What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of your joints, muscles and nerves through the use of an adjustment. 

A spinal adjustment can restore normal movement, relieve pain and stimulate higher function of your brain and nervous system resulting in a renewed sense of vitality.

Will the chiropractor give me a spinal adjustment on the first visit?

Whether the patient receives an adjustment on the first visit is left to the discretion of the examining chiropractor. It depends on the examination findings and the patient's previous experience with chiropractic care

Is chiropractic care covered by OHIP?

Chiropractic services are not covered by OHIP.

However, most extended health plans cover chiropractic services, and we offer direct billing to most insurance companies.

What is the noise I hear during an adjustment?

When a chiropractor performs an adjustment or physically moves a bone, a pressure difference is created within the synovial joint. Gases released cause an audible sound to be heard.

Will I need X-rays?

Most chiropractors do require X-rays to be taken so that the actual bones can be visualized. X-rays can help confirm a chiropractor's diagnosis and can also rule out possible fractures.

Do chiropractors do massage therapy?

No. Chiropractors may do some soft tissue work (Myofasical therapy, Graston) on tight muscles but their main focus is on spinal and extremity adjustments. Chiropractors work very closely with registered massage therapists (RMTs).

Does chiropractic care hurt?

There may be some discomfort because of an injury to the muscle. Inflammation and strained muscles may feel sore after or during a treatment. Overall, there is pain relief and relaxation.

How long do the adjustments take?

The first visit lasts approximately 30 minutes. This allows time for the consultation, examination and treatment (may be split into 2 visits depending upon health history).

Subsequent visits lasts approximately 10 - 15 minutes

What is the Activator Technique?

Activator Methods is a specific chiropractic adjusting technique involving a low-force adjusting instrument. It works on the principle of balancing leg-lengths. By restoring motion to the key subluxated (restricted) joints in the body, Activator adjustment decrease neurological stress, increase joint range-of-motion and decrease pain.
