img_1251-minWe focus on restoring the proper “ingredients” for health. Movement is hugely important to both health and performance. (Read more on movement under Chiropractic>Movement) This is why you hear sitting is the new smoking. Gross movement can often be improved with self-care, but specific small movement issues don’t respond the same way. We focus on what you can’t do for yourself to help you do what you can on your own better. Nutrition is also huge. Even some simple changes can go a long way to restoring health and function. Exercise is another pillar that helps to stabilize and maintain any movement improvements we can make. Giving your body what it needs to be healthy is a simple and effective way to improve.

We have a close group of practitioners that work together as a team to compliment your existing healthcare team. We want your family physician, physiotherapist or whoever else you have on your team to be able to do what they do best.

Chiropractic Move Better. Live Better.
Movement is life. Our Chiropractors focus on restoring proper movement and supporting that movement with, at minimum, exercise and nutrition. A joint/muscle, or whole body that is moving better and getting better nutrition is better than one that isn’t. We have great results with all kinds of chronic sports injuries, pain syndromes, other health issues and we have great results with people who don’t have any “problems” but who want to prevent movement issues or perform and recover better. There is a difference between moving and moving well. Read more under Services>Chiropractic

Chiropractic FAQ

Why do people see Chiropractors?

We see many people who have some sort of problem they are looking to address.  Knimg_1294-minee injuries, hip injuries, back pain, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, etc.  We also see a lot of people who have tried most everything else, because let’s be honest, a Chiropractor probably isn’t your first stop:)  At least not the first time.  More and more we see people who are looking to move better, perform better, and keep their body in the best shape possible.

Is Chiropractic care Safe?
Very safe.  The most common thing we see in the office is that things get sore after treatment for a day or two, particularly after soft tissue work like Graston or Active Release.  Find more on research on the safety of Chiropractic care under Chiropractic>Safety

Do I have to come forever?
Of course you don’t HAVE to do anything. Our goal is always to resolve any resolvable issue, but many people choose to continue to come to combat modern not-moving lifestyles, very active lifestyles or just perform better. There are lots of things you probably will, or should, do forever like brush your teeth or eat vegetables. So a better question would be is adding regular Chiropractic care (or Massage or Acupuncture for that matter) to my routine a good choice? 

Does it hurt?
The only thing that is consistently a bit painful is usually the soft tissue work, Graston or ART. Most commonly, adjustments just feel a bit weird the first time, probably because it is a bit weird. Sometimes they can be a bit uncomfortable, usually short term and similar to the feeling you have after a hard workout.

Do Chiropractors see children?
We do see children here of all ages, but the treatment for a young child is significantly different and much more gentle than for an adult. If you haven’t seen a small child get treated, it is typically surprisingly gentle.

Physio vs Chiro?
This is a very common and, to me, amusing question that we get, like it is some sort of UFC cage fight between two professions, which I just don’t get. We devoted an entire post to it HERE
Acupuncture uses sterile, stainless steel, single use needles inserted into the body at very precise points to promote healing.  Acupuncturists may use other modalities like guasha, cupping, infrared heat, and electro-acupuncture in combination as part of a treatment plan.

Does acupuncture hurt?
The acupuncture needles are very fine and bendable. There is usually only a slight pinch sensation and then a dull ache around the area. It is common to see a local redness around the needle even after they are removed from the immediate increase in blood flow to the local area.

Registered Massage Therapy
The Registered Massage Therapists at Redefined Health all offer various types of therapeutic massage tailored to your needs and individual goals. Soft tissue health and mobility is an important aspect of how well you move and massage can be a great compliment to both home and other in-office care.

Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is a wide and varied profession. At RH, Dr. Zubach-Cassano has a special interest in Prolotherapy for sports injury treatment as well as all kinds of women’s and family health issues. Read more under Services>Naturopathic Medicine

Custom Orthotics

Our approach to custom orthotics is simple.  We use a high-qualityy pedorthic lab to build quality foot support that will 100% of the time provide better foot support.  Looking at the entire bio mechanical chain is important, as foot orthotics, for example, will not make your hip or knee stronger and may not make them move better.  Read more under Services>Orthotics

Redefined Health has a team of  Chiropractors, Massage Therapists, a Naturopathic Doctor and an Acupuncturist who aim to provide the best evidence-based conservative care possible.  We work together in office and with the rest of your healthcare team.
