Chiropractic

Why Chiropractic?

Everyone, regardless of age or condition, can benefit from a nervous system that is working at its very best.  Chiropractic care is ideal for patients who wish to treat the cause of their pain in a safe and natural way.  This care does not rely on the use of drugs to treat the symptoms of an issue; rather, it focuses on the source of the issue.  In chiropractic, patients take an active role in their health through healthy lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise.

Our Treatments

We use a number of highly-effective gentle adjusting approaches to correct the subluxations, help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Diversified

After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints, stabilizing nerve and muscle imbalances and correcting vertebral misalignments called subluxation.

Activator Methods ®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust for gentle non-invasive correction of the vertebral misalignment.

Thompson

Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

MyoVision ®

This equipment utilizes technology developed by NASA. MyoVision® has the unique capability of quantifying the electrical activity of the various muscle groups. It is used to diagnose neuro-muscular abnormalities.

Gonstead

The Gonstead approach uses x-rays and a specialized heat-sensing instrument to give thoroughly examine patients and deliver measured results. The Gonstaed technique is acknowledged as one of the safest systems of evaluating and caring for the spine.

Chiropractic Biophysics

Corrective structural rehabilitation technique emphasizing optimal spinal alignment and posture.

Flexion Distraction

Non-surgical technique aimed to increase spinal motion and can undo nerve pressure and disc compression.

What to Expect

You will immediately feel at home the moment you walk in the door.

If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel.  Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.

Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!

The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.

So, check us out here. Get to know us. Then, contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.

  • First Visit. To find out if we can help you, we ask questions and listen.
  • Second Visit. We’ll report what we found and answer all your questions.
  • Regular Visit. A typical visit will be much shorter, but just as important!

Testimonials

"I first came to Peninsula Wellness Centre as a chiropractic patient for lower back and neck problems that had given me trouble since I was in medical school.  I have always had an interest in alternative medicine and Dr. Duong came highly recommended from another physician. I began treatments and was quite pleased with the care I was given. We started talking about diet and nutrition and he suggested that I go on a low calorie diet with HCG drops. I was quite amazed at the results, and in just a few weeks I had lost 13 lbs.  Following the diet, I went on a maintenance plan for 3 more weeks and lost another 3 lbs. I was feeling better, and the pains in my knees and hips that had been there for many years were gone. I'm very happy with the high quality care and treatments I received from Peninsula Wellness Centre and would recommend Dr. Duong to anyone who wants to live a healthier life style, look and feel better."

"Before coming to Peninsula Wellness Centre I had been to many different chiropractors over the past 20 years.  Various techniques were used on me in attempts to reduce my pain and increase my mobility without much success.  I'm a 42 year old male with chronic ailments that have gotten progressively worse over the years.  I would like to say thank you Dr. Duong for what you have done for my health and the quality of my life.

I'm so excited about the changes you have made with my health in such a short period of time. You have given me simple tips in diet and exercise that have not only made me feel better, but so much easier to move as well.  I am finally back to playing tennis. The equipment you have and the latest techniques and technology you use in your practice are really impressive.  Your adjustments are smooth and always make me feel better.  Thank you for helping me.  I look forward for the new things that I'm sure you are planning to add to Peninsula Wellness Centre."

Went to my 1st appointment and Dr. Johnny Duong was amazing! He really took the time to listen and understand what was going on with me. After so many days of chronic back pain just one session with him made a world of difference. Not to mention his adjustments were fantastic. Super gentle and on point!  It was also my first time entering a super cool cryotherapy chamber! I felt great immediately after, and that feeling stayed with me throughout the entire week. I am a regular cross fitter, so anything I can do to help me recover is essential. I will definitely be back for some more cryotherapy! Thanks Dr. D!

I was referred to the office by a family member for back and joint pain.  I had a great experience and Dr. Duong and the staff are awesome!  Very professional and knowledgeable.  I got a great gentle chiropractic adjustment after a thorough examination and x-rays.  The cold cryotherapy really helped with my pain and muscle tightness/soreness.  I definitely look forward to coming back for more.  I highly recommend Peninsula Wellness Centre.  Thanks for everything!

My first visit on 02/20/2017 with Dr. Johnny Duong wasn't a pleasant one. I awoke that morning and immediately knew something wasn't right. I tried getting myself out of bed but was unable to walk due to severe lower back pain accompanied with numbness in both legs. I was literally carried from the car and into the facility. Almost immediately X-Rays were taken along with slight and gentle lower back manipulations. I was asked to return to the office the next day for a consultation and further diagnosis of the X-Rays. The diagnosis was not one I was expecting nor did I realize the serious spinal severity and pain I was suffering from. My X-Rays displayed a serious spinal disorder with severe disc degeneration compression with idiopathic scoliosis. We then scheduled an appointment to discuss a possible preventative treatment plan with Dr. Johnny Duong.

At first to be perfectly honest, I was skeptical. After discussing it over with family and couple of close friends, I opted to receive chiropractic treatment of adjustments and exercises for a length of 7 months to alleviate pain and prevent future degeneration to my lower spine & neck. It's been nearly 5 months since receiving treatment. I'm feeling less pain; I have more mobility along with increased stamina. I also feel that a positive mental approach, completing all recommended stretches and exercises have benefited my progress immensely. Dr. Johnny has made a huge difference in my life, If you're reading this and decide to proceed with treatment, give it time and follow Doctor Johnny's advice and instructions. I can almost guarantee you that you will have a positive experience and outcome.
