What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors are leaders in their scientifically based field of health care, which restores and maintains health and wellness of the entire body using an array of individually tailored techniques and methods, including Active Release Techniques (ART), Medical Acupuncture, Functional Movement Screens (FMS), Biomechanical Analysis, Graston Techniques and electroacupuncture. To formulate a diagnosis, chiropractors take a detailed patient history, as well as physically examining the patient, this information enables the chiropractor to develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan. Chiropractors can also recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, as well as providing nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
When should I see a Chiropractor?
Eight out of ten Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their lives. For many people the pain can keep them away from work, school or even their day-to-day activities. If pain causes interruptions and restrictions in the activities of your daily life you should consult a chiropractor.
What kind of education does a Chiropractor have?
A Doctor of Chiropractic has spent four years at an accredited chiropractic institution after completing at least three years in a university undergraduate program. Chiropractic students receive more than 4,200 hours of specialized clinical training, and are one of only five classes of health care professional in Ontario that are permitted to use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.
