What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic Care uses a number of non-invasive approaches to treat issues and disorders with the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems, including the spine. Under the care of a Doctor of Chiropractic (commonly referred to as a licensed chiropractor or chiropractor), treatments can help with everything from:
- Acute and chronic back and neck pain
- Migraine headaches
- Other types of pain and strain
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- And more…
How can Chiropractic Care help me?
After understanding your specific concerns, a licensed chiropractor will determine a course of treatment without the use of medication or surgery. They may use manipulation, soft tissue therapies, rehabilitation exercises and more.
How long are the appointments and what does a typical chiropractic treatment consist of?
Your first visit will be an assessment, and will be scheduled for approximately 45 minutes. During the assessment, the licensed chiropractor will ask you questions about your symptoms and health history. The licensed chiropractor will also complete an evaluation of potential issues with your spine, muscles, joints or nervous system. The evaluation may include tests to analyse your posture and movement, along with a hands-on evaluation of motion—specifically how your spine moves in alignment with the rest of your body. The licensed chiropractor will then explain the diagnosis and recommended treatment plan.
We recommend you wear comfortable clothes for your chiropractic appointments.
The follow up visits will be scheduled for 15 minutes where your licensed chiropractor will provide treatments according to the plan you and they discussed during your assessment.
