What is Chiropractic Therapy?

Chiropractors are manual therapists who provide diagnosis, treatment, and preventative care for conditions of the spine and musculoskeletal system. Throughout this process chiropractors use the best available evidence and clinical expertise to address the patient’s presentation.

Your relationship with your chiropractor will be a therapeutic alliance. Together you will determine the most appropriate treatments for your condition. You can expect your chiropractor to use a variety of hands-on techniques to promote clinical outcomes in your joints and soft tissues. To reinforce your treatment chiropractors provide corrective exercises to equip you with a home exercise program. In addition, chiropractors employ modalities such as Acupuncture and Shockwave to improve your outcomes.

How Can A Calgary Chiropractor at Market Mall Help Me?

You may benefit from chiropractic treatment if you suffer from any of the following issues​.

Neck Pain

Whether just waking up and noticing immediately that something isn’t right with your neck because you can’t turn it all the way, or if you are still experiencing lingering effects from an accident or injury, a chiropractor can probably help. They will examine your neck muscles and joints and give you an idea of what’s wrong and what they can do to remedy it.

Whiplash

A serious accident that causes your neck and head to jolt forward can cause long term pain and discomfort. Many chiropractors specialize in helping repair the underlying spinal column damage from whiplash. This sort of treatment, coupled with exercises, can eventually restore your neck muscles to full working order.

Headaches & Migraines

It continually surprises people to hear this, but headaches are often caused by out-of-alignment muscles and joints in the neck. These are called cervicogenic headaches. Another kind of headache – tension headaches – result from certain habits that you often do have control of.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain can be caused by isolated events like lifting a heavy object with the wrong technique. It can also be caused by repetitive motion or just simple overwork from a demanding job. And office workers can suffer from low back pain from sitting too long, especially with unhealthy posture.

Jaw Pain

If your jaw hurts or clicks when you open your mouth or chew, you might have a condition called TMJ – temporomandibular joint. Like many joint issues, TMJ is caused by worn down discs and even problems with the joint itself. Chiropractors are well-suited to treat TMJ and similar forms of jaw pain.

Pregnancy Pain Complications

Especially in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, your changing body can experience a lot of aches and pains in new places, but especially in your low back and pelvis. Chiropractic care can help you manage this pain throughout the rest of your pregnancy and after your delivery, and your chiropractor can also teach you some exercises you can do on your own.

What’s the Difference Between A Chiropractor and Physiotherapist?

Traditionally, Chiropractors used the adjustment as their main treatment tool while Physiotherapists primarily used exercise therapies. However, over time Physiotherapists started to incorporate more hands-on techniques including the adjustment, acupuncture services, myofascial release technique, active release technique, therapeutic massage, deep tissue massage of the body for relaxation and Chiropractors started to include more exercise therapies, activator technique, craniosacral technique, chiropractic adjustments and muscle work. So sometimes the difference is hard to determine and it often boils down to the specific approach taken by your practitioner.

​At Market Mall Physiotherapy in Calgary North West, we recommend the combination of our services where you can achieve the best results through the members of our team, be in Physiotherapists, Chiropractors or Massage Therapists. You can decide which therapist to start with, and they will guide you through your custom treatment plan and recommend who to include on your team.

Who Is Chiropractic Care For?

Just about anyone can seek help from a chiropractor.

Older Adults

It’s not hard to understand that with age comes increased challenges with joint pain and range of motion. Effects from old injuries can show up, even decades later, that you didn’t realize had done permanent damage.

Anyone with Recent Injuries

Car accidents, falls, serious strains and other musculoskeletal injuries can cause damage to many body systems. Some of this damage can be repaired best with chiropractic care. You can’t fix a pinched nerve just with pain meds. You’ve got to ‘un-pinch’ it!

Workers of all Sorts

Whether you work in a physically demanding job like construction or contracting, or you sit all day in a chair, your posture and your back are taking a beating. Chiropractic care can help you prolong your healthy functions and let you keep doing your job and being ‘all there’ for your family.
