Posture is the expression of how our body is aligned and balanced. It is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves and our environment. Read more
Because injury is the number one cause of neck pain, neck pain with headache will also likely be generated by an injury of some sort. This, however, is only a general rule and there may be other causes. Since most other common causes will be less critical in their long-term ramifications compared to injuries, which generally have immediate and long-term effects, it is important to seek appropriate diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible.

Defined by one of the Medical Dictionaries, “Chiropractic is from Greek word meaning done by hand. It is grounded in the principle that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous system is functioning properly. To achieve this, the practitioner uses his or her hands or an adjusting tool to perform specific manipulations of the vertebrae. When these bones of the spine are not correctly articulated, resulting in a condition known as subluxation, the theory is that nerve transmission is disrupted and causes pain in the back, as well as other areas of the body.”
Simply put his means that on a daily experience you may experience pain, swelling, and inflammation within areas affected by the subluxation (vertebrae that are out of place, twisted to the right, left, up or down). It also states the chiropractor will work to correct the subluxations using, most frequently, his hands, although he may also use an adjusting implement made specifically for gentle chiropractic corrections.
Chiropractic care is one of the most widely recognized and accepted forms of pain reduction therapy world-wide. Read more
Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents, especially ones that involve a rear end impact. It can also result from any accident in which the head and neck are thrown rapidly forward beyond their normal limits and then jerked quickly back. Whiplash can occur as a work-related injury, during participation in sports, and even on some amusement rides.
When a person gets a whiplash injury, it can cause a host of problems. Headaches, pain the neck and shoulders, dizziness, jaw pain, and even depression and confusion can result. It can be debilitating. Yet it is very hard to diagnose and prove because it is a soft tissue injury. It doesn’t show up on an x-ray or an MRI like a broken bone or a muscle tear does. A doctor diagnosing whiplash has to do so based on the circumstances of the accident, direct palpation of the injured area and analyzing the symptoms resulting from it. Read more
Full-contact sports frequently leave athletes with bone and muscle injuries that require a physician’s attention. Whenever a member of the Vancouver Canucks’ roster takes a hard check or gets one too many haymakers in a scrap, they visit a team chiropractor in order to set their body right. After-the-fact care, however, is only one part of a chiropractor’s treatment. Preventative care beforehand can minimize the harm that a hockey, football, lacrosse, or rugby player takes when they get into the game, while regular maintenance of muscle groups keeps minor damage from growing into a major concern. What aspects of sports medicine do chiropractors specialize in? Read more
Instrument adjusting in a chiropractic practice is the use of a mechanical devise that emits a quick, precise force that may be directed to an articular joint or muscle of the body. Similar to a chiropractic manual adjustment that is performed using the hands, instrument adjusting aims to restore the body’s balance and function and relieve pain.
The practitioners at the Vancouver Spine Care Centre use the electrically controlled “Impulse” adjusting instrument that is designed by Neuromechanical Innovations, the leading authority in the field of instrument adjusting. Born out of more than a decade of research and engineering, the Impulse adjusting instrument features new wave technology tuned-in to the natural frequency of the body that joints, muscles and nerves respond to, resulting in efficient and effective chiropractic adjustments.

The chiropractic profession has evolved significantly over the past few decades and has gained support from the public, and from medical and other health-care practitioners. Research initiatives, improved standards of education and an emphasis on evidence-based practices are solidifying the role of the chiropractor as an integral part of the health-care team in Canada and in many other countries around the world. Current trends in health-care funding, and a limited supply of primary care medical physicians, have created both an opportunity and a dilemma for the practising chiropractor. The opportunity is the fact that patients are seeking alternatives to a family medical doctor; the dilemma is that, more often, they are presenting to a chiropractor with complex health complaints necessitating advanced diagnostic protocols, co-management with allopathic providers and referrals for secondary or tertiary care.
There have been recent changes in the legislation of the practice of chiropractic in British Columbia. To paraphrase, in B.C., chiropractic means “the health profession in which a person provides, for the purposes of promotion, maintenance and restoration of health, the services of . . . advice and counseling on matters related to the condition of the spine or other joints of the body and the associated tissue, the nervous system and the overall health of the individual.” Read more
When looking for chiropractic care, it is very important to find practices that offer only “evidence-based”treatments.These kinds of therapies have several advantages over any other types of treatments, such as those based on anecdotal evidence: “My aunt tried this and it worked for her.” Sorting fact from opinion is too difficult for individual practitioners and for their patients.
“Evidence-based” chiropractic therapies means that the treatments offered have undergone scientific testing and research, including clinical trials. Read more
When you are in pain, you want relief, and terms like “chiropractic integrative care” don’t seem important; however, these words are important. It’s a care label that encompasses the idea of treating the whole patient with all forms of care available so that full healing and full functioning can be restored as soon as possible. That’s the kind of help everyone wants and needs!
Good health, after all, isn’t just the absence of disease, pain, stiffness, or impairment. It means you are well physically, mentally, and socially, and that goal is at the heart of chiropractic integrative care.
Spinal stenosis is effectively treated by chiropractic treatment method. This is considered as one of the best method for treating the condition of spinal stenosis. It involves a non surgical process to treat the condition and thus is popular among the patients. However, it is beneficial only if you get treated by a reputed practitioner. Dr. Dean Greenwood, for years has been treating patients suffering from several conditions arising from spinal stenosis.
Spinal stenosis causes several other complications like, back pain and pain in the legs. In the initial stages, the pain is mistaken as some other disease. And since it is difficult for general practitioner to diagnose the condition, therefore, it is advised to consult a chiropractor. Moreover, other treatment procedure, involves painful surgery that also has certain side effects. But, chiropractic treatment is both effective and also is free from any sort of side effects.
