Are you looking for a chiropractor in London, Ontario? Look no further! Dr. Mark is a former high-level athlete and has suffered from chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain due to many sports-related injuries. Chiropractic care helped change his life and it could change yours too!
As a teenager playing Junior "B" hockey locally with the Strathroy Rockets and London Nationals, he regularly sought help from a chiropractor to help heal various injuries and keep him playing at his best. He was amazed at how chiropractic care helped to eliminate his pain and keep him in the game. After graduating from Western University here in London, Ontario, Dr. Mark jumped at the opportunity to attend chiropractic school so he could help people get out of pain and get the most out of their lives just as his chiropractor had always helped him. He graduated summa cum laude in 2010 from The University of Western States in Portland, Oregon with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and has been a practising chiropractor in the London, Ontario area since early 2011. A firm believer in lifelong learning, Dr. Butkus recently graduated from the Master of Clinical Science (Interprofessional Pain Management) degree program at Western University.
In his spare time, Dr. Mark loves keeping healthy and active through martial arts (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu,) lifting weights, playing recreational hockey, growing hot peppers, spending time with his beautiful wife and son, and walking their energetic Siberian husky.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."

Our approach at True Motion Chiropractic is very simple. We want to get you out of pain and back to doing the things you love to do. This begins by listening to you explain your problem, performing a thorough examination, forming the correct diagnosis, and proposing an appropriate plan of management.
The initial phase of care is typically to get you out of pain. Treatment is usually centered around chiropractic to restore joint mobility and myofascial release to break up scar tissue and increase soft tissue functionality. Used in conjunction, these treatments provide the body an environment to heal itself faster and give you more lasting results.
The next phase of treatment is rehabilitation. Once you are out of pain it is essential to start strengthening weak muscles and reprogramming incorrect movement patterns. Exercises are centered around regaining function, not only to help get you back to living your life, but ensuring that your problem has a much less likelihood to return in the future.
The final phase of treatment is wellness care. After pain has diminished and function returned, it is essential to maintain your physical capacity and catch any developing problems early before they have a chance to develop into larger ones. Much like going to the dentist for wellness check-ups on a regular basis is recommended, the same goes for the body. Preventative maintenance goes a long way in keeping you healthy, active, and functional.
a system of complementary medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of dysfunction of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are held to cause other disorders by affecting muscles and nerves.
We know that finding the right chiropractor can be a long and stressful process. It shouldn't be. We pledge to ALWAYS place the needs of you, the patient, first when it comes to any treatment or care recommendations. Rest assured that any treatment proposed or performed will always have your best interest in mind.
If at any point during the initial assessment Dr. Butkus sincerely feels that you would not benefit from chiropractic care or your condition would be better helped by seeing another healthcare provider, you do not owe anything for the visit. Also, if you feel during the initial visit that Dr. Butkus would not be a good fit for helping manage your unique health care needs, you do not owe anything for the visit. What this means is that there is absolutely NO RISK to find out if we can help you. What are you waiting for?
