Discover what we do. Chiropractors are the non-surgical spine and musculoskeletal care experts. Ours is a health profession that’s concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders arising in the musculoskeletal system, and any effects brought about by these disorders on the function of the patient’s general health and nervous system.
Chiropractors focus on how the structure of the body (primarily the pelvis and the spine) relate to its function (coordinated by the nervous system), and analyse how changes in this relationship affect the preservation and restoration of an individual’s overall health.
Although disorders of the spine are our speciality, we also diagnose and treat other areas of the musculoskeletal system (ankles, feet, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, jaw). Consulting on issues such as headaches, neck pain and back pain, we treat both muscles and joints with an emphasis on the use of manual treatments such as spinal adjustment and manipulation of joints and soft-tissue.
At Optimal Spine we supplement traditional chiropractic techniques with many other manual medicine modalities in order to tailor our care to each individual’s needs. We have a broad range of treatment tools at our disposal in order to treat both joint and soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia) problems.
