The art and science of Chiropractic is a way to address the neuromuscular system: the nerves, muscles and joints of the body. Chiropractors are trained in the assessment and treatment of the skeleton and the muscles and tissues used to move the structure of the body, to return to normal balance. By using gentle, non-invasive techniques, the doctors assess and address your body to bring it back to the way it is meant to move. Chiropractic doctors receive in-depth training in their specialty and are acutely aware of what is ‘normal’ and what is not. The education focuses on proper understanding of the many organ systems of the body and how they work together. Every client is interviewed for medical history, followed by a complete physical examination to determine the status of the body.

Chiropractic therapies relieve many symptoms, like stiffness, irregular motion, or painful sensations like dull ache or sharp and acute pain. It is the goal of the chiropractor to restore the normal pattern by using gentle techniques and education for each patient. The chiropractic doctor aims to assist the body to resume normal joint position, range of motion, nerve system function, muscle tone and movement patterns. Various techniques are used to feel how the joints of the spine, pelvis and skeleton are moving. Every person is treated with an individual plan of therapy at Sound Chiropractic & Health Sciences Centres. Each plan is designed to address the specific diagnosis and to meet the health and wellness goals of the patient. Treatment can include gentle chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, therapeutic exercises, dietary and lifestyle changes as well as other complimentary therapies. It is common for home exercises to be demonstrated, to address postural and office ergonomic components of the care plan. Simple suggestions for changes can often have a dramatic effect.
