My name is Nalinie and I am 50 years old. In May, 2009 I was diag­noses with breast can­cer. Surgery was done in June, 2009. In August, 2009 I went to the doc­tor for a fol­low up, and was told that I have to do chemother­apy. I refuse because of finan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties. In August of 2009 our heav­enly father guided me to Vaughan Chi­ro­prac­tic. There I met Dr. Gus, a very kind, help­ful and com­pas­sion­ate per­son. When I was told by him that he will help me, and I don’t have to do chemother­apy, I burst into tears, because I know God had save my life. I started adjust­ments every Tues­day and Thurs­day. I am still doing adjust­ments, but only on Tues­days, and guess what! I am feel­ing as strong as ever and I am 100 per­cent healthy with­out tak­ing any med­ica­tion. Thanks to Dr. Gus, Dr. Jacqui and staff for sav­ing my life. Thanks so much for your kind sup­port, encour­age­ment, advice and most of all your prayers. I really appre­ci­ate your help. God bless you guys, and will con­tinue to bless Vaughan chi­ro­prac­tic, that the door will always be open to save many other lives like myself. Once again thank you so much and God Bless You.

I first came to Vaughan Chi­ro­prac­tic because of a desire to improve my health. My health had been a prob­lem for me for over 6 years. I couldn’t sit or stand for long peri­ods. I also expe­ri­enced a lim­ited range of motion in my low back, and an irri­ta­ble stom­ach. Now that I have been under reg­u­lar chi­ro­prac­tic care, one of the most sur­pris­ing improve­ments has been in my abil­ity to digest foods. My stom­ach is no longer irri­ta­ble, and I am able to eat with­out wor­ry­ing that I will irri­tate my stom­ach. — My advice for some­one who is new to chi­ro­prac­tic is: Real­ize that your spine and nerves can affect your whole body…chiropractic is NOT just for back problems.

Before start­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care, I had strug­gled with low back pain for over 6 months and my quest for relief is what brought me to Vaughan Chi­ro­prac­tic. Chi­ro­prac­tic care is just what I needed and since I began care, I have noticed a tremen­dous improve­ment in my low back dis­com­fort. Along with the marked improve­ment in my low back pain, I also have a feel­ing of increased energy, decreased body stiff­ness and bet­ter pos­ture as well. I am very sat­is­fied with the care I have received and I am now able to do activ­i­ties of daily liv­ing, such as get­ting out of bed with ease. My advice for you is, “Focus on total health rather than just the area of discomfort.

Robert Gillis –Right Fielder, Toronto Maple Leafs Base­ball Share

Robert Gillis ML BaseballI came to Dr. Tsi­a­palis last off sea­son with severe back pain and fatigue. I had been shut down from the gym and my social life was hin­dered by my pain. The Vaughan Chi­ro­prac­tic team had worked with many ath­letes and I knew I was in good hands.

Fol­low­ing our first ses­sion together, I instantly felt bet­ter– what a relief! After a few ses­sions, my pain had sub­sided and my strength in the weight room had returned. My improved flex­i­bil­ity, range of motion and above all piece of mind led to great off sea­son train­ing sched­ule. Within a few months I had never felt bet­ter and enjoyed my best sea­son with the Toronto Maple Leafs. With my back feel­ing bet­ter it allowed me to rotate though my entire swing– increas­ing my home run total.

I con­tin­ued treat­ment through­out the sea­son and it cer­tainly helped me main­tain endurance and strength. I would highly rec­om­mend the ser­vices pro­vided by Dr. Tsi­a­palis as I the proof is not only in my stats but by how I feel every day.

Chi­ro­prac­tic for Athletes

Ath­letes have spe­cial needs and our cen­tre under­stands the spe­cific nature and require­ments needed to help you per­form opti­mally. Whether it’s dur­ing the sea­son or in the off-​season, Chi­ro­prac­tic care is becom­ing the com­pet­i­tive advan­tage that many ath­letes are now seek­ing. When your body is in bet­ter align­ment, your ner­vous sys­tem is finely tuned, all piston’s are fir­ing!!!! This leads to bet­ter per­for­mance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.

A research study con­ducted by Drs. Anthony Lauro and Brian Mouch, pub­lished in the jour­nal of Chi­ro­prac­tic research and Clin­i­cal Inves­ti­ga­tion, 1991, indi­cated chi­ro­prac­tic care might improve ath­letic per­for­mance by as much as 16.7% over a two week period. The report also con­cluded that subluxation-​free ath­letes react faster, coor­di­nate bet­ter, exe­cute fine move­ments with improved accu­racy and pre­ci­sion, amount­ing to an over­all bet­ter athlete.

Top pro­fes­sion­als in every sport are under chi­ro­prac­tic care to increase health and per­for­mance. The fol­low­ing are just a few sports stars under chi­ro­prac­tic care.

Tiger Woods — The World’s Great­est Golfer

Tiger Woods1I’ve been going to the chi­ro­prac­tor for as long as I remem­ber. It’s as impor­tant to my game as prac­tic­ing my swing!”

Lance Arm­strong — Seven Time Tour de France Winner

lance armstrong1Seven Time Tour de France win­ner Lance Arm­strong has been receiv­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care since Jan­u­ary of 1999, help­ing him to keep his body together for the harsh demands of the Tour de France. After last year’s Tour de France, Lance said that he could not have won with­out his chiropractor’s help.

