Chiropractic

Jointworks provides chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage services in Vancouver. Chiropractic is a safe, hands-on approach to nerves, muscles and joints of the body.  Chiropractors are primary health doctors that provide an accurate diagnosis and evidence-based treatment. Personalized treatment plans are created for each patient after careful examination and consideration of their needs. Customized exercises are then provided to meet each patient’s ability and goals. These are also combined with the use of manual therapy including Active Release Techniques® and Graston®. KinesioTaping and Laser Therapy are also offered for acute injuries and chronic pain.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy gets you back to everyday function and improving performance. This can help you with a sports injury or overuse injury. It can also be useful for recuperating from motor vehicle accidents, disease, or disability.

The first appointment included an assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Tiffany then uses manual therapy and provides education and rehabilitation exercises. These will help decrease pain and correct movement dysfunction. The focus of physiotherapy is to promote an active and healthy lifestyle and to prevent future injury.

Massage and Prenatal Massage

Our Registered Massage Therapists offer myofascial and trigger point release therapy. They also offer muscle energy techniques, deep tissue and Swedish massage. Pre and postnatal moms can receive a therapeutic prenatal massage while being comfortably supported by our pregnancy cushions.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treats a wide variety of disorders including stress, sleep disturbances such as insomnia, and allergy elimination using the NAET technique. It is also used to treat digestive issues, flu & colds prevention, women’s disorders including PMS and menopause, and chronic fatigue. Debbie incorporates her kinesiology background to effectively treat and provide rehabilitation techniques on any pain issues. These include sciatica, shoulders, neck and back pain. Acupuncture can treat headaches and migraines, among other pains you may have.

Naturopathic Medicine

Dr. Ghag takes an in-depth look at your health to determine the root cause of your symptoms. These may include digestion, acne, and eczema. Other root causes may be hormone imbalance, chronic stress, sleep, low energy, PCOS, and pain. She may modify diet and lifestyle, using botanical medicine, supplements, acupuncture, and IV therapy. IV therapy is a way to increase your body’s supply of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, customized to your specific needs. It will also provide immune support, detoxification, skin health, allergy, PMS and migraine relief.

Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics provide comfort, support, and pain relief during daily activities.  Our orthotics are low-profile plastic with soft top-covers. Best of all they easily transfer between shoes.  For each patient, we conduct a thorough physical examination and a biomechanical gait analysis. We also use the TOG Gaitscan™. This is the most sophisticated and technologically advanced system available.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology is a personal approach to physical exercise with one-on-one guidance and support. All levels of recovery and fitness can benefit from kinesiology. Everyone begins with a Functional Movement Screening to determine your specific needs. Our kinesiologists often work closely with our physiotherapist and chiropractors for a collaborative approach to your recovery. Common areas of improvement include core strength, mobility, balance, and stability. Other common areas of improvement are conditioning, general health, ICBC, and pain free movement. Our kinesiologists are Practicing Members of the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists (BCAK).
