What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. It is based on the philosophy that the body can heal itself from the inside out by removing stress and strain on the nervous system through non-invasive, chiropractic adjustments.
What does a chiropractor do?
“Chiropractors focus on your spine, muscle, and nervous system and treats the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and joints that you use every day”.* Chiropractors perform safe and gentle adjustments to remove subluxations or misalignments in the spine and promote optimal health.
Our chiropractors, Dr. Avtar Jassal and Dr. Lisa Kim in Vancouver specialize in the Torque Release Technique to identify and correct dysfunctions in the spine and use an integrator tool for highly targeted treatment.
How does chiropractic treatment work?
Chiropractic treats injuries and disorders of the nervous and musculoskeletal system using various techniques and tools to reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and restore balance in the body. Chiropractic adjustments promote communication between the nervous system and other body systems such as endocrine, reproductive, digestive, etc. to improve key bodily functions and overall health.
Does chiropractic treatment help during pregnancy?
Our chiropractors focus on prenatal chiropractic care to help ease pregnancy headaches, back pain, sciatica, sore hips or legs and can even help improve energy levels. Jassal Chiropractic uses the Webster Technique to support the uterus during pregnancy and to decrease the likelihood of breech positioning or long, complicated labour and delivery.
Should children see a chiropractor?
Yes, chiropractic is beneficial for children. Kids who play and participate in sports can experience possible falls, sprains or more serious injuries causing stress to the nervous system. By relieving subluxations or misalignments, we reduce dysfunctions to improve key functions in the body. Not only have our patients achieved pain reduction, we have also observed other positive results in babies and kids such as reduced ear infections, improved sleep patterns, improved symptoms of colic, improved immunity, etc. Chiropractic is safe and gentle for all ages from newborns to teens.
What conditions does a chiropractor treat?

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?
No, they don’t. When tension is relieved from the spine, you will likely feel restored and balanced. At Jassal Chiropractic, we use the Torque Release Technique and the Integrator tool which is even more gentle and is better known as the “endorphin gun”. You will leave our Vancouver clinic feeling light and looser.
Is chiropractic safe?
Compared to many medical interventions like surgery or pain medications, chiropractic treatment is low-risk, non-invasive and safe. As health care professionals, our chiropractors will assess whether your condition can be treated through adjustments and make referrals to other health care providers when necessary.
