What is Chiropractic care?

A hands-on, non-invasive, and drug-free practice that safely and effectively helps relieve pain and improve the body’s overall function; uses various treatments depending on your needs, from manual ‘hands-on’ adjustment techniques to soft tissue therapy.

What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors help ease Canadians’ pain, enabling them to live the active, pain-free lives they want. Chiropractors treat neck pain, back pain, arthritis, certain types of headaches, injuries and more. They are spine, muscle and nervous system experts in assessing, diagnosing, treating and developing care plans to keep you moving and pain-free.

Chiropractors focus on your spine, muscle, and nervous system and treat the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and joints that you use every day. The spine, muscle, and nervous system supports your weight, keeps your body stable, protects your organs, and keeps you moving. It also connects directly to other vital systems in your body, which is why medical professionals, researchers, and the wider health community trust the spine care expertise of chiropractors to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions and injuries related to the spine, muscle, and nervous system. For optimal health and quality of life, a chiropractor should be part of every Canadian’s healthcare team.
