What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a patient-centred, non-invasive, hands-on, regulated health care profession focused on your spine, muscles, joints and nervous system.
Chiropractors use the best available evidence and clinical expertise to diagnose issues that affect your body’s movement. They treat them without medication or surgery and prevent them from returning. Chiropractic care can also promote health and improve your quality of life, as well as alleviate pain
Some of the conditions chiropractors treat include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Hip pain
- Pain associated with arthritis
- Work and sports injuries
- Jaw pain
- Pain related to pregnancy
But you don’t have to be in persistent or long-term pain to visit a chiropractor. Many people from pregnant women to athletes visit chiropractors to alleviate sporadic pain, reduce their risk of injuries or to improve their flexibility, mobility and posture.
Providing gentle, whole body approach care for the entire family using chiropractic techniques, soft tissue therapy, exercise and rehabilitation.
While the entire family is welcome, Dr. Sophia has a strong passion for raising the standard of health care for women. She saw the gap in health care and made it her mission to fill that gap. Woman should also not have to go through the common pains of pregnancy alone and without guidance, education and help. Women should have a strong support team for pregnancy and postpartum. We believe in collaboration and working as a team with other health care providers to give the best care possible. We work with pelvic floor physiotherapists, midwives, lactation consultants, massage therapists, osteopaths, acupuncturists, naturopaths, medical doctors and many other professionals to make sure our clients receive the best care possible. The jack of all trades is the master of none. We know our strengths but also our weaknesses. Let us help you have the best pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum experience possible and get back to enjoy doing what you love.
