From auto accidents to repetitive movement strains to surgery recovery, Dr. Mark and Dr. Cory, along with their in-house team of professionals, can help you return to full function quickly and safely. If you are looking for a Langley Chiropractor, we’ve got your back (and the rest of your neuromusculoskeletal system, too)!

Chiropractic care, like any health profession, is continually evolving as new research and innovations come to light. Our Langley chiropractors believe strongly in continuous, life-long education. They regularly attend seminars, conferences, and online courses to ensure they remain at the forefront of chiropractic care. Delivery of the highest quality of care using proven diagnostic and treatment methodologies enables our chiropractors to help you recover faster and get moving again!

What does a Chiropractor do?

The short answer: Chiropractic care involves the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal injuries and dysfunction.

The plain English answer: If you sprained it, strained it, knocked it, pulled it, or it has just never felt right, come see a Chiropractor to help you relieve pain and find a solution suited for your individual need to help you feel better.

The long answer: “Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science. Although its main focus is the relationship between the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body.” – BC Chiropractic Association

What can you expect at your first appointment?

1. Introductions and History: After introductions, your chiropractor will ask you to give a detailed history of your issue or injury, along with other relevant information. It is important to understand how the injury occurred, in addition what was injured, as this can give insight into the nature of the injury.

2. Physical and Neurological Exam: Next, the chiropractor will conduct a thorough physical examination of the injury site and any related areas. This may include assessments of your quality of movement, strength, range of motion, and alignment. Your chiropractic doctor will also look for neurological symptoms that could point to an injury involving your nerves. This could include some physical tests such as leaning your body to one side and then the other, checking your reflexes, moving your arms and legs, or squatting.

3. Diagnosis: After the examination is completed, your chiropractor will discuss their diagnosis (what they believe to be the cause of what is giving you pain or discomfort) with you.

4. Treatment Plan: After diagnosis, you and your chiropractor will collaboratively form a treatment plan, taking into account your individual recovery goals and lifestyle. A treatment plan includes the methods of treatment, the number of treatments, and the estimated recovery time.

5. Informed Consent and Treatment: Once you understand your treatment plan and feel comfortable moving forward, your chiropractor will explain the informed consent form with you and request your signature before you begin any treatments. Informed consent is about ensuring you are clear as to the diagnosis, treatment options and anticipated outcomes of the treatments. Your chiropractic doctor will perform the first treatment, which may consist of a chiropractic adjustment. Adjustments are generally performed on a chiropractic table, similar to a massage table.

6. Prevention Methods: How did you end up in this situation? Your chiropractic doctor will help you identify the underlying cause of your condition, whether it is from poor posture while studying, a repetitive strain injury from the workplace, or some other cause. Your chiropractor may recommend lifestyle changes and/or strength and movement exercises for you to complete at home between treatments, to aid in your recovery. You may be guided through these exercises in the office, to ensure you are familiar and confident with them. The goal is to get you well and keep you well.

7. Referral for Other Treatment: Based on the findings from your Chiropractic, they may also recommend trying additional therapies at Rebound or other healthcare providers to assist in a full recovery and to prevent future injuries.
