What We Do
Chiropractic Care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health and function of your joints, muscles and nerves. This is accomplished through the use of any or combination of any of the following:
Gentle joint mobilization or Adjustment
Soft tissue massage
Active release therapy
Ultrasound or Low-volt therapy (electrical modalities)
Our Goal is to restore the normal biomechanics to your joints and muscles, thus restoring normal movement, relieving nerve irritation, stiffness and pain.
Our commitment is to get to the source of your problem.
Up–to–date and innovative examination and manual techniques are used to help:
Increase activities of everyday living
We keep up–to–date with the current research, as well as with continuing education courses, so that we deliver the most current and effective treatment possible.

Will I Be Manipulated?
Though Chiropractic Manipulation is a safe, effective and generally painless procedure, some people are apprehensive about being manipulated. At the Kennedy Sheppard Chiropractic Centre we always take the time to thoroughly explain and demonstrate each procedure prior to performing it, to relieve any apprehension. If despite this, the patient indicates, that they prefer we do not perform a certain procedure, then we always respect their decision and use one of the many alternative techniques that are available.
After each treatment, we test to make sure positive changes have been produced.
Testing afterwards helps us deliver high-quality care and high levels of patient satisfaction. At the Kennedy Sheppard Chiropractic Centre we are not satisfied with just providing pain relief, but we try to get to the root of the problem and try to ensure the underlying problem is corrected. Without fully correcting the underlying problem, the chances for re-occurrence is increased.
We treat a variety of conditions affecting the joints, muscles and nerves from head to toe. Many times the source of a person’s discomfort is related to their workplace. The posture they maintain while working and/or repetitive nature of their work, puts undue strain on their neck, back, shoulders, arms and hands. This results in conditions such as: headaches, neck pains and stiffness, pinched nerves, shoulder pains, tendonitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, sciatica and back pains to name a few. We teach the patient proper ergonomic posture to help reduce the strain on their back, neck, shoulders and arms. This relieves pain and helps to prevent future injury.
We don’t just treat the pain, but try to determine the underlying cause.
Through treatment, exercise and postural retraining, we relieve not just the discomfort,
but the cause of the pain as well, thereby helping to prevent future re-occurrences.
The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will instruct his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease
