The Doctor of Chiropractic at Westmount Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation is specifically trained to assess and treat disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.
Chiropractic care uses a combination of techniques depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. One of the unique therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), often referred to as an adjustment. Specialized training in SMT allows the chiropractor to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.
When your joints aren’t moving well, or are restricted, it can cause significant pain in the joints themselves as well as in the ligaments and muscles surrounding the joints. Chiropractic care may also involve therapies directed at the muscles and ligaments surrounding the joints as well as patient education to teach you proper techniques to reduce the chance of re-injury or aggravation.
Whether your pain has developed quickly due to injury or over time due to lifestyle habits your chiropractor will provide qualified, effective treatment to promote health, alleviate pain, and improve your quality of life.
