More than 4 million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year

Back pain, neck pain and headaches are the most common reasons why Canadians first consult a chiropractor. Many patients choose to continue chiropractic care after their symptoms have disappeared because they can feel that it helps their body function better, and they feel healthier.

 

Why is spinal health important?

The body’s information highway – your nervous system – is protected by the spine. The nervous system travels out between the vertebrae or joints of the spine to carry messages from the brain to every part of your body. Stress and strain on the vertebrae can put pressure on the nerves in the affected area. That is why a problem with your spine can have far-reaching effects, causing symptoms that you would never think of as coming from your spine

Chiropractic, is safe effective health care for the entire family.
