What's New in March

Written By Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic on February 26, 2019

Concussion Awareness Month at MCC

Did you know that 465 people suffer a brain injury daily in Canada? That's one person every 3 minutes.

Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Unlike with other types of injuries, there is no way to "see" a TBI, even with modern imaging technologies like CAT scans and MRIs, thus making them difficult to detect and harder to treat.

Prevention and awareness are key. Baseline testing is the only way to establish your personal level of function and allows for a safer return to work, school and play. Merivale Chiropractic & Massage Clinic offers an objective baseline testing protocol approved by Health Canada for use in the detection and assessment of concussion.

In honour of Concussion Awareness Month and St. Patrick's Day, we are offering 17 concussion screenings and exams for only $25 (savings of up to $190). Take advantage of this offer today by calling our office at (613) 226-8142, or click here to send us an email.

Products of the Month

Brain and gut health are inextricably linked; damage to one may compromise the other. Merivale Chiropractic & Massage Clinic offers an extensive nutrition protocol to promote proper healing and brain function in the aftermath of a concussion. We offer high-quality products from Metagenics, including:

UltraFlora Spectrum - Provides multidimensional daily probiotic support for both the upper and lower GI tract for digestive and immune health.
