Doctors of Chiropractic are the spine, muscle, joint and nervous system, experts. They are trained in how to evaluate, diagnose, recommend and deliver a treatment plan that manages issues within these systems without prescribing medication. Chiropractic care can be used together with other medical or alternative treatments in order to achieve the best possible results. Non-intrusive, manual manipulations to the spine and joints are made to restore movement and function.
Therapies include a comprehensive 1st visit physical assessment of your area of complaint, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. Every treatment plan is uniquely designed and patient-centred followed by reoccurring follow-up adjustment and management plan review.
