Chiropractic Treatment

Best Chiropractic Care in Richmond & South Surrey

While many enjoy their regular chiropractic adjustment, some may be intimidated booking their initial visit. Our goal at Pain Free Health Clinic is not only fixing the discomfort you’re facing, but to thoroughly answer any questions along the way. We believe educating you on why you’re in pain is just as essential as relieving your pain.

At Pain Free Health Clinic, we’re committed to providing the best evidence based treatments to all our clients. In short term, we focus on alleviating your pain and inflammation with a wide variety of techniques and tools. In long term, we focus on posture education and generating awareness.

If the spinal region is not moving correctly, tension and friction will increase, resulting in additional stress to the spinal joints and supporting structures. The majority of people think “the pain will just go away on its own” if given time. If you’re sitting in the same position 5 days a week, 8~10 hours a day, this causes a lot of static pressure to develop in the areas of your neck or lower back. The more frequent and the longer that we ignore symptoms like pain and stiffness, the more likely we are going to end up with wear and tear to the spinal regions, resulting in osteoarthritis.

People are less likely to lead an active lifestyle if they have large amounts of spinal wear and tear in their neck or lower backs. The less you actively move, the more pressure that increase at the involved spinal regions. Our “spinal joints” respond better to movement, this allows for lubrication of the joints and allows the body to naturally dissipate tension in these areas. Restoring motion to the spine and body is essential in leading a healthy, active lifestyle and directly impacts everyday activities. Ensure you make your spine a priority and get it checked!

What To Expect

Our Treatments

At Pain Free Health Clinic, we’re musculoskeletal (MSK) experts that utilize a variety of techniques for patients who are in acute or chronic pain. The initial visit depending on the injury or condition, can last from 45 to 60 minutes. The first visit aims to identify the cause of the problem and to conceive a proposed plan of management. Dr. Parm Bisla is extensively trained to assess, diagnose, manage and prevent reoccurrence of conditions while specifically addressing your goals and necessities.

Your first appointment includes a comprehensive assessment to help determine the cause of the problem and how to treat it. To do so, expect questions regarding the following areas of your health:

  • Personal and family medical history
  • Major illnesses you have experienced
  • Surgeries or operations you have had
  • Medications you are taking
  • A description of your area(s) of concern
  • A description of the general state of your health
  • The steps you have taken to manage your condition
  • Your diet and exercise
  • Your sleeping habits
  • Your daily activities
  • Your work routine
  • Your stress level
  • Your home life
DIVERSIFIED TECHNIQUES

Treatment with a Dr. Parm Bisla involves spinal and soft tissue manipulation in an attempt to restore normal movement to the area. The goal of treatment is to provide proper alignment to the spine and the musculoskeletal system, which will promote healing throughout the whole body. Dr. Parm Bisla uses a combination of the following techniques to restore function to an area.

Spinal Manipulation

A spinal adjustment is performed when an area of the spine is slightly misaligned and/or not performing its normal range of motion. An adjustment can be performed with a hand held device called the ArthroStim which will deliver light repetitive thrusts to restore the spinal alignment. The chiropractic spinal adjustment can also be delivered manually by hand, where a light pressure is applied to the spine and the impulse restores normal spinal motion. Restoring healthy movement to the spine is key in alleviating tension, irritation and pain to spinal regions.

VibraCussor

The VibraCussor is a hand-held vibration device that feels like a deep tissue massage, but penetrates deep within the bodily tissues. It helps loosen tissues such as the joints, muscles, fascia or the lining around the muscles. In addition, the device helps to reduce lymphatic pressure and scar tissue. This technology is much different from traditional massage. Massage uses side to side motions to address surface tension, while the VibraCussor uses an up and down pattern of movement that goes deep into the tissues, penetrating through the joints, muscles and fascia. This device loosens the tissue and allows for deeper blood flow into these regions.

The muscle fascia is often overlooked but it is essential for keeping the body structure strong. Under stress, this tissue becomes tense and rigid. The VibraCussor helps to pump fluid and nutrients into the muscles and fascia, in order to restore proper range of motion. In addition, the device benefits the body’s nervous system by improving motion within the body and stimulating fixated joint receptors, allowing them to provide proper movement information to the brain. This mechanism acts to improve posture, enhance breathing and introduce calmness within the body.

VibraCussor therapy is great for long-term usage. Getting this type of therapy done on you on a regular basis will help the body work more efficiently, thus keep you stronger and active longer. Patients who’ve had VibraCussor therapy describes having improvements in mental and emotional stability. They also report having better breathing, decrease in pain and additional energy.

ArthroStim

The ArthroStim is a handheld instrument that aids Dr. Parm Bisla in performing adjustments to both spinal joints and other soft tissues. This powerful tool delivers 12~14 incremental thrusts per second, making it much stronger and faster than a typical single thrust administered by a chiropractor. This is frequently known as the “low beta somatomotor rhythm”. 12 hertz is the same wave length as alpha brain waves. Alpha waves appear when you are still awake, but in a state of relaxed and effortless alertness. Alpha waves are associated with relaxation, meditation and daydreaming. More importantly, the alpha state is associated with creativity, super learning, and “being in the zone”.

Many of the best professional athletes often function from alpha in their biggest games, totally unfazed by critical situations and coming up with one spectacular play after another. Navy SEALS train to function in alpha on missions so that stress and danger do not compromise their decision making. By dividing the energy of a single thrust into rapid successive inputs, the ArthroStim instrument modulates the force your physician applies in treatment,
but in a much more comfortable and effective manner.
