Choose from Three Options
- C$20 for C$200 worth of custom-made orthotics
- C$39 for an initial posture examination and three posture-correcting treatments (C$245 total value)
- C$39 for a 60-minute therapeutic massage (C$90 value)
The 45- to 60-minute posture examination (a $125 value) includes a computerized analysis of posture, nervous-system function, and the spine. After a full evaluation, the doctor utilizes gentle chiropractic-adjustment techniques during three 25-minute posture-correcting treatments (a $120 value), subtly manipulating the vertebrae and realigning the spine.
Moreover, the doctor measures your Q angle and performs a gait analysis before taking a mould of the feet, which may be used to create customized orthotic inserts (a $499 value) that better support arches and encourage better posture.
During the therapeutic massage, the massage therapist targets over-stressed muscles, relieving tension and helping to prepare the body for chiropractic treatments.
The massage option can only be redeemed at the Richmond Hill location; while the postural package and orthotic option can be redeemed at both locations in Richmond Hill and Toronto.
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.
