A Natural Approach to Reducing Your Pain and Improving Your Health

At Port Union & Lawrence Chiropractic and Physiotherapy in Scarborough, you can trust that our care is safe, natural and effective in reducing your pain while optimizing your health and wellness. Below is a list of our core services and treatment methods.


Physiotherapy evaluates, restores and maintains physical function. Emphasis is placed on the musculoskeletal system and what an individual can do on their own. Alongside the education to prevent future injury or disability, it aims to return individuals to their standard of living and independence.

Physiotherapy aids in the treatment of physical dysfunction or injury by utilizing a variety of different modalities including: spinal traction/decompression (cervical and lumbar), therapeutic exercise and stretching, manual therapy/mobilization, acupuncture, and electrical aids (ultrasound, TENS, IFC, cold laser therapy).


Chiropractic care focuses on restoring the health of joints, nerves, and muscles through adjustments. The drug-free approach to alleviating back pain includes a patient assessment, diagnoses and treatment. In particular, chiropractors treat people with neck pain, lower back pain, headaches and pain related to the pelvis and joints (knee pain, shoulder pain and foot pain).


Acupuncture is the practice of inserting fine, disposable needles into the skin to relieve pain conditions. The needles themselves stimulate blood flow within the body and improve vitality. Individuals suffering from arthritis, tendinitis, chronic pain, headaches, skin problems and digestive disorders benefit from acupuncture treatment.

Massage Therapy

Registered massage therapists use a variety of massage techniques (effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement) to maintain varying degrees of pressure and enhance blood circulation, movement and relaxation. Our staff employs a variety of hands-on techniques to assess and treat the soft tissues and joints of the body to help maintain, rehabilitate and augment physical function.

Massage therapy works to improve circulation of the blood and lymph, decrease pain and inflammation, improve mobility, relaxation and stress reduction. Massage therapy is effective for many conditions including headaches/migraines, sprains/strains, tendinitis/bursitis/arthritis, repetitive strain injuries, pregnancy, respiratory conditions, constipation, and postural dysfunction.


The practice of chiropody treats and prevents diseases or disorders in the foot by therapeutic, surgical, orthotic and palliative means. These diseases and disorders include, thickened/ ingrown toe nails, fungal nail or skin conditions, plantar warts, diabetic wound care and heel/arch pain.
