Read what real patients have to say about their experience upon receiving treatment from Jay David at St. Joseph’s Osteopathy Clinic.
Before working with you, I had severe pain in my right shoulder due to over use in tennis. Surprisingly, only one session with you helped my shoulder tremendously. I have been on anti-inflammatory medication for the past two months, and directly after our session, I stopped using the medication. I am proud to say that because of Dr. David, I have no more shoulder pain. You're a life saver!

I had seen our family doctor and complaining about sciatic pain extending from my buttocks to my foot sole preventing me to walk for more than ten steps at the time. The prescribed medication did not alleviate the pain and I still had the problem walking a week later. I was recommended to seek alternate treatment, possibly osteopathy and here Dr. Jay entered the picture. At his initial 50 minute treatment he told me it would take about three sessions to get better and indeed after the third stretching and osteopathy treatment it took two more days and I was pain free. I found his approach and attitude very professional, without any pressure to continue seeing him, when one feels better. All I can say is: Thank you Dr. Jay.

Before I talked to Jay David I really did not understand what osteopathy treatment was and assumed it was the same approach as going to see a chiropractor. After my first visit with Mr. David I found his treatment to be a very different and a gentle approach for treating pain. I have been in an office job for many years my pain I believe is partly caused by spending many hours in a sitting position. My sciatic nerve is inflamed which starts in my lower left side of body and runs down my left leg. Jay used a variety of stretches and pressure points on specific muscles which helped takes the pressure off the nerve. He also showed me a few stretching exercises to do at home. After two visits and doing exercises I feel much better and on my way back to recovery. My doctor a general (GP) gave me the pain killers and muscle relaxants drugs and said recovery for me could take up to 12 weeks. I feel much better after four weeks and confident my complete recovery will be much faster thanks to Jay David’s treatment and advice. I highly recommend Osteopathy treatment and Jay David.

I am a forty-seven years young man and until six months ago, in my opinion, I was very active and health conscious. Making a bad judgment call, I decided to knock down my shed in my yard and got injured. It was determine I had a herniated disk in my neck between C5-C6, affecting my right shoulder down to my finger tips. I have been suffering for the last 6 months. My job requires about forty percent travel. On one occasion, I was in Cleveland and thank God my wife was with me. The pain was so bad it woke me up in the night; and my wife drove me home. With tears in my eyes and a pain level of 10, I landed myself in the hospital for three days until they found medicine to relieve the pain. For months I was dependent on the meds. Scheduled an appointment with a pain management doctor, I got one steroid shot in the area (with some relief), and then another (with some more relief). Started physical therapy, but hit a wall on recovery. I had to stop physical therapy because I went backwards. It got to a point after 6 months that I could travel, but suffered. Depressed that I could not get over the last couple of hurdles, I did know what to do. I was in Canada and a friend recommended going see Dr. David. That week I saw him multiple times for treatments. I truly cannot put this last part in the right words. I thought my only option to get better was surgery. NOT ANY MORE!! No more meds and I feel real good. Dr. Jay gave me stretches and exercises to do. There is still a lot of work to get back in shape, but with time, I finally now feel confident I will. I already can ride my spin bike. My goal is to play basketball by March and be ready for running around with my son and going spring fishing. I CANNOT THANK DR. JAY DAVID ENOUGH!! THIS INJURY NO LONGER HAS CONTROL OF MY LIFE!!

I hurt my lower back a few weeks ago and suffered an immense pain for days. I thought taking medication for pain will make it go away but it didn’t, the pain reliever only provided a temporary relief. I finally got the best solution through Jay’s osteopathic treatment and I am so thankful for that! The pain disappeared after 2 sessions with him. I had a very positive experience on both sessions with Jay. He’s very professional, has a strong knowledge and experience in providing treatment for wide range of muscle aches and pain. He takes time to investigate and explain the root of the condition and gives advise on different ways to stretch for patients to take away after the session. I also appreciate that Jay truly cares for his patients, he doesn't see his patients as numbers but as real people with specific concerns and he invests time and energy to focus on each patient's specific physical problems before it gets worse. Thanks for the helpful treatment and support Jay!

