Chiropractic care is a hands-on, non-invasive healthcare practice that concentrates on the musculoskeletal system. A chiropractor’s approach is to diagnose, treat and prevent disorders related to the joints, pelvis and spine, as well as the central nervous system. In Ontario alone, some 2 million people rely on a chiropractor to help them live happy, active and healthy lives.
Chiropractic doctors use a combination of therapies, all of which are dependent on the needs of each patient. After taking the patient’s medical history into account and then making a diagnosis, the chiropractor can formulate and implement an effective management plan, recommend exercise, and apply other non-invasive treatments, as well as providing lifestyle, dietary and nutritional counselling.
Chiropractic care is frequently the go-to treatment for many conditions – just one example being lower back pain. Where other medical conditions exist, a chiropractor may support or complement conventional treatment by addressing the musculoskeletal elements of a patient’s recovery.
Chiropractic care is also used for symptomatic relief for people with a chronic condition. By treating musculoskeletal disorders related to the condition, the overall wellbeing of a patient can be significantly enhanced. Common issues addressed by a chiropractor include:
- Back and neck pain
- Sprains & strains
- Sports injuries
- RSI (repetitive stress injury)
- Limited range of motion
