HealthWorks has added a Chiropractic Clinic for customers requiring this beneficial treatment. Your chiropractor can treat you for: injury rehabilitation and prevention, post surgical recovery, increasing mobility, reducing pain levels and restoring proper function to the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems of the body.
At our HealthWorks Regina, we are interested in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, and associated neurological systems. You will receive total care at our chiropractor clinic, our team is extensively educated and can recommend a course of treatment to help relieve pain and improve function without surgery or pharmaceuticals, such as manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, exercise, education, modalities (i.e. ultrasound or electrotherapy) and rehabilitation.
Specific training in spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) allows your chiropractor to provide adjustments using highly-skilled and precise movements to the vertebrae of your spine. They will correct your joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function. (This motion can be accompanied by an audible pop. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape from the joint capsule causing the popping noise, similar to cracking your knuckles.)
Your chiropractor is also trained to provide nutritional counselling, as well as recommend injury prevention strategies.
Book an appointment for your treatment at HealthWorks Regina or call 306-525-0007. Direct billing for chiropractic treatment is available to most insurance companies.
We also have a Regina Avenue location. Visit our Regina Chiropractic Clinic for more information.
Research evidence and scientific studies have found chiropractic adjustments to be a very effective and safe treatment for headaches, neck pain, low back pain and many other conditions associated with the spine. As well, chiropractic care has been shown to be effective for, shoulder, knee, elbow, leg and foot pain related problems. They provide care and support by reducing pain and disability and restoring function.
From healthcare providers to athletes to stay at home parents, architects to plumbers, seniors to youth, HealthWorks Regina chiropractic therapists can help improve your overall health. People often see a Chiropractor for spine, joint, back or neck problems, while others may be wanting relief from headaches and the pain associated with them. Many find that regular treatment from their chiropractor helps to keep their bodies in top condition to compete sports, perform at work and many other activities.
A chiropractor is a licensed doctor and you should expect the following during your chiropractic treatment:
The treatment plan is different for every patient, depending on your lifestyle, health concerns, prior injuries, age, and so on. Some treatment plans have people return several times, while other require more frequent or ongoing care. Some patients only see their chiropractor a few times when their condition flares up and they are in pain. Other patients prefer regular treatment for preventative care and wellness. Whichever care that you find works best for you, the choice is always yours for how long or how much you wish to benefit from chiropractic treatment.
Not at all. Each patient will receive a treatment that is targeted to their specific condition based on the diagnosis done by your HealthWorks Regina chiropractor. The treatment will vary depending on each persons’ unique situation and may also include modalities such as ultrasound, taping, electrotherapies or the prescription of bracing or orthotics.
Your HealthWorks Regina chiropractor, like your family doctor or dentist, is a primary contact provider. No referral is needed to see a chiropractor. Doctors of Chiropractic today train and study at the university level for at minimum of eight years. Like other licensed healthcare providers, such as medical or dental students, chiropractors complete an undergraduate degree before they can apply to a chiropractic college. They complete a minimum of 4,600 hours of academic study including classroom instruction, clinical science and internship. During their intense training, chiropractors will have become proficient in:
Yes, chiropractic adjustments are very safe. Over the last 10 years, much research has looked at the incidence of neck manipulation and vascular incidents, like stroke. There are cases of stroke associated with visits to chiropractors and medical doctors reported. Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic treatment and the occurrence of stroke, rather, recent studies indicate that patients may be consulting health care providers (medical doctors and chiropractors) when they are in the early stages of a stroke. The possibility of such injuries occurring in association with a cervical adjustment is extremely remote.
As with many treatments, including massage physiotherapy or even exercise, patients sometimes experience a brief aggravation of their symptoms. Reports of muscle and ligament strains or sprains as a result of manual therapy techniques are rare. Cases of disc injuries identified following cervical and lumbar spinal adjustments are also rare, although no scientific evidence has determined such injuries are caused, or may be caused, by spinal adjustments or other chiropractic treatments.
There are infrequent reported cases of burns or skin irritation in association with the use of some types of hot packs or physical therapy treatments offered by some chiropractic doctors.
As soon as possible, you should schedule an appointment with your chiropractor to diagnose, assess and treat any injuries. As with all injuries, if you wait too long to receive care, it may take more treatment and longer for your recovery to occur.