I was experiencing upper back pain and related numbness in my arms for some time before I met Jay. My experience with Jay's Osteopathic treatment was very positive and in a couple of sessions was able to reduce my back pain significantly. I would say that Osteopathy in Jay David's hands is a great healing technique and I would recommend him to all those who suffer back pain.
* Nimmi U. from Mississauga, ON - 08/03/14
After two years of treatments with chiropractors, physiotherapists, rheumatologists, acupuncturists, I have finally met a doctor who took time to treat the pain and really understands what was going on with his patient. He assessed the body very precisely and explained what happened and what he would do. The results achieved in just one session was amazing. I am very happy to have found Dr. Jay and will not hesitate to refer him to any person who is looking for a real DOCTOR.
* Luiz R. from Mississauga, ON - 03/07/14
My osteopathic experience was very positive and helpful towards my recovery. I appreciated the focused attention and flexible schedule that my osteopath was able to provide. His in-depth knowledge and varied experience was very beneficial and led to a decrease in my pain level each week. Through the one hour sessions and exercises he suggested, I think my recovery was definitely expedited. Thank you for all the help!
* Aimie M. from Mississauga, ON - 02/23/14
I've had problems with my back for a few years now. I've seen physiotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists all with no real results. I've received some treatment with Jay David and I have to say he does some amazing work! He gave me his treatment and also suggested some very effective home exercises. I feel I'm well on the way to recovery. Jay David also is very professional, works directly to the problem and does not insist on endless return visits!
* Li L. from Mississauga, ON - 02/20/14
I was not able to function due to a dreadful low back pain, but Jay David saved my life. I wasted all kinds of time and money on physio and acupuncture, without receiving any results. On my very first visit with Jay he identified the problem (it was my quadratus lumborum acting up) and did what was needed to fix the problem. I found Jay to be highly knowledgeable, warm, caring and eager to go above and beyond the call of duty in order to help me out. If you are in any kind of pain or are concerned about a physical problem and want to save yourself a lot of grief, give Jay a call. I promise you won't regret it.
* Lisa S. from Mississauga, ON - 11/08/2013
I had a great race, thank you. Your treatment certainly helped loosening up my hips. I ran the half marathon (21km) in 1:44:55. I came 16 out 146 of my age group category and 116 out of 1005 overall women. I am very happy.

"Neck pain and hand numbness are ok, except the shoulder maybe because you forgot to put your new technology patches. Till next time...smile because you are my healing angel. I will definitely recommend you to others."
* Ellen D. from Scarborough, ON – 10/06/2013
“I was in a very bad physical condition when I first arrived at the clinic. I couldn’t walk and do simple activities. But after the second session I started to walk and sit and now, six sessions after, the sciatica pain is almost completely gone, like magic! I definitely recommend Dr. Jay to anyone suffering with pain, specially sciatica.”
* Mirian A. from Mississauga, ON – 09/25/2013
I can never express how happy I am after the 3 session of Osteopathy treatment I had from you. I have been through such an immense pain and limping past few weeks and also had 7 physiotherapy treatment which did not really help me much. After 3 sessions of Osteopathy treatment, I can truly tell it has cured me completely and I am back to my normal day to day activities. I will and continue to recommend people I come across with similar or related issues to visit your clinic to look forward for your treatment.
Thank you once again Dr. Jay.

I was suffering from severe hip pain after the birth of my third child and was beginning to lose hope that I would ever be able live pain free again. I decided to seek Osteopathic treatment with Jay David and much to my surprise, I felt amazingly better after only the first treatment session! In that past, I've tried different types of treatment such as chiropractic/physio, however, nothing has delivered great results as the Osteopathic treatment. I am beyond happy with the progression of treatment thus far and I highly recommend Osteopathic treatment with Jay David. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and ultimately, he will be able to successfully treat you.
* Anna N. from Mississauga, ON - 02/04/2013
I just wanted to say thanks. With so many problems that built up, the last 2 weeks have been the best I’ve had in a long time!
I have less stiffness overall, my neck has more mobility, and the treatments on my shoulders and back are helping me sleep better.
A great way to start the New Year!
* Andrea S. from Mississauga, ON - 01/18/2013
Thanks for everything that you have done for me to cure my sciatica and back pain after only 3 visit. I have suffered for years on and off with back pain but now I feel great. I was referred to Jay by a family member and it was the best decision I made to come and see Jay. I have not felt this good in years. I would highly recommend anyone suffering from sciatica or back pain etc. to make an appointment to see Jay.
* Dan P. from Ajax, ON - 12/30/2012

Thank you Doctor Jay!

I returned from Italy on Saturday, Boy I found it hard adjusting, jet lag. Anyway I did very well while was away. I put my body through a lot, it was grueling. Up, up, up, hiking almost everyday for two weeks. The only other time my leg bothered me was coming home on the plane.

I would like to introduce myself, I'm in my early forty’s, have spent most of my working years in the construction industry, operating heavy machinery. In the last two years my right shoulder and right elbow developed an ace which degraded into a persistent pain, in addition my shoulder lost some mobility. This pain would be so bad that it would wake me up when I was sleeping. I would like to say that Mr. David executed two treatments on my right elbow and right shoulder in the past month. The result of this treatment has given me back most of my mobility in my shoulder, and the pain has disappeared. I am exceptionally pleased with the results, and I am looking forward to my next appointment.
