What are you proud of in your practice?
I am very proud of all of the wonderful patients that choose and trust us with their health and to help them with their aches and pains. I have been nominated and have won awards for outstanding patient care. I have worked hard to provide a great atmosphere and assembly of health practitioners that are committed to their patients health and well-being. Patient satisfaction is key.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I don't just treat the spine or just do adjustments whereby you're in and out in 5 minutes. I put tremendous amount of care and time into the assessment and treatment of each patient. Treatment plans often consist of a combination of muscle work and manual therapy, adjustments and mobilizations, exercises and stretching instruction, acupuncture, as well as other modalities. Skills are constantly being updated so that patients receive the best and most up-to-date treatment available.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I specialize in a variety of treatments including adjustments and mobilizations of joints of the body, as well as myofascial release, shockwave therapy, and cold laser therapy. I have been doing these techniques for over 5 years. Many of these treatments are unique to practitioners in Toronto.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I like treating all cases as each one usually presents in it's own different way. I do see a lot of back, neck, and postural issues which are extremely common. These often respond quite well to manual therapy and often reduce the need for medication. I do like challenging cases whereby the patient has tried a number of other treatments with limited results. I try my best to give the patient the best treatment possible.
