Are you struggling with back pain, neck pain, headaches, or sciatica? Are you tired of the pain, of not knowing what will set it off, or even if there is a solution? Are you considering a Toronto chiropractor?
We understand – it can be frustrating, sometimes you’re not even sure where to start.
As a Toronto chiropractor for over 15 years, we’ve helped thousands of people in Toronto to start feeling better. Many for the first time in years! And to KEEP FEELING BETTER for years to come.
The first step is to determine exactly where you’re at. What you’re feeling, what you’ve tried and what hasn’t worked. We’ll sit down and listen to you and get your complete picture.
Then we’ll figure out how your body is working and what areas are contributing to your problems.
We’ll look at your movement (or lack thereof), how balanced your body and structure is, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and if necessary, perform digital structural x-rays, to see exactly where any potential damage may be. This is all performed in our state-of-the-art office.
We pride ourselves on the thoroughness of our assessment. Plan on being in our Toronto chiropractor clinic for an hour for this initial visit.
Once we’ve gathered all the data, we’ll sit down with you and tell you what we’ve found. You’ll understand in detail the areas that are contributing to your problem, and we’ll outline a strategy to start changing this – helping you to get back to the life you want.
We ensure that our patients understand the problem as well as the process required to change it.
And the truth is,we get GREAT RESULTS. We combine world-class corrective chiropractic care in our office, with patients who are actively INVOLVED in the process.
We have an expectation that patients PARTICIPATE in their care, this is a major part of the great long-term results we see. As a Toronto chiropractor, we do our part, but patients do their part also. We lay out specific corrective exercises, unique for each patient, that reinforce what we do in the office to assist in the process.
The more you participate in your care, the better and faster the results you’ll get. Period.
We’re proud to have been voted Best chiropractor Toronto in the Bloor West Village Readers Choice Awards, and take the responsibility of working with you and your health very seriously.
We know how important your health is…it really does impact every part of your life. From your quality of sleep, to your ability to exercise, to playing with your kids or grandkids…literally every part of your life is affected by your health.
As a chiropractor in Toronto, we will do everything we can to get you the results you want and deserve.
If you have any questions about what our Toronto chiropractor office does, or our process, please contact us. We’re always available to answer questions. Or please look at some of the reviews from our current patients…many of whom likely started out exactly where you are today.
Looking forward to helping you on your journey to getting healthier and feeling better.
Let us say this up front…we’re not saying that we’re the best chiropractor in Toronto. There are over 500 chiropractors in Toronto…we know some of them, but certainly not all of them, so that would be impossible, and arrogant, to say.
However, there are five key things we’d recommend to anyone looking for the best Toronto chiropractor.
1. Does the Toronto chiropractor have some decent reviews online?
If a Toronto chiropractor is doing a good job helping their patients, there should be some indication of this somewhere, and nowadays, that means online.
2. Is the Toronto chiropractor thorough?
Thoroughness is something to value with any professional that you work with. What does that look like in a Toronto chiropractic office? Does the chiropractor do a thorough consultation, a thorough examination (structural postural assessment, movement patterns, neurological and muscle testing), do they take digital structural x-rays?
It’s sort of like with your dentist. If you went to the dentist, and they told you that you had cavities, and they were going to drill them out…but, they didn’t insist on first doing a thorough assessment, and taking x-rays to CONFIRM that diagnosis, you’d likely be a little suspicious, or wary of this professional. You might consider a different dentist.
It’s no different for a Toronto chiropractor. While our assessment skills through visualization and palpation (feeling for motion) are excellent, nothing replaces actually seeing the positioning of the spinal bones on x-ray, and the health or degeneration of the bones and joints.
3. Does the Toronto chiropractor take the time to explain everything to you, in DETAIL?
This means not just rushing you to the adjustment table, but explaining what is happening, WHY it’s happening, and what can be done to correct it. For you to be involved in your care, and to get the best results possible, an understanding of the problem and the process to correct it is crucial.
Does the Toronto chiropractor recommend a treatment plan, designed to not only help you temporarily feel better, but to correct the underlying structural problems?
If all you want to do for now is feel better temporarily, fine. However, you should at least have the option, and understand what’s involved, if you chose a corrective course, to not only feel better now, but also to help you to prevent the problem from coming back in the future, and getting worse.
4. Does the Toronto chiropractor expect YOU to be an active participant in your recovery?
Chiropractic adjustments are great, but they’re not everything…some active care is REQUIRED to correct long-term spinal distortion. Active exercises should be recommended by your Toronto chiropractor as part of the plan to help you get better now, and stay better long term.
