Chiropractic care is a holistic, hands-on approach to healthcare that primarily focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, especially those related to the spine. Rooted in the belief that a well-aligned spine contributes to the overall well-being of an individual, chiropractors employ a range of non-surgical techniques to enhance body function and promote natural healing.
What to expect in a visit?
A typical chiropractic visit involves a comprehensive assessment, including a detailed history and physical examination. Based on the findings, the chiropractor may use specific adjustments, often characterized by a controlled, gentle force, to correct spinal misalignments. These adjustments help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance the body's natural healing capabilities.
Beyond Spinal Adjustments
While spinal adjustments are central to chiropractic care, many chiropractors also incorporate other modalities into their practice. These might include massage therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and tailored exercise programs. These complementary treatments aim to offer a holistic approach to patient well-being.
The Body's Innate Intelligence: One of the foundational beliefs in chiropractic care is that the body has an innate intelligence – a self-regulating, self-healing mechanism. When the body is free from nervous system interference, this intelligence can function optimally, allowing the body to maintain health and heal itself naturally.
Subluxation and Nervous System Interference: Chiropractors emphasize the importance of the spine's structural integrity. Misalignments in the spine, termed "subluxations," can impede the nervous system's function. By correcting these subluxations, chiropractors aim to reduce or eliminate interference that may impair normal health through altered nerve function.
Holistic Approach to Health: Rather than focusing solely on symptom relief, chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to health. This means looking at the body as a whole and understanding how different systems are interconnected. By addressing the root causes of health issues and not just the symptoms, chiropractors aim for lasting wellness and prevention.
Natural, Non-Invasive Care: Chiropractic care emphasizes a drug-free, non-surgical approach to health and healing. By using manual adjustments and other natural modalities, chiropractors support the body's ability to heal itself without the need for medications or invasive procedures.
Having come in with a hairline fracture in his left wrist, my son underwent physiotherapy. The staff is very friendly and professional. They did not waste time while still maintaining a thorough preliminary evaluation. With continued and consistent appointments along with the at home exercises my son's strength increased by 10 lbs within a mere 5 sessions. Direct billing for benefits made it very convenient. Highly recommended.
I have had a great experience with Koonar Physiotherapy!! Early October I started treatment for dual herniated discs in my lower back. Jordan, Anna and Jon have been phenomenal in dealing with my injuries and slowly getting me back to 100%. Casey and Jessica at the front desk are sweethearts and always willing to try to accommodate my schedule(work, kids, etc.) I cant thank the whole staff enough for making me whole again!!!
Koonar physiotherapy is excellent!! I have been a patient there for over a year after a serious motor vehicle accident injury I endured. The Physiotherapists conducted a thorough examination of all my injuries and explained my issues in a clear yet comprehensive way, leaving me reassured. After following all the amazing advice, my pain is nearly gone and I am feeling incredible. The staff is super and is always very friendly. I thoroughly recommend Koonar physiotherapy.
Excellent well trained therapists. Very thorough and knowledgeable. Helped me gain range on my on my first visit. They use up to date methods and have the most up to date equipment. They also offer pool therapy to help with recovery.
I have never been cared for from any physiotherapy clinic in the same way and treated like a human being and felt like family caring as it is with Koonar Physo. The staff are extremely friendly and very knowledgable and always there to help. The owner Mike Koonar is always there to assist, his positive uplifting attitude is extremely helpful when you feel your worst but he is there to push you when you can do it. I will never go to any other physiotherapy represented places because of the treatment the opportunities for different types of treatment including Hydro therapy physiotherapy acupuncture and more. Mike and his team have worked together to put me back together so that I can function to my highest level.
Amazing!! Very friendly, knowledgeable and flexible with appointments. The entire staff has been great helping me pre and post surgery. Definitely made my bad days a whole lot better. Strongly recommend them.
