Chiropractors are effective in treating headaches, as well as neck and back pain. Even better – chiropractic treatments are covered by most student health-care plans here in Alberta.

What can I visit a chiropractor for?

Let’s face it – student life is demanding. Spending long hours sitting in class, hunched over a computer or bent over homework isn’t good for anyone’s back and joints. As musculoskeletal system experts, chiropractors know how damaging poor posture is—and they’re here to help.

Chiropractors are trained to treat several common conditions. If you’ve experienced any of the following, consult with a chiropractor:

  • Headaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Whiplash and other auto accident injuries
  • Chronic and acute pain syndromes like sciatica
  • Repetitive strain injuries to a joint, like tennis elbow

You can find more information on chiropractors and the services they provide in our About section.
