I had middle back (mild scoliosis) and hip problems (one leg slightly shorter than the other) and Chris did adjustments to my spine and hips and now all of my pain is gone! My regret is that I didn't do this year's ago. At the same time I don't know if I would have found Dr. Chris who is an extremely talented Chiropractor. I believe it takes years of skill building to know exactly the right amount of pressure to give in order to provide good relief but to also not cause further injury. I have given my family doctor his name so that she can refer all of her patients to him. I look forward to future "touch ups" to keep me running smoothly. Leon S
Testimonial I have had such a positive experience at Apex! My visits there were for Shock Wave treatment. I had been in excruciating pain for almost 8 months, physio, Orthotics nothing was helping. Then my co-worker suggested the shock wave treatment. I have to say, it was the best relief for the pain I was experiencing! Thank you Corey & Dr. Chris. Also thank you to all the front end staff, they are very friendly and always ready to help.

I first brought my son to see Dr. Gordon-Tenant approximately two years ago for treatment of a hockey related neck injury. He is extremely conscientious, is terrific with children, and Dr. Gordon-Tenant has helped my son and daughter recover from several sports injuries. Recently, I also became a patient after a lower back injury, and I am very impressed by both his knowledge and technique, which have helped shorten my recovery time. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon-Tenant.
I have had 2 major spinal chord surgeries. I recently had a severe lower back pain. Dr. Gordon-Tennant was my attending chiropractor and boy what an amazing job he did. I felt the difference right after I stepped out of the clinic. Highly recommended.
I have been seeing Dr. Tennant for 6 months. I find him very kind and very knowledgeable. I have many areas of pain and he is successfully dealing with each one as it comes up. He listens and treats accordingly. He has many different approaches to problems and spends time researching problem areas. He has helped me tremendously.
My daughter age 12, my mother-in-law, and myself were involved in a car accident. Our family physician referred us to see a chiropractor and RMT. Dr. Gordon-Tennant has been treating each of us for whiplash. Dr. Gordon-Tennant is very knowledgable, kind, and considerate. He asks many questions, in order to find the most beneficial treatment for each person. I highly recommend his services!
We are very happy with the results to date. Fabulous staff!
I have been a patient of Dr. Chris Gordon-Tennant for almost 5 years. He has been a god send for my recovery from shoulder surgery and adhesions. Using ART to help reduce the adhesions so that I could get better mobility. He has also has helped me on a regular basis maintain better balance with my neck and shoulder pain with TENS and Chiropratic adjustments.
I had been suffering for 5 years with pain down my left leg. I had been to a number of therapists and even had acupuncture treatments. Even though these treatments helped me, they all ended up being a temporary fix. Apex was recommended to me by a friend. I was sceptical at first, but I convinced myself to try treatment just one last time. During my assessment at Apex the doctor was very professional and had a quick response with treatment I had never been exposed to. This treatment has helped to virtually eliminate my pain and seems to have lasting effects. I am extremely pleased with the way I was treated and the professional manner in which my condition is being managed. Thanks to all for your help and guidance in putting together an effective plan. I will most certainly recommend your establishment to my circle of friends.
As a member of the health professions, I was skeptical of the usefulness of acupuncture, but thought I would give it a try, when numerous other attempts, such as targeted exercises did not relieve a pain deep in the gluteus maximus of my right leg when walking any distance, and a buckling knee when I walked down stairs - both of which have plagued me for several years. Now after only 6 sessions of acupuncture by Dr. Chris Gordon-Tennant I can honestly say that my leg is much stronger and supportive when I go down stairs and that pain in my buttock is gone. I am grateful for the excellent therapy and the very pleasant support from all the staff at Apex. Thank-you to you all...Dr. Katharine J, BScN, Ed.D.
Back in early 2012, I was experiencing excruciating back pain. I had to take time off work. I was on painkillers. I spent several hours a day lying on my because the pain was unbearable. I went through Physiotherapy, consulted with a Sports Medicine Doctor and even visited a Neurologist. Although these Professionals were well intended, it wasn't until I acquired the services of Dr. Gordon-Tenant that I started feeling better. Dr. Gordon Tenant was the only one who was able to diagnose the root cause of my problem and had the knowledge and expertise to help me get back to feeling normal. I started seeing positive results immediately. Dr. Gordon Tenant is friendly, informative, personable and easy to talk to. He explains thing very well and I feel safe and secure with all of his practices. I still continue to see him for regular back maintenance even though he is at a different clinic that is further away from my home. Dr. Chris is worth it!
An open letter of thanks to Dr. Chris Gordon Tennant.
Recently, while on a trip to Jamaica, I experienced some injuries that caused me to return home in a wheelchair. The pain in my back and hip made it almost impossible to walk or sit comfortably. The pain meds were helping marginally. I spent many sleepless nights trying to find a comfortable position, that would at least lessen the pain. Finally after seeing my doctor and getting xrays done, I was referred for therapy and chose to come to you.
I made an appointment with Apex Physiotherapy and Chiropractic at 1450 Kingston Rd in Pickering, where you did a very thorough evaluation and started my treatment. I was amazed at the result of that very first treatment, I came to you limping and in pain, but left pain free. You demonstrated excellence in your knowledge of how the human body works and your treatment proved that as well. Even though you had not yet seen the xrays, your evaluation was very correct.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend your services to friends, family or foes, in fact to anyone who may be in need of same. It is an awesome feeling to be able to live a normal existence, pain free, once again! Thank you so much for your contribution in that regard! God bless you and your staff and grant success in all your future endeavours.
I had injured my neck and lost all movement in any direction. I was able to see Dr. Christopher 1st thing the next morning. It turns out that his success rate with neck injuries is tremendous. This could have easily been a six week injury but after one week of combined acupuncture and chiropractic I was 80% recovered. Thank you Dr. Chris, I will highly recommend you!
I started seeing Dr. Gordon-Tennant in April for a shoulder injury. Dr. Gordon-Tennant was understanding and compassionate when assessing my injury, and is always friendly and sincere in his desire to see you recover. As recovery progressed, Dr. Gordon-Tennant adapted my treatment for maximum results, and I am now pain free and back to all of my regular activities. The success I had with my shoulder eventually led me to telling Dr. Gordon-Tennant about a nagging knee issue. Dr. Gordon-Tennant went above and beyond my expectations to get me back on track, and I am thrilled to say that I have just completed my 4th pain free run in close to 3 years. My only regret is that I did not come in sooner!
