Back to Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Centre provides experienced, professional and custom chiropractic solutions to address your unique needs. We treat all musculoskeletal conditions, whether you are experiencing body aches and pains, headaches, or muscle tightness and tension. Unlike traditional medicine which can be used to treat pain symptoms, chiropractic care focuses on identifying the underlying condition and addresses the root causes of your symptoms.

Chiropractic care is truly a whole-body approach to wellness, though its focus is primarily on the health and optimal functioning of the central nervous system (CNS). When your central nervous system is performing at its peak, your overall health improves with it! You may be living each day with pain that is treatable. We welcome you and your family of all ages to our practice where we strive to make all our patients feel safe and welcomed.

As of November, I developed an ache in my shoulder while walking 4km per day. Within minutes the minor ache unleashed its fury with consistent fire like pain shootings down my arm and two fingers which also became numb. In the initial assessment, Dr. Dave discovered I had a pinched nerve. Frustration set in during my treatments as the pain persisted at first. However, my own patience and persistence paid off. We all would like a quick fix, but I was looking for any glimmer of hope or some light at the end of the tunnel. As of January, I have improved 90% and can now carry on all normal daily functions as well as continuing my 4km walks each day. I learned that although the doctor does his part, I must too do my part for rehabilitation such as following your advice and exercises.

Marianne and I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to Dr. MacAskill for the amazing level of care you provided during my recent three attacks of acute back pain. You truly went “the extra mile” by making house calls and providing the much needed emotional support when no one in the medical community would do so. You are a true hero of your profession and our community!

The chiropractic treatment Dr. MacAskill performed on me has relieved the pain I was experiencing in my left knee and right ankle. The pain I had before treatment was making it a real effort to walk normally and almost impossible to climb stairs or walk on rough terrain. After my second treatment I could feel less pain and it has continued to improve. I had suffered with this pain for the last three years and other medical treatment only gave me temporary relief. I would highly recommend to anyone to have a chiropractic assessment and follow through with the prescribed treatment to relieve any conditions you may be experiencing.

When I first started having adjustments I did not realize how much they would help me. A trip back from Florida last year was long and uncomfortable since I was unable to sit without pain for longer than an hour. I originally became interested in having chiropractic care as a natural approach rather than turning to surgery to stop the pain in my back and legs. After having been under your care I am able to sit comfortably for long periods of time again. I also realized as time went on, I did not have lower back pain anymore. Another surprise for me was the tremors in my right hand stopped. Thank you for showing concern for not just my health but my family’s as well!
