Dr. Faiz Karim
I grew up in Toronto, Canada playing a multitude of sports. I eventually focused on soccer and swimming, participating at a high level in both. It was through injuries while playing soccer that I was introduced to Chiropractic treatment. Through these experiences I learnt to fully understand the positive effects that chiropractic treatment can have.
I focus on the treatment of conditions relating to the musculoskeletal and nervous system. I have worked with a wide variety of patients, and my primary aim is to treat the source of the dysfunction rather than the symptoms. Through proper assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, many common musculoskeletal dysfunctions can be corrected.
I am fully certified in Active Release Techniques® (ART), which is a revolutionary myofascial (muscle) technique used around the world by many professional and amateur athletes. In addition to my Chiropractic and ART training, I am also fully certified in Medical Acupuncture. I utilize both skills in the day-to-day treatment of all my patients.
While in Canada, I had the privilege to work at one of the top Sport Injury Centres, where I assisted numerous world class soccer players, cyclists, runners, swimmers and ball hockey players to return to full fitness. My past experience has given me an increased skill set for patient care along with the experience of treating top class athletes.
Many people suffer from pain due to repetitive strain injuries caused by long hours sitting at the computer or due to previous injury. You do not have to be one of those people anymore.
