Our Chiropractic Techniques

Having attended the chiropractic university that teaches the highest number of chiropractic techniques within the core curriculum, our Barrhaven chiropractors have many tools to assist you in your healing.  We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use will be specific to what we feel will work best for your individual chiropractic case and is based on our judgment and years of experience.  Chiropractic adjustments should feel good, if you are ever uncomfortable with a specific style of adjusting we can change which technique we use for you.
