What to expect!
A Chiropractor is a spine, muscle, joint and nervous system expert who applies the best available evidence and clinical expertise to diagnose health issues that affect your body’s biomechanics and nervous system. Along with the human body’s innate healing ability, chiropractic care helps relieve pain, restore function and maintain health. Using specialized manual therapy (adjustments) and other adjunct therapies specifically to the spine and extremities, chiropractors can help with many conditions.
Dr. Mike Kennedy has 30 years of experience working with the intimate relationship between the nervous system and the spine. On your initial visit, the Chiropractor will:
1. Perform a full history and an orthopaedic examination
2. Decide if x-rays or further diagnostic imaging is required
3. Formulate a diagnosis for your condition and recommend a treatment program
The treatment program will outline what chiropractic techniques are best for you and what is the expected time frame for you to reach maximum improvement.

Chiropractors are primary health care practitioners who utilize various treatment options to facilitate an employee’s return to work and who provide education on how to reduce the risk of further work-related injuries.
Regular chiropractic care for athletes has grown in recent years; treatments have been shown to improve performance, prevent injuries and speed up healing time for sprains/strains and concussions.

Your child’s spinal development is very important especially with children spending more time in front of the computer and playing video games. Children are carrying heavier backpacks at earlier ages which is causing aberrant postural changes. Spinal curvature (Scoliosis) starts in the early teen years and often goes undetected. Early treatment and regular spinal care are important factors in the successful management of scoliosis.
The Body & Mind are not separate. What affects one affects the other.
