Precise Treatments for Back & Joint Pain

Chiropractors have a unique skill set to effectively treat your spine, muscles, joints, and nervous system. One of the most common treatments a chiropractor delivers are adjustments, but any treatment plan is customized to your needs.

Why See a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors aren’t just for back pain. Chiropractic methods can also treat your muscles, joints, and nervous system to help with various types of pain. Your chiropractor can treat chronic pain or sporadic pain from new injuries or life changes like pregnancy. Whatever the cause of your pain, we have your back.

The Chiropractic Process

Everyone has different needs, so we tailor our approach to you.

We begin with a full assessment of your injury, pain, or concern. Be prepared to discuss any past injuries, medical history, and any medications you take, so we have a full understanding of your health. We’ll also discuss your goals from treatment and how we can help optimize your quality of life. Then, we’ll do a full physical exam, which can include assessments like range of motion, strength, balance, neurological functioning, functional movements, and other targeted tests. After the full assessment, we’ll have a deep understanding of what’s causing your pain.

After the initial assessment, we’ll have a good idea of what is causing your pain or movement concerns. We’ll not only diagnose the problem, but we’ll also educate you and show you methods you can use to help prevent the injury from happening again. We make sure you’re fully involved in your treatment plan because patients who are more involved often experience better treatment outcomes.

Once we understand the problem, we will develop a personalized plan of care focused on treating the injury, while also educating you on how to prevent the injury from happening again. If it’s a chronic issue, we will equip you with the tools to minimize pain and manage symptoms. We make sure you’re fully involved and fully understand your treatment plan.

Every body is different, and many factors can influence healing. We continuously reassess your progress throughout your treatment to make sure it’s right for you. If expected progress isn’t being made, we’ll adapt your treatment as soon as possible to make sure you get the relief you need.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you don’t need a referral to see a chiropractor. Your doctor may recommend that you see a chiropractor to help manage or treat a condition, but you can seek chiropractic treatment on your own.

Chiropractors rely on adjustments of the spine and joints, while physiotherapy involves manual therapy such as joint, muscle, and fascia mobilization. Physiotherapy also has a heavy focus on targeted exercises to get at the root of your pain. Both use a variety of modalities to assist in treatment. In Canada, Chiropractic treatments are performed by a doctor of chiropractic who has a minimum of 7 years of post-secondary education, while physiotherapy is performed by a physiotherapist holding a Masters Degree in Physiotherapy.

Chiropractic treatments are performed by a doctor of chiropractic. Typically, your doctor will have an undergrad degree as well as at least 4 years of chiropractic training. Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive, so the risks are extremely low. You may experience some soreness after treatment, but many patients experience immediate relief.

Two treatment methods that your chiropractor may use are adjustments and spinal decompression. Adjustments are manual manipulations of the joints that can restore natural movement and function.
 Spinal decompression involves the use of a traction table or your chiropractor’s hands to gradually stretch the spine and relieve pressure.

Modalities are additional treatment tools that your chiropractor uses to help relieve pain, increase circulation, reduce swelling, and improve healing. Some modalities we might incorporate into your treatment include:

  • Shockwave therapy sends low energy waves through your skin to help with pain relief and healing.
  • Therapeutic ultrasound sends high-frequency sound waves to the soft tissue to increase circulation and reduce pain.
  • Dry needling, also known as Intramuscular stimulation (IMS) is a needle technique to relax tight muscles and relieve pain.
  • Interferential current is a type of nerve stimulation that helps decrease pain and muscle spasms while improving blood flow.
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) uses electrodes to provide a low-voltage electrical current, which helps provide pain relief.
  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) uses an electrical current that causes muscles to contract, increasing muscle function and promoting blood flow.
  • Cupping is a treatment technique that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction, which can help increase blood flow.
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue massage (IASTM) is a specialized type of massage that involves using plastic or metal tools to massage soft tissue, helping improve movement.
