What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a scientifically based field of healthcare which restores and maintains the health and wellness of the entire body by focusing on the spine and the nervous system.

Our PROTx chiropractors provide diagnosis, treatment and preventive care. After taking a complete history and performing an assessment, your chiropractor will develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan. The most common reasons our clients come to see us is for back pain, neck pain, joint stiffness, alignment issues and sports injuries. Our chiropractic team can also assist with pre and post-natal care, TMJ issues and tailbone pain.

Clinic locations in Dartmouth, Sackville, Elmsdale and Stewiacke!

What Does Treatment Involve?

Chiropractic treatment is a hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach and while joint manipulation is a common technique not all chiropractic treatment involves this treatment approach. Our chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are based on the specific needs of the individual, including exercise prescription, soft tissue therapy, and lifestyle advice amongst other therapeutic modalities.

What Do Chiropractors Treat?

Chiropractors treat a wide range of conditions including those related to sports injuries, work related injuries, motor vehicle collision injuries, repetitive use injuries, chronic pain, TMJ dysfunction and concussions. Chiropractors are important members of our healthcare team and work to improve the overall health and wellness of all clients.


Frequently Asked Questions

You do not require a doctor’s referral to attend physiotherapy, chiropractic or massage therapy. However, if you intend to use your health insurance to cover the cost you should confirm your insurers policy as some may ask you for a doctor’s referral.

The advantage of choosing a service provider that works in a collaborative practice environment like PROTx is that regardless of who you see initially, you will always be directed to the most appropriate therapist. This team environment gives you, the client, the best possible options.

Your therapist will perform an assessment. You will be asked a series of questions that will help better describe all of your symptoms in detail. This will be followed by an examination of the areas causing concern and associated areas. Following the assessment, the findings, your goals and available treatment options will be discussed.

The first appointment can take up to an hour. Subsequent treatments can be shorter or longer depending upon the condition and the treatment required.
