Our chiropractors combine over 60 years of clinical experience. We proudly feature the Pro Adjuster™ computerized system as part of our diagnostic and treatment program. One of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Ontario, chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline. Chiropractors provide diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are based on the individual needs of the patient. After taking a complete history and making a diagnosis, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, order x-rays (if necessary), recommend therapeutic exercises and other non-invasive therapies, as well as provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. For many conditions such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment.
What is chiropractic health care?
Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.
What is an adjustment?
An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustment loosens the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function.
What education do we have?
Following university studies, a chiropractor must then complete a rigorous four year, full time education program and pass comprehensive Canadian qualifying examinations in order to become licensed to practice. Chiropractors are regulated health professionals and the licensing college in each province is charged with protecting the public and setting standards for the profession.
When should I consider chiropractic care?
There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care. Work, accidents, sports injuries, household chores, even the stress of daily living can cause painful joint and spinal problems. Even if you do not have painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help you maintain healthy spine and joint function.
