Chiropractic / Acupuncture / Physiotherapy / Custom Foot Orthotics / Massage Therapy 

At River Oaks Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, we take great pride in providing the finest wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Oakville office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal treatment utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, our chiropractors have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment and mobilization.  We also commonly treat conditions of "non spinal joints" such as hips, knees, shoulders, wrists, ankles and feet.


Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world.  acupuncture_picture.jpgIt is a system of diagnosis and treatment that is based in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  The treatment involves the insertion of small solid needles into precise anatomical sites in the body to produce therapeutic effects.    Dr. Christina McGlashan is trained to perform acupuncture.


Physiotherapy can help you get back to the activities you enjoy again! It is an effective treatment for for pain, muscle tightness, and reduced mobility. Physiotherapists are experts in movement assessment and treatment, and once pain is relieved, can teach you how to keep the pain away for good. Full description.

Custom Made Orthotics and Shoes

Lack of proper care, ill-fitting shoes and general foot neglect are responsible for the majority of foot problems. It's important to understand your feet have direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step.  A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.  At River Oaks Chiropractic and Wellness Centre we offer custom made orthotics and a wide range of shoes to help support you in any activity that you do.

Massage Therapy


Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach  that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office  provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to  meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage  therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling,  relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your treatment and recovery. In addition to skeletal imbalances, muscles and connective tissues can be injured or imbalanced. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
