What is Chiropractic?

The word “Chiropractic” comes from ancient Greek and means, “done by hand.”

Chiropractic is one of the largest primary health care professions in Canada with approximately 4.5 million Canadians visiting a chiropractor each year. Doctors of chiropractic are health professionals concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of muscle and joint injuries. Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Adjustments help relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body.

Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise, nutritional counseling, and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.

What is an adjustment?

An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustment loosens the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function. When a joint is adjusted, a gas bubble escapes causing the popping noise you may have heard about.

When should I see a chiropractor?

Eight out of ten Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their life, For many people, the pain can keep them away from work, school or even their day-to-day activities. If pain causes interruptions and restrictions in the activities of your daily life then you should consult a chiropractor.

What kind of education does a Chiropractor have?

A Doctor of Chiropractic has spent four years at an accredited chiropractic institution after they have completed a minimum of 3 years in a university undergraduate program. Chiropractic students receive more than 4,200 hours of specialized clinical training, and are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title Doctor, with its accompanying rights and obligations.

Why do people without pain, elect to see a chiropractor?

When a patient elects to pursue regular chiropractic care it is defined as Maintenance Care. Maintenance Care focuses on maintaining good mobility and joint function of the spine to help in the prevention of back pain and to promote spinal health.

Your spine houses your spinal cord. Your spinal cord is a bundle of wires containing millions of nerves. These nerves send messages to and from your brain to virtually every cell in your body, responsible for your breathing, digestion, heart beat, etc. If the bones of your spine move incorrectly, move out of position or get “stuck” the nerves can become irritated causing the signal from the nerve to become interrupted; like a short circuit.

Maintenance Care aims to keep spinal segments from getting “stuck,” preventing nerve irritation and promoting overall better health.


The activator method has grown to be the most widely used “low force” technique in chiropractic. Activator technique utilizes a small spring-loaded adjusting instrument to deliver a focused corrective impulse to the desired spinal segment to help restore proper motion. This technique is commonly used in patients who prefer a low-force correction without the traditional “hands-on” thrust.

Therapeutic Modalities

Interferential Current and Ultrasound are types of therapeutic modalities used at our clinic as an adjunct to treatment to help reduce pain, decrease inflammation, promote healing and restore function.
