Chiropractic Rehabilitation

Chiropractic treatment is based on the theory that a person's health is generally determined by the condition of the nervous system and how it relates to the spine and the muscular system.

Isn't Chiropractic only about Back Pain?

Contrary to common belief that chiropractors are only able to aid with neck and back pain, we are able to treat the whole body, in specific the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. We can treat patients who have problems regarding headaches, tendonitis, sprains, strains, stroke and other diseases.

Do Chiropractors only Adjust?

Chiropractic treatment may also involve gentle movement of the head, shoulders, and hips. Heat, ice, corsets, ultrasound, laser therapy, strength and conditioning exercises, biofeedback, acupuncture, and relaxation therapy can be used to supplement manipulation.

Chiropractic Techniques

Chiropractor actually have the same number of hours in basic and clinical science as family doctors. The scope of practice for manual practitioners overlap, a chiropractor will be able to do a variety of techniques similar to other practitioners, as well as utilize manual therapy techniques to heighten the effects the patient receives.

Doctors of Chiropractic can apply pressure to and move the vertebrae slightly beyond their normal range of motion. Treatment may also involve gentle movement of the head, shoulders, and hips. Heat, ice, corsets, ultrasound, strength and conditioning exercises, biofeedback, and relaxation therapy can be used to supplement manipulation treatments.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Doctors of chiropractic, called ‘chiropractors’ are spine, muscle, joint and nervous system experts. Every chiropractor receives at least six to seven years of post-secondary academic and clinical education. They are trained in how to evaluate, diagnose, recommend and deliver a treatment plan that manages issues within these systems, according to your preferences. A chiropractor’s education also includes courses in radiology, pain management, prescribed exercise and rehabilitation, among others.

Every chiropractor is uniquely qualified to evaluate your condition and identify what’s causing your pain. We invite you to visit our Mississauga Chiropractic clinic.

What conditions do Chiropractors treat?

Based on the best available evidence, combined with their clinical expertise, your chiropractor will then work with you to determine the best treatment to relieve your pain. They will also help prevent it from returning and restore your mobility.

Some of the conditions chiropractors treat include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Pain associated with arthritis
  • Work and sports injuries

Check with our Chiropractors to discover how a chiropractor may be able to help you. And it’s worth noting that in Ontario, you can visit a chiropractor without a referral from a doctor or other health care professional.

What is Manula Manipulation?

One of the most frequent treatments a chiropractor uses is manual manipulation of the vertebrae of your spine or other joints, which is called an ‘adjustment.’ To perform an adjustment, your chiropractor will use their hands to apply controlled force to your joint and guide it through a range of motion. This action restores your joint’s natural movement and improves its function.

When applied to your spine, this treatment is called spinal manipulation therapy (SMT). Manipulation is also used on other joints, such as those in your wrist, ankle or foot, as an effective treatment.

What happens after my first visit?

After a first appointment to assess your condition, your chiropractor will use their clinical expertise and the best available evidence to make a diagnosis and recommend treatment options for you.

Chiropractic care is the primary method of treatment for many medical conditions, such as low back pain. For other conditions, such as pain associated with arthritis, diabetes or osteoporosis, chiropractors and other health professionals recommend an interprofessional approach. So in these situations, your chiropractor will coordinate with other health care professionals in your circle of care to support your overall treatment. Working with this team, they will provide chiropractic care to relieve your spine, muscle or joint pain.

What options are there for Chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractors use various treatments, depending on their patient’s specific needs and preferences. Common treatments include:

  • Manual, ‘hands-on’ therapy
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Electronic modalities, such as therapeutic ultrasound and cold laser therapy
  • Customized, therapeutic exercise programs
  • Self-management tools and techniques (like positions for relief or coping strategies for pain)
  • Advice and education

What options are there for Chiropractic treatment?

You may want to visit a chiropractor at various times throughout your life. A chiropractor can alleviate long-term or sporadic pain, promote health and help you live your best life.

Whether we’re at home, work or out and about, daily living puts strain on our bodies. As a result, you may suffer from persistent headaches, migraines, back, neck or joint pain. You may also have this type of pain due to an injury, accident, illness or long-term condition.

Taking pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications may temporarily alleviate your symptoms but may not address the underlying cause. They may also create new health challenges. Consider visiting a chiropractor instead. Using primarily their hands, your chiropractor will treat these issues without medication or surgery and help prevent them from returning. But you don’t have to have an issue or be in persistent pain to visit a chiropractor. They can help you at many other times.
