Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is an important part of YOUR HEALTH. Chiropractic is a branch of health sciences which focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods, including x-rays and orthopaedic testing, to facilitate the diagnoses, treatment and prevention of disorders related to the spine, nervous system and joints, and will develop a comprehensive individual plan of management for each patient.

Our Chiropractic services include:

  • Joint manipulation and mobilization
  • Soft tissue treatments (primarily myofascial release techniques)
  • Active Release Techniques® (ART)
  • Graston® Technique
  • Strengthening and stretching exercises to help with rehabilitation and injury prevention
  • Custom orthotics to help with a variety of conditions from low back pain to plantar fasciitis

Chiropractic is a primary contact health care profession emphasizing differential diagnosis, patient-centered care and research, with expert knowledge in spine and neuromusculoskeletal health. Every day in Canada, over 120,000 people receive treatment from Doctors of Chiropractic. Your chiropractor is a doctor with over 7 years of university education in the art of hands-on healing. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments for your condition. They are specialists in using exact, gentle manipulations of your spine to make you feel great. Chiropractic treatment also includes diet and exercise programs and takes a holistic approach to help restore your body to its optimal health.

Chiropractic is a hands-on treatment that treats the patient by addressing the cause of a problem, not the symptoms. Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods, including x-rays and orthopedic testing, to facilitate the diagnoses, treatment and prevention of disorders related to the spine, nervous system and joints, and will develop a comprehensive individual plan of management for each patient.

Chiropractors use a drug-free manual approach to assess and treat patients with disorders related to the spine, extremities, and pelvis and their effects on the nervous system. Chiropractors specialize in treating all regions of the body, including shoulders, knees, ankles and wrists. Chiropractors can treat dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system with techniques such as joint manipulation, or adjustments (to help decrease pain and increase mobility), soft tissue techniques (to decrease scar tissue, and restore function), as well as prescribing strengthening, stretching and rehabilitation exercises to help restore function. Chiropractors can also give you strategies to help prevent future injuries, such as prescribing core strengthening exercises to help stabilize your spine and strengthen your abdominal muscles.
