Chiropractic Care

Restore the mobility to your joints and muscles, enhance your overall function and decrease your pain levels with chiropractic at Dynamic Physiotherapy and Wellness.

Our chiropractors use a range of different tools to assist you:

Chiropractic adjustments. A fixated joint can begin moving again, thanks to a specific adjustment.

Soft tissue/myofascial release. Deep massage and muscle work can relieve spasms and soreness.

Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization. Also called Graston or Smart Tools, these can work out stubborn muscle issues.

Spinal decompression. If your neck pain, low back pain or shooting pains are caused by disc issues, decompression can relieve them.

Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS). Electric pads are applied to the area of spasm or pain, decreasing your symptoms.

The purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is to remove interference from your body’s nervous system. This system controls every function that you have. It has the potential to improve your quality of life when it is optimized. Chiropractic can help with:

  • Headahces
  • Jaw pain
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal pain
  • Overuse injuries (ie: tennis elbow, jumpers knee)
  • Nerve impingement (ie: carpel tunnel)
  • Sprain strain injuries

We want to improve your health in ways that you find comfortable. To accommodate your unique needs, we utilize a range of adjusting techniques. These include the following:

Diversified technique: adjustments are performed manually, as in with the chiropractor’s hands

Thompson technique: utilizes a specialized chiropractic table, so that a portion of the table can be elevated and “drops” during treatment

Activator technique: Utilizes a tool or instrument to manipulate tight areas, instead of the chiropractor’s hands.

It is not uncommon to be nervous about chiropractic adjustments, especially if it is your first time. People are nervous that it might hurt, or that the cracking noise is harmful. While it is true that in the moment, adjustments can sometimes be tender, the discomfort is not long lasting, and it is not true that adjustments are unsafe. However, there are always options in how you perform the adjustments, and during treatment you and the chiropractor will decide on something you are comfortable with.

You are in the driver’s seat when it comes to your care. If you want to stop receiving care once you are out of pain, that’s your choice. We do, however, recommend maintenance care so you can keep your body healthy for a lifetime.

If you are coming in for symptomatic care, we generally recommended 8-12 treatments, however this is an average and can depend on your individual case. If you are continuing with us for maintenance care, we generally recommend you to come in monthly for adjustments.

How soon can I expect results from chiropractic treatment?

The timeline for experiencing results from chiropractic treatment varies depending on the individual and their specific condition. While some individuals may feel immediate relief, others may require multiple sessions over a span of a few weeks to achieve the desired outcomes. We will work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan and discuss expectations.

Do I need a referral from a physician to see a chiropractor?

Will I receive a chiropractic adjustment during my initial visit?

The decision to provide a chiropractic adjustment during the first visit depends on your specific condition and the assessment conducted by the chiropractor. In some cases, treatment may commence immediately, while in others, further evaluation might be necessary before proceeding with an adjustment.

Will the chiropractor recommend exercises or self-care practices?

We often incorporate exercises, stretches, and lifestyle modifications as part of their treatment plans. These personalized recommendations can complement adjustments and contribute to improved overall health and well-being.
