A chiropractic adjustment is a non-invasive procedure that is intended to restore motion to a restricted joint. When joints are restricted and/or painful, muscles can as well become tight and sore.

Thanx so much for putting me at such ease during the COVID 19 PANDEMIC. After a week of agony from a slip and fall, I... found out the hard way that Dr. Scales does indeed provide an essential service! I thought all my problems were solved with the last visit....he left me with an amazing range of motion and flexibility in my shoulder which did endure, as usual. But I can be a clumsy sort and Dr. Scales and his crackerjack team of pain solving associates have put Humpty back together a few times. Special thanx to Dr. Brendan Macoretta and Alana Goertzen (Kinesiology and Massage Therapist). Thank you all for helping to free me from the painkiller, Lyrica. Medicine and Big Pharma do have their place, but for the long haul, it's about diet, exercise and getting in with a great chiropractor. Once I came for an adjustment, and there was a spry couple all jovial on their way out; they stopped to talk to a familiar face beside me and, when I realized they were both in their nineties, I knew that Lakeshore Chiropractic Group would be my last stop for pain management. I'm very glad to have found Dr Scales and his practice.read more

I met Dr. Brendan while visiting my daughter in St. Catharines. She noticed I was walking a bit crooked with some... obvious pain and discomfort. She called his office and a visit was quickly arranged. He diagnosed my issue very quickly and corrected the problem in just two visits. What an incredible, knowledgeable, personal and informative doctor. Need a chiropractor to assess and adjust a problem? His laser and stretch table are unique - he uses them to correct problems. Dr. Brendan can fix you quickly as he did for me. He is beyond a doubt the best! Wayne Newell - Halifax via Honduras.read more

From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere is friendly and engaging. I came in to see Dr Scales... with painful... sciatica.He was so friendly extremely knowledgeable listened to me... patiently while I described in detail my pain LOL something I'm sure he must get tired of hearing, but he certainly did not show that!I am continuing treatment and what I love best is the treatments are so non-invasive. They use so many techniques that really are what you expect in Physiotherapy. This is something that was very important to me.He has used cold laser a spinal decompression machine a stretch therapy machine.... plus thoughtful and gentle manipulationI am delighted to have found this chiropractic office..Keep up the good work!read more
