Simple Steps to a Better Back


Finding a chiropractor is easy.  Ask for a recommendation or visit the BC Chiropractic Association website to find a chiropractor near you.


To visit a chiropractor, you do not need a referral. Just pick up the phone and make an appointment. Many times, the chiropractor can see you within a couple of days, or even on the same day.


During the consultation the chiropractor may ask about your medical history and family history, lifestyle and work environment.  The chiropractor will talk about what may caused your problem, and how to get on the path to feeling better.


The chiropractor will check many things, including your range of motion, balance, and mobility. You may be sent for additional medical services such as an x-ray, MRI or CT depending on the nature of your problem.


The chiropractic treatment or adjustment will be fully explained by your doctor before it starts. You are in control, and your chiropractor works with you to correct problems, get you out of pain, or just maintain your good health.


Research says that most patients find a resolution to a specific problem within an average of 6 to 8 visits. You may choose to follow up to maintain a healthy and happy spine!
