Sault Chiropractors


My foot had caused me pain for years intermittently.  My physician told me it was “plantar fasciitis”.  One morning, I woke up with a swollen toe with no apparent cause, and I couldn’t put much weight on the foot. The only solution my physician could offer was painkillers, which weren’t very effective.  It had been a week and my foot wasn’t improving.  I finally was motivated to seek the assistance of a chiropractor.

I was limping badly and near tears when trying to walk into Dr. Dumanski’s office.  I cringed when he took my foot in his hands, but he distracted me with a smile and a joke as he painlessly adjusted it.  He then had me lay on my front and placed acupuncture needles down my lower leg and foot.  He hooked me up to a TENS machine and returned in about 15 minutes.  I didn’t feel much different and I wondered if the whole visit was a wasted effort.

Later that evening, I was dancing in three-inch heels.  My foot felt completely normal!  That was 10 years ago and I have never had problems since.

I hurt my low back while doing some gardening at home and woke up on a Saturday morning with the worst pain I had ever experienced.  I dreaded the fact that I would have to go and sit at the Emergency Department at the hospital for 6 hours.  I tried calling every chiropractor in town, hoping that I could reach someone.  I did reach Dr. Grace Tridico’s office and was so thankful to be seen on the weekend.  She has worked tirelessly to have me return to work as quickly as possible. I highly recommended seeing her.

Dr. Grace helped me with my back pain and sciatica during my pregnancy.   As a first-time mom, I was scared and Dr. Grace calmed my fears about chiropractic and about the entire labour and delivery process. I saw her regularly throughout the pregnancy and managed to get through my labour and delivery without an epidural or medication.

When my 5 year old daughter was having trouble with constipation and hadn’t had a bowel movement in a week,   I was concerned and took her to see Dr. Grace.  She made the whole experience fun and comfortable for my daughter so that she would not be afraid.  She explained everything to us and put it into easy to understand dialogue so that my 5 year old understood.  After 2 or 3 hours following the treatment, my daughter had a bowel movement.  My daughter had an excellent experience and looks forward to her visits with the chiropractor.  You can tell from the minute you step foot into her office that Dr. Grace loves working with children. Thank you Dr. Grace!

I hurt my low back lifting a piece of metal at work and had pins and needles down my right leg.  I went to see Dr. Dumanski and we started a WSIB claim.  He used a special spinal decompression table to passively and painlessly separate my spine which allowed the disc material to move back towards the centre of my spine.  He used other modalities as well and over the course of a few weeks, I was back to normal.  I continue to do my stretches and strengthening exercises which he taught me to do.  My entire family goes to see him now.

My experience with Dr. Grace has been positive and I have confidently recommended her to others.  I found her to be reliable, competent and caring.  She take the time to “listen” to her patient’s concerns and after completing her assessment, explains the problem(s) and necessary treatment(s) required.

Dr. Grace has “Emergency Weekend Service” available upon request.  I am so very grateful for the weekend treatment I received (especially when I was experiencing excruciating back pain).  Thank you so much Dr. Grace!  I appreciate all you do for me.

Dr. Dumanski helped me with my shoulder pain.  I had suffered for 3 months with chronic tendonitis I tried anti-inflammatories and was given a referral to see an orthopedic surgeon.  The thought of a cortisone shot or surgery did not appeal to me.  Dr. Dumanski did therapeutic ultrasound, acupuncture, joint mobilization and soft tissue therapy to my shoulder.  It worked wonders and I was able to cancel my appointment with the orthopedic surgeon.
