Your North York Chiropractor administering natural health care methods to mobilize the body’s own healing abilities. They focus on the anatomy and function of the skeleton, primarily the spine, and the correction of neuro-musculoskeletal problems without the use of drugs or surgery.
In the province of Ontario, chiropractors are regulated by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario. Chiropractors are authorized to diagnose and perform manipulative therapy to treat neuro-musculoskeletal problems (nerves, muscles, bones) caused by spinal subluxations. Spinal subluxations are dysfunctional spinal segments that are fixated, and arise from stressors that are placed upon the bio-mechanical system. These subluxations are treated by gentle spinal manipulation. The effectiveness of this therapy is well supported by research.
Chiropractic care can provide relief from many of today’s most common health problems, including headaches, neck and back pain, and tension, as well as chronic conditions such as stiff joints, tendonitis, and arthritis. People of all ages can benefit from chiropractic care. Most back pain is caused by mechanical problems. That is, some sort of disruption in the normal way the spine functions. Taking medication such as Tylenol may numb the pain temporarily, but it does not address the root cause of the problem.
Chiropractic care and treatments are designed to treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
