Chiropractic Care in Downtown Kitchener Waterloo
Are you looking for a Chiropractor in downtown Kitchener? Welcome to kw health connection! The chiropractors at our clinic are leading edge manual therapists that use the most current and gold standard systems of diagnosis and treatment available today.
One of the challenges that manual practitioners have today is that there is an expectation to form a diagnosis around pre-set orthopedic tests. However, ‘orthopedic tests’ are designed, for the most part, for ‘orthopedic conditions’ by ‘orthopedic surgeons’ in order to assess if surgery is necessary. Therefore these tests are designed to pick up macro-injury to tissues. But, most manual therapists do not see macro-injuries. Instead, they are usually presented with repetitive strain injuries, cumulative trauma injuries, or sustained postural injuries. These are micro tissue injuries. Therefore the manual practitioner must determine the cause of a patient’s symptoms through their knowledge in anatomical structure and their hands!
Our chiropractors use functional assessment and a systematic approach to soft tissue palpation. Thus, the practitioner is able to delineate, feel, and assess specific anatomic structures. Therefore, we believe that we can use the necessary skills to isolate structures involved in clinical conditions. Subsequently, we can translate that knowledge into more specific treatment regimens.
As mentioned in Functional Anatomic Palpation Systems (FAP)TM :
“SPECIFICITY OF DIAGNOSIS = SPECIFICITY OF TREATMENT = SPECIFICITY OF RESULTS”
