Chiropractic is a primary health care profession and like other health care professions is governed by provincially-legislated authorities. Chiropractic doctors use non-invasive, hands-on techniques to diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system, and most other joints in the body.
On your first visit to our office, a doctor will perform a physical examination and determines a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is established, the chiropractor will develop a treatment plan with the patient based on clinical experience, patient preference, and evidence. Your treatment plan may include spinal manipulative therapy, or manipulation of other joints, and therapeutic exercises. We can also provide advice on nutrition and lifestyle to help you reach your goals.
Many chiropractors, like the ones at All Systems, provide myofascial release therapy, acupuncture, instrument-assisted soft tissue, and rehabilitation exercises in their treatment plans.
A chiropractic adjustment refers to the manipulation of a vertebrae of the spine or a joint that has abnormal movement patterns.
