The word “chiropractic” comes from the ancient Greek and means “work done by hand.”

Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints. Chiropractors are also trained to prescribe therapeutic exercise, provide nutritional counselling, and recommend rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.

Adjusting of the joints of the body has been used in the healing arts for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care.

Back pain, neck pain and headache are the most common reasons why Canadians first consult a chiropractor. Aching joints and muscle pain that affect one’s ability to get through the day and prevent participation in favorite activities, can be alleviated and corrected with chiropractic care. Your Santé Group HealthCare Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) will assess your symptoms and recommend a treatment plan to put you on the road to recovery. Your chiropractor can also provide expert advice to help you prevent pain and injury from recurring.

Chiropractors are highly skilled at delivering an extremely precise movement, an adjustment, usually applied by hand to a joint of the body. Adjustment of the joint restores proper movement, relieves pressure from the nerves, alleviates pain, and optimizes function.

Chiropractors are primary health care providers, like your family doctor or dentist. You don’t need a referral from a medical doctor or anyone else to begin chiropractic care. Our knowledgeable staff can field most questions over the telephone. If you wish to explore a concern more privately, just ask to speak with the Dr. at Santé. Contact Santé Group HealthCare today.
