Chiropractic Care

As part of the primary health-care system in Ontario, Chiropractors use a non-invasive, hands-on approach to diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders related to the musculoskeletal and nervous system.

It is important to know that chiropractors address not only the neck and back but any joint in the body as well as acute injuries to the extremities.

The overall goal of treatment is to reduce pain, increase joint mobility and improve function.

Chiropractic treatment includes mobilization and manipulation of the spine as well as the extremities, soft-tissue therapy and lifestyle counselling. Addressing muscular tightness and imbalances is a vital component of the care received at Nobleton Chiropractic and Rehab.

Using a variety of soft tissue therapies such as: trigger point therapy, muscle release therapy and instrument assisted soft tissue therapy to alleviate muscle tension. All patients will receive education as well as rehabilitation exercises to improve their daily and athletic performance. Other modalities such as acupuncture or therapeutic laser may be used to supplement healing.

What Do Chiropractors Do?

Chiropractors diagnose, treat and help prevent conditions and disorders related to muscles, bones, joints and nerves.

As primary care practitioners, chiropractors can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment and management plan, which may include manual therapy, exercise, and nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with other conditions.

The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustments loosen the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function.

Chiropractors may also utilize a wide range of other manual therapies as well as soft tissue therapy, therapeutic laser and joint mobilization. A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.

Chiropractors spend four years at an accredited chiropractic institution. The chiropractic curriculum at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto includes studies in anatomy, pathology, biomechanics, chiropractic principles, diagnosis and adjustment techniques.

Chiropractors are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title ‘Doctor,’ with its accompanying rights and obligations.

When Should I See a Chiropractor?

Eight out of ten Canadians will experience back pain at some point in their life, and at least one third of people in Ontario will have back pain at any given time. Many more people experience other problems with their muscles, bones, joints and nerves. For many people, the pain can keep them away from work, school or even their day-to-day activities. If these cause interruptions and restrictions in the activities of your daily life then you should consult a chiropractor.

A chiropractor will use the information from your history and exam to recommend the most appropriate treatment option for your needs.

Prior to starting treatment, all health professionals are required by law to obtain informed consent to treatment from their patients. You have a right to receive adequate and accurate information to help you evaluate your health care choices and balance the relative risks of treatment options with the benefits. It is important to discuss any questions or concerns that you have prior to any treatment. If you do not feel comfortable with any recommended course of treatment you should always ask for alternate options.

Chiropractic is regulated by provincial statute. Each province has a regulatory college, established by legislation in the same manner and with the same structure and similar regulations as the regulatory bodies for other health care professions.

Regulatory colleges are responsible for protecting the public interest, setting standards of practice, assuring quality of care is maintained, evaluating and promoting competency and handling disciplinary issues. Ontario’s chiropractors are regulated and licensed by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario.
