Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and highly researched complementary form of health care. Chiropractors treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions using a large range of techniques. By performing a thorough history taking and physical examination, chiropractors aim to find and treat the source of the symptoms rather than focusing on the location of the pain alone. Chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints, and their effect on the nervous system.

One of the primary forms of chiropractic care is the adjustment. An adjustment is a non-invasive, manual procedure that is designed to restore motion to a restricted joint in the body. Our bodies are designed for movement and without it we will definitely experience poor health consequences. The body contains many joints; both in the spine as well as more peripheral joints such as the wrist and ankle. When these joints aren’t moving properly, it can cause pain, muscle tightness and muscle soreness. This can result in your body trying to compensate for the loss of motion in one area by creating extra movement elsewhere. When this happens in the spine, it can translate into irritated joints above or below the level that isn’t moving properly, or a postural shift of the shoulders or hips in order to compensate for muscle tightness which accompanies a fixed joint. In the extremities, it can greatly affect the individual’s ability to carry on their activities of daily living. The purpose of joint adjustment is to decrease pain, muscle tightness or spasm, and return the joint to its full range of motion.

Whether healing from an injury, training for competitive athletics, or anything in between, different massage techniques can help. Registered Massage Therapy uses hands-on manipulation to treat soft tissues (muscles, tendons, connective tissue, and ligaments) and joints to try to optimize health.

There are several different styles of massage therapy available including Swedish massage, joint mobilization, craniosacral therapy, lymphatic drainage, strain-counter-strain, muscle energy technique, visceral manipulation and more. Due to this diversity it can be used for physiological goals including rehabilitation and musculoskeletal pain reduction, or on a psychological level for stress relief.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy uses gentle manipulative techniques to restore proper alignment and function within all body tissues and structures. It is a holistic therapy (all parts and systems of the body being inter... Read More

It is a holistic therapy (all parts and systems of the body being inter-connected) which aims to diagnose and treat physical dysfunction by determining the root cause of pain and imbalance.
