Chiropractic is the use of manual therapy with orthopedic, neurologic and movement-based assessment to diagnose and treat biomechanical pain.
We use a variety of skills to evaluate the patient’s complaint and set up a treatment plan which includes pain management and prevention.
At Diversified Integrated Sports Clinic, we work within an integrated team environment, and once the patient is evaluated and assessed, the treatment plan usually involves manual therapy such as spine and extremity mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue therapy such as massage, active release techniques, dry needling, cupping, fascial taping and then rehabilitation of the body using movement and exercise based techniques. This involves co-management with the physiotherapists, sports therapists, massage therapists, strength and conditioning or movement coach. We also work with a great network of medical doctors such as orthopedists, neurologists, obstetricians and sports medicine practitioners to manage cases that fall beyond our scope.
As a consequence, we both manage pain and prevent future onset of pain, by educating the patient about correct movement habits, ergonomics and physical structure changes.
Our chiropractors use a variety of manual techniques to suit the patient’s needs and tolerance levels and are skilled in adjunct therapies such as Graston technique, Sacro-occipital blocking, acupuncture, flexion traction for disc herniation as well as physiotherapy modalities. We treat conditions ranging from back pain, headaches, migraines, joint pain, sprains and strains, sports overuse or overtraining injuries, postural dysfunction, pregnancy pain, sciatica and much more!
