Our Approach to Chiropractic

One of the beauties of chiropractic care is the different ways we can achieve the goal of caring for the patient. At Orchard Chiropractic & Physiotherapy, Dr. Barnett and Dr. Bortolon are skilled in the use of multiple techniques which allows them to be flexible to address each patient’s needs in a way that best suits their case.

Our Chiropractic ApproachWe believe it’s important to educate our patients on why we are performing each adjustment. And we’ll explain how our adjustments help to restore the joint mobility which is normal and healthy throughout your body.
