Chiropractic was founded in 1895 and the growth over the last 125 years has been amazing.  Chiropractors have gone from being jailed for practicing medicine without a licence to treating over half of Albertans.  Chiropractors are integrated in health care teams treating Professional, Olympic and Amateur athletes’ world wide. 

 

Chiropractic is developed on three fundamental pillars, the ART, SCIENCE and PHILOSOPHY.  The Art speaks to the how we treat, the Science gives us the research to understand the body, and the Philosophy gives us the why we treat.  Within the profession, some practitioners are more focused on one pillar than another, which is why it is important for patients to do a little research to make sure that they select the chiropractor that best suits their wants and needs.  What works for one patient, might or might not work for another.  If a patient is happy with the care they are being provided, there is no need to make a change. If you are not happy, then you might want to look at other chiropractic options.

 

Now that you understand why it important to do some research into your health care providers, let us take a few moments of your time and explain the approach we have at WestHills Chiropractic that makes us unique and leads to patients getting an EXCEPTIONAL CHIROPRACTIC EXPERIENCE.

Chiropractic is focused on the function of the body.  When it isn’t doing what it should, it results in pain and limitations for patients.  We use a combination of manipulation, stretches and patient education to help patients
feel better, move better, live better.
Everyone is different and therefore they need to have their condition fully evaluated so that a proper treatment plan can be developed for that specific person (Patient Centered).  While injuries maybe seem similar on the surface, there can be multiple different factors to consider with each patient to maximize results.

Functional Chiropractic is a unique approach to injuries that limit peoples’ activities and cause them pain.  Looking at the interaction between the bones, muscles and nerves, we can develop a treatment approach that addresses ALL aspects of their injuries. 

Looking at the body in movement, gives us a better understanding of the injury

(If a picture is worth 1000 words, a video is priceless).

 Having the unique ability to grow up with chiropractic, with my father being a Chiropractor for nearly 50 years.  Working together for 15 years, before he retired – I was able to garner a lot of clinical experience from him.  My school in the United States was and continues to be a leader in Integrated Health Care giving a larger perspective of chiropractic, beyond just bones being out of place.  Over the past 20 years, I have been able to blend this all into the unique approach that is based on Strong Technical Skills.  Chiropractic has two parts, that are equally important to successful treatment of your issues.  First, you need to be able to properly identify the source(s) of the issue, then you need to be able to provide the appropriate treatment.  If you miss either part, the patient doesn’t get better. 

Lastly but not least, is that we are Results Driven. This simply means that we find the problem, work with the patient to resolve the issue, and then complete the care. We Care about our patients, and don’t pressure them into ongoing treatment plans, that benefit our pocket book.  We develop treatment plans that are based on the patients needs.
