COVID-19 update: As of May 26th 2020, the Ministry of Health has declared chiropractors can return to work for all patients. I will be in proper PPE for your treatment and you will be asked to sign a declaration that you are feeling well and do not have any symptoms related to COVID-19 or contact with anyone who does.

Details of services provided
Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for many common complaints such as lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. Treatment may include adjustments, mobilizations, gentle contact with a joint, soft tissue techniques such as manual release therapy, and other specific chiropractic techniques.
There are no added costs for different techniques used (excluding acupuncture). Manual release therapy is very similar to ART soft tissue techniques and is included in your visit should Dr. Matt feel this is necessary and you agree to it.
Acupuncture uses single use sterile needles that target various muscles to help stimulate proper function, recovery, and mobility of a muscle or group of muscles. The needles are incredibly thin, comfortable and treatments are designed to be effective and concise. Anatomical western-based approaches to needling are used including electro-acupuncture to stimulate needles to improve the function of a muscle.
*Please note that as per regulations in Ontario, Dr. Matt is licensed to perform acupuncture under chiropractic treatment (not an acupuncturist) and any acupuncture is billed as a chiropractic modality. Insurance companies will only reimburse acupuncture treatment under chiropractic extended health benefits and your invoice will reflect this.
Orthotics are used to help add stability and structure to the feet to support proper foot and ankle movement. They can be useful for dealing with plantar fasciitis, ankle pain, foot pain, lower leg and knee pain as well as back pain. People that work long hours on their feet or on hard surfaces have found great results with orthotic use. All orthotics are made by The Orthotic Group in Markham Ontario. Orthotics can be fitted for use in most shoes, even including women's dress flats (very thin).
Includes: exam, foam casting, 1 pair of custom orthotics, and follow up fitting.
What to expect when seeing Dr. Matt
Knowledge is power and Dr. Matt wants you to be prepared even before you step into the office.
Every situation is unique but this is what you can typically expect when you visit Dr. Matt.
First visit (approx. 45 min)
You will be asked to fill out an intake form.
Dr. Matt will perform a comprehensive medical history where he will ask questions about your symptoms, general health, and past medical history to gain a thorough understanding of you and your complaints.
Dr. Matt will proceed with a comprehensive physical examination including a neurological assessment, muscle and joint assessment, orthopedic assessment and any special manual testing indicated.
If Dr. Matt feels that x-rays are required before treatment can be delivered he will explain why and if you agree these can be done on site. Taking x-rays is NOT a normal part of the intake process but specific conditions may warrant them for patient safety. If this is the case it will be clearly explained why they are needed.
Treatment is often offered on the first visit whenever possible. Dr. Matt wants to spend the appropriate time needed to fully assess all the findings. There may be situations where he decides to delay treatment. If this is the case, he will discuss this with you.
Discussion before treatment
Dr. Matt will one-on-one give you a verbal report including a diagnosis where he will explain what he found and what he thinks he can do to help you.
You will be given all your treatment options including time, cost, and expectations as well as be given the chance to discuss any questions.
You will be given a consent form to sign before any treatment is completed.
Treatment will be provided as needed.
Regular visit (15 minute appointments)
You will be in a closed door treatment room where you and Dr. Matt can discuss your progress, questions, and condition(s).
Treatment will consist of a variety of chiropractic techniques including Diversified and Thompson technique, Activator, Manual Release Therapy, Thumper VMTX Vibration Therapy, mobilizations and sustained contact treatment.
All treatment will be discussed and agreed upon between you and Dr. Matt before any treatment, and you are entitled to change your decision about treatment at any point during your care with Dr. Matt.
