Chiropractic




Chiropractic is a health discipline that addresses the musculoskeletal system in a holistic manner and uses a hands-on approach for treating pain and dysfunction. Chiropractors are trained to provide diagnosis and analyze the relationship between muscles, joints and nerves in order to determine the source of physical pain. With this knowledge, chiropractors provide treatment to relieve present pain and prevent future pain.

Chiropractic is a regulated health profession, recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces and American states. More than 1.2 million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy, active lives. Chiropractic care can benefit all types of patients from children, pregnant women, athletes and elderly.

There are many reasons to see a chiropractor:

At Progressive, our chiropractors combine a variety of treatment techniques tailored to the individual needs and goals of each patient to correct “misaligned” or locked joints, restore motion, reduce muscle tension and guarding, and promote healing. They will use various treatment techniques including, but not limited to, chiropractic manipulation/mobilization, soft tissue therapy such as myofascial release technique and acupuncture, exercise prescription, postural evaluation, nutritional/lifestyle counseling, and custom orthotic therapy.
