What is Chiropractic?

FAQ ChiropracticChiropractic is a non-surgical drug-free approach to healthcare. Chiropractors use their hands to assess, diagnose, and treat various spinal and extremity conditions. Chiropractors focus on the assessment of joints, muscles, and tendons and their influence on the nervous system. 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. At Aquarius Chiropractic, educating and recommending specific therapeutic exercise and lifestyle guidance for your benefit is of particular interest to us.

Premium Assistance Medical Service Plans (MSP), Extended Health Plan coverage, the Workers Compensation Board (WCB), Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC), and other insurance carriers all include healthcare coverage for chiropractic. Kirkaldy Willis, M.D., world renowned medical orthopedist, joined David Cassidy, D.C., PhD. to do an evaluation of the clinical results of Chiropractic care on 171 chronic medically unresponsive low back sufferers for a period of 7 years. Within 3 weeks, Dr. Cassidy eliminated 87% of the ailments. It is significant to note that a reevaluation of these patients one year later showed that they remained pain free (1)! This suggests that the best route to recovery from low back pain and spine-related problems comes from chiropractors. For you, that means less time off work and to the Workers Compensation Board and employers, this means lower costs of compensation.
