Head and Neck pain often occur from tension and repetitive muscle strain.

Poor posture, overuse, auto accidents and sports injury are common causes that can affect regions near the neck, including the head, jaw, shoulder and upper arms. The term “stiff” neck is often used to describe the pain that occurs when moving your neck, especially from side to side.

Injuries such as jaw locking or pain in the jaw while eating, migraine or stress-related headaches, locked-up neck, text neck syndrome, neck disc herniation and arthritis can be successfully managed and healed through chiropractic care.

Absolutely amazing! I’m so glad that I found a place where I felt comfortable and Ramy does excellent work!

I was suffering from severe pain around my neck and down to my back for a year, which was caused by hard physical work and incorrect lifestyle. The pain had limited my activities considerably. Prior to me, my family had a very satisfactory experience with the Clinic, and were especially talking about Dr. Maryam Hassanzadeh's expertise, experience, and devotion to ... Read on Google

As an athlete, I've been seeing Ghaith for a hip impingement injury that was restricting me from sports/workouts. Ghaith helped me get back in the action! Its always a pleasure seeing him, as he's friendly & enthusiastic, he genuinely enjoys explaining the mechanics of the injury and discussing the big picture theory (which I love as a bit of a nerd & athlete). Thanks Ghaith & Kent Chiro-Med! Read on Google


No. Chiros are legislated as primary health care professionals in every province in Canada. This means that patients can consult them directly. However, we often work closely with medical health care professionals and doctors, many of whom refer to chiropractors when they believe chiropractic treatment will help alleviate a patient’s condition. Similarly, chiropractors frequently refer to medical doctors when necessary.

Chiropractic is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.

We are one of the few clinics in Ottawa who do Shockwave Therapy which is a therapeutic device designed to increase the growth of new blood vessels, break down scar tissue and calcification. The added circulation will promote tissue healing in the injured site. Shockwave Therapy sends high-pressure sound waves into the tissues in pulses. Conditions such as calcification of Achilles tendon, rotator cuff injuries, Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and chronic myofascial pain syndrome can be successfully treated via Shockwave Therapy. Only chiropractors at Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic can perform this treatment. Shockwave Therapy may be claimed under your chiropractic insurance.

We’re always very excited to bring new advanced medical technology to our clinic. We will announce the arrival of “Spinal Decompression” through Facebook, website and email when it is finally installed within our facility. A lot of family doctors choose specific clinics to refer their patients for Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression. It is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain, neck pain, sciatica, spinal stenosis and cervical radiculopathy. Spinal decompression works by stretching the spine. Subsequently, this modifies the force and position of the spine, taking pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. In turn, this retraction helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

The model of decompression bed we are using is Triton DTS®. Visit their company’s website to learn more about it.

The more acute the injury is, the more frequent you may need Chiropractic sessions. That’s because we want to stimulate healing as soon as possible before the body starts to adapt to the injury erroneously and lead to more problems. If you are coming to the clinic for preventative care, a one-a-month treatment at your chiropractor’s office should be sufficient.

Patients who experience chiropractic care reported less stiffness, less pain, better sleep, a greater sense of relief, that their body feels “less tense”. Endorphins are released immediately after a chiropractic adjustment which leads to all these positive outcomes. Many people choose chiropractic care because it is not invasive, non-pharmaceutical and very safe.
