Services & Techniques

"To the man who only has a hammer in the toolkit,

    every problem looks like a nail." - Abraham Maslow

The Doctors at River Park South Chiropractic  are trained in a wide variety of treatment methods so that each patient's treatment can be tailored to their needs and requirements. Below is a sampling of the different treatment methods we offer in our Winnipeg office.

  • services_chiro.pngChiropractic Care
    We provide advanced spinal correction in our Winnipeg practice utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
  • Chiropractic and Kids
    Children love us.  Kids respond quickly to chiropractic care.  We tailor our services to meet the smaller frame and tolerance of a child.  It is a pleasant and helpful experience for them and they learn about their own anatomy and how to better take care of themselves while attending for chiropractic care.  
  • IFC.jpgPhysical Therapy Modalities
    We augment the effectiveness of our services using adjunctive biomechanical and electric modalities such as intersegmental massage, spinal traction, Interferential Current and TENS, etc.  Additionally we employ specific soft tissue manipulation techniques that are advanced and clinically proven to reduce fibrosis and adhesions associated with scar tissue formation.  intersegtx.jpgWe fine tune our treatment protocols to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible for his or her unique health condition.
  • Corrective Exercises
    We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises services_lifestyle.pngcan be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%.    While we prefer to personalize and prescribe specific exercises to our patients, a partial listing of our recommended Rehabilitation Exercises can be viewed from this website by our members who have logged in.
  • Acupuncture
    Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific places on the body called acupoints. Only disposable sterile acupuncture needles are used. It is used mostly for treatment of acute and chronic pain, muscle spasm, tenderness and headaches. Each acupoint lies within the skin and muscle region and is related to the location of pain. The needles may be stimulated by hand or electrical stimulation, or heated locally. there often ineedles.jpgs a dull ache or sensation of heaviness (referred to as 'chi') with needle manipulation, but the entire procedure is relatively painless.  Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's neuroendocrine system to produce its own natural pain relieveing chemicals called "Endorphin". Endorphins help the body to heal itself and are excreted by the brain into the circulatory system.  At River Park South Chiropractic Center, acupuncture services are performed by Dr. Audrey Toth, D.C., C.A.F.C.I.  The 'C.A.F.C.I.' indicates that she has fulfilled the necessary requirements to become a certified member of the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada institute, recognized by the Manitoba Chiropractors' Association.  She is pleased to provide this helpful service to our patients by appointment only as an alternative modality for pain relief and restoration of normal function.  For more information on our acupuncture services, please contact our office.
  • Rehabilitative and Reconditioning Services
    Our Winnipeg office is well equipped with free weights, a CYBEX multistation gym, and an upper and lower body ergometer for cardiovascular conditioning.  The use of the rehabilitative training programs have been very successful in returning disabled patients to their pre-accident status or simply to help them regain their strength and endurance to resume their normal activities of daily living, including work.

    For many years our team has prescribed and casted for customized orthotic shoe inserts or customized orthotic footwear.  This has been especially of benefit to patients who are required to wear steel toed footwear for their employment.  All of our patients attending for foot problems receive an extensive consultation and treatment program for their particular condition.  We review not only the problem, but also seek to find what may have caused the problem and offer our advise and expertise to ensure that once it has been resolved it doesn't return again.  We are also pleased to offer Robeez Infant and Toddler Footwear to our clientele in order to make sure that the next generation gets off on the right foot as well.

    films.jpg xray.jpg
    Patients have enjoyed our in house x-ray facility.  We also have accepted x-rays to review from outside local offices.  We are very interested in minimizing x-ray exposure and will only recommend that our patients have x-rays when it is absolutely necessary.  Benefits to have x-rays include the ability to visualize the location of spinal problems, reveal pathologies and degeneration, show a history of spinal stresses, confirm other examination findings, make your adjustments more precise, and record structural and functional progess.
  • Nutritional Counseling
    We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients' return to optimal health.  While we offer what our research has led us to believe to be the best line of pharmaceutical grade products available, we feel it is our job to provide guidance in terms of what supplements may be appropriate for our patients - where they get those products is their choice.
  • Orthopaedic Supports, Braces and Products
    There are occasions when supports such as lower back support belts, elbow braces or knee braces are deemed useful in speeding up recovery or making symptoms more bearable following injury.  Our doctors personally ensure that patients receiving supports or braces are properly fitted for their item.  We also prescribe and issue orthopaedic cervical pillows, ergonomic enhancing supports that fit over car seats or office chairs, and ice packs when required.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I would like to thank Dr. John for helping me get moving again. If it wasn't for your help I'd still be sockless. I'd also like to thank Dr. Audrey for introducing me to the nearly instantaneous relief of acupuncture and helping me walk without pain again. You two have to be the most caring couple ever. I would have never gotten this far if it wasn't for the two of you. I can't thank you enough."
    - D.M., Winnipeg / Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "For years I suffered with foot pain that made each step a misery. Dr. John found the problem and he has helped me fix it. Getting customized orthotics for my shoes was an improvement and a treatment plan for my feet keeps me going completely pain free. I really like how Dr. John's office can accommodate my busy work schedule to fit in my treatments."
    M.C., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "I have seen chiropractors all my life. Some chiropractors can be very rushed or very rigid in terms of what types of care they will offer or recommend. The care I received at this office was above and beyond anything I had before. I appreciate the availability and the consistency of care options."
    A.D., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • "When I had my car accident, I was shocked at how much pain I was in. I could barely move my neck. Dr. Audrey was there for me. I was surprised at the effect that chiropractic care had on helping me to recover. It seemed that when I would start to stiffen up again, chiropractic treatment would settle things down right away. And this was a really good thing because I couldn't afford to miss opportunities or any time from work. That was two years ago. Even now that the accident case has closed I still see Dr. Audrey every month or two just to keep feeling good."
    C.C., Winnipeg/Winnipeg, Manitoba
