Our Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care at our Burlington-based clinic is used to treat the neuro-musculoskeletal system (the connection between the alignment of the spine and the function of the body) while providing the education necessary to empower you through your healing process.

Each client at Pillars of Wellness (Health and Wellness Centre) is unique, and that’s why we aim to take the time and effort to get to know you and your condition — helping you feel better while experiencing the most effective treatment possible. If you live in the Burlington area, give us a call or email us; we will be happy to help you.

Before Your Visit: Frequently Asked Questions
How Safe is Chiropractic Treatment?
Very safe. As a non-invasive procedure, it’s markedly safer than other forms of healthcare, such as treatments consisting of drugs or surgery. If you have any concerns, ask our chiropractor Burlingtonabout any risks associated with the specific treatment you are receiving.
How Often Do I Need to Continue to See a Chiropractor?
It will depend on your initial assessment and how well you’re doing after treatments. Note that it’s not necessary to see a chiropractor a few times a week if your condition does not require it. At Pillars of Wellness (Health and Wellness Centre), we offer an integrated care approach to help our customers recover faster through a variety of modalities and services that can aid recovery. For example, you may find it beneficial to work with both our chiropractor and physiotherapist to determine a treatment plan. Talk to our staff at our front desk for more information. Feel free to read our page on our website about integrated care as well.
Am I Covered by Health Insurance?
Most of the time, health insurance will cover this service. However, it’s always best to check first. Many of our patients are covered for chiropractic and can be treated in our health centre in Burlington.
Can I Benefit If I am Pregnant?
Absolutely! Chiropractic therapy is an excellent drug-free alternative to relieve spinal pressure and backache related to pregnancy. In addition, studies show that pregnant women who take chiropractic treatment decrease their labour time and require less pain control medication. We are also considered as a family chiropractic clinic or health centre.
Can Children Be Treated?
Yes, they can. Our chiropractor is certified and experienced in treating children. You won't find too many family chiropractic clinics in Burlington. Most chiropractors treat adults patients regarding pain or neck pain but not necessarily practice pediatric chiropractic care. Our staff ensure you receive the best possible service to improve your health overall.
