About Chiropractic

With over 6,000 practicing chiropractors, chiropractic is one of the largest primary health care professions in Canada. It is a regulated health profession and, in fact, Canadian chiropractors are amongst the best educated in the world.

Every year, over 30 million treatments are provided Canada-wide and more than 4.5 million Canadians seek the help of a chiropractor for relief from muscle, joint and spinal pain conditions.

Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive approach to health care. Chiropractors practice a drug-free, manual approach which includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints and their effect on the nervous system. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercises, to utilize other non-invasive therapies and to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Why Chiropractic Treatment

The primary goal of chiropractic care is to decrease pain and restore function. Adjustments are the most common form of treatment utilized by chiropractors; this is also known as spinal manipulative therapy. Adjustments are non-invasive manual procedures that utilize the chiropractors' highly refined skills developed through eight years of intensive education.

The vast majority of patients who seek chiropractic care do so for the following conditions:

  • Low back pain and sciatica
  • Neck pain and whiplash
  • Headaches, including migraines and tension headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder or hip bursitis
  • Tennis elbow or golfer's elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