Barry Bonds — The Most Valu­able Player

barry bonds1Mas­tery of five skills — base run­ning, field­ing, throw­ing, hit­ting for aver­age and hit­ting with power — is the stan­dard of great­ness in a base­ball player, and San Fran­cisco Giants out­fielder Barry Bonds has reached that mark.

Gen­er­ally regarded as the best player in the major leagues today, he has proven him­self, year after year, by rais­ing his level of play to that of the all-​time greats of the game. With a recent con­tract exten­sion, he is now, befit­ting his enor­mous tal­ents, the highest-​paid player in base­ball. “I go to my chi­ro­prac­tor on a reg­u­lar basis, because I want to pro­long my career as long as pos­si­ble,” he states. “I see him about once a week, in between my train­ing (ses­sions). By get­ting an adjust­ment once a week from him, I feel I can sus­tain my career a lot longer.”

Dan O’Brien — Decathlon Gold Medalist

dan obrien1If it were not for Chi­ro­prac­tic, I would not have won the gold medal.”

You obvi­ously can’t com­pete at your fullest if you’re not in align­ment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in align­ment. It was the holis­tic idea that I liked about chi­ro­prac­tic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field ath­lete that I have ever met has seen a chi­ro­prac­tor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essen­tial. Chi­ro­prac­tic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.”

Joe Mon­tana — Three Time Super­bowl MVP

Chi­ro­prac­tic care works for me.”

One of the most rec­og­niz­able celebrity/​athletes, holder of four Super­bowl rings, three Super­bowl MVP’s and Player of the Year in 1990 has just agreed to become the spokesper­son for Chi­ro­prac­tic in the State of California.

Emmitt Smith Cred­its Chi­ro­prac­tic for Rush­ing Record

Play­ing in a foot­ball game is like being in 3040 car accidents.”

An arti­cle in the Fort Worth Star-​Telegram explains it all started after the 1994 sea­son when Smith endured a lot of ham­string prob­lems and he began to ask him­self some tough ques­tions. “Do I need to get more rest? Do I need to eat bet­ter? Do I need a lit­tle more train­ing? How can I take care of my body bet­ter? Do I need to find a chi­ro­prac­tor? It was time for me to invest in me,” Smith said. “I found a spe­cial­ist that’s really good in bal­anc­ing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is func­tion­ing prop­erly. I remem­ber some­body telling me that what I put myself in dur­ing the games is like hav­ing a car wreck every Sun­day. It’s against the norm. You can find your­self in awk­ward posi­tions. That stuff takes its toll. But if you take advan­tage of the health care, bal­ance your body back out, put it back where it’s sup­posed to be, you func­tion bet­ter, and you recover faster.”

Evan­der Holy­field — Heavy­weight Champion

I have to have an adjust­ment before I go into the ring. I do believe in chi­ro­prac­tic. I found that going to a chi­ro­prac­tor three times a week helps my per­for­mance. The major­ity of box­ers go to get that edge.

Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger — Ath­lete, Actor and Governor

Chiropractic’s can­di­date for gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia Dynamic Chi­ro­prac­tic, Sep 13, 2003.

Cal­i­for­nia chi­ro­prac­tors have a rare oppor­tu­nity to elect a long­time chi­ro­prac­tic patient and sup­porter as the next gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia. Faced with a recall elec­tion on Octo­ber 7, California’s cur­rent gov­er­nor, Gray Davis, is not expected to retain his posi­tion. Emerg­ing from a long list of replace­ment can­di­dates is Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger, a chi­ro­prac­tic advo­cate and patient for more than 30 years.

Arnold has been the fea­tured celebrity at the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tors Association’s (ICA’s) “Arnold Clas­sic and Sym­po­sium” since it began in 1993.

Through the years, Arnold has had much to say about chiropractic:

I am very for­tu­nate to have, so to speak, my in-​house chi­ro­prac­tor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own per­sonal chi­ro­prac­tor. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, every­body gets an adjust­ment. And we feel always great when Franco leaves. Even when I have ath­letic injuries, he’s always there for me and helps me. That’s why I always will be traveling…all over the world, talk­ing highly about the pro­fes­sion of chi­ro­prac­tic. You chi­ro­prac­tic doc­tors are really mir­a­cle workers.”

(Back in the 1970s) Franco would go very intensely to chi­ro­prac­tic col­lege every day. He worked on me all the time. Dur­ing the course of his edu­ca­tion he got incred­i­bly good with both the the­o­ret­i­cal and the prac­ti­cal (aspects of adjust­ing) … every time I had an injury, I could call Franco … I would get an adjust­ment, three or four, and the prob­lem would be gone. So you know, when you see that hap­pen­ing in your own body, that with chi­ro­prac­tic you will be 100 per­cent, it’s just fantastic.”

Mel Gib­son — Actor

I got a chi­ro­prac­tor to come along to the (Patriot) shoot, because they can actu­ally stick you back together within 15 min­utes. He used to come every other week, from Los Ange­les to South Car­olina — spend a week and work on the entire crew. All the stunt guys were like, Oh, fix my disc. He is putting their discs back in. The guy is amazing.
