Chiropractic literally translates into “working with the hands”. We use our hands to locate the cause of the problems to remove nerve interferences caused by muscle spasms and or joint/spinal restrictions. We like to consider the cause of the problems not as a disease but as “dis-ease”. By removing interferences related to muscle and spinal joint conditions, the nerve flow can return to its normal function without any restrictions upon it thus removing “dis-ease”
Physiotherapy incorporates different modalities such as electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, heat/ice, exercises and more. By using certain modalities, physiotherapy can help break down scar tissue, increase blood circulation and restore proper muscle biomechanics. By properly rehabilitating muscles and the body, you are able to reduce further aggravation or injury to the area of concern.
Do you suffer from foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip or back pain or more? Then custom orthotics may be the answer to your problems. Many aches and pains start when your feet are not aligned properly. Your feet may be flat or have too high of an arch. You may walk with your feet angled inwards or outwards causing strains throughout the body. When your feet are not bio-mechanically aligned, there is a strain that is transferred from your feet upwards. Misaligned feet causes a strain onto your ankles, knees, hips, back and even the neck. You may even find one hip lower than the other.

Magnetic therapy is a safe, non-invasive method of applying magnetic fields to the body for therapeutic and healing purposes. It helps to speed the healing process and improve quality of sleep without any adverse side effects. Whether used independently or as an adjunct to your current treatment, magnet therapy is very effective for natural pain relief due to musculo-skeletal injuries and chronic conditions, making it an excellent choice for anyone.
All physical and mental functions are controlled by electromagnetic fields produced by the movement of electro-chemicals (ions) within the body. When an injury occurs and tissue is damaged, positively charged ions move to the affected area, causing pain and swelling. In order for healing to take place, the injured site must be restored to its natural negative electromagnetic charge. Pain and inflammatory-related electro-chemicals must be removed and oxygen and nutrients transferred to the area.
