Chiropractic treatments in North York, by a licensed chiropractor offer a drug-free, natural approach to managing pain, as well as improving the overall health and well-being of patients. Treatments are well-suited for both chronic pain and short-term pain caused from accidents and injuries. Chiropractors focus on the nervous system and proper alignment of the spine. By addressing these two areas of the body, the body has the ability to naturally heal itself, in most cases, under the proper conditions. A chiropractorâ€™s purpose is to help facilitate the bodyâ€™s ability to heal itself without the use of drugs.
Chiropractic treatments can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and pain, including:
- Lower, Middle, and Upper Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Neck Pain
- Hip Pain
- Tension and Stress Relief
- Joint and Extremity Pain
- Improving Organ Function
- High Blood Pressure
- Ear Infections
- Scoliosis and Other Spinal Conditions
When there are blockages and pressure on nerves, it prevents the nerves from communicating and sending signals to the brain and the other systems and organs within the body. As a result, the body is not able to heal what ails it, naturally, without drugs. By using a hands-on approach and manipulation, a chiropractor realigns the spine and restores proper nervous system functions.
Another benefit of chiropractic treatments is to help patients remain healthy and avoid future injuries. General health and well-being treatments combine several aspects of chiropractic care and other methods, such as nutrition education, strength training, and exercise. Many chiropractors complete nutritional, strength, and exercise related educational and development courses as part of their requirements when earning a chiropractic degree. Some of these courses are advanced, PHD level coursework.
To further help patients, chiropractic treatments are able to be combined with other forms of drug-free services, like massage therapy and physiotherapy in North York. Massage therapy helps improve blood flow to affected areas of the body, work out tension and stress, and alleviates pain and discomfort. Massage therapy further stimulates the bodyâ€™s natural healing response when used with chiropractic care.
Physiotherapy (a.k.a. physical therapy) is used to help restore functioning to affected extremities and limbs, while improving mobility and reducing pain. Physiotherapy also helps to restore, maintain, and improve patientsâ€™ overall health and fitness. Treatments typically involve exercises designed to strengthen the body, improve range of motion, restore coordination and balance, muscle response, and posture. Combined with chiropractic care, both treatments further improve a personâ€™s overall well-being, with a reduction in pain and discomfort, while decreasing the risks of future injuries.
Keep in mind treatments are customized to fit the needs of each patient, depending upon their medical diagnosis, overall health and fitness level, age, and other related medical conditions. Prior to starting any treatment program, the chiropractor and physiotherapist will review your medical history and conduct several tests to develop the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
