We Treat You Differently

Control Cord Tension

Traditionally, it is difficult to change spinal curves because your brain is hyper-focused on protecting your spinal cord. This is where our purpose-built, double ended, decompression table comes in, allowing us to change your spinal discs and ligaments without increasing cord tension. It’s a game-changer.

Neuromuscular Re-education

A cornerstone to scoliosis correction is using body weighting systems. With x-rays as a guide, we use a specialized weighting system to activate the bodies natural response to fight resistance and change muscular tone. This corrects your curves by levelling your shoulders and pelvis.

Vestibular Input

Utilizing brain-based therapies addresses a major aspect of scoliosis, postural tone. With one side of the spine often having increased tone and the other decreased tone, activating your brain and vestibular system appropriately will make all the difference!

Top to Bottom Correction

The cervical curve and pelvic level needs to be an early focus in care. When these areas change, the curves follow. Typically, with early intervention of the neck and pelvis we have slowed and even stopped progression of the scoliosis.

Rib Rotation

Larger thoracic curves (over 35 degrees) can result in organ compression due to rib intrusion. By levelling your shoulders and introducing specific exercises for your ribs we will help you improve your rib orientation.

Directed Exercise

You need to change the way you exercise with abnormal spinal curves. Your spine needs to be stretched and strengthened in an individualized way, we will show you how. This typically continues with supervision until spinal maturity.

Dr. Stinnissen is my go-to chiropractor for any concussion related symptoms. He is attentive, thorough, and just... generally a pleasure to be around. If you want someone to listen to you and develop an individualized treatment plan, he's your guy!read more

I've had the pleasure of being under the care of Dr. Stinnissen at another clinic in downtown Toronto and I was sad to... see him go. However, I want to make it known that Peterborough has earned an amazing and passionate chiropractor with a wide breadth of knowledge, both in concussion management/rehab, and as a manual practitioner.read more

After suffering a traumatic head injury in August of 2019, I spent a long time dealing with all the headaches and other... symptoms associated with it. I went to the Brain Therapy clinic in January and I am already seeing great progress that I haven't seen before. This clinic is full of amazingly supportive, knowledgeable, and friendly staff. They have a comprehensive approach at treating brain injuries and have a process that is their own, and not like other clinics who have an off the shelf concussion rehab program. I am very happy with this clinic and excited to see even more progress.read more

Dr. Ian Horseman is a fantastic chiropractor. He takes the time to work with each client according to their needs. I... never feel rushed in my appointment and leave each appointment thoroughly adjusted and a little pampered. The diverse range of techniques from massage to laser, properly warming up and icing down muscles before and after treatment makes for a good adjustment that lasts for weeks.read more

I'm VERY grateful. Dr. Ian and his staff have put me back on the road to healthy posture and walking, and I'm getting... better all the time. I also really appreciate that my treatments include so much more than a "quick crunch". My sessions are extremely thorough and they're a wonderful time to relax and restore. Grateful.read more

I have been going to the Brain Therapy Clinic weekly for almost 2 years. After suffering a traumatic brain injury in... July 2016.. I find this to be the most effective and beneficial therapy I've taken part in for both my physical and cognitive needs. I have seen great improvement and highly recommend you check out the clinic for your chiropractic or brain therapy needs. I am so thankful I walked in the doors and will never look back.. the staff is so wonderful and empathetic and have really been here for me every step of the way in my recovery. Seriously.. check them out!read more

I have been going to the Brain Therapy Clinic for a very long time. Recently I went to get my normal adjustment on my... spine and mentioned I had a issue with my foot. Ian adjusted my foot and it is starting to feel better after 3 years of pain. The team is amazing and very helpful. Extremely professional and they make you feel comfortable in an open environment. I highly recommend this clinic.read more
