Some people assume that Chiropractors only help people having lower back pain or neck pain, but many people are discovering that Chiropractic services can have many more amazing benefits. Continue reading more to learn about how taking care of your spine and nerve system can help you live better!

“Better Back = Better Health”

Lower back pain treatment in Mississauga?

Just like a better back can lead to better health – Lower back pain or lower back problems can lead to worsening health.  That’s why it is important to address any underlying causes of your back pain now! Our Mississauga Chiropractors would love to help you find out what’s wrong and give you a plan to get back to your naturally healthy self!

Lower back pain treatment may be necessary to get you working well again.  The testing that our Chiropractors do will allow them to determine if your case is a Chiropractic case, or if other treatments are necessary.  Recent studies show us that 90% of chronic low back pain is from the joints in the spine (discs, facet joints, or sacroiliac joints).    These joints can herniate, bulge, compress, stretch, slip, stiffen up, get stuck, and more.  Fortunately, our Chiropractic services are specifically designed to address these cases and is often all that is needed to get your body functioning towards your best again.

“life is different now that I feel better”

Approximately a year ago, a gentleman in his 60’s came to seek care at my office for a very persistent lower back problem that affected his hip and leg. It had interfered with most activities in his life one of which was his passion…cricket.

After a few months of chiropractic care he returned to the game and to his surprise was able to play when he thought his days of playing his beloved game were over.

In addition he was able to join his teammates to go play in a tournament in Argentina which was a thrill of a lifetime for him!
He admits that without chiropractic care none of that would’ve been possible for him.

Chiropractic care can change your life if you’re living with pain…

Neck pain treatment in Mississauga?

What a pain in the neck!  Just like the back, the neck is very important.  When your neck is hurting, it can greatly impact every aspect of your life.  That’s why it is important to visit our Mississauga Chiropractic clinic now!

The neck pain can generate from many different structures (joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerves) and can refer or radiate pain into your head, face, arm, fingers, shoulders, back, and chest!  These structures can twist, stretch, herniate, compress, slip, bulge, become stuck, click, and more. This can be caused by whiplash injuries, bad postures, or even just sleeping wrong.  Some of these neck problems develop over months or years before the problem becomes so severe that they can’t ignore it any longer.  Seek treatment for your neck pain earlier in order to get the quickest response to care!

Proper alignment and positioning of the neck is of great importance while healing from neck injuries and neck pain.  The misalignment in of your neck bones are referred to as subluxations.  Read below to learn more about subluxations and how they can impact your life.  Fortunately, Chiropractors are specially trained to identify the injured structures in the neck, properly adjust them, and to encourage you towards proper postures.  All of this greatly helps your neck pain.

 

What to Expect During Your First Chiropractic Visit

You are probably wondering what happens during your first Chiropractic visit at our office in Mississauga. The following page will help you feel at ease during your first few Chiropractic appointments.

During the first visit, one of our Chiropractors will complete a thorough exam that typically includes:
• Patient History
• Physical Exam
• Possible specialty tests such as X-rays, thermography, surface EMG

Patient History
Prior to your initial consultation, you will be asked to fill out forms that provide the chiropractor with some background information on your symptoms, conditions and lifestyle. Some of the questions we ask in our office are:

• Is this a wellness check-up or do you have a specific concern?
• What is your major complaint? Please describe.
• Is the condition interfering with work, sleep and/or hobbies?
(If you would like, you can print and fill out the patient intake form before coming to the office)

You may also be asked to provide family medical history, any pre-existing medical conditions, injuries etc. When applicable, bring any copies of previous tests (for example, MRI or X-rays) with you.

Physical Examination
The next step is a physical examination your Chiropractor will perform to evaluate your condition and develop a working diagnosis. Tests performed in this examination will assess:
• Ranges of motion of your neck and back
• Muscle tone and strength
• Neurological integrity along your spine
Posture

In cases where X-rays are required, they are performed in our office after the examination.

