Chiropractic is based on the belief that misalignments in the spine can cause joint and neurological tissue injury. Improper lifting of heavy objects, repetitive stress, traumatic events, and poor posture are some of the ways the spine can become misaligned. This can cause physical and chemical changes in the body that can injure neurological tissue. This results in inflammation, pain and decreased function to the affected area. Controlled manual manipulation (adjustment) helps to alleviate inflammation and pain, which in turn allows tissues to heal and joint mobility to be restored.

Doctors of Chiropractic utilize a hands-on approach to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients, recommending therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Chiropractic Adjustment In Mississauga

Chiropractors focus on the nerve system (the brain and spinal cord), which manages the body’s vast chemical interactions to help ensure proper function. The brain sends messages through the spinal cord across a huge network of spinal nerves to deliver information to every cell, organ and system of the body. This information system coordinates the many chemical reactions that dictate how well you sleep, how food is digested, your ability to concentrate, physical coordination, the capabilities of the immune system and all aspects of body function.
Acupuncture Provides Effective Pain Relief

The practice of inserting fine needles on specific meridian points for the purpose of relieving tension, stress, and pain. Highly useful in the treatment and relief of back pain. Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and improve function. This is done by inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are as fine as a human hair) into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to treat a wide variety of illnesses.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical therapy to treat chronic back and neck pain associated with spinal disc problems. In the most basic terms, spinal decompression therapy is advanced technology “traction” combined with a much better understanding of human physiology. Back Pain is often caused by misalignment in the spine. The treatment alternates between gentle stretching and relaxation to realign the spine while enhancing the body’s natural healing process. Spinal decompression is recommended for:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Bulging Disc
  • Herniated disc
  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Arm/pain numbness
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Degenerative discs
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
  • Arthritis
