What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline specializing in diagnosing, treating, and preventing musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders and conditions. Chiropractors are licensed healthcare providers who have received extensive training in manual therapy to treat the spine, joints, muscles and nerves. The term "chiropractic" is derived from the Greek word for "handwork”.
Manual therapy, along with therapeutic exercises, pain management and patient education, have been used in healthcare for many centuries; they’re among the main foundations of chiropractic medicine.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Yes! Chiropractic care is one of the world's most popular holistic and natural therapies. Chiropractors use a natural, hands-on, evidence-based approach to correct body and joint dysfunction. Unlike drugs and surgery (which seek to mask symptoms or alter the body), chiropractic care seeks to restore balance by addressing the underlying cause of your symptoms. It is best to discuss your medical history with your chiropractor when determining that chiropractic care is right for you.
There are numerous reasons for seeking chiropractic care. Many people seek chiropractic care for pain relief following an injury sustained at work, car accident, sports, or even in basic everyday activities such as gardening. Others seek chiropractic care to alleviate the daily stresses of painful joints plus spinal or headache problems. Even if you don’t have any painful symptoms, chiropractic care can help you maintain a healthy spine and joint function and prevent future episodes of back and joint pain.
When should I see a chiropractor?
No. Chiropractors are licensed primary care providers in all provinces across Canada. Patients will be able to consult with you directly as a result of this. Furthermore, chiropractors frequently collaborate with medical doctors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and naturopaths, many of whom refer their patients to chiropractors when they believe chiropractic treatment will help alleviate painful conditions. Similarly, chiropractors frequently refer patients to other providers as needed. We often involve your physician in your care and keep them up to date on your chiropractic treatment and overall progress (with your permission).
Is a referral required?
Your first visit to your chiropractor will include an evaluation of your medical history and physical condition. This visit is typically longer than a treatment visit, and you should plan on being in the office for 45-60 minutes.
Our doctors would like to hear from you. Many problems can be diagnosed by discussing a thorough history and listening to your story. Make sure to inform your chiropractor about any previous medical conditions, as well as your current symptoms so that they can determine the root cause of your symptoms.
Examination in depth
In addition to understanding your health history, it is critical to evaluate your body's current physical state using a thorough and focused physical exam which will aid in the diagnosis of the underlying cause of your problem. This exam may include range-of-motion tests, postural assessments, gait assessments, neurological exams, orthopedic tests and other procedures.
Following your thorough examination, your chiropractor will review your findings and explain what has been determined to be the underlying cause of your symptoms. This is also a good time to ask your chiropractor any questions and express any concerns you may have. Our chiropractors will recommend a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. All of us at Unity Spine and Health truly believe we are your partners in care; as such, we will always seek your permission before treating you.
You can expect treatment if it is deemed appropriate and safe in your specific case. Based on your personalized treatment plan, these may include manual therapy, home exercises and advice.
