Chiropractic Care: a combination of manual adjustments and soft tissue release.

About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a primary-contact healthcare profession in BC that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal systems of the body. 

It is a hands-on, non-invasive, drug-free practice that diagnoses, treats and prevents a variety of neural and musculoskeletal conditions, with the main goal of optimize body’s movements and joints’ mobility, through a combination of manual adjustments and soft tissue release. 

Chiropractic Care is a regulated profession, overseen by The College of Chiropractors of British Columbia. A licensed Doctor of Chiropractor is trained to perform chiropractic adjustments safely.

Legacies experienced Doctors of Chiropractic offer services across all Legacies locations: Burnaby-Market CrossingNorth Vancouver, Surrey-Nordel and Surrey-Southpoint.

In your first appointment, your Chiropractor will perform a comprehensive assessment (physical and medical history), and provide you with a diagnosis and explain the recommended treatment. Your Chiropractic will evaluate if this treatment is recommended for you. When appropriate, chiropractors refer patients to medical doctors or other health practitioners for additional treatment.

Keeping current with the latest methods, our Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to give you the best chiropractic treatments for many types of pain and joint-related problems. Chiropractors treat many conditions affecting the nervous system and musculoskeletal system, like:

  • Arthropathies, tendinopathies, sprains and strains
  • Postural issues and conditions
  • Neuralgias (nerve pain)

Before Your Appointment

If there are any specific preparations required for your appointment, you will be advised prior to your appointment day. If applicable, please bring along any diagnostic test results you may have had done in the past (X-ray, MRI, CT scan, etc.)

Your First Appointment

Please arrive 10 minutes earlier to your scheduled visit to complete a “new patient form” to gather initial information about your concerns and prior medical history. This information will be updated when your Chiropractor goes through the assessment and ask you questions about your current issues.

Your first visit consists of a comprehensive assessment, where you Chiropractor will get to know you better through the collection of your medical history and a physical examination (posture, movement, muscle tone, and neurological signs and symptoms). 

Your Doctor of Chiropractic will provide you a diagnosis and explain the recommended treatment for your condition, individualized needs and goals. If needed, and to help you achieve better results, your Chiropractor may refer you to further testing or imaging, or to other therapists at our clinic.

If time allows, your first visit will also include a treatment.

Subsequent Appointments

The chiropractic treatment itself is individualized and very specific to your diagnosis and health history. Using manual (hands-on) techniques, the chiropractor will manipulate soft tissue and joints to influence healing and return your body to a state of pain-free function. These chiropractic techniques are non-invasive and most often painless. Your chiropractor will reassess the results from the treatment, and will provide you with home-care methods to optimize results, which often include heat/cold techniques and specific exercises.

Your Chiropractor will constantly re-assess your condition and make any adjustments required to the treatment plan. 

At the end of the session, you will be reminded to book your follow-up appointments, when needed. You may do that with your clinician, call one of our locations, or book online.

After Your Appointment

Although most patients feel improvement after, it is normal to feel some soreness or tenderness in the areas worked on for a day or two following treatment.

You will be advised by your chiropractor on what home care to do following your visit. This may include heat or ice, exercises, stretches, and certain postural changes.
