Chiropractic

The chiropractors at P.R.O. are primary contact health professionals that focus on the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal system (muscles, nerves, bones, and joints) conditions. They specialize in treating all regions of the body including but not limited to the spine, shoulders, elbows, and wrist and hands as well as the hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Our chiropractors use a combination of manual techniques as well as rehabilitative protocols to address pathophysiological tissue changes often resulting from suboptimal quality of movement and/or strength deficits. Some of the common manual techniques employed by our chiropractors include spinal and extremity manipulation, Active Release Techniques, Graston Technique, and Functional anatomical acupuncture. All of these techniques work in conjunction with appropriate exercise and movement prescription delivered by our chiropractors or experienced physiotherapists to correct movement patterns and restore tissue resilience resulting in optimal and permanent tissue recovery.

One of our chiropractors, Dr. Warren Hefford, is a Chiropractic Sports Specialist and has undergone an additional five-year Sports Fellowship Residency in combination with a two-year Master’s program to specialize in the diagnosis, management and treatment of athletic injuries. There are only approximately 100 Chiropractic Sports Specialists practicing across Canada.

Our chiropractors work extensively with their P.R.O. teammates as well as your current healthcare team to develop and deliver the best treatment plan for YOU. Chiropractic visits at P.R.O. include an initial visit and follow-up treatments one on one with your chiropractor that are tailored specifically to your recovery and treatment goals. Treatments typically involve a combination of soft-tissue manual therapy as described above as well as some form of corrective exercise prescription with the intent to bolster the effects of therapy and increase the overall tissue resilience.

NEW! Attention Golfers!

The Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) emphasizes the fact that there is not one way to swing a club but rather one efficient way for every golfer to swing a club. During a physical screen and swing analysis we will look at how your body moves specifically for golf and how that affects your golf swing. The physical screen involves gross movement tests focusing on mobility, stability, balance and neuromuscular control. Using video and basic launch monitor data we will assess your swing in combination with your physical screen and we will determine the most efficient plan for your recovery and optimizing performance.
