To our amazing patients at Movement Health!

Protecting you is a top priority. Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in Canada and worldwide, our office is currently open and seeing patients on a limited schedule. This is in order to help with the healthcare efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

If you are entering our clinic for an appointment, we will be asking you the following questions:

Have you travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days? Have you been in close contact with a person who has a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19? Have you been in close contact with a person with acute respiratory illness, who has recently travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days before their symptoms started?

If you answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, we will unfortunately be unable to treat you.

If you answer “no” to all of the above questions, we will ask that you either take sanitizer or wash your hands before entering the treatment room area.

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual, hands on approach to muscular dysfunction, pain and injury by providing a diagnosis after a comprehensive evaluation. Treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints is then recommended and may include referrals to other healthcare disciplines including but not limited to primary care physicians (family doctors), physiotherapists, dieticians etc. or modification of activity and even referral for additional imaging studies to be completed (Xrays, CT scans, MRI, diagnostic ultrasounds etc.). Dr. Kivisto will work with your other health care providers to enhance your treatment when necessary.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.
