Can an L4-L5 Disc Bulge be Cured with Treatment? Explained By Chiropractor in Vaughan, Dr. Walter Salubro

subscribe button 2

Vaughan – Is an L4 L5 disc bulge curable? Can L4 L5 disc bulge be repaired? Can it get back to normal? Can it be resolved, an L4 L5 disc bulge. In fact, can any disc bulge be fixed or resolved? That’s one of the common questions I get asked in my comment section below my videos on my YouTube channel (www.YouTube.com/drwaltersalubro), so I want to answer this question for you today.

Hi, my name is Dr Walter Salurbo from Back to Health Chiropractic Center in Vaughan, Ontario. One of the most commonly asked questions I get is about disc bulges and what kind of options can be done to help prevent surgery and how could the problem that causes the bulge be corrected? So, I want to address this today.

Most people ask me if it’s curable or not and I understand why they’re asking. Many people have been found to have a disc bulge with associated symptoms such as low back pain, muscle stiffness, restricted mobility, shooting pain down the legs, like sciatica, radiating pain down the legs, numbing and tingling, discomfort or irritation down the legs. That’s a concern and it’s very disabling to have these type of low back conditions and symptoms.

The truth is, many people that I have talked to in my comments section and in my YouTube channel have told me that they want to prevent surgery. They want to know if this bulge is actually fixable. Now, let me address that and clear up some misconceptions and confusion.

The truth is that if you have a disc bulge or herniation, it’s very possible to receive certain types of treatment and care that will help you get back to a normal level of function in your life. It’s also very possible for surgery to be prevented.

Now, I don’t use words like cured. I don’t know if a disc bulge can actually be cured. What I do know is that the associated symptoms that come with this bulge can be cleared up. And I do know that people can actually return back to a normal function.

How? Because I’ve seen this day in and day out, week in, and week out in my office. I think what’s important to know is that it’s not so much about curing the disc bulge, but it’s more about correcting the structural problem that led to derangement in the disc, the disruption of the disc, or even the disc bulge. So let me explain.

UntitledHere’s a spinal model. The low back spinal model. So there’s five vertebra and in between each bone, we have our discs. This here would be an example of a disc bulge . This is a lateral disc bulge, some others are posterior lateral, which means back into the side and some go centrally meaning straight back. So once the disc is disrupted and it’s bulged, that’s essentially irreversible, permanent damage to that disc. Whether it loses height, or it becomes dried up, that’s irreversible damage to the disc. So, you’re not going to really change much of that structural disruption of the disc. However, what I want to know is what caused it, what led to that disruption and to that bulge?

If someone’s spine was tilting like that, then that can lead, over the years and decades, to a disruption in the fibers of the disc that causes the inside nucleus to actually bulge out. So my question is what caused this alignment problem or what’s going on to cause a disruption of the disc and is it an alignment problem?

What if the alignment problem is going forward. Then that will disrupt the disc forward and also possibly bulge it backwards. What if it’s going backwards? That again can disrupt the disc and bulge it backwards. So the appropriate question is what can be actually done to correct the structural abnormality to reduce the pressure on the irritation on the disc and thereby alleviate the inflammation and inflammatory response that’s associated with the disc bulge and therefore alleviate all of the associated symptoms that come with that?

And one of the best things that I’ve seen and helped a lot of people with this is corrective chiropractic care and chiropractic care in general. This involves adjusting and correcting the actual spinal misalignments, also called subluxations. And in doing so, when you realign the spine into a better position, a more optimal ideal position, what it does biomechanically and structurally, is it reduces the abnormal stress on the discs that led to the disruption and bulge in the first place. And in doing so, when the abnormal stress is eliminated, now the disc actually has time to breathe essentially, to actually exist free of irritation. Therefore, there’s no need for the body to produce an inflammatory response and when there’s no inflammation, there is no swelling and all the cardinal signs that come with inflammation; the blood flow and the irritation that goes there that triggers pain response. So, all of that begins to get reduced and eliminated and that’s what happens with many of my patients that have a disc bulge, as we correct the structural underlying problem, misalignment of the spine.

