British Columbians agree that chiropractors are the most trained and trusted professionals in the field of spinal care.* In addition to treating back pain, chiropractors have a unique expertise in preventive care to help your spine last a lifetime.
Every morning when you look in the mirror, you see your teeth, your eyes, your hair and your skin. But what about the 24 vertebrae that make up your back and neck? You may not be able to see it or touch it easily, but that doesn’t mean you are immune to back pain or spine conditions. In fact, these condtions are so common that one in every three medical office visits is for back and neck concerns. Most of us don’t even realize how important our spine is to our daily health, at all stages of life.
Chiropractic wellness is for those patients who choose to go the extra mile to give their body the best chance for better health and wellness.

The Goal of Chiropractic Care
Our primary goal is to improve the function and alignment of the spine and of the nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly, you are better able to express that potential and beauty within you. Your body heals faster. You become more aligned. Your muscle tension normalizes. You perform better.
After releasing the interference in the nerve system, we use techniques like Active Release Techniques, Graston Technique and LightForce Laser Therapy. These improve texture and flexibility, and speed up the healing process.
The secondary goal is to relieve pain. Typically when you restore function, the pain subsides for the right reasons. Pills, potions, lotions or injections can mask the symptoms, but they do not permanently solve the problem. When you improve the function, you relieve pain the right way.Chiropractic Care
