Canada’s chiropractors are musculoskeletal (MSK) experts, providing the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and preventative care of biomechanical disorders originating from the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems.
Chiropractor’s education prepares us to treat people of all age ranges, from infancy, to elderly.
Chiropractors primarily care for the spine as well as every other part of the body including the arms, legs, jaw and head.
Canadian chiropractors adopt evidence-informed practice principles to guide clinical decision making by integrating their clinical expertise, patient’s preferences and values, and the best available scientific evidence. Scientific literature has shown that chiropractic care is effective in the management of back pain, neck pain and many forms of headaches.
Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals. Government legislation designates a chiropractor as a Doctor of Chiropractic, which means that a medical doctor referral is not required to consult a chiropractor. As well, chiropractic care is covered by most extensive health care insurances.
