To The North Shore Wellness Centre and Terry Dickson,

Boxing is a demanding sport..so is carrying my twin children on a hike…the later of which caused me two solid weeks of back pain. I was hesitant to go to a Chiropractor, I am used to just “pushing through the pain”, but I had heard of Terry through word of mouth and he always came highly recommended. I decided that the pain was too much, lasting too long, and was past the point of “sucking it up”.. .after seeing Terry at North Shore Wellness Centre, I have nothing but amazing things to say. First off, Terry and the staff were very professional and informative. Terry explained all movements, explained treatment options, and never pressured me into a specific type of treatment. His service was tremendous, and in one day, I was good to go!

Now, I see Terry for maintenance and prevention and I personally recommend Terry and the North Shore Wellness Center to anyone in need of pain therapy or ongoing health support!

In July of 2012, I underwent successful back surgery on my lower lumbar spine. However, after going through rehabilitation, I still could not achieve the range of motion I once had. I ran into Terry at the gym; knowing he was a Chiropractor, I informed him of my situation and he was more than eager to help. He told me about Active Release Technique (ART) and all the benefits it would serve me. I was sold! The following week I went into his office and after the appointment my range of motion improved and some lingering pain subsided. I continued to see Terry for ART, my flexibility and range of motion continued to improve as well. Terry, helped me get back on the field and more importantly, I am able to perform to the best of my ability.

Where do I start when it comes to Dr Terry and the North Shore Wellness Centre? For years I put my body through competitive sports virtually anything & everything. Lots of contact sports & most recently in the area of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighting. I know that without the treatment of Dr Terry, Dr Brad & Dr Tavakoli that I would not have the success I experienced in my fighting career. With the help of Dr Terry I was able to remain undefeated in my semi-professional career as a MMA fighter.  The knowledge and experience of Dr Terry and his staff is tremendous and they are very professional & informative. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dr Dickson and his clinic.In the last year I have had my hip replaced and Dr Terry and his team go above and beyond to make sure that my recovery is what it should be and more. Life after sports is so important.  I continue to go to the North Shore Wellness Centre for optimal health & I have recently started taking one of my daughters who is in competitive cheer to Dr Terry. I personally recommend Terry and the North Shore Wellness Centre to anyone in pain & for maintenance purposes. You will not regret making the call!

I’ve sent many an athlete over the last 8 years to see Terry Dickson. In CrossFit our athletes come face to face with their bio mechanical issues like no other program and Terry has helped countless CrossFit Lions members with a variety of those issues. On a personal level Terry has been a big part of my body maintenance over the years and I trust him to make sure I can continue to perform my job at the level I need to.