Our team is then happy to schedule your second visit to our office, your report of findings.

 Chiropractic Report of Findings

Once you have completed your initial Chiropractic exam, you will be scheduled for your report of findings visit. These appointments are most often scheduled during the evening so you can bring family members along. The Chiropractor will go over Chiropractic care with you. Once you have a greater understanding of Chiropractic, the doctor will go over your diagnosis with you. This diagnosis is a combination of your health history, the examination results, and your X-rays if applicable. The Chiropractor will then go over:
• The diagnosed condition (if applicable)
• The treatment plan for you care
• The anticipated length of care

If your Chiropractor determines that your condition would be more appropriately treated by another health care professional, they will make the proper referral. You may also receive instructions on certain activities or procedures to conduct at home. This may include ice or heat application, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises and/or stretches.

The doctors and staff at Erin Mills Optimum Health in Mississauga are here to help.  At anytime during your care if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!


What are subluxations?

When people meet our Chiropractors looking for treatment, they sometimes say that they are suffering with or have a:

A subluxation in your spine can create those things … and more!

Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that can interfere with the function of the spine as well as the communication of the nerve system through the spine.  Subluxations are a main cause of back pain, neck pain, and head pains.  However, subluxations are not always painful and can weaken your body, stress organ systems (such as digestion, elimination, respiratory), lower resistance to disease and affect posture, brain function, and overall health. Vertebral subluxations can occur at any age. In fact, your first subluxation could be trauma from a difficult childbirth or from a childhood fall.  As you grow you could experience other injuries, whiplashes, bad posture and stress.  Many of these uncorrected subluxations may contribute to ill health later in life.

Our natural health clinic in Mississauga has Chiropractors who are excellent at locating and correcting subluxations to help you function better!


Chiropractic impacts more than just back pain – It moves you towards your naturally healthy self.

 

Back pain can be:

  • disabling
  • irritating
  • annoying
  • painful
  • debilitating
  • hurting
  • stabbing
  • cramping
  • exhausting
  • fatiguing
  • frustrating

But back pain is only a part of the back problem.  Realize that your back bones and muscles protect the spinal cord, which is the wires that leave your brain!  That is why back problems can have such a large impact on not only how you feel, but how your entire body is functioning!  And that is why the Chiropractic services we offer in Mississauga can have such a large impact on improving your back pain, but also help your body to function like your naturally healthy self again.

Getting your focus towards function and healing is part of the BIG IDEA of Chiropractic, but there is more! Check out the video below and ask us more to learn more about the Big Idea of Chiropractic.

A big part of how Chiropractic care can help you become your naturally healthy self has to do with your brain (the central nervous system).  Your brain is the most important part of your body!  It controls and coordinates all aspects of your body, including your muscles, movements, organs, immune system, and the expression of your genes. The brain connects to the body through nerves which leave from the ‘top’ (skull) and head ‘down’ (through the spinal cord towards your lower back) to your body. The spine protects this cord but can interfere with the messages travelling from the “top-down” impacting your brains ability to communicate its messages.  When this biological communication system is interfered with, your body’s ability to be naturally healthy is greatly reduced.   Chiropractors focus on this problem in order to help you get back to your naturally healthy self.

What is the Big Idea when it comes to Chiropractic?



Techniques utilized by our Chiropractors at Erin Mills Optimum Health

Our Chiropractors correct subluxations with spinal adjustments. Spinal adjustments are gentle procedures used to realign the bones in your back and free your body from nerve interference. At Erin Mills Optimum Health our Chiropractors utilize a variety of techniques. Along with the traditional hands-on Technique we also offer the Activator Method Technique.

