The word chiropractic comes from Greek words meaning "treatment by hand", which is exactly what chiropractors do—they use their hands to manipulate the body and promote healing and wellness. Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially of the spine but also for muscles, joints and nervous system. Our chiropractors are uniquely qualified to evaluate your condition and identify what’s causing your pain.
Based on the best available evidence, combined with their clinical expertise, your chiropractor will then work with you to determine the best treatment to relieve your pain. They will also help prevent it from returning and restore your mobility.
Sports Chiropractic doctors treat much more than just the spine. As primary contact healthcare professionals, chiropractors help improve the interaction between fascia, nerves, muscles, ligaments, bones, joints, skull, pelvis and spine. Practicing a non-invasive approach, our chiropractors use a hands-on techniques to treat and prevent injury and illness related to the neuromusculoskeletal system.
At AWC we use a modern approach to chiropractic care following an integral model of medicine, creating holistic, efficient, effective and long-lasting treatment plans that have empowered patients across the globe.
Movement is not just about your ability to complete tasks on a daily basis-it’s also about maintaining health and longevity, preventing and/or rehabilitating injury, and gaining confidence. In order for your body to function reliably and efficiently, under a range of challenging and unpredictable conditions, it’s important to strengthen your muscles. By improving stability, coordination, and balance, you ultimately reduce your risk of injury.

If you are ready and empowered, contact us at the clinic to book your appointment with Dr. Janine. We will email you a comprehensive health history form that you can complete in the comfort of your own home. The initial appointment is about gathering as much information as possible to assess the interconnectedness of your symptoms. After completion of this visit, Dr. Janine will recommend any conventional or functional labs needed. Educational handouts and basic programming will be emailed to you for review.
Note: If a physical exam is warranted, an in-person appointment may be necessary. If further workup is needed outside the scope of practice, Dr. Janine can provide the referral.
Dr. Janine will create and develop a customized program that is specific to your needs, goals and barriers. The plan will include information from the history, previous and new labs. The program design and lab interpretation typically takes 2-6 days depending on the case. This session will focus on program and lab review to discuss how your results coincide with your individual needs, current lifestyle, budget and goals. Dr. Janine will draw out a roadmap and explain things that may be affecting metabolism, detoxification pathways, hormones, gut health, nutrients etc. Your customized plan may include foundational and targeted supplement protocols, dietary interventions, exercise and various lifestyle recommendations. Everyone is on a different journey and Dr. Janine will do her best to meet you where you are so that you can take your health to the next level.
Follow up appointments can vary anywhere from weekly, to bi-weekly to monthly depending on your functional medicine program and your specific needs. Health coaching may be of interest to those that need continual, on-going support. Coaching is done on a monthly basis with weekly check-ins, on-going support for upgraded health that may include dietary changes, home assessment, food label reading, exercise progressions, supplement review and other program updates.
This will be discussed in your second visit.
