Chiropractic is a regulated, primary-contact health care profession, using a variety of non-invasive, hands-on manual therapies and modalities for treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
We offer two types of care:
1) Wellness care: Three types of stresses lead to tension in the body. These are physical stresses (eg. workplace demands), chemical stresses (eg. dietary choices), and emotional stresses (eg. family issues). Chiropractic care keeps muscles and spinal joints working properly. This decreases tension in the body, leading to improved function and health of all the body's systems. We will also help you to identify the stresses in your life that lead to the tension, and help motivate you to make changes to remove them.
2) Physical Therapy/Injury Rehab: Treatment plans provide recovery for conditions of the back and neck, as well as any upper or lower limb injuries. These can include WSIB injuries, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, or any other musculoskeletal crisis.
Massage therapy, when combined with rest, a proper diet, and daily exercise can improve a person's health and vitality. Massage therapy can help eliminate toxicity by eliciting relaxation and decreasing the tension that often hold biochemical bi-products.
Many tension spots that are frequently perceived as trigger points, a.k.a. knots, hold lactic acid and other toxins. Manual soft tissue therapy such as massage can help aide in the release of such toxins which are then carried through the circulatory system and the lymphatic system and eventually eliminated either by being broken down (when the liver and kidney are working efficiently) or through sweat.
Typical massage therapy sessions include different techniques which help the elimination process. Deep moist heat, such as a thermaphore (heating pad) helps to break down tough connective tissue which can bind muscle fibers that cause and perpetuate the tension. Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which is a lighter touch, creates a pumping effect which is followed through the lymph system. Deeper techniques help to penetrate deeper muscles. Lighter or faster techniques allow for a flushing effect on the loosened tissue. For a greater sense of warmth and comfort ask for a hot stone massage treatment.
Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive therapy used to promote natural healing and reduce pain. An ancient form of Chinese medicine, acupuncture has provided effective relief for centuries. Acupuncture treatment involves inserting a series of specially designed needles into the skin at specific points in the body. Acupuncture needles are very fine, flexible and slide smoothly through tissue so they do not cause bleeding or tissue damage. There is no drug injected through the needles; the presence of the needles themselves provides stimulation that achieves the beneficial effects of acupuncture treatment. Needles are typically left in place for 10 to 20 minutes.
Acupuncture has been know to provide effective, natural treatment for many conditions. If you are seeking acupuncture for a musculoskeletal complaint, (ie back pain, sciatica, headaches, TMJ disorders) you will be scheduled in with either the Osteopath or Chiropractor for your assessment and treatment. If you are experience any other health issues (asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, conception difficulties, childbirth/ lactation difficulties, digestion or sleep problems) you will be scheduled in with our Osteopath Doctor who will assess and discuss treatment options.
