Airdrie Chiropractor Offering Certified Chiropractic Care & Services

Licensed Chiropractor in Airdrie, Alberta. Most often, the word “chiropractic” is associated with the spinal adjustment. While this is often true, the root of the word chiropractic, means “by hand”, which is a great description of what you will find at Embrace, since chiropractic is so much more than the adjustment.

Our Airdrie Chiropractor combines his in-depth knowledge of the body with specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions- or in layman terms injuries affecting nerves, muscles, and joints. Your treatment will be tailored to your unique needs and goals.

Each treatment will likely consist of some combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapies such as Active Release or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy, movement re-education, and home exercises when indicated. We offer our Airdrie chiropractor services to clients living in Airdrie and surrounding areas.

What is a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a healthcare professional that is licensed to focus on your body and ways that you can heal yourself through chiropractic care. Our chiropractor in Airdrie uses the neuromusculoskeletal system (ligaments, tendons, nerves), and works to alleviate symptoms such as back, neck and joint pain. 

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

This is a safe and controlled procedure which often performed using the hands or a tool to apply a quick but shallow thrust to a restricted or painful joint in the spine or extremity (i.e. shoulder, wrist, hip, ankle/foot, etc). The goal of an adjustment used by our Airdrie Chiropractor is to restore range of motion, reduce local muscle tension and alleviate pain surrounding the joint. 

How Chiropractic Treatments Work

Your chiropractor treatments will be tailored to your unique needs, goals, and preferences. Following detailed history and assessment of your area of concern, treatment options will be discussed with you to determine the best plan and treatment methods for you.

Each chiropractor treatment session will likely consist of some combination of chiropractic adjustments and/or joint mobilizations, soft tissue therapies such as Active Release or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Therapy, movement re-education, and home exercises when indicated to help you recover between treatment sessions and reduce pain/stiffness between visits.

The amount of visits recommended by our Airdrie chiropractor will depend on your unique presentation and goals with treatment. This is always a collaborative discussion with your chiropractor to ensure the recommended plan aligns with your goals and values. When presenting with injury your chiropractor may recommend frequent treatments such as 1-2x/week to start before tapering off once you have adequately recovered and have returned to activities which were limited.

Oftentimes continued care outside of pain and injury may be recommended or preferred by patients. We refer to this as maintenance or preventative care where issues such as muscle stiffness or joint limitations are addressed prior to developing into pain or injury. This care is tailored to your unique needs by our chiropractor and is designed to keep you moving well and feeling your best through all of life’s challenges whether that is work, posture concerns, or demands of your sport/activity.

Chiropractic treatments must be tailored and customized to your current situation, relief required and lifestyle, so all treatment schedules are different. Embrace Wellness will be sure to analyze and assess your current needs and requirements and discuss them with you.
