Chiropractic Makes Sense

Chiropractic is the largest drug-free health care profession in the world. It focuses on spinal alignment and its effect on the nervous system. Your nervous system controls how you move, feel and think. Misalignments of your spine can cause pinched nerves and result in immediate discomfort or chronic pain.

Chiropractic doctors use specialized techniques (called “adjustments”) to help restore normal joint movement and nerve function, thereby alleviating pain and optimizing performance.

The Chiropractic Adjustment

An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement applied by hand to a joint of the body. Chiropractic treatments can be modified to accommodate your specific body type, condition and most importantly, your comfort level.

Each adjustment will be explained and performed only after your consent.

For over 100 years, Chiropractic has safely and successfully helped millions of people of all ages with:

  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Headaches/migraines

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is the assessment and treatment of the soft tissue and joints of the body. It involves a hands on approach in which a diverse system of strokes and techniques, ranging from light to deep pressure, are used to manipulate the tissues and joints. The aims of massage are the prevention and rehabilitation from physical dysfunction as well as relief from pain and stress.

How safe is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is considered to be one of the safest health care professions, despite what other people or the media might tell you. There is a rare risk of stroke associated with neck adjustments. However, the most recent study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal states that the risk is merely one in 5.85 million adjustments. That is less than your risk of getting struck by lightning or of dying while skiing.
Occasionally there is temporary muscle soreness after an adjustment – just like the first time you go to the gym. These minor side effects don’t even compare to the risks and side effects associated with its medical counterpart. In fact, M.D.s now categorize chiropractic in the highest rating: "Generally accepted, well-established and widely used."

The bottom line: Chiropractic is safe – for children, adults and seniors.

Are Chiropractors real doctors?

Chiropractic academic training is of equivalent standard to medical training. In fact, chiropractors have more classroom hours in anatomy and radiology. Chiropractic training generally requires a minimum of six years of university and chiropractic college study followed by an internship prior to entering practice. Upon graduation, a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree (D.C.) is awarded. Chiropractors must then pass several National Board exams as well as necessary state/provincial exams. The biggest difference between chiropractors and medical doctors is in their treatment approach. M.D.s are trained in the use of medicine and surgery. Chiropractors are trained in a more hands-on, physical approach to help correct joint misalignments and alleviate pain and discomfort related to pinched nerves. Chiropractic also emphasizes prevention and its relation to overall well-being.

Once you start, do you keep going forever?

This is entirely up to you. You only have to continue treatments as long as you want to continue to look, think and feel optimally healthy. Preventative chiropractic care is just like getting routine dental check-ups, exercising regularly, stretching, eating healthy and maintaining a positive state of mind. As long as you keep doing it, you get to keep enjoying the benefits.
Your joints go through everyday wear and tear during daily activities such as sleeping, sitting, walking, exercising and lifting. And just like tooth decay is well on its way before the first warning signs of pain, misalignments in your joints may have a significant impact on your health before you feel pain or discomfort.
At any age, regular chiropractic check-ups can help you do the things you love to do with greater ease and for a longer period of time.

 

What can I expect from my first massage?

Upon arriving for the initial massage, clients complete a health history form. The massage therapist then asks a series of questions based on pre-existing or current health conditions in order to determine client goals. Once treatment objectives are established, the massage therapist conducts an assessment to help determine possible causes of the discomfort. Based on the results of the assessment, a treatment plan is developed through consensus. The therapist then leaves the room. When clients are ready, the therapist re-enters and commences treatment. The massage therapist checks in periodically throughout the treatment to ensure client comfort. The only area of the body exposed is the part being treated. The rest of the body is covered by secure draping. Though it is advantageous for the therapist to have hand-to-skin contact, if clients wish, they can remain dressed or partially dressed.

Is Massage Therapy for relaxation purposes only?

No, massage therapy has many purposes. Clients may desire a relaxation focused treatment to help to decrease stress and to increase feelings of wellness, or they may require a more specific treatment to address identified complaints or conditions. Massage therapy can also aid in rehabilitation from injury.

Once clients regain health, massage can be used to maintain optimal wellness. In the end, clients choose the direction they want their therapy to take.

What is the difference between general Swedish Massage and Trigger Point Therapy?

General Swedish Massage treats soft tissue to bring about relaxation, rehabilitation and maintenance. A range of techniques are employed with varying degrees of pressure. If clients request a relaxation massage, Swedish massage techniques are primarily used.

Trigger point therapy, on the other hand, uses therapeutic techniques to address the phenomenon of trigger points. A trigger point is an irritable knot in a muscle that can be painful. Pain is referred along characteristic patterns. As a result, the location of the pain may not necessarily be its origin. Treatment of trigger points can take the form of compressing the knot or of deep muscle stripping techniques followed by stretching. This form of therapy can illicit tenderness so it is important for the therapist to remain in close communication with the client to ensure their comfort throughout the process.
