When a patient enters our office, they immediately notice a comfortable, clean, and modern environment we have carefully created within an updated century home in the heart of Newmarket. From the natural lighting to the exceptional team waiting to greet you, you will notice that our office was built with the patient experience at the forefront.
Our office operates on a paperless system that includes a patient-centered check-in system which allows for “no wait” appointment times. All of our advanced diagnostics (thermography, digitized x-rays) are located on-site. This allows you to get your results in the shortest time frame as possible. We are a modern day health clinic designed for modern day living.
Patient comfort is always our priority, so we only use the best chiropractic techniques available. All of the gentle techniques we use are corrective in nature and focus on getting to the cause of your problems, not merely masking your symptoms. We use state-of-the-art ‘drop-piece’ tables, approved adjusting instruments, and our hands to allow for a gentle, specific, and effective adjustment without aggressive movements.
Most chiropractors are trained in traditional adjusting techniques, although many chiropractors will incorporate a number of techniques. Our office uses gentle techniques after having completed advanced training in these methods of adjusting.
One thing we make sure is that we always use the most effective technique given your condition and your preference based on your comfort level and past experience. Before starting and program of care, we explain everything in advance.
This is a very specific, but gentle technique. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along the surface of our table support each area of your spine. Then, each drop piece gently gives way, thus reducing the amount of energy needed to move a specific spinal segment. This is a very effective technique to address specific spinal concerns. Pediatric patients, those with osteoporosis, arthritis, or who have significant pain and sensitivity, appreciate the investment we have made into our “state-of-the-art” tables.
Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP)
Chiropractic BioPhysics is a highly advanced, scientific, and proven chiropractic technique (this is the most researched technique within the profession) which corrects and restores your spine back into alignment. This technique combines biology, physiology, physics, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health. That means your diagnosis and treatment will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles. CBP chiropractors start with a scientifically based examination of your posture, spinal alignment, and function. This often involves x-rays as a way to pinpoint the root cause of your spinal misalignment. Once the cause is identified, a carefully planned series of gentle adjustments, exercises, and spinal remodelling programs will be implemented.
Impluse/Arthro-stim Adjusting Tool
Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors. At Chiropractic on Eagle, we use this patented and FDA registered device, which was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. Impulse and Arthro-stim adjustments are high-tech instruments. Therefore, there is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather a very precise and targeted “vibration”. This helps to specifically move spinal segments or joints. They are extremely safe and effective for patients of all ages.
The Activator & Integrator Techniques
We use one of the most popular “low-force” gentle techniques in the world, The Activator Method. Similarly, we also use an Integrator – Torque Release Technique. These devices are handheld spring-loaded tools that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. As such, the devices are many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand. This allows the body to relax, which is more comfortable for you.
Active Release Technique (ART) & Trigger Point Therapy (TPT)
These 2 “soft tissue” techniques focus on your muscles and tendons. They break up fascial adhesions, increase blood flow, and relax your muscles. This encourages healing, and when used in combination with spinal adjustments, allows your adjustments to hold better. ART and TPT help reduce pain in your muscles as well.
This allows for traction to be applied in the y-axis (pulling) to the cervical spine. While the aggressive ‘y-strap adjustment’ has become popular on YouTube, the more common and safer way to use this device is with a slow, controlled pull helping stretch open the discs in the neck taking pressure off discs and nerves.
This is the most commonly used “traditional” adjustment technique by many chiropractors. Diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. It’s considered the most generic chiropractic adjusting technique. It’s main objective is to restore proper movement of spine and joint dysfunction. This technique is used when patients request it and when indicated.
Corrective Traction/Exercises/Lifestyle advice
Often a patient will be required to take an active role in their health in order to ensure the most efficient recovery. We pride ourselves on providing the very best rehabilitation recommendations required to facilitate your healing. Advice will include ‘at-home’ spinal rehab exercises or traction based on your exam. Other educational instructions such as avoiding a certain sleeping posture or simply increasing your water intake. Rest assured, we are going to provide you with EVERYTHING you need to recover. That is how much we care about you! Finally, we will coach you along the way to your recovery so you can get back to enjoying the things in your life that make you happy.
At Chiropractic on Eagle in Newmarket, we know that without an accurate diagnosis, successful patient outcomes are impossible. That is why we rely on innovative technology to help us with our diagnosis – your health depends on it and we will never guess with finding out what is causing your health problems. Of course we use years of experience as well as posture, orthopaedic and neurological testing, and palpation (feeling the alignment/movement of the spinal bones) in addition to our technology.
Infrared Thermography Technology
We use the state-of-the-art non-invasive Insight Millennium Subluxation Station (infra-red thermography) that objectively helps us to:
- Detect areas of nerve disturbance along your spine
- Document and monitor your results as you progress through care
- Deliver appropriate and custom chiropractic care
It also enables us to detect nerve interference in newborns and infants with a high level of precision. The thermographic scan gives us a “picture” of what is happening in your autonomic nervous system, that helps determine how and where there may be stresses in your nerves.
Diagnostic X-rays (Digital)
We also provide on-site x-ray technology in order to diagnose you accurately. To see is to know and we will not guess when it comes to your health. X-ray technology is essential for determining how you are responding to your care and will be used when necessary at progress examinations to document your progress.

Of course our technology extends into our treatments as well.
