Customer Reviews


I broke my back from a fall at work some 26 years ago. Since that time I have seen countless therapists and doctors as a result of my ongoing back problems. I can say with all honesty that Dr. Akhavan is by far my favourite physiotherapist. He is knowledgeable, professional and very personable. He makes every effort to make the treatment and rehabilitation process as pleasant as possible while utilizing his vast knowledge, expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the best possible treatment for all his clients. I am also extremely grateful that he had the foresight to be one of the few practices to have a genuine spinal decompression machine. His machine literally saved my life. My back injury had debilitated me to the point where I was virtually paralyzed by pain and could not stand, sit or walk without screaming in agony. My last resort before contemplating surgery was to undergo spinal decompression therapy with Dr. Akhavan. 10 sessions later I was able to go back to work and even began working out again. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Akhavan as a person and a doctor and would highly recommend his practice to anyone who is suffering.

Mersad Khatami

I am completely satisfied with the treatment received and the professionalism of Dr. Akhavan and his staff. With 3 bulging disks and sciatica nothing else I have tried for 5 years provided any relief. After 6 decompression treatments, I was pain-free, and after 12 treatments my symptoms disappeared. I have referred 2 neighbours to Dr. Akhavan and highly recommend his practice.

Mark Egerton

After 1.5 years of intense sciatica pain and being incorrectly treated for a hamstring injury by a physiotherapist, acupuncturist, and another Chiro – I came across Dr. Akhavan’s spinal decompression treatment. In the first appointment, he observed immediately that I had a disc herniation, not a hamstring injury, and I had an MRI to confirm it. Quickly after starting treatment, I started to see improvements. Today, I am fully recovered and was able to avoid the medical direction of epidurals and back surgery – which is where I was heading. I am so grateful for Dr. Akhavan and his exceptional knowledge and tools for healing. He’s professional, kind, and most importantly – effective. Permanent spinal healing is possible with this brilliant Chiropractor and pain does not need to be accepted!

Chelsea Zysman

I can’t speak more highly of Doctor Ali Akhavan. When I first visited I was suffering from chronic pain for over a year, seeing everyone I could to try solve the issue. In a very short time with Doctor Ali, I was able to get a diagnosis and treatment plan. After only a month of treatment, my pain had reduced by more than 80%. At the end of my treatment, I was pain free and slowly building up what I could do through movement. Anyone with a herniated disk or spinal issues should see Dr. Ali Akhavan

Amanda Brown

Dr. Akhavan is the best chiropractor I’ve ever been to. His spinal decompression therapy is truly amazing. For over a year, I spent a lot of time in bed because standing up was painful. I used a walker to get around. A section of my lumbar spine felt ‘squashed’. Dr. Akhavan diagnosed Spinal Stenosis and started me on spinal decompression therapy. After one treatment, I stood up straight without pain. I’ve had four out of six treatments and I now walk around the house and go to shops just like everyone else! After each treatment, I can walk further, unaided. It is difficult for me not to use superlatives to describe the effectiveness of decompression therapy and Dr Akhavan’s skill, intelligence and kindness . This man has changed my life. Thank you.
