Osteoporosis is known as the "silent thief", deteriorating your bones without any symptoms. Get checked before it's too late.


Osteoporosis is a disease in the bones that deteriorates  bone mass and tissue. This can lead to increased risk of injury and chronic pain.

Do you have thinning bones? While you may feel fine, you may have osteoporosis and not know it. Osteoporosis normally progresses without any symptoms. This page will help you understand this condition better.

Here are some of the most common questions we get:

How do we test for osteoporosis?
Sun Chiropractic utilizes Manitoba’s first and only MetriScan Bone Density System to test for Osteoporosis. The MetriScan is a digital x-ray scanner that performs Radiographic Absorptiometry to measure bone density.

The MetriScan provides a graphed T-Score and a Z-Score. These scores are the measurements utilized to see if you have osteoporosis.

How long does the test take?
The x-ray takes 1 second. The computer then analyzes the bone density and graphs your results which take about 8 minutes.

How long does it take to get results?
The results are provided immediately.

What is the cost of the test?
Your first bone density test is $65.00 which includes the x-ray, results and information portfolio.Your subsequent bone density tests (which are usually 1 to 3 years later) that are used for comparison and to check progress are $40.00.

I have been seeing Dr. Baron regularly for a recent injury and could not be happier with the care and service at Sun Chiropractic. Both my fiance and myself are patients and we are always very satisfied. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Baron does great work!

Before visiting Sun Chiropractic, I was nervous going because I had a bad experience with a chiropractor a year ago. All I have to say is WOW. Kimberley Castle was amazing. She was so thorough and explained everything to me. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked it. I love the follow up exercises and was happy that Kimberley was able to really pinpoint my pain and is now helping me to get better!!!

When I first met Dr. Minuk, I told him I was scared of chiropractors. He listened to my concerns and made sure I was completely comfortable before starting his assessment. I have recently been seeing Dr. Minuk weekly due to suffering migraines and an seeing improvements on the intensity and frequency of the migraines. This is now not the case. Thank you to the amazing front staff at Sun Chriopractic as well as Dr. Minuk for being so friendly and accommodating. Keep up the good work.

We love everything about Sun Chiropractic. We have been monthly patients of Dr. Kim Castle, ever since I was pregnant with my now five year old. She saved me from a very painful pregnancy and helped my newborn with any tummy issues. I continue to take my two children faithfully for their monthly checkups (myself included.) Couldn't imagine life without Dr. Castle and all of the amazing staff over there!

I’ve been in two car accidents in the past month. Both times hit from behind. Before I even called MPI I called Dr. Baron and he had me scheduled for the same day. The office staff are caring and helpful. Dr. Baron is thorough in his assessment, and he never rushes through anything. I feel completely at ease in his care.

I've had numerous injuries in the past 10 yrs and the staff at Sun Chiropractic couldn't have been more courteous and caring.  Dr Minuk is the epitomy of what a professional chiropractor should be. If you're looking for a friendly, caring, and compassionate chiropractic office, I HIGHLY recommend Sun Chiropractic.
