The Well Chiropractic Clinic provides evidence-based chiropractic treatment. The treatments that we provide are firmly grounded in science and clinical research. We follow protocols and guidelines set by Canadian and British Columbian chiropractic regulatory bodies.
Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractors focus on the assessment of joints, muscles, and tendons. Chiropractors, like other medical physicians, take thorough histories, and perform orthopedic testing before differentially diagnosing, estimating prognosis for full recovery, and formulating comprehensive management plans.
Educating and recommending specific therapeutic exercise and lifestyle guidance for your benefit is of particular interest to us.
There have been many scientific clinical researches assessing the appropriateness, effectiveness, and/or cost-effectiveness of chiropractic spinal manipulation on the following conditions:
- Back & Neck Pain
- Sciatica – pain down the leg
- Joint pain & stiffness
- Headaches and Migraines
- TMJ – jaw pain/clicking
- Shoulder and arm pain/tingling
- Hip and leg pain/tingling
- Whiplash injuries
Chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy is a safe and effective treatment and few other health care interventions have been assessed as extensively as chiropractic manipulation, both in terms of safety and effectiveness. There have been at least six formal government studies into chiropractic worldwide over last decade and all have concluded that chiropractic care is safe, effective, and cost-effective and have recommended public funding for chiropractic services.
Premium Assistance Medical Service Plans (MSP), Extended Health Plan coverage, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB, Worksafe BC), Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), and other insurance carriers all include healthcare coverage for chiropractic.
