The practice of chiropractic consists of examination, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of spinal, joint and related neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction. Chiropractic care is based upon the biological and physiological sciences which apply equally to infants, children and adolescents as they do to adults.

Children can experience problems with neuromusculoskeletal functioning in the same way that adults can. For example, back pain is a prevalent condition among children.(1,2)

In the presence of neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction, and in the absence of contraindications, chiropractic adjustment is an appropriate and effective procedure. The chiropractor has an important role in providing care to infants, children and adolescents for neuromusculoskeletal conditions that fall within the scope of chiropractic practice, as well as providing a conservative, natural approach to body mechanics, posture and function.

Thousands of infants, children and adolescents benefit from the fruits of regular chiropractic care everyday. Chiropractic has become much more than an effective treatment for adult back pain. It has become a safe, effective health resource for all members of the family. Relief from pain, correction of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions and overall health optimization for all ages is what chiropractic can provide.

In addition to providing safe, effective treatment for back pain, scoliosis, headaches and the more obvious "chiropractically responsive" treatments in the young, we can also provide effective care for many other conditions. Common childhood conditions such as ear infections, asthma and infantile colic - to name a few - have been shown to respond favorably to chiropractic treatments. Chiropractors are leading the way in the natural and safe treatment of common childhood ailments and may increase the health of your child.

Chiropractic is a holistic approach to the treatment and management of health conditions. Chiropractic care encompasses a wide variety of safe, natural and noninvasive treatments. This includes chiropractic spinal adjustments, exercise and stretching programs, diet and nutritional counseling, soft tissue techniques, to name a few. In experienced hands, chiropractic care can provide your infant, child or adolescent with a lifetime of health and happiness.

In the best interest of the patient, chiropractors refer to physicians and other health care practitioners when diagnosis does not indicate chiropractic care, or when additional health care intervention may be required. Chiropractors will also co-manage a condition in co-operation with other health care professionals when more than one treatment modality will benefit the patient.

Doctors of chiropractic, as with all health care professionals, are required to obtain a patient's informed consent before commencing any examination, diagnostic procedure or treatment.(3) If the patient is a minor, chiropractors must obtain informed consent from a parent or legal guardian.

The Canadian Chiropractic Association represents the professional interests of Canada’s chiropractors. Chiropractic is a regulated health care profession recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces, and is one of the largest primary health care professions in Canada. The practice of chiropractic consists of the examination, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, management and prevention of spinal, joint and related neuromusculoskeletal disorders.

Testimonial

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
