Chiropractic Care

We want you to be able to live an active, healthy lifestyle.

Scope Chiropractic strives to promote top quality, patient centered, chiropractic care. We endeavor to promote and inspire living a healthy and active lifestyle.

Chiropractic Adjustments

A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a safe way to reduce pain, improve joint function and mobility. Adjustments can be performed to the joints of the spine and upper and lower limbs. This form of treatment is very effective and, as such, is central to scope chiropractic’s treatments.

Musculoskeletal Acupuncture

Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and restore function to specific areas of the body. It involves targeting very fine needles at trigger points (taught bands of hypersensitive muscle) and can relieve pain very quickly. For people who suffer with chronic or nerve pain the needles may be left in for up to 20 minutes to have a more central effect on the nervous system. This ‘dulls down’ the pain sensitivity of the brain, reducing the body’s sensation of pain.

Corrective Exercises

Exercise prescription is what differentiates us to other Chiropractors. We prescribe specific functional exercises to help promote better body mechanics and prevent future re-occurrences of pain or dysfunction. Due to certain repetitive daily habits, we start to lose basic movement patterns which often go undetected until symptoms such as pain are produced. Our exercises are prescribed to reduce pain, improve mobility and restore basic movement and balance patterns.

Active Release Technique

ART is a form of muscle therapy that can instantly improve flexibility and restore motion to connective tissue. The technique involves releasing taught and hypersensitive areas of muscle, ligament and fascia. This is especially effective for persistent and recurrent pain or injuries as it allows your muscles and ligaments to glide and function easier.

Maintenance Care

Our goal is to keep our patients doing what they love doing for as long as possible. Our maintenance treatments are not only about providing treatment to tight or restricted areas, but are also about utilizing that time for patient support, updating exercises and modifying activities of daily living. We want to give our patients the opportunity to live a healthy, happy life through a well moving body.

Pillow Fitting

We spend about one third of our life sleeping; hence, having a properly fitted and supportive pillow is vital for your spinal health. We can identify the appropriate levels of height and support that suits you.
