An Overall Great Experience

“From my first phone call to book my appointment I was impressed with the professionalism and expert care I received. This is the best chiropractic assessment and treatment I have ever received. Do not hesitate to book your appointment. I felt better after my very first treatment..”

Feeling Great

After my visit today I felt great knowing there was a plan in place to help ease my pain. After my first adjustment I felt great and even slept better that night. The next morning I was surprised when I got out of bed and I was in no pain at all. I’m looking forward to returning for my adjustments. The staff were so helpful and even held my baby for me during my appointment!

Friendly and Knowledgable

“I had never been to a chiropractor until about 2 months ago when I had an emergency. After seeing not one but two other chiropractors I was referred by a friend to Dr. Mathewson. After my first visit I felt like I was heard and that this could help. Very happy with his service and his admin staff are friendly and knowledgeable.”

Always Looking After My Family

My chiropractic experience started over 30 years ago with Dr. David. It started with looking after my own health and my regular office visits. It soon changed – my daughter was 4 at the time and off to school. She started experiencing headaches and a sore neck. I took her to our family doctor who sent us to a Pediatrician. Talking to Dr. David, he asked me to bring my daughter for a visit and within an hour we were on our way to an Optician. She just needed glasses – thank you Dr. David. My oldest daughter, now 30 and living in Vancouver started experiencing backaches last year during her pregnancy. Who else but Dr. David to the rescue. He simply contacted a chiropractor in Vancouver and the rest is history. My daughter was well looked after during her pregnancy and I am now the very proud grandpa of a beautiful, perfect little granddaughter. I couldn’t begin to thank Dr. David enough for a life time of support, friendship and always being there to look after my family – my elderly parents, my two daughters and myself. Thank you Dr. David.

A Chiropractic Journey…

“In September of 1996, I started commuting 200 kilometres daily to a stressful new job. While I enjoyed my work, it was my dentist who noticed that my teeth were looking worn down. I admitted that I was also experiencing an increased number of headaches and tension in my jaw. My dentist suggested that I might be suffering from TMJ syndrome, a condition where teeth clenching (often during sleep) is one of the symptoms.

Wearing down the teeth and eventual breakdown of the sinew/disc between the jawbone and the skull are some of the outcomes. My dentist suggested ways to reduce the stress in my life: more exercise, Vitamin B, acupuncture, etc. I took his advice, but I wanted more immediate relief from the pain. During my search for answers, I discovered that chiropractic care contributes significantly to my overall well being. I have learned that getting rid of the subluxations in my spine, would not only relieve my headaches but helped heal my body quicker…naturally, the way God intended.

I cannot remember the last time I had a prescription for medication filled at the pharmacy. I haven’t had the flu for a very long time and I don’t get the ‘flu shot.’ I am a teacher, exposed every day to all kinds of germs and diseases, but the worst I seem to get is a mild cold or sore throat. I blame this on neglecting to wash my hands often enough!

I know that chiropractic adjustments keep me healthy. I believe that getting adjusted regularly is a proactive way to optimal health, and far better for you than opting for the reactive methods of prescription drugs or even worse yet, surgery. There are still days when my TMJ bothers me. Let’s face it: Life is stressful! However, regular adjustments seem to keep it in check and if it flares up occasionally, it’s easily fixed.

Lately, my dentist has said he doesn’t believe my teeth are being worn down any further and I don’t get headaches. Chiropractic care is one of the best things that ever happened to me.

It’s also been great for my kids. My son happens to be the youngest client Dr. Matheson has ever adjusted, at just 3 days old. The trip babies make from the womb into the world, often causes subluxations in their tiny spines. My infant daughter has also benefited tremendously from her adjustments. If she is having digestive troubles, a trip to her chiropractor is a sure way to clear them up. During her first eight weeks of life, she was particularly unsettled and fussy, but regular adjustments quickly helped her become a very contented and easygoing baby.

Mine is just one story of chiropractic success. I encourage you to try chiropractic care it if you haven’t yet, and if you’ve quit going for some reason, go back. For my family, regular adjustments are much more healthy and palatable then regular doses of medication or repeated visits to our MD.”

Even After Back Surgery…

“I was the world’s worst skeptic when it came to chiropractic care. Having had back surgery some years ago, I was left in constant pain, but the medical establishment had basically told me they could do no more for me. Finally, I decided to consult a chiropractor, and fortunately now my life is a lot better. I feel that chiropractic care has kept me working, and most days I have very little pain. Thank you Dr. David.”


“I have been a convert to Chiropractic ever since I suddenly had an unexplainable problem walking without pain, that neither a doctor nor physiotherapist was able to correct. Somewhat sceptically, I consulted Dr. Matheson, a ‘sports chiropractor’, and within a few weeks was ‘cured’.

“Now that I am older, I am more susceptible to lower back pain. One day after snow shovelling, I suffered a lower back spasm so severe I couldn’t bend my head even slightly. Getting to Dr. David’s was agony, but I walked away from his office, without pain and able to bend again. I always hurry in at the first twinge of sciatica, to prevent an acute onset, because experience has taught me that if I ignore the twinge, sciatica comes in earnest and I’m suffering for weeks.

My children still swear by chiropractic to ‘solve’ or ameliorate their varied injuries/problems. And even though they continue to see a chiropractor where they live, they make sure I have made an appointment for them with Dr. David whenever they come home to visit. He’s still the best!!

