Natural Treatment of Common Injuries Through Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor treats muscle pain, joint pain, back pain – these are among the most cited reasons for exploring chiropractic treatment, and rightly so, as chiropractic care is a potent method for effective pain relief and musculoskeletal health. The term chiropractic is Greek for “done by hand”, and indeed, manual adjustments of the spine and joints are central to chiropractic therapy. Chiropractic treatments have successfully healed sports and work-related injuries, automobile accident injuries, arthritis-related pains, strains, and pain of the muscles, joints, shoulders, back and neck. Considering the sensitivity of our body parts, it is important to seek fully certified chiropractic professionals.

At Bovaird Health Clinic in Brampton, our chiropractors are fully qualified, with years of experience and depth of knowledge, all geared towards providing the most effective and comfortable treatment for you. A complete, comprehensive assessment first determines whether chiropractic therapy is right for you, and is followed by a detailed, specific treatment plan tailored to your unique needs (manual spinal adjustments, trigger point therapy, ice pack/cyrotherapy, etc).

Treatments

Our chiropractors provide a multitude of effective, non-invasive and safe treatments that are applicable to many musculo-skeletal conditions. These treatments focus on affecting joints, their surrounding capsules, ligaments, muscles, their tendons, fascia and nerves. In addition to performing treatments our chiropractors will also provide specific exercises to improve flexibility, strength, endurance and co-ordination.

1. Chiropractic Adjustment:

Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during four intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractor typically uses his/her hands to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function.

2. Muscle Release Technique

Muscle release technique is a soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.

3. Rehabilitative exercise

Rehabilitative exercises follow a very specific course often starting by restoring the normal activity of that affected muscle, balancing joint stresses and progressively improving the coordination of a larger movement.

These exercises can include:

• specific muscle strengthening
• specific muscle stretching
• developing body awareness (proprioceptive exercises)
• balancing on unstable surfaces
• coordination drills
• Injury prevention techniques
