A person’s spine is made of twenty-four bones called vertebrae. Throughout our lives our bodies suffer from micro traumas that cause our vertebrae to misalign. This is called a subluxation. Subluxations put pressure on nerves resulting in pain, numbness and tingling, and even organ pathology. In some cases, symptoms may go unnoticed except that the person may, for example, notice they are more susceptible to colds and flus, experience low energy, or have digestive issues, among other issues.
Chiropractic care provides people with a natural and non-invasive way to relieve pain through realigning the vertebrae through a series of gentle adjustments, allowing 100% of the nerve energy to reach the tissues it serves. With regular chiropractic care, patients can decrease discomfort, increase their mobility, and improve their overall wellness. Chiropractic care is suitable for people of all ages who are looking to move and feel better.

Spinal decompression therapy involves stretching and lengthening the spine, reversing the effects of spinal compression that occurs with the natural aging process. Spinal decompression therapy is performed on a decompression machine, which allows patients to lie on a computer-controlled traction table that will gently pull on both ends of the body, allowing the spine to stretch and elongate. This allows the misaligned components of the spine to move back into natural alignment, thus reducing pressure on a surrounding nerve root. Spinal decompression can be beneficial to those experiencing back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
Chiropractic Care for Kids
Chiropractic care has numerous benefits for growing children. Benefits include, among others, better digestion, reduction in asthma symptoms, improved concentration, fewer behavioural issues, help with colic, better sleep, and improved immune support. As children are growing their vertebrae can become misaligned, creating more tension on their nervous system. Having their spine aligned and receiving regular adjustments from a chiropractor can allow them to grow the way they’re supposed to, with no extra pressure on certain bones or muscles. Chiropractic care for children can stimulate and promote nerve and brain development, promoting proper perception and awareness. It has also been shown that chiropractic care for children can help reduce ear infections, bed wetting, and allergies.
Life Integrative is proud to be one of Vancouver’s few clinics to offer Shockwave Therapy as a treatment. Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing process in the body, aids in fast pain relief, and assists in mobility restoration. Shockwave therapy stimulates the metabolism and enhances blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area, creating pulses for short periods of time, causing micro-cavitation bubbles to expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body which are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing. Shockwave therapy has been shown to be most effective in cases where the human body has not been able to heal itself on its own.
Shockwave therapy offers patients a non-invasive option to help treat a lingering injury or pain resulting from illness. It is a great alternative to taking painkillers because shockwave therapy instead triggers the body’s own natural healing response mechanisms. Book in today to see how shockwave therapy can benefit you!
Custom Orthotic Inserts
Our feet act as the foundation that supports our weight. As such, they have a direct impact on the rest of our body. Factors such as sports, standing for long periods of time, age, and even bone structure can cause discomfort in our feet, knees, hips, and back. However, this can be alleviated with a custom orthotic. Custom orthotics can be placed into any one of your shoes and used every day and are appropriate for anyone looking for ease in their step.
Prenatal chiropractic care has a profound impact on the comfort of the mother during pregnancy and labor and also on the comfort and well-being of the growing baby. Women, at some point in their life, experience stress, trauma, or injury that causes a subtle change to the movement and position of their pelvis thus creating imbalance. During pregnancy, any pre-existing imbalances in the pelvis or its supporting ligaments and muscles can become overtaxed.
Prenatal chiropractic care specifically addresses imbalances in the pelvis and surrounding supportive tissue to restore structural and functional integrity. This allows a woman’s body to accommodate and adapt to the significant changes that she goes through as her baby grows and develops. It also ensures that the pelvis is in the optimal position for labour and delivery of her baby.
Life Integrative is proud to offer pre-natal chiropractic care to expectant mothers. We also have specially designed tables for pregnant women that accommodate growing bellies.
