What We Treat
Chiropractors are known for the treatment of spine-related disorders such as low back pain, neck pain and headaches. At PHYSELITE, we are also experts in sport-related pain and injuries. We are committed to determining the cause of your pain by assessing you as a person and athlete, not just an injury. At PHYSELITE, we regard everyone as an athlete, differing only in their sport of choice. Whether it is hockey, soccer or gardening on the weekend, we want to make sure your body is prepared for the activity you choose!
How We Treat
We will always look at the main area of complaint to determine which structures are causing your pain. The next step is to look at areas away from your pain to determine how other parts of your body may be leading to unnecessary stress or abnormal movement causing pain where you feel it. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain but more importantly, to address all other contributing factors that led you to where you are today. We can do this by improving how the joints move, how the muscles function and how strong the muscles are. This is how we transition you from rehabilitation (exercises you do when you are in pain) to performance training (exercises you do when you want to get strong and stay out of pain).
What You Can Expect
When you see a chiropractor at PHYSELITE for your initial assessment, you can expect:
- A thorough discussion about your pain or injury
- An examination of your area of pain
- An examination of areas surrounding your pain
- Discussion about your goals
- A diagnosis and recommended plan of management
- Collaboration with other practitioners (our physiotherapists, massage therapists and strength coaches)
- Evidence-based care
Remember that everyone is different! Your recommended plan of management will be based on findings of the assessment. Chiropractic treatments may include:
- Joint manipulation or mobilization
- Soft tissue therapy
At PHYSELITE, we know that the most lasting change is the work you do yourself. You can expect to be sent home with exercises and spend time with our awesome strength and conditioning staff during your visits.
