Chiropractic Care

At Hubbel & Johnston Chiropractic in Cobourg, we make every effort to evaluate your conditions and help you plan for a healthier and pain-free existence.  If yours is not a chiropractic case, we will refer you for appropriate health care. 
The Activator Method involves the use of a hand-held instrument providing a gentle, effective adjustment of the joints of the spine or extremities.  In conjunction with a detailed consultation and physical exam, this gentle chiropractic care may be the answer to your problems.
After your consultation and examination, hands on adjustments or soft tissue treatments may be provided to best relieve your condition and promote proper function.
Foot imbalances can cause biomechanical changes to your feet, knees, hips, shoulders and overall posture. Custom orthotics can be helpful when indicated, and we will provide a full exam to determine your specific needs. Orthotics can reduce chronic stresses in your whole body and are often a big help in holding spinal and joint corrections. 
We often think about babies as being SO resilient, but we sometimes forget how traumatic birth can be. Our Well Baby Check-up includes: 
  • Assessing your baby’s head to make sure that it is growing evenly after the skull has adapted to move through the birth canal
  • Assessing your baby’s neck, as the joints can be restricted (especially if babe was helped out with forceps or a vacuum!)
  • Assessing normal bowel movements and feeding
  • Assessing body symmetry (making sure babe isn’t favouring one side!)
  • Checking for tongue tie, palate symmetry for  proper feeding/latching
  • Assessing your baby’s milestones and reflexes to make sure that they are on track. We will keep checking these throughout their first year.
