Chiropractors are primary-contact healthcare professionals who provide natural hands-on, non-invasive, manual therapies such as spinal manipulation and mobilization to relieve pain, improve mobility and posture. Chiropractic techniques may include manual diversified adjustments or instrument adjusting (Arthrostim, Activator Methods).
Cold Laser Therapy
Theralase’s dual wavelength super pulsing technology is able to penetrate up to 4 inches into tissue activating three cellular pathways to heal the cells.
Three cellular pathways:
1. ATP pathway – to accelerate healing (ATP is the basic food source of cells)
2. Nitric Oxide (NO) pathway – decreases inflammation
3. Sodium-Potassium pump pathway – reduces pain and regulates nerve signals
How Laser Therapy works
Laser light supplies energy into the body in the form of billions of photons. The cells of your body absorb the light energy and transform it into chemical energy (ATP) to initiate and accelerate healing. Laser therapy is an excellent therapeutic modality to reduce pain, reduce inflammation and improve and speed up tissue repair.
We use the Theralase Cold Laser Therapy System, which has been used by many professional sports teams such as the Toronto Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors, Toronto FC and the Montreal Canadians. Common conditions treated by laser therapy include arthritis, bursitis, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sciatica and migraines, sprains & strains, and skin wounds.
ART (Active Release Techniques)
Excellent for repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and muscle tension.
Family and Wellness Care
Wellness or preventative care adjustments will help to detect minor problems, maintain good spinal health and posture, and keep you moving well.
Patient-centred exercises are prescribed for specific conditions, injuries and for posture corrective care needs.
Custom-made orthotics are devices that are inserted into shoes to provide support, align and prevent foot abnormalities, and improve foot function. A full biomechanical exam and gait analysis is done prior to custom casting.
Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
We treat many soft tissue injuries following car accidents which include, whiplash, back pain, shoulder pain, sprains/strains, headaches, concussions, jaw pain, peripheral neuropathy (pinched nerves), disc herniations and more. Chiropractic care and rehabilitation programs are pre-approved by auto insurance plans. Medical referrals are not necessary to book your initial consultation and examination. We will complete all the necessary insurance forms and bill them directly so you can focus on your recovery.
Scoliosis Screening / Check-Ups
Regular spinal check-ups can be performed for children to evaluate for abnormal spinal curvatures and posture. Early detection, referral, and/or treatment can prevent future problems.
