How do we assist you in regaining the health you’ve lost and show you how to keep it?

Through our Chiropractic Care

While many people consult our office for pain or symptomatic relief, chiropractic is about much more than keeping you pain-free. Chiropractic focuses on the integrity of your nervous system, which regulates and controls EVERY cell and tissue of your body. Moving spinal bones can impair this vital communication link between your brain and body. Daily physical, emotional, and chemical stressors that infants, children and adults experience can cause spinal joints to become ‘stuck’. Over time, this limits function and inhibits quality of life. Worse yet, pain or symptoms may not manifest until permanent damage is done. When our doctors locate areas of damage, he/she applies a precise yet gentle force to ‘stuck’ spinal joints to reduce nerve irritation. This is called an “adjustment.” In time, nerves revive and health returns. This is why chiropractic can benefit anyone. Naturally.

We consider Spadina Chiropractic Centre to be a close-knit family, and feel very fortunate to work here. The staff often share knowledge and expertise with each other, which enables us to give our patients the best professional care. Being true health care practitioners, our goal, is your optimum physical and emotional well being.

Through Our Technology:

Gait scan
This scanning technology provides vital information on how each step you take may be putting undue pressure on your knees, hips and lower back. If required we can use this information to create custom-made orthotics to rectify the problem, and help you to hold your chiropractic adjustments.

Through Our Orthotic Services:
Foot, ankle, knee, hip and back problems can often be a result of the way we walk! In other words, our feet not supporting us properly can drastically affect the speed of our recovery from these ailments. Using our Gait Scan technology, we can determine quickly and effectively if custom-made orthotics would help you.

Through Kinesio Taping®

Kinesio Taping® Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain & inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is not a restrictive type of taping, and allows for full range of motion. In contrast, traditional sports’ taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event. Kinesio® tape is used for a wide range of problems. Examples include: carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain, subluxations, herniated disc, knee conditions, shoulder conditions,sports injuries, etc.

Through Our Exercise Programs:
Exercise is essential for good health. We are designed to move and when we do not, poor health will be the result. A combination of stretching, strengthening, balance, stability, and cardiovascular exercise will make a huge difference in your recovery. Certain muscles have a tendency to become weak and others to become tight. Identifying these and prescribing exercises to correct this imbalance will avoid undue stress on the joints, your nervous system and overall health. Specific routines and advice can be provided. Referrals for more advanced and monitored programs will be provided if required.

Through Our Nutrition Services:
Nutrition can have major impact on our health, especially when we are trying to heal. The quality of the food we eat alone can be a huge factor in our day-to-day health and energy. Just as important are the long-term health benefits of proper diet. We have plenty of resources available and a great network of referrals should you require more specific advice.
