Low Back Pain Project

The Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE) has been selected to host a two-year pilot project aimed at improving access to and availability of health care services for more Ontarians who suffer from low back pain.

To meet these needs, the CSCE has hired chiropractors and purchased specialized equipment to provide treatment, assessment, reference and education services.

In the pilot project, which runs from 2014 to 2018, chiropractic services are provided at the Cornwall and Alexandria sites.

Strong demand and good results led to the ongoing renewal of this initiative which, since the spring of 2018 has been an integral part of the services we offer.

This treatment includes:

  • A careful examination by a chiropractor to determine if the problem is related to muscles or joints or is caused by some other health condition, referring the patient to a doctor or other health professional if appropriate.
  • Personalized treatment of the spine, muscles and other structures involved.
  • Exercises and recommendations to achieve the fastest possible healing.
