Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the spine, nervous system, and joints of the extremities. Our chiropractors treat areas of decreased function through a non-invasive, drug-free and hands-on care to reduce pain and increase joint function, thereby improving your overall health. Chiropractors have completed a chiropractic program at an accredited institution, and have been licensed by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario.
Upon arrival at one of our clinics, you will receive an assessment through a comprehensive health history and detailed examination, resulting in a diagnosis and a recommended plan of care. Our chiropractors will outline a treatment plan that adapts to meet your specific needs, including mobilization of the joints, ultrasound, muscle release techniques, muscle stimulation and therapeutic exercises. Your treatment plan will also include recommended rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies, as well as nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling, if necessary, all of which will help you to attain your wellness potential.