If someone doesn’t feel it, it’s most likely still there, and I’ve seen that in MRI reports, but I have many patients that that are doing better with their bulge condition. They have reduced back pain by 90 percent or even eliminated the actual progression to surgery and reduced their intake of medication. They are walking, standing and bending normally. They are back working and playing and doing all the things in their day to day life that they want without the drugs, without the surgery and gained their strength back with specific chiropractic adjustments. And, of course, we also provide supportive recommendations such as core exercise, training, mobilization, balance work, and a bunch of other things to add to the stability of the spine.

I hope this answers the question if a disc bulge can be cured and the key is to remember that it’s not so much about curing or fixing the disc bulge, but to correct the structural abnormality or the structural misalignment, also called subluxations, of the spine that led to the disruption of the disc.

“Why is My Back Pain Not Getting Better?” – Answered by Chiropractor in Vaughan Dr. Walter Salubro

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Vaughan, ON – New Video Answers this Commonly Asked Question, “Why is My Back Pain Not Getting Better?”

subscribe button 2

Hey! It’s Dr. Walter Salubro here from Back to Health Chiropractic Centre. I’m a chiropractor in Vaughan and the chiropractor who wrote this book, Back to Health by Choice: How To Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress, and Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

And if you have back pain, I want to give you couple tips on helping you get through back pain struggles, especially if you had chronic back pain and have tried therapies or drugs or different things and still have the problem.

There’s a couple of things we need to get when it comes to resolving back pain. And the number one thing is having a proper diagnosis—truly discovering the reason why you have back pain. And one of the most common reasons for back pain is because of a musculoskeletal problem, usually along the spine.

So let me explain. So here’s a model of the low back. Low back is made up of five bones. They’re called vertebrae and in between each bone are discs. They act like shock absorbers. And we know from research in science that the spine needs to have a certain shape from the front, which is straight and have a certain shape from the side, which is curvy and then the back, low back in this case, it’s elliptical in shape.

And there are lots of structure that relates to the spine, which makes the back very, very complex. So there are the bones, the discs, there’s nerves that come out from the side, both sides of the spine. And on the inside is the spinal cord, which connects brain to the body.

So you can imagine how important the spinal column is because it protects your nervous system, your spinal cord, your connection between brain and body, which controls everything—not only how your body functions but also how your body repairs and heals. And that’s key.

So when back pain is involved, there is usually four main structures along the spine that are affected. That will give you insights to why people get back pain, why you get back pain, and why it’s important to discover what’s causing it and getting it corrected. So let me explain through this model here.

So here’s another segment of the spine. It’s a spinal model. So you have the bones, discs, muscles, nerves and what attaches the muscles to the bones are called tendons. So when there’s a spinal misalignment, and I have to basically shift the spine so you can see that. So let’s say the spine is shifting like this; it’s out of alignment. A few things happen.

You notice here, at the disc, it’s being compressed. So when the spine is being shifted, the disc is being compressed. Okay. The muscles are being stretched out. The tendons that attach the muscles are being stretched out and the joint capsule over here on the back is also being stretched out. So four structures are involved along the spine.

There is the disc, which is being disrupted and injured. There are the muscles that attach the vertebra that are being stretched out. There are the tendons that attach the muscles to the vertebra that are being stretched out as well. And then there’s the capsule, which is this ligamentous material that closes the joints, that keeps it in place.

So whenever there’s a spinal misalignment or subluxation, that will trigger information to the brain that something is off. So all those structures—the discs, the muscles, the tendon, the capsules of the joints that are on your spine—when there’s a spinal misalignment, so it should be straight from the front, curvy from the side—when there’s a spinal misalignment that’s out of alignment, that’s not good, that’s called the spinal misalignment or subluxation.

