What are Chiropractors?

Doctors of Chiropractic are concerned with how the body’s nerves, muscles and joints function as a whole. They focus on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the body. They are specialists in using manipulations of joints to improve range of motion and flexibility, and to restore proper function. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.  Chiropractors may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects of discomfort associated with a medical condition.

Chiropractic care may also provide symptomatic relief to patients with chronic conditions. By treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment improves the general well being of the patient. In this regard, Canada’s chiropractors frequently provide complementary care as one element of a patient’s overall treatment program.
