Chiropractic specializes in the treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal conditions (muscles,tendons,ligaments,nerves, and joints). The goal of chiropractic care is to attend to joints and muscles in order to relieve pain and stress on your body and its many systems, including the nervous system, circulatory system and immune system. It can also improve mobility and proprioception (the brain’s sense of the body’s parts in relation to one another). Most importantly, it can improve your quality of life.
Chiropractors hold at least 7 years of post-secondary education, with over 4500 hours of academic and clinical education in courses such as biochemistry, neurology, anatomy, biomechanics, microbiology, radiology, exercise physiology, and rehabilitation. This puts us at the forefront of healthcare providers that can help you with a non-invasive, drug-free treatment strategy for musculoskeletal injuries.
Chiropractic is effective as a non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical method to address all kinds of health issues including car accident and sports injuries, repetitive stress injuries, and issues such as digestive problems or chronic headaches. We understand that not one treatment works for each person, therefore we use a wide range of tools and modalities to enhance the body's ability to heal itself, such as adjusting,soft tissue manipulation and IASTM,athletic taping with kinesiotape,and functional and corrective exercises.It supports quick recovery for new injuries and improved function for chronic injuries.
The Difference Between Chiropractic,Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy
Chiropractors receive more training to properly diagnose and rule out neuromusculoskeletal conditions. This means that you will get a more in depth assessment and treatment plan in order to address your injury or aid in injury prevention. We work closely with and will refer out to massage therapists in order for the patient to receive more extensive soft tissue work, or physical therapists for more extensive rehab and exercise therapy. Co-treating with these other practitioners enables the patient to receive well rounded care from multiple angles.
