Hey! It’s Dr. Walter Salubro here from Back to Health Chiropractic Centre, Chiropractor in Vaughan, and the author of Back to Health by Choice: How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress & Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

 And today, I want to give you a tip on how to strengthen the low back. So follow me. Check this out.

Now, in this video, I’m not only going to show you an exercise that helps to strengthen your low back but this particular exercise also help improve muscle activation, muscle firing patterns in the thigh area, buttock area and lower back region.

And that’s important because one of the most common elements that I see in our patients that have low back pain is that their muscle firing sequences in their thigh, glutes and lower back region is disrupted. It’s out of balance. And that can cause further muscle problems, further back pain, and also delay the healing process.

So this exercise is very important to help strengthen the low back, rehabilitate it, improve the coordination and the muscle activation. Thereby, decreasing the stress, tension, pain, inflammation on low back while making it stronger.

3 Best Sciatica Stretches for Ultimate Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief

Chiropractor in Vaughan Shares Do-It-Yourself Ways to Relieve Pain from Sciatica

Vaughan, ONLeg pain. Sciatica. Sciatic nerve pain.

If you suffer from leg pain or sciatic nerve pain, pay attention to this video, I’m going to give some tips on how to relieve pain from sciatica or leg pain.

My name is Dr. Walter Salubro from Back to Health Chiropractic Centre, Chiropractor in Vaughan, and the author of Back to Health by Choice: How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress & Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way.

So where does the sciatic nerve come from?

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 1Well, here’s a model of the low back, the lumbar spine, and the spinal cord sits on the inside of the spinal canal. And, interesting enough, in the low back, the actual spinal cord stops right about here, about L1, L2, and then continues on as a bunch of nerves, and these nerves come off from the sides.

These are the lumbar spinal nerves and then it also goes down to the sacral region. These are the sacral nerves. The lower lumbar, low back nerves, and the sacral nerves form a big nerve called the sciatica, which emerges out of the muscles of the buttock area, goes down at the back of the leg, into the calf, all the way down to the foot.

So here’s a spinal nerve chart to demonstrate that. Here’s the lumbar spine. You see all the nerves that branch off from the lumbar spine and also the sacral region fit into the big sciatic nerve. No wonder it’s so painful when it’s irritated or inflamed because this big nerve has a lot of nerve endings—very, very painful when it’s irritated and the nerve travels down to the back of the leg, to the thigh, branches out  all the way into the foot. So leg pain can be thigh pain in the back of the thigh, behind the knee, or also in the calf, and also in the foot. Sometimes it causes tingling sensation, numbing, also shooting pain down the leg or dull, aching, pain.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 6So what I want to do today is give you some tips on how to stretch out the region of the low back and gluteal areas that could irritate and inflame sciatic nerve causing leg pain and sciatic nerve pain. And, by doing these stretches, it will give you some very, very effective relief in that area. So follow me and let’s go to these stretches.

Alright. Here we go.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 2Let’s start with stretch number 1. This is called the knee to chest stretch. Bend one knee. Hold it with your hands towards your chest. Hold that for 10 seconds. Repeat 3 times. With all these stretches, you want to hold it for 10 seconds and repeat it 3 times. Do the same to the opposite side. You get a nice stretch in the gluteal region and in the muscles surrounding the sciatic nerve, which can trigger sciatic nerve pain when inflamed or spasmed. Also a good stretch for the low back as well.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 3A variation of this stretch is a double knee to chest stretch. Take both hands, pull the knees towards your stretch. Get a very good stretch in the lower back region where the sciatic nerve originates from and also in the gluteal region where the sciatic nerve is as well. Very, very good stretch to relieve back pain and leg pain.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 4Stretch number 2 is called an angled knee to chest stretch just like here that you see. Take your knee, pull it towards your chest just like before but you are going to angle it to the opposite shoulder, get a nice stretch in that hip on the lateral side in the gluteal region where the sciatic nerve comes out. Very, very effective.

Now if you have pain with any of these stretches, you need to ease up a bit. Never stretch into any pain range.

sciatica pain relief stretches chiropractor in vaughan Dr Walter Salubro 5Stretch number 3 is very, very effective for sciatic nerve. It’s called the piriformis muscle stretch. Take one leg, put it in a figure four position. Pull your hands through your thighs. Pull the thighs to you as you’re stretching the opposite side of where your hands are—a great stretch for the piriformis muscle, which is a trigger for sciatic nerve when it’s spasmed.

There you have it. There’s some very effective, easy to do stretches to give you relief for sciatica or leg pain. Give them a try. They’re very, very effective.

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.

How to Relieve Pain, Conquer Stress, and Supercharge Your Health the Chiropractic Way

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.

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.
