Not sure how one of our Scarborough chiropractors can help you? Curious to find out how adjustments works? Want to know exactly when you need a chiropractor? Here are some of your most common questions answered
What is that cracking sound in chiropractic adjustments? Is it safe?
An adjustment (also known as joint manipulations) is when your chiropractor applies directed & controlled force to your joints to restore limited range of motion, decrease pain, and reduce nerve irritation.
The “crack” you hear during your adjustment is just the joints opening up. Think about a suction cup releasing from a wall. It is NOT your bones “cracking”. When your joints are stiff, there’s a lot of pressure that is built up in the joint space – and the “pop” is just the sound of that pressure releasing.
Yes – adjustments are safe! Chiropractic Doctors are trained for years in the art & science of proper joint manipulations. They will always perform a thorough assessment to ensure adjustments are safe and beneficial for you – and will always work within your comfort level.

Dr. Uravi Shah is our amazing Clinic owner and rockstar chiropractor! She’s a pro a treating joint issues and neck pain.
A second-to-none experience. Front desk is hospitable and very friendly! I’ve done a few appointments with Emma and she is absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable in her expertise and solved my chronic back-pain within just a session. Wish I had an extra thumb to give it three thumbs up, two isn’t enough
Can't recommend this place enough! Erika is amazing at what she does & does a phenomenal job of targeting areas that need attention. Really recommend her services - the cupping, body work & acupuncture trifecta is a perfect combination and I look forward to each visit. Additionally, everyone I've encountered at Axis is very friendly and easy to chat with; overall, a wonderful atmosphere to be a part of.
Absolutely love this place.Have done several FST and Deep Tissue sessions with Rex. He is fantastic and has the best hair line. Guarantee you’ll be taken care of.Update: Rex is unreal. Wow. Does not get enough credit for the work he does. Where immense knowledge meets application. You are the best.
Always a 10/10 experience at Axis. The front desk staff is super friendly and helpful. I have been going for acupuncture/cupping/massage with Erika for my back pain. She really cares about my concerns and takes her time with me. She is also super knowledgable and hilarious. I feel amazing after my treatments. I tell all my friends and family to go see her!! I highly recommend!
Emma gave me one of the best massages I've ever had. We discussed my problem areas before starting and I was surprised at how intuitive she was. I felt the full effects of the one-hour deep tissue massage and was sad to see the time was already up! Very impressed overall 🙂
My Genuine Review for Axis Therapy:This was my first visit to Axis and I don't mind going back there for my future treatments for following reasons:First of all, the people. Everyone is so professional and welcoming.They make you feel at home.I went there to treat my foot pain. I was having very bad foot pain.so I decided to try massage therapy. I booked a session with Emma Woodhouse to try the therapy for the very first time and i don't regret my decision. I am very much impressed with her massage therapy sessions. Emma is very professional , very knowledgeable and knows her job very well.Within just 3 sessions she managed to reduce my foot pain to great extent. She also gave me some excercises which is helping me a lot.I can definitely recommend Emma to everyone.Secondly, I liked the Place and Ambience.This place is so professionally managed and designed ( I really liked the hanging plants at the waiting area ).Its super clean and make you feel fresh on every visit.Definitely worth visiting.
I have been fortunate to visit Axis Therapy and Performance on a regular basis for over 4 years and have always been pleased with their exceptional service. From a warm greeting at the door, to very specific and detailed treatments from the lovely therapists, I know I’m in good hands! I am a VERY HAPPY regular.M. Mekni
My girlfriend and I had a great experience at Axis. I am a physiotherapy student and I already know where I will be applying once I graduate! The customer experience from the initial call to the front desk and to the therapist is flawless and seamless. I felt like they actually cared and was taken care of every step of the way. I love that they don't use machines or send me off to assistants. The hands on approach has helped me more than what the other clinics provided me. I also love the vibe of the space and the team, they clearly all love what they do, have fun, and speak highly of each other. I have been to other clinics like Myodetox or Evolve, and although they are great and have a similar model, its the customer care from the front desk, positive environment, and the quick results my gf and I received that would put Axis above the rest. I would give more stars if I could. I have already highly recommend Axis Therapy & Performance to my friends and family.
First time going to Axis. Emma has some magical hands!! She was able to identify the root cause of my pain! Emma made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. After my session, I felt great! Highly recommend Emma for RMT. Lady at front desk was so kind! Will definitely return! Also not to mention, Emma is 😍!
I’ve had a few injuries and physical issues in my lifetime and I also had some physiotherapists and chiropractors attend to me and my needs. I have to say Dr. Tiffany has been a rare combo of getting the best medical help I can get plus an absolute awesome personality to come with it. Its just great to receive one of the best medical attention out there and couple it with that fun personality that makes you comfortable and eager to come back for more. It takes away the natural fear of seeking medical help … and that itself if awesome … Thanks Dr. Tiffany, Thanks Axis
Had an amazing massage experience with Emma! I prefer heavy pressure for my massages, I get deep tissue and Emma did not disappoint! She was able to hit all the necessary spots to relieve tension in my body. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dr.Lim(b) - pun intended- is amazing.She’s incredibly patient and you get a real sense that she not only cares about you as a patient, but also you as a person.After every session I feel encouraged and excited to for what exercises and goals that she sets for me to help myself!I’ve finally found a chiropractor that actually does their job diligently and is caring.
Staff are so welcoming and friendly. An easygoing environment that is clean and well maintained. Received FST with Rex and was not disappointed. He always makes sure that I am comfortable and is super attentive during every appointment I've been to. I'm feeling stronger, flexible and now able to do more and get more out of my workouts.
Axis is the place to go! Be it for Teens, Young Adults, Adults, All Age Range! My family has had great experience with the multiple services they offer. I have been going to Axis for over a year, and can say that the staff is amazing; friendly, helpful, supportive, professional and understanding! A great environment to get treated!
I found Axis by searching top rated clinic of this kind and I am so glad that I tried it. With so many good reviews, I am sure that they are all wonderful professionals, and I started with Dr. Edward and wow, he was amazing! I didn't feel the need to ask a lot of questions as I could feel that I was in good hands. Dr. Edward is an awesome chiropractor, he knows what he does, truly professional. Front desk staff is very friendly and pleasant. And of course, the clinic is very clean. Great experience!
I love this place. It’s my Go To. Dr. Ed is wonderful and so is the rest of the team. I’ve been doing accupuncture on my ankle due to swelling and Dr. Ed is simply amazing. He’s so nice and welcoming, and very educated. He makes you feel very comfortable. The entire staff is awesome as well. They answer any questions in regards to insurance which is really helpful.Thank you guys for everything ☺️
