Our  —  



Dr. Payne has helped many people over his 25-year career. Some patients have come in with a specific goal, like completing an Iron Man, and others simple want to be more mobile walking to the grocery store. 

Every person has a different story, a different body, and a different set of goals. Our job is to help you discover what you are capable of! 

AVANT Chiropractic testimonial


"When I first visited Dr. Payne I had just commenced my triathlon training. I was experiencing lower back pain from spending countless hours sitting at the office. My body was not reacting positively to my newfound desire to pursue endurance training and I feared I would not be able to continue. Dr. Payne was able to immediately help by pointing out corrective actions I can do to improve my posture and core.


Four months after my first visit to the clinic, I completed my first ever triathlon, an Ironman 70.3 in Muskoka. I found Dr. Payne to be knowledgeable, professional and most importantly helpful. Thank you!”

"When I came, I was in a very difficult state. I could not walk properly. I did not know what to do, and my quality of life was becoming less and less. And so I came here.


I was able to have a treatment very, very fast. The first three weeks I did not see too much difference and I was starting to feel more and more anxious, but Dr. Payne explained it to me and showed it to me. He's really professional and I'm able to communicate with him. I was getting better, and improving.


I'm starting my six months now and I'll be coming just once a week and I don't have any pain. I can do mostly all of the things I used to do before. I'm really grateful for all of the services I've had here."

AVANT Chiropractic testimonial


“I've had a history of health problems and injuries including a diagnosis of lupus erythematosus in my 20's, psoriatic arthritis in my 40's, and struck by cars on two separate occasions. These resulted in a great deal of limitation in my mobility as well as being on several different medications for many, many years.

I've been a patient for over 15 years and this has helped me maintain my mobility to the extent that I walk a great deal, year-round. On several occasions I've even walked all the way home from downtown – a 3-hour jaunt! I've also gone off all my medications except one! When I feel a cold coming on, the first place I head is to my chiropractor as he can open up my airways and relieve sinus pressure which precludes me from taking the usual cold/flu over-the-counter medications.”


"I can recall the very first time I called Dr. Payne's office to make an appointment for my terrible backache, sciatica and lots of neck pain.  I was in agony and was very concerned that I won't have any help there either.  How very wrong I was?


Dr. Payne and his staff are wonderful; friendly, compassionate and caring people.  I was checked out and realized that posture had a lot to do with what was wrong, and I was amazed at the way I am now compared to those early days.


I am not just a number in the clinic, I can ask questions and get answers.  My visits are now once a week, and I have improved tremendously from that first time.  Thank you Dr. Payne for your care and encouragement and thanks to your caring staff.  I am so very grateful to you."
