What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of both muscles and joints, including the effects of these disorders on your nervous system and overall health. Chiropractors recognize that the body has the natural ability to fight disease and achieve a state of health and therefore use neither drugs nor surgery in their treatments. Many factors can be responsible for your discomfort. Dr. Lisa of Cabana Chiropractic and Health Centre is interested in detecting, reducing and preventing the cause of your pain. Chiropractic care is a natural approach to better health that is proven safe and effective.

Chiropractic treatment is performed by manipulating or adjusting spinal misalignments, thereby restoring movement to fixated spinal joints. Just about everyone is a candidate; infants, children, seniors and everyone in between. If an adjustment is contraindicated, other methods of treatment will be performed or a referral will be made to a specialist. Naturally, chiropractic adjusting procedures are modified to suit each patient for maximum comfort and results. Chiropractic care is a natural approach to better health that is proven safe and effective.
A Variety of Treatment Methods
To maximize treatment outcomes, in addition to spinal and joint adjustments, state-of-the-art equipment, including ultrasound therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, TENS, laser therapy, ice or heat, will be incorporated into your care plan. Dr. Lisa may also suggest acupuncture and soft tissue (muscle) therapy prior to your chiropractic adjustment.
New to the clinic is Radial Shockwave Therapy, a non-surgical treatment that aids in the elimination of chronically injured tissue by breaking it down and then further regenerating new and stronger muscles, ligaments and tendons. We also offer spinal decompression therapy to relieve pain related to protruding or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, facet joint disorders and compression fractures. At Cabana Chiropractic and Health Centre, we believe it is important that sufficient time is spent with each patient.
Your First Visit
Every patient presents a unique condition. Our goal is to detect, reduce and prevent the cause of your pain. Dr. Lisa evaluates each patient thoroughly and will develop an individual course of treatment. Your initial visit consists of a health history, orthopedic examination and a report of findings. At this time the doctor will present her diagnosis, describe what treatment will be best suited for your condition and entertain any questions you may have. If further testing, such as x-rays, are not necessary, treatment will begin your very first visit. We are committed to ensuring that you understand what exactly is about to take place as we commence therapy, thus allowing you to make informed decisions and actively participate in your health care.
