Once any serious medical conditions have been excluded as contraindications (such as fractures, diseases, complete tears of ligaments or tendons, advanced osteoporosis), the following conditions may respond to chiropractic care:

 
“Pinched nerves”
Neck and back pain, muscle spasm, stiffness (strains, sprains, joint dysfunction)
Spinal facet joint syndrome (irritation of stiffened facet joints between vertebrae of neck or spine)
Sciatica or other pains radiating from the spine or neck such as thoracic outlet syndrome
Pains, stiffness and weakness of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers, hip, knee, ankle, feet

Repetitive overuse syndromes* such as : tennis and golfer’s elbow (tendonitis*), shoulder tendonitis*, bursitis & adhesive capsulitis, carpal tunnel syndrome,

"Patellar tendonitis or quadriceps tendonitis* (“jumper’s knee, also termed “patellofemoral syndrome:or “chondromalacia patellae)

“Shin splints”
Heel spurs / plantar fasciitis / Achilles tendonitis*
Trochanteric bursitis*

Numbness of fingers or toes if caused by pinched nerves (such pinching pressure may occur at the neck, spine and/or other tissues of the arm/wrist, or hip/leg).

Motor vehicle accident (MVA) injuries (treatment and rehabilitation)
Work-related injuries (WSIB, formerly WCB)
“Slip and fall” injuries
Sports injuries
Headaches (more than 90% of all headaches originate in the neck and approximately 70% in the facet joints in the neck).
 

Biondi in The Journal of Head and Face Pain 2005, Vol.45, Issue 6 reviewed the National Library of Medicine and the Cochrane Library and concluded that “chiropractic neck adjustments demonstrated a trend toward benefit in treatment of tension-type headaches and probably more effective for that than for migraine.”

 

* While historically the terms tendonitis, bursitis, etc have been used to imply ‘inflammation’ however histological studies are concluding that previously-diagnosed conditions as “inflammation” are actually more in the category of “degenerative” conditions and should be treated and rehabilitated as such (per Khan and Cook in ‘ Sports Medicine 1999;27(6):393’ and per Khan & Cook in ‘Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine 2003;22(4):711’). Biomechanical faults and misalignment have been found to be common causative factors (per Alfredson in’Sports Medicine 2000;29(2):135’). Specific treatment for these conditions would be electrotherapy, myofascial therapies, joint mobilization and manipulation, and supportive devices such as orthotics, braces, etc according to Ohberg et al in ‘British Journal of Sports Medicine 2004;38(1):8’.

 
Dr. Fuller’s forte historically has been managing patients involved in automobile accidents (MVAs)  and those involved in athletic endeavours such as soccer, hockey, bodybuilding and weight lifting up to the national and world champion levels. This has included former competitors and winners of such titles as Mr. Ontario, Canadian Heavyweight Bodybuilding Champion, Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, Ms. Olympia, 2003 Canadian and World Heavyweight Powerlifting Champion, Canada Cup soccer champions.
 

His background, training, and experience in assessing and treating athletes and in particular exercise and weight training enable him to personalize specific exercise plans for MVA patients.
