A note from Dr. Canada:

I believe in treating the musculoskeletal system as a whole. I use a mixture of joint mobilization techniques, along with soft tissue modalities and home exercise recommendations for patient treatments. Patients are not put onto long term treatment plans. I feel that if we are helping the patient restore joint function and helping reduce muscle imbalances with soft tissue therapies and home care recommendations the patient should not need a long term plan. Most treatment plans consist of 2 weeks of initial treatments the the patient is moved to a maintenance plan.
