Make Access Chiropractic and Wellness your choice for Airdrie chiropractors
Access Chiropractic and Wellness has the most experience in chiropractic in all of Airdrie; between the three Airdrie chiropractors Drs. Jacqueline Boyd and Paul Bajor we have over 35 years of experience. The doctors are well versed in virtually any musculoskeletal issue and have one of the largest family practices in Airdrie, seeing children from newborns to the elderly. There is very little that can surprise us!
The sole focus of Access Chiropractic and Wellness is to optimize your health. Getting out of pain is not good enough. Being just 'pain free' does not fulfill your life and the healthy lifestyle we want and YOU want to have. We are confident we can help get rid of your physical limitations, but our interest lies beyond pain.
We take the time to find the root cause. We have an extensive initial exam which includes using three scanning systems: one for your nervous system, one for your ranges of motion, and one for your feet and balance. Combined with a thorough history and physical exam we can create a plan of action that suits your health needs. However, because we do not have a subjective or 'pain-based' focus, simply having less pain does not indicate progress for us, and that is why we re-evaluate you on the sixth visit, re-scan you on the 12th visit, and continue with routine assessments. We are always happy when you tell us you are pain free but we are happier when you tell us you are living life more healthy!
Our clinic is a family based clinic, and you will see cartoon stickers and toys adorning both locations. We're not afraid of kids! Drs. Boyd and Bajor have two kids: Liam and Julia, so they know the trials and tribulations of common childhood problems and the stressors that they can experience. They are part of the ICPA, International Chiropractic Paediatric Association, and are proficient in the Webster Technique for in-utero constraint, often used in helping breech babies turn to proper head down position.
We're not afraid of runny noses or sneezing; our belief is that this helps build our immune systems even stronger! It's almost non-existent that any doctor cancels a day because he or she is ill!
