It combines scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology and clinical methods of investigation.
Custom Orthotics are often covered, with little or no cost to you, by extended health benefits and a referral from your family physician. After the initial consultation, Aches n' Pains Therapy Centre can provide a recommendation to your family doctor so they can give you a valid referral or RX that your insurance company will accept.
After treatment, a chiropractor can advise on maintaining a realistic level of health and avoiding things that might be damaging. For example, remedial exercises to adjust posture, or advice on diet and lifestyle can be given as part of a personal health care program.
