Northwest Calgary Chiropractors : Our Approach

As Northwest Calgary chiropractors we promote a natural approach to health, healing and the strategies of living well to produce an optimal quality of life. Chiropractic is utilized by millions of Canadians each year. Chiropractors help us recover from spinal and whole body injuries and setbacks as well as provide us with an effective and safe preventative strategy against the devastating effects of stress on our minds and bodies.

Science and research reveal that the body’s motion, flexibility, alignment and posture impact every function in the body. The loss of optimum motion and spinal posture can begin in childhood, and is accelerated as time goes on. Your spine directly affects your nervous system. An unhealthy spine can often produce pain and symptoms of ill health, and seriously reduce your vitality. Chiropractic care helps to prevent risk factors that contribute to suffering. In addition, chiropractic enhances your well-being and athletic performance.

By gently using specific techniques (adjustments), chiropractors enable you to restore motion and alignment in your spine. Many people notice improvement in symptoms of misalignment and impaired spinal health such as fewer headaches, less light-headedness, improved balance, less muscle tension, less neck or back pain as well as improved digestion, immune and reproductive function and other whole-body conditions (e.g. asthma, colic, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, insomnia, fatigue).

Our Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Chiropractic adjusting technique.

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»

SOT

Sacro Occipital Technique helps normalize the relationship between the pelvis and the head, using gravity to make the necessary correction. read more»

CBP®

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is focused on producing improved posture, balance, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves. read more»

Integrator Methods

This is an advanced tonal model based care that works to help restore spinal cord tone. The integrator uses light instrument adjustments to the vibrational energy in specific levels of the vertebral column, cranial suture joints, sacrum and coccygeal region.

Soft Tissue Therapies

Our doctors regularly include the use of various soft tissue therapies which lengthen shortened muscle fibres, relax spasming or contracted muscles, and reeducate the brain about appropriate tension to apply to the affected areas. These include techniques like myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), and muscle therapies like active release and doctor assisted stretching.

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let your doctor know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
