Move Better. Feel Better. Live Better
Can Chiropractic help you?
Doctors of chiropractic, diagnose, treat and help to prevent conditions and disorders that cause back pain, neck pain, and problems related to your pelvis and extremities.
Chiropractic care begins with a complete health history followed by a thorough focused physical exam in order to determine a diagnosis or identify the cause of your pain. A focused physical exam helps to also identify any biomechanical errors which may be the underlying cause for the injury.
During the course of therapy these findings are used to evaluate your overall recovery. At In Balance Family Chiropractic and Wellness Centre we encourage our patients to look beyond their symptoms, and achieve a better state of health by focusing on rebuilding their strength, flexibility, and balance.
How long will it take to fully recovery?
Once a diagnosis has been provided the doctor will answer any questions you may have. A customized treatment plan will be provided as well as treatment options. Recovery will depend on many factors like the nature of your injury, the stage of recovery, appropriate frequency of care, and patient preferences to care.
In the acute stage, treatment is often provided during the initial visit. The doctor will often recommend a plan of management that is both specific to your condition and your needs.
In the chronic stage, the patient and the doctor will often review any previous findings (reports, MRI, plain film radiographs etc) and then recommend an initial consultation prior to providing treatment. The consultation will include a complete history of the condition followed by a focused physical examination. After determining first line therapy, frequency and duration of care, treatment is often scheduled for a later date.
Chiropractic care at In Balance focuses on function. This ensures that the biomechanical faults as well as the site of injury are addressed. Your treatment may consist of spinal and soft tissue manipulation, exercise prescription, gentle joint mobilization and therapeutic modalities.
Gentle mobilizations or manual manipulation may be used in order to restore normal joint ranges of motion and flexibility (ultrasound, electrotherapy) may be provide temporary pain relief, promote healing, and restore optimal function.
Once the initial symptoms have resolved, a home exercise program may be prescribed to correct muscle and joint function, restore proper biomechanics and to help prevent re-injury.
