3 Benefits of Chiropractic Care
This blog post explores three benefits of the chiropractic care we perform at our North Vancouver chiropractic clinic. Read this post if you’re interested in learning more about chiropractic care and what a chiropractor can do to help your personal situation.
Here’s a preview of this chiropractic care blog post:
Chiropractors are best known for safely and effectively treating acute back and neck pain, as well as headaches. Whereas a medical doctor might prescribe pain medicine, muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory drugs, and an orthopedic doctor might suggest surgery, a chiropractor will treat your back problems by hand, through manipulation of the spine.
Chiropractors bring the musculoskeletal structure into proper alignment. Chiropractors change the position of your body and apply pressure to particular points along the spine that are not properly aligned. This results in a popping noise similar to the one created when you crack your knuckles. The noise is created by a change in pressure in your joints as gas bubbles are released.

Here’s a preview of this blog post for new chiropractic patients:
Your first visit will be a lot like a first-time visit to any new doctor. It’s likely to include:
- A health history. You will probably fill out a long form of questions about your health. The chiropractor may also ask additional questions, such as whether you have headaches or migraines or sleeping problems. He or she may also ask you about your diet and your activity level.
- A physical exam. The chiropractor may check your posture, looking for things that aren’t normal, such as one shoulder or hip that is higher than the other. The exam may also include a muscle test. This involves pressing an arm or leg against the chiropractor’s hand to test strength. You may also walk a short distance so that the chiropractor can check how you walk or other arm or leg movements.
When the chiropractor has all the information, it’s time to sit down with you and talk about treatment. If the treatment plan includes spinal manipulation, you could have it the same day or at a later appointment.
