Chiropractic Care, and More
Our Chiropractic Philosophy
Whether newborn or elderly, expressing symptoms or feeling symptom free, chiropractic care is of immeasurable value simply because it helps to improve the function of the nervous system, and therefore the entire body. People of all ages can attain higher levels of health, and therefore experience more out of Life.
From birth onward, we are subjected to numerous stresses, physically, mentally and emotionally. All of these stresses put the nervous system under strain, which compromises the communication pathways between the brain and the body. Without this clear communication, the body is less able to adapt to stresses, fight off disease, and function to its full potential. This interference is called a subluxation, which is corrected through chiropractic adjustments.
A Chiropractic adjustment is the manner in which your chiropractor accesses your nervous system. It is a gentle approach focused mainly on the spinal joints to restore normal motion, decrease tension, and allow for the underlying nerves to function without interference. The application is unique to each individual person, and it varies significantly from an infant, child, pregnant woman, adult or senior.
By having your spine and nervous system adjusted when necessary, your body is better able to function as it was designed to, thus giving you greater access to your inborn healing powers, your source of vitality, and your potential for Life.
The health of your body, and all of it’s systems, is directly related to how your body can handle pregnancy, including optimal fetal development, as well as labour, delivery, and the post-natal period.
Chiropractic care in pregnancy is vital to the normal physiological function of both the mother and baby in pregnancy and birth.
With children, the most rapid period of brain growth and development occurs during the first 2 years of life. For normal healthy development of the brain, we rely on sensory input. A significant amount of this input comes from joint receptors in the spine, through normal spinal motion. However, subluxations in the spine prevent normal spinal motion, and inhibit this vital sensory input.
Therefore, optimal neurological development may be hindered. Subluxations also affect the nerves of the spine, which then decreases our body’s ability to function normally. Although symptoms of pain and malfunction may not show up for years, reduced nerve function can have a huge impact on a child’s health.

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance.
Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
The symptoms of poor foot mechanics can include any one of the following:
- Localized foot pain
- Bunions, hammer toes
- Arch/heel pain
- Leg/knee pain
- Hip or back pain – even neck pain
Can chiropractic change your life?
A Note from Linda
Chiropractic adjustments work! Going back a couple years, I, a skeptic of chiropractic care, but so desperate for help, walked into Vibrant Life. Why not? What do I have to lose? Getting out of my car and walking twenty feet was considered an accomplishment. Oh, and add on the daily headaches, stomach upsets and lack of sleep.
Today, I’m happy to say, I’m back to long walks, hiking biking, and working out. Extra bonus, with this extra mobility, I’ve also lost 15 lbs. [ . . . ] I haven’t had a migraine in a year! I believe! I believe and I recommend Dr. Adam at Vibrant Life. I’d say this is just short of a miracle.
