Chiropractors practice a drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, and extremity joints, and the effect these disorders have on the nervous system.
Chiropractic is a regulated health profession recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces and American states. Canadian chiropractors undergo an intensive four-year, full-time course of study, following three years of university, before qualifying to undertake national examinations and become licensed to practice.
Chiropractic can help ease pain from the following common problem areas; lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, extremity numbness/tingling, sports injuries, workers compensation injuries, and motor vehicle accidents.
Coverage can be provided by most major insurance companies. Services are partially covered by Manitoba Health.
