VLIFE PAIN CENTRE
Our distinctive medical manipulation integrates quality chiropractic care with various soft tissues techniques, FDA approved instruments and rehabilitative training to alleviate pain and restore the functions of your body.
Instead of manual (hand) manipulation, our certified doctors utilize evidence-based cutting edge tools and equipments to ensure safe, precise, and effective result. This treatment does not involve any twisting, turning, or “cracking” of joints.
The use of instrument adjusting such as the Arthrostim® and VibraCussor® allows for fewer side-effects and less post-treatment muscle soreness. Several studies have shown that instrument adjusting is just as effective as traditional chiropractic techniques for easing pain and increasing range of motion in patients who have sought chiropractic care. Its speed, gentleness and accuracy are also recommended for populations that may have trouble with the use of traditional chiropractic techniques, such as children and the elderly.

NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Non-invasive treatment for the management of patients with chronic neck, back, arm and leg pain from pinched nerves, or a bulging, degenerating or herniated disc. Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine using traction or a motorized device to relieve pressure on the disc and allow retraction or repositioning.
This decompression also allows nutrients into the disc to promote healing.

POSTURE CORRECTION & ERGONOMICS
Chiropractors are experts at analyzing posture relating to spinal problems. A simple yet effective Chiropractic check-up allows us to detect any imbalances in the body, especially from a young age, and correct them before the body has a chance to grow into the poor posture.
Posture is the window to the spine. If your posture is off, your spine is off. A high shoulder, a head tilt, an unleveled pelvis, forward head posture or rounded shoulders are all signs showing the body is out of alignment.
Often these poor posture have been present in the body for a long time, due to habits from everyday activities, such as sitting in office chairs, looking at the computer, driving, studying for long periods of time, carrying heavy back packs, or even sleeping. Poor posture can easily become second nature, causing or aggravating episodes of neck and back pain, and damaging spinal structures.

Chiropractors are also experts at analyzing your day to day and work ergonomics. Your desk, work area, chair, and car should be examined to make sure they don’t put any additional strain on your body when you use them. It is important that these equipments are in complete agreement with natural human movement and posture.
Our clinic offers adjunctive Physiotherapy modalities alongside Chiropractic care to strengthen damaged soft tissues and restore normal muscle tone to the injured area. The use of these various physical modalities also helps control inflammation and restores normal blood flow to the affected region.
