Chiropractic Adjustments
 

A chiropractic adjustment is a safe and effective form of treatment. It is a highly

skilled and specific force applied to a joint to promote a full range of motion. The

sudden stretch of the surrounding tissue can also release any adhesions or scar

tissue and promote proper biomechanical function of the area. Adjustments are

a very safe mode of treatment and patients often experience immediate relief

afterwards.

 
Active Release Techniques

 

Active Release Techniques (ART®) is a patented soft tissue treatment technique.

The goal is to remove any adhesions or scar tissue within or around your muscles,

ligaments, tendons, fascia and nerves. Scar tissue can form from acute trauma

such as pulls, tears, accidents and surgeries or from repetitive strain injuries. This

will negatively affect how the body works but often does not result in pain. This is

why treatment may be administered to muscles that the patient might not perceive

as sore, but may still be damaged or feel very tight due to poor body biomechanics.

 

Positive results can often be felt and seen after the very first treatment, however

we often recommend patients have multiple treatments to ensure all problems

have been resolved, thereby minimizing any chance of reoccurrence. ART® is

non-invasive with no severe side effects, and can be beneficial for anyone who has

soft tissue aches and pains. While it is common to be slightly sore after treatment,

and even on those rare occasions when slight bruising occurs, the benefits highly

outweigh the risks.

 

ART® can be useful to help quickly and permanently resolve common conditions

including, but not limited to:

  • Headaches and migraines

  • Neck pain

  • Back pain

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Shin splints

  • Shoulder pain

 

Acupuncture

 

Fine solid needles are inserted into anatomically defined sites based on the nature of the patient’s complaint. The needles can then be stimulated manually or with electricity to help regulate the nervous system. This process has an effect on the entire body including muscles, joint function, pain modulation and overall wellbeing.

 

Acupuncture produces many of its effects by stimulating nerve receptors in skin and muscle. Various substances are released that cause an increase of local blood flow that encourages tissue healing.

 

The mechanisms with which acupuncture works are as follows:

  • Helps to reduce pain locally where the needles are inserted and throughout the body by targeting healing to the area

  • Has a calming effect and increases wellbeing

  • Inactivates myofascial trigger points and helps restore proper muscle function

  • Improves joint function and promotes proper biomechanics of the body

  • Has positive effects on the brain and nervous system

  • The effects of acupuncture accumulate when repeated

 

Acupuncture is a method of treatment for many common conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, neck and back pain, sports injuries, sciatica and nerve entrapment syndromes, osteoarthritis, neuritis and facial pain, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis, tendonitis, postural conditions, ankle and foot injuries

  • Stress and under/overactive nervous system

 

Home Care

 

Every patient is given home care to help compliment the in-office treatments which are catered directly to your needs and abilities. This may consist of stretches, exercises or behaviour modifications to help speed healing and prevent future complications.
