Once you see a chiropractor you have to keep going back

This is false. When seeking care from a chiropractor, the chiropractor will perform an assessment including a history and physical examination to determine the cause of the pain or dysfunction. From these observations, a diagnosis will be made and the treatment plan developed in collaboration with the patient – according to their needs and goals. The treatment plan will recommend a number of initial visits to see how the patient responds to care and scheduled re-evaluations. Depending on the patient and the condition, the recommended course of care may vary. Some patients only want their symptoms resolved and the underlying problem corrected while others choose to come in for periodic wellness adjustments to maintain/improve their health. Ultimately, the decision to continue care is yours.

Chiropractors are not ‘real’ doctors

Chiropractors are regulated in all 10 Canadian provinces, and are designated to use the title “doctor” similar to physicians, optometrists and dentists after completing the extensive Doctor of Chiropractic degree program. Those professions who are recognized to use the “doctor” title have extensive training in their area of expertise that allows them to be diagnosticians – to provide a diagnosis.


Adjustments are painful

In general, adjustments do not hurt. Dr. Kitt adjusts his patients using an instrument (integrator) which is safe and gentle and can be used on people of all ages.

Why Choose Markham Chiropractic Centre

Dr. Kitt has been in practice for over 20 years. His passion is helping people of all ages live a healthier and happier life.

He utilizes Chiropractic techniques which focus on the Nervous System. The nervous system controls all functions of the body including all of your organs and muscles. Bones only move if the muscles contract, therefore misaligned vertebrae can only be the result of stress to the nervous system. As a result, we don’t use traditional spinal manipulation but instead adjust utilizing an instrument (integrator) which removes interference to the nervous system, allowing the body to function the way it was meant to be.

Dr. Kitt sees a wide variety of conditions such as neck pain, low back pain, headaches and sports/work injuries to name a few. He also has a strong focus in helping children, and people of all ages maximize their health through proper nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle choices.
