The combination of joint manipulation and ART® enables the physician to address both soft tissue and bone/structural problems. Dr. Izard is also trained in the use of other techniques which may help in individual cases.  These include Kinesiotaping, Graston Technique and ultrasound.

Dr. Izard believes in the importance of educating patients on the cause of their condition and how to best prevent recurrences in the future. This includes home care instructions for their current injury (heat, cold, stretching etc) as well as good habits for long term health (diet, physical activity, sleep and stress management).

Many conditions develop due to a muscular weakness or inhibition. Rehabilitating the weak links aids in injury prevention and optimal recovery. Therapeutic exercises are prescribed to ensure that adequate strength, flexible and stability are achieved.

If your condition is likely to respond better to another type of care, referrals are made to other health care practitioners. This includes medical doctors, registered massage therapists, physiotherapists, naturopathic physicians, kinesiologists and others who best meet the needs of the patient.
