- C$59 for an initial posture-and-gait examination and five posture-correcting treatments (a C$325 value)
With each option, customers will also receive a $200 voucher toward the purchase of custom made orthopedic sandals or shoes (full cost $499).
The 45- to 60-minute posture-and-gait examination (a $125 value) includes a computerized analysis of posture 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 25-minute posture-correcting treatments (a $40 value each), subtly manipulating the vertebrae and realigning the spine. The doctor can also take a custom made orthopedic shoes or sandals mould of the feet, which may be used to create customized inserts that better support arches and encourage good posture.
If you decide to purchase any additional treatments, you have the legal right to change your mind within three days and receive a refund. No refunds will be offered for the advertised treatment or any treatment performed 72 hours after the advertised treatment.
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.
