Treating the Cause, Not Only the Symptoms
Chiropractic medicine is a hands-on, non-invasive, and drug free discipline. It focuses on the health and balance of neuromusculoskeletal system to support and promote the body’s self healing. Using safe evidence based manual therapy, it focuses on treating the root cause of your dysfunction, not only your symptoms.
Andy uses a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, she will develop and carry out a comprehensive care plan. She will recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, while providing nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling. Her goal is to address the underlying cause of your body’s dysfunction, not simply the symptoms.
Do you leak a little when you sneeze, cough, or jump? No amount of leakage or pain is normal, and Andy is here to help! She has extended training in external pelvic floor therapy for issues involving pelvic weakness or tightness such as incontinence, painful sex, prolapse, pressure or pain in the pelvis, and frequent urination. This therapy can be used for men and women of any age, not just pregnant women. Andy also has extended training in treating diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation). All postpartum women are assessed for diastasis with Andy and treated if needed.
When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, Andy will refer her patients to other trusted health care professionals to coordinate care. Chiropractic care may complement and support other medical treatments by relieving the neuromusculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
The Chiropractic Adjustment
One of the most common therapies Andy uses are safe and effective spinal adjustments. Specific training allows her to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement, pain relief and support optimum health. Andy has training in diversified, Thompson, Activator, craniosacral, visceral manipulation, and Webster chiropractic techniques in order to provide her patients with multiple gentle options.
