The treatment techniques used

Manual treatments

Diversified is the most common form of chiropractic treatment. This form of adjustment can create cracking sounds, which is simply a release of air stuck inside the joint space.

Thompson technique

The Thompson technique is another gentler form of chiropractic care. With the use of "drops" on the table, the chiropractor can help the joints move gently back into proper alignment.

Activator technique

The activator is a small mechanical instrument, used to gently restore motion in your spine. It is very light and can be used on anyone including babies and the elderly.

Best Chiropractor

A comprehensive approach

The first visit

At Chiropractie Capelle, the initial patient examination is a visit lasting around 30 minutes. This examination begins with a comprehensive history of your symptoms and a look at your current and past physiological stresses. 

The chiropractor will then proceed to an in-depth physical examination to determine the source of your problems and imbalances, and will lastly administer an initial treatment to begin restoring your body’s function and motion.

Chiropractic Treatment

Our approach can be better explained through a three phase care plan, aiming at restoring and optimizing your body’s function and movement, then maintaining on the long term.

Intial/Pain relief

The first phase of care is aimed at reducing symptoms, pain, and inflammation. When you are in pain you naturally begin to “compensate”. This leads to other imbalances and later on to other problems if left uncorrected 

This first phase includes chiropractic treatments, muscle release, specific stretching recommendations, and kinesio taping when required

Correction/Stabilization

Once your pain is decreased we can start further correcting the root cause of the problem, what lead you to be in pain in the first place. 

This is supported by  treatments and specific strengthening exercise recommendations. The frequency of the treatments become progressively reduced as your body gains stability and balance.

Maintenance/Prevention

As your spine becomes more balanced,  your mobility and strength are adequate, and your symptoms are under control our sole goal is to then maintain proper function to avoid re-occurrence of your symptoms.

This is the maintenance phase, here it is important that you continue exercising regularly, periodic treatments might also be recommended depending on your condition.
