Chiropractic Care

When you go to the medical doctor’s office with a problem, you know it’s likely that you’re going to walk out with medication. Though it may make you feel better temporarily, the issue is that it only covers your symptoms rather than addressing what’s causing them. At Health First Family Chiropractic, that’s what makes us different.

How We’re Different

We’re set apart by our multidisciplinary approach utilizing an array of solutions for comprehensive treatments. We’ve developed specific protocols to address issues such as neck pain, back pain, hip pain, sciatica, shoulder pain and headaches. We take a detailed examination to understand how your body is functioning, then correct any imbalances present to restore your health according to the protocol that’s appropriate for you.

The many benefits of chiropractic care that you can experience include

  •  Pain relief
  •  Increased mobility
  •  Improved strength
  •  Functioning at 100%

Multiple Techniques Offered

We’ll discuss which of our techniques is best for you based on your situation. We offer hands-on methods such as Diversified (effective hands on approach), Thompson Drop Table (for those who need a little more movement), and for those who require a more gentle approach, we also offer Activator® tool adjusting.

Please note that there can be some soreness following your treatment which can be iced. We’ll gently ease you into care to ensure that your body doesn’t become overstimulated.

PhysioTherapy

The team at Health First Family Chiropractic offers you exclusive treatment protocols that are based on getting results for your specific condition. If you’re interested in correcting the source of your problem, we will likely recommend the use of physiotherapy in addition to your chiropractic and/or massage treatments.

Physiotherapy is ideal for addressing

  •  Arthritis
  •  Flexibility and mobility limitations
  •  Joint pain
  •  Sciatica
  •  Tendinitis
  •  And more

If you feel that your body is weak, has lost range of motion or you’re in pain, physiotherapy can help you. It’s used as a catalyst to complement our chiropractic care by addressing muscles dysfunction.

Three Avenues for Treatment

We work with your goals when we prescribe your protocol and use a combination of chiropractic and physiotherapy. The physiotherapy performed focuses on active stretching rather than relieving pain. Finally, the stability phase is when you’re feeling better and have had your problem corrected. Ongoing care may be your best bet for staying well, though the choice is up to you.

You may feel better quickly. We like to caution our patients, however, that the injury hasn’t necessarily healed because the area may still be unstable. That’s when it flares up quickly with a simple task like picking something up off the floor or turning your head. Suddenly, your condition flares back up because it was never truly corrected. It’s essential to reach the stability stage, preventing the problem from returning.

Massage Therapy

After a day at the computer or time spent being active, you might feel that your muscles are sore or tight. You may have also noticed that you aren’t quite as flexible as you used to be. If this sounds familiar, you could likely benefit from massage therapy. It’s just one of the solutions available at Health First Family Chiropractic, which may be utilized during your treatment protocol or can be used as a stand-alone service. Our experienced massage therapists can help you feel limber again and be free of discomfort.

Getting Started

We recommend that you meet with Dr. Clay first to ensure that you don’t have any contraindications for massage and that it is the proper avenue to correct your concerns. Then, you can book a session without worry. At your first massage visit, you’ll fill out some brief, simple paperwork and then get started with your massage therapist.

The pricing for massage is as follows, with tax included:

  •  20 minutes: $35.00
  •  30 minutes: $55.00
  •  45 minutes: $75.00
  •  60 minutes: $90.00
  •  90 minutes: $130.00

Contact us today at 647-696-9461 to schedule your time for a massage! Same-day visits are available.

Weight Loss


Understanding ChiroThin a Guided Weight Loss Program in Pickering

ChiroThin

The ChiroThin nutritional support formula, by ChiroNutraceutical, is a natural dietary supplement that has been purposefully designed to go hand-in-hand with the doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program. It contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, blood sugar stabilization, increase in metabolism and detoxification. When combined with a healthy and specific amounts and blends of low glycemic index, anti-inflammatory foods, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, ChiroThin allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and uses it as energy when an individual consumes less calories than they burn in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specifically designed the ChiroThin formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins and cell salts for additional added benefit.

ChiroThin™ Safety Guidelines

  • The ChiroThin™ Program is doctor supervised. Each participant has a follow-up visit with the supervising doctor on a weekly basis. During these doctor-patient encounters, patients will answer questions regarding their overall health, their adherence to the diet, and any struggles or challenges they may be experiencing. Participants are then weighed, receive an 8-point body measurement, and their blood pressure is taken. Doctors use this data to calculate each patient’s BMI. Based on all of this information, participants are then given detailed information and instruction as it pertains to what they need to do for the upcoming week.
  • All patients are prescreened for complicating factors, poor prognostic indicators, and contraindication. If the screening reveals a complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a doctor will discuss the concern with the potential participant.
  • Depending on the severity of the projected clinical implications of the complicating factor or poor prognostic indicator, a person may be prohibited from undergoing the program.
  • If a potential participant’s past medical history contains any contraindications, the participant is prohibited from undergoing the program.
  • The ChiroThin™ Program is based on a low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory (LGAI) diet.
  • The ChiroThin Program includes the consumption of complex carbohydrates and is not a “protein-only” program. Complex carbohydrates prevent excessive ketosis, hyperuricemia, diuresis, electrolyte loss, refeeding edema, and they may improve muscular endurance.
  • While undergoing the six-week program, the participant consumes between twenty-four and thirty ounces of nutrient-dense, low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods per day.
  • The nutritional support formula is specifically developed to aid in fatty acid metabolism, suppressing hunger and cravings, stabilizing blood sugar, and in the mild detoxification of the body.
  • The program is six weeks in duration and falls well within the accepted standards for very low-calorie diets (VLCDs), as established by scientific data. These parameters include: doctor supervision, time on VLCD, dietary modifications, behavioral modifications, nutritional supplementation, and, when indicated, exercise.
  • The program provides a “re-feeding” component during which participants transition back to a “normal” diet composed of LGAI foods.
  • Participants are provided with guidelines, strategies, and tools to help them increase their chances of long-term weight loss success. These tools are based on each patient’s BMR, activity level, appropriate exercise, and continued healthy nutritional consumption.
