Use Chiropractic Services To Relieve Pain
Your body’s ability to function at its best is only as good as its ability to receive and respond to messages from your Nervous System. The brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves comprise the nervous system. This is your brain at work; as the computer and the wiring that monitors and regulates the entire body; by assisting the nervous system to work better, chiropractic adjustment can help the entire body to work properly.
Our Chiropractic Services will have you feeling your healthiest. Our Chiropractic teams in West Vancouver and Port Moody are constantly striving for excellence through personalized one-on-one patient care and ongoing professional development.
In general, Chiropractors take a drug-free, manual approach to health care through the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and subsequent prevention of conditions relating to the neurological, muscular and skeletal systems of the body.
What to expect in the first visit?
A thorough initial assessment is performed to identify the underlying cause of pain and/or dysfunction. The Chiropractor will then discuss and explain your diagnosis and treatment options, as well as answer any questions you may have.
What kind of treatment can I expect?
Treatment can consist of one or any combination of the following: Active Release Techniques (ART), Spinal Manipulation, PNF stretching, soft tissue treatment, deep tissue massage, rehabilitative exercise prescription, core training instruction, and physical therapy modalities (Ultrasound, electric current, Low-Level Laser therapy, Microcurrent therapy)
Do Chiropractors just treat the spine?
No! They specialize in treating all regions of the body including injuries to the shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists, hands, and feet.

Is rehabilitation really that important?
Rehabilitation is an integral part of any injury management treatment plan. Rehabilitation can include strengthening, stretching, motor re-programming, core training, balance or proprioceptive training, and sport specific exercise. It is utilized in order to reduce pain, return tissues to their pre-injury state, and to prevent further injuries.
Are Chiropractors Regulated?
Chiropractors are regulated, primary health care practitioners who have undergone over 4,500 hours of academic and clinical education at a nationally accredited chiropractic college, after having completed a minimum of a bachelors degree of undergraduate university education.
