Back pain

Foot and ankle pain


Hip, knee and leg pain

Joint and muscle sprains/strains

Neck pain

Shoulder pain



A chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific, controlled force applied to a restricted joint that is not moving properly. Chiropractic adjustments help return the bones to a normal position and restore proper motion to the joint.

We use the Diversified technique, which is the traditional, hands on, chiropractic adjusting technique utilizing a high velocity, low amplitude thrust. As this force is applied to the joint, it will generally result in a "popping" sound called a cavitation, which is simply a release of gas from the fluid within the joint. We also use joint mobilizations, a lower force technique, to restore proper joint mobility.     
Automobile Accident RehabilitationOur rehabilitation programs for motor vehicle accident injuries are designed to help you recover quickly. Whether you have had a mild whiplash or a more serious accident, we will develop a plan to guide you through the recovery process. Treatments following a motor vehicle accident are covered by your automobile insurance with no medical referral necessary.Workplace Injuries (WSIB)Our clinic is registered with WSIB (Workplace Safety & Insurance Board). If you have been injured at work, the cost of treatment is covered by WSIB. We will help you recover from your injuries and make a safe return to work. We are authorized providers of the POC (Program of Care) for low back, upper extremity and lower extremity injuries.Custom Foot OrthoticsOrthotics help re-align your feet and ankles in order to achieve a better base of support for your whole body. Custom orthotics can provide relief from foot/ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain and back pain.
We use Superfeet orthotics. This is a non-weight bearing method performed with t he patient in a seated position with the hip, knee and foot aligned with the ankle in subtalar neutral. The orthotic is then molded to the shape of your foot.
The result is better alignment of the feet, ankles, knees, hips and pelvis which provides the spinal column with a steadier base.  Therapeutic Ultrasound Ultrasound works by applying sound waves to the injured area. Ultrasound increases the rate of healing by two different mechanisms; thermal and non-thermal. Thermal effects of ultrasound increases blood flow and reduces muscle spasm in the affected areas. Non-thermal effects include tissue regeneration, reduction of swelling, and synthesis of protein and collagen. Ultrasound is effective, safe, and totally painless. Electrical Muscle Stimulation This therapy involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and relax tight muscles. Often described by patients as a "tingling" sensation, these impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins. This therapy can be used to treat acute or chronic pain.

Laser Therapy

Infrared light energy is used to temporarily elevate tissue temperature and increase localized blood circulation, thereby providing accelerated tissue healing. The result is improved personal comfort; relieving minor muscular and joint pain and relaxing muscles to improve range of motion.
