Chiropractic Care is a primary contact health care profession emphasizing differential diagnosis, patient-centered care and research, with expert knowledge in spine and musculoskeletal health. One of the largest primary contact health care professions in Canada, chiropractors treat approximately 4.5 million Canadians annually with drug free, non-invasive, hands-on care.
Chiropractors assess disorders related to the spine, nervous system, and joints of the extremities and provide a diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation, also referred to as adjustment, is to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints, thereby reducing pain and increasing joint function and improve overall health.
Manipulation/adjustment is a highly controlled procedure, which rarely causes discomfort. A chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Many people will notice an improvement in their symptoms immediately after a treatment. To help patients attain their wellness potential, the chiropractor can also design a program that includes exercise and nutritional advice.
