There are three types of Chiropractic Care available at Health-Performance Chiropractic
Relief, Maintenance or Wellness care...it's your choice.
Maintenance Care in Hamilton East
Similar to the dental check-up – maintenance care is designed to monitor weakness areas in the spine and nervous system and help the body to correct these problems as they arise. Again, we will do our best to meet these needs while also encouraging patients to develop a greater understanding of their health and performance potential.
Wellness/Performance Care in Hamilton East
Most of our patients choose this type of chiropractic care. We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic wellness care. Our aim is to see our practice members evolve from the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms or injury to appear and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness/performance model, and re-claim their health and performance destiny.
You’re the Boss
Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we are here to help you. You’re the boss! We acknowledge that everybody is unique. It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible, and it’s up to you to decide which type of chiropractic care best suits your specific needs.
We use a number of highly-effective approaches to help improve your body function. The approach we use is based on our judgment, your body's response to tests and years of experience.
