WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC:
Doctor of Chiropractic (or chiropractors) are primary contact health professionals qualified to provide hands-on, effective conservative treatment to help manage neuromusculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain and headaches.
PEI`s chiropractors are spine, muscle, and nervous system expert trained to assess, diagnose, and treat disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractors often use a combination of manipulation and mobilizations of the joints, soft tissue therapy, modalities, rehabilitation, and lifestyle counselling determined by the patient’s goals and needs to alleviate symptoms, improve quality of life, and promote overall health.
HOW WE HELP:
