Chiropractic services in Victoria and Oakbay: Arbutus Physio clinic

Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems in the body. It’s a natural approach to health that pays particular attention to the proper function and alignment in the body, as a source of health.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment, preventative care and rehabilitation for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system, joints and soft tissue structures in the body.

“Your musculoskeletal system connects directly to other vital systems in your body… For optimal health and quality of life, a chiropractor should be part of every Canadian’s healthcare team.”
– Canadian Chiropractic Association
