Services offered at Shoreline Chiropractic
Below, is a brief summary of some of the Toronto health and wellness services we provide.
We carefully and effectively perform chiropractic adjustments in order to treat a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions. To do so, Dr. Canning will place his hands on the target areas and proceed to mobilize the joints. Upon applying a brisk, short movement, an audible release may ensue. These chiropractic manipulations have been proven to reduce muscle spasms, relieve pain, restore optimal joint function, and increase range of motion and joint mobility. https://chiropractic.on.ca/
We help our patients perform specific exercises and/or stretches and then provide them with an exercise regime that they can implement at home. Each exercise regime is specially tailored to the unique body type and condition of our patients. The purpose of these exercises is to train or retrain the body to perform in an optimal fashion: free of pain and limited mobility. To do so, we begin by performing stretches and exercises that relieve pain, followed by exercises that are geared towards improving functionality and preventing pain and strain relapses.
We use a proprietary and patented tape to reduce swelling and treat muscular disorders. Kinesio tape is applied on and around one’s muscles to provide support and prevent over-contraction. This method allows the patient to have a full range of motion, allowing them to participate in physical activities without further assistance. The Kinesio taping method also serves to provide facilitation of lymph flow throughout the day. http://kinesiotape.ca/
Distraction Technique involves gently stretching the spinal joints to decompress the lower spine. The process consists of repetitive slow movements, instead of dynamic trusts, and has proven effective against lumbar stenosis, disc problems, and facet syndrome. https://www.coxtechnic.com/
