Chiropractic.


Headache to foot pain, chiropractic can help.

Chiropractic is an evidence-informed, hands-on health care discipline. Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

One of the most common therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

For many conditions, such as low back pain, chiropractic care is the primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, a chiropractor will coordinate care with other health care professionals. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Common reasons to seek chiropractic care include back pain, neck pain, headache, whiplash, sprains and strains, repetitive strain injuries, work (WSIB) injuries, car accidents (MVA) , arthritis, and limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck or limbs.

Acupuncture.


Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body for the purpose of pain relief, though it can also be used for a wide range of other conditions.

Acupuncture is safe when done by an appropriately trained practitioner using clean needle technique and single-use needles.

Acupuncture produces the release of endorphins locally, causing pain relief, as well as exerting anti-inflammatory effects, mediated by the activation of the nervous system. Acupuncture causes decreased firing in the amygdala (centre of the brain for fear, anxiety, stress), promoting calmness and relaxation, as well as the hypothalamus (portion of the brain that links your brain to your endocrine system). Acupuncture also causes local release in adenosine, which is thought to help in acupuncture's pain relieving properties.

Acupuncture's pain relieving properties are helpful with the treatment and management of many muskuloskeletal conditions, including sprains, strains, arthritis, headaches, as well as chronic stress.

Our acupuncture services are provided by our chiropractors and naturopathic doctor.

Custom Foot Orthotics.


Custom foot orthotics support proper foot function and address many common foot problems.

Orthotics are inserts tailor made for your foot to support and align how the foot functions and to prevent, accommodate for, or address foot problems.

Orthotics are prescribed to accommodate various "wear and tear" foot conditions such as arch or heel pain (plantar fasciitis), forefoot pain (metatarsalgia), but can often be prescribed as part of care for conditions such as shin splints, knee pain, as well as assist in the care of low back pain, diabetic ulcers and foot and knee arthritis.

The process of obtaining a pair of orthotics usually includes seeing your family doctor for a diagnosis of your problem, obtaining from your doctor a prescription noting the diagnosis, and booking an appointment at our clinic.

Please remember foot orthotics are one part of a treatment program and do not replace other forms of therapy, nor do they replace the need for proper fitting, supportive footwear.

Registered Massage Therapy.


Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including, muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage Therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.

Massage techniques are commonly applied using hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or a device. The purpose of massage is as treatment for stress or pain, as well as to promote and restore proper body motion. Massage methods may include deep tissue massage, myofascial release and trigger point therapy. Light massage is also used in pain management and palliative care.

Studies show massage therapy "reduced state anxiety, blood pressure, and heart rate, as well as reduced assessment of pain", and found improvements in anxiety and depression similar to effects of psychotherapy.

Naturopathic.


Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession built on a patient-centred approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that support the body’s natural ability to heal and help the patient achieve sustainable health and wellness.

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) focus on naturally occurring substances, minimally invasive methods, and the promotion of natural healing. They also emphasize illness prevention and a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Naturopathic Doctors focus not only on the symptoms but also the underlying conditions causing the symptoms. Naturopathic Doctors treat the root causes of disease and address preventable risk factors, using a wide range of science-and evidence-based, natural and conventional therapies.
