  • I noticed a dramatic difference in the amount of pain and headaches I was having.

    Almost a year ago, I suffered an exercise-related injury to my mid-chest, neck and shoulder area. My doctor was unable to find a cure and he gave me prescription painkillers and anti-inflammatory pills. After nearly two months of taking pills twice a day every day, I did not see a difference and decided to consult a chiropractor instead. Dr. Akhavan diagnosed me and pointed out that I had two ribs and part of my collarbone out of alignment. Knowing this helped to explain why the pain would not go away and why I had such terrible headaches, which also kept me up at night. After about a month of treatment, including Active Release Therapy (ART) and light exercise prescribed by Dr Ali, I noticed a dramatic difference in the amount of pain and headaches I was having. I was able to finally sleep through the night and now, almost two months later, I have not had a single headache and very little chest pain when I over-stress myself. I am very glad to know that there are other alternatives to expensive medications. I am also relieved now that I am able to get back to my regular lifestyle and a normal sleeping pattern. I highly recommend Dr. Akhavan, as he is a very dedicated professional and a kind and exceptional chiropractor.

  • I can now actually live my life without daily back aches.

    My mother has a bad back, as does most of her family, and my father has arthritis in his back. He is now almost completely hunched over. So when I developed a bad back about 10 years ago, I thought it was just par for the course. My back got progressively worse over the years, and my life began revolving around ‘good’ or ‘bad’ back days. If I went to a restaurant I had to make sure that the chairs were a certain type so my back wouldn’t get sore while eating. Finally, I woke up one morning and I couldn’t move my neck or my upper back. Something was out. I went to see Dr. Ali that day. The difference in my back and overall health since has been unbelievable. I had just assumed that I would have to live this way for the rest of my life. I stopped taking all those pills by the end of the first month of adjustments and I have never looked back. I can now actually live my life without daily back aches. I feel minimal or no pain at all. I can go out all day, have dinner at any restaurant and then go to work, without having to rest for a couple hours on the heating pad. I have also noticed health benefits in other areas of my life as well. I have more energy and have been able to combat the common cold a lot better than ever before. I know I sound like I am gushing – I am just so relieved to be finally living pain free!

  • In just five to seven ART sessions with Dr. Akhavan, my knee is healed and I am able to do all the activities I did previous to my injury!

    I had the most excruciating pain in my left knee from an injury caused by overzealous gardening. An X-Ray of my knee showed no bone damage, so I thought it might possibly be a torn meniscus and subsequently made an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon. In talking with my neighbour, I heard about ART (Active Release Therapy). After resourcing information on the internet regarding this method of manipulating scar tissue, I decided to give it a try as I really had nothing to lose. I’m amazed to say that in just five to seven ART sessions with Dr. Akhavan, my knee is healed and I am able to do all the activities I did previous to my injury.

  • I don’t know what people like me would do without people like you to keep us on track!

    Dr. Akhavan, thank you for helping me get my hip flexor stretched out. You definitely hit on the problem, because the relief I am already feeling is incredible. I have felt like I have a steel band stretched across my right hip and lower back for months. You zeroed in on it like that! I have been feeling unbalanced when I walk or run – like I had no strength in my right leg – no torque. That already feels like 75 per cent better. I don’t know what people like me would do without people like you to keep us on track!
