St. Albert, Edmonton Chiropractic Treatment

I am a primary health care provider. Therefore when you come to see me, I will either address your problem or find someone who can. As a chiropractor, I am a specialist in spinal and other musculoskeletal disorders. I am expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many musculoskeletal injuries that may occur - sometimes on the job, sometimes in a motor vehicle and sometimes in just living daily life. Many people suffer from pain unnecessarily. When I look at your spine/body, I look for the reason you are having the problem. I want to eliminate the reason so your body can properly heal. I treat all ages, from newborns to the elderly. I have had success with back pain, migraines and other headaches, neck pain and whiplash injuries, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand complaints, sciatica, knee, ankle and foot problems. In addition, childhood issues of constipation and gas pains, headaches, head tilt, joint pains, growing pains, poor posture and scoliosis (especially in youth) are assessed and addressed. The nerves that supply your body's functioning and vitality come from your spine, so when vertebrae move out of place and put pressure on those nerves, your symptoms can vary tremendously. For example, if the nerve that tells you that you have a full bladder or enough stomach acid is "pinched" and the signal is not getting to the brain, then you have a problem that we have helped time and again.

What to Expect

First Visit: The first visit takes approximately 60 minutes, which includes the consultation/case history and some orthopedic and neurological tests (if applicable). This is to ensure that it's safe and appropriate to provide you treatment. I will analyze your spine for areas of concern, and in most cases I will request x-rays which are taken here in Morinville and are unfortunately no longer covered by Alberta Health Care.

Subsequent Visits: The number of treatments necessary to heal is dependent on many factors, especially: length of injury duration, severity of misalignment, physical fitness, age, etc. When I have examined you and looked at your x-rays, I will know whether I can help you, how many treatments you will require and how much it will cost.

From there, what you do is up to you. Treatment usually consists of a series of adjustments that move the vertebrae toward their correct position. The procedure is generally painless unless you are in a lot of pain when you come in.

Sometimes your overall body alignment is negatively impacted by foot dysfunction and poor foot biomechanics. Examples of symptoms that show such dysfunction are general foot, ankle, knee, hip and low back pain. Plantar fasciitis, calluses, corns, crossed over and malformed toes, bunions, heel pain/spurs and low arches or flat feet are other issues noted and assessed. We perform foot exams to create orthotics, uniquely tailored for your feet, that combat these conditions.

How will I feel afterward?

After your first treatment you will often feel sore, like you worked out too much, but most people feel better quickly. Some people experience headaches or a 'bruised' feeling. This is considered normal but severe pain is not. Usually after you have been adjusted a few times, you won't experience negative post-adjustment reactions. This is because your bones will 'get used to' being in the right place. It's a little more complicated than that, however we can talk about it more in person.

Auto Accident Injuries

The first instinct for most people involved in an motor vehicle accident is to treat any form of discomfort with pain medications. Improperly treated or undiagnosed symptoms related to the neck and spine may linger however and eventually lead to long-term and chronic health problems.

Pinched Nerve

According to chiropractors, a "pinched nerve" is the result of a misalignment of the spine that creates nerve irritation causing severe soreness and pain in the back or neck with occasions of referred pain into the legs or arms.

Migraines and Headaches

Characterized as a dull ache or persistent pain that encompasses the head and typically surrounds the eyes, a tension headache will gradually increase in intensity and may become chronic lasting up to 15 days or more per month. Migraines are typically worse than tension or cervical spine headaches. They are characterized by visual or auditory changes, throbbing head and the need to decrease stimulation as soon as possible (e.g. darkness and quiet).

Whiplash

Chronic pain and other problems related to whiplash injury can make the simplest of tasks difficult to manage and significantly affect your daily functioning. While various pain medications may provide some initial relief, merely masking the symptoms of whiplash will eventually lead to more serious physical problems.
