What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.
For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.
There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care:
Please arrive early for your first visit as there will be paperwork to complete.
Your initial visit will take anywhere from 30-50 minutes depending on the complexity of your case. During this time you will be asked a series of questions about your overall health and questions about your primary areas of concern. Special testing such as range of motion analysis, foot scans, posture analysis and orthopedic testing will be performed to gain a better understanding of your back and body.
The doctor will review your results with you and create a treatment plan best suited to your needs. Treatments may include moist heat applied to the back, chiropractic adjustments using manual methods, drop table or activator device, stretches and exercises and nutritional support.
