COVID-19 RESPONSE


We are very pleased to hear that our efforts to stay connected with you over this pandemic proved to be beneficial. We offered many online resources including tips and exercises, and had great virtual sessions making the most of a troubling situation. Since the first day we were forced to close, we began planning for the present and future. We have created a detailed and phased approach to our re-opening strategy and are now very excited to put it into practice and open our doors again! Click here for a detailed list of our action steps to be able to operate safely and responsibly. We are excited to be back and able to connect with you in person again. We take this very seriously and have implemented many protocols to keep you safe.




Dr. Chris’ Story: CEO & Founder


Dr. Chris founded The Centre for Fitness, Health and Performance in 1988. His father was a chiropractor and he followed closely in his footsteps. Since opening the practice he has treated over 20,000 patients and has grown his team of professionals to 27 and counting! He is also the creator of MuscleCare pain relief and the author of Stretching for Fitness, Health and Performance. Dr. Chris' motivation comes from his desire to help people eliminate pain as quickly as possible. He personally vets and trains each new therapist to ensure the highest quality of care for every patient.




The Jaw & Facial Pain Centre


In 2019, The Jaw & Facial Pain Centre became a reality. Dr. Sid Lisser is one of our senior chiropractors and has 17 years of jaw and facial pain experience. Our centre is one of the busiest facial pain centres in the city and receives direct referrals from many dentists, ENTs, and Mount Sinai’s Facial Pain Clinic - say goodbye to 12 month wait lists to treat your jaw related pain.
