Choose Between Two Options
- $39 for an initial posture-and-gait examination and three posture-correcting treatments (a $245 total value). Customers will also receive a $200 voucher toward the purchase of custom-designed orthotics.
- $39 for a 60-minute therapeutic massage (a $90 value)
The 45- to 60-minute posture-and-gait examination (a $125 value) includes a computerized analysis of nervous-system function and measurement of the q-angle, which is the angle made by the quadriceps between the hip joint and knee. After visually observing patients' gaits, the doctor utilizes chiropractic-adjustment techniques during three 25-minute posture-correcting treatments (a $120 value), subtly manipulating the vertebrae and realigning the spine. The doctor can also take an orthotic mould of the feet, which may be used to create customized orthotic inserts (a $499 value) that better support arches and encourage better posture. The massage option can only be redeemed at the Richmond Hill location; while the postural package can be redeemed at both the Richmond Hill and Toronto locations. Therapeutic massages target over-stressed muscles, relieving tension and helping to prepare the body for chiropractic treatments.
The Posture Clinic
In the early 2000s, Doctor of Chiropractic Guy Bahar of The Posture Clinic began to notice a disturbing trend in the postures of his patients. Heads started to jut forward, upper backs hunched over, and chests caved inward. Dr. Bahar theorized that motions associated with a technology-heavy lifestyle—including slumping in front of computer screens, hunching over to read handheld devices, and lugging around heavy pieces of particle accelerators—was steadily causing the public to develop poor postural habits over time. As a chiropractor, he believed that these habits were interfering with the nervous system in general and the spine in particular, inhibiting healthy nerve function and causing chronic pain or fatigue as a result. His signature posture-correcting regimen can correct these conditions with a number of different treatment modalities, each of which promotes neuromuscular health and encourages patients to maintain a towering posture.
Initial assessments can begin with a battery of imaging scans, which can use thermography, x-rays, or surface EMG scans to gain invaluable insight into the body's structure and function. From there, Dr. Bahar and his staff of therapists can treat patients' particular conditions with muscle-relaxing massages, acupuncture sessions, and chiropractic micro-adjustments that completely avoid twisting the head or the neck.
