Ratings for Dr. Alex Ritza
I have seen many chiropractors in my life and have always had mediocre results. That being said, Dr. Ritza has shown me incredible results in managing my back pain and working with me to not just address my symptoms but the cause of the pain. Dr. Ritza determined with a thorough examination (the best I have ever seen) that my back issue was a result of core weakness and stiffness in my hip joints. He always spends at least 20 minutes with me and has provided excellent and comfortable treatment . He makes you feel like you are his only patient. High recommend seeing Dr. Ritza if you have not been able to fix a chronic problem. Thanks Alex
I am an actor and was in Toronto for a few months working on a production. The show I was working on was a highly physical one and I would constantly suffer from joint pain and muscle fatigue. I had a friend suggest seeing a chiropractor about my injuries but I was highly skeptical. The pain became a lot to deal with on a day-to-day basis and I decided to hold my skepticism and meet with someone. Dr. Ritza came well recommended so I met with him to discuss what I was going through. During our consultation he recommended electro-acupuncture as a way to help ease the pain. I had always been a bit taken back by the practice of acupuncture (let alone "electro-acupuncture) but decided that it was worth a try. Dr. Ritza explained everything to me from a medical perspective but in a practical way that I could understand it. I never saw how using a needle on the skin could stimulate an effect in my muscles but after breaking down the cause and effect behind it I fully trusted the practice of acupuncture as legitimate. Dr. Ritza explained to me that I may not see results right away but I should not let that get me discouraged. Fortunately enough, I began seeing results, to a small extent, the very next day. I proceeded to see Dr. Ritza twice a week for about a month. As the weeks progressed I felt the muscles around my knee to be stronger and that the pain had subsided a great deal because of it. After being happy with my progression Dr. Ritza suggested to take a few weeks off from having a session to see how I would maintain. I was weary about doing this after being so confident about the results I had been having but he assured me that I could schedule an appointment at any time if I needed it and he made his email available to me if I had any questions or concerns. The knowledge Dr. Ritza showed and the quality of care he provided was first class. His personality and demeanor made him incredibly approachable. I would recommend Dr. Ritza to anyone experiencing the same kind of trouble I was having. Even if you find yourself skeptical about chiropractic practice or the use of acupuncture I urge you to at least schedule an appointment with Dr. Ritza first. You won't be disappointed!
I have had herniated dics in the lower back region for 20 years and went to Dr Alex on a recommendation because I could not get my Glutes to activate while working on core strength to keep the back pain at bay. Alex did some testing and suggested acupuncture and after the first 2 sessions, my glutes were beginning to activate and now after 5 sessions I am now on a maintanence program because my glutes can be individually activiated. That hasn't happened in years, as well the chiro adjustments have freed up my stiff neck and lower back discomfort My body feel 20 years younger! Thanks Alex!
I saw Dr. Ritza for a longstanding back issue that has plagued me for decades. In a matter of a couple of visits I have never felt better! The staff at this Cardio-Go King West Location were very professional despite it being a gym setting and I was happy to know that it was open to non-gym members. He has also managed to help with with a plethora of other problems including chronic headaches and knee pain. Thanks to him I was able to run my first half-marathon pain free. Highly recommended
I went to see Dr. Ritza for neck and shoulder pain. I injured my shoulder at the gym which was also impacting my neck. Dr. Ritza took the most thorough history I have ever experienced and I felt that he had a great understanding of my pain issues. He treated me with acupuncture, deep massage, and adjustments specifically for the neck pain. For the first time in six months I have complete mobility in the shoulder area and have been able to return to the gym. I am now a regular patient and would highly recommend Dr. Ritza to all of my friends and work colleagues. You won't be disappointed.
I was feeling very discouraged after trying a number of different treatments to help with my headaches. I was having trouble sleeping, my headaches were keeping me up and my body was hurting. It was recommended I try acupuncture to help. I met Dr. Ritza and he was really friendly and empathetic. He gave me acupuncture treatments for my headaches, pain, insomnia and general wellness. I can honestly say I finally can get through a full nights sleep without pain or headaches waking me up! I am so happy I met Dr. Ritza and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Ritza was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain the rationale, process, and treatment, which was especially important to me as a first-time client. Dr. Ritza provided a stress-relief treatment with a positive impact, and also provided many helpful tips & tricks to build strength, alleviate stress, and promote healthy living. I also appreciate his commitment to his clients and the education he provides through his blog. I will certainly be coming back to see Dr. Ritza in the future.
Dr. Ritza treated a knee injury for me and then provided acupuncture other chiropractic techniques as I trained for my first half-marathon. He focused on preventative strategies that I could use to maximize training while minimizing the risk of injury. With his help I completed the race 2 minutes faster than the goal I had set for myself. I would highly recommend Dr. Ritza as he is professional, very knowledgeable and has a passion for providing excellent care.
