Our approach to chiropractic is not traditional. Our chiropractors use a variety of techniques and modalities to address your condition. ART® is the most common modality used. This is a very effective, deep tissue technique that returns muscles to normal function. It is especially effective for repetitive strain injuries or to free up ‘sticky’ scar tissue that can impair muscle movement once an injury has healed.
Another important differentiation is that you will actually see your Chiropractor for 20-30 minutes. During this time, you are with your chiropractor and no one else.. We do not refer you to kinesiologists or therapist aids. Our philosophy in this regard is to give you maximum time with those with the greatest knowledge, with the goal of decreasing your overall treatment time. The great thing is that we know it works.
Lastly, we have experience and knowledge. We have been practising this evidence based brand of Chiropractic for over 10 years so we have a high degree of confidence in our ability to help. Quite simply, if we can’t help you we will refer you to someone who can. We want you to be well as much as you do.
In short, you will be pleasantly surprised by our refreshing approach to this service.
Physiotherapy is one of the most recognized forms of physical rehabilitation in the world. Overall, there is a trend in physiotherapy to shorter treatment times and work with kinesiologists. At Totum, we feel this takes away from the overall ability of the patient to improve. For this reason, we have 30 minute treatment times in which you will receive a variety of modalities, all applied by the expert your physiotherapist.
If you have come to see an expert, we think you should be seen by the expert.