**This is a bonus, and maybe a bit of a warning.**
Is the Toronto chiropractor a “jack of all trades”?
Are they using every modality under the sun on you, with little to no hands-on treatment, or worse yet, do they try to upsell you on one multilevel marketing nutrient after another? If you feel they’re more concerned about their bottom line than your health, don’t walk out of there – run.
Take a moment and ask yourself the following questions:
This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but it you answered yes to all these questions, you’re on your way to seeing a great Toronto chiropractor…maybe even the best chiropractor in Toronto.
If we can help you on your search to feeling better and getting healthier, please let us know.
All the best,
Please fill out the form below, including all required fields, and we will contact you as soon as possible.
This really depends on you, or more specifically, the state of your health and your spine. The short answer is that many patients start to feel better after their very first adjustment, and continue to improve over time.
This also depends on your goals, whether you just want to be free of pain, want to get out of pain and take steps to stop it from happening again and getting worse, or want to get out of pain, correct the underlying issues, and train your spine and body to be fitter and stronger.
How quickly you feel better is also affected by your involvement in your care, and how consistently you do the spinal corrective exercises recommended for you. The more involved you are, the faster you improve.
What we do guarantee is that once we’ve analyzed your results, we’ll sit down with you, and outline where the problems are. We provide a strategy to go about changing it…including our expectation of how long this should take for you, specifically.
This question goes hand in hand with how long it will take to get better. Without knowing specifically what you’re experiencing, and the root cause, it is impossible to provide an accurate estimate of what your investment will be.
After your assessment, we will lay out in detail for you what our findings and recommendations are, and what the financial investment would be. Then it’s up to you. You can decide how you’d like to proceed at that point, together we’ll come up with the best strategy that works for you, and we’ll honour your decision.
The first step is coming into the office, and sitting down with one of our doctors, and telling them the details of your situation. We’ll listen to you, and ask questions, to get a better picture of what you’ve been experiencing. We’ll then begin our assessment, where we see how you move, what your structural alignment looks like, how balanced you are, any weakness, and feel how your spine moves.
If necessary, based on your findings, we may take digital structural x-rays, which is all done right in our office, so that you don’t have to travel. Once we’ve accumulated all the data and analyzed it, we’ll sit down with you and go over, in detail, what we’ve found, what it means, and what we’d recommend. Then you can decide your next steps.
When you come into our office, you’ll be greeted by our friendly front desk assistant. She’ll sit down with you and go over some of our new patient information, to find out more details about your situation.
Once you’re done, you’ll then be escorted by one of our doctors to a consultation room, where they’ll sit down with you and listen to what you’ve been experiencing, and ask any clarifying questions.
You’ll then proceed with an assessment, where they’ll examine your spine, looking at your overall structure, balance, how you move, and measure any weakness. If necessary based on previous traumas or your examination findings they will take digital structural x-rays to further identify any areas of damage in your spine that may be contributing to your problems and pain. All of this is done in our state-of-the-art office, without any need to travel.
Once the doctor has analyzed all of your findings, they’ll sit down with you on a subsequent visit to go over all the data, explain in detail what they found, what it means, and give you options as to what they’d recommend. You can then decide how you’d like to proceed.
This is all done in a relaxed atmosphere, and we invite you to ask questions along the way, and be involved in the process. The more that you are involved in the process, the better your results will be. We encourage your active participation.
After practicing for more than 15 years, we can almost guarantee that what we do doesn’t hurt. We use specialized techniques, including pneumatic drop tables, to make the adjustment as specific and gentle as possible, while creating the lasting structural correction to help you to start feeling and getting better.
It is possible that as your body starts changing and moving better, and your balance and structure starts to shift, that you might feel some of these changes. This is very similar to when your first start exercising, your body starts to adapt, and you may feel a little achy for the first couple workouts. Getting adjusted in our office is no different, but the achiness is generally very mild.
Before we start your chiropractic adjustments, we’ll explain everything in detail, and make sure you’re totally comfortable with everything we do. We will answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to read any of our reviews…several of our patients were nervous that it would hurt when they first started, but were surprised at how gentle the chiropractic adjustments are, and how quickly they felt better.
The simple answer is no. How long you decide to benefit from our care is entirely up to you. While we understand the importance of your spine to your overall ability to live the life you want pain-free, and encourage our patients to look after their spine long term, it is up to you to decide how long you choose to do this.
We have patients who decide that once they’re feeling better they are happy and will come back when the problem flares up again. We honour that decision, and invite them back whenever they are ready. Other patients choose ongoing maintenance care to maintain the improvements they’ve experienced, and to make sure the problem does not come back again. Whatever you choose to do, we are here to support your decision.
