Our services are broad-based, both in terms of treatment and patients. Seeing that Velji Chiropractic Centre is a family chiropractor, we treat patients of all ages. Not only do we treat back problems through adjustments, acupuncture, and massage therapy, we also handle foot problems. We offer custom orthotic inserts and specially-made sandals to ease foot pain
In addition, we have state-of-the-art equipment that some other chiropractic offices don’t yet offer. For instance, our surface electromyogram (SEMG) can determine if you have suffered nerve or muscle damage by showing electrical activity in your spinal muscles. We use the SEMG during our initial assessment. We also offer laser acupuncture (acupuncture without needles) and have a massage therapist on site.
We offer the following Services:
Comprehensive initial assessment including thorough medical history and physical examination
Surface EMG (non-invasive diagnostic tool for initial diagnosis)
Treatment on first visit, unless initial assessment shows underlying medical issues
Custom orthotic inserts, shoes & sandals
Registered massage therapist
Treatment of everything from sports injuries to chronic back pain
Pre-natal and deep-tissue massage
Laser Acupuncture //
Although we still use needle acupuncture (which usually is painless), we are proud to offer laser acupuncture, a relatively new treatment. Laser acupuncture replaces traditional acupuncture needles with low-energy laser beams directed at the appropriate site. Dr. Velji may aim the beam at the acupuncture site for a period of time ranging from 10 seconds to a couple of minutes. The laser acupuncture beam, radiating from helium and neon, applies heat to the point.
What can Laser Acupuncture treat? //
Laser acupuncture has been found to be effective in the treatment of such maladies as tennis elbow, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic headaches in children, and even stroke paralysis. Laser acupuncture stimulates acupuncture points just as the needles do, increasing cell production in tissue. This process leads to a reduction in swelling and better blood flow, speeding up the recovery process. It increases endorphin and serotonin release, which relieves pain.
How does it feel? //
You will experience no pain during laser acupuncture treatments and probably will feel very relaxed. Many patients report a feeling of
well-being after a laser acupuncture treatment.
All in all, laser acupuncture is said to be a very pleasant experience.
