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.
