Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and hands-on complementary and alternative medicine that is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system (i.e. joints and muscles of the spine and extremities).
Chiropractors are regulated primary health care professionals who have exceptional diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling.
In a specific and individualized treatment plan tailored to the goals of the patient, chiropractors may use a combination of manual therapy, modality usage (i.e. acupuncture, ultrasound etc.), and rehabilitative and corrective exercises. Manual therapy techniques could include but are not limited to joint manipulation, joint mobilization, and soft tissue therapy
At Joint Reaction Health Center, your chiropractor will perform an initial examination to determine the proper treatment plan suited for you. This is done through a thorough history and physical examination, and possibly the useof further imaging such as referral for an x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound, or MRI if needed.

An adjustment manual technique in which your chiropractor will apply a very quick thrust into an area of the body which has poor/restricted joint movement, to achieve increased joint movement and ultimately better range of motion and decreased pain levels.
