Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are chiropractors covered by extended health benefits?
Q. Do you direct bill to extended insurance?
Q. Do you accept ICBC cases?
Q. Do I need a referral from my family doctor?
Q. What do I need to bring on my first visit?

Q. What does an adjustment feel like?
Q. What is the cracking sound and do I have to get cracked?
A. Some chiropractic adjustments cause a cracking sound. This happens because, when a joint is adjusted, there is a release of gas pressure which can cause a "pop". The purpose of an adjustment is to normalize the movement and alignment of the joint.
If we determine joint adjustments would benefit you, we will recommend it as part of your treatment plan. If you prefer, we can use other effective techniques (like mobilizations, instrument adjusting and/or stretching).
