Whole Body Vibration and Posture Correction Demonstration

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

Chiropractor in Vaughan Explains Benefits of Whole Body Vibration with Posture Corrective Exercises


subscribe button 2

Vaughan, ON―I want to show you this demonstration with my vibration plate. It’s the CT Vibro Platform from Circular Traction.

The purpose for the vibration plate is to produce a whole-body vibration, from toe to head from foot to head. Now the purpose for using it in my office, I do structural corrective care as a chiropractor. So what it does is it produces this whole body vibration effect and massive proprioception stimulation to the nervous system and brain.

What that means is that it’s producing a lot of mechanical sensory information to the brain because of these small vibrations that are going through your body. And when I put people on this, I’ll demonstrate in a moment, and I give them postural corrective exercises and while they’re on the plate vibrating, they’re brain is picking up a whole bunch of information quickly. And now it wants to try to maintain the body in a new position.

So basically it’s retraining posture very, very quickly, with a lot of information to the nervous system and back to the postural muscles.

So let me show you, this plate over here and I got to turn it on so you see what it looks like. So I flip the camera around. So here’s the platform of vibration plates. Before I show you how it works, this is very important and this list of contraindications is bigger than this, but it’s not for anyone that’s pregnant, has acute thrombosis, heart conditions, fresh wounds, artificial joints, body parts, spinal pathologies, diabetes, epilepsy, acute migraines, acute inflammatory conditions, pacemakers, tumors and there’s a whole other list of contraindications that I have as well. So this is the exclusion criteria. Not everyone goes on there.

When someone can go on, this is how it works. So there’s a switch here with different settings and as I turned it on it starts to vibrate. Let me show you now I will put a block on so you have a reference point.

The plate has different settings. This is the frequency in hertz, so anywhere up until the 20 hertz, setting 3, on this machine is good for muscular ligaments and joint relaxation that is the relaxation settings. Over here, settings four to six. This is the range where it starts to give you a whole-body vibration that’s been shown in research to have a maximum effect on health. So a 27 to 40 hertz is great for proprioceptive neuromuscular re-education, which is what I was telling you about earlier, postural correction. And then higher settings, not recommended for for everyone. This is good for soft tissue absorption of a force, very high setting. We’re not going to go into this setting here. So I’m going to set it to a 33.

Now I’m going to go on this and you get to see what I’m talking about. I’m going to stand on it. Right now I am standing on the vibration plate. My whole body is vibrating. You might not see it there. So what I do is I place this block behind my back over here, stop myself, put my head back and start working on my posture. Lots of information is going to the brain to reeducate that postural position. Relax and that can be that 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 times. It feels really, really relaxing as well. Hope you found that useful and I’ll catch you on the next video.

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.

How To Prevent Slouching And Correct Your Posture With The Posture Medic Brace

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Dr. Walter Salubro, Chiropractor in Maple, Ontario, reviews the Posture Medic Brace and demonstrates how to wear it.

Posture Medic Brace Posture Perfector Posture CorrectionThe Posture Medic brace is a nice, effective and easy-to-use posture correcting brace that prevents slouching.

How do you know if you have bad posture? Here are some things to look for:

  1. Do you have rounded shoulders?
  2. Do you carry your head forward past your shoulders?
  3. Is one shoulder lower then the other?
  4. Is your upper back rounded?
  5. Do you have a hump at the top of your back?
  6. Does your pelvis (hips) shift forward?

Bad posture can cause shifts on your spinal bones, pressure on your nerves and discs and tension on your muscles.

Often times, bad posture leads to:

  1. Neck pains
  2. Back pains
  3. Headaches
  4. Fatigue
  5. Lack of energy
  6. Muscles tension and tightness
  7. Limited mobility
  8. Spinal degeneration / arthritis

Some simple changes in your daily activities help prevent postural problems from developing or progressing, like:

  1. Correcting your computer station/desk for optimum ergonomics.
  2. Avoid flexing or bending your neck when you text or use your smart phone or tablet devices.
  3. Sleeping with a good pillow.
  4. Wearing a posture correcting brace like the Posture Medic brace (see Video 1 and Video 2 below).

Posture-Medic-Brace-Posture-Perfector-Posture-Correction

I really like the Posture Medic brace and have recommended it to many of my patients. It’s actually a great compliment to my patient’s chiropractic care. The Posture Medic brace was originally called the Posture Perfector. It’s the same great product, just with a different name. The Posture Medic brace comes with a pamphlet that gives you easy-to-follow instructions for use and posture exercise suggestions.

The Posture Medic comes in different sizes so it can give the right amount of posture correction for your specific body type and size.
