The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. Thomas Edison

Do you experience the following conditions?

In addition to back and neck pain, chiropractic is also very effective for treating medical conditions for people of all ages including babies and the elderly.

Many conditions are caused by subluxations (misalignments of spinal bones), which irritate or aggravate the nerves resulting in inefficient function of the nerve distribution in the areas the nerve innervates (connect to) . Chiropractic care can provide partial or full relief to many of these conditions:

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Colic (Babies) -often misdiagnosed
  • Sciatica
  • Intervertebral disc syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Headaches
  • Scoliosis
  • Brachial Neuralgia
  • Tendonitis
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome


Have you had a common injury?

(Automobile, Sports, Activity or Work- related)

The most common injuries are automobile (MVA) accidents, where the symptoms can be delayed by weeks or even months after the accident. Injury on duty which includes falls, lifting injuries, and others are also treatable by chiropractic. Chiropractic works well with sport injuries, and chiropractors can often improve performance. Some common injuries treated by chiropractors include:

  • Whiplash
  • Chronic injuries
  • Falling
  • Work injuries
  • Lifting injuries
  • Sport injuries

Chiropractic also extends to:

  • nutritional counselling
  • natural supplement protocols
  • active and passive care
  • exercise and other therapies
  • low level laser light therapies
  • functional analysis


How can CHIROPRACTIC help you?

The primary purpose of Chiropractors is to accurately diagnose the source of the problem. In order to correct the fixation and/or restriction, your chiropractor will perform an adjustment to that specific area to help restore the bodies range of motion. Chiropractors believe that in order to restore the body to function optimally, one has to correct the vertebral subluxation (bone out of alignment). This will trigger a chain of events to restore functionality to the nervous system which will result in the reversal of muscle spasms and the subsequent reduction of the pain experienced by the patient.

Chiropractic care helps maintain, prevent further injuries, and may stop or reverse many conditions for people of all ages, including babies and the elderly. If you suffer from back, neck, extremity (arms, legs) and other musculoskeletal pain, chiropractic care can effectively provide relief, without the need for medication.

“Adjustments” are usually the central part of chiropractic treatment. The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints.

Your chiropractor will most often make these adjustments to the spine, but he or she might adjust other joints, such as the ankle, knee, wrist, elbow, or shoulder in order to restore structural alignment or to improve joint function.

When being treated for a complaint such as back or neck pain, you will most likely receive a series of adjustments, separated by either a day or a few days, to incrementally reduce the pain and restore optimal function of the affected area.


“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” ― Hippocrates

The chiropractic experience

Like other healthcare practitioners, you will likely find the procedures and office ambience familiar, but many notice the distinctive appearance of the chiropractic treatment table. These tables are often quite elaborate to allow specific positioning and movement during spinal adjustments and thus assist the chiropractic treatment.

A first visit to the chiropractor consists of an initial consultation, physical examination, treatment, and follow-up plan.

What happens during the first Consultation?

Patients will complete a health questionnaire and answer questions about their health history. Patients are able to indicate where they are experiencing discomfort by marking the areas on a drawing of the human body.

What happens during the physical exam?

The chiropractor will start with a routine physical examination, followed by all necessary orthopaedic tests and neurological examinations to accurately diagnose the patients complaint.

Most often, a chiropractor will request X-rays of your spine prior to treatment. The purpose of the X-rays is to study the condition of the bony anatomy. It assists the chiropractor to understand the extent of wear, injuries or anomalies in your spine, and other factors that will guide the development of the treatment plan.

What goes into a treatment plan?

Following the above assessments, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan that takes into account:

  • Restoration of optimal functioning of your body
  • Nutritional counselling
  • Rehabilitation program for long term maintenance
  • Lifestyle and Ergonomic assessments
  • The ultimate goal is to treat the cause of the problem and not the symptoms.

What is Chiropractic?


Definition: Association of Chiropractic Colleges

“Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasises the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognise the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.”

Chiropractic is non-invasive and does not use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting the body to heal itself.

Chiropractors believe pain is the way our bodies communicate that something is wrong, and that we should proactively address the source of the pain and not mask the symptoms (typically through pain medications).

“Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.” – Hippocrates, 469-377 BC.
