As an avid Triathlete and Water polo player and being from the shores of Arabian desert where we take sports and friendship very seriously I can only say that PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has simply added a spice to my fitness and friendship. I do not think that I will be able to make it to Dubai Triathlon without this Team’s help. Great work guys and thanks for keeping me away from Ibuprofen and the likes.

There is no other healthcare provider that has ever shown this much interest in my overall health and wellness progress/goals.

— Derek. S.

— Roberta H.

— Julie V.

“I have been a patient at ProActive Health Group since 2011; I have always included chiropractic as part of a healthy lifestyle. In November 2013, I injured a disk in my lower back. Under the care and guidance of the practitioners at ProActive, I not only fully recovered but trained for and ran my first half-marathon 1 year later at the age of 45. Chiropractic works!

— Ruby L.

I now visit the clinic on a monthly basis to ensure I am well adjusted and loose to prevent further injuries. Overall 5-Star!

— Patricia W.

“I started coming to ProActive a few years ago after my husband was referred here for nerve issues. At the time I was struggling with pain in my neck and back – mostly from bad posture and obesity. After being diagnosed with breast cancer I stopped smoking, improved eating habits and began exercising. 2 years later, I am down 60 lbs and go to yoga 4-5 times per week – along the way ProActive has been a big supporter! My regular chiropractic maintenance adjustments helped me while I strengthened my body. Every visit at PHG always leaves me feeling a bit better and with my regular exercise and strengthening exercises from ProActive, I am stronger and healthier at 41 than I was at 31. Thank you ProActive for supporting me – I am thankful for learning my health is most important!

— Nanette K.

“Three years ago I could hardly walk, now after treatment at PHG I can walk 36 holes of golf each weekend. I have used all facets of the clinic – chiro, physio, massage and naturopath – having everything under one roof is the best thing. The team at PHG has kept me functionally active. All professionals in the clinic are very knowledgeable in their specific area and honest in their diagnosis in that further treatment, if not needed, are not recommended.

I have only recently started treatment here, but I am appreciating the different approaches and look forward to being able to hit the trails in the spring.

— Claire F.

“I was referred to ProActive Health Group by a friend who was coaching National Bobsled athletes.

For the past few weeks I have been training at the clinic to help me prepare for the World’s Longest Hockey Game and break the Guinness Book of Records.

I would recommend this practice not just to athletes but anyone who would like to improve their overall quality of life.

— Oscar A.

“ProActive Health Group has been a vital part of my life for the past 10 years. Initially I needed (and continue to do so) adjustments to my back.

I have become a true believer in body maintenance as I move forward with my life in the 70’s.

— Diana L.

“I had been having lower back pain/stiffness for the better part of a month. My wife suggested that I book an appointment with ProActive Health Group, since she has had great success with treatment.

— Nathan W.

“I first came to ProActive Health Group to treat a very sore low back. It came on very fast and was starting to affect my everyday life and activities.

— Kristine L.

“I brought my daughter to ProActive Health Group as they had been recommended to us. They have been a huge help in alleviating my daughter’s foot pain and helping her to heal so she can continue in her sport. They have been kind to my daughter and informative about her injury. It has been easy and enjoyable coming into ProActive Health Group. In addition to this, the reception staff has been helpful and very efficient.

— Carrie J.

“I was introduced to the clinic by my wife. She was doing a Running Room clinic. She could not say enough good things about the clinic’s philosophy towards health. She bugged me enough to have the clinic take assessment of my hip problem. I was hesitant, because I have already searched out treatment at other clinics that performed sports physio and acupuncture, etc. all of these places had little or no impact over a period of time. I decided to give another chance to allow this to improve my quality of life. They provided me with the straight truth to how the treatment was going to progress and the underlying causes. The clinic is excellent in it’s strengths for the team member’s knowledge and passion towards their fields. I’m happy to report my quality of life has improved since I have been attending sessions. I hope for a nearly perfect recovery.

— Dwayne C.

“I came to PHG after finishing my first half marathon with sharp pain in my knee. My knee was treated and recommended a training schedule that would allow me to maintain my fitness level without further aggravating my IT band. One month later I finished my second half marathon pain free and faster than my first. Thank you!

— Tracey F.

“I first began going to this clinic due to the close and convenient proximity to my work, but have since found additional benefit through massage and chiropractic treatments for my neck, back and arm strain. I appreciate the expertise found at this office as they not only help treat immediate pain, but have provided me with exercises to help prevent future injury.

— Kristina P.

“A nagging shoulder injury brought me to PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP. I prefer to be active rather than to resort to drugs (NSAIDS) or potential surgeries when problems occur. Everything is connected…and in my experience, physicians often isolate. The PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP staff understands anatomy and movement patterns, treat, educate and help me maintain my fitness goals!

— Laura F.

“What first brought me to the clinic was chronic knee problems. What has kept me coming back is the holistic approach to treatment. Whether I am receiving chiropractic and ART for lower back maintenance or prolotherapy and physiotherapy to strengthen my knees, I know that I am getting treatments that address the body as a whole. Our body is our most important asset. It is worth the investment!

— Marian M.

“I lead a very active lifestyle. A history of unresolved knee problems was impacting my ability to continue to be active, so I came to PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP. PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has been instrumental in finding the source of my problems, treating the issues and allowing me to continue with the level of activity that I want. The whole team at PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has been amazing.

— Bryan S.

“After tearing my rotator cuff 2 ½ years earlier, I was experiencing pain and limited mobility. When acupuncture had failed and my doctor told me there was nothing else to be done, I found PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP. Within 2 months I was completely pain free and have regained total mobility – Amazing!

— Dianne D.

— Janice V.

“I have been a patient since 2007. Initially I was referred by my son’s hockey coach. PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has enabled both me and my son to remain active and successful in the level of activities we both enjoy and strive for. My personal injury history began to affect my enjoyment of activities and my functionality in everyday life. PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has been the only solution to date for me to continue to achieve my personal goals without limitations from past injuries.

— Jens S.

“I first came to PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP about 1 year ago for sore Achilles tendons. When they resolved, I stopped coming. Then, after sometime with a sore shoulder, I came back. I was counselled to undertake a more comprehensive solution; posture, chiro and core strengthening which worked fabulous. Working with the practitioners at PROACTIVE HEALTH GROUP has made a huge difference. Instead of focusing on one issue, they work on the root causes – life long changes that make a difference. The change in my shoulder is immense but there are many other benefits – my left knee (osteoarthritis) is much better because of my posture and properly using my glute etc.

— David M.

“I have been attending the clinic from the beginning. Awesome!! The quality of treatment is of the highest level of which has kept me an active person physically. I am able to continue with my outdoor activities because of the care given to me by the people of this clinic. They have given me very good back care and in formation to maintain a good quality of life. My back/body is healthy because of the care I have received at this clinic.

— Gayle C.
