What is chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system (the nerves, bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue) and the way in which this inter-relates with the body as a whole.
It combines scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology and clinical methods of investigation.
After treatment, a chiropractor can advise on maintaining a realistic level of health and avoiding things that might be damaging. For example, remedial exercises to adjust posture, or advice on diet and lifestyle can be given as part of a personal health care program.
Chiropractors are one of several health professionals designated as “doctors” under the laws of Ontario. Chiropractors, after having attained their university degree, undergo four years of rigorous post-graduate studies at an accredited chiropractic college (there are two in Canada).
