What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a regulated health care profession in Canada focused on assessing, diagnosing and treating concerns and issues arising from the muscles, bones, joints and the nervous system. Chiropractors utilize a hands-on, non-invasive and drug-free approach to care, while often incorporating exercise, rehab, modalities and education into their treatments.
What to expect
Your first visit begins with an initial assessment, a conversation and physical examination that allows your chiropractor to understand your case, address your goals and any concerns or questions you may have.
