If you’re looking for a chiropractor in Peterborough, the Trent Health in Motion team is thrilled to offer our services. Chiropractic care is an evidence-based, non-invasive, and hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. We are proud to offer it as part of our core services.
Chiropractors primarily use their hands in providing diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care for disorders and conditions related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system, and joints. Almost 2.7 million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care every year to help them live healthy and active lives.
What Makes Chiropractic Care at Trent Health In Motion Different?
Here are some of the top reasons why Trent Health in Motion should be your go-to Peterborough chiropractor:
- Longer appointment times allow for better communication with your chiropractor (as opposed to short appointments that charge a relatively higher cost while allowing less time with the actual chiropractor)
- Comprehensive treatment plans that are structured to achieve your goals (as opposed to year-long commitments or ‘packages’ with no clear plan of action)
- Exercise therapy services with optional spine adjustments and acupuncture (as opposed to a manip-and-you’re-out approach)
- A collaborative healthcare team that work together to help you achieve the results you deserve (as opposed to you having to go through multiple clinics and individual providers to get different services)
What to Expect
Our chiropractor offers a combination of different treatments, depending on the individual patient’s needs.
After taking the patient’s history, performing an examination, and establishing a diagnosis, our chiropractor will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment plan by recommending therapeutic exercises, performing manual therapies, and providing dietary and lifestyle counselling.
Treatment plans are specifically designed around the unique needs of every individual, along with any injuries or conditions that hinder them from easily achieving their goals. Every visit with us will have an emphasis on educating the patient about which of their tissues are involved, movements that may be counterproductive, and what exercises or other treatments can help heal and correct such issues.
There are several treatment options available, and we’ll help you choose the best ones depending on your condition, comfort level, and preferences.
Understanding the treatment options available:
Adjustments can include joint manipulation and mobilization of restricted and sometimes painful joints of the feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, spine, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and jaw. Our chiropractor at Trent Health in Motion practices diversified chiropractic techniques that provide relief in several ways, to target the patient’s needs and comfort.
Acupuncture decreases pain by stimulating nerves and increasing the production of the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals through the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Acupuncture is also believed to encourage local tissue changes to stimulate healing and deactivate trigger points in the muscles.
The key to improving movement, posture, wellness, and performance is gaining an understanding of why each patient is having issues. Educating each patient on their specific condition, why it’s happening, and how to limit recurrence is the most important aspect of a thorough and effective treatment plan.
The best evidence suggests that chiropractic care combined with therapeutic exercises yields better patient outcomes. Your chiropractor will provide you with a personalized therapeutic exercise program geared towards your individual goals.
Chiropractors use both hands-on and instrument-assisted muscle release techniques to relax tight sore muscles and fascia, as well as to improve local blood flow to an injured area.
Our Spinal Stenosis Treatment Program includes a combination of manual therapy, special exercises, instruction on body-repositioning techniques and self management strategies which have been shown to be effective for lumbar spinal stenosis. To learn more, CLICK HERE.
