Not sure if chiropractic care is right for you? Similar to how not all restaurants provide the same experience, quality, and value, not all chiropractors are the same. Find out more about our unique approach.
Dr. Joshua Gelber has been practicing as a Chiropractor in mid town Toronto since 2004. He has helped hundreds of patients get out of pain, reclaim their health, and gain a new lease on life. He may even be the Best Chiropractor in Toronto.
But we’ll let you decide.
We asked Dr. Josh to give us some of his best tips on how to live pain free and improve strength and fitness in Toronto.
Here’s what the doc had to say:
If you want to eliminate, for example back pain and live in Toronto, know that pain is a feedback loop created between your brain and nervous system. Pain tells you when not to move a body part that’s been injured so it can heal, for example.
In times of stress, this messaging can become hyperactive and pain signals can go wild. All forms of pain (this is not limited to back pain, it can include headaches or neck pain, and any type of pain) can indicate your nervous system is reacting to stress.
Many stressors can be causing your pain. Injuries or traumas are the obvious ones. But don’t discount emotional stress. Chemical stressors from toxins in the environment or a poor diet are also ones to watch out for. Finally, sitting too much or being inactive takes its toll on your health as well.
Even sitting in traffic can be the cause of a lot of headaches.
The point is all of the above can cause alignment issues that prevent your nervous system from doing its job: being the “command center” for healing. As a Chiropractor in Toronto, I help restore function so your body can heal and manage stress the way it’s supposed to.
While many Chiropractors in Toronto only focus on your symptoms, they tend to treat only that area. While this will give you symptom relief from your health challenges such caused by neck, back, shoulder pain and even pregnancy related back-pain, the pain almost always comes back!
At my Chiropractor office, I use a number of tests and state-of-the-art technologies. Once I properly diagnose the true cause of your pain…only then can we have the recipe for your custom care plan and produce the kind of results you want from your Chiropractor.
In my experience, the patients who have the best outcomes are not only the ones who make regular trips to my office, but also change their lifestyle. That means eating healthier and being more active. And if you can get your spouse and your kids involved, it makes it so much easier.
(TIP: Have a cranky child or infant? Try cutting back on the sugar they eat. You can thank me later!)
There’s never been a better time to raise healthy children in this amazing city I call home – Toronto. With so many activities and outdoor parks and splash pads…take advantage. As a father, I’ve seen just how healthy a child who receives Chiropractic care can be. I love adjusting kids and they love it too! It’s a gift of health you can give them from an early age.
Lastly, do you love running? Where’s your favourite place to run in Toronto? Let me know.
Running is a beautiful form of exercise. I run a little myself. But it also carries a high risk of injury. If I assess your movement, I could bring your musculoskeletal structure into better alignment which helps “injury proof” your body to some extent.
