What is Chiropractic?

In most cases, people know chiropractors to provide safe, gentle, and specific adjustments to the spine or other body parts in order to correct dysfunctional motion in the joints.

These adjustments help to increase range of motion, reduce pain, and restore function to the area of concern.

While adjusting is what chiropractors are best known for, evidence-based doctors of chiropractic offer a toolkit of additional treatment options to aid in healing. Some of these include:

  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Kinesiotaping
  • Acupuncture/needling
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy
  • Spinal Traction
  • Rehabilitation Exercises
  • And more….

The best part about seeing a chiropractor in Saskatchewan? We have many helpful privileges that allow us to collaborate with other providers to ensure that our patients get the best possible care.

What can I expect during my first visit?

We often find that people who have never visited a chiropractor are very nervous approaching their first visit.

The visit will work like this:

1️⃣History: we take a thorough history and ask questions about your injury/pain as well as a full medical history to make sure all your health concerns are considered.

2️⃣Physical: we will go through some physical testing to find where the pain is coming from and what the diagnosis may be.

3️⃣Diagnosis: we will explain where the pain is coming from. Muscles, joints, etc.

4️⃣Report of Findings: we go through a list of options regarding treatment and prognosis as well as an explanation of risks and benefits.

5️⃣Consent: This is the part where YOU CAN TELL US WHAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH AND UNCOMFORTABLE WITH. Nothing happens without our patients' input!

6️⃣Treatment: once the doctor and the patient agree on all factors involved, we begin treatment to get you better!

7️⃣Follow Up Care: most conditions require some follow up care as well as a rehab component to ensure that the condition remains controlled.

Our doctors will work with you to ensure that your care fits with your comfort. Don't like being adjusted? Great! Let's do some gentle joint mobilization! You've had great results with acupuncture? Awesome! Come see us for some needling?

We've got what you need! And if we can't get you better, we will refer you to a professional that can!
