17 Apr What makes our chiro treatments different
Chiropractic care is a branch of manual health care that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of injuries and pain related to neck and shoulder pain relief. It’s one of the gentlest methods of healing if you are looking to reduce the use of pain medication or avoid injections and surgeries.
Did you know that Chiropractors are known to perform a signature procedure called spinal or joint manipulation? Spinal or joint manipulation is a painless procedure where the chiropractor will use their hands to add a controlled manual thrust to a joint of your spine or limb to allow it to move better. The amount of force depends on many factors such as body weight, type of injuries, the severity of pain and duration of the injury. The result is a spinal segment or joint that becomes finally mobile and pain-free!
Although all licensed chiropractors perform spinal or joint manipulation, the chiropractors who work at Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic do much more than just spinal or joint manipulation. This is what makes us different and unique. By adding other types of treatments such as Graston Technique, spinal decompression Ottawa, acupuncture, custom-orthotics, myofascial release therapy, electrical modalities and exercises, we ensure that – if someone for some reason (ie. safety, anxiety, medical condition, spinal or joint contraindication) is not a candidate for chiropractic adjustments – we are able to give them different treatment solutions that match their needs without having to give them an adjustment.
However, the goal of becoming a chiropractic patient is NOT only to END PAIN. It becomes a way of living. We’re here to help you achieve your FUNCTIONAL GOALS TOO with the help of our physiotherapists. At Kent Chiro-Med Wellness Clinic, our chiropractors understand that many of their patients come to our clinic with very specific functional goals. Do you want to be able to surf in California this summer, but your wrist pain is limiting your surfing? Are you a grandmother who has shoulder pain but wants to be able to pick up her newborn grandson without suffering from pain? Are you a yellow school bus driver who wants to make sure you don’t miss out on work because of recurrent back pain? Whatever your functional goals are, we’re here to help you achieve them!
Your functional goals are as IMPORTANT to us as your pain management. The success of our clinic’s model resides in the fact that we have a solid back-and-forth relationship between our physiotherapists and chiropractors. We split the model into two: first, we ensure that we get rid of that pain as soon as possible for you through chiropractic care. Without pain, your mind is set to help the immobilized area move without discomfort, apprehension or aversion to movements. Motion becomes easier. This is where the second part of the model comes in to help with rehabilitation and accomplishing your functional goals through physiotherapy Ottawa. Our physiotherapists will review your personal functional goals and will ensure that their exercise plan is helping you achieve these goals.
But what’s so unique about our chiropractic care, you may ask?
The answer is: we genuinely believe that the power of the healing comes from (1) an excellent knowledge and understanding of the human body, (2) an excellent manual care and (3) great, approachable personalities. We’re here to empower everyone and allow them to appreciate the value of what we’re doing to help them heal their bodies. Every single patient who walks out of our treatment rooms will notice an immediate sense of relief. We educate our patients a lot and all of them leave the clinic firmly understanding the whys, hows and whats of their pain. We don’t X-Ray all our new patients. We rely on extensive orthopaedic testings, proper history/physical examination and knowledge of the muscles/joints anatomy. We are fully equipped to understand the management of difficult conditions such as sciatica, chronic headaches, jaw tension, pinched nerves in the spine, recurrent sudden muscle spasms in the back, hip dysplagia, tailbone pain, neck twinge, frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis and many more. These are just the tip of the iceberg for conditions that our chiropractors can happily and confidently help you resolve – or at least improve.
By choosing our chiropractic services, you are ensured that you don’t walk into our treatment rooms for a five minutes chiropractic adjustments, leaving you feeling that you could have needed more. You will be noticing that every second counts within our 20-30 minutes appointments. You will feel better after each appointment through attention to details, genuine care from your chiropractor and in-depth manual chiropractic treatments. Even though your treatment plan is specific, each time you come to your appointment, your experience is unique. That is because our treatments are dynamic. We are constantly adapting them around the evolution of your pain.
