HAPPY NEW YEAR from RUSSELL HILL CLINIC!
We hope you had wonderful holidays and some time for yourself to rest and recharge.
Our *new* front door is now operational! All patients and visitors may come through the front door again.
The lobby area is still being worked on, however, so please be careful around the construction and workers.
Once again, we thank you so much for your patience and flexibility during this time and we look forward to seeing you!

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE for DECEMBER
We are undergoing some necessary renovations this month so we will be ready for the new year.
For the time being, we DO NOT have a front entrance to the main floor or upstairs of the clinic. The entire front section of the clinic is off limits, except for special circumstances. (But we will finally be getting a new front door that works properly! Yay!)
In lieu of this, we ask that you please enter through the BACK PORCH – 565 LANE S EGLINTON W WARREN RD. There will be signage around the clinic as reminders.
*Note: if you are here for pilates, please come through the back porch door and head on down to the usual front staircase.
The back porch has 4 stairs – if you are not able to use stairs at this time, please let us know so that we can make accommodations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and sincerely thank you for your understanding and patience. As with most renovations, this is a bit of a fluid situation. The pains of construction will be well worth it in the end, as we look forward to the final result!
A few things to keep in mind regarding the back door:
Give yourself a few extra minutes to find the back entrance.
Please be careful coming down the laneway - it may be very icy despite our best efforts to salt and shovel.
Please still check in at the front desk before your appointment (and after your appointment for payment).
Let us know if you have any questions, concerns or if you need to reschedule. ☺
Again, thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility! As always, we will do our best to keeps things running as smoothly as possible.

Fall is officially here! New TMJ patients welcome!
Fall is about pumpkin everything (pumpkin spice lattes?), cozy sweaters, and apples. But... if the thought of biting into an apple makes you grab your jaw and wince - you might need TMJ treatment!
Who can help me with my jaw pain?

Having recently concluded his postdoctoral residency with Dr. Jeffrey Mannheimer, PT, PHD, PC, CCTT, Brett is highly skilled at examining, evaluating, and treating all forms of TMJ disorders, facial pain and cervicogenic headaches. He is an affiliate member of the American Academy of Orofacial Pain and participates in their mentorship program. He also partners with dentists and orofacial pain specialists to develop an integrative plan of care to promote optimal outcomes for patients.
Ready for relief?
Whether acute or chronic, Brett can help you reduce the headaches, improve the mobility and restore the function of your jaw to get you back to a pain-free life.
So gratefall you dropped by! A big hug from all of us at Russell Hill to all of you out there.
Stay safe and healthy, and don't to forget carve out some you time now and then.
What is TMJ?
The Temporomandibular Joints connect your mandible (lower jaw) to your skull. You have one on each side and they are the most frequently used joints in the body (think about it - you move your jaw every time you eat and every time you speak... and those are two of our favourite things to do!). From a biomechanical point of view, they are also the most complex!
Movement as medicine... These hypopressive excersises help!
