Dr. Beitel will explore the problems that are interfering with your health and through hands-on healing will work with you to eliminate them. After a chiropractic adjustment your body will be better able to heal itself. This, in turn, aids your body in maintaining optimum wellness.
Chiropractors understand that you are better off taking care of yourself before things begin to break down.

Types of Chiropractic Care
Just as there are various reasons for visiting a chiropractor, there are a variety types of chiropractic. The approach you take depends on what you are trying to achieve. Some patients simply want relief from pain. Others are looking for a way to stay healthy. In either case, chiropractic works.
Chiropractic addresses spinal problems (called subluxations or fixations) anywhere in your spine, not just in your low back. A spinal fixation exists where spinal bones become misaligned or lose their normal range of movement. These problem sites irritate or put pressure on local nerves that interfere with communication between your brain and body (and vice versa).
Dr. Beitel is highly skilled and uses gentle adjustments to try to reduce and correct unhealthy effects on your body. As chiropractic treatments progress, the spine and its nervous system can function normally again. ??At Wellness Ontario all chiropractic care begins with an thorough initial examination, after which x-rays may be recommended to determine the seriousness of your condition. In addition to being adjusted, you may be given exercises to do, diet suggestions and ways to improve your posture.
Relief Care is provided for acute pain and discomfort. Depending on the diagnosis, your age and physical condition, frequent visits over a relatively short period of time may be required.
Supportive Care is used to treat long-term spinal problems. Because the condition has existed for some time it requires a longer period of care, similar to crooked teeth slowly improving with braces.
Wellness / Preventative Care helps you retain the benefits youve achieved from the relief and supportive care. The goal of wellness/preventive care is to keep you as healthy as you can be in your day-to-day life through continued periodic chiropractic adjustments.
