Chiropractic focuses on conditions that impact our neuromusculoskeletal system, particularly as it relates to the spine and the influences these conditions can have on our overall health.
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system.
In order to have a thorough and complete range of motion our joints need to be in correct alignment. When the joints are misaligned it not only limits our range of motion and function, but if left unchecked and uncorrected it can lead to other health consequences. Chiropractors can help people overcome their discomfort and restore spinal function through chiropractic adjustments, mobilization, therapeutic strategies and modalities, exercise and lifestyle advice. Reducing inflammation and pain while improving range of motion and mobility is the main goal.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments based on specific individualized needs. To determine a personalized strategy, chiropractors take an in-depth look at a person’s history and their current health. After a thorough examination they will make an informed diagnosis that allows them to develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan. Chiropractors work with each person to help treat individual needs, and to create and meet personalized health goals.
With regular chiropractic care some patients may experience improved range of motion, improved posture and digestion, relief from headaches and migraines, relief from back and neck pain, injury prevention, better athletic performance, improved flexibility, relief of pregnancy-related pain, improved quality of sleep, increased energy, stress reduction, carpal tunnel syndrome relief, and improved knee, ankle and foot health.
Chiropractors are self-regulated health professionals, recognized by statute in all provinces and regulated in Ontario by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO). The education for a Doctor of Chiropractic includes a university undergraduate studies degree followed by an additional intensive four-year graduate program of academic and clinical education.
Chiropractors are specialists at assessing, diagnosing and treating disorders affecting the neuromusculoskeletal system, particularly of the spine and related joints. Loss of normal function in the spine may lead to various pain syndromes and disorders. Every function of the human body is directly, or indirectly, influenced by the nervous system originating from the spine. The state of spinal alignment and function and its relationship to the nervous system has influence over many other aspects of health resulting in signs and symptoms that might otherwise seem unrelated.
