Chiropractic Care Testimonials

Real Testimonials from Real Patients!

Marina C. Comments

I have been a patient at the Merivale Chiropractic & Massage Clinic for about 8 months and it has been an extremely positive experience for me. Dr. Tatyana and Dr. Leo are both very helpful in explaining what needs to be done, suggesting the right course of action and are quick to answer any questions or concerns. They make you feel special and welcome, and are genuinely invested in your health and healing. They provide progress exams and reports regularly to let you know how you are progressing.
I had some posture issues and then developed vertigo which I had for about a month. When I mentioned my symptoms to Dr. Tatyana she told me there was a treatment that could help me feel better and help with my symptoms.

She performed a treatment called the Epley Maneuver and within 1 treatment my vertigo had improved by 80%. I no longer need to take the pills that my Doctor prescribed to me.
At The Merivale Chiropractic and Massage clinic the front desk staff is amazing they are just as much dedicated to your health and healing as the Doctors. They are extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Tatyana, Dr. Leo and staff are so kind and knowledgeable that I don’t mind traveling 24 km back and forth to get my adjustments, even though I have a Chiropractic clinic a block away from my house. I highly recommend the Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic.

Lauren B. Comments

I used to go to chiropractors for my back pain and they helped relieve that. However, it wasn’t until I was taught by the doctors at the Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic that chiropractic is about more than just back pain, it’s about whole body function. I started to realize that maybe some of my other issues could be helped as well. I began getting regular chiropractic adjustments (multiple times a week instead of only when my back hurt or once a month) and, as before my back didn’t hurt but there has been more then I even expected!

I haven’t had a migraine in 9 months and I stopped using my asthma inhaler about 5 months ago.

I was immune-compromised my whole life, but I’ve barely gotten sick in 9 months and my IBS has cleared up in the last 6 months. I used to have to take 2 Tylenol 2’s or 3’s to control the pain from my menstrual cramps. In the last 6 months they are lighter and usually I don’t need any drug based pain management at all. I get an adjustment and my pain is manageable all because I’ve allowed my body to function properly and all without drugs.

The only thing I’ve changed since May 2012 was getting regular chiropractic adjustments. I am a firm believer in chiropractic and I can confirm that it definitely is about more than just pain treatment.

I’ve always believed in Chiropractic from previous injuries and strongly believed in the healthy lifestyle it promotes. I used to suffer from extreme low back pain and Chiropractic has helped in this area and more! I thought it would be beneficial to work for at a Chiropractic Clinic to watch others get healthy also, and to watch their journey.

Since being at the Merivale Chiropractic Clinic I’ve learned so much about how important chiropractic is to whole body health. It’s not just about making your back and neck feel better. Since I started getting my regular adjustments I’ve been able to get relief from headaches, migraines, severe cramps, and digestive issues (and that’s just my own personal story!). Now I know that I’m not the only one.

The thing I am the most appreciative of is how positive and health minded everyone is. I’ve been able to increase my health dramatically by not only getting my regular adjustments, but also by being part of the Metagenics and diet health product families. Not only am I suffering from less ailments but I’m losing weight and learning to live healthier, and all because of the support and encouragement I get from the clinic doctors and staff, along side my friends and family.

Initially I had no idea that this is where I would end up because I really didn’t know too much about chiropractic. Since learning more about chiropractic care I LOVE the idea of letting God’s masterpiece, the body, do just what it was created to do. Chiropractic promotes holistic health, not just a topical solution to it.

Since being at the clinic I’ve learned that the spine affects every single part of the body and no one is immune! I’ve also learned that you are not too young to look closer at your health and that small changes can make a BIG difference. I’ve been challenged to look at my health in a completely different light: from the inside out, not from the outside in!
