Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord by the spinal column via the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities, whether occupational or recreational, can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position, motion or function. This can lead to pain and abnormal wear and tear.

History of Chiropractic

Hippocrates, the "father of medicine" said, "In all disease look first to the spine." Often neck pain, headaches, and low back pain can be directly related to problems with the spine. The spine is the protective bone casing for the spinal cord, a cable of nerves that act as the message or relay centre for the entire body. When one of the bones of the spine, a vertebrae, isn't moving properly or loses its normal function, the result can be irritation of a nerve and that may cause pain. Taking a pill only masks the problem. Chiropractors work to solve the problem. Chiropractors have spent over 100 years refining techniques that are proven to relieve the pain caused by spine and joint problems.

Massage Therapy

My name is Evelyn Harvey and I am a Registered Massage Therapist and owner of Mount Royal Professional Massage located within Mount Royal Chiropractic Clinic.

I received my massage therapy training at Mount Royal College in 2003 and began practicing massage at a sport & therapeutic massage clinic prior to working with Dr. Politylo at Mount Royal Chiropractic Clinic since 2004.

I am knowledgeable in Reflexology, for which I also received certification of high standing through Wild Rose College in 2004.

My treatments are insurance qualified, and I am a member of the Natural Healthcare Practitioners of Canada Association (NHPC #7946).

A previous medical career as a Medical Laboratory Technologist provided me with a deeper understanding of the body systems and to realize the impact of stress on our body chemistry. Massage is a powerful way to help people on different levels, whether you are looking for a relaxation treatment to de-stress, or deep tissue work for relief of pain or rehabilitation from injury or surgery, my skill and knowledge in Swedish and Russian massage is specific to your needs.

As a specialist in Corporate On-site Chair Massage, I invite you to visit my website at www.anywherechair.ca for information on how massage reduces stress, increases productivity and boosts morale in the workplace.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture benefits a great variety of ailments.

Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin at specific points on the body for pain relief and treatment of other ailments by balancing the body's energy flow. Often, you will not feel any sensation when the needling is administered.

The acupuncturist may also utilize electrotherapy, moxibustion, and cupping as auxiliary treatments.

According to the WHO, “Acupuncture has been proven effective in relieving postoperative pain, nausea during pregnancy, nausea and vomiting resulting from chemotherapy, and dental pain with extremely low side effects. It can also alleviate anxiety, panic disorders and insomnia.”

Dr. David He is trained in both western and eastern styles of medicine from China. He was trained as an orthopaedic surgeon, but in Canada, is practicing solely as an acupuncturist and is registered so in the Province of Alberta.

Dr. He has mastered treatments to help pain, smoking cessation, weight loss, anxiety, depression, insomnia, anosmia, menopause, and infertility.

The goal of acupuncture is to concentrate and enhance the patient's own natural powers of recovery, allowing healing to occur.

Call Dr. David He at 403-244-1600 for an acupuncture appointment.

Orthotics

Orthotics are designed to treat various biomechanical foot conditions presenting as pain either in the foot, knee, hip, and even possibly the low back.

They are ideally custom fitted and in my office, we take a custom impression of the foot in a semi-weight bearing casting material, and send the impression directly to the manufacturer for fabrication.

The prescription is analyzed by clinical staff and manufactured accordingly by the Orthotic Group in Markham, Ontario, managed and operated by podiatrists.

Care in proper fit of any device that applies force to the body must be taken to ensure good results and to prevent unwanted problems.

Functional correction of abnormal foot and ankle biomechanics is the ultimate goal of the orthotic, thus minimizing abnormal wear and tear conditions in the individual and patient.

The orthotics prescribed by myself are semi-rigid in nature, primarily casted in sub-talar neutral, focusing on restoring normal foot-arch mechanics.

Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored.

Please call Dr. Julian Politylo at 403-244-1600 for an orthotic consultation and pricing.
