Chiropractic is a regulated health profession recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces and American states. It is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Canada. Approximately 4.5 million Canadians rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy, active lives.
Chiropractors address the neuro-musculoskeletal system in a non-invasive, drug free manner. Many common problems are caused by dysfunction of the muscles, joints and nerves, or by various combinations of them. Chiropractors are primary health care practitioners who are trained to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent disorders of the muscles, joints and nerves by discovering the root of the problem. The word “Chiropractic” comes from ancient Greek and means “healing by hand.” We promote mobility in the spine and joints of the body, while relieving pressure from the nervous system through soft tissue techniques and adjustments which are unique to chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care, although associated mostly with spinal pain, can be used to assess and treat all musculoskeletal complaints. It is not uncommon for chiropractors to care for problems in the feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders and jaw.
Along with providing relief and preventative care, chiropractors also recommend therapeutic exercises and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.
