Conditions Treated

Chiropractic treatment provides effective pain relief and improved quality of life to almost a million Albertans (and millions of others worldwide) each year.

Doctors of Chiropractic (chiropractors) are trained to diagnose and treat conditions related to nerves, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Chiropractors are highly trained health care professionals and are trained extensively in manual therapy.
