Symptoms Greatly Improve

I started chiropractic care for sever shoulder pain. Within a couple of visits under Dr. K, I was pain free. All symptoms have greatly improved. I now only seek maintenance to maintain good health.

I’m recommending Spyros to everyone I know! He is fabulous! I have never had anyone give explanations as thorough as he does and it is so appreciated and really interesting! I love learning and healing at the same time!

Can Walk Normally Again

I have flat feet and delt with foot problems all my life. I’m prone to sprains and cannot walk or stand for long periods of time. In Dec 2016 I also developed plantar fasciitis. I limped around for a good month before I discovered Dr. Karelis. He fitted me with custom orthotics (BEST I’VE EVER HAD), I immediately felt a difference and treated my plantar fasciitis. I can walk normally again Thanks to Spyros.

Spyros is a Fun and Professional Doctor

I have so much faith and trust with this man that I have been treated by him and nobody else for the better part if a decade. I am always hearing horror stories and ineffective treatments from co-workers with “their guy”, I recommend Dr. Karelis every chance I get.

Andrew W.

So Welcoming!

I felt so welcomed, like I was visiting a good friend! Spiros took his time explaining things to me that had not been explained well by other professionals. The Richmond Hill office is so welcoming and casual, you forget your seeing a Doctor!

Genuinely Passionate About Helping People

Dr. Karelis is genuinely passionate about helping people. He is extremely knowledgeable about his profession and does a fantastic job explaining injuries, treatments and prevention to his patients. I am a retired athlete but I still workout almost every day and Dr. Karelis has immensely helped me recover from and prevent the many injuries I incurred over my career. His genuine honesty is hard to find these days and I recommend Dr. Karelis to all!

Awesome Job!

Dr. Spyros Karelis was referred to me by my G.P to address my back pain. I am a first time mom, and its my first time to experience an “Excruciating” Pain at my back (Right Side). After 3-4 treatments by Dr. Karelis the pain subside and I’m now back on track. Dr. Karelis did an awesome job. He is very approachable and very knowledgeable and he truly cares, that’s what I like most about him.

Melody D.

Professional and Compassionate

You could not find a more thorough professional and compassionate practitioner in the field of chiropractic service. Dr. Spyros Karelis is patient and knowledgeable. I have known him for 10 years and he has helped me heal enormously.

Sharron M.

His Expertise Proves It

I had a hurting lower back and I put it off for a week. My wife called 1 hour before closing and Dr. Spyros agreed to take me the same day!. He stayed late just to help me out and performed my first treatment right after the assessment. Considering my pain, he booked again for the next morning. He told me not to expect any miracles after the first treatment but to be honest my pain went from an 8 to 4 in one treatment. Day and night difference! He performed another treatment 2 days later and it went right down to a 0.5. It shows that Dr. Spyros loves what he does and his expertise proves it. His character shows he isn’t just in it for the money. Thanks!

Laser Helping My Shoulder Pain

After some rigorous contact sports my shoulder pain started keeping me sore all day. After Dr. Karelis used the Class 4 K Laser, for my shoulder pain treatment, all my troubles melted away, after just one treatment. I am so glad, trusted my physical well-being to Spyros’ care.

Lea S.

Good Service

Very good service.

Very informative and well detailed explanations from Spyros. Very nice and friendly people that work there. May the RMT is very good (and strong) as well.

Delighted With Treatments

Dr. Karelis has been thorough in explaining my back & arm problems, the source and remedy without use of medicinal treatment. He made himself available to see me on an emergency visit for back pain that was excruciating, leaving me without sleep for 10 nights. I am delighted with his treatments and the relief I now enjoy. Thanks Dr. Karelis. :)

Low Back Pain Fixed in 4 Weeks

I work in construction. I also get lower back pain often. The last time I injured my back I could not walk straight. My foreman referred me to Dr. Spyros who agreed to see me the same day with no appointment. Dr. Spyros is very professional and knowledgeable. It took him less than four weeks to heal my injury. I was very happy with the service that I received from Dr. Spyros and I also highly recommend Dr. Spyros to anyone. I will definitely continue to see Dr. Spyros in the future.

Ivan C

Relieved My Lower Back Pain

I have been a client of Dr. Karelis for over five years, ever since being referred to him by my G.P. for lower back pain treatment. Dr. Karelis was able to relieve my symptoms after only three sessions and has kept the problem in check via routine visits ever since. He is highly recommended by me.

Michael F.

I recommend him to everyone!

First of all I am 84 years old. I woke up in the morning with pain around my ribs, my ribs go out quite often so I automatically thought that is what it was. I had an appointment a few days in the future and I thought I can go then to see Dr. Spyros Karelis. Pain was very severe so I came to see Dr. Spyros. That is when I discovered the rib pain this time was different.

Dr. Spyros Karelis gave me 1 Laser Treatment with his new class IV Cube 4 K-Laser and the pain. We did another Cube 4 K-Laser treatment to make sure everything is healing properly. Now I am pain free. The next time this happens I will come see Dr. Karelis right away. Dr. Karelis is very honest & polite, I recommend him to everyone.

