Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems and how these disorders affect general health. Doctors of Chiropractic use a conservative, hands-on approach to restore and enhance the health of patients. In addition to broad diagnostic skills, chiropractors are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises and provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling.
Chiropractic joint adjustments improves the body's healing times of injuries to joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerve entrapments.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue manipulation is an important treatment to most musculoskeletal conditions to promote healing of injured and dysfunctional muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and joint capsules. The therapy results in an optimal environment for metabolic cell regeneration and postural re-balance.
Exercise prescription is often a vital component of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. Research and clinical experience are leading doctors, therapists, and trainers down a slightly different path than conventional physical therapy.
