What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a manual approach used to diagnose, treat, and prevent musculoskeletal disorders affecting the spine, joints, pelvis, and nervous system. If you’re looking for a non-invasive solution for chronic conditions such as lower back pain, chiropractic may be ideal for you.
An Effective Pain Reliever
At Amherstview Family Chiropractic & Massage, we use chiropractic adjustments, or joint manipulation, as well as muscle stimulation to relieve the symptoms of various physical conditions. Our chiropractor, Dr. Helmstaedt, will gently but firmly attempt to realign precise areas of your body using his hands and highly specialized techniques such as mechanical adjusting methods, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release. We use drop pieces to adjust our chiropractic tables and make sure that all of our treatments are tailored to your needs.
But chiropractic doesn’t end there: after your first consultation, we’ll make sure you leave with a treatment plan, therapeutic exercises, and dietary and lifestyle advice. We may even take X-rays to understand any underlying problems behind your pain.
