Kate's Tip to Clients:

We all know the value of maintaining an active lifestyle but it can be painful and frustrating to move often if we aren't moving well. Communicating with your chiropractor about your injury and your movement goals will allow them to meet you where you're at in the injury process and develop an individualized treatment plan. You can expect to be provided with strategies for reinforcing proper postures and movements,  and each visit will include a 'mini-audit' of how you're progressing to ensure that your treatment continues to provide optimal results.
