To ensure you acheive the best outcome, treatment plans are custom tailored to meet your specific needs.
Chiropractic is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Canada with over 6,000 practicing chiropractors. Approximately four and a half million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year.
Acupuncture is a 2000-year-old Chinese treatment in which needles are inserted into acupuncture points. Acute and chronic pain is often treated with acupuncture, including joints, muscle, arthritic, shoulder, neck, low back, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and migraine and tension headaches.
Graston Technique® allows us to better detect and treat scar tissue, particularly in the muscles, tendons and ligaments because it uses a stainless steel instrument that glides along a patients muscle, tendons or ligaments and acts like a scar tissue stethoscope
Shockwaves are mechanical pressure waves that work on tissue and are used to treat musculoskeletal problems. Originally indicated for the non-invasive disintegration of kidney stones, shockwave therapy has since also been used successfully in orthopaedics.
Low-level laser therapy is the application of red and near-infrared light over injuries or wounds to improve soft tissue healing and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Low-level therapy uses cold (sub-thermal) laser light energy to direct bio-stimulative light energy to the body's cells without injuring or damaging them in any way.
Mulligan Technique is a manual therapy that works on the joints of the extremities and spine to create increased pain-free movement. This technique focuses on creating mobilization of joints with movement while the practitioner applies an accessory gliding technique.
Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic taping technique that gives support and stability without limiting movement. Kinesio Tape is elastic in nature and can stretch 30% beyond its original length. Clinically, it is applied to muscles to help reduce pain and inflammation, relax overactive muscles or to support movement.
DR. JEFFREY TULING
Jeff completed his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Waterloo and graduated cum laude with his Doctor of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto.

Jeff's patients include the elderly, children and babies, expectant mothers, and elite performers and athletes, and he experiences a great deal of personal and professional satisfaction hearing about patients' improved functioning at work and home, and watching patients "killing" it on the Stratford Festival stage.
Both Stratford & Stonetown Health and Wellness Centres continue to build upon their strong reputation as evidence-based, patient-centered and results-oriented clinics and are Stratford and St. Mary's trusted and reliable choice for chiropractic, acupuncture, rehabilitative physical therapy and soft tissue injury management.
