What is Chiropractic Care?

At Shephard Health Centre, our chiropractic care works on the skeletal system – the bones and joints – to keep everything in line and functioning freely. It is a safe, natural and effective form of health care*. The goal of chiropractic care is to gradually restore the spine and joints to their natural position and motion, thus improving nervous system function, spinal function and overall health.

How is Chiropractic Care Performed?

A chiropractor will administer specific adjustments to areas in your spine that are “fixated” or out of alignment, thus inhibiting normal nervous and spinal function. Adjustment techniques vary from practitioner to practitioner. Some methods employ quick rapid thrusts while others are slower with constant pressure. All techniques are equally effective and may be employed depending on the circumstance. Years of training and clinical experience allow the Doctor of Chiropractic to determine the ideal method for you.
