Main Chiropractic Services

The goal of Main Street Chiropractic is to improve or maintain mobility. The function of our joints is to move our body and when an area is not fully mobile, like the low back, we experience stiffness, pain, inflammation and muscle spasm. This situation does not promote healing. The hands on chiropractic adjustment which is like a small, fast stretch is the most effective tool to restore joint mobility, inhibit muscle spasm and thereby reduce symptoms. Soft tissue therapy and stretches are used to help in the treatment but it’s the key chiropractic adjustment that unlocks the joint and reduces stress on the area by returning it to more normal movement.

Good motion is essential for the health and nutrition of the joints, discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles that attach because it allows the exchange of nutrients and wastes via the flow of fluids. Good motion helps reduce pain, muscle spasm and imbalances, scar tissue formation and improves nervous system function and overall health.  Without movement, discs and joints may degenerate more quickly than usual, leading to Degenerative Joint Disease.

What to expect on your first visit:

On your first visit to the Main Street Chiropractic clinic and training centre one of the chiropractors will ask you questions regarding your health and any conditions you have. Then you will have a physical examination of the musculoskeletal system. X rays are only ordered in specific cases, such as if a fracture is suspected, and are done at the Ottawa Hospital.  All the information gained is then discussed with you and recommendations are given for treatment. Most people get good results with this approach. Our office participates in many insurance programs. We also accept auto accident and workers compensation cases.
