When we have a clear understanding of your condition, we will discuss it with you. We believe optimum health care depends on cooperation between doctor and patient. We will provide you with treatment options, and assist you in the formulation of a personalized treatment plan.
Your treatment may include adjustments (manipulation), in which a precise degree of pressure is exerted to correct dysfunction at various joints. The goal is to restore joint mobility, reduce nerve irritation, relax muscles and assist the natural healing abilities of the body. Adjustments are done manually, or with a small instrument and are gentle, specific and precise. We pride ourselves on our gentle touch.
Your treatment plan
Your treatment plan may include advice about life-style, home care suggestions, or other recommendations, and may also include physiotherapy such as ultrasound, traction, specific exercises or other treatments to hasten recovery. Chiropractic care is an extremely safe form of health care in particular when compared to drugs (even over the counter) or surgery. The doctor will discuss the risks, benefits and alternatives to any care we recommend.
How long will it take?
That of course depends on your goals, the severity of your condition, and a number of other factors. Generally we place patients on a short trial of therapy, perhaps over 2-3 weeks. If your condition resolves sooner, great! If not, we will monitor your progress, and of course we are happy to communicate with any other health care professionals you may see, for your further benefit.
