What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is for more than back pain! It is a hands-on, non-invasive approach to healthcare that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. We focus on your body’s joints, muscles, and nerves to treat a variety of conditions. We can provide diagnoses, treatments, and preventative care for disorders related to the pelvis, nervous system, spine, and joints.
Chiropractors are regarded as experts in the musculoskeletal system and, in Ontario alone, 1.2 million people turn to this regulated health profession to lead active and healthy lives. Patient surveys reveal that chiropractic treatment improves the general wellbeing of the patient through treating the neuromusculoskeletal elements of chronic conditions.
Our Baden, Driftwood, and Kitchener-Waterloo chiropractic medicine can be combined with a unique chiropractic treatment called Active Release Technique®, or A.R.T. ® for short. We can treat the soft-tissue system of your body through massage-like movements to target muscles, tendons, fascia (connective tissue), ligaments, and even nerves. This means that we are able to diagnose and treat myofascial pain and inflammation which is caused by overused muscles, surgeries, joint dysfunctions, adhesions, and overall muscle tenderness. A.R.T. ® works to stretch out and soften your body’s tissues while also improving your range of motion. We have written a blog all about the A.R.T. ® service we offer so that you feel more prepared and comfortable for your treatments – check it out here.
