During the COVID-19 pandemic, our clinic will be following the collaborated guidance set by the Provincial Health Officer, Work Safe BC, BC Centre for Disease Control and the BC College of Chiropractors. The guidance given reflects the best evidence available at this time and it will change as required to reflect updates on our understanding of the virus and its transmission. It will aid to continue to promote safe care to patients and, continues to prevent the spread of the virus.

You must schedule an appointment for an in-person treatment. Unscheduled, drop-in treatment is not permitted.

The chiropractor must interview you over the phone or using internet communications (email). You cannot be interviewed in person. If you schedule an appointment using the Book Online button, the screening questionnaire and further guidance can be viewed there and answers provided in the "Extra Info / Comments" section, as this will be the most efficient and convenient way. With an online booking, this will alert the chiropractor and if needed, he will communicate with you from there. Alternatively, you may call the clinic at 604-299-7199 and leave a message.

Getting ready for the holidays!

During the holidays, it is common to get busy and out of routine. We all have to be careful as it's not just those extra few pounds that we have to worry about but also the vulnerability of our tissues and old physical complaints/injuries. Very commonly, a large number of the visits people make to my office are for back and neck pain during this time. They often say, "lately I have been so busy and have had no time" to stop and stretch and apply a cold pack even though they were aware of the pain in the area 'brewing.' I advise we have to make time to react earlier than later to these signs. It can save you time and money and reduce the number of visits to my office or sometimes even resolve it quickly.

Tips to avoid foot &/or leg problems in the summer.

It seems that every summer patients will return to my office with foot and or lower leg pains. Many of these issues begin because the better weather makes one choose "summer footwear." Most of these types of footwear have less support for the feet. By choosing better supportive footwear during extended periods of activity, this can lessen the chances for painful problems from developing.

Tips to help your back when starting yard work.

Looks like the weather is beginning to improve. This means we all are thinking about starting yard work. I think the key tip most forget to think about is that this task causes you to stay bent forward at the waist for way too long.For some individuals, this begins their misalignment and can cause back stiffness and even spasms.

Holiday Tips for Avoiding Pain & Inflammation

The Holiday season is always busy. But with a physical complaint like developing back and neck pain you must make time for it. Although we are in a cold season, applying a cold pack wrapped in a thin towel to the area for 15 minutes and repeated every two hours could greatly help you. This also tends to reduce the number of visits that a patient needs to see me for since pain signalling and inflammation cause the body to compensate poorly.

What can I expect on my first visit to Brentwood Chiropractic?

The first visit can range from 30 minutes-60 minutes. The chiropractor will obtain a thorough history of your current complaint, and past history of similar complaints, and past medical history. A full physical examination will be conducted including orthopaedic tests, muscle and nerve testing. The chiropractor will discuss your diagnosis and advise you on the treatment plan and any home exercises/stretches that may be appropriate for your condition. Treatment will usually be given on the first visit.
