Experienced Chiropractor, Dr. Robert Rhind

Offering Highly Effective Treatment for Back Pain in Lorne Park

Chiropractic care is the method of natural healing most chosen by those seeking complementary/alternative health care for acute and chronic conditions. It focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic physicians practice a drug-free and hands on approach to health care, most commonly through a method called ‘spinal manipulation’.

This includes restoring joint mobility by manually applying a force into joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. Chiropractic care restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

According the Annals of Internal Medicine, recent studies show that spinal manipulative therapy performed by a chiropractor, along with exercise, relieve back pain more effectively than medication.

Meet Dr. Robert Rhind

I was drawn to chiropractic at a young age after witnessing firsthand the impact it had on a family member.

Mississauga Chiropractor, Dr. Robert Rhind

After failing to respond to conventional interventions, I was genuinely amazed at how effective the hands on, natural drug free approach of chiropractic was on impacting her health.

Growing up, I was very active and suffered a couple of sports injuries that responded well to chiropractic care. After the pain was gone, I was surprised to discover that continued chiropractic treatments not only prevented further problems, but actually helped me to perform better – and without it, I was not as fast or efficient as an athlete. As a result, I grew to appreciate the various ways that chiropractic can benefit individuals. “It’s not always just about the pain.”

I trained at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, England. I was taught and inspired by some of the best chiropractors in the world and graduated in 1992. At first I practiced in England, then Vancouver British Columbia before coming to Mississauga. Over the last nineteen years, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of people suffering from spinal problems, headaches, whiplash injuries, injuries of the extremities and tendinitis, children and adults with scoliosis, disc injuries and TMJ problems”.

Success Story:

My son was born with hip dysplasia and torticollis. After just one year being treated by Dr Rhind and other alternative medical practitioners, the doctors at Sick Kids were shocked and impressed at his speedy recovery. He is now 2 years old and running, jumping and climbing, keeping up with his older brother and cousins.

Thank you Dr Rhind,

Stella H.

Modalities

laser-therapy

Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy, or low-level lasers (LLL), is a non-invasive treatment that creates impulses of light at a specific wave length which reflect through the skin and allow for maximum absorption of energy.
Treatments and benefits include:

  • acute and chronic joint pain
  • tendon and muscle strains
  • soft tissue injuries
  • reduce in inflammation
  • tendonitis and arthritis

Ultrasound Therapy

ultrasound-therapyTherapeutic ultrasound is a non-invasive way of administering medications below the skin. The technique emits energy forces via vibrations of the crystal that is inside the probe. The vibration causes deep heating which encourages healing of the area, however, it is usually not felt by the patient.

Benefits include increases in:

  • healing rate
  • tissue relaxation
  • tissue heating
  • local blood flow
  • scar tissue breakdown

Shockwave

Shockwave on LegShockwave is a non-invasive treatment that involves the distribution of different pressures in space through wave propagation. When the shockwave reaches the tissue, the kinetic energy is absorbed, and force is produced. The energy promotes the regeneration process of bones, tendons, and other soft tissue. Shockwave therapy is its own treatment and helps treat lingering injuries.

Medical Effects of Shockwave:

  • New blood vessel formation: waves create micro ruptures in tendon and bone which increases blood flow
  • Reversal of chronic inflammation
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts: waves break up the calcification which is a result of micro tears and trauma
  • Dispersion of pain mediator: shockwave mediates the “substance P” which is the neurotransmitter that is associated with pain
  • Release of trigger points

Shockwave on ShoulderShockwave treats the following conditions:

  • Trigger points
  • Myofascial release
  • Tennis elbow/ golfers elbow
  • Patellar tendinopathy “jumpers knee”
  • Hamstring tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome “Shin Splints”
