Chiropractors offer specialized, hands-on treatments of the spine, muscles, and joints in your body. Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science that can add a new element of wellness to your overall healthcare. Although its main focus is rooted in the relationship between the skeleton – especially the spine – and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractors can assess many other parts of the human body. When you work with a chiropractor, you’ll focus on addressing the source of your pain or problems – not just masking or treating the symptoms.
Chiropractors are regulated health professionals in the province of Nova Scotia. The Nova Scotia College of Chiropractors represents and supports our almost 200 registered Chiropractors.
In Nova Scotia, chiropractors use various diagnostic tools to help uncover the state of health and function in your body, paying particular attention to your spine and nervous system. These tools include x-rays, hands-on assessments, and more. Spinal adjustments or manipulation, as well as other manual techniques, are the primary methods used by chiropractors to help your body heal itself.
