Why see a chiropractor?
The answer to why see a chiropractor depends on you. If your life is disrupted due to back pain, neck pain, headaches, sprains or strains, or another problem involving your muscles, joints, and nervous system, chiropractic care can help you feel like yourself again. Injuries to the spine can happen at any stage of life and for various reasons including car crashes, workplace incidents and sports injuries. Even simple everyday tasks such as going for a walk or washing the dishes have the potential to cause pain or discomfort that many of us just decide to live with. Sometimes these aches and pains even prevent us from working or doing the things we love. You don’t have to live with the pain.
Chiropractic can help you recover from these conditions and addresses the underlying cause of the pain. It is one of the fastest and most effective forms of care available to address spine and spinal related problems. As an active participant in your health, you also have a role to play in your recovery outcome. From posture correction to stretches and even nutrition advice, your Doctor of Chiropractic will walk you through a comprehensive treatment plan to help you get well and stay well.
Chiropractors are primary healthcare providers that have the skills and expertise to address these concerns. You do not need a referral from a medical doctor to see a chiropractor. In many cases, coverage is available through ICBC, WorkSafeBC and extended health plans to help pay for your treatment costs. Visiting your chiropractor at the first sign of injury or pain will put you on the path to a quicker recovery.
