According to Canadian Chiropractic Association, over 11 million Canadians suffer from back pain and other muscle, spine, and nervous conditions every year.1 The exact cause of back pain, or why some people may be at greater risk, continue to be hot topics of discussion among chiropractors and medical researchers alike. What we do know is that back pain and other conditions that affect your muscles and spine are very common and it’s very likely that you or someone you know is suffering from one of those conditions. But when you feel pain and decide to seek help, you may not know where to go or with whom you can talk. The more you know about muscle, spine, and nervous system health, the better prepared you will be if you or someone you know is suffering from a condition that affects it.

Sometimes a lack of information about spinal health conditions can create unnecessary fear. The more knowledge you have, the more you will feel empowered to take your first steps towards living healthier. In addition to general health knowledge, it is also important for you to know who among your healthcare team can provide valuable resources and education about muscle, spine, and nervous system health. Consider visiting a chiropractor who can help support you to understand it.

Patient education is an effective means to prevent and manage back pain.2 There are a number of self-management approaches that can also help you prevent pain. With support and resources from the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA), you can take charge of your spinal health, proactively preventing pain to improve your overall health. Start the conversation with your chiropractor today to build the necessary confidence and understanding of your health so you can make positive decisions for tomorrow.

  • I started going to Dr. Marco back in January 2020 when I was suffering a lower back injury. After seeing the reviews on google, I decided to give him a chance and I haven't looked back. Dr. Marco has helped me in my recovery and brought me back to feeling healthier than ever. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind and easy to talk too. Not to mention, the prices are very reasonable and not overpriced. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a chiropractor in Etobicoke.
  • Royal York Chiropractic was recommended to me by multiple people, so I decided to give it a go for my back and shoulder problems. My first experience with Dr. Marco was extremely positive. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. His honesty and commitment to improving my pain is what kept me coming back. Very positive experience!
  • I have been seeing Dr. Marco for many years now and he helps me each time I see him. He’s friendly, knowledgeable and has a level of clinical awareness that comes from years of experience which helps to create an overall positive interaction. Making appointments is never an issue and the clinic environment is welcoming and relaxing. Highly recommend him!
  • I have had very positive experiences with Royal York Chiropractic. While Dr. Peter has predominantly been overseeing my care, I have had adjustments with Dr. Marco as well. Both are competent, caring, friendly and willing to answer questions. Anna keeps the office well-organized and the few times I've had to wait, it has never been for long.
  • I have been seeing Dr. Marco for a few years now and he helps me every time. His adjustments are precise and effective, he knows what he is doing. He can be aggressive or as gentle as you need. Appointments have never been an issue, he always works around my schedule. I would highly recommend him!
