In-Home Chiropractic Therapy
At Gateway Home Healthcare all of our health care providers will conduct an extensive assessment that will include a health history, evaluation of pain and movement patterns, strength, joint range of motion, reflexes and sensation. In addition, the health care provider will examines relevant xrays, laboratory tests, medical records and surgical notes. Based on this assessment the health practitioner establishes a diagnosis and works in partnership with the other health care practitioners helping the patient to develop individualized goals and treatment programs.
Chiropractic Care is one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in Ontario. Chiropractic Care involves the comprehensive assessment and treatment of various disorders of the body via non-invasive, manual, hands-on care that focuses on the neuromuscular system. This system of care also focuses on preventive care.
Gateway Home Healthcares’ Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. Our Chiropractors may incorporate modalities such as ultrasound, IFC, TENS, and laser to treat pain. Whenever possible they apply stretching and strengthening exercise programs with the aid of equipment we bring to the home including resistance bands/weights, portable cardiovascular equipment and exercises balls. The patients’ progress is constantly monitored and progressed under supervision of the Chiropractor.
While Chiropractic Care is most frequently applied to address spinal injuries, it can complement and support medical treatment of all other areas of the body
