How Our Unique Vancouver Chiropractor Services Will Help You Get Your Goals on Track:​

Pain, movement, performance, or longevity? Starting with our intake form and continuing through treatment – we want to know WHY you’re here. What brings you in? How is your issue affecting your goal, and why does this matter? 

Our consults and initial visits normally begin with the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). This rapid head-to-toe assessment helps us understand how the whole body and local areas affect your issue. Detailed assessment guides effective treatment, and a focussed treatment plan.

Our modern Vancouver chiropractors take pride in providing 1-on-1 care based in manual therapy and exercise, in 30 and 60-minute treatments. We’re committed to breaking the status quo, and offer the most thorough and informative level of assessment and care. And we read up on all the modern physio, chiro, sports medicine and strength training literature. Just to be clear, this is not your old-school chiropractor.

Beyond experience in chiropractic care, our therapists bring considerable experience, studies and mentorships in strength training, mobility and a wide range of sports. This doesn’t mean we only work with Olympic hopefuls, Ironman triathletes and yoga gurus. Our goal is to help anyone who is ready to move beyond pain and into performance – however that is defined for your lifestyle.

Speaking of the SFMA head to toe assessment, our physios, chiros and massage therapists have ALL studied to ensure we can see the body through the same lens. With this ability, we then apply our unique individual skills to help you reach your goals. In time, therapists learn to understand one another’s strengths and the client wins.

Wow what an experience! I booked with Diana to address my recurring knee pains with weight training. She did a great job in the assessment and immediately recognized the possible mobility issues that are causing the discomfort. We went through a few exercises and some physical treatment that left me feeling better than ever! This was my first time, but Diana didn’t waste any time in making it a comfortable experience. Looking forward to booking again!

I came into see Diana for sacral nerve pain that I've been experiencing for quite some time over the last few weeks. Over the entirety of our session, my hip range of motion increased substantially and I was able to move pain free even before our session finished! She educated me extremely well and gave me great home exercises to work on until our next session. Thank you Diana and the team at Lift!

First visit at the new Lift Clinic location, which moved from Kingsway onto Knight street, around the corner. Space was clean, and I love the cushy flooring. RMT visit with Michael Fung was super as usual, and I'll be working on the stretch Mike showed me to try to ease my ropey back and shoulder muscles. Good covid safety protocol adherence. Felt safe and comfortable during my visit.

Daniel is absolutely fantastic. Not only does he get you up and moving again as quickly as possible, he knows when to push you and when to be more cautious in the amount of physical activity you should be doing. Highly recommended.

After needing shoulder surgery back in 2017, I was so afraid that I would be one of those volleyball athletes who struggles with shoulder pain their entire career. Thanks to Travis and his team at Lift Clinic, I trust that this isn’t the case. Travis helped me so much throughout my recovery, and has continued to do so over the years. He has so much knowledge of the human body and the importance of the neck when it comes to shoulder health. After releasing tension in my neck my shoulder felt stronger and without pain. I am so grateful for Travis and Lift Clinic for helping me keep my shoulder healthy over the years so that I can feel my best out on the court!

I have been going to LIFT for a number of injuries (including lisfran foot fracture, torn rotator cuff/shoulder pain and runner's wear-and-tear) over the last few years - they're comprehensive approach is second to none. They don't just treat the issue, they are committed to finding the root cause and fixing that. If I could rate 6 stars I would.

FAQ - Things People Ask Us About Chiro

In general, yes. We perform hundreds of adjustments every month with considerable success in terms of decreasing pain and improving movement. There is also significant research support for manipulation techniques in physiotherapy and chiropractic journals. 

If you have concerns about safety, what’s important is that you share your concern with your chiropractor. Be clear that you want to feel in control of your process throughout each and every session. You want to have an opportunity to confirm that you feel relaxed and comfortable prior to any adjustments. And to be informed of any risks of specific treatments as you go along.

At Lift Clinic this is normal. It helps having longer treatment sessions than conventional chiropractic clinics. We value your input and want you to feel in control at all times.

In terms of language, we don’t like to say we’re cracking your back – we provide skilled hands-on manual therapy. Sometimes this is in the form of thrust techniques, also known as manipulation. For some, hearing or feeling a “crack” can sound intimidating but what you should expect is a carefully executed technique from highly skilled hands, with the purpose to improve range of motion and pain.

As for whether this is suitable for you – this depends on your assessment. Through a combination of movement testing for the head, neck, back and whole body we are able to identify movement faults. With our hands we can feel where speficific joints move well or do not. If we find areas where joints aren’t moving well, your chiropractor may recommend a manipulation . 

Last but not least, we like to point out that manipulation is only one tool in our tool belt. If you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But our chiropractors have a wide range of tools at their disposal, so if you prefer not to have a manipulation that’s ok too.

Yes, absolutely. You may have heard of these types:

Cowboy chiro – quick on  the draw, this chiropractor is known for short sessions, minimal assessment, large waiting rooms and lengthy treatment plans.

Gizmo chiro – specializing in fancy machines that set them apart, you’ll need to keep coming back so that the machines can fix you. Because they’re machines, they must know what’s best.

Modern Vancouver Chiropractor – this chiro bucks the trend, opting for longer treatments, detailed assessments, and uses a wide range of techniques and exercises to help clients achieve lasting solutions rather than form dependencies. 

This really varies depending on the situation. While conventional physio is known to have more of an exercise based approach, you’ll find chiropractors at Lift Clinic are open to working with exercise as well, and quite skilled at it. Conversely our physiotherapists may surprise you with their manual therapy skillsets! If you feel that either one may be able to help you, we suggest you go with your gut and pick one to start. During your initial assessment, ask the clinician if they feel another discipline may be a better fit, or complimentary. 

At Lift we love to work as a team. We strongly value each others’ assessments and input, and take joy in extending our skillset and abilities through our colleagues. 

Chiropractor, hands down! 

Ok seriously though, it depends on the situation and who the two clinicians you’re comparing really are. 

We like to advise people see our chiropractor for very detailed assessments, situations where we expect joint mobility is at fault, and situations where it’s likely that one area is affecting pain and performance at another area. But from an outside point of view, it’s really hard to know this without first being assessed by an expert clinician.

Massage therapists at Lift Clinic are known for treatments that focus on releasing tension in the muscles, and have a scope of practice that spans “relaxation” to problem-solving and detailed full body assessments.

If you’re trying to choose between making your first appointment with a chiropractor or a massage therapist, at Lift Clinic it may not matter too much because if you see one and they feel the other will help you more, you can expect an honest opinion and a collaborative treatment approach.
