Choosing a Chiropractor in Guelph

Our Philosophy at Zavitz Family Chiropractic

At Zavitz Family Chiropractic, Dr. Terry Zavitz and Dr. Meredith Smith strive to work along side each patient giving them hope in their God given ability to heal and be healthy. Our goal is to create long lasting relationships with our patients to impact their health over the long term. We use the latest in chiropractic research, techniques and technology to bring a high level of care and results.

We take the time to explain everything up front and in detail, from what is the cause of your problem, to what the goals of your care are in terms of results, time, frequency and costs. We believe that the more an individual understands their condition and care, the better results they will achieve. With that said, your choice to start chiropractic care is always up to you.

I love seeing what I call the ‘light bulb effect’. It is when people start to understand what we do and realize that chiropractic can help them. When the light bulb goes on their hope for health is renewed. It truly is the most exciting part of being a chiropractor! Of course it is equally exciting to see someone regain their health in the process of care.

Relief care…it’s where we start.

Many people seek care in our practice and have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:

  • Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
  • Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
  • Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
  • Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care

Damaged for Decades

Learn More On Spinal Reconstruction

When the spine becomes misaligned, the body begins to lay down scar tissue soon after. With time, layer upon layer of scar tissue builds up. By the time neck pain, back pain, headaches, and other symptoms develop, there is often severe breakdown in the discs and joints of the spine.

Staying Well

The third key is wellness care, maintaining the spine in a healthy state. The daily stresses of life, sitting, standing, sleeping and work postures, slips and falls, and emotional and chemical stresses, continue to affect your spine and body throughout life. Finding and correcting any new mis-alignments in the spine, and keeping the spine from returning to the previously damaged state, is the key to maintaining a healthy spine for a lifetime!
