Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a therapeutic treatment that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system of the body, which includes the bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Through the use of spinal adjustments, a chiropractor will restore alignment and improve how your body functions physically in order to cure pain. Chiropractic treatment can therefore benefit a wide range of patients, including those with sports injuries, physical disabilities, and chronic conditions as well as veterans and seniors.

Hydroactive clinic offers a more specialized form of chiropractic care. We’re a Structural Corrective Specialist clinic. Our doctor’s training goes well beyond that of regular chiropractors because they have trained to have a specialty in structural correction.

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is first and foremost a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system.

Who Is A Chiropractor?

Chiropractors diagnose, treat and provide preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

How Chiropractic Can Benefit You

Applying their specialized training and using hands-on techniques and dedicated equipment, our chiropractors help you achieve better alignment in the spine to relieve the symptoms of many health-related issues. While they most commonly use these techniques to treat pain in the lower back, neck, and muscles as well as chronic headaches, chiropractors are trained to treat any kind of bone, muscle, or joint pain or dysfunction.

Primarily focused on managing or eliminating pain in the neuromusculoskeletal system, chiropractic care is well-suited to treating a wide range of conditions and disorders, including:

  • Repetitive strain injury (RSI)

  • Work and sports injuries

  • Motor Vehicle Accident injuries

  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Joint pain and dysfunction

  • Postural dysfunctions

  • Whiplash

  • Peripheral nerve entrapments

  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

  • Strains and sprains

  • Stiff muscles and muscle aches

  • Muscle imbalance

  • Pinched nerves

  • Disc displacement/herniation

  • Post-surgical spinal pain and dysfunction

  • TMJ

  • Arthritis

  • Tendonitis

  • Sciatica

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Scoliosis

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis

  • Piriformis Syndrome

Having an injury, condition, or disorder is not a prerequisite to seeking chiropractic care. The majority of patients have found chiropractic useful for restoring energy, improving digestive problems, strengthening the immune system, and fostering overall well-being.

Types of Chiropractic treatment used at Hydroactive

Spinal manipulative therapy, or SMT, is one of the most commonly used techniques by chiropractors. Skilled and precise adjustments оf the vertebrae correct​ joint motion to restore proper movement and improve functionality.

A hands-on manual treatment provided by our chiropractors at our Vaughan clinic helps with reducing pain, increasing the ​range of motion and relaxing tensed up muscles, as well as, improving overall musculoskeletal health.

Myofascial Release Therapy (MRT) is a highly specialized stretching technique that is applied to patients with various soft tissue issues. Unlike massage, MRT equalizes muscle tension by releasing tightness and stretching the fascia of the muscles.

A highly precise, gentle and gradual adjustment of soft tissue and joints of the body is called mobilization. Mobilization is used to improve joint mobility, reduce pain and diagnose the source of discomfort.

Chiropractors use a wide range of hands-on, skillfully executed techniques that provide relief to pain, stress and other issues. These include mobilization, manipulation, soft tissue massage, and muscle energy techniques.

Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief

The most common problems for which patients seek chiropractic treatment are low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. One of the primary benefits of choosing chiropractic care for pain relief is that it offers an effective alternative to surgical and pharmaceutical options for pain and headache relief.

Chiropractic care combines hands-on therapy and advanced equipment to get to the root of your pain
problems, negating the need for pharmaceuticals and surgeries that come along with a host of potential
side effects and longer recovery times. Your chiropractor’s primary goal is to help eliminate pain altogether but, at the very least, they can help reduce and manage your pain and provide an increased range of motion.

Chiropractic Care for Sports Injuries

Athletes are at a higher risk than most people for injury and recurrent pain. Chiropractors specialized in Structural Correction are an incredible resource for the management and prevention of sports-related injuries in professional and recreational athletes alike.

To aid in the restoration of strength and balance, your chiropractor will develop a personalized treatment plan suited to your specific injury and needs. Using advanced equipment and innovative techniques such as joint manipulation and mobilization, adjunct modalities, and soft tissue therapies, as well as exercises and lifestyle advice, they can hasten your recovery and get you back in the game faster.

But these health professionals also go above and beyond diagnosing an injury. They’re capable of identifying the root cause, which can help you prevent re-injury in the future.

What Is a Structural Correction Clinic?

When the vertebrae of your spine have shifted from the correct position, this puts significant pressure on your joints, discs and, most importantly, your nerves. The focus on the nerves that run from the spine and into different parts of the body are especially important in structural correction. This is because, when the nerves in your spine come under undue pressure due to misalignment, it can result in anything from pain in the neck, back, and shoulders to numbness, tingling, and migraines, as well as weight gain, loss of energy, and issues with the thyroid.

Our Structural Corrective Chiropractor specializes in treating patients whose spine has shifted from normal alignment. After a complete exam – which includes X-rays, Static postural exam, surface EMG, bilateral digital posture weight distribution analysis and Gait analysis – he will be able to find the root cause of your problem, treat the segment(s) of the spine where the misalignment has occurred and, ultimately, reverse the pressure on the nerves that cause all sorts of health issues. This type of treatment both relieves the symptoms you’re currently experiencing and ensures that they neverreturn.
