How has chiropractic care affected your life?
Relieving Patients of Pain One Back At a Time
• Herniated disc - A herniated disc is a condition that occurs when compressed vertebrae place too much pressure on the discs in the spine. The result is chronic dull or sharp pains that affect the lower back and upper back, and may cause a condition known as sciatica.
• Personal injury - A personal injury occurs when an accident or activity causes injury to the joints, muscles, bones or other components of the musculoskeletal system. Personal injuries are most common following car accidents and workplace accidents, or while participating in a sport or athletic activity.

Caring for Your Spine with Back Exercises
If you suffer from chronic back pain, you may feel as though there are few options for managing your discomfort. Instead of using pain medications to simply cover up your symptoms, you may benefit from a combination of chiropractic care and back exercises that are designed to address your symptoms, as well as the underlying conditions that are causing them.
If you are suffering from spinal alignment problems, a herniated disc or a muscle injury, using back exercises in between your chiropractic visits may accelerate the rehabilitation process. For example, if you are suffering from a lower back injury, squats use multiple joints in the lower back, hips and legs that can help you make a faster recovery. On the other hand, exercises that strengthen the trapezius muscles, such as shoulder shrugs, can tighten and elevate the upper back, which can aid with posture correction.
In addition to using back exercise for rehabilitative purposes, it is also beneficial to overall wellness and spinal health. When performed correctly, certain exercises, such as back extensions, dead lifts and pull-ups are beneficial for strengthening the upper and lower back muscles. A strong back means less strain when lifting or performing routine activities that are common causes of back injury.

Strong Spines and Achieving Optimal Wellness Helped with Completion of Vancouver's Half Iron Man
Our spine is the foundation of a healthy body. When our spine is injured or out of alignment, we are at increased risk for injury, illness and fatigue. Whether you’re training for a marathon or recovering from an injury, building a strong spine is the first step towards achieving your wellness goals.
#2: Practice proper posture. Sitting for eight hours a day, five days a week slumped at a desk is a recipe for poor posture. Proper ergonomics helps protect your spine from injury. For an added core workout, swap your office chair for an exercise ball. You don’t have to sit on the ball all day, but an hour in the afternoon is a great way to reenergize your muscles and wake up your body.
Dr. Killian recommends regular chiropractic care to help maintain proper alignment. These adjustments can also help reduce the risk for future injuries and chronic pain.
