Chiropractor in Barrie & Angus - What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractor Barrie, Angus

Chiropractic care is a branch of health care specializing in the correction of biomechanical disorders of the spinal column and joint systems of the arms and legs. Biomechanics disorders deal with injuries to joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons and their relationship with nerve function and pain (neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction).

Chiropractors help to relieve many conditions associated with spinal alignment, spinal nerves, joints of the arms and legs and many others. Our licensed chiropractors utilize many forms of treatment to meet the needs of each patient, such as Trigger Point therapy, joint mobilizations, Activator methods, custom orthotics, and modalities, as well as Active Release Technique, Acupuncture and Graston Technique.

The primary form of treatment in chiropractic care is the ADJUSTMENT (manipulation), which is a fast, short, highly specific and controlled thrust directed at the joint, with the purpose of restoring joint motion and relieving pain. The use of this form of treatment distinguishes chiropractors from other health care professionals. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to be a safe and effective form of therapy.

Our Chiropractor, Dr. Avik Sarkar, has won the Readers' Choice Award for "Barrie's Favourite Chiropractor" for two years in a row (2019 and 2020).
