Our practice is designed to serve the specific and individual needs of each of our patients from infants to super seniors. Our goal is to enable each patient to embrace healthy lifestyles and to be physically able to live in comfort, fitness, and emotional and mental wellbeing. We accomplish this goal by:
· Pain relief. Most patients come to us for pain relief and we achieve this for them quickly and efficiently.
· Education. We believe that the better we educate each patient into daily habits that include safe activity patterns, proper rest and nutrition, effective and safe fitness and exercise regimens, and emotional stress and postural management, the more effective our hands on treatments will be – both in the short and long terms.
· Modelling and living the life. All of our Drs., therapists, and staff are active and healthy individuals. We embrace and “walk the walk” of positive and healthy lifestyle habits. We strive to model healthy attitudes and behaviors for everyone whose lives we touch.
Our treatment is evidence supported and embodies best current practice protocols with the patient’s specific and various needs always at the center of treatment plans. This ensures that patient safety and treatment effectiveness are always the main focus of our clinic. This focus requires:
In concept chiropractic is very simple. Chiropractic “adjustments” rely on the body’s natural and innate mechanisms we are all born with (ie. the body’s natural ability to self-heal, self-regulate and preserve a status quo). The adjustments reintroduce and/or reinforce a healthy and efficient neuromusculoskeletal status quo. Its effect on the nervous system (re)create better and more efficient movement patterns, reduces the painful protective measures and reinforces the body’s ability to sustain these changes over the long term.
Your Dr. of Chiropractic will determine through history taking, physical examination, and perhaps imaging (X-ray, diagnostic ultrasound, CT or MRI scans) if you’re a suitable candidate for chiropractic intervention. If so, a treatment plan is based on a working diagnosis and ongoing physical changes are monitored to ensure that positive progress is occurring with treatment.
If appropriate physical and symptom changes are not happening, then a re-evaluation will be performed to determine what needs to change in the treatment plan, co-management with other therapies, or referral to another specialist.
Our entire team at SCC is dedicated to helping our patients live healthier lives. This includes more than just keeping you pain free. We recognize that our bodies are complicated, interconnected systems which require many different components to each be working well for the entire system to function efficiently and effectively.
Our “hands on” treatment is primarily directed toward pain relief and prevention of future pain episodes. Additionally, because our treatments are mediated through the nervous system, there are often additional benefits.
Additional benefits that occur from chiropractic care include:
As part of the physical changes which we introduce, we believe that our patients must be educated in ways to enhance these changes. Things like weight loss and dietary advice, postural and ergonomic education in the workplace and at home, proper and effective fitness and exercise routines, stress management strategies, plus referral to experts in these fields is part of our responsibility to those who seek our help.
