It is common for Canadians and most people living in and around Toronto to have a primary care physician, a dentist and, depending upon their ages and medical needs, at least one specialist. Yet many individuals still do not have a chiropractor in their corner. This is truly unfortunate, because chiropractic treatment should be a fundamental cornerstone of a regular health routine.
On a yearly basis, we all tend to visit the doctor at least once, and some, possibly more often. The same is true of dental professionals who recommend twice yearly cleaning and evaluation visits. Chiropractors usually suggest that patients come to them more frequently, because chiropractic adjustments help the body work as it was intended.
So why don’t more people take advantage of chiropractic treatment? When we first see patients at the Bayview-Finch Chiropractic Clinic, we ask this question. Most of the time, we hear answers such as:
• they were never introduced to chiropractic care by their physicians;
• they did not believe that chiropractic treatment would work for them (this attitude changes after they realize the benefits!);
• they did not know that chiropractic treatment could address their personal concerns;
• they thought that chiropractic care would be too expensive for them to afford;
• they were concerned that adjustments might hurt.
Of course, after discussing these misconceptions with Dr. Gorchynski and his team, and opening themselves to the advantages of regularly chiropractic care, people change their thought processes very quickly. They come to understand that having a chiropractor in their corner is as smart as having a medical doctor, a dentist, a lawyer, an accountant or any other type of professional.
If you have been hesitant to try chiropractic care, we encourage you to give our Toronto office a call and schedule an appointment. Dr. Gorchynski welcomes new patients, especially those who have never tried chiropractic before. The compassionate, caring staff will address any questions you have about chiropractic care, and you will get the treatment your body has been missing.
