Our Calgary Chiropractor At ProActive Health Group, believes that exercise and activity are the Fountain of Youth. There is plenty of evidence and research showing that eating right, exercising and enjoying what you LOVE in life is the key not only to maximizing the years of your life, but also the LIFE in your YEARS. Our goal is to allow you to continue the activities and sports that you enjoy, without the pain and discomfort that often accompany them as you age. As long as you continue to train and exercise, we at ProActive are your ‘Body Mechanics’ to make sure everything is moving smoothly. The top athletes in the world get regular treatment to keep them at their best; whether it’s returning from injury, dealing with the aches and pains of sports performance, or to ensure their body is in peak health. We know, we treat many of them. We are here for you every step of the way.
Our practitioners are all former athletes at various stages of competition over the years, and many stay active or still compete to this day. We create an environment that helps our patients work with their injuries, continue to stay active, and pick up their training where they left off without missing a beat.
Our main philosophy is something we call the Trifecta of Care; a combination of the following:
- Innovative and expert health care, based on evidence and real-world clinical experience
- Examining aggravating factors and looking at the activities of everyday life to determine where excessive stress and wear and tear is accumulating on the body
- Evidence based exercise programming customized to YOU, to identify imbalances, make lasting changes and prevent/minimize future injury
To make lasting, permanent changes in the lives of our patients, we analyze all possible contributors to your pain. We are a collection of the habits and routines that we perform every single day, and at ProActive we look to make simple, often easy corrections that add up in a major way over time. We address the subjective, objective and functional markers in the clinic and work with you to determine other areas of your life that may be contributing to the issue. We help you take stress off your body and mind by addressing aggravating factors that may be making your condition worse, or more likely to reoccur in the future. Finally, we help you make your body more resilient, address imbalances or asymmetries and make you a more robust athlete and patient overall. We believe that lasting changes take time, but doing it right the first time is worth it. Get a lifetime of benefit. Together, we help add life to your years.
Our sports focused Calgary Chiropractors employ a variety of treatment techniques and work closely with the other practitioners in the clinic to ensure that ALL aspects of care are addressed.
Our goal is to get a holistic, whole body, functional view of how your body is operating, where the strengths and weaknesses lie and where improvements can be made. We want to identify WHY our patients are having their issues, looking at underlying conditions, posture during sleep, work and activity, life stress, nutrition, exercise and stretching programs and deliver a whole body, comprehensive treatment plan customized completely to your needs. Our goal is to deliver long lasting relief from pain and tightness, as well as giving you the tools to prevent further asymmetries and pain from recurring, while maximizing your performance on the field, in the gym, on the bike path or simply in your everyday activities.
Our Calgary chiropractors work closely with alternative medical practitioners in our multidisciplinary clinic, including naturopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists to form a comprehensive healthcare team. Often many treatments are more effective when they are used concurrently with other forms of therapy, and we take advantage to deliver our patients long lasting improvement for their conditions. Our practitioners frequently collaborate to manage the conditions of our patients, giving a new perspective and a wide variety of treatment tools in our clinic toolbox to ensure the best outcomes for our patients.
Our primary treatment focus is restoring normal joint and muscle function and analyzing the factors that contributed to that imbalance in the first place. We help you identify those factors, modify or change activities as needed, and work with our patients to ensure that you can continue the activity that you love, without the pain and discomfort that often accompanies it.
Once pain levels become manageable and patients see significant improvement, we work with them to maintain that through lifestyle and regular treatment. Our wellness program helps you work through the bumps in the road that often accompany injury, and ensure that flare ups and setbacks are minimized. We give you the tools to modify your sleep position, your working posture and give you therapeutic stretches and exercises to continue to see long lasting improvement. We check in with our patients on a regular basis, determined by the severity of your condition and other confounding factors, to maintain their function and pain levels from month to month. Many patients find it much easier to maintain regular treatment frequency and not only see continued benefits in performance and lifestyle, but also prevent setbacks and flare ups of their condition. Instead of starting at square one every time the pain flares up, it becomes more manageable long term if our patients maintain a regular treatment frequency.
We at ProActive believe that movement is medicine, exercise is the Fountain of Youth and we want you to live in your 80’s like you’re 40 and your 40’s like you’re 20!
This is how we help our patients become Healthier, Together, For Life!
