What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic treatment is NATURAL and NON-INVASIVE and works

by improving the function of your joints and muscles.  

 

Chiropractic treatment improves the function of your nervous system.

Your nervous system is responsible for most body functions.

Your nerves connect your brain to your body by way of the spinal column.  

When muscles, bones or discs press or rub on a nerve, PAIN will result.

Interference in nerve signals can cause numbness, weakness in parts of your body far away from your spine.  

 

Make sure you mention ALL SYMPTOMS to your chiropractor,

 they might be important in your diagnosis and treatment plan.

What Treatments Can I Receive?

Hands-On - Traditional Manual Adjustments


Spinal manipulation or adjusting the spine is a time proven approach to healing back pain, neck pain and other painful conditions throughout the body. Adjustments gently restore normal motion to what feel like “stuck” joints. Freeing the joints reduce strain on muscles that are trying to move the joint. Since the spine is so close to your spinal nerves, it also stimulates the nervous system to reduce pain. So a healthy, well functioning spine can benefit your entire body.




Hands-On - Soft Tissue Therapies


The spine does not exist on its own. Without muscles, we would not be able to move or even stand up! Chiropractic treatment of muscles is crucial to recovering from many strains and injuries. Techniques such as pressure point therapy, myofascial release and stretching may be used to treat you. Each person and condition is unique so your treatment will depend on the circumstances.




Home Care - Rehabilitative Exercises


Rehabilitative exercises will be recommeded by the Chiropractor as Home Care to support the treatment done in clinic. Rehabilitative exercises are often useful to complete the recovery process after an injury or repetitive strain. Simple exercises targeted to help improve your condition will be prescribed to support any specific weaknesses. After that, regular general exercise also helps in your recovery.




Technology Treatment - Impulse IQ Adjusting


Just as lasers have replaced scalpels in some surgeries, advanced technology has become available to Chiropractors to assist in delivering Chiropractic adjustments. The Impulse IQ adjusting instrument is controlled by a micro-computer housed within the device. This produces a controlled force that Chiropractors can use to treat different parts of the body. The computer-assist inside the Impulse IQ gives the Chiropractor feedback about how the problem area is responding in real-time, for a custom tailored treatment. As the adjustment is delivered by the Impulse instrument, the precise amount of spinal motion and its speed are determined by the micro-computer in the device. As the spine rebounds from each thrust, information is fed into the computer. The technology in the device then sets the speed of further thrusts to match how your spine is moving. When the adjustment is accomplished, the machine shuts off. Chiropractic adjustments with the Impulse adjusting instrument feel like a light tapping sensation on the area that is being treated. In most cases the treatment is painless and after the adjustment many patients feel improved mobility and relief from pain.




Technology Treatment - Spinal Decompression Therapy


You don’t have to suffer. Spinal Decompression Therapy is the perfect option for disc herniation, disc bulges, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, sciatica and for patients who cannot tolerate traditional Chiropractic care. Read in-depth details on our Spinal Decompression Therapy page.




Technology Treatment - Laser Therapy


Speed healing with light energy. We use the Bioflex Low Intensity Laser Therapy System. This laser has two effective uses, it speeds healing of acute injury and stimulates healing of lingering chronic conditions. Using the healing power of light energy to stimulate the body's cells, this technology is very effective and is used by professional sports teams. Now it is available to you too! Read in-depth details on our Laser Therapy page.




Technology Treatment - Custom Orthotics


Your feet are your foundation. Computerized Gait Scan Analysis is a computerized system for analyzing pressure patterns and weight distribution of the feet. This is an accurate and less subjective system which, when combined with in depth testing of the feet and ankles, pinpoints which patients would benefit from custom orthotics. Read in-depth details on our Orthotic page.




Pregnancy and Post-Partum Treatments


Pregnant and post-partum women benefit from chiropractic care. We have years of experience treating women through the challenges of pregnancy and receive referrals from midwives in Peel. We have experience with Webster Technique which is a chiropractic approach to encourage babies to turn into position for delivery.




Senior Care


We have years of experience treating seniors with extra gentle chiropractic treatment. Seniors who are able to continue to do the things that they enjoy tend to have better quality of life. Dr. Douglas Vlaskamp has been the on-site Chiropractor at Holland Christian Homes for over 15 years.
