Get Your Better Back, Back.

Advanced Diagnostics.

Our chiropractors use myoVision surface electromyography (sEMG) technology during the first visit and at every progress exam.  These diagnostic tools accurately detect invisible sources of stress and tension in the nervous system, which can lead to back pain and lowered stress resistance. These tests deliver immediate feedback and provide additional objective findings that are compared as the patient progresses through care. These tools have been thoroughly studied and the reliability of both thermal scanning and sEMG are supported by various peer-reviewed scientific studies. In combination with the history and physical exam, the thermal scanner and sEMG help the chiropractors at Reed Family Wellness Centre have a thorough understanding of your condition and how to help you.

Pain Relief.

The practitioners at The Wellhouse are determined to get to the root cause of your pain and symptoms. With this knowledge and with the implementation of our treatment plans, your quality of life can change for the better, for good. In the meantime, however, we understand that symptom relief is important to you so that you can go about your daily routine. You will notice that along with our corrective care plans we have many natural pain-relief options, ranging from the gentle techniques of our acupuncturists to the natural supplements offered by our naturopaths, to the immediate relief resulting from a chiropractic adjustment. You can rest assured that you are in good hands with each member of our team, and that your well-being is first and foremost in their minds.

Functional Rehabilitation.

Once you have completed the acute phase of care with our team, you will be ready to lay the foundation for a stronger body.  Our practitioners are trained to analyze your daily routine, whether at home, work, or play, and recommend specific exercises that are designed to stretch and strengthen exactly where you need it.  Once you have implemented these simple exercises, your body will be better able to withstand daily stresses and strains, which in the past have added up to muscular imbalance, spinal stress and discomfort. Once you have mastered this phase of self-care, our team will have the next step ready so you can build upon your newfound strength, and be ready to face physical and emotional stressors like never before.
