Spines are fickle beasts, easily irked by day-to-day situations such as slouching over a keyboard or being stepped on by a rhinoceros. Put your support beam back in whack with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a chiropractic exam, X-rays, and an adjustment at New Sudbury Chiropractic & Wellness Centre (up to a $115 value).
New Sudbury's licensed and experienced chiropractors straighten spines with customized chiropractic exams and adjustments. Forty-five-minute first-time visits commence with clients scribbling down their health histories and pommel-horse proficiencies so that doctors can tailor their back-whispering skills to individual needs. After chatting with clients about their current work and daily activity levels, doctors gently feel spines and muscles to assess posture and mobility before administering a subluxation scan, which gives a picture of how well the nervous system is communicating with the body. If necessary, computerized gait scans can supply more information on how clients can tweak their walking and standing to improve overall health and foxtrotting skills, and X-rays expose spinal misalignments. Finally, an adjustment adds increased range of motion to spinal joints via a specific force meted out by the doctor in a precise direction. All posture proteges can complete the X-rays and scans in the same visit, followed by a return to the clinic for their adjustment and a 30-minute follow-up appointment, during which doctors review examination findings and make recommendations for improving spinal health and winning hula-dancing marathons.
Dr. Sherrie Guillet at New Sudbury Chiropractic & Wellness Centre
Dr. Sherrie Guillet at New Sudbury Chiropractic & Wellness Centre poses a double threat to pain; she's both a chiropractor and an acupuncturist. Integrating those skills, she helps her patients alleviate chronic and acute pain, as well as a spectrum of ailments ranging from headaches to nausea. But for all of these health benefits, Dr. Guillet doesn't use any medication. Instead, she relies on the body's own healing capabilities, channelling chi with hair-thin needles or freeing up subluxations with spinal adjustments.
