Meet Our Chiropractor

Dr. Hafeez Merani
Owner of Metrotown Family Chiropractic.
Conventional treatments didn’t help much, and I was frustrated. Then, something amazing happened. A friend introduced me to his father who was a chiropractor. I was skeptical but shocked to see the difference chiropractic care made. It was a turning point! I learned exercises and stretches that significantly reduced my pain.
This experience inspired me to become a chiropractor and help others manage their pain. Now, I’m dedicated to staying healthy and active using what I’ve learned. I hope my story inspires you too!

Frequently Asked Questions
Seeing a chiropractor can be beneficial for individuals experiencing musculoskeletal issues or joint pain, such as back, neck, or joint discomfort. Chiropractors are trained healthcare professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the spine and nervous system. They use hands-on techniques, adjustments, and therapeutic exercises to align the spine, alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being. Whether it’s due to poor posture, sports injuries, repetitive strain, or chronic conditions, seeking chiropractic care can help individuals find relief, restore proper function, and ultimately improve their quality of life. Before your initial treatment, Dr. Merani will go through a full diagnosis to see if chiropractic care is best for your condition.
Chiropractic, Registered Massage Therapy (RMT), and Physiotherapy are distinct healthcare professions. Chiropractors focus on diagnosing and treating neuromuscular disorders with spinal adjustments. RMTs use hands-on manipulation of soft tissues to relieve pain and improve circulation. Physiotherapists aim to improve physical function and mobility through exercises and various therapeutic techniques. Each profession has its unique approach, and patients may benefit from their specialized treatments depending on their specific musculoskeletal conditions and preferences. In most cases, these professionals work together in multidisciplinary settings to provide comprehensive care.
Chiropractic adjustments can vary in sensation from person to person and depend on factors like pain tolerance, the specific condition being treated, and the chiropractor’s technique. For most individuals, chiropractic adjustments are not painful and may bring immediate relief from discomfort. The process involves the chiropractor applying controlled force to the joints, typically in the spine, to improve mobility and alignment. While some may feel mild pressure or slight discomfort during the adjustment, it is generally well-tolerated, and many patients experience a sense of relief afterward. Some individuals might experience mild soreness or stiffness after the adjustment, but this usually subsides within a day or two.
Open communication with the chiropractor is essential. If you have concerns about pain or any existing medical conditions, discuss them during the initial consultation. A skilled chiropractor will listen to your feedback and tailor their techniques to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Overall, chiropractic care is typically considered a safe and effective approach for managing various musculoskeletal issues and promoting overall well-being.
The recovery time from injuries with the assistance of chiropractic care can vary based on the nature and severity of the injury, as well as the individual’s overall health and response to treatment. Chiropractic care offers a personalized approach, where each patient receives an individualized treatment plan tailored to their specific needs. Under the guidance of Dr. Merani, patients will undergo regular reassessments as they progress in their healing journey, or as advised by the chiropractor. These reassessments ensure that the treatment plan is adjusted accordingly to optimize recovery. Additionally, patients will have dedicated time to sit down with Dr. Merani to discuss their progress thoroughly, gaining valuable insights into their healing process and understanding how they should continue with the treatment for the best possible outcome. This personalized approach and open communication foster an environment of trust and support, ultimately enhancing the recovery process.
For MSP to cover part of your chiropractic visit, you will need to be eligible and have applied for these benefits. MSP, once approved, will cover $23 per visit, for 10 visits each calendar year. This is for all modalities (ie. RMT and Chiropractic) combined. You can apply directly through the government website.
