Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to headaches, back pain, neck pain, shoulder/elbow and knee pain.
Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Some effective adjuncts to chiropractic treatment are Active Release Technique® and Medical Acupuncture.
Chiropractic Care for Neck and Shoulders
Acute and chronic neck pain is usually a result of misalignments in your spine. When the spine is correctly lined up, all the nerves that flow from between the discs in the spine to the rest of the body are adequately protected. This proper alignment ensures there’s no pain. Neck and shoulder pain can be caused by physical activities like carrying something heavy the wrong way or sleeping on the wrong mattress. Poor posture like slouching at your computer the whole day can also contribute to serious neck and shoulder pain.
Precise spinal adjustments can help restore the correct alignment of the vertebrae releasing the pinched nerves and alleviating pain. We can help with all these causes of neck and shoulder pain by offering chiropractic care. We will perform a complete exam and review your medical history to better understand the reasons for your pain and design a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that promotes healing and pain relief.
Chiropractic Care for Mid back pain and Low back pain
Back pain can affect adults of all ages. It’s a debilitating condition that limits the person’s ability to perform everyday tasks and engage in physical activities. At our clinic, we can help you manage your back pain and restore your quality of life naturally with chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatments can help you avoid invasive, surgical procedures and long-term use of pain medication by seeking non-drug therapies.
Back pain can come in many forms. For some, it may manifest as a sharp pain in the back area that doesn’t radiate to the leg. Others experience cramps and muscle spasms or soreness at the back. Severe back pain can make it difficult to stand, walk, or sit. We’ve met clients who wait for the pain to go away on its own only for it to intensify over time and become unbearable. We’ll conduct a thorough examination of your neck and entire spine and develop a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan that helps alleviate the painful symptoms of your condition.
Chiropractic Care for Chronic Pain (Pain Management Clinic for Injuries)
Chronic pain can be alleviated with safe, natural, and effective chiropractic care. At our clinic, we go beyond spinal chiropractic adjustments to help clients suffering from chronic pain enjoy an active life again. We educate our patients on different lifestyle adjustments such as relaxation techniques, posture changes, stress management, and other lifestyle modifications that can help alleviate chronic pain.
Whether you’re suffering from a herniated disc, severe lower back pain, or neck and shoulder pain, we will suggest non-invasive treatment options that ensure you don’t rely on drugs for long-term treatment to reduce pain. We usually recommend several treatments to fully alleviate pain especially for conditions such as herniated discs. Treatment begins with an initial examination after which our chiropractor will diagnose the issue and recommend the right exercises and chiropractic adjustments to decrease pain. We will take time to listen to your needs and concerns then provide the best solution to find pain relief and achieve wellness.
Chiropractic Care for Herniated Disc
A herniated disc is a condition that occurs when there’s a problem with one of the discs that sit between the vertebrae which stack together to make up the spine. Each spinal disc is made up of a soft, jellylike centre and a tougher, rubbery exterior called an annulus. A herniated disc sometimes called a ruptured, slipped or bulging disc occurs when one disc protrudes outside this rubbery exterior (annulus). This bulging disc can press on a nerve in the spinal column and result in excruciating pain and loss of a range of motions.
We’ve met many clients with a herniated disc going through pain and serious mobility issues. We offer chiropractic care to treat this debilitating spine condition. Common symptoms of a herniated disc include back and neck pain, leg pain, arm pain, and stiffness. This condition often occurs due to age, physical trauma, performing repetitive movements, sports activities, lifting heavy objects improperly, or unhealthy habits like smoking and drinking.
Chiropractic Care for Sciatica
Many of our clients who’ve come to us with sciatica symptoms experience pain in different intensities when standing, walking, or sitting. The pain usually starts on one buttock and radiates down the leg. Sometimes it’s a tingling or burning sensation in the nerves on the leg. Sciatica is not a condition. It is a symptom that occurs due to a pinched sciatic nerve.
We can treat sciatica in patients experiencing all kinds of pain and in different forms. Our specialists come with years of experience in offering safe, effective, and natural chiropractic care for sciatica in Pickering. This symptom is quite common among those suffering from herniated or bulging discs because they compress the sciatic nerves. This pain often travels to the lower back, hips, and buttocks making it uncomfortable to go on with day to day activities. Our goal is to help you alleviate this pain and restore your quality of life.
Chiropractic Care for Sports injuries: Shoulder injuries, elbow injuries, knee injuries
We’ve helped numerous athletes of all ages to get pain relief after participating in various sports activities that result in severe back and/or neck pain as well as injuries. Participating in sports has its benefits but it still exposes the individual to issues such as strains, sprains, and muscle/joint stress. We always encourage our clients to engage in sports and keep in mind their body’s abilities to avoid injuries. If you are suffering from injuries which you sustained after doing a physical activity like hiking, swimming, or running, we come equipped with the techniques needed to handle them in a safe and natural way.
Common symptoms of sports injuries such as swelling, burning, headaches, muscle pains, inflammation, and muscle spasms can be alleviated with proper chiropractic care. We’ve seen clients who suffer from whiplash after participating in contact sports and offered suitable diagnosis and treatment using effective chiropractic adjustments. When you reach out to us, rest assured that you’ll be on the road to a happy and pain-free life once again.
