Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. Chiropractors employ manual therapy, joint manipulation/mobilizations, adjustments, modalities, various soft tissue therapies, acupuncture, exercises, advice and education to treat a variety of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. Even if you do not have a family doctor our chiropractors can be great resources to help you navigate the health care system to ensure you get the best care possible.
Physical Therapies are passive techniques and modalities used by our healthcare professionals to help treat your health concern. These therapies are incorporated by our doctors into your care based on your specific health needs which may include:
Exercise Rehabilitation is an exercise or conditioning program used to improve strength, fitness, health and well-being for those suffering from musculoskeletal issues through active participation with treatment. It is an integral part of any treatment plan and scientifically effective for arthritis, chronic pain, spine injuries, sport injuries, work injuries, car accidents, and for those recovering from general orthopaedic surgery.
Exercise Rehabilitation focuses on functional improvement and correction of muscle imbalances. These exercise programs include muscle stretching, joint mobility and muscular strengthening and endurance. Depending on the problem or condition that you are suffering from, the rehabilitation can often be home based but for more of a comprehensive approach it can be gym based.
Medical Acupuncture is a safe and clinically effective treatment that involves an insertion of thin needles in particular anatomical structures, such as, nerves and receptors of the body. The insertion of these thin needles stimulate responses in the central nervous system.
Medical Acupuncture is the biomedical adoption of Chinese acupuncture methods although it is not the same as traditional Chinese methods. Known as a simple and effective approach based on neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and pathophysiology, Medical Acupuncture does not involve tongue or pulse diagnosis. Instead, diagnosis is attained through physical examination and the patient’s history. Anatomical points relevant to the client’s condition are selected for needling.
It's important to us that the care we provide fits your specific needs, preferences, lifestyle, and budget.
