  • Understanding How Chiropractic Services Can Help

    What is Chiropractic?  Chiropractic is a natural practice dedicated to restoring and allowing the human body to fully restore and self heal through holistic and non-invasive means. At Victoria Family Chiropractic, although we examine jaws, feet, and shoulders, our focus is on your spine because the spine protects the nervous system and that's what runs the body.

    Did you know that your spine is formed from 24 vertebrae? Your spinal column is commonly thought to only help with posture and movement; however your spine plays a much larger role in the longevity and health of your body. 

    Problems can begin when vertebrae do not function as they should. This may be a result of something known as misalignment or subluxation. When the spine is jammed, stuck, or misaligned, it chokes the nerve transmission between the brain and body, which could result in a list of ailments and pain. The following are mere examples of what may be the result of a jammed or misaligned spine:

    • Back pain
    • Headaches
    • Neck pain
    • Sciatica/ Nerve Pain
    • Dizziness
    • Ringing in the ears

    Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of correcting misalignments/ subluxations through adjustments to allow healing and optimal health and performance. As your Victoria Chiropractor, our goal is to find those areas where the spine may be jammed or misaligned so your body can naturally heal and feel better.

    What Causes a Jammed or Misaligned Spine?

    If you are experiencing back pain, headaches, or other bodily ailments, it may be worth having your spine assessed. There are many reasons your spine may become jammed or misaligned. 

    Causes can range from:

    1. Stress
    2. Anxiety
    3. Car Accident
    4. Lifting Accident
    5. Trauma
    6. Repetitive Strain
    7. Poor Posture

    Who Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care?

    If you have not had your spine or back checked recently, you may benefit from visiting us and receiving a biomechanical or structural assessment. As a Victoria BC Chiropractor, my services reach across a wide spectrum of people and circumstances, including those suffering from lower back pain, neck pain, tension headaches or migraines and more.  

    The Health Benefits of Chiropractics

    There are more benefits to chiropractic services you may have not considered. While regular visits may help alleviate the proclaimed symptoms, chiropractors can offer numerous health benefits such as:

    • A Healthier/Stronger Body

    • Physical Performance
    • Better Posture
    • Stress and Tension Relief
    • Nerve Communication
