While many consult our downtown Toronto office for pain or symptomatic relief, chiropractic care is about much more than keeping you pain-free. Chiropractic focuses on the integrity of your nervous system, which regulates and controls every function in your body. Moving spinal bones can impair this vital communication link between your brain and body. Daily physical, emotional, and chemical stressors that infants, children and adults experience can cause spinal joints to become ‘stuck’, inhibiting quality of life. Focused, natural adjustments to correct spinal impairments help to nerve irritation, returning the individual to an optimal state of health.
This innovative scanning technology provides vital information on how each step you take may be putting undue pressure on your ankles, knees, hips and lower back. This pressure can cause misalignment If required we can use this information to create custom-made orthotics to rectify the problem, and help you to hold your chiropractic adjustments. By controlling and optimizing foot function even without existing pain and dysfunction, you can significantly reduce the risk of developing some of the many related health problems later in life
Proper foot mechanics are imperative to the muscles and ligaments leading up to the hips and holding the leg bones in place. Incorrect biomechanics can cause problems of varying degrees, some of which can be extremely painful and even disabling. In most cases, foot orthotics can be employed to help alleviate and even correct conditions to achieve more efficient muscle performance. Either through corrective orthodic inserts or footwear, many individuals use these custom-made devices to help absorb and distribute shock while providing relief from daily stress and injury.
Exercise and Nutrition Consultations
Exercise and nutrition are both essential for good health, especially when we our bodies are tying to heal. The quality of the food we eat alone can be a major factor in our day-to-day health and energy and is equally important when considering the long-term health benefits. When it comes to exercise, a combination of stretching, strengthening, balance, stability, and cardiovascular exercise will also play a large role in your recovery. Certain muscles have a tendency to become weak and others to become tight. Identifying these and prescribing exercises to correct this imbalance will avoid undue stress on the joints, your nervous system and overall health. Referrals for more advanced and monitored programs will be provided for both if required.
