Chiropractic care is used for all types of injuries, from runners with plantar fasciitis, to office workers with neck pain. Chiropractors are licensed health care professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and management of neuromusculoskeletal injuries.

Chiropractors in Ottawa do much more than adjustments. Treatments also involve active release of tight muscles, neurofunctional acupuncture, shockwave therapy, and corrective exercises.

During the chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor uses his/her hands to manipulate the joints of the body - particularly the spine - in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function. Chiropractic adjustments are used to reduce spasm & chronic tension in the muscles that surround and act on the affected joints. When performed on the neck & back, manipulations help to reduce unwanted pressures on the spinal cord and nerves, thereby improving the function of the nervous system. Adjustments are also used on other parts of the body, including the feet, ankles, wrists and shoulders. These adjustments are effective at improving range of motion and gait mechanics in the affected area.

Physiotherapy is used as a form of rehabilitation for a variety of injuries and/or illnesses that impede daily activity, movement and exercise. Physiotherapists apply techniques to rehabilitate, prevent future injury and maintain overall health in patients. This is achieved mainly through the use of manual therapy or “hands-on” approaches that can include joint mobilization, muscle stretching, strength building and exercise prescription. Many physiotherapists also make use of additional tools such as ultrasound, acupuncture, heat/cold, stretching bands and electrical stimulation to increase healing. Physiotherapy targets whole-body wellness and aims to maximize movement and function in a person.


Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a patient-centered approach to health. It is guided by principles relating to the patient as a whole. These principles are: 1. The body is an integrated functional unit with all its parts working together 2. Structure & function are reciprocally inter-related - any abnormality of structure misalignment, restricted mobility, etc. - may create dysfunction either locally or elsewh... Read More

Osteopathy is a patient-centered approach to health.
It is guided by principles relating to the patient as a whole. These principles are:
1. The body is an integrated functional unit with all its parts working together
2. Structure & function are reciprocally inter-related - any abnormality of structure misalignment, restricted mobility, etc. - may create dysfunction either locally or elsewhere in the body.
3. The body has natural auto-regulation, defense and healing mechanisms. Treatment facilitates the process by removing obstacles.
4. Unrestricted flow of body fluids (blood, lymph, cerebrospinal) is essential for health.
Skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the osteopath to assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral.

In health, the body seeks to maintain a balance within and between these systems. The osteopath uses a wide array of manual approaches to reduce and resolve strains, stress and dysfunction in all areas of the body.
