I have been a patient at your institute for 3 years now. My initial visit was 1 week before I was to go on a vacation for the first time in 15 years with my husband. I woke up one morning and was unable to move my head in any direction. Upon a referral from my Doctor, I visited SEMI. I have never looked back! They had me in everyday for a week and by the time I was to leave on vacation I have full range with my head/neck. The Practitioners are wonderful. They take the time to give you exercises to do at home, advises on how to adapt your motion until your affected area is healed and most of all listen to your symptoms and concerns. I have recommended many co-workers, friends, family and my husband to Toronto SEMI. They are FIRST CLASS from beginning to end! Thanks to the sports medicine specialists and staff I live pain free.
