Dr. Brian Moore—a chiropractor with more than 25 years of experience and founder of Moore Chiropractic Group—has long believed in the body's natural ability to heal itself without help from surgery, medication, or extraterrestrial intervention. In addition to performing a wide variety of manual and instrument-assisted chiropractic adjustment techniques, Dr. Moore aims to alleviate back and leg pain with two VAX-D decompression units, which he obtained after travelling to Florida to train with the device's inventor. The procedure is designed to provide short- or long-term relief by slowly pulling apart misaligned discs with advanced biofeedback technology.
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.
Five years after graduating from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Doctor of Chiropractic Haydene Lee opened Bayview North Family Chiropractic. As the name suggests, the practice favors chiropractic services for the entire family—including treatments for ear infections, pregnancy-related woes, and posture correction—but it's not restricted to them.
That's because Dr. Lee has brought aboard a diverse staff of health professionals that includes fellow CMCC alums and Doctors of Chiropractic Robert Grzeskowiak and Lee Bagola. Their knack for treating athletic injuries is made easier by chiropractic tools such as the torque-release technique and COREscore reports that can scan the nervous system for potential problems.
To round out the holistic approach, the clinic offers services from Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Janis Li, massage therapists Tenille Hallman and Deanna Tucker, and therapist Lesley Raubvogel.
Dr. Ali Ipchilar doesn't merely treat pain with chiropractic care. He's made it his life's goal to teach his patients ways to get healthy naturally. To do this, he divulges his five essentials of maximized living: a maximized mind, nerve supply, quality nutrition, oxygen and lean muscle, and minimized toxins. At his office, he shares the proven ways to apply these principles to daily life. He also treats pain and other health concerns with in-depth chiropractic care, that includes consultations and x-rays if necessary along with adjustments.
The Toronto Spine & Sports Clinic revolutionizes treatment of chronic neck and low back pain with their sophisticated non-surgical spinal decompression therapy program, effectively treating conditions such as, sciatica, disc herniations, disc bulge, degenerative discs, and carpal tunnel. The clinic also treats various conditions related to sports injuries with a variety of soft tissue therapies. The active-release technique, for example, uses soft-tissue massage in an attempt to treat ailments ranging from overuse injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow. tendonitis, and sprain and strain injuries including headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome and shoulder pain. For other patients—including those with levels of stress, reproductive problems, and digestive disorders—a skilled doctor might prescribe medical acupuncture, a nerve-stimulation technique that works to balance and regulate the body’s natural systems and responses.
The clinic’s most sought-after treatment, however, might be spinal decompression. Using the same decompression machine featured on CBS’s The Doctors, the staff works to reduce back pain and numbness caused by herniated disks, spinal arthritis, and rolling down hills in a competitive format.
The staff at SmartLife Physiotherapy Clinic, a multi-disciplinary, state-of-the-art clinic, specializes in rehabilitation from motor-vehicle accidents, work-related injuries, and repetitive strain injuries. After determining the extent of the injury, they embark to eradicate symptoms such as whiplash and loss of function with services that range from chiropractic care to naturopathic medicine. They also shoo away stress with acupuncture, massage therapy, and endless loops of kittens yawning.
