“Chiropractors are musculoskeletal (MSK) experts who adopt evidence informed treatments to help resolve and prevent biomechanical problems caused by muscular, skeletal, and nervous system dysfunction.”
What is Chiropractic Care?
The Chiropractic profession is a primary health care modality in Canada. The Chiropractic profession in BC is regulated by the College of Chiropractors of BC (CCBC). This central governing body works with the Provincial Government, under the Health Professions Act, to provide regulatory mechanisms that ensure public safety and a standardized educational format focused on providing successful registrants a minimum level of competency in the profession.
The Chiropractic profession involves multiple interventions for the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction. This includes manual therapy techniques, electrotherapeutic and mechanical agents, and active rehabilitation.
