What is Spinal Manipulation?

Spinal manipulation is hands on technique that provides a quick stretch to the joints of the spine that in turn causes a crack or pop sound.

The sound you hear is actually a release of nitrogen gas. It takes 20 minutes after a joint has been cracked for that gas to build up again before you can manipulate the joint again.

When a joint is manipulated and the gas is released little receptors in the joint and tendon are stimulated which in turn causes the muscles overlying that area to relax for approximately 15 minutes.

During this time we hope that the muscles go back to restful state. It’s kind of like restarting your computer when it is not working properly.

Contrary to popular belief no joints actually go out or need to put back into place or are out of align. These are all myths.

I am so glad that I started seeing Mary at this clinic. Prior to beginning treatment here I had pain between my neck and shoulder for over three years. I had seen several other medical practitioners for this specific issue with minimal success. I experienced immense pain relief after my first treatment with Mary. I have only good things to say about this place.read more

Seriously... getting treatment from Mary Wong Colebrook felt like a miracle. I've had physio, massage, naturopathy, accupuncture, you name it, from many awesome practitioners for various issues over the years and can honestly say I had hands down the best treatment I've ever had. Mary identified the issue almost within seconds and the treatment plan had me go from barely able to walk to being back in motion again in no time at all. Customer service is slso excellent here ... great front desk staff!read more

I would highly recommend Nick Friesen. I've been working with him over the course of a few months, with a back/neck injury and he has been nothing but a miracle worker. I tried so many different physiotherapists and Nick is the only one who could actually help me. He's very very knowledgeable and just an all around great guy with a positive attitude! I look forward to my sessions with him. I'm sure any of the physiotherapists at broadmead physio are just as great. Bonus that the receptionists are super helpful and very polite!! Always so friendly!read more

My husband (big fan of hockey) found this physio by Googling and booked for Ian (His profile shows Ian used to be a physical therapy consultant to the Edmonton Oilers!). I had a major accident last year. I can walk on my own again without any devices because of Ian’s help and guidance. He is indeed honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, helpful, and has a good sense of humour. He sends me follow up emails to ensure that I don’t forget my training menu at home. I have never seen such a dedicated therapist in my life. The physio office is always really clean and all the receptionists are helpful. Thank you.read more
