Tom Oake - Gravenhurst ChiropractorLet me start with the story of why I am a chiropractor.

When I was 5 years old I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle. That accident caused me to lose the use of my legs for 3 months. My parents were informed that I had suffered spinal shock and that my paralysis would not be permanent and my legs would eventually work again. The prognosis was correct but no one understood why I was always getting ill. Have you ever heard of the 24 hour flu? That’s what it was called and I would experience it far too often. Nausea, vomiting and dizziness were some of the symptoms that I experienced.

As a young lad I played hockey and like all kids I aspired to go to the NHL until I was 14 years old when I bent over to check the oil in my Dad’s vehicle. That was the day I experienced the pain of a vertebral subluxation. My low back “let go” and I ended up in bed for 3 days unable to move. Thanks to my parents for having the insight to take me to a chiropractor.

That Doctor told me that I had a problem in my spine that was about 10 years old. Starting to get the picture? He adjusted my spine and it was like a miracle happened. The pain started to dissipate immediately. I was impressed (to say the least) but more importantly I never ever experienced the “24 hour flu” again.

Let me tell you that I know first hand what a vertebral subluxation can do and how it can change your life. No more dreams of the NHL, sickly as a kid with dizziness and nausea and other things that are too numerous to mention. Thankfully from that day forward I have had good health and I give chiropractic all the credit.

It changed my life significantly so that I have devoted my life to helping people experience the freedom that it gave to me. I continue to get a chiropractic adjustment once per week not to stay clear of pain but to maintain my health and keep my freedom.

Chiropractic is not always about pain. It is clearly about achieving freedom and a healthy lifestyle. It usually starts with a phone call.
