For over 121 years, Chiropractic care has been effective in the treatment of lower back pain, upper back pain, shoulder or neck pain, leg pain, sciatica (sciatic nerve pain), spinal stenosis, herniated discs, slipped discs, degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, and any other chronic pain or stiffness. Your Chiropractor considers all aspects of your current condition, and promotes health and wellness without the use of drugs or surgery.
At Family Wellness Clinic, our licensed Chiropractors are Dr. Lott and Dr. Princiotta, both registered members of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario and trained acupuncturists. We believe that pain treatment and pain prevention come from assessing both cause and effect, so we provide full body assessment and treatment. Our Chiropractors evaluate your overall condition, and recommend whatever treatments, alone or in combination with other therapies, that will accomplish your wellness goals. They may also recommend a change in diet, stretches or strengthening exercises, or other natural methods that focus on you attaining your best health.
Foot Care Specialist (Chiropodist)
Foot ailments may be painful, and could affect your mobility. Over time, as your body compensates to ease the pain, these foot ailments also affect other areas of your body, including your knees and hips. If you have ankle, heel, or foot pain, including plantar fasciitis, ingrown toenails, heel spurs, athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, or other painful foot ailments, then our Foot Care Specialist can help to assess and manage your condition.
At Family Wellness Clinic, our licensed Chiropodist is Tony Hu, who is registered with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario . Note that he is a Chiropodist, and not a Podiatrist. Chiropody and Podiatry offer similar skillsets; however, a Chiropodist can perform surgery on the foot below the ankle but, unlike Podiatry, bone surgery is not performed. Chiropodist care is not covered by OHIP, therefore most EHC plans will be reimbursed by your EHC insurer from your first visit.
Tony Hu specializes in diabetic foot care, and is also certified in custom orthotics and fitting/dispensing custom compression stockings.
Registered Massage Therapy (RMT)
If you need relief from chronic pain, want to reduce muscle tension and stress, or simply have a few moments of relaxation, then a massage therapy session can help. Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, connective tissue (ligaments and tendons), and joints. It can also promote lymphatic drainage, increase circulation, stimulate the nervous system, rehabilitate injuries, and reduce anxiety.
Massage therapy is helpful for chronic pain from such conditions as headaches and migraines, depression and anxiety, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and asthma and emphysema. Massage therapy can also help acute and chronic stages of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and fibromyalgia.
At Family Wellness Clinic, our Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are trained in many massage therapy methods, including hot stone massage, Thai massage, deep tissue massage, pre and post-natal (pregnancy), and sports massage. We also offer cupping, and paraffin wax therapy on the hands and feet to alleviate arthritic and carpal tunnel pain. We believe that massage therapy and Chiropractic services complement each other. Once your body is properly aligned, regular massage therapy visits provide muscle therapy to help your muscles retain their correct positions.
All of our qualified and certified family wellness practitioners focus on whole body health and wellness. Our goal is to enhance your overall wellbeing and your quality of life. Our first objective is pain treatment, through our Chiropractic, massage therapy, or foot care treatments. Our specialists may recommend a wellness plan that includes a combination of these treatments, such as Chiropractic and massage therapy sessions, as they complement each other; the Chiropractic sessions realign your spine and joints into their correct positions, and the massage therapy sessions provide muscle therapy to support your spine and joints’ new positions.
Once immediate concerns are assessed and treatment begins, the next step is ongoing pain prevention and increased mobility. This step means concentrating on your body as a whole, including stretches and strengthening techniques, reviewing and changing your diet, and adding specific exercises as well. We believe that treating the whole body is the key to helping you achieve your best state of health and wellness.
