Chiropractic is a primary contact health profession that focuses on non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system.
Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Dr. Newman is skilled in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and extremity joints. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.
Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are chosen based on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, Dr. Newman can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, exercise and lifestyle counselling.
Chiropractic care may be used to treat acute injuries as well as be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions.
