What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic health care is one of the largest primary contact health care professions in Canada. Over 4.5 million Canadians use the services of a Chiropractor each year for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints and their effect on the nervous system. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercise, to utilize other non-invasive therapies and to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. You do not need a referral to visit a Doctor of Chiropractic.
How can a Doctor of Chiropractic Care help me?
Your chiropractor uses safe, non-invasive techniques to restore motion to dysfunctional spinal and extremity joints. Adjustments are the most common form of treatment in which a Chiropractor will remove subluxations by precisely realigning misaligned bones that have been causing nerve pressures or irritations. Your Chiropractor may also use a range of other treatments including soft tissue mobilization, stretching, exercise programs and biomechanical support to address the causes which have lead to the symptoms of pain and muscle injury. The primary goal of your Chiropractor is not only to provide pain relief but to address the underlying causes of the pain and injury.
