I have had 7 visits over a period of 2 months with Dr. Don on the recommendation of a friend who greatly benefited from his therapies. His diagnostic exam was the most thorough I had experienced in recent memory. He encouraged me to get X-rays to confirm his diagnosis, which they did. The resultant exercise program coupled with his laser machine and hands on therapies have improved my condition quite quickly. My pain has eased significantly, giving me hope for the first time in ages. I will continue to see him whenever I am in Toronto (I live out of town) for as long as he recommends and my body tells me is necessary. If your'e willing to heed his advice and follow his recovery program, you will improve quickly and build towards a healthier future.
I developed low back pain with left leg radiation to my ankle.MRI showed disc and cyst pathology at L5 - Sacral 1. I was booked for surgery. I visited Dr. Don and after his detailed examination, he said he could help. He did Laser, Dynamic Traction and Rehab Exercises. Three weeks ago, having only slight low back pain, I visited the Orthopaedic Surgeon and he did new MRI study, he said the MRI showed that the Dynamic Traction had taken the pressure from the disc and the laser had healed the cyst. No surgery was required. One happy patient
