Chiropractic Therapy

“One of the largest primary care professions in Ontario, chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.” Canadian Chiropractic Association

Chiropractors are educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions and associated neurological system. Following an initial assessment, if your chiropractor believes you can benefit from care, they will recommend a conservative course of treatment to help relieve pain and improve function, which may include manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, exercise, education, modalities (i.e. ultrasound or laser) and rehabilitation. Specific training in spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) allows chiropractors to provide adjustments using highly-skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

Chiropractors are also trained to provide nutritional counselling, as well as recommend injury prevention strategies. Your chiropractor will also work closely with your health care team including your MD if needed, physiotherapists, and massage therapist. Chiropractors are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.
