What Do Chiropractors Do?

Chiropractors are specially trained to locate and correct misalignments in the spine that can create stress on the nerve system. The misalignments causing nerve stress are referred to as vertebral subluxations.

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. You can learn about your first chiropractic visit here, or continue reading more below 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

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 chiropractor at Erin Mills Optimum Health saw a gentleman in his 60’s who came to seek care 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. Chiropractors can also address some of the injuries and pain points listed here.


Neck Pain Treatment

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 if you’re experiencing neck pain.

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.

Chiropractic Can Improve Athletic Performance

A spine that’s moving better and aligned will perform, recover, and feel much better! That is why many athletes use Chiropractic to help them perform, recover, and train. Our Chiropractors have competed in many sports throughout their lives and have worked with countless athletes as their sports chiropractor.

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

Chiropractic Moves You Towards Your Naturally Healthy Self – Back Pain Can Be:

  • Disabling – It always surprises patients how disabling back pain can be. The spine is a very important part of the body and when it is not functioning well and hurting, everything is difficult!
  • Irritating – Irritation is very common with back pain while you are healing. With the proper help it does get better, but one step at a time like all processes.
  • Annoying – Back pain is very annoying. The bad days do get better with the proper care.
  • Painful – Back pain is definitely painful!
  • Debilitating – Back pain can feel debilitating or weakening. The spine is the foundation for many movements of the body, and if it is in trouble the whole body is very weak. The back also protects the nerves and spinal cord which supply muscles with the impulse to fire. If those nerves are bothered, the power is lost from that muscle area.
  • Hurting – Back pain definitely hurts. The pain often starts off dull but builds up until you can’t ignore it hurting any longer. Seek help as early as possible.
  • Stabbing – Stabbing pain is definitely the type of pain to avoid. The body is trying to tell you not to do that movement. Examine why the stabbing pain is occuring.
  • Cramping – Cramping pain in the back is common and the underlying cause needs to be determined.
  • Exhausting – Pain in the back is exhausting. Whether from the healing experience, pain, or from the lack of sleep.
  • Fatiguing – Fatigue is a common thing we see in patients who are having pain. It does improve once the injury is addressed correctly.
  • Frustrating – Every injury takes time can heal and can be very frustrating at times.

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?



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.
