Chiropractic

"Every patient carries her or his own doctor inside."
– Albert Schweitzer

Chiropractic is a skilled, hands-on health care treatment that relieves pain and helps your body be its best. By using safe and gentle hands-on procedures to correct misaligned vertebrae and postural imbalances, Chiropractic care can also help improve your posture, muscle balance, mobility, posture and overall sense of well being.

What is Chiropractic?

The word “chiropractic” comes from the ancient Greek and means “done by hand”. As a hands-on, non-invasive and drug-free regulated health care discipline, Chiropractic focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of conditions related to the spine, nervous system and joints, using hands-on adjustments to return the affected area of your body to its proper alignment, relieving pain and allowing you to return to your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.

Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as Chiropractors, are primary health care providers licensed in all Canadian provinces and territories. Patients do not need another doctor’s referral to see a Chiropractor.

During your first visit, your applemed Chiropractor will perform a complete history and assessment and then will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan. Your Chiropractor may also recommend therapeutic exercise and/or other non-invasive therapies, nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling. Each chiropractic session is tailored specifically to your individual needs, injury, condition or situation.
