With over 7,000 practicing chiropractors using drug free, non-invasive, and hands-on care to annually treat approximately four and a half million Canadians, chiropractic has become one of the fastest growing professions in recent years. A common misconception is that chiropractic patients are solely those that suffer from long-standing back pain. Although this may partly be true – back pain patients do make up a large portion of chiropractic patients – those with a wide variety of complaints find relief with chiropractic care. In addition to disorders related to the spine, those affecting the nervous system and the joints and muscles of the extremities can also be treated with chiropractic care. During the initial visit, your chiropractor will fully assess your complaint through a complete history and physical exam, and following a brief discussion of the exam findings and diagnosis, you will be provided various treatment options to choose from.
So whether you are young or elderly, suffering from long or short-term pain, or are an elite athlete or a "weekend warrior", chiropractic could be for you. Please feel free to call the clinic to set up an initial assessment, or stop by for a free consultation and have answered any questions you may have.
Conditions commonly seen and treated within the chiropractic profession include but are not limited to the following:
