What is Chiropractic Care? 

One of the largest primary care professions in Ontario, chiropractic care 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.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments to address the specific needs of the individual patient. After a diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan, recommend therapeutic exercises, non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.

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. Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief and improve the general well-being for patients living with chronic conditions.

Some reasons to seek chiropractic care are:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Whiplash
  • Strains and sprains
  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck or limbs
  • General health and well-being.

Chiropractic care is a regulated health profession, recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces and American states. Almost 2 million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy, active lives.
