Dr. Keith Tse, DC
Most people think that they should only come to a chiropractic clinic for neck and back pain. While it is certainly true that chiropractors are spinal specialists, the fact is today’s doctor of chiropractic is an expert in neuromusculoskeletal conditions. What does that mean? It means that within my own Richmond Hill practice, I see about 50% of spinal problems while the remaining 50% of my time is spent caring for patients with nerve, muscle or joint problems in other areas of the body. On a typical day, I will treat conditions ranging from migraine headaches to sprained ankles, torn rotator cuffs to osteoarthritic hips and carpal tunnel syndrome to plantar fasciitis…these in addition to your typical low back pain sufferer, sciatica patient and whiplash client.
Why have I chosen to have such a diverse practice?
Quite frankly, I find it more interesting that way. In addition, my own personal involvement in athletics naturally lends itself to a focus in sports-related injuries. And as I have aged through the years (and continue to do so), I understand the literal pains of getting older.
So chiropractic care with me at Meridian Spine + Sport can involve something as simple as a chiropractic adjustment where warranted. Or soft tissue therapy using myofascial release techniques or instrument-assisted Graston technique. Or maybe the use of state of the art low intensity laser therapy to reduce inflammation and help injured tissues heal quicker. And probably along the way, I’ll show you some specific stretches and exercises to further improve recovery and hopefully prevent the same thing from happening again in the future.
You are never too old, or young…to see me as a chiropractor. Remember the old adage, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Chiropractic is more than about pain relief or spinal health. It is quite simply about HEALTH – for both you and your family.
Whatever condition you are in, good or bad, these treatments and this process, is about you.
I look forward to meeting you and empowering you in your road to health.