In A Short Period Of Time My Injury Was So Much Better

The first time I injured myself I was not able to sit down, lie down or even sleep because I was in so much pain. A friend of mine suggested I go see Spyros that he was really good and fixed me up.

I’ll be honest I have always been weary of chiropractors, because of the horror stories I had heard from other peoples experiences. That chiropractors are in for the money, new injuries occurred by unskilled hands etc. etc.

I tell you this guy has magical hands. When I first met him it was like we were friends for years. He immediately did an assessment and knew what the issues were. In a short period of time my injury was so much better, I was able to sit and lie down and actually sleep without waking up with pain. (Yes i said short period of time!) He’s not in it for the money, Spyros loves to see his talent actually help cure people. He wants your pain to go away because he cares. He wants your body to heal itself, sometimes with the help with his own hands yes, but also without.

You want a great Chiropractor that knows what he is doing? Spyros is the man with the heart….and hands of healing. I can’t say enough about this man. You want someone knowledgeable and your pain to go away come see Spyros, you’ll know what I’m talking about for yourself through your own body.

Thanks Spyros !

Path to recovery

I first met Dr. Karelis in June 2015 to address my pain with shin splints. After trying several treatment options I decided to seek help from Dr. Karelis. His professionalism and true desire to help me was evident at my first visit. He is very thorough and explains every step of his treatment.

Within the first week I began to feel relief while continuing to train and play hockey.
Thank You for quickly putting me on the path to recovery and helping me to continue what I enjoy.

Real Pleasure Getting Help From People That Care!

Thanks so much for your help and sincere concerns in wanting to get me up and running again. Real pleasure getting help from people that care!

Chris D.

My Pain Was Gone

In March 2015, I had double knee replacement at the age of 85.
It was very successful. However, I was left with some residual pain in the knees, which I mentioned to my Surgeon at my final check up in July. He said that I needed new orthotics due to the fact that his operation had straightened my legs. My legs had been slightly bowed from my severe osteo-arthritis.

I had new orthotics made for me by Dr. Karelis of Integrated Health. Within two days of receiving the orthotics my pain was gone, and I am able to walk longer distances.

I heartily recommend the orthotics made by Dr.Spyros Karelis.

John F.

Helped Me Understand

Dr. Spyros Karelis help me understand the various issues with my knee and explained step-by-step how I can go about improving my status. After five weeks of treatment which included custom orthotics, foot & ankle examination and low-back treatment. I feel revived and am in much less pain. My Sincere thanks.

Excellent Treatment!

Indrani G.

Back Pain

I’ve struggled with back pain for most of my adult life. After seeing a chiropractor, who I felt had less than good intentions, my friend recommended Spyros. He was able to easily identify the source of my issues and targeted the problem area. Within a few weeks I felt better, and when I would see him and no adjustment was necessary, it would be no charge. I highly recommend the Integrated Health & Wellness Centre.

Diana B.

Real Comfort

Shoulder And Neck Are Pain Free

I first came to Integrated Health to address an issue that occurred from an injury on my shoulder and neck. Dr. Spyros took me in and after explaining everything thoroughly, we started treatments. My pain started disappearing even after my first visit. Less than six months later, I was pain free. Although pain free, I still see Dr. Spyros on regular basis to always keep me “aligned”.

Stavros P. (March 2015)

Cube 4 Medical K-Laser Worked

Thrilled with the results

Since my knee arthroscopy, I have been seeing Dr. Karelis for the laser therapy and I am thrilled with the results, pain has decreased significantly. I have almost no pain at all.

Dr. Spyros Answered Our Million Questions

“Dr. Spyros saw my 10yr old Grace for about 6wks. She had 2.5yrs of constant pain around her ankle and felt the need to crack that area every 10mins to relieve the pressure she felt there. She is pain free now for over two months now. And was pain free within 3-4wks of treatment. She got custom orthotics for her shoes and in those 6 weeks saw Doc twice a week for laser light therapy and 10min ankle/ balancing exercises to strengthen her ligaments. Doc was great!! He explained everything to us every step of the way and answered our million questions. We would highly recommend anyone who needs an expert and experienced chiropractor who is kind, patient and honest.”

Chiropractic Care Changes Lives

“Following is a brief testimony about my experience so far with chiropractic care. A few months ago, my right arm and shoulder were in pain because of accumulated bad postures at the computer. My Family Doctor referred me to a chiropractor which is a remarkable event coming from the traditional medical society.

The chiropractor started regular treatments and after 2 months I had no longer pain and numbness in the right arm and shoulder. This was more remarkable than expected since it was obtained without any medication and/or painkillers. I have to continue to behave myself correctly with the computer and with my health in general.

I will continue to see the chiropractor and also, my Family Doctor at regular time intervals. I have to stop now writing this testimony on the computer to maintain my right arm in good shape.

Kind Regards,”


“Dr. Karelis treated my aching feet with Shock Wave. Really. After a treatment or two the pain subsided. Now we are at treatment six, the plain is mostly gone.

I have been going to doctors with my feet for 15 years, or so. How come nobody told me about this magic cure?”
