What Is Chiropractic?
Doctors of chiropractic diagnose, treat and help prevent musculoskeletal (bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, joints and connective tissues) conditions and disorders and the effect they have on the nervous system. They do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate. They also counsel patients regarding nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
Chiropractors in Calgary are primary health care practitioners, which means that a referral from your family doctor is not necessary for treatment. They complete at least seven years of accredited post-secondary education and participate in supervised clinical training during their last year of training. Whether it is a personal injury, motor vehicle accident claim, workplace injury, or you are interested in simply optimizing your spinal health, the chiropractors at Active Back to Health will come up with a personalized treatment plan to decrease your pain, increase your function, and maintain your health long-term.

What To Expect
At your first visit, the chiropractor will conduct a thorough history and physical examination to determine the cause of your chief complaint and whether or not chiropractic care is suitable to you. From there, individualized treatment plans typically consist of a combination of, but are not limited to, spinal mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise prescription, and education.
Our chiropractic doctors individually specialize in various adjunctive techniques, such as the use of cold laser therapy, gait analysis and orthotics, Graston, acupuncture, visceral manipulation, and BodyTalk therapy. Please refer to their biographies to find out more about each practitioner.
