Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is Chiropractic? What does a Chiropractor do?


A. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for conditions/injuries/disorders related to the spine, muscles, joints and nerves of the body. Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to evaluate and diagnose your condition, and with the best available evidence, work with you to determine the best course of treatment to relieve your pain and restore your mobility and function. 


Q. What is an Adjustment?


A. An adjustment, also known as a manipulation, is a highly skilled and precise movement applied by hand to a joint of the body. The intent of an adjustment is to restore or enhance function, reduce pain and stiffness, and regain proper movement to the affected area.


Q.  What is the “popping” sound when I get adjusted?


A. An adjustment typically results in pressure changes within the joint. This can result in the release of a gas bubble from between the joints, which makes an audible “popping” sound.


Q: Do I need a doctor’s note or a referral to visit a Chiropractor?


A: Chiropractors are legislated as primary care professionals in Canada, which means you can consult them directly with no referral necessary.
