Did you know babies can benefit from chiropractic adjustments? Since their skeletons are not mature, a pediatric adjustment looks much different than the adjustments used to treat adults. Pediatric adjustments are more like a gentle massage of the spine and results can often be seen instantly.
Research studies have shown that chiropractic can reduce crying time by an average of 4 hours per day after only 10 days.
Whether you are professional athlete or a weekend warrior, injuries from intense physical activity are sometimes part of the game. Even those of us in the best of shape can tweak our backs, twist an ankle, or damage a knee.
If you’ve suffered a severe injury, you may be advised that surgery is the best course of action. But don’t assume it is until you’ve followed through with other potential options.
If you have a sports injury that just won’t seem to heal on its own, visit us for a personalized treatment plan to help tackle your issue. Chiropractic care can help you relieve the pain, stabilize the affected area, and advise you on how to avoid re-injuring the area again. With the right therapy, you’ll be back on the field in no time.

The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body, running down both legs from your lower back. So it’s no wonder it can have a direct effect on many parts of your body, especially your buttocks and legs. If you have a condition known as sciatica, you may experience constant pain in one leg and not the other, a sensation of “pins and needles” down your legs, or shooting pains that make it difficult to stand.
What causes sciatica? Anything that puts pressure on your sciatic nerve can cause these symptoms. One of the most common causes is a bulging or herniated disc in your lumbar (lower back) region.
A visit to your chiropractor can help you determine if your pain is sciatica. We’ll create a custom treatment plan to help reduce or eliminate the pain you’re experiencing and teach you ways to keep it under control. From a simple adjustment to other therapies, we have helped many patients in the Ottawa area relieve the pain of sciatica. Let us do the same for you.
You have probably heard of the term “slipped disc,” referring to a serious back injury. What you may not know is that this term is used to describe two different back issues, a bulging disc and a herniated disc. Discs are the spongy areas that provide the cushion between the vertebrae that make up your spine. A bulging disc is one that is injured in some way but still intact; if left untreated, it could become herniated or ruptured, which is a more serious condition.
The area where you’re feeling pain helps point to the source of the problem. An inflamed disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while an affected disc in the lower spine may result in lower-back pain or even pain that runs down the length of your leg. A bulging disc in your lower back can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause discomfort, tingling, numbness, or a burning sensation through the nerve extensions of your lower back and body.
If this describes the type of discomfort you’re feeling, book an appointment with us to assess your condition and provide potential treatments to relieve your pain and prevent future damage to the disc. Often, a simple adjustment can unlock your stiffened spine and relieve pressure from the disc so it can heal.
Don’t let a bulging disc keep you from being active. Visit us and get back to feeling like your healthy self.
While you may be most concerned over the damage to your vehicle after an auto accident, your first priority is your health. Personal injuries may not be immediately apparent after a crash. Symptoms of a whiplash can appear hours or even days after your collision.
The most important thing to do after a car accident is to mane an appointment and be assessed for a injury as soon as possible. The sooner you can get into our office, the more quickly we can help mitigate the pain, and possibly reduce the long-term effects of your injuries.
Remember, you can always get a new car, but you can’t get a new you. Chiropractic care required after an accident is completely covered under your automobile insurance policy. Don’t wait to see us!
