"I’ve learned that there is one key determinant to proper recovery; Does the patient understand what’s wrong? It’s so important to focus on patient education, helping understand the underlying causes, and how to correct them from the source. Essentially teaching an individual to speak the same language as their body."

Dr. Deborah Mechanic is a chiropractor, yoga instructor, and functional integrated acupuncture provider, practicing in the GTA. Until it’s closure in April 2020, Dr. Deborah also maintained a column at the Canadian Jewish News.
