Doctors of chiropractic are specialists of the muskuloskeletal system (bones and muscles). We also spend a lot of time focusing on the nervous system! All of our DCs practice medical acupuncture as well as diversified chiropractic techniques.
Registered physiotherapists treat functional problems with muscles, joints, bones, nervous and circulatory systems. Our PT also provides dry-needling and medical-based acupuncture.
Registered massage therapists treat the soft tissues of the body (muscles and connective tissues) with manual, hands-on therapy.
Naturopathic doctors are specialists at diagnosing and treating the body as whole as naturally as possible. Prevention is also a major focus!
