Our Coquitlam chiropractors have won multiple community awards through the support of our patients, their families and the community for our exemplary chiropractic and total body care. Westwood Total Health’s primary health care offering is rooted in the basics of spinal health. We believe that for your body to function best, the neural pathways between your brain and the rest of your body need to be unimpinged so that messaging about movement and function aren’t compromised.
As mentioned, your spine is designed to protect your Nervous System; life is not lived in a bubble and accidents, injuries, poor posture and a variety of sports and personal activities can shift your spine out of alignment. These misalignments are called spinal subluxations and they put pressure on the spinal cord and its self-contained nervous system. When pressure is put on your spinal column it causes nerve interference. In your day-to-day life these pressures are well tolerated and an expected part of day-to-day living. When conditions are acute or chronic however the spinal subluxations create an environment leading to and culminating in less efficient function. Untreated, the body adapts as best it can but every adaptation has a price in the efficiency your body has to pay. Over extended lengths of time, the price your body pays manifests as chronic disease and debilitating physical symptoms. The most common of these create symptoms such as back spasms, upper back and neck pain, headaches and tension, shoulder pain, sciatica and pinched nerves Believe it or not misalignments in your spine can also cause Allergies and we treat a variety of other conditions as well.
Except for acute injury which is immediately obvious and apparent, minor subluxations erode the effective and efficient body messaging slowly. That little pinch or stiffness that you feel in your back when you’ve spent the day gardening may not stop you from what you love today but in 20 years if it’s not addressed the stiffness may stop you from enjoying your garden completely. Gardening may not be your passion in life but the same concept holds true for whatever that may be; golf, running, climbing, weight-lifting, woodwork, yoga, cooking, etc.
At Westwood Total Health we offer chiropractic care that gets you back to what you love; to get back to life.
