Chiropractors practise a non-invasive, drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the neuro-musculoskeletal system as a whole. With the information collected from physical assessments and patient history, chiropractors are able to provide a differential diagnosis for the patient’s presenting condition(s) and develop a comprehensive treatment/management plan. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercises, utilize other non-invasive therapies, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counselling.

Spinal Manipulative Therapy

Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) is the most common form of treatment utilized by chiropractors in clinical practice. It is a non-invasive and manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed through four years of intensive chiropractic education. SMT is a carefully controlled procedure delivered by a skilled practitioner to treat a dysfunctional spinalor extremity joints. The primary goal is to decrease pain and improve areas of reduced segment, joint,and supporting tissues. This helps to decrease muscle tightness or spasm through the restoration of normal mechanics and improve functioning of the spine. It is important to stress, however, that this procedure is considered to be only one of many tools that can be applied as a therapeutic intervention to help with recovery and is not used in every case.

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a health professional trained in the science of nutrition and health. Dietitians must complete an accredited degree in food and nutrition and supervised professional training followed by a licensing exam in order to be registered. Dietetics is a regulated profession, so only dietitians registered with provincial regulatory bodies (In Ontario, The College of Dietitians of Ontario) may use the titles “dietitian,” “registered dietitian (RD),” and “clinical dietitian.”
Successful diet counselling is all about active and reflective listening, reading body language, and working with clients to come up with practical, realistic, small, and sustainable changes that can be followed long term. An understanding of both scientific evidence and what is currently “faddy” or a hot topic in the media can help dispel myths, and promote healthy habits that are long-lasting. Most dietitians do not believe in diets, and some don’t even weigh clients on a regular basis. You could think of a dietitian in private practice as a “food therapist.” Dietitians need to know more than just what a person eats, but also what their lives look like, and how they feel about food and their body etc. because people’s relationship to food is incredibly primal and often affects all aspects of their day-to-day lives.
We cover:
• General healthy eating advice
• Weight loss or management
• Weight gain
• Picky eaters
• Food allergies/FPIES
• Infant nutrition (feeding, growth, introducing solids)
• Vegetarianism/veganism (for children and adults)
• Iron deficiency anaemia
• Eating well during pregnancy and breastfeeding
• Sports nutrition
• Eating well with chronic disease
..and more!

Our movement therapy includes education on anatomy of the region, rationale for doing the exercise, stretches, strengthening, postural exercises, and self-massage/release techniques to manage pain. Quality of movement is often more important than the actual movement and practicing the exercise in a one on one setting gives many opportunities to ensure the exercises are performed with proper form and technique using minimal equipment. Our movement therapists help empower patients by discussing anatomy and educating patients about their bodies.

Synergy's Pelvic Health Program takes an integrated interdisciplinary approach towards comprehensive rehabilitation of pelvic floor dysfunction.

What is pelvic floor dysfunction?
The pelvic floor is a hammock of muscles, tendons and ligaments that support the pelvic organs such as the bladder and uterus. It is also involved in controlling continence and the maintenance of a healthy sex life. Women more commonly have pelvic floor dysfunction due to childbirth trauma and menopausal hormone changes. Pelvic floor dysfunction also occurs in men, often due to prostate conditions. Like any other area in the body, some of the muscles may be tight and need to soften and lengthen, and others may be weak and require strengthening.

How do I know if I might benefit from Synergy's Pelvic Health Program?
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be experiencing pelvic floor dysfunction and may benefit from Synergy's Pelvic Health Program:
Pelvic Pain
Urinary Incontinence
Constipation
Coccyx (Tailbone) Pain
Sexual Dysfunction
Pregnancy and Postpartum-related lower back pain
Painful Pelvic Scars / Adhesions
Uterine or Bladder Prolapse
Low Back or Hip Pain that is not improving with treatment

You may also benefit from assessment and treatment if you are experiencing symptoms that you have attributed to another condition, such as a prostate disorder, or if you are pregnant or postpartum. Some of your symptoms may be due to these conditions, however they may also be caused in part by pelvic floor dysfunction. For example, at Synergy we have noticed a correlation between non-resolving lower back pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. If you have received treatment for your lower back pain and it has not resolved, you may benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy and/ or osteopathy.

Synergy's Pelvic Health team includes:
Physiotherapy
Osteopathy
Massage Therapy
Movement Therapy

Do I have to see all the members of the team?
You will only work with practitioners that would be helpful in your specific case. You would usually begin with an appointment with a pelvic health physiotherapist. Together you would decide whether referral to another practitioner on the team would be helpful.

Is assessment with the physiotherapist always the first step?
If you have had abdominal surgery, a difficult labour and delivery, or a history of gynecological or kidney conditions, then you may benefit from having osteopathic treatment before seeing the physiotherapist.
