Services

Under the care of our chiropractors, a comprehensive program of active exercises, manipulation, mobilization, adjustment and physical therapies
(IFC, TENS, ultrasound, etc.) is created for each individual patient.

This facilitates both a faster recovery and return to optimal health. Our chiropractors have post-graduate degrees in chiropractic rehabilitation sciences.
They specialize in manual therapy, functional rehabilitation, and high-performance personal training. They provide hands-on treatment and utilize a
one-to-one patient/therapist approach.

Physical therapy provides treatment to individuals who need to develop or maintain and restore maximum movement and function in their everyday life.

This includes providing treatment in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by aging, injury, disease or environmental factors.
Physical therapy is concerned with the identifying and maximizing the quality of life and treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitation.

This encompasses physical, psychological, emotional, and social well being. It involves the interaction between the physical therapist and the patient,
in a process where movement potential is assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to that of a physical therapist.

It is performed by either a physical therapist (PT) or an assistant (PTA) acting under the supervision of a chiropractor.

Used on its own, or in conjunction with other therapies, massage therapy can successfully alleviate soft tissue discomfort associated
with everyday stress, muscular overuse, and numerous chronic pain syndromes.

If delivered early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, massage therapy can greatly reduce the onset of muscular problems.

Our registered massage therapists are experts in a wide variety of massage techniques, and will carefully assess the most ideal message
treatment for the patient’s case.

Acupuncture has been in continuous use for more than 3,000 years, and is a popular healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

It involves inserting lender needles into specific points on the body along channel, or meridians, under the skin. Acupuncture helps the body
regain its healthy state of balance. Traditionally, it is believed that stimulating these points with needles or massage, promotes the circulation
‘of blood and vital energy along the channels called “Qi.” When it is lacking, we become run down, fatigued, and prone to infections.

The channels also connect to all the internal organs. Acupuncture allows for a release of certain hormones like endorphins and cortisone to help
reduce the effect of pressure and decrease pain. Conditions such as back pain, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and sprains respond tremendously
well to acupuncture treatment.

Occupational therapy is the use of assessment and treatment to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with a physical,
mental, or cognitive disorder. Occupational therapists also focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence
and participation in daily activities.

Occupational therapy is a patient-centered practice that places emphasis on the progress towards the patient’s goals. Occupational therapy interventions
focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the patient and their family in order to increase participation in
and performance of daily activities.

A psychological evaluation consists of an interview, standard written tests and scoring. This assessment is used to investigate and understand how an
accident has affected the patient’s emotional functioning and thought process. The impact of emotional functioning and thought process on the patient’s
pain condition is also explored.

This evaluation ultimately leads to treatment recommendations, with the goal of returning the patient to normal functioning.

Are you a candidate for custom orthotics or modified orthopaedic footwear? If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your feet, ankles, knees,
hips, or lower back, the cause may be a functional problem with either your feet or ill-fi tting shoes. Our specialists will help you to feel comfort again,
by dealing directly with the specific cause of the problems.

DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING

Digital X-ray

X-ray plays an important role in determining the cause for many health complications with patients.

Digital X-rays have many key advantages including:

  •  Allow physicians to pinpoint the exact cause of a patient’s complaint / pain.
  • Less radiation exposure to the patient versus conventional radiography.
  • Exporting of data and transferring information to other practitioners is fast and convenient way.
  • Digital enhancement of images without the use of chemical processing.
  • Allows practitioners to serve patients faster and with a high level of care.

Video Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the spine and extremities. The primary application in medical imaging is to allow the practitioner to clearly view abnormal joint structures, assisting in the diagnosis and clinical management of the patient. There is no other imaging technique that can display functional motion between any joint in the body better than Fluoroscopy.

The most common symptoms that Fluoroscopy can be used to investigate are unresolved headaches, chronic neck or lower back pain as well as pain in any joint that increases with movement. This is especially true when the patient has had static X-rays or other MRI scans that may not have demonstrated positive findings.

Fluoroscopy helps to reveal ligament injuries and fractures that may not be seen with static X-rays, CT or MRI scans.
