“I’m just grateful I found a chiropractor who’s gentle – who knows how to find the pain – who helps you deal with it and knows how to make it go away. What more can you ask for?
Some days the pain was so great I would grit my teeth trying to cope. It’s not a very healthy response – but unfortunately it’s a natural one.
Of course, this started to affect my family life. Now, like most people, whenever I’m in pain I’m grumpier than usual – my husband can usually tell. I get this look on my face, snap at people and yell when I shouldn’t. I know when I’m doing it…and I don’t like it.
Even after one treatment I notice a difference in my emotions. I feel hopeful –hopeful that it’s going to improve and not continue to get worse — relief that it IS improving — more comfortable – more peaceful and less grumpy. You know how it is…If Mum ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!”

Chiropractors are regulated primary health care professionals, and they are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.
Chiropractors are highly educated and extensively trained to assess, diagnosis, treat and prevent disorders of the spine, joints, muscle and nervous systems. These disorders may include back pain, neck pain, headaches, referring pain in your arms and legs, etc.
Chiropractic Health Care is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Ontario, with more than 3,100 practicing chiropractors. Almost 2 million Ontarians use the services of a chiropractor each year to help them get back to work, and back to doing the things they love.