Those four structures—discs, muscles, tendons and capsule—will be disrupted and it will send messages to the brain that something is off. Now the brain will try to correct it posturally, causing muscle spasms to try to realign that, causing signals of there has been injury there. So inflammation is being triggered to try to heal the area.

So when there’s inflammation, typically along the joint capsules, and the disc areas, those are highly pain sensitive structures, chemical mediators are released that are noxious to the tissues and there’s swelling in that area. So it’s very, very painful. And that’s why back pain is a big problem because it’s painful and if the cause is due to a misalignment of the spine, subluxation, then it’s important that it gets properly diagnosed. That’s very important.

So as a chiropractor, my objective is to discover if the back pain that you come in with is caused from the spine and these structures. Because if it is, then it’s a chiropractic case and it’s something that we can help correct.

So the second important thing, other than discovering what the true problem is, is to actually finally correct it. And there’s a lot of ways to relieve back pain. In fact, I’m writing a new book that’s called Back Pain Resource Guide. I’ll talk about that in a moment. And I’ll have a lot of tips in there on how to relieve back pain at home and get through back discomfort. But what’s key is to correct the underlying problem that’s causing the back pain.

If it’s a distortion on your spine, causing distortion on the structures that are triggering inflammation and pain, that needs to be corrected. And that’s what chiropractic does, it helps correct those spinal misalignment problems to relieve the distortion on those four structures, decrease the inflammatory process naturally, and then the brain now has an opportunity to send healing messages to that part of the spine or the back.

Now, let me give you a case report. This is a very, very recent brief case report to illustrate this. I had a patient that came in this week. This man, he had back pain for several months to a year and not only was the back aching and hurting, but the pain was traveling down the leg as well. And he’s been to a physiotherapist. He’s been to massage. He’s been to exercise, tried yoga, tried drugs and medications and sometimes they’ve helped, those treatments, and sometimes it made things little worse. That happens sometimes. But the key is that the problem never got resolved.

So they were finally referred to my office. And we did a full checkup, range of motion, stress scan on the nervous system, posture check, we did a lot of things. Checked the spine for shifts and subluxations. And this is what I’ve discovered, really interesting actually; here is another model of the spine, same idea, spine, right? This one here has the pelvic bones, right? So this person’s subluxation was where the pelvis was actually rotated backwards. There was a rotation in the pelvis backwards.

Now, I identified that through specific tests that we do. And then I gave this person an adjustment the same day. And I’ve essentially corrected that misalignment. And I told him how to do some things at home to help relieve that. A day went by, I called the patient the next day and asked him how he did with the adjustments and how the back is feeling. And this is what the patient said, is that, “This is the first time in the last six to twelve months after doing all these therapies that I’ve done that I finally got immediate relief of their low back pain.” Why? Why that happened?

Two reasons. One, because the problem was discovered. And two, because it was corrected properly. Now, we need to do more work on this person to continue the correction, maintain it and do some rehabilitative work, exercises to help strengthen the core, and all that to prevent injuries in the future. But that illustrates how important it is to discover the main problem properly and then correct it. And if it’s a spinal problem, that’s a chiropractic case that we can work with.

So I hope you found that useful and valuable. If you liked it, please give some thumbs up. Give some comments below. I love to answer your questions. Share this with a family member or friend that may find this useful too, especially if they have back pain. And also, I want to tell you about something exciting I am working on.

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.

The Real Problem with ‘Text Neck’

Vaughan, ON―Smart phones. Tablets. Texting. Social Media.

Most us, me included, are hooked on our smart phones and multi-media devices.

This is a big problem. Why?

Because of the constant bending of the neck.

It may seem like this constant bending of the neck is no big deal because in most cases people don’t feel neck pain from texting.

However, what is actually happening is premature aging and wearing down of the spine and discs. This is called degenerative arthritis or osteoarthritis.

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!

How to Prevent Arthritis with Chiropractic

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

Image courtesy of David Castillo Dominici at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

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).

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.
