Chiropractic

Chiropractic care addresses symptoms and conditions with a primary focus on  the neuromusculoskeletal system. It is a non-surgical, non-drug approach to promoting your body’s ability to heal itself. Your doctor of chiropractic considers everything that contributes to your overall health and wellbeing - your health history, family history, current symptoms, eating habits, work and lifestyle.

At Northwestern, our doctors of chiropractic personalize their care for you. The doctor combines exams, laboratory evaluation and imaging to help understand the root cause of disease and dysfunction. Your care may include working with other members of our healthcare team, your family practice provider and other specialists.

Through adjustments and manual manipulation of the spine and other joints, doctors of chiropractic restore function to the body and freedom of movement. Your care can also include posture training, exercises and rehabilitation, physiotherapy and nutritional counsel, in the process of receiving a complete strategy for optimal health and wellbeing.
