One of the largest primary-contact healthcare professions in North America, chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the neuro-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, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient.
Chiropractic is a regulated health profession, recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces.
For many conditions, such as neck and 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 neuro-musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the neuro-musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.
