We welcome you to our office to help relieve your pain, restore your movement and provide options for long term wellness.

From the young to the young at heart, new patients are welcome. We use a number of adjusting techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary techniques we use are:

  • Diversified manual technique
  • Leander Flexion Distraction technique
  • Thompson Drop technique
  • IQ Impulse instrument adjusting technique
  • Myofascial Release & Soft tissue techniques
  • Kinesiology taping techniques (RockTape)

Treatment by Chiropractors

Impulse Adjusting Technique

Impulse IQ Instrument Adjusting Technique

Chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions and associated neurological system and will recommend a course of treatment to help relieve pain and improve function without surgery or pharmaceuticals, such as manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, exercise, education, modalities (i.e. kinesiology tape) and rehabilitation. Chiropractors are also trained to provide nutritional counselling, as well as recommend injury prevention strategies.

Specific training in spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) allows chiropractors to provide adjustments using highly-skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function. (This motion can be accompanied by an audible pop. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape from the joint capsule causing the popping noise, similar to cracking your knuckles.)
