Chiropractic Services

With our therapies specifically targeted at your particular issue, you can trust that we’ll be able to handle even the most difficult cases. We offer Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (C.A.T.S.) for treatment of headaches, emotional irregularities and memory lapses that result from head injuries. We also offer iQ® impulse chiropractic adjusting, a treatment which, when applied to the dysfunctional area, thrusts at the ideal frequency to maximize motion and give relief to the patient for conditions as such back and neck pain, herniated discs, sports injuries, migraines, strains and sprains. 

CRANIAL ADJUSTING TURNER STYLE (C.A.T.S.)

Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (C.A.T.S.), a chiropractic technique first introduced in 1979 is a concept that uses the ability of the scull bones to move and bend, Head injuries can lead to headaches, emotional irregularities and even memory lapses. In some cases they can lead to temporary unconsciousness too. The cranial subluxations that are caused by a head injury, if not corrected, can lead to the persistence of symptoms and become chronic and in some cases even life threatening.

At Laser's Edge Chiropractic, we use Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (C.A.T.S.) to treat a variety of issues including:

  • Learning disabilities;
  • Head injuries;
  • Chronic headaches; and 
  • Post-concussion syndromes.

IQ® INSTRUMENT ADJUSTING

The Impulse iQ® adjusting instrument is a device which, when applied to the dysfunctional area, thrusts at the ideal frequency to maximize motion and give relief to the patient. This patented and FDA registered device was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function.

Here are the various ailments and injuries that can be treated.

  • Back/neck pain; 
  • Herniated discs;
  • Sports injuries;
  • Workplace injuries;
  • Strains and sprains;
  • Migraines;
  • Cervicogenic headaches;
  • Coccydynia (tailbone pain);
  • Degenerative disc disease;
  • Sciatica;
  • Whiplash;
  • Pain from repetitive tasks; and more.

INFANTILE COLIC

Colic in infants can be very difficult to handle for both baby and parents. Our chiropractor uses a very gentle Danish chiropractic method for relief of colic in infants. It has a very high success rate usually in one or two treatments, and he will teach you how to do it yourself at home, so that you and your baby can get some sleep.

Acupuncture

In addition to chiropractic treatments, Laser's Edge Chiropractic provides acupuncture services at our Scarborough location where we offer needle and laser acupuncture and low intensity laser therapy for treatment of your pain and injuries. 

The first question patients often ask about acupuncture is “does it hurt?” Even though acupuncture involves the slight insertion of sterile needles into the skin, it is mostly painless. At most, you may occasionally feel a small sting. Acupuncture needles are like miniature batteries inserted into the connective tissue beneath the skin, this connective tissue is electro conductive and that’s how acupuncture works, so you need at least two needles to have the electro conductive set.

The majority of patients find acupuncture to be a very relaxing experience that leads to faster healing, decrease in pain and better sleep after a treatment. When administered by the qualified and licensed professionals at Laser’s Edge Chiropractic, who have been doing this for over 35 years, acupuncture has only beneficial side effects. 

Acupuncture not only helps treat neuromuscular issues but also provides many other benefits such as:

  • Pain relief;
  • Improved digestion;
  • Improved sleep;
  • Relaxation; and
  • Stress relief.

Low Intensity Laser Therapy

At Laser’s Edge Chiropractic, we offer the pain management option of Low Intensity Laser Therapy at our Scarborough location. If you have unresolved pain and haven’t responded to other therapies, consider this proven option. You may experience pain relief in a single appointment! 

Lasers are intense beams of light that painlessly penetrate your tissues up to a depth of 4 inches. These certain frequencies of light actually speed up the healing process and are effective in treating:

  • Persistent wounds;
  • Inflammation reduction;
  • Chronic pain;
  • Cell regeneration; and
  • Scar tissue reduction.

Low Intensity Laser Therapy may be the answer and bring you the relief that will get you back to an active lifestyle.

Chiropractic for Dogs

At Laser's Edge Chiropractic, our VSMT certified chiropractors also offer a hands-on, non-surgical, drug-free approach when it comes to effective correction of bone, joint, disc and soft-tissue disorders for dogs.

Dogs are one of the most active animals, love to jump around and may injure themselves. Muscle spasm, rock back, poor fitting collars, unusual walking, limping can be a few indications that your dog needs chiropractic care. Do not ignore your dog’s asymmetrical posture, change in ability to climb stairs or jump. Contact Laser’s Edge Chiropractic to heal your dog in a natural way.
