Chinook Rehab, located on Macleod Trail in SW Calgary, offers chiropractic care to help relieve your pain. Our clinic focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. The main chiropractor treatment involves manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), and manipulations of other joints and soft tissues.
Common Reasons to seek a Chiropractor
Restore Balance Within Your Body and Regain Optimal Functionality
We understand that you want to restore balance and functionality in your body, and we help you get there. Whether you’re suffering from physical, emotional, or mental stress the body reacts by letting your sympathetic nervous system takeover. Your muscles become tighter, your bones begin to become misaligned, and inflammation sets in causing pain and discomfort.
Relieve Chronic Pain
If you’re living with chronic pain, you know exactly what it is. Sometimes patients chalk it up to getting older, others think have to live with. But that isn’t the case.
Using advanced chiropractic techniques, we can help pinpoint and treat the root cause of your chronic pain, not just the symptoms. This allows you to address your chronic pain in a proactive manner, not a reactive one.

Motor Vehicle Accident or other Sudden Injury?
Frequently we work with patients who have suffered a motor vehicle accident or other sudden injury. Whether you’ve been hurt playing sports or suffered an injury in a car crash, seeking chiropractor care can help eliminate the intense pain and discomfort you’re feeling almost immediately.
By treating the root cause of your injury, we can help ensure you don’t end up suffering more in the future or experience a loss in functional mobility due to your injury.
Alleviate Tension, Irritation, and Pain
When an area in your spine is misaligned or not moving the way it should tension, irritation, and pain occur as a result. By either using their hands or a hand-held device, our chiropractors can restore proper spinal motion and alignment. This results in the irritants being reduced, or wholly eliminated.
If left unchecked, spinal misalignment or irregular motion can lead to a drastic decrease in your quality of life. It can also lead to osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis.
By thinking the pain will just go away eventually, you could be putting yourself at future risk for spinal dysfunction or chronic pain. This could prevent you from enjoying the activities you love most, like playing golf or being active with your children.
Active Release Therapy
Using a combination of manual manipulations and movement, Active Release Therapy (ART) helps break up the painful scar tissue and releases the restrictive adhesions from your muscles.
Scar tissue and muscle adhesions form during the body’s natural healing process. When you suffer an injury or illness, the body responds by quickly repairing the affected area to restore mobility and stop further damage. Part examination and part treatment, ART pinpoints the exact area which is causing you discomfort or inhibiting your range of motion.
By utilizing the advanced techniques of chiropractic care you can restore balance between your two nervous systems. This will lead to better communication between your brain and body, which helps reduce inflammation, pain, and muscle tightness. By reducing these symptoms — or altogether eliminating them — you’ll be able to enjoy a life you once knew before pain and stiffness overtook it.
