What is Chiropractic Care?
The main focus of chiropractic care is the relationship between
the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system
that runs through it. Since your nervous system is responsible
for every function of your body, chiropractic is also concerned
with the care of the entire body.
Chiropractic focuses on addressing the source of your problem,
not simply with treating symptoms.
Doctors of Chiropractic use various diagnostic methods to
identify the state of your health, paying particular attention to
your spine, nerves, muscles and bone structure. Spinal
adjustments, as well as other manual techniques, are the
primary methods chiropractors use to help your body heal

to become licensed to practice. Chiropractic is a regulated health
profession in all Canadian provinces.
Family Chiropractic Care
  At Fundy Chiropractic and Wellness Centre we believe in helping    
families achieve their health potential. Here are some of the
ways family members may benefit from chiropractic care:
Pregnant Mothers
Pregnancy is a time of rapid physical changes. As the pregnancy
progresses, hormones cause the muscles and ligaments holding
the joints together to become loose, and the rapid weight gain
puts added stress on the spine and weight-bearing joints such as
hips, knees and feet.
Regular chiropractic care for the expecting mom can help
alleviate aches and pains associated with the pregnancy.
Chiropractors are specially trained to modify treatment during
each stage of pregnancy. As well, some studies have shown
chiropractic care significantly decreases the average time spent
in labour.
Children make great chiropractic patients! Along with regular
medical, dental, optical and other check-ups, children benefit
from periodic spinal care. For infants, regular chiropractic
check-ups are helpful to monitor spinal development as infants
learn to hold up their heads, sit up, crawl and take their first
steps. As the child gets older and more active all those bumps,
falls, and twists can put added stress on the growing spine.
Injuries such as these may cause many symptoms including back
and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort. Remember: “As
the twig is bent, so grows the tree.”
Chiropractic care is always adapted to the individual patient. It
is a highly skilled treatment, and in the case of children, very
Regardless of age, chiropractic care may help restore spinal
health. Over time, wear and tear on your spine and joints may
lead to degeneration and cause joint pain and stiffness.
Chiropractic treatment can help relieve these conditions so you
can fully enjoy your life!
What can I expect during my first visit?
Please ensure you allot about an hour for your first visit.
When you arrive you will be asked to fill out general information
forms and a health questionnaire. You will then have a complete
initial evaluation including:
In-depth health history
Physical examination, including a posture evaluation,
neurological and orthopedic testing. If necessary, you may be
