The Value of Toronto Healthy Living

Healthy living. How do you describe that? Do you embrace it? What are healthy living behaviors? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is all about healthy living. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees chiropractic care as a healthy behavior! Toronto chiropractic patients can believe their Toronto chiropractor to be a guide to the healthy lifestyle behaviors that can not only help them deal with current spine pain issues but also avent future bouts of spine pain, neck pain, and back pain, and other health issues that are best avoided.


What are some healthy behaviors? A good diet. Exercise. Non-smoking. Low/No alcohol intake. Those sound about right, do they not? A recent study showed that men who took advantage of more of these healthy choices had lower risk of long lasting low back pain and women for neck pain. (1) Eating fruit and vegetables is an additional positive healthy behavior. This plus the other behaviors are shown to lessen the risk of having long term disturbing low back pain in women and even potentially improve the prognosis of low back pain relief. (2) Taking part in a community based musculoskeletal physiotherapy program improves the health-related quality of life for patients. (3) Utilizing a lumbar support orthosis increases postural control when standing on unstable ground.  This may be notably welcomed by34 patients with non-specific low back pain as they are predisposed to be more unstable. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre works with our Toronto back pain patients on their balance and proprioception to help improve their steadiness.


Choice of care for health care issues encourages more healthy behaviors. When patients are given the opportunity to choose their provider for back pain or neck pain relief (in one study: physical therapy care), costs were lower than if they sought care from their medical doctor first and were referred. Direct access results in a difference in costs and outcomes. (5) A study of women and their choices of providers for back pain relief reports that their knowledge of the doctor’s treatment, social network recommendations, geographical proximity, and doctor’s qualifications influenced their choice.
