"What do Chiropractors do?"

STANDARDIZED ASSOCIATION CONTENT

A very important part of having a successful website, is well-written content; content that gives your visitors more information about your clinic, your practice, as well as any other important pieces that you would like to share (including intake forms, health & nutritional guides, etc.).

If you do not already have website content that you would like to use on your new website, you can utilize any page from our Standardized Content. These are generically written pages that apply to everyone in our practice. You can use all or some of these, or a combination of these pages and your own. Just let your developer know during the set up process.

What do Chiropractors do?

Chiropractors diagnose, treat and help prevent conditions and disorders related to muscles, bones, joints and nerves.

As primary care practitioners, chiropractors can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment and management plan, which may include manual therapy, exercise, and nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

Chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with other conditions.

The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustments loosen the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function.

Chiropractors may also utilize a wide range of other manual therapies as well as heat, laser and ultrasound. A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.

Chiropractors spend four years at an accredited chiropractic institution. The chiropractic curriculum at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto includes studies in anatomy, pathology, biomechanics, chiropractic principles, diagnosis and adjustment techniques.

Chiropractors are one of only five classes of health care professionals in Ontario that are able to use the title ‘Doctor,’ with its accompanying rights and obligations.
