People often associate chiropractic care with adjustments of the spine, but it involves much more than that. Chiropractors assess, diagnose and treat conditions related to the spine, nervous system, and joints. They use a variety of treatment methods to facilitate recovery. Chiropractors also educate patients about injury prevention, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, as well as promote health and wellness.
In Ontario, Chiropractors are regulated by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario. They are highly trained professionals who have completed a university degree, a four year Doctor of Chiropractic program, as well as passed rigorous provincial and national licensing examinations.
You may wish to consult a chiropractor if you are experiencing pain from; a work related injury, car accident, fall, sport activity, poor posture, improper lifting, gardening and more.
What to expect on your first visit to a chiropractor? A chiropractor will perform a comprehensive assessment, provide a diagnosis and develop a plan of management for your injury or condition.
Treatment programs are individualized for each patient, based on specific needs and nature of the problem. A chiropractic treatment may include joint adjustment, mobilization, and soft tissue techniques. It may also include; modality therapy such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, laser and acupuncture, as well as rehabilitative exercises and education.
