Services Offered at Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic in Richmond Hill, ON
Chronic pain, especially low back pain, is a common complaint among many adults. Poor posture, injuries, lifting techniques, and even your diet can have an impact on your ability to get through the day without discomfort. At Spinalcare Chiropractic Clinic in Richmond Hill, we offer a range of personalized services that can help relieve your pain.
About Chronic Pain
The human body is a marvel of biological engineering. Like many interconnected systems, however, if one part is out of alignment, it results in problems. When you hurt, the natural tendency is to guard against the pain by changing the way you move. Your body adapts to these changes – muscles become shortened and tense, increasing the risk of muscle spasms. Inflammatory chemicals released by the tissues make the problem worse. Chiropractic treatment can reverse these conditions, restore function and relieve your pain.
Restoring your health is not a one-size-fits-all activity and you need an approach that targets the actual causes of the problem. To that end, we offer:
Chiropractic Care – spinal manipulation and adjustment of problematic joints puts your body back in balance. In addition to traditional hands-on adjustments, chiropractor Ronnie Chan uses the activator, a hand-held device that allows precision adjustments.
Massage Therapy – tense muscles are a source of pain. Massage improves the blood flow to the muscle, reduces swelling and improves range of motion.
Acupuncture – when combined with massage and chiropractic treatment, acupuncture helps relieve musculoskeletal pain. It is also useful for migraines.
Corrective Exercise – once the initial treatment relieves your pain, corrective exercises help retrain your body so you move correctly. These exercises also help stretch and strengthen muscles, promoting better posture.
Lifestyle Advice – we can help coach you in ways to manage your personal health challenges. Daily habits have a big impact on health; small changes can make a big difference.
Personalized Exercise Plan – whether it's weight reduction, improved mobility or increased range of motion, we can help develop a program that meets your needs.
Nutritional Counseling – how you “fuel” your body has a major impact on overall wellness. For example, some foods increase inflammation.
Custom Orthotics – poor arch support and foot alignment can cause back and knee pain and affect your posture; orthotics can correct these problems.

In addition to chronic pain, we treat problems resulting from whiplash, degenerative disc disease, plantar fasciitis, scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and sciatica. Migraines and other headaches, herniated discs, and osteoarthritis often respond to the multifaceted treatment options we offer.