Chiropractic is no longer covered by OHIP; nevertheless, I continue to go for ‘preventive maintenance’ in order to maintain my active lifestyle.

Thank you Dr. David. You’ve been a life saver.”

Neck Pain

“Chiropractic care has changed my life. When I began chiropractic care, my neck pain had gotten so bad that it interfered with everything I did. I started having neck pain when I was pregnant with my first child, over 65 years ago. I didn’t have it very often, maybe every 6 months or so. Over the years, it got a lot worse. It finally got to the point where I knew that it was something that Tylenol and a heating pad (now I know heat wasn’t good!) wouldn’t fix.

“I was scheduled to have an MRI done, but couldn’t because of a prior ear surgery. Not knowing what in the world to do, my sister-in-law recommended Dr. David. I considered not going because the thought of getting anything adjusted made me very nervous. When Dr. David examined me and said that he could help, I knew that I had made the right decision.

It has been over a year and I don’t miss any of my appointments unless I have to. I don’t just get adjustments from Dr. David, I also get advice on how to keep myself healthy and I’ve learned to avoid things that could trigger my neck pain.

I can’t even put into words how much better I feel. Chiropractic care has changed my life. I can’t imagine taking caring of my two small children with the neck pain I was having before going to Dr. David. He has truly been a blessing.”

Migraine Headaches

“At the age of 12, I started having lower back pain and severe migraine headaches. My family physician put me on a very strong and highly addictive migraine medicine. By high school, I was absent an average of 2 days a week. When I went off to college, the headaches were too much for my work load and a family friend recommended Chiropractic treatment. The results were immediate! I am no longer a migraine sufferer.

I have been having regular chiropractic treatments for 20 years now. Dr. David has seen me through migraines, back pain, pregnancy, a knee injury and sciatic pain, all with fast and effective results. Today I am very healthy and very active in exercise and sports.”[/box]

General Health Maintenance

“When I was a lot younger, I was thrown from a horse and severely injured my back. While I managed to get chiropractic care at the time, there are still effects from those old injuries. When I moved here, I looked for a good chiropractor and found Dr. David.

Over the years, he has worked regularly with me, enabling me to maintain a relatively pain free life in spite of developing arthritis at the sites of some of those original injuries. I introduced my husband to chiropractic care, followed by each of my four children, who received regular treatments from the day they were born. Now, even my new grandson is being cared for by Dr. David, as he is suffering from some digestive upset.”

Overall Health Improvement

“Soon after I got married, I found myself unable to ride in a car for any more than about 20 minutes, without getting major back pain & stiffness. Dr. David’s adjustments took care of that problem in short order. For the last few years, he has been taking care of my neck, upper back & shoulders which are giving me muscle like aches & pains caused, in his opinion, by the constant bending forward of my neck as I work. My general shakiness has also improved overall.”

Low Back Pain, Bursitis & Tendinitis

“In the fall of 1990, while crossing the street, I was hit by a car. At the time, my only injury seemed to be a badly bruised leg. Six weeks later I awoke with serious back pain…pain that made it difficult for me to breathe deeply. A friend of mine drove me to Dr. Matheson’s office.

Dr. Matheson saw me right away, examined my spine, took an x-ray & did a gentle adjustment on my spine. I went through sort of an intensive phase of treatment to correct my problem as quickly as possible, then the amount of time between my adjustments increased as my pain diminished. I faithfully did the exercises he recommended & eventually the pain was completely gone. As an added bonus, the morning backache with which I had suffered for years had also disappeared. Regular chiropractic adjustments and daily exercises recommended by Dr. David have enabled me to have a healthy back. Dr. David has also helped me to recover from bursitis in my left hip, tendinitis in my right arm, injury to my wrist from a fall, and occasional shoulder or neck pain caused by over exertion or intense repetitive activity. Dr. David helps me to stay active & healthy. I will continue to go to him for my chiropractic care because I trust him.

Life After Back Surgery

“I have been going to the chiropractor for approximately 30 years and I wish I would have started earlier because I don’t think I would have had back surgery. It gave me more pain then I had in the beginning. Thank God for my chiropractor, Dr. Matheson – he has kept me feeling good.

My 3 teens have been going to Doctor David for 12-13 years and enjoy it. I feel people have to be responsible for their wellbeing by more natural things like Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Naturopathic medecine. Doctors are not gods and the ones that don’t believe in Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Naturopathy I don’t have much faith in. God made our body to heal itself, not with all these different drugs that have so many side effects. The body is a whole and you can’t just treat it as one thing – you treat it as a whole.”

Pain Free

“In June 2003, this 78 year old ‘kid’ was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. I broke my right hip, right arm & suffered a lot of spinal damage, which resulted in total paralysis from my neck down. The doctors did not expect me to live, but when I did not expire, they predicted I would never get out of bed.

Later they changed their tune, and said I would never get out of my wheelchair. I was discharged from the hospital after 15 months, able to move slowly using 2 crutches. I hurt everywhere! In 2005, this same person, hobbling around using the 2 canes, started having massage therapy and 3 months later, commenced chiropractic care. After a relatively short period of time, I was able to walk better, but was still suffering chronic pain in my neck, spinal column, knees & hips. At the present time, I am basically pain free and able to walk quite well without the use of any aids. As a footnote,I would like to commend Dr. Matheson & Leanne for helping me get back on my feet and I would honestly recommend the services of Matheson Chiropractic Clinic very highly!”
