ABOUT DR. JANIS GUTHY – YOUR CAMPBELL RIVER CHIROPRACTOR
Do you suffer from a herniated, protruded, or degenerative disc? How about acute or chronic back or neck pain? Do you suffer from whiplash due to a motor vehicle accident or a work injury? Perhaps you have elbow or wrist pain due to a repetitive stress injury.
Dr. Janis Guthy, a Doctor of Chiropractic with more than 40 years of experience, can help. And in the process, she wants to change the way you think about Chiropractors.
“Chiropractors treat more than just back strain, “she says. “The conditions we see range from back strain to headaches and sprained ankles to carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis and more”. We also see a wide range of patients, from children to the elderly. She says that identifying and correcting minor imbalances early on can often prevent serious long-term conditions, including chronic pain.
Take your feet,” she says. “They’re the foundation of your body. If you’re walking improperly, it will eventually affect your ankles, knees, hips and back.” Custom-moulded foot orthotics, which Dr. Guthy can prescribe and make, can correct most gait problems contributing to other musculoskeletal pain.
If you have an ICBC or WSIB claim you may visit Dr. Guthy without a medical referral to receive Chiropractic or counselling treatment without any out of pocket cost. The same applies to people with WorkSafeBC claims and RCMP or Veterans Affairs coverage (Blue Cross). Treatment may be that of Chiropractic and or Registered Clinical Counselling.
Dr. Guthy has also added Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression and Laser Therapy to her practice. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression can relieve pressure on the spinal nerves caused by disc herniations, bulges and degenerative disc disease. It is helpful for conditions such as sciatica, facet syndrome, and spinal stenosis. Non-Surgical Spinal decompression therapy treats acute or chronic neck or low back pain associated with neurological symptoms.
