Patient comfort is at the forefront of our care. Many of the newest gentle techniques are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. At Chiropractic on Eagle in Newmarket, we have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients attain relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine.
All of the gentle techniques we use are corrective in nature and focus on getting to the cause of your problems, not merely masking your symptoms. We use state-of-the-art ‘drop-piece’ tables that allow us to adjust without aggressive techniques.
Here are the gentle techniques we use:
This is a very specific, but gentle technique. Individual cushions or “drop pieces” located along the surface of our table support each area of your spine until a gentle thrust is delivered. Then, each drop piece gently gives way, thus reducing the amount of energy needed to move a specific spinal segment. This is a very effective technique to address specific spinal concerns and allows for a very gentle adjustment.
Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP)
Chiropractic BioPhysics is a highly advanced, scientific, and proven chiropractic technique which corrects and restores your spine back into alignment. Chiropractic Biophysics combines biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to identify the causes of your pain, discomfort, loss of mobility, and altered health. That means your diagnosis and treatment will be based on sound scientific and chiropractic principles.
CBP chiropractors start with a scientifically based examination of your posture, spinal alignment, and function – often involving x-rays as a way to pinpoint the root cause of your spinal misalignment. Once the source is identified, we will create a carefully planned series of gentle adjustments, exercises, and spinal remodelling programs to put you on a pain-free road to better health.
Impulse Adjusting Tool
Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to chiropractors to assist them in delivering chiropractic adjustments. At Chiropractic on Eagle, we use this patented and FDA registered device, which was specifically created to deliver gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the joints of the spine and extremities to relieve pain and restore function. Impulse adjustments are high-tech. There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for only the right areas by administering gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages.
We use one of the most popular “low-force” gentle techniques in the world, The Activator Method. This device is a handheld spring-loaded tool that delivers a consistent low-force, high-speed thrust. The Activator device is many times faster than adjustments delivered by hand, so the body rarely tightens to resist the adjustment, which is more comfortable for you, the patient.
This is the most commonly used adjustment technique by chiropractors. Diversified is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust and is considered the most generic chiropractic adjustive technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement of spine and joint dysfunction.
Corrective Traction/Exercises/Lifestyle advice
Very often a patient will be required to take an active role in their health in order to ensure the most efficient and lasting recovery. We pride ourselves on providing the very best recommendations required to facilitate your healing. Some advice may involve nutritional support, at home spinal rehab exercises or traction, avoiding a certain sleeping posture, or simply increasing your water intake. Rest assured, we are going to provide EVERYTHING you need to recover, even some things you may not want to hear – that is how much we care about you!
Simply put, our goal is to use the most gentle, corrective techniques available to get you back to doing the things you enjoy most. We understand that you are here not only because of your symptoms, but more importantly, what your symptoms are preventing you from enjoying in life.
