Chiropractic care

What comprises a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree?
Chiropractors are regulated, primary health care practitioners who have undergone over 4500 hours of academic and clinical education at a nationally accredited chiropractic college, after having completed at least 3 years of an undergraduate, university education.

How do Chiropractors treat?
Chiropractic takes a manual approach to health care through the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and subsequent prevention of conditions relating to the neurological, muscular and skeletal systems of the body.

What do Chiropractors treat?
Chiropractors can successfully treat conditions that range from chronic postural dysfunctions and repetitive strain injuries, to acute joint irritations, sprains and strains. The majority of conditions relating to the musculoskeletal system can be positively managed to some degree via chiropractic care.

Why is there such a difference between the treatment styles and philosophies of individual Chiropractors?
There are many techniques available for chiropractors to utilize, many of which are learned through seminars separate from Chiropractic College. These techniques range from those intended to treat the soft tissues of the body such as ART©, Graston® and Vibration Therapy, to those that focus on the joints of the spine and extremities such as the McKenzie Method and Activator. Every chiropractor will practice somewhat differently based on their preferred techniques.
