Chiropractic Services at HPC
Chiropractic is the art, science and philosophy of natural, hands-on healing. Chiropractic care can help reduce pain, improve range of motion, maximize performance and contribute to overall wellness.
The Chiropractors at Guelph's Health and Performance Centre support our clients by assessing and treating a variety of conditions using chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, myofacial release therapy (MRT), Graston Technique, education on self-help strategies, and prescribed exercise.
Chiropractic Treatment Options
Before your first visit to the HPC for a chiropractic session you will need to book a chiropractic assessment. This includes the completion of a standard questionnaire with billing and personal information as well as providing consent to be treated by a Doctor of Chiropractic. These appointments are booked for 40 minutes and you will be assessed and likely treated in that time. Your Chiropractor will guide you to understand more about your condition and show you how you can be involved in your own treatment plan.
Chiropractic treatments are the standard chiropractic sessions that are booked following your initial assessment. A chiropractic treatment is 20 minutes in length and will involve continuing discussion of the treatment plan, treatment techniques that are appropriate for management of the injury, and any further education and exercise prescription to complement the initial plan.
Complex Chiropractic Treatment
A complex chiropractic treatment can be booked following your initial assessment. This treatment is longer in duration due to increased needs for your chiropractic treatment. These appointments are 40 minutes in length and involve continuing discussion of the treatment plan, treatment techniques that are appropriate for management of the injury, and any further education and exercise prescription to complement the initial plan.
Chiropractic Telehealth Session
A shorter consultation treatment session to check-in on progress and answer questions, provide guidance, education and exercise prescription/review.
Complex Chiropractic Telehealth Session
This session should be booked for our patients who are looking for a more detailed review of their injury recovery, re-assessment of mobility, function and goals and for progressions of self-care and exercise programs.
