Chiropractic care is a patient-centred, non-invasive, hands-on, regulated health care profession focused on your spine, muscles, joints and nervous system.
Chiropractors use the best available evidence and clinical expertise to diagnose issues that affect your body’s movement. They treat them without medication or surgery and prevent them from returning. Chiropractic care can also promote health and improve your quality of life, as well as alleviate pain.
Our Chiropractors utilize a variety of evidence based techniques which are safe, comfortable and effective.
Your treatment will begin with a comprehensive examination aimed at detecting the source of your pain.
Ongoing treatments will aim to resolve that pain by improving joint mobility and stability, as well as treating muscle imbalances and any chronic postural alterations.
