If you’re unfamiliar with the term “chiropractic” or its importance, Dr. Gregory J. Bidinosti of Rockway Chiropractic Clinic in Kitchener treats us to an overview of chiropractic care in Ontario and how it can be of benefit to you.
Chiropractic is a “hands-on” non-invasive health care discipline that deals with the musculoskeletal system while providing benefits to other regions of the body. Reasons for chiropractic care can be extensive and include assistance with such conditions as:
• Back and neck pain
• Strains and sprains
• Headaches and migraines
• Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
• Work and sports-related injuries
• Limited range of motion in the back, neck, shoulders and limbs
• Overall health and well-being
Chiropractic care is often the principal method of treatment for conditions such as lower back pain. It is also used to provide symptomatic relief of a number of chronic (that is, continuing, persistent) conditions. As well, in cases where other medical treatments might be used for conditions of the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care is often employed to complement or support those treatments.
Chiropractors frequently use a combination of treatments specific to the needs of an individual patient. The chiropractor will typically proceed with a comprehensive treatment plan after taking a complete history and diagnosis of the patient. This treatment and management plan will often involve dietary and lifestyle counselling with recommended therapeutic exercises as well as other non-invasive therapies. Chiropractic treatments involve a skilled manual approach (meaning, by use of the hands) for the care of disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. These treatments deliver other extended benefits to the patient’s overall physical health.
Chiropractic is one of the largest primary care professions in Ontario. It is a regulated health profession that is formally recognized in all Canadian provinces, as well as in the United States. Roughly two million patients in Ontario rely on chiropractic care each year. Doctors of Chiropractic will have spent four years in an accredited chiropractic institution where they will have received over 4,200 hours of specialized clinical training. Chiropractic is just one of five classes of health care professions in Ontario where qualified and accredited professionals can use the designation “Doctor” along with the accompanying rights and obligations. The discipline is controlled by provincial statues and standards similar to those of other health care professions.
