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

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.

6 Percocet Pills a Day Cannot Be the Answer to Better Health!

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

 

Yesterday I was listening to a radio talk show and one the of callers said something that I found very disturbing with regards to current health trends.

This person is suffering of back pain. His answer…he says he takes 6 Percocet pills a day (an opioid narcotic medication). SIX a day!! But that’s not all.

He also says he is given 25 novocaine injections a month for his back pain.

I have difficulty wrapping my head around the amount of drugs one person can take. So six percocet pills a day are not enough, that he still needs 25 novocaine injections each month.

Does this sound normal to you? Does this sound like a solution to correct back pain? Or any other health problem? I think not!

Like I say in my new book, Back to Health by Choice, it’s not about healthy living by chemistry (pills and injections). It’s healthy living by better lifestyle choices.

Health is a choice! The answers are available. Chiropractic has helped millions of people relieve pain, conquer stress, and regain their health.

To learn more, check out Back to Health by Choice today. It’s available on www.Amazon.com

You will read inspiring stories of hope, healing, and inspiration.

Do you live with continuous pain and discomfort? Do you suffer from horrible stress? Do you worry that your health is gradually declining? Millions of people go to the chiropractor to relieve their pain and improve their health.

But why do some people start chiropractic care and get well, while some of the most well-meaning people who are sick, suffering, stressed out, and in pain do not start chiropractic care and remain sick?

What is the essential prerequisite to elevating and maximizing your health?

Dr. Walter Salubro, DC – Chiropractor and author of Back to Health by Choice

After fifteen years of clinical practice, writer, speaker, and chiropractor Dr. Walter Salubro is more convinced than ever of the answer: people who regain their health do so by choice.

“Sitting Is Dangerous To Your Health.” Is it? A Study Review By Dr. Walter Salubro

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…)

7 Transformational Habits Of Healthy, Happy People

Healthy, Happy People Have These 7 Habits In Common. How Many Of These Habits Do You Have? 

ID-100154994

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).

The 5 Most Destructive Postures From Using Personal Electronic Devices Such As Smart Phones, Laptops, Tablets And Video Games

#1. Forward Head Position And Neck Flexion While Texting With Your Smart Phone

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.
