A chiropractor is a doctor who specializes in treating neuro-musculo-skeletal (nerve-muscle-joint) problems and educates patients in ‘wellness.’ They are primary care providers like MDs and dentists, which means you don’t have to be referred by your family doctor to see us, you can just call to book an appointment yourself.
A chiropractor does some things that medical doctors and physiotherapists also do, but they also check the function of the joints in your spine and correct abnormal movement of those joints found to be not moving properly (i.e. dysfunctional). At Alberta Back and Neck Rehab & Sports Injuries Clinic in Calgary, our focus is on rehab of chronic and severe neck and back pain.
I had tried acupuncture and physiotherapy, and I had looked into most other treatments for my pain, before finding out about the DRX 9000. Basically, I haven’t had leg or back pain since the second decompression treatment. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
I ended up with 2 herniated discs, L4 & L5, and hadn’t worked for three months. It was very debilitating. Within two weeks of starting DRX treatments, I was doing really well. I am really tickled with the results.
Before I went to Alberta Back and Neck Rehab & Sports Injuries Clinic, I had low back pain and severe sciatica pain shooting down my leg, all the way to my calf. I went in to see Dr. Oliphant, and signed up for treatment on the DRX program. Within the first two treatments, my pain was immediately reduced to 3/10. By the time I was done the full 20 treatments, my pain was down between 0.5/10 and 0/10, and has remained. Now I do all the athletic activities I did before, but now I don’t take any of them for granted!
