A chiropractor is a health care professional who diagnoses and treats any kind of muscle, joint, or bone pain. It places special emphasis on treatment through manual change and manipulation of the spine.

What are Chiropractic Services?

Chiropractic is an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments after taking a comprehensive health history, perform a detailed musculoskeletal physical examination and establish a diagnosis related to the spine, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractic treatment aims to correct dysfunctions related to muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues, but may also include exercises, health, and lifestyle counseling.

Often chiropractors seek to ease pain and improve the viability of patients and lecture them on how they can be healthy through exercise, ergonomics, and other forms of therapies to promote optimal health and well being.

Benefits of Chiropractic Services

Chiropractors are majorly known for focusing on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and their impact on your general health and wellness. Chiropractic services are now widely in use, treating everything from back pain to stress to sports injuries. Some benefits of Chiropractic care include the following:

Provides powerful pain relief: one of the main benefits of chiropractic care is pain relief as well as finding the root cause of the pain and/or dysfunction. It can assist in the relief or even the treatment of some health and body issues like sciatica, neck pain, scoliosis, lower back pain, headaches, and frozen shoulder syndrome.

Promotes healthy joint function: inflammation is one of the top reasons for the development of muscle tension, joint issues, and pain. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to help reduce chronic inflammation, thereby relieving lower back pain and joint pain. Chiropractic adjustments are intended to alleviate joint and back pain by returning the joint to its natural alignment, allowing it to properly support the body’s weight and achieve a wider range of motion.

Personalized treatment plans: every case and human body is unique to its own. A personalized assessment will help properly diagnose the root cause to provide the chiropractor with better insight on what may be occurring. From there, a personalized treatment will be provided consisting of various techniques such as joint mobilizations, manual therapy and corrective exercises.

Chiropractic Techniques

Spinal Manipulation: also called spinal manipulative therapy is a technique where practitioners apply a specifically directed manual impulse, or thrust, to a joint, at or near the end of the passive (or physiological) range of motion. It’s designed to relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function. It’s often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain.

Myofascial Release:  is a technique that helps attend to groups of muscles and nerves that become trapped under adhered connective tissue. Fascias are layered bands of fibrous connective tissues. They surround and wrap organs, muscles and bones. Fascia could be affected by stress (often repetitive), trauma, postural imbalance and inflammation creating restrictions and adhesions referred to as snags.

Corrective Exercise:  is a technique that utilizes an understanding of biomechanics, anatomy and kinesiology to fix and address common movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during workouts and in everyday life.

Who Can Benefit from Chiropractic Services?

Chiropractic services are for individuals of all ages who are seeking relief from pain or discomfort in the musculoskeletal system, including the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

People seek the help of a chiropractor for many different reasons including pain relief, mobility, flexibility, health care and performance enhancement. Pain is the body’s warning system, but it’s not foolproof. Judging your health by how you feel can be dangerous. Many conditions and diseases are well advanced by the time you are aware of them.

Many people along with athletes use Chiropractic Services as a means of enhancing their performance and improving their overall quality of life.

I go to Chi Hai for physiotherapy and it’s been one of the best experiences I had. I’ve torn my calf muscle and sprained my calf and I have been going to him for some time now and everytime I leave, I always feel better.

A few months before my marathon, I injured my knee. Thankfully, Chi Hai guided me through my recovery. With his help, I was able to complete my first marathon in under 5 hours, just as I had hoped. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a skilled physiotherapist.

James is hands down a top tier practitioner and specialist for sports related injury prevention and rehab and well being in general . I like the attention to detail when discussing various parts of the body and stretching or massaging based on what's needed, and in a way that can actually help your discomforts feel better.

Chi Hai has been an instrumental PT in the recovery for my knee injury. The knee pain is nearly gone thanks to the physio workout regimens he has taught me in the first session. In the first session he showed me clearly how to do every exercise and critiqued everything so I was following the best form possible. Post session he emailed me instructions with the sets and reps for each workout and also advised with YouTube videos for visual descriptions. The physio regimen was not easy, but thanks to pushing myself and staying dedicated to the routine, I feel much better now than 4 months ago. Now we're working on building back my strength and my ability to land safely when jumping. I'm really happy with my progress and I can safely say it is due to Chi Hai's great attention to detail in diagnosing my problems and figuring out the best solution based on my current level of fitness. The thought of being able to sprint full speed and grabbing rebounds while playing basketball again without the thought of pain is something I can't wait to look forward to. Thanks again Lu Strength for your help.

I’ve been to James for injury rehab and general maintenance and would highly recommend Lu Strength and Therapy! I’ve recently started seeing Alcina for physio as well, and both are super knowledgeable and practical in their treatment and prescribed self-care exercises. Their facility is great and has a large gym where they go over exercises and movement patterns with you as part of the treatment. Everyone at the clinic is also super friendly and welcoming.

I've been seeing James for a couple months now and I haven't been disappointed once. I injured my lower back a few months ago and with manual therapy and some prescribed exercises, the nagging pain I experienced went away. Very knowledgeable, genuine and overall a friendly guy. 10/10 would recommend especially if you're in the sport of weightlifting or powerlifting Update: 7 years later I’m still going to James and his team and they’re still doing a fantastic job!
