Repair – Restore – Revitalize
“There is a vast difference between treating the effects and adjusting the cause “– D.D Palmer (Founder of Chiropractor)
The word “chiropractic” comes from ancient Greek and means “done by hand.”
Chiropractors specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, addressing pain in joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves. Through hands-on manual adjustment of the spine, chiropractors work to optimize your musculoskeletal structure.
When your spine isn’t aligned or moving well, it can cause significant problems with the rest of your body. Whether your pain has developed quickly or over time, a chiropractor can restore mobility, help tissues heal, and reduce pain. Whether you are suffering from headaches, back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee pain, plantar fasciitis or other conditions, a chiropractor can help.
We feel it’s important to offer a multitude of adjusting methods to accommodate the different needs of each individual person.
What are adjustments?
Adjustments are safe and effective treatments to decrease pain and increase range of motion in your spine and extremities. A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain among many other conditions. A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying a high velocity, low amplitude, pain-free pressure to the joint that is exhibiting abnormal movement patterns or is failing to function normally.
What do adjustments treat?
Low back pain
Arthritis and joint pain
Our goal is to help you get out of pain, and back to the life you enjoy as soon as possible.
After a detailed initial exam to determine what the issue is, we’ll recommend what we feel is the best way to correct the problem with a treatment plan tailored to you.
Based on your condition, your treatment may consist of chiropractic adjustment, soft tissue therapy, taping, acupuncture, ultrasound and other approaches. You may also be given exercises to do at home.
“I have been very impressed by my experience with physiotherapy at this LCP Health location in Yellowknife. I appreciated the systematic approach taken to determine the source of my injury and that working with the physiotherapist was a collaborative process in which great care was taken to achieve an optimal outcome for me. I have noticed dramatic improvement in my condition in a short time, and the quality of patient care here has been outstanding in my experience thus far. In addition, the customer service is exceptional and the facility and employees are very welcoming. The studio is also very well appointed with clean and modern equipment. I think that anyone looking for physiotherapist should look into LCP Health! This clinic seems to be an under-utilized resource in Yellowknife that many could leverage to improve their health and wellbeing. – Simon Kassissia “
