What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is one of Ontario’s largest primary-contact health care professions. It’s a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline focusing on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors provide diagnosis, treatment, and preventative care for issues of the spine, pelvis, nervous system, and joints.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
A combination of treatments are used in chiropractic and tailored to the individual patient. Chiropractors take into account your complete health history in order to diagnose musculoskeletal issues. Then your chiropractor develops and carries out a comprehensive treatment or management plan, recommending therapeutic exercises and other non-invasive therapies. Your chiropractor may also provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling. Chiropractic care may also be used to complement or support medical treatment, relieving musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Relief for Chronic Conditions
For chronic conditions, chiropractic care may offer symptomatic relief. Some patients have noted that treating musculoskeletal elements of chronic disorders with chiropractic care has improved general well-being.
