Doctors of Chiropractic are health specialists that specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal diseases, which frequently manifest as pain. Chiropractors are licensed primary health care providers with superior diagnostic abilities. They are also educated to offer therapeutic and rehabilitative activities as well as nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling.

Chiropractors are taught to view the body as a functionally integrated system that can become symptomatic (painful) when any of the parts malfunction. They can address these deficits using a variety of physical therapies. Our chiropractors at Joint Reaction place a major focus on manual treatments such as joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue therapy, and motor control retraining.
Chiropractors may utilize a mix of manual therapy, modality usage (e.g., acupuncture, ultrasound, etc.), and rehabilitative and corrective exercises in a particular and customized treatment plan adapted to the patient’s goals. Joint manipulation, joint mobilization, and soft tissue treatment are examples of manual therapy procedures.
Your chiropractor at Joint Reaction Health Center will do an initial assessment to establish the best treatment strategy for you. This is accomplished by a comprehensive history and physical examination, as well as the utilization of further imaging, such as a referral for an x-ray, diagnostic ultrasonography, or MRI if necessary.
Acupuncture is an ancient method of Chinese medicine in which solid filiform acupuncture needles are inserted into the skin at certain places on the body to have a therapeutic effect. There is no drug injection. Acupuncture’s positive benefits are solely due to the needles.
Acupuncture is used to promote natural healing, boost mood and vitality, lessen or alleviate pain, and enhance the function of damaged body parts. It is both safe and effective, and it is frequently utilized as a viable alternative to drugs or even surgery. Acupuncture is frequently used to provide relief when regular medical therapy has failed or is not desired.
Our staff at Joint Reaction Health Center are experienced in the art of acupuncture, which may be included into your entire treatment plan to ensure that you achieve your ultimate objective of wellness, health, and maximum functioning. Unlike some other clinics, this approach is included in your regular physiotherapy session at no extra cost if the therapist believes it would help you achieve optimal health.
An adjustment is a manual method in which your chiropractor applies a very fast push into a region of the body with restricted joint mobility in order to promote joint movement and, eventually, greater range of motion and pain levels. Finally, an adjustment aims to restore correct joint mobility so that you can move and feel better! In a different context, an adjustment is synonymous with joint manipulation.
Chiropratic Therapy is not covered by OHIP, although it is covered by practically all extended health care plans.
You do not need a doctor’s referral to see a Chiropraticor. However, if you have an extended health care plan, your insurer may demand a doctor’s reference before paying for Chiropratic Therapy sessions. This is why you should seek a recommendation before submitting your claim for reimbursement.
You should expect your initial Chiropratic Therapy sessions examination and treatment to last around an hour, and future appointments to last 30 minutes. Treatment times, however, vary.
