We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Shaian Mollaret has years of training, expertise and experience in helping people achieve optimal health and healing. As the interference is removed from the nervous system with chiropractic care, benefits include relief of symptoms, such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Since not all damage to the nervous system results in pain and dysfunction until years after the degenerative process has begun, we encourage wellness checks to identify any interference in the nervous system which may compromise health and healing and result in symptoms later on in life. Chiropractic care under a trained professional is also used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health, wellness and allow the full expression of your innate wisdom.
At Cafe of Life, we believe it is very important for children to have proper care to ensure proper development. If any of your children have any of these symptoms, they should get checked for subluxations: sleeping problems, ADHD/ADD, colic, learning difficulties, asthma, sleep apnea, bedwetting, constipation/diarrhea, gas/bloating, scoliosis, growing pains, fatigue and ear pain/infections.
In September, 1996 issue of Chiropractic Pediatrics, noted pediatric chiropractor Jennifer Peet, D.C. reports that research indicates that as many as 80% of children’s autonomic nervous systems are out of balance and that many of those are related to a subluxation. In one of the landmark studies reviewed, Dr. G. Gutmann, a German medical doctor, reported in the Journal Manual Medicine in 1987 that many physical problems in more than 1000 infants he studied were caused by blocked nerve impulses at the level of the atlas, or first vertebrae of the neck. The physical problems he noted were central motor impairment, lowered resistance to infections, particularly those of the ear, nose and throat. Gutmann states “Chiropractic and radiological examinations are of decisive importance for diagnosis of the syndrome.”
Gutmann reached two important conclusions:
1) “Observations of motor development and manual control of the (atlas-skull) joint complex should be obligatory after every difficult birth.”
2) With any developmental impairment this joint complex should be examinded and, if required, specifically adjusted.”
He is telling us to have our children checked for subluxation.
Gutmann reports that he has been “constantly amazed how, even with the lightest adjustment with the index finger, the clinical picture normalizes, sometimes gradually, but often immediately.” He goes on to say “The success of adjustment overshadows every other type of treatment.”
There is a neuro-biomechanical need for chiropractic care during pregnancy. The weight gained during pregnancy will increase the demand on the spinal and pelvis muscles and ligaments, fatiguing these structures. Low back and mid-back curves increase in order to compensate for the uneven weight gain, which leads to joint stress and the possible misalignments of sacroiliac and spinal joints. Common symptoms include SI joint dysfunction, sciatica, low back pain, symphysis pubis dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome and pain between the ribs, to name a few. The Webster Technique is used to reduce and correct the stress on the pelvis and uterine ligaments. Each woman is unique, and through our consultation and exam, we can create the best course of care that supports and cares for each woman the way that honours her specific needs. Postural advise and specific home exercises are recommended to support the chiropractic adjustments.
Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) Chiropractic has the ability to support you and your body in achieving greater harmony, balance and adaptability in your life. NSA strengthens the connection with your inner wisdom supporting optimal healing and self awareness, which leads to an effortless wellness lifestyle. This is done with very gentle touches along your spine that result in the brain establishing neural connections that facilitate the healing process. Getting out of symptoms is just the tip of the iceberg for most people. Your health is a result of the choices you make on a daily basis as well as your response to daily life stresses. Stress accumulates and impacts the body and its ability to function optimally. Over time symptoms arise as a reflection of the poor balance of the nervous system signals. These symptoms include: anxiety, depression, weight gain, back pain, neck pain, ear infections, scoliosis, asthma, headaches/migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive problems, poor sleep, hyperactiity, stress disorders, emotional tension and chronic tension to name a few. Anyone can benefit from regular spinal care, including busy parents, children, athletes, weekend warriors, golfers and runners. The goal is to maintain physical, mental and emotional health through all our life stages.
Toxicity is a major concern in the world we live in today. Our bodies are exposed to countless toxins and chemicals that clog our cells and systems and interfere with our body's ability to function properly. Many symptoms we experience may also be caused by toxins, and we have no idea about the link to toxicity. We constantly ingest, inhale, bathe in, and sleep in toxins every day through our exposure to chemicals in body care products, food, household cleaners, children's clothes and toys, mattresses, chemical air fresheners, etc... The best way to assist the body in dealing with this toxic overload is to understand how to minimize our exposure, and maximize our body's ability to detoxify. The benefits of nutritional cleansing can range from healthy, sustainable weight loss, increased energy and mental clarity, enhanced athletic performance and recovery, to improvements in skin, hair and nails. We believe that keeping the body clean internally is vital to our wellbeing, and an important strategy for healthful living.
At Cafe of Life Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Toronto chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Shaian Mollaret can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Toronto community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 647-352-2233 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
