    Yes! Our physio has 15 years of experience as an orhtopaedic surgeon, to help you with all your rehab needs!
  • Do you treat extremties (ankles, knees, hips, shoulder)?"
    Absolutely! It is one of our favourite things to treat, with our treatments yielding great results.
  • Do you reuse neeedles?
    Never! Every needle is a single use disposable needle.
  • Can I get the same treatment thats offered to the pro-athletes you treat?
    YES! That is the entire idea behind GTASPINE. We want to provide everyone with a chance to experience the most advanced and functional rehab that is offered to the pros.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    Yes! We accept almost all Canadian based insurance companies. If you have a question simply contact us.
  • If I don't have pain can treatment still benefit me?
    Yes! Just like you get a tune-up for your car, its of great benefit to help address certain imbalances in the body before you get injured. Don’t wait for an injury and your symptoms to get worse. Our modern lifestyle habits of being glued to a chair or couch for many hours a day or in front of a computer screen does not allow our body to work or maintain itself the way it’s supposed to. If we take the time on a monthly basis to address your muscular tension, improve your movement patterns, address lifestyle factors, and ensure that we’re dealing intelligently with tweaks and aches before they become a major problem, you’re going to feel better, move faster, and live a longer, pain-free life.
  • Do you have experience working with athletes?
    Yes, we have experience working with pro-athletes, as well as, high-level NCAA athletes.
  • Does the treatment hurt?
    Although it varies from person to person, most individuals say no! Most patients can feel some discomfort here and there but call it, “the best pain of my life”, because we work at a deep level releasing long-held tension and you’ll feel instantly better after your session. Based on thousands of hours of refining our framework, we’ve learned that to create a permanent change in a tissue quickly.
  • Do you treat headaches?
    Yes. After conducting a careful patient centered examination, we are able to determine the cause of your headache and treat it accordingly.
  • Do you accept all payment methods?
    We accept cash, cheque, credit, and e-transfer.
  • Do I need a doctors to refer me to GTASPINE?
    Patients do not need a referral to be treated by the doctor at GTASPINE.
  • How many sessions do I need?
    Your GTASPINE therapist will be able to provide you with a much more accurate timeline following your initial assessment, as a general rule of thumb the following holds true: For more minor, non-chronic injuries or movement challenges we can see dramatic improvement within 2-6 sessions. For more major or chronic injuries or movement issues we ballpark around 10-12 sessions. Finally, for severe or long-term chronic issues, it may take up to 20 sessions to see a significant resolution of your symptoms. These are very general estimates and every patient case varies, and often you’ll feel improvement from the very first session. Your therapist will work with you to create a program that will be tailored to your needs during your initial session, so you’ll have an idea of your roadmap once you come in.
  • Will I get treated during my initial appointment?
    Definitely. Although we take our time and examine the entire body looking for muscle imbalances, joint restrictions, and faulty movement patterns to help yield a specific treatment plan catered to your individual needs and goals.
  • Do you only treat the neck and back area?
    No and No! At GTASPINE, we examine and treat the entire body and we aim to get to the root cause of your pain.
  • How do you combine taping with your treatments?
    When we first work with certain patients, we have them wear kinesiology tape during exercise and day-to-day activities. The tape typically lasts for three to five days, even after showering or swimming. The constant wear is to re-educate the body to perform in a more optimal way. We want the tape to give consistent feedback over a sustained period of time so the body becomes aware that this is the new normal.
  • What is the difference between myofascial decompression (cupping) and traditional Chinese cupping?
    Myofascial decompression (cupping) is based on assessing and correcting movement inefficiencies. Backgrounds in biomechanics, kinesiology, and functional anatomy are essential to identifying and treating range of motion restrictions and muscular imbalances. Interventions include neuromuscular re-education, active assistive range of motion, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, making the patient an active participant in their treatment. Traditional Chinese cupping does not include active movement, and often is targeting energetic imbalances from a traditional Chinese medicine perspective. Myofascial decompression is a novel approach to musculoskeletal treatment, utilizing negative pressure tools and Western medicine-based movement paradigms and algorithms. These applications are very effective for orthopedics, sports medicine, contractures, post-op recovery, overcoming dominance strategies, postural syndromes, hand therapy, neuro re-education, and scar mobilization.
  • Can I have electro stimulation if I have a pacemaker?
    Because any other electrical current may interfere with the pacemaker’s ability to regulate heart rate, we do not use this modality on patients with a pacemaker. Please inform your acupuncturist if you have a pacemaker
  • My ankle hurts. Why are you putting needles in my back and glutes?
    It is important to note that neurofunctional acupuncture interventions do not aim to eliminate pain directly. The goal is to promote self-regulation of nervous system activity, facilitating up- and down-regulation processes such as the production and repair of myelin sheaths, the synthesis of protein-based nerve membrane ion channels, and the secretion and metabolism of neuropeptides which will result in the clinical improvement sought by the patient.
  • Why choose GTASPINE?
    At GTASPINE: Chiropractic Wellness and Sports Acupuncture, we combine manual muscle testing and orthopedic assessment with neurofunctional treatments as well as a background in strength and conditioning to create the perfect treatment for our patients. Dr. Gandhi's experience treating high-level athletes as well as weekend warriors makes him perfect for diagnosing and properly treating patients. The uniqueness of GTASPINE starts with the belief that in some way, everything is connected to everything else. Many therapies do not have goals outside of the pain areas. However, we start by looking at the global picture of how your body is ordered and balanced, how your body moves, and how one issue can lead to problems elsewhere. This helps us look strategically and systematically at identifying the root cause of any pain, dysfunction, or areas holding you back from performance improvements. From this point, we work with only manual therapy cupping and IASTM combined with acupuncture and electrical stimulation to address muscle imbalances and weakness and restore proper function to the body. Our goal is always results-driven – We are looking to see gains in strength immediately following treatment.
  • What should I do after treatment?
    Rest, relax, and recover. We usually recommend drinking additional water to flush out the fluid we release. To alleviate the soreness that may follow treatment, we recommend rest, water, applying ice or heat to the area, and performing stretches for the treated muscle. We also recommend Epsom salt baths as the magnesium in Epsom salt is great for muscle relaxation, and the heat of a bath helps increase blood flow.
  • What can I expect after treatment?
    We aim to see improvements after each visit such as increased range of motion, ease of movement, and decreased signs/symptoms. Many patients report slight post-workout soreness and occasional bruising in both the area treated and the area of referred symptoms. This soreness typically lasts up to 24 hours following treatment.
