About Chiropractic Care
One of the largest primary care professions in Ontario, chiropractic is an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on a patient's individual needs. For many conditions, such as low back pain, chiropractic care is a primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, a chiropractor will coordinate care with other health care professionals, such as your family medical doctor.
As primary care practitioners, chiropractors can communicate a diagnosis, develop and recommend a treatment plan, and suggest therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, among many other services. There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care, including low back, neck, shoulder, headache, knee, and hip pain!
