What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an evidence-informed, non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

We encourage you to read the bios of individual chiropractors, or to speak with reception to find a good fit for you.

Direct billing for medical coverage

If you have extended health benefits, your chiropractic treatment will most likely be fully or partially covered.  We offer the convenience of direct billing at Geometry. Learn more on our direct billing page of contact us for details.
