Gabriola Health Centre - Dr. Chad Arsenault & Dr. Sara Burtinsky's Chiropractic Treatment Room Gabriola Chiropractic

At Gabriola Chiropractic we care for a wide range of health conditions, but focus specifically on disorders of muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves in all areas of the body. We treat people of all ages, using an integrated approach to injury prevention and treatment. We utilize a combination of manual therapies and treatment modalities including:

Active Release Techniques:

Are specifically designed to diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Active Release is used to diagnose, treat and release adhesions and scar tissue, restoring full range of motion. Active Release can also increase the circulation to tissues and relax chronically tight muscles.

Chiropractic Adjustments:

Work to normalize movement and alignment of the joints in the body. An adjustment is a specific force applied by hand in a precise direction to restore normal range of motion in a restricted joint. Adjustments are also effective in relaxing muscle spasm around injured joints.

Functional Exercise:

Is prescribed for patients to reduce the chances of re-injury. By correcting muscle imbalances and weaknesses, the body becomes more stable and able to function in an efficient manner.

The Orthotic Group Custom Orthotics: Many musculoskeletal conditions, such as leg, hip and back pain, first exhibit their symptoms in the feet. A simple non-invasive solution can often be custom crafted foot orthotics.
