What do Chiropractors do? 

In a nutshell, chiropractors locate and correct subluxations to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. This is done through chiropractic adjustments. When spinal joints become stuck, nearby nerve tissue becomes irritated, compromising neural integrity and organ system function. Chiropractors use gentle, targeted adjustments to restore motion to locked joints and jumpstart healing. 

Adjustments are an art form

Here at Live Well Family Chiropractic, our doctors are exclusively trained to deliver spinal adjustments, skillfully applying controlled force into the affected vertebrae of the spine, as well as the pelvic region. Adjustments are delivered using the hands or a specialized instrument. 


Whether Dr. Tara or Dr. Tessa give a quick, focused thrust or apply slow, constant pressure, it comes down to a precise amount of energy, directed to a specific spot, in the right direction, at exactly the right moment. Each adjustment builds off of the previous one, working to restore the connection between the body and the brain and helping you regain optimal health. 

Adjustments are absolutely safe, and many patients experience immediate relief and an overall sense of calm and wellbeing afterward. Chiropractic is even gentle enough for newborns, children, pregnant woman, seniors and surgery patients. Come by our Ajax clinic for an assessment and discover the benefits for yourself!
