DID YOU KNOW?

Chiropractic is Canada’s 3rd largest primary contact health care profession (after medicine and dentistry), and is Canada’s largest drugless health profession.  There is no use of prescription drugs or surgery.

 

Chiropractors are doctors.  Chiropractic is one of five professions, within the Province of Ontario, authorized to perform and communicate a diagnosis, and use the title ‘Doctor’.

 

Chiropractors require a minimum of seven years of university level education, including four or five years of intensive training at a chiropractic educational institution.  Chiropractors are required to write both national and provincial board examinations for licensure.

 

There are Chiropractic Acts in all 10 provinces and Yukon Territory.  This legislation recognizes chiropractic as a primary contact self-regulating health profession.

 

Chiropractic pioneered, and continues to offer a conservative, non-invasive, preventive, and whole body approach to health.

 

Chiropractors use highly-specialized hands-on healing techniques which assist your body to heal itself naturally.  These adjustments help return your spine to optimum health by restoring health and maintaining nerve and joint function.

 

Each year in Canada chiropractic doctors provide at least 30 million treatments.  Every day in Canada over 150,000 people, or 12.5% of the population visit their chiropractor.

 

Chiropractic adjustments are amongst the safest of all health interventions, and are safer than over the counter drugs, such as ASA tablets (aspirin).

 

Studies have shown that chiropractic management of low back pain is superior in terms of effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, safety, and patient satisfaction.
