Chiropractic Services

One of the largest primary-contact healthcare professions in North America, chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system.

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis; treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, all of which are predicated on the specific needs of the individual patient.

Chiropractic is a regulated health profession, recognized by statute in all Canadian provinces.

For many conditions, such as neck and lower back pain, chiropractic care is frequently the primary method of treatment. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the neuro-musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. According to patient surveys, by treating the neuro-musculoskeletal elements of such disorders, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve the general well-being of the patient.

At Cascadia Chiropractic Centre, we strive to make your visit to our office an experience. The procedures and systems we have in place allow us to be very thorough when assessing your need for care.

What We Do


Your first appointment will be a consultation with one of our chiropractors. During the consultation, the doctor will go over your history, perform physical examinations and possibly take X-rays. X-rays are case-by-case dependent and will be determined by the doctor during the consultation. If you have previously had imaging done, you are welcome to bring copies of your imaging reports to your consultation for the doctor to review. After taking a complete history and diagnosing any existing conditions, your chiropractor will develop a comprehensive treatment/management plan.

X-Ray Studies

During your consultation, your chiropractor will determine whether X-Rays will be required. Many factors determine the need for x-rays and this will be explained to you should X-rays be required.

X-rays give us important information including the position of the spinal bones, and the quality of the spine, and help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you. X-rays also tell us the relative length of time of accumulative injuries that may have been involved in your spine. In some cases, it may alert us of any serious hidden health conditions. Your x-rays will be explained to you and covered in detail in your Review of Findings.

Review of Findings

Once your consultation is complete, your doctor will design a treatment plan, specifically for you. At your second appointment, they will review all their findings with you and answer any questions you may have, including:

  • How can you help me?
  • How often do I need to come in?
  • What will my treatment cost?

At the conclusion of your review of findings, you may receive your first treatment. The treatment utilized will be dependent on your specific needs for the fastest and most effective results. This may include chiropractic spinal adjustments, shockwave therapy, and/or any of the many treatment options we have available. Treatment is interactive, so we encourage you to express concerns about the different styles of treatments at any time.
