We offer spinal adjustments with that extra something special.

We have given over 200,000 adjustments to babies 1 day old, seniors 90 years young, people in wheelchairs, in hospitals, many failed back surgery cases and professional athletes.

3. Spinal Decompression Therapy

For patients with severe back pain, sciatica or disc herniations, studies have shown that spinal decompression therapy has proved to be more effective than other therapies. Spinal decompression therapy uses a medical technology that applies a distraction force to the targeted compressed disc. This gently pulls the spine apart, elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae, which pulls the disc back into shape. This vacuum also allows water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to enter into the disc to allow the spine to heal and relieve the pain. The medical term for this vacuum-like effect is known as negative intra-discal pressure.

4. Extremity Adjustments

We offer and provide adjustments to extremity areas other than the spine, such as the TMJ, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

5. X-rays and spinal photography

We have state-of-the-art digital full x-ray services using the same technology seen in hospital based facilities. The detail is astonishing, with decreased exposure to x-rays, clearer, more precise images and xray image disk available.

6. Low Intensity Laser Therapy

Laser Therapy is used in the elimination of pain and other  acute and chronic health condition such as whiplash, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, joint pain and disc herniations.
Rather than simply focusing on the symptoms, the conventional approach to pain management, our office uses a low intensity laser developed in the GTA of a specific wavelength and power. It works at the cellular level to relieve pain and restore cells to their normal functioning state.

7. Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is one of the oldest natural modalities that has been proven to work. It is safe and effective for people of all ages. Massage therapy stimulates blood flow, eases tension, increases and maintains flexibility, and detoxifies the body with no adverse effects. Our RMT's are versed in many styles of massage therapy, and have extensive experience dealing with motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, occupational stress, and accidents.

Using state of the art computerized Gaitscan technology we can custom make orthotics for foot comfort and a variety of conditions such as plantar fascitis, heel pain and metatarsalgia. 

9. Nutritional Counseling

You know what to do but you don't do it, why? Because habits are thousands of times stronger than goals, desires, wishes or dreams. You've been told by your doctor to just eat better and take some synthetic vitamins but that doesn't work. We will teach you not only the latest successful information on what to do and what to take but more important, how to break your destructive habits that keep you unhealthy, overweight, or from maximizing your health potential. We use and suggest the best food choices and the finest plant-based supplements and vitamins made today of superior quality. Not the synthetic, dead nutrients you find at the drug store, grocery stores or 'mart' stores. Those supplements are often made in China without quality controls, are then shipped to Canada where they are labeled with fancy labels but their nutritional quality is extremely low and may even be harmful and toxic to your health. We provide and suggest nutritional supplements and detoxification programs to help eliminate such conditions as fatigue, cramps, difficulty sleeping, stress, sinus problems, digestive problems, constipation, menopausal symptoms and many other conditions and of course the finest supplements to optimize your health in peak performance and longevity.
