Our Happy Humans
What can our Chiropractors help with?
There are several different areas that our chiropractors can help with. We have already highlighted a few of them, but here is a detailed view of the kinds of treatments our chiropractic team offers:
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is the hinge that connects your jaw bone to your skull. TMJ disorders (TMD) can be caused by overuse of jaw muscles, misalignment of teeth, teeth grinding or clenching, as well as poor posture, and stress. Chiropractic treatment for TMJ/TMD is a non-invasive way to realign your jaw, and relieve jaw pain.
Chiropractic treatment can help with dislocated shoulders, frozen shoulders, rotator cuff injuries, strains, sprains, and tenodonitis. Our team works with you through the assessment, planning, and treatment stages to get your shoulders back to full mobility.
Pinched nerves can be caused by poor movement, or from long term muscle, tendon, and ligament issues. Chiropractic treatment can help alleviate these symptoms.
This occurs when there is a slippage of your vertebrae. Spinal manipulation identifies the joints that are restricted or experiencing abnormal motion, and gently returns motion to the joint. Our team can help you to regain spinal motion and ease your discomfort related to spondylolisthesis.
Vertigo mainly manifests as dizziness that makes it appear as if everything surrounding you is spinning. Severe cases can prevent you from carrying out your daily activities and make it difficult for you to stand and move. If you’re experiencing vertigo, our team will help you to identify the cause and build a treatment plan to manage and improve your symptoms.
Torn ligaments in your heels can cause Plantar Fasciitis. If the tear is not treated, it could be uncomfortable for you to walk or stand. Our team of chiropractors can identify the root cause of this discomfort and work with you to decrease the severity of the pain you’re experiencing.
Your bursa is the small sac found in your joints holding the joint fluid. When it is inflamed, it could cause severe pain and discomfort. This condition is known as bursitis. Bursitis can be treated effectively using chiropractic techniques.
Our therapeutic treatment options can reduce stress by balancing your body’s energy, helping your brain and muscles to relax, and regulating the production of chemicals that trigger stress.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure in the wrist and median nerve, which causes pain, tingling, numbing and stiffness in the hand, wrist, and arm.
Anxiety is can occur for a variety of reasons. Acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic care can help to release tension and relieve emotion-related issues such as anxiety. Treatment can also improve blood flow to the body and regulate the heart rate so that you can remain calm even under stressful conditions.
If you experience dizziness or balance problems, sometimes a physical therapist can help you recover. We offer vestibular condition correction in Edmonton by helping our clients get to full recovery through simple procedures.
The primary goal with Vestibular Rehabilitation is to retrain the brain to coordinate information from the inner ear balance organs, vision, and the proprioceptive system (sensory receptors that are sensitive to stretch or pressure).
Neck pain can be caused by multiple factors, such as poor posture, over-strenuous movement, injury, worn joints, or even disease. We have several treatment options that can help you recover, by reducing stiffness and strengthening the neck muscles.
Shin splints are a common injury associated with running or other impact activities. The pain is typically along the inside of the shin or tibia which is amplified with impact. Several different factors can cause shin splints such as improper warm-up or cool down, poor footwear, repetitive stress, flat feet, or even a change in your workouts. There are many ways that shin splints can be successfully treated, including Shockwave, Graston, or Active Release. Restricting impact, stretching, foam rolling, proper footwear, and ice are important during treatment to get you back to your activities as soon as possible.
Sciatica is a nerve pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. Patients often report pain in the lower back and down the back of their leg. Numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness can also occur. Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis; a narrowing of the spine that can lead to compression of the nerve. Sciatica typically will affect one side of the body. Sneezing, coughing, and straining are often extremely painful with sciatica. Our chiropractors are fully equipped to assess and address irritations of the sciatica nerve.
A shoulder injury can leave you hurt and vulnerable to further injury. We have multiple treatment options for shoulder pain at our clinic. Getting treatment can reduce pain by relieving nerve compression, muscle strain, and joint pressure. You will have more range of movement and the shoulder joint will be more flexible.
