A Chiropractic Assessment at iWellness.ca Rehab & Wellness Clinc is used to diagnose your physical issues, and to determine the best course of treatment. Doctor Balkansky will carefully examine your medical history as well as provide a thorough physical examination to assess your needs. A follow up Chiropractic Assessment is also required every six months as mandated by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario.
The physical examination may include:
Range of motion assessment
During this time, you may also wish to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have with Dr. Balkansky. After determining a diagnosis and treatment plan, Dr. Balkansky will usually begin treatment that same day. While some patients find immediate relief of their ailments, the number of sessions you will need to get back to being you again varies on a case by case, and patient to patient basis.
A Chiropractic Adjustment is also known as a chiropractic manipulation, or, a manual manipulation, and is a common therapeutic treatment for joint or lower back pain. Chiropractic Adjustments can give you relief from, neck and low back pain, migraines, sciatic nerve pain, arthritis, stress and irritability, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia, just to name a few conditions. The aim of a chiropractic adjustment is to improve range of motion, function, and maintain nerve irritability.

Registered Massage Therapy:
Massage Therapy is proven to increase blood circulation, reduce pain and inflammation, speed up healing, reduce headaches, and remove knots. Massage Therapy improves the circulation of blood in the body by bringing oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, while alleviating muscle
tension and pain. It can improve flexibility and mobility, and helps to eliminate lactic acid and other waste by-products from the body, which in turn minimizes muscle pain & stiffness. Massage therapy also helps in relieving stress and many other conditions.
