We’re sorry you had a negative experience with a chiropractor elsewhere. Be reassured that our chiropractors at Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic are trained to be excellent at two things: quality of care and customer service. We receive lots of positive acclamation from many new patients who have been before to another chiropractic facility and were disappointed by their services. Our mission is to restore confidence in the patients who did not had a good experience with chiropractic before.
We do not perform X-rays for every new patients, nor do we take full spine radiography. We understand the negative impact of radiation on the body. We rely heavily on diagnostic skills, experience and refined clinical judgments. All chiropractors and physiotherapists are required to take part in continuing education every year to stay up-to-date with the medical research and new treatment strategies.
We also do not follow procedures of a monotone/standardized treatment plan that is based on adjustments only and that is limited to 5 minutes, misleading patients to the need of lifetime of adjustments. Our approach relies on specific treatment plans that are unique to the individual and his/her case (frequency and total number of visits determined clearly; ie. twice a week for 8 visits for example). After completion of the treatment plan, we conduct a re-evaluation to assess for progress or deterioration of the condition. We also rely heavily on teamwork with medical doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, lawyers, massage therapists, nutritionists, and fitness trainers.

Our fees are non-negotiable. Chiropractic services can be paid through the use of your private personal/group health insurance. Private insurance companies such as Sunlife, Manulife, BlueCross, Great West, and so many more cover chiropractic. It’s your responsibility to determine how much is covered for chiropractic care by contacting your insurance company directly. We do not do direct insurance billing.
X-rays are paid through the use of OHIP and are done at any branch of the CMA laboratory. You need a chiropractor or medical doctor’s X-ray request form to be eligible for the coverage.
Of course. Chiropractic care is very safe for pregnant women.
Manual spinal manipulations performed by chiropractors target specific inflamed joint capsules of the spine by improving segmental vertebral mobility. Joints can be inflamed due to poor posture, scoliosis, arthritis, sports injuries, pregnancy and etc. A spinal manipulation increases pain tolerance by affecting primary afferent neurons from surrounding spinal tissues, the motor control system and pain processing. It leaves you feeling lighter, more flexible and feeling better. The “popping sound” is medically called “cavitation”. It is harmless and is a result of a gas escaping from an adjusted joint, improving its mobility and reducing its irritation through normalizing the joint capsule’s internal pressure.
Unlike the high velocity low amplitude settings of a spinal manipulation, a spinal or joint mobilization is a gentle, often oscillatory, passive movement applied to a spinal region or joint so as gently to increase the passive range of motion of that segment or region. This treatment is an alternative option to when spinal or joint manipulation is contraindicated in conditions like osteoporosis, spinal or joint fusion, post-surgical recovery, pre-existing spinal damage, severe arthritis and etc
Chiropractic mobilization styles include: Cox Flexion-distraction (gentle stretching), toggle drop (using crossed hands).

Chiropractic care is probably one of the most popular methods of treatment that you can try to heal any pain you are having due to spinal injuries, sports trauma, car accidents, pregnancy-related back pain, headaches and so much more! What’s interesting about chiropractic is that we can help you reach your optimal well-being without having to use any medication or recruit to any surgical procedures.
The chiropractic treatments are relaxing, safe and efficient. There are many medical studies supporting the use of chiropractic care if you are suffering from acute or chronic spinal, joints or muscle pain.
We understand that choosing an excellent chiropractor is challenging. Our facility is state-of-the-art and our chiropractors are trained to:
1. Treat only musculoskeletal conditions and some nerve pain such carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica
2. Order x-rays only when medically necessary (we do not endorse full spine x-rays)
3. Limit treatment plans to the prognosis of a particular condition; the practitioners do not encourage long treatment plans or excessive visits
4. Rely on research and evidence to support their treatment plan and do not endorse scientifically unsupported claims

“OCF-18… OCF-1… Did you contact your adjuster? We need your policy and claim number, sir.” Sometimes, these mumbo-jumbo terminologies can be hard for patients to understand. Patients who are involved in car accidents have separate case management than regular patients who attend our clinic and......
