Chiropractic

More than 2.5 million Ontario patients rely on chiropractic care each year to help them live healthy, active lives.

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health treatment that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and how these disorders affect your general health. Disorders include back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and headaches, to name a few. Chiropractic doctors are specifically trained to detect and correct these disorders, often before the patient is aware they exist.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After learning about your medical history, performing an examination, and establishing a diagnosis, your chiropractor will develop 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 healthcare is the primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is recommended, your chiropractor will coordinate care with other healthcare professionals as needed.

Four reasons you should try chiropractic healthcare:

1

Lower Back Pain

Spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for both acute and chronic back pain. For acute back pain up to 6 weeks persistency, spinal manipulative therapy, both as an independent treatment and in conjunction with standard medical care, can help decrease pain and improve functioning. For chronic back pain, spinal manipulative therapy has a modest effect, with 12 treatments yielding the most favourable results in terms of improving functioning and reducing pain.

2

Neck Pain

Spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for both acute and chronic back pain. For acute back pain up to 6 weeks persistency, spinal manipulative therapy, both as an independent treatment and in conjunction with standard medical care, can help decrease pain and improve functioning.

Plantar Fasciitis (Foot Pain)
