Burnaby, BC – Motor accidents, everyday physical activities, injuries, medical conditions, and repetitive movements impact a person’s function and physical/mental health. Traditional physicians recommend chiropractic care or physiotherapy for short and long-term solutions. On the surface, both fields seem similar, but there are notable differences based on technique, type of pain, and treatment areas. While there’s an overlap between chiropractic and physiotherapy, Cedar Chiropractic & Physiotherapy patients benefit from a team and multi-disciplinary approach to wellness. They understand the importance of self-care to provide hope with a plan that begins with an extensive consultation/exam. Once they know a patient’s underlying medical issues or source of pain, they recommend treatment plans. They treat joint and musculoskeletal problems to decrease pain and improve mobility for athletes, active individuals, adults/children with spinal health problems, and people who live sedentary lives.
Burnaby chiropractors help patients get their lives back, whether they need spinal stability or better body mechanics. They address soft tissue injuries, headaches, herniated discs, neck pain, shoulder injuries, sports injuries, pinched nerves, low back pain, sciatica, and work-related injuries. With manual/hands-on adjustments, a chiropractor delivers a quick thrust to a patient’s joints or spine to alleviate pain or enhance the body’s ability to recover.
They may also use the aActivator mMethod, a hand-held tool to provide quick thrusts to the spine/joints. The aActivator protocol determines when and where to adjust. It restores proper movement in the hips, elbows, knees, wrists, and other body parts. A chiropractic treatment plan may include postural correction, nutritional suggestions, rehabilitative exercises, and additional therapeutic approaches. As patients continue to receive treatment and build momentum, their subsequent visits involve brief reassessments and holistic approaches to restore normal body functions.
Cedar Chiropractic & Physiotherapy physiotherapists empower patients to take back control of their lives through knowledge and understanding of their bodies. As an integral part of a healthcare team, physiotherapists create strong relations with patients, medical doctors, orthopedic specialists, sports injury physicians, and community clinics to offer extensive care.
