Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

If back or joint problems are impacting your daily life, chiropractic care can help you move and feel better, without the need for drugs or surgery.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health-care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system: the brain, spine, nerves, muscles and joints. A regulated health profession, chiropractic is practiced by licensed doctors and recognized by statute throughout Canada and the U.S.


How it Works

Chiropractors specialize in chiropractic manipulation, or adjustments, to restore normal motion and function to vertebrae and other joints. Proven both safe and effective, an adjustment involves using the hands to manipulate a specific area. These precise, highly skilled movements loosen the joint to relieve muscle spasms, pain and nerve irritation, helping you to feel better, naturally.

Treating the Whole Body

Commonly perceived as a quick fix for neck or back pain, chiropractic care is, in fact, much more. With their thorough knowledge of how spinal problems impact overall health, chiropractic doctors provide expert diagnosis, treatment and preventative care. A chiropractor can develop a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Why See a Chiropractor?

Patients commonly seek chiropractic care for several reasons:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Limited range of motion in back, shoulder, neck or limbs

While chiropractic care is frequently the primary treatment for spinal conditions, it can also complement or support treatments for other health issues. Plus, it can provide symptomatic relief from chronic conditions.

For General Health

Even if you don’t suffer from painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help to maintain the health of your spine and joints. A healthy spine is critical to your overall health as it protects the nervous system, which carries messages from the brain to every part of the body. Any interruption to this system can disrupt your body’s ability to function at its best.
