My Success Story by Renee Timinski

“I have been coming to the Back to Health Wellness Centre for the past five years and it has changed my life!
I was an avid runner and had injured myself pretty bad, and it was only thanks to Dr Barbara and team that I was able to go from not running for a year-to completing a 10 km. I have now been able to run regularly pain free, something I didn’t think I could do a while ago.
Back to Health Wellness Centre is full of talented, knowledgeable and giving staff. My family and I love participating in the yearly Christmas give away to local charity, and picking up tidbits of self-care and well-being with all the info boards. It is a fantastic centre and my family and I are so grateful it is in our city!”

My Recovery from Back and Hip Pain by Don Medaglia

“I had back problems since my mid 20s and just thought this was something one had to live with.
Recently I asked a co-worker/ friend where he gets treated and he recommended Back to Health Wellness Centre and told me countless positive stories.
During my first 2 visits, I wasn’t really sure if my back and hip would improve BUT I had to give it a try. They recommended treatment and were NOT pushy about it. I followed their advice (adjustments, ART, massage therapy, kinesiology consultant) and HAVE NEVER looked back (no pun intended). By following their recommendations, I can honestly say that this is the best I have felt in years, actually many years. I have NOT taken any pain/ muscle relaxants in almost a year now. Prior to treatment, I was popping them on average at least twice a month. Especially when going on vacation and sleeping in hotel beds.
The whole team at Back to Health are absolutely amazing and am so glad I listened to my co-worker/ friend.
In closing, there is no hocus pocus here, just genuinely caring, and professional people.”

A Chiropractic Success Story by Duane Faris

I have been a patient at Back to Health Wellness Centre for almost fourteen years. I transferred my patient file there after moving from Hamilton. I was recovering from spinal trauma suffered playing contact sports at the time. I had four herniated discs and had aggravated the three other herniations that I had from a previous injury. I had terrible plantar fasciitis to the point where I would jump if someone even touched my foot. That was my starting point.
Since that time I have had a multitude of sports injuries, wear and tear conditions, one car accident (I hope that man learned not to drink then get in his car again), and a major work injury that forced me to miss almost two years at my job.
Dr. Rodwin and the staff at Back to Health Wellness Centre have seen me through all these injuries. They have never treated me as a number. They have always taken the time to listen to me. They have been kind, patient and compassionate to a fault. They have found a way to get me in when emergencies have arisen and I called at the last minute. They work as a team and were clear that my health was a priority. Dr. Rodwin is amazing. In addition to the fantastic health care that I get from her she has also provided me with dietary and supplement suggestions. She has created exercise plans for me that have brought me from a non-runner to having now completed four half marathons. She has never told me to stop doing something (rugby, running, Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu), but has made suggestions as to how I can continue doing the things I love in a different way. She has suggested alternatives as well as additions to my training that have allowed me to continue being active on my terms. I have said with all sincerity that Dr. Rodwin is the reason that I am still walking. My spine and feet were very messed up. I was taking Robaxicet eight times a day when I started seeing her and was in constant pain. I don’t need any of that now. When I had my work injury she made sure that I was treated properly. She helped me with forms and phone calls that needed to be made. She supported me personally and medically. There are not enough words to describe how amazing Dr. Rodwin is with her patients.
Back to Health and Wellness is a fantastic clinic. I regularly refer people to them. It has been almost fourteen years that I have been a patient there. I look forward to the next fourteen.
