One of my favourite quotes from a Harvard M.D.

The greatest hope is in the doctor on the inside. Anyone who does not agree with that has not evaluated or been exposed to the science and the evidence.

The greatest doctor is inside the body. The more we create a lifestyle that honours and supports our own body, the better health, protection and performance we will have.

I trust this note finds you and your family healthy and safe. I wanted to update you on the status of our clinic.

As you probably know we were mandated by the government and our regulatory body to reduce our care to urgent care only.

We have been successfully following this mandate for the past few weeks and are happy to announce that effective Monday, June 1, 2020

 WE ARE ABLE TO EXPAND OUR HOURS OF OPERATION AND

 ARE READY TO SERVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES

 WITH OUR NATURAL HEALTH CARE.

We are beyond excited by this and look forward to welcoming you and your family back into our office for care.

Temporary Office Hours Effective June 1, 2020

Monday          9:00 am – 12:00 noon & 3:00 – 6:00 pm

Wednesday   9:00 am – 12:00 noon & 3:00 – 6:00 pm

 Friday             9:00 am – 12:00 noon

It is important to us that we ensure you are safe and protected from any risk associated with acquiring this virus or any other for that matter. To that end we wanted to review with you the safety and sanitary standards we have adopted at our clinic.

● All surfaces that will be touched by human hands are scrubbed down with disinfectant before and after each shift and before and after each patient. This includes door handles to closed doors, chairs, reception desk, point of sale terminal, adjusting benches, testing equipment and therapeutic equipment to name the most common ones. We have a checklist that is followed after each patient to ensure we do not miss a thing.

● You are required to cleanse your hands upon entering the premises with the hand sanitizer we will provide. We advise you to do the same when you leave.

● You are required to let us know in advance of your visit to the office if you are not feeling well or have a fever. We will ask you to postpone your visit to the office until your symptoms have abated.

Family Wellness Chiropractic (416) 490-0785     www.drleck.com

● Dr. Leck will be cleansing his hands between each patient visit to ensure there is no transmission of infectious agents.

● The doctor and team will be wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as per our regulatory bodies requirements.

● Safe physical distancing protocols will be maintained at all times between the patients while in the office.

● Our appointment booking system has undergone some transformation in order to keep you safe. We will be booking patient visits at a frequency that minimizes the possibility that more people will be in the office at once than can safely maintain physical distance protocols. We ask for your cooperation and patience with us as we work out the new booking system. It is important to contact us by phone if you arrive early for an appointment so as to ensure appropriate physical distancing.

● If at any time during your visit with us you feel uncomfortable or unsafe PLEASE communicate that to one of the team members or the doctor and we will do everything in our power to resolve it and help you feel safe or rebook your appointment.

You and your family’s health are our primary concern. A properly functioning spine and nerve system is key to regaining and maintaining good health and we are more committed than ever to provide this health enhancing care once again to you and your family.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Please call the office or visit our website using the Contact Us tab Appointment Request system to get your next appointment booked soon.

Sincerely,

Dr. Don Leck, Joanna and Claudia

PS – We will have to limit our handshakes and hugs to virtual versions for now but please know that we are doing it in our minds and hearts each and every time we see you.

April 29, 2020

Greetings Everyone!

Not open yet, but planning on reopening on Wednesday, May 13th from 3:00 – 6:00 pm on a limited basis for urgent care only. For those who have already contacted us via email, we will be contacting you shortly for May 13th  bookings.

We know back pain can make it tough to get through the day. This is especially true when you’re spending more time sitting at home than usual. Beginning a stretching routine is a simple way to stay flexible.

Stretching improves your mobility, posture and balance. It helps to relax tight muscles and is a wonderful complement to your chiropractic care.

We’ve compiled a few gentle stretches for you to get started with below. No equipment is needed, but a yoga mat is recommended for your comfort. Begin by holding each stretch for about 15 seconds and repeating twice. Work your way up to 30 seconds and 5 repeats over time.

Side Bend

This calming pose stretches your spine and promotes good posture.

• Stand with your feet and legs together
• Inhale and stretch your arms towards the ceiling
• Lower your left arm and exhale as you bend slowly to the left, lengthening your right arm over your head
• Repeat on the opposite side

Trunk Rotation

This stretch helps to improve core strength, ease tension and increase flexibility in the lower back.

• Lie flat on your back with your knees bent
• Exhale as you rotate your legs to the left until you feel a stretch in your spine and hip
• Hold and inhale as you slowly return to a neutral position
• Repeat on the opposite side

Knees to Chest

This simple range of motion stretch is good for your lower back and your glutes. Try with both legs or alternate.

• Lie flat on your back with your knees bent
• Use both hands to pull your knees up to your chest
• Keep your lower back flat on the floor and hug your knees
• Release and repeat

Piriformis Stretch

If you suffer from sciatica, this stretch can also help to alleviate leg pain.

• Lie on your back with one knee bent and your foot on the floor
• Cross the opposite ankle over your bent knee
• Pull your bent knee towards your chest and hold
• Repeat on the opposite side

Child’s Pose

This popular yoga pose is a relaxing way to end your stretching routine.

• Kneel on the floor with your knees hip-width apart and your toes together
• Exhale, keep your buttocks in contact with your heels and reach your arms forward
• Let your chest fall to the floor, stretching out through your hands

Take a few minutes every day to work through these stretches. Don’t rush the routine, and remember that stretches should feel good. Never force yourself to stretch further if you feel pain. Breathe, and use this time to relax and reconnect with your body.

Did you know that stretching also helps to improve circulation? Try making your new stretching routine a habit first thing in the morning. The increased circulation will provide a boost of energy and help you start the day feeling great!

Hope these tips help. Missing you all. See you soon!

Be well,

Dr. Don Leck, Claudia and Joanna
