Project Description

Chiropractic in Richmond Hill (Yonge & 16th)

Chiropractors assess conditions related to the spine, nervous system, and joints. They diagnose, prevent, and treat (primarily by adjustment) dysfunctions or disorders arising from the spine and joints.

  • Do I need A a referral to see a Chiropractor?

  • No, patient does not need a referral. Chiropractors are legislated as primary contact healthcare professionals in every province in Canada. This means that patients can consult them directly. However, some third party insurance carriers may require a referral from a family physician for insurance claim reimbursements.

  • Is chiropractic care covered by OHIP?

  • Chiropractic services are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).However, most of extended health care plans do cover a portion of Chiropractic services.

  • What is an adjustment

  • An adjustment is a highly-skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to the vertebrae of the spine or other joints of the body. Adjustment to the joint restores proper movement and improves function. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape causing a popping noise, similar to when you crack your knuckles. Depending on the nature of the problem, your chiropractor may also utilize joint mobilization, muscle release techniques, muscle stimulation and therapeutic exercises to relieve your pain and get you moving again.

  • Is Chiropractic treatment safe?

  • Chiropractor’s use drug-free, non-invasive therapy to restore motion to dysfunctional spinal or extremity joints, while treating the involved muscles and surrounding soft tissues.

  • Does chiropractic treatment usually require x-rays?

  • X-rays can play an important role in diagnosis and are taken only when a need has been determined after taking a patient’s case history and conducting a physical examination. Governments in every province have recognized the training and competence of chiropractors to take and interpret X-rays and have granted them this right.
