Chiropractic

What is it?

Chiropractors are first-contact health practitioners who aim at an optimal neuromusculoskeletal health for their patients. By going through a complete physical examination, they can establish a precise diagnosis in their field of competency and establish an adapted health care plan for each patient. Even though they are mostly known for treating low back pain, neck pain, and headaches, their field of expertise allows them to treat conditions involving all peripheral articulations (e.g. shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles).

During treatment, chiropractors favour a natural and non-invasive approach in treating, correcting, and preventing neuromusculoskeletal conditions without the help of drugs or surgery.

In addition, chiropractors are trained to give the best advice in order to optimize well-being and to help prevent the onset of neuromusculoskeletal disorders.

 

Who do we treat?

Newborns and children: Childbirth can exert strong forces on the spine and peripheral articulations of a baby. It is the first great stress applied to the human body. After that, a child becomes active, which can result in numerous falls, causing biomechanical imbalance. A chiropractic exam of babies or children allows the detection of these imbalances on the nervous, muscular, or articular systems before they cause obvious discomforts or disabilities.

Athletes: During sports, the body is constantly under stress. On a high frequency, this stress may cause injuries from overuse or biomechanical imbalances predisposing to injuries. In addition, chiropractors can treat numerous traumatic injuries which can happen during sports.

Workers: During long days of work, many people feel discomfort or tensions. Numerous neuromusculoskeletal disorders can be caused by inadequate work posture, repetitive movements, or stress. During the examination, your chiropractor will try to find the cause of your problem and will give you advice in order to lower work-related stress.

Seniors: With aging, the human body’s structures can degenerate. In addition, the body’s capacity to recover decreases with age. Many seniors struggle with various chronic pains. Chiropractors can perform an examination of the condition in order to determine the indication of chiropractic care and to offer an adapted care plan aiming to decrease chronic pain.
