Chiropractic is a regulated healthcare profession in Canada that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of any issues related to muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, or bones of the body. Our chiropractic services offered at Gold Standard Rehab involve 1 on 1 sessions with a talented chiropractor to lead you through all your rehabilitation needs. Our chiropractors have extensive knowledge in diagnosis, management and treatment of a plethora of musculoskeletal conditions.
Chiropractic treatment begins with an in-depth assessment prior to treatment where your chiropractor works with you to understand what the root cause of your issue is. Following your initial consultation and comprehensive movement screen, a plan will be developed on how your chiropractor can help you best. Chiropractic treatment includes patient education, rehabilitative exercises, spinal manipulative therapy, soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, and more! While there are many different aspects of care, it comes down to what you and your chiropractor decide works best for you specifically; no two treatment plans are the same!

Students spend thousands of hours dedicated towards physiology, anatomy, biology, biomechanics, and more.

Chiropractors take the utmost caution and care when treating patients to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience is always provided. Much like physiotherapy or massage therapy, chiropractic is a safe and viable option for treating non-life threatening musculoskeletal injuries. Should you ever feel uncomfortable about any particular aspect of care, your treatment plan can be catered exactly to your comfort level.
