What is Chiropractic Therapy?
One of the largest primary care professions in Ontario, chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.
For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
At Team Theraputix, our Chiropractor uses a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing the patient, our chiropractor will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.
Why Choose Chiropractic for your Back Pain?
Because Chiropractic Care is Rated #1!
Recently, Consumer Reports surveyed 14,000 of their readers to find out what had effectively resolved their back pain. The readers that were surveyed had previously suffered from back pain for over a year and had not undergone back surgery prior to the study. According to Consumer Reports, “more than half the respondents reported that the pain had severely limited their daily routine for a week or longer and 88% reported that it recurred throughout the year.”
The survey revealed that chiropractors rated highest on patient satisfaction for the treatments received for their back pain.
How Does it Help?
Most often, people initially go to chiropractors hoping to find relief from back pain. However, chiropractors treat a broad range of complaints, from back and neck pain to headaches, arthritis and more. Chiropractic differs from many other healthcare disciplines by shifting the focus from the superficial symptoms to their underlying cause. Moreover, people don’t need to have a specific complaint to benefit from a visit. Chiropractors also focus on on-going preventive and wellness care. Chiropractic care is effective for people of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
