I hope this blog post finds you in good health and high spirits! As we reach mid-summer, I wanted to take a moment to share some exciting news and updates from our clinic. 

What’s New - Arthritis

Lately, I have been seeing more cases of arthritis in the clinic. Arthritis is a common condition affecting millions of Canadians, causing joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Factors like age, injury, infection, or genetics can cause arthritis. However, one of the most common causes is the wear and tear of joints from uneven wear due to poor posture and imbalances

Poor posture and imbalances can result from sitting for long periods, slouching, carrying heavy bags, or wearing improper footwear. These habits can stress your spine and joints, leading to misalignment and dysfunction. Over time, this can lead to degeneration and inflammation of the cartilage and bone, causing arthritis. 

Fortunately, there is a natural and effective way to prevent and treat arthritis: chiropractic care. As a chiropractor, I can help you improve your posture and alignment by gently adjusting your spine and extremities. These adjustments can relieve pain and increase mobility by restoring the normal function of your joints. Sometimes, I use shockwave or laser therapy to assist soft tissue and joint healing. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow and tissue regeneration. Laser therapy is a light therapy that uses low-level lasers to penetrate the skin and stimulate tissue healing. 

Another way I can help you prevent and treat arthritis is by providing you with custom-made orthotics. Orthotics fit inside your shoes and support your feet and arches. They can help you correct your foot posture and gait, which can affect your whole body alignment. They can also help you cushion your feet and joints, reducing the impact and friction that can cause arthritis. 

If you are suffering from arthritis or want to prevent it, I encourage you to book an appointment with me today. I will assess your condition and design a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs and goals.  Click here to book. 

Highlight on A Service 

One of the services I am proud to offer at our clinic is cool laser therapy. Cool laser therapy is a safe, painless, and effective treatment using low-level lasers to stimulate tissue healing. Cool laser therapy can help you with various conditions, such as: 

  • Muscle strains and sprains 
  • Tendonitis and bursitis 
  • Arthritis and joint pain 
  • Nerve pain and neuropathy 
  • Wound healing and scar tissue 
  • Inflammation and swelling 

Cool laser therapy delivers light energy to the cells, converting it into chemical energy. This energy stimulates the cells to increase their metabolism, oxygen consumption, blood circulation, collagen production, and immune response. This leads to faster healing, reduced pain, improved function, and enhanced tissue quality. 

Cool laser therapy is suitable for people of all ages and health conditions. It has no side effects or contraindications and does not interfere with any medications or supplements. It is also very convenient and comfortable: each session lasts only 10 to 15 minutes, and you will feel no heat or sensation during the treatment. 

Cool laser therapy costs $98.75 per session, but as a special offer for this week only, I am giving you 10% off for your first try. That means you can experience the benefits of cool laser therapy for only $88.88!

How Our Clinic is Different 

At Tutt Street Family Chiropractic, our mission and vision are to change and save lives one person at a time in our community. We want to transform the community through chiropractic care and our services. We believe chiropractic care is more than just treating symptoms; it is about restoring health from the inside out. 

Chiropractic care operates on the belief that your body possesses an innate ability to heal itself when it is functioning and aligned correctly. Your spine is the communication channel for your nervous system, which controls every cell, organ, and system in your body. Stress, trauma, or toxins can cause your spine to become misaligned or subluxated, which disrupts the flow of information and energy between your brain and body. This can lead to pain, dysfunction, and disease.

By performing gentle adjustments to your spine and extremities, I can correct the subluxations and restore the normal function of your nervous system. This allows your body to heal itself naturally and optimally without the use of drugs or surgery. 

With chiropractic care, you can experience benefits such as: 

  • Reduced pain and inflammation 
  • Increased range of motion and flexibility 
  • Improved posture and balance 
  • Enhanced immunity and vitality 
  • Better sleep and mood 

Prevention of chronic conditions and injuries 

With our care, you can do what you love again, whether playing with your kids, gardening, hiking, or golfing. You can also enjoy a higher quality of life and well-being. 

Our clinic differs from other clinics because we treat you as a whole person, not just a collection of symptoms. We take the time to listen to your concerns, understand your history, and assess your condition. We also educate you on how to care for yourself and prevent future problems. We are here to support you on your journey to health and happiness.
