Chiropractic is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Ontario, a non-invasive hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the nerve, muscle and skeletal systems.

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

As a Board certified and registered Chiropractor, I use a combination of treatments, according to the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, I will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment or management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment.  Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other treatments by relieving the nerve, muscle and skeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide  relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the underlying elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.
