what the entire library has to offer for the learner and for the community.”

At the celebration event, Mayor Bevilaqua also announced that a new library and resource centre is being constructed next the Vaughan City Hall. This will certainly be an exciting addition to the growing number of community resources in the City of Vaughan.

Local Chiropractor in Vaughan Launches the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group on Facebook

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Chiropractor at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre in Maple (Vaughan) is Creating an Online Community of Mothers-To-Be to Share their Thoughts, Ideas, and Experiences that Support a Natural, Safe, and Easy Pregnancy

MP900442961 Maple, ON – Today pregnancy is treated more like a medical condition rather than a natural, normal process. The use of medical interventions in the form of drugs and surgery have become very common, like pitocin, epidurals, c-sections, and episiotomies.

My mom tells me stories of how she and my dad were delivered by a midwife in their little southern Italian village decades ago. There were no hospital rooms and no medications. Pure, natural births.

At our chiropractic office, we strive to foster an environment where our patients are empowered, trusting, and confident in a pregnancy and birth process that is innate and natural.  

Chiropractic care, amongst other holistic professions, offer support for a natural, wellness pregnancy so that birth can be easy and safe for both mother and baby.  Pregnancy chiropractic care is safe and gentle and it helps balance the pelvic and spinal structures. This not only helps relieve pregnancy-related back pain, hip pain or leg pain, but it also helps minimize tension on the uterine ligaments and contraint on the uterus. This is important as a uterus free of intra-uterine contraint will provide for a safer environment for fetal position and subsequently an easier birth.

One of the initiatives at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre is to connect like-minded people who want to share their ideas, thoughts, and experiences about the wellness pregnancy. How we accomplished this is with a Facebook Group called the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group.

The purpose of the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group is to educate mothers-to-be in Vaughan and the surrounding areas about the vast resources that support a natural, wellness pregnancy so that both mom and baby can experience a healthier, easier, and safer birth.

Feel free to check out this group and join. You can share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences with holistic practitioners, chiropractic, Webster Technique, other support therapies, exercises, yoga, classes, workshops, seminars, nutrition, supplementation, stress relief, and goals/vision that support a wellness pregnancy.

We would love to hear about your holistic, wellness pregnancy experience.

Also, share your experiences, thoughts and ideas about home birthing, midwife care, doulas, and lactation consultants.

This is a group of like-minded people and experts that will support and encourage other mothers-to-be to trust in the natural process of birthing so they can experience pregnancy and birth with peace, joy, and love, versus stress, fear, and doubt.

Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group was launched by Vaughan chiropractor, Dr. Walter Salubro on October 29, 2015 and it has already grown to 51 members in it’s first week.

“My vision with the Vaughan Wellness Pregnancy Support Group is to connect mothers-to-be so they can create a community of support for each other and encourage a more natural pregnancy and birthing process”, says Dr. Walter Salubro. “I would love to see other holistic pre-natal care providers join, participate, and offer their expertise and insights into how to have a wellness pregnancy. We invite midwives, doulas, naturopaths, homeopaths, pre-natal yoga intructors, holistic nutritionists, and any other holistic practitioner or therapist.”
