Chiropractic, also known as chiropractic care, is a health discipline that seeks to prevent and treat health problems by using spinal adjustments in order to correct misalignments, or subluxations. Chiropractic is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or medicines.
At the Beaumaris Health Centre, our Physiotherapist, Hank Ferris, treats, manages and prevents many physical problems caused by illness, disease, sport-and work-related injury, aging and long periods of inactivity and motor vehicle accidents. People often seek treatment for conditions such as back and neck pain, arthritis, repetitive strain and sport injuries, and post-surgical recovery.
Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm and stress; and to promote health and wellness. Therapeutic Massage and Muscular Therapy offer effective, drug-free treatment for pain and stress management.
An ‘orthotic’ is a device designed to restore your natural foot function. Many ‘biomechanical’ (walking) complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain are caused by poor foot function. Orthotics re-align the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position, thereby restoring natural foot function. In turn this helps alleviate problems in other parts of the body.
