Her practice is diverse and she enjoys treating entire families especially women, babies and children. Pregnant women have seen positive results from techniques used by Dr. Joelle to reduce uterine constraint and give relief from back pain and other discomforts of pregnancy. Babies, toddlers, children and teenagers benefit from regular kid's chiropractic care due to continuous growth and developement.

Dr. Joelle has participated in three different Practice Based Research studies. The first involved pregnant women and the Webster Technique which helps to reduce inuterine constraint and to optimize proper baby positioning for labor and birth. The second study involved chiropractic and children's health in collaboration with the ICPA. The third was a pregnancy based study of chiropractic care.

Pre-natal chiropractic care, post-natal chiropractic care, pediatrics, orthotics, motor vehicle accidents, falls, slips, sports injuries, WCB related accidents as well as regular maintenance are some of the other areas that Dr. Joelle will be happy to help with whether male or female, young or old.
