Invest in yourself

Want to Understand Chiropractic?

Then be aware of these 7 principles:

Your body is under the control of the brain and nervous system as long as you are alive.

Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord is protected by the spinal column.

Spinal bones move out of normal alignment and interrupt your normal nerve flow.

This disruption of normal nerve flow is referred to as a vertebral subluxation.

It is vital to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur.

Chiropractors find subluxations, and by preforming a spinal adjustment, facilitate a return of normal nerve supply.

Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you!

Did you know…

What Is Chiropractic?

One of the largest primary care professions in Ontario, chiropractic is an evidence-based, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, 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 counselling.

One of the most common therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), which can comprise a variety of adjustment techniques. Specific training in SMT allows chiropractors to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

For many conditions, such as low back pain, chiropractic care is the primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, a chiropractor will coordinate care with other health care professionals. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions.

There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck or limbs

Chiropractic is a regulated health profession, recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces and American states. Almost 2.7 million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy, active lives.

Clinical Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points on the body, to various depths.

Research suggests that it can help relieve pain, and it is used for a wide range of other complaints.

Active Release Therapy

Active Release Therapy (ART), also called Active Release Technique, is a non-invasive manual therapy technique that works to correct soft tissue restrictions that cause pain and mobility issues. The goal is to break down scar tissue and adhesions in order to optimize function in the body.

The technique can be applied to both acute and chronic conditions involving the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial pain shows up in all sorts of different ways: you could have lost some flexibility after an injury, noticed painful “knots” in your muscles that are restricting your movement or have ongoing pain in your legs, shoulder, hips or back.

Maybe you’ve tried other treatments with little or no success. Myofascial release therapy could be the answer to your chronic pain.

Myofascial release therapy is a therapeutic approach that can be used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. It’s a hands-on technique that works to relax, lengthen and realign your fascia. The goal is to bring you pain relief, as well as give you back your full range of motion.

Manual Adjusting

This is the most commonly used of all chiropractic techniques and is the one most familiar to patients. The diversified adjustment entails a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that usually results in a cavitation of a joint (quick, shallow thrusts that cause the popping noise often associated with a chiropractic adjustment). As the name implies, the diversified technique can be used to adjust many of the joints in the body.

What is Chiropractic Manipulation ?

chiropractic
Chiropractic manipulation is a complementary medical practice that treats problems with the musculoskeletal system. Its main focus is spine care.

The musculoskeletal system is made up of a person’s muscles, bones, joints, cartilage, and tendons. The Musculoskeletal system supports a person’s body, allows them to move, and protects their organs.
The word chiropractic came from the Greek words cheir (hands) and praxis (practice). So as the name suggests, it is a hands-on therapy.
Chiropractic manipulation is the procedure of application of pressure to a person’s spine or other parts of their body by a qualified chiropractic doctor. This pressure allows a chiropractor to adjust and correct body alignment.
Chiropractic manipulation aims to reduce chronic pain and improve mechanical function, or the way a person moves.
Chiropractic Adjustments
The chiropractor examines the patient physically, focusing on their spine. The chiropractor sometimes may perform other tests, such as X-rays, to determine the necessary treatment.
Treatment normally involves using the hands to quickly apply controlled force to a joint. The aim of the bowmanville chiropractic care is to improve the quality and range of physical movement.

Effectiveness of Chiropractic Manipulation

The best thing about receiving chiropractic manipulation is that it is completely drug free path for healing the body naturally. The growing evidence has shown that this treatment is good for:
Neck Pain
Lower Back Pain
Chest Pain
Headaches
Improved Mental Clarity
Bowel Regularity
Arthritis & Joint Pain
Blood Pressure