Manual Adjustments in Mississauga

A traditional hands-on Chiropractic Technique which utilizes a Chiropractor’s hands and body to adjust your back, spine, and nerve system.  Our Chiropractors in Mississauga are highly trained at manual adjustments.  These manual adjustments can be made at different segments of the spine to specifically adjust the back bones that are involved.  The side posture position is regularly used to adjust the low back, pelvis, and sacroiliac joints.  The thoracic spine is regularly adjusted while lying both back down and back up depending on the clinical presentation and vertebral subluxation. The neck can also be manually adjusted in a face down and/or a face up position.  The amount of force required to adjust the spine is actually quite minimal, as what is required is proper positioning of the spinal vertebrae by the chiropractor.  Because of this, this method of adjusting the spine can be done on people of all ages and sizes.

Activator Methods Technique in Mississauga

Most new patients to our Chiropractic clinic assume that all adjusting, or Chiropractic maneuvers, are done with the hands and requires a lot of strength – this is not so. Continuously developed from the 1960’s, Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique utilizes a handheld instrument designed to have extremely-low-force and extremely-high-velocity in order to specifically adjust the back, spine, and nerve system.  This means that it can be very gentle while still being effective!  This is one of the most highly researched and utilized chiropractic techniques in the world.  “Activator,” as it is frequently called, combines a leg length analysis with specific adjusting using the activator instrument, which adds to the clinical evaluation and adjustment of the patients’ spine, biomechanics, and neurology.  This testing is done when you are lying back up.  The Activator technique is designed to be used for people of all different ages and sizes – from newborns and the elderly to football players.


Natural Health and Chiropractic

For your body to work at its fullest, for your resistance to disease to be high and for you to have the energy and strength to heal yourself fully and naturally, bring in your spine for a Chiropractic spinal check up. It’s a great thing for everyone to do – young and old.

 “The beauty about Chiropractic is the fact that it works with natural means. It puts nothing new into the body, nor does it take away any natural gland or organ. Chiropractic simply releases life forces within the body, sets free ribulets of energy over nerves, and lets nature do her work in a normal matter.” B.J. Palmer – Developer of Chiropractic


Vertebral Subluxation and Chiropractic

Below is an excerpt from an office brochure on Chiropractic from Fred H. Barge, D.C., Ph.C. titled “Healing Takes Time | Be A Patient Patient.” It has a great explanation of what a vertebral subluxation is, how it can affect your health, and how a Chiropractor can adjust it to help the body heal:

“Thirty one pair of nerves emit from the spine, they communicate with every organ and tissue in the human body. When a vertebrae is out of line for a period of time, distortion of it’d supporting structure occurs. The tendons, ligaments, discs, muscles, all must adapt to the malposition.  Inflammation sets into the tissues of the vertebral joints, chemical products of inflammation, swollen tissues and bony malposition, all contribute to nerve interference.Now, if the vertebral joints of the spine were a ball and socket joints, they would wither be located correctly or dislocated. For instance, your shoulder is a ball and socket type joint, but the joints of the spine are sliding articulations. If a vertebral joint dislocates,  the results are disastrous, paralysis can ensue. Fortunately, this does not happen without severe trauma. What commonly happens is that these joints subluxate, become misaligned. When a Chiropractor adjusts the joint, it often takes repeated adjustments to get the joint to assume a better position. Once this is achieved, the joint must stabilize, the inflammation subside, and the nerve must heal before normal nerve supply is restored. Once the nerve supply is normal, then the tissue served by this nerve must heal and return to normal function before symptoms begin to disappear.After the adjustment, the vertebral joint is not stable and must be checked to see if it needs another adjustment. The nerves and tissues are still vulnerable and weak and may elicit some re-occurring symptoms and occasional bouts of the original problem. Healing takes time and health usually returns in cycles; in other words, it has its ups and downs. A return to complete normal function and strength sometimes takes months and in severe cases, years. The miracle of our body took nine months of creation in the womb and another 18 years to become fully grown. “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and “Healing Takes Time.””

For those patients who are curious, there are even best practices guidelines regarding Subluxation Chiropractic Practice.  This can be found on the Council on Chiropractic Practice website.
