We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, our chiropractors have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to our chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. There are many benefits of massage therapy, which may include an increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage is also known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
"Acupuncture is a collection of procedures involving penetration of the skin with needles in order to stimulate certain points on the body. In its classical form it is a characteristic component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a form of alternative medicine; and one of the oldest health practices in the world. According to TCM, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of through channels known as meridians."
Physiotherapy plays a key role in the health of individuals across the care continuum. Physiotherapy is effective in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of acute and chronic conditions, the prevention of injury and disability and in promoting health and well-being.
Utilizing a variety of techniques and treatment methods, physiotherapists can help relieve pain, restore movement, improve strength and flexibility as well as enhance patients overall physical and emotional well-being. Treatments may include manual therapies, mobilizations, stretches, pain relieving modalities, balance training, active conditioning, education and home-based exercise instruction.
The focus of Kinesiology is to maintain, rehabilitate and/or enhance movement, performance and function, the areas of sport, recreation, work, exercise, and activities of daily living.
Registered Kinesiologists work with individuals of all ages and ability levels, by applying the principles of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology and psychomotor behaviour to improve the health, function and performance of an individual. Registered Kinesiologsits are committed to enhancing the quality of life through the promotion of physical activity, workplace health, and the prevention and management of injury, chronic disease and disability.
When we feel our best, we can train our bodies to be stronger, faster, and more powerful. Our Registered Kinesiologist will motivate you to stay active, provide programs for the pre-season, in-season, or off-season, and help work through old injuries, prevent illness and new injuries to maintain an active and strong lifestyle.
At Align Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches may be caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Tamara Holowka can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Mississauga community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at (905) 567-9317 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
