Chiropractic today is one of the largest primary care health professionals in Canada with over 6,000 practicing Chiropractors. Approximately four and a half million Canadians use the services of a Chiropractor each year.
Natural, non-invasive approach to health care
Chiropractors practice a drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. In particular, Chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints, and their effect on the nervous system. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercise, to utilize other non-invasive therapies, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
Chiropractors are regulated, primary care health providers.
