CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Discover the benefits of Chiropractic care at INNOVA, from treating postural strains and headaches to chronic pain, sports injuries and more.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system. While many people think of chiropractors adjusting the bones in the back and neck, chiropractic care involves the entire body. Chiropractors are highly trained to diagnose and treat all areas of the body including joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons and connective tissue.

Chiropractors are also primary health care practitioners. Like your family doctor, you do not need a referral to see a chiropractor. Common reasons why people seek chiropractic care include treating sore muscles, stiff joints, and even headaches, jaw pain and foot pain. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective and natural therapeutic approach that is used to help millions of Canadians everyday recover from different types of pain including injuries sustained from sporting activities, accidents, pregnancy, posture related strains, normal day-to-day aches, and chronic pain issues like arthritis.

FAQ’s About Our Chiropractic Services

INNOVA Integrated Wellness :: Frequently Asked Questions

No, you do not need a referral to see a Chiropractor. Chiropractors, like your family doctor are primary health care providers who do not require a referral to be seen.

Chiropractic care is covered by many third party payers. These include employee benefit plans, extended health care, workers compensation boards, automobile insurance, the federal public service, RCMP, Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs Canada. In order to find out what your coverage for chiropractic care is, contact your benefits provider.

You first visit will begin with an interview also known as taking a history of the area of complaint. During history taking, your chiropractor will gather details about your pain syndrome as well as take notes about other significant past or present health conditions as well as the health history of your blood relatives. Taking a detailed health history helps to establish your current health status should anything change and also helps to guide the chiropractor to focus their exam of the area of complaint. A thorough history is important to proper diagnosis. After the history taking, your chiropractor will go through a focused physical exam of the area of complaint. The exam includes testing range of motion/mobility of joints, neurological testing such as assessing reflexes, and specific manual test called orthopedic test in order to diagnose your pain condition and provide effective treatment.

An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement applied to a joint usually manually that helps to restore movement and function of a joint that is restricted in movement. Adjustments are a safe and effective therapy and may be used in combination with other therapies such as soft tissue therapy, electrotherapy, prescription exercises and stretches to help many pain syndromes. Chiropractors are highly skilled and trained in adjustments and identifying who are good candidates for adjustments. Sometimes adjustments make loud ‘cracking’ sounds. These sounds are simply air bubbles that become compressed under pressure of the movement and makes that popping sound when the air escapes similarly like when you crack your knuckles.

Chiropractic care can help at any stage of dysfunction weather it is acute or chronic. Because chiropractic care helps to restore proper muscle and joint function it also plays a preventative role in many conditions. Depending on the level of interest in your present and future health you may choose to see a chiropractor for acute pain management such as treating a sprained ankle or sore back or be more focused on maintenance or preventative care to help you stay active, pain free and injury free so that you can continue to participate in competitive sports, recreational activities, work past retirement age with improved health and mobility. Whatever your needs and goals are we are here for you.

X-rays are not required to be taken routinely for every condition. Your chiropractor is highly trained to examine the area of complaint and come to a diagnosis using their manual tests they are trained in during their 4 years of study. However, if your chiropractor determines that they need more information or to rule out certain conditions, an X-ray in those circumstances may be warranted in order to provide the best care to you. X rays are diagnostic for certain conditions but not all. The manual test that are performed are also diagnostic for many muscle, joint, ligament and nerve conditions where an X-ray may not be useful.

Many patients report feeling relief/improvement after treatment. In some cases, you may feel a bit of soreness. In certain cases, you may feel worse before you feel better. This can be a normal part of healing. If you feel worsening of symptoms always discuss with your practitioner and your chiropractor can recommend pain management strategies that are appropriate for your condition.
