About Chiropractors

Not sure how a chiropractor can help you? Curious to find out how adjustments works? Want to know exactly when you need a chiropractor? Here are some of your most common questions answered

What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors are manual therapists who provide diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system, extremities and joints. Some conditions that chiropractors treat include:
– Shoulder pain
-Osteoarthritis pain
– Whiplash
– Neck Pain
– TMJ & Jaw Pain
– Nerve pain
– Sciatica
– Disc Injuries
– … and more

If you suffer from any pain (acute or chronic), have limited range in your joints, want to feel stronger in your movements , then yes – a Chiropractor can help you!

How do adjustments work? What is that cracking sound? Is it safe?

An adjustment (also known as joint manipulations) is when your chiropractor applies directed & controlled force to your joints to restore limited range of motion, decrease pain, and reduce nerve irritation.

The “crack” you hear during your adjustment is just the joints opening up. Think about a suction cup releasing from a wall. It is NOT your bones “cracking”. When your joints are stiff, there’s a lot of pressure that is built up in the joint space – and the “pop” is just the sound of that pressure releasing.

Yes – adjustments are safe! Chiropractic Doctors are trained for years in the art & science of proper joint manipulations. They will always perform a thorough assessment to ensure adjustments are safe and beneficial for you.

Do I need a Chiropractor or Physiotherapist?

There is not much difference when it comes to conditions that a chiropractor or physiotherapist can treat. Both professionals are trained to relieve pain, rehab injuries, and help you strengthen your joints. At Axis, we often suggests therapists based on their experience treating your specific condition – and availability, especially if you are in pain.

In saying that, there are a few instances where we would suggest one over the other

– Looking for adjustments
– Any spinal disc injuries or herniations

– Post surgical rehab
– Looking for more active strengthening program

Do you accept insurance? How about OHIP?

Yes! We offer direct insurance billing for most major insurance companies. However, every policy is different and we may not be able to process the direct billing. Please check with your insurance company.

We ARE NOT an OHIP/ODSP approved clinic.
