Conditions

The common perception of chiropractic is largely associated with the spine being its sole focus of treatment.  However, quite the opposite is true. Modern chiropractors treat a vast range of conditions involving not only the spine and back, but also the extremities; from shoulders to fingertips, and hips to toes. Chiropractors have an in depth knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics of the human body, and are trained to address conditions from the source, not just the symptoms.  Click the links below to find out more about the specific conditions.

Common conditions
Ankle Sprain

Ankle sprains come in varying grades of severity which require different levels of intervention.

Headaches

Headaches are a common phenomenon that most people have experienced at some point during their lives.  While some people get headaches rarely and relate them to dehydration or pressure changes, others experience headaches on a somewhat frequent basis.

Knee Injuries

Knee injuries occur when abnormal forces or loads are placed on the knee, often during sport or labour intensive work.

Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is a broad term that can mean many things to different people.  While some types of back pain are due to a muscular sprain/strain injury in the low back and can be resolved quickly and efficiently with proper treatment and rehabilitation, other types of pain are more complicated.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is extremely common, and comes in many forms.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is caused by a combination of improper biomechanics and repetitive movements.

Rehabilitation

Treatment of a condition to the point where pain has decreased is not the end of the road. It is important to ensure that the body is strong and agile enough to sustain normal loads so that the same injury does not reoccur.

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder injuries are a common source of concern for chiropractic patients. These people will describe difficulty with reaching overhead or behind their back, or an inability to move their shoulder beyond a certain range due to pain or the shoulder feeling “stuck”.

Upper Crossed Syndrome

This condition, also commonly known as “student syndrome”, is a classic condition amongst those who spend large amounts of time stationary at a desk.

Wrist Pain

The wrist is a complex of multiple joints that are required to function as the flexible link between the hand and the forearm.  Wrist complaints are often the result of direct trauma, falls, overuse, and arthritides.
