Chiropractors are one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Ontario. The care is a non-invasive, hands-on health care profession that diagnoses, treats, and helps and ultimately prevents disorders and conditions related to the spine, nervous and musculoskeletal system.

QUALIFICATIONS

A Doctor of Chiropractic has undergone a minimum of three years of undergraduate education; four years full-time academic and clinical study at a Chiropractic institution, including a one-year internship. A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment if appropriate.

APPROACH

Doctors of chiropractic use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. This includes:

Taking a thorough history, physical and diagnosing a patient’s area of complaint.

Developing and carrying out a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan.

Chiropractors believe in treating the individual as a whole and focus on how a patient’s musculoskeletal and nervous system function in relation to the whole body. The individual treatment plan may incorporate:

Chiropractic adjustments or mobilizations of the affected joint
Soft tissue release techniques
Cold laser, IFC or ultrasound, acupuncture and rehabilitative exercise

Chiropractic care is a very cost effective approach to treating both neck and back pain. Back pain is the leading cause of:

Medical visits and hospitalizations
Restricted physical activity
Use of prescription (and non-prescription) drugs

Low back pain affects 85% of working populations and 50% of sufferers claim back pain affects their quality of life and limits recreational activities.

Osteopathy is the practice of restoring motion to all parts of the body so as to regain healthy function. Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

Restore motion
