Chiropractic is a drug-free, non-invasive form of hands-on therapy that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on the spine. Chiropractic care and adjustments help relieve pain and restore normal function to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body – so you can enjoy everyday activities. The word chiropractic comes from ancient Greek and means, done by hand. Adjustment of the joints of the body has been used in health care for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
One of the most frequent treatments a chiropractor uses is manual manipulation of the vertebrae of your spine or other joints, which is called an ‘adjustment’. To perform an adjustment, your chiropractor will use their hands to apply controlled force to your joint and guide it through a range of motion. This action restores your joint’s natural movement and improves its function.
Gentle and Safe Hands-On Manual Therapy
Chiropractic care is a safe, natural, and effective form of care in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions. Canadian Chiropractors provide services to over 4.5 million Canadians every year, including women and men, seniors, athletes, and children.
