Conditions Treated at Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic in Nanaimo, BC
People visit our Nanaimo chiropractor for various reasons, often seeking pain relief from injury or a chronic condition. At Woodgrove Pines Wellness Clinic, our patients are dealing with a variety of acute and chronic health conditions that can seriously impact their quality of life.
Auto Accident Injury
Even minor car accidents can cause injury, which may not always present right away. Whiplash is probably the most common auto accident injury we see, which is associated with strain to the connective tissues in the neck, shoulders, and upper back. The rapid acceleration and deceleration of the body can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and additional symptoms.
Beginner to elite level athletes can experience sports injuries like shin splints, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and runner's knee due to factors like over-training, poor technique, and acute accidents during training or competition.
Repetitive movement, excessive sitting, heavy lifting, or poor ergonomics can lead to occupational injuries. Common ones include carpal tunnel syndrome, tech neck, headaches, sciatica, and low back pain.
Chronic pain—lasting more than 2 to 3 months—often impacts the head, neck, shoulder, back, hip, and leg. It's often associated with issues like migraines, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, stenosis, or fibromyalgia, as well as factors like stress, occupation, smoking, obesity, and age.
Herniated Disc, Bulging Disc & Degenerative Disc Disease
Spinal discs provide mobility and shock absorption in the spine. If a disc is subjected to abnormal pressure or wear and tear, it can rupture, bulge out of place, or thin and degenerate over time.
Our Services Are Non-Invasive, Drug-Free & Highly Effective for Acute or Chronic Conditions
- Active Release Technique: "massage plus movement" drastically reduces areas of mobility restrictions
- Laser Therapy: light interacts with tissues to accelerate cellular metabolism and tissue healing
- Shockwave Therapy: sound interacts with tissues to reduce spasms and increase circulation
- Spinal Decompression: this non-surgical technique is perfect for sciatica or disc injuries, since it relieves pressure on these structures and enhances healing
We also offer holistic services like naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, physiotherapy, chiropractic adjustments, and massage therapy. Together, these services help realign your entire musculoskeletal system, improve your strength and flexibility, reduce pain, and help you learn how to move more safely and efficiently in your day-to-day life.