Headaches are a common condition causing pain in the head, scalp or neck. They can vary from mild to severe and can have many different causes.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you're in a motor vehicle accident, you could sustain multiple injuries that can seriously impact your health. Untreated Injuries could cause extended chronic pain and hamper mobility. Chiropractic care can help you manage the pain, heal the injuries, and rehabilitate you to feel your best once again.
Aches and Pains
If you're experiencing regular or occasional aches and pains, chiropractic treatment may be the solution. By aligning your body's structure, your nervous system operates more efficiently. This can reduce these pains that you are experiencing. Chiropractic treatment is a way to ease your aches and pains, without the use of drugs or relying on surgical procedures.
Work Related Injuries
Work injuries may cause you severe discomfort, interfere with your flexibility, and make you less productive. You do not have to live with them. Whether you're dealing with a WCB claim or general work related strain, we can build a plan around your needs. Human Integrated Performance works with WCB and insurance companies to offer several direct billing options.
Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) are a set of more than 30 conditions that cause jaw joint and muscle discomfort. “TMDs” are disorders caused by the temporomandibular joint (“TMJ”). Everyone has two TMJs, one on each side of the head just in front of the ears. Muscles and ligaments surrounding and attached to the TMJ control its movement. Problems with any of these structures can lead to TMDs.
Look for a chiropractor that uses the diversified treatment style because it is evidence-based. You should be cautious of practitioners that overpromise or claim that they can cure serious illnesses. Chiropractors can provide a lot of benefits, but they cannot cure diseases.
Any age can benefit from chiropractic care. Babies, toddlers, and newborns can receive treatment for conditions. Babies can experience torticollis or a spasm in the sternocleidomastoid muscle that mothers notice during breastfeeding when a child can’t turn their neck. Children, adults, and seniors can benefit from chiropractic care.
Depending on the practitioner, chiropractic appointments last anywhere from eight minutes to an hour. For Dr. Joshua Konu at Human Integrated Performance he likes to have a minimum of 15 minutes. That gives enough time to do a reassessment and also to provide thorough treatment. For individuals with more than one problem, a 30-minute appointment or an extended appointment will allow enough time to treat multiple areas.
You can exercise right after seeing a chiropractor but keep in mind that your body might be hypermobile. For example, if you are doing sprints after an adjustment on your hips, your joints will be hypermobile. After 24 hours, you should be good to return to vigorous exercise, but keep it to low-impact exercise in the first 24 hours.
After an assessment, a chiropractor will find an area that’s locked up. Now, what most chiropractors do is adjust in extension and rotation. What Dr. Joshua Konu at Human Integrated Performance does is flexion and rotation to reduce any detrimental effects. Rotate the area that’s locked up and apply a high-velocity, low amplitude force to the area.
You should consider seeing a chiropractor if you notice that your joints are not moving well, locking up, or feeling ‘out of place.’ If you are experiencing these pains in your knee, foot, ankle, wrist, back, neck, jaw, or shoulder, you should seek a chiro for treatment.
Yes, a chiropractor can help with arthritis. Chiropractic care may not cure arthritis, but if you have arthritis and go to a chiropractor, they can help reduce the symptoms of your condition. A chiropractor can help reduce the inflammation in the joint space and help to improve mobility in the area affected by arthritis.
The chiropractic adjustment works by finding the joint that’s not working as it should, applying a high velocity, low amplitude force to the specific area to increase the joint space. Thus, forcing the joint to relax, improving mobility in the area, and stimulating blood flow to the affected area to promote healing.
When you first visit your chiropractor, you should expect to give a thorough history. You will then receive a consent form, which is consent to treat. The initial exam should include a physical exam, a range of motion test, and a neurological screen. After that, the chiropractor will do a thorough orthopedic screen to pinpoint the problem. After this, they will provide a report of findings and provide you with some treatment options. You will receive a personalized treatment plan. After the treatment plan is completed, the chiropractor will reassess to determine if the treatment can end officially or if additional measures are required.
