YORK MED PHYSIO | Chiropractic
Chiropractors are one of the primary care professions in Ontario. It is a regulated health profession accepted by the statute in all Canadian provinces. It is widely recognized as one of the safest, evidence-informed, hands-on, drug-free, non-invasive therapies available to treat pain in the musculoskeletal system. A Doctor of Chiropractic spends four years at an accredited chiropractic college in addition to at least three years of an undergraduate university program and receives more than 4,200 hours of specialized clinical training. Their studies include anatomy, pathology, biomechanics, radiology, chiropractic principles, diagnosis and adjustment techniques.
During the visit, the Chiropractor will take a detailed history and perform a comprehensive physical examination before establishing a diagnosis. Then, a treatment plan is created based on the individual. Chiropractors mainly use their hands to assess, treat and provide preventative care. The most common therapy a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT). Specific training in SMT allows chiropractors to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.
A Chiropractor can also recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractic care can help improve movement, function, flexibility, posture and pain. It can also help prevent injuries and enhance performance. Chiropractors work complementarily with other healthcare professionals to build a strong network of resources to benefit the individual.
Chiropractic adjustments involve manipulations of the skeletal system. Adjustments are an effective way to help improve the range of motion across joints of the spine and the extremities while positively affecting the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Our Chiropractor uses a diversified style of chiropractic adjustments which will be used to correct any joint restrictions identified during the initial examination.
