The Active Care Spine Center providing chiropractic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, sports rehabilitation, core strengthening, massage, and ergonomic consultation is unlike any other clinic.  At the Active Care Spine Center we believe that expert care, education, and self-empowerment are the keys to our patients’ success.  We provide our patients with the knowledge and tools they need so that they may be pain free and healthy.   Our goal is to positively affect our patients’ health long after their treatments have ended.

Not all clinics approach pain the same way.  At the Active Care Spine Center we believe that pain is just the symptom and that lasting and permanent relief comes from identifying and treating the underlying cause.  We emphasize functional restoration, early reactivation, core stabilization, gentle exercise, and activity modification. 

Throughout treatment, we reinforce self-sufficiency and teach coping strategies necessary for managing pain on a daily basis.  At the Active Care Spine Center, we focus on educating our patients on the nature of pain; changing attitudes and eliminating fear avoidance behaviors. We teach skills that can be easily learned and instantly applied outside of the clinical setting.  Our unique approach delivers quick and long lasting results.

Here at the Active Care Spine Center, we continue to stay current with the medical literature.  We incorporate evidence from a variety of disciplines including chiropractic, acupuncture, neurology, sports medicine, orthopedics, psychology, physical medicine, and physical therapy.

Our approach to evidence based care we are ahead of the curve.  We use outcome measures that have been shown to be valid and reliable in tracking patient progress.  We communicate regularly with our patient’s medical doctors and provide regular outcome reports that demonstrate efficacy of care.  These tools provide an excellent measure
through which success of treatment can be established, holding our care accountable to you – the patient.
