Chiropractor in NW Calgary

 

What is Chiropractic?

Doctors of Chiropractic assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent musculoskeletal (bones, muscles, tendons, joints and cartilage) conditions and disorders. A Chiropractor is specially trained to treat these conditions and the effect they have on the nervous system. 

 

The most common form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment.  A adjustment is a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion. Chiropractors will also sometimes incoporate other treatment methods such as soft-tissue manipulation, instrument assisted techniques and joint mobilizations.

 

A chiropractor may refer patients for x-rays or ultrasounds to assist in forming an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.  Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs nor do they perform surgery, but they may make a referral to other medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.

 

Chiropractors receive very thorough, well rounded health education and training and may also counsel patients regarding nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
