Did you know?..

Many people think Chiropractors can only work on sore backs or necks.  In reality a full diversified trained Chiropractor can work on most of your body from your feet all the way up to adjusting your ears....Yes...your ears:)

 

The word Chiropractic means "done by hand" in the literal translation. The philosophy is to keep your body in proper alignment so your nervous system has no restrictions with communicating with your body. This allows your body to heal itself or reduce inflammation without the use of drugs. 

Prince George Chiropractic

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.

Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a complete history and diagnosing a patient, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

For many conditions, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.
