Adjustments for Your
Well-Being

Chiropractors are the spine, muscle, and nervous system experts. Our highly-trained chiropractic specialists provide qualified and effective treatments to improve the overall quality of life of our patients. Over 4.5 million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year to alleviate pain and help the body heal itself.

Typically, chiropractic care is centred around spinal manipulation, but can also include other therapies, such as exercise education and ergonomic training.

When you visit Optimum Wellness Centres for a consultation, you will be met with friendly staff to check and make sure that all of your required information is on file. We will then have a no-obligation conversation about why you are seeking treatment and what your expectations are.

Your health history and lifestyle will then be discussed to pinpoint the underlying cause of your pain or discomfort.

Your doctor will perform a physical examination while paying particular attention to your spine. We may also recommend other exams or tests, including an x-ray. After a physical examination, we can accurately determine if chiropractic care is right for you. Depending on your condition, lifestyle, and goals, we will tailor a customized treatment plan that is unique to you.

Usually, you will be required to attend regular appointments over a few months. However, your treatment plan will reflect your unique needs.

Treatment Options & Plans

Your treatment plan is centred around your body, your lifestyle, and your goals. Typically, treatment plans involve manual adjustments where your doctor manipulates your joints with a controlled force to increase your range and quality of motion. These are the adjustments that are accompanied by a “popping” or “cracking” sound.

Alongside manual adjustments, your Chiropractor may incorporate other techniques, exercise education, and recommend other modalities.

FAQs

An adjustment is a controlled, precise movement applied to the joints of the body. Adjustments can restore proper motion and function to joints and are typically accompanied by a “cracking” or “popping” noise.

No. In Canada, chiropractors are legislated as primary contact healthcare professionals, so you can contact us directly.

During chiropractic treatments, the sound heard is the release of gas or air in the joint space between the bones.

Most chiropractic treatments are used to treat back pain, but our expertly-trained chiropractors can address pain or dysfunction in any joint in the body. Most of our staff have supplemental training in various therapeutic modalities, rehabilitation, neurology, and more.
