Our doctors have extensive experience providing chiropractic care for people of all ages including infants, children, adults and seniors. Simply put, everyone with a spine and nervous system could potentially benefit from chiropractic care.
Chiropractors focus on your alignment and movement to treat the bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissues that you use every day. Proper alignment and movement provides physical stability, enables you to move your body, and protects your vital organs. This alignment and movement directly affect other vital systems in your body, which is why medical professionals, researchers, and the health community at large trust the spine care expertise of chiropractors to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions related to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) and injuries. For optimal health and quality of life, a chiropractor should be part of every Canadian’s healthcare team.
Approximately 1 million British Columbians visit a chiropractor each year!
Your feet are well abused, and often neglected foundations of your body. Our office provides Footmaxx custom prescription orthotic insoles as well as generic versions of inserts for your shoes or sandals to improve the movement and support needed to relieve pain in your feet, knees or back, or prevent these conditions in many cases.
If you are visiting a chiropractor for the first time, expect to provide a health history. This may include asking you about any illnesses, past surgeries, medications and other health issues.
The chiropractor will ask you about your pain and conduct a physical examination to assess and diagnose the problem. Sometimes x-rays may be required. Your chiropractor will explain the findings of the assessment to you and discuss the treatment recommendations, ensuring your consent to treatment is informed and your questions are answered.
