Prevention Programs

As experts in spine and musculoskeletal health, BC’s chiropractors are invested in safety and prevention programs to help British Columbians live pain and injury free lives. There are many healthy habits and small changes that you can make that can have a profound impact on your spinal health. Whether you are young or old, on the job or in the home, it is important to avoid situations that have the potential to cause injury.

The BC Chiropractic Association is proud to partner with like-minded organizations to provide these prevention programs to the public, free of charge. We continue to evaluate our current offerings and opportunities for new campaigns in an effort to support good public health. If you would like more information about one of or existing programs or have an idea for a new one, please contact our office.
