  • What is Chiropractic?
    Chiropractic in literal definition means “Done with hands.” It is the practice of relieving symptoms in different body parts using techniques and tools such as manual therapy, exercise, massage, adjustments, heat, and more. Roughly 4.7 million Canadians visit a chiropractor each year.
  • How do Chiropractic treatments work and are they safe?
    Continual research is being performed and we are further discovering how chiropractic works. Current understanding shows that chiropractic treatments provide relief by disrupting the pain signal from our body to the brain. Relief in symptoms, paired with an active lifestyle, is the best recipe for longevity. Treatments are painless when performed by a trained doctor and are widely reputed as being low-risk and safe compared to other interventions.
  • What conditions can Chiropractors treat?
    Despite chiropractors being most known for treating headaches, neck pain, low back pain, chiropractors also treat shoulder pain, whiplash, migraines, postural issues, sciatica, and many more.
  • What should I expect from my first visit?
    Patients should expect a quick questionnaire, hands on examination by the doctor, and receive corrections on the first visit. The first visit will take approximately 30 mins while follow ups take approximately 15 mins.
  • What is the popping sound during an adjustment?
    During an adjustment, air pockets in joints release pressure, just like when you open a new jar or can of soda. It is completely normal, harmless, and painless when performed by a licensed chiropractor.
  • How long do I need to see a chiropractor?
    Care plans are individualized and vary from patient to patient depending on their needs and lifestyle. After recovery, many patients choose to enter regular maintenance care, much like brushing your teeth, to maintain their spinal hygiene.
  • Do you take extended health benefits?
    We provide printed or emailed receipts for treatments that can be submitted to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
  • What are custom orthotics?
    Custom orthotics are personalized shoe inserts or arch supports that are designed to support the alignment, biomechanics, and shock absorption of your feet. They are created tailored to your feet by scanning the contours of your feet.
  • What do orthotics do?
    Custom orthotics differ from off the shelf inserts. They are medically prescribed devices that correct biomechanics of the feet, reduce pain, and help alleviate conditions such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, and more.
  • How much do custom orthotics cost?
    The most current pricing for custom orthotics and an assessment can be found in our appointment booking link.
  • How long do custom orthotics last?
    High quality orthotics from a reputable provider can easily last 3-4 years, although we recommend getting re-evaluated every 1-2 years, similar to getting our teeth or eye checked. Our orthotics are designed to withstand everyday wear and tear and will only result in reduced support over a long time.
  • Are custom orthotics covered by extended health benefit insurances?
    Most major insurance providers cover the cost of custom orthotics. The amount of coverage and requirements vary by provider and plan. It is important to understand your coverage and requirement when considering custom orthotics.
