PT’MOVEMENT Wellness Centre Offers Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a patient-centred, non-invasive, hands-on healthcare profession focused on your spine, muscles, joints, and nervous system.
Every client has a story.
We’re not sure what experience you do, or don’t have, with chiropractic treatment as the profession itself is rapidly developing. It has become a far more evidence-based healthcare practice in recent years.
Chiropractic treatment at PT’MOVEMENT is backed by science and research and fully integrated into our clinical practice alongside physiotherapy and GYROTONIC® movement modalities.

The most commonly asked questions…
What is that POP I hear during an adjustment?!?
An adjustment is just a high velocity, low amplitude thrust targeted at a specific joint segment to help increase mobility and decrease pain.
During an adjustment, you may hear a loud popping sound, or what we call cavitations. The joints being adjusted are synovial joints, which means that they contain something called “synovial fluid” surrounding the joint to help lubricate it.
Think about opening a can of pop. When you crack the can open, it quickly lowers the pressure inside of the can as the gas rushes out, thus creating that loud hissing noise. During an adjustment, the joint is separated very slightly, causing a drop in pressure in
the synovial fluid between the joints – the release of a gas bubble – and that signature “POP” sound.
What is the difference between physiotherapy treatment and chiropractic care?
Both are evidence-based healthcare professions with many similar treatment interventions. The truth is that they have more in common now than ever before. Chiropractic medicine has evolved greatly. Presently, chiropractors are trained in a variety of other evidence-based approaches to spine and joint conditions.
