Dr. Kahlid Mankal, an Ottawa chiropractor and owner of Barrhaven Family Chiropractic, announced that the practice has launched a redesigned website, The site now includes educational features, such as a wellness library, 3D Spine Simulator and blog.

"We redesigned our website in order to improve communication with patients and expand awareness about chiropractic care and a wellness lifestyle," said Dr. Mankal. "Many individuals who are suffering from pain and illness have never received care from a chiropractor before, and are unaware that this alternative to traditional medical care exists. Our redesigned website is a wonderful teaching tool for enhancing awareness so individuals can make an educated treatment choice."

The "Community Content" wellness library features articles on the history of chiropractic, the science behind chiropractic adjustments and how adjustments can provide correction of the underlying problem. The wellness library also includes information on the benefits of restoring alignment to the body's musculoskeletal system, and a wellness lifestyle that includes being fit eating right and thinking well.

"The benefits of chiropractic extend beyond pain management," said Dr. Surbjit Herr, a chiropractor with the practice. "Our natural healing approach to whole body wellness can also help treat children with ADHD, ADD and autism; reduce the incidence of acute earaches; and optimize overall health. The wellness library is a wonderful resource for educating patients about all the benefits of wellness chiropractic care."

Patients can also learn first-hand the importance of musculoskeletal alignment by using the 3D Spine Simulator. This new, interactive website feature lets individuals see how each vertebrae is connected to the health of the body's organs and nerve systems.
