What our patients say

I have had many surgeries over 35 years on both knees and feet hence arthritis is part of my life.  To alleviate joint pain,  I have spent thousands of dollars, and numerous hours attending clinics for on physio, cortisone shots and many another applications.  I had not found a solution until visiting Advanced Therapeutics where Dr. Don Fitz-Ritson analyzed and recommended laser therapy.  It has not been 15 months and the results have been remarkable.  I am much more active and happy thanks to Dr. Don’s expertise.

Amrita was very quick to learn my specific needs. I had been experiencing pain and tightness in my lower limbs due to long distance running. Over a handful of sessions, Amrita's treatment was progressive and effective and her care and attention to detail were of the highest order. She also set out a recovery programme for me to follow in order to increase stability and reduce the likelihood of recurrence. Throughout the treatments I was able to continue running and have set new goals for my pain free legs!

Recently I went to ATC seeking help for my recent injury and chronic back pain. Dr. Don is using  laser  therapy to treat back and neck pain, which in my case brought phenomenal results after only few treatments. On each visit Dr. Don listens carefully to my problem and each treatment is tailored to my individual needs, rather than standard chiropractic crack the neck and spine approach, which I've experienced in the past and did not helped me at all.

I was in a terrible place before I came to ATC.  I had horrible lower back pain where I was kneeling on pillows in front of my desk during the work day, I couldn’t drive for more than 20min, or do anything athletic.  I saw 4 different chiropractors, a physiotherapist and a masseuse.  Nothing worked and I was growing desperate. I was then referred to Dr. Fitz-Ritson, and he changed my life... He got me back to 100%.  I am now back to being able to sit in uncomfortable chairs, play golf, and squash.  I really appreciate what he has done for me.  (Colin Dyer, Sales Manager, Toronto)
