Chiropractic Care

Doctors of chiropractic diagnose, treat, and help prevent conditions and disorders related to muscle, bones, joints, and nerves. Their knowledge of anatomy, pathology, and biomechanics sets them apart for the care of the dynamic human body. As primary care practitioners, chiropractors provide a range of care that may include manual therapy, exercise, nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling. Chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other holistic care by relieving musculoskeletal issues associated with other conditions.
