CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractors are the only health care professionals trained to examine the spine for subluxations and correct them. Dr. Stu is based in Vancouver, B.C. and uses different tools such as x-rays, orthopaedic tests, sEMG and palpation to determine where misalignments are located in the spine and what adjustments are required to correct them. Dr. Stu is trained in a variety of different adjusting techniques (including NUCCA, Gonstead, Diversified and Chiropractic Bio- Physics) and can choose the most effective one based on posture and condition of your spine. An adjustment is a gentle, specific force applied to a vertebra to move it back into correct alignment. This prevents further damage and degeneration in the spine and also restores proper function of the nerves. Convenience and custom care from a seasoned chiropractor come together at Advantage Chiropractic in downtown Vancouver. 

sEMG stands for Surface Electromyography. SEMG is a device that measures the amount of electrical activity your muscles release when they are contracting, more commonly known as muscle tension.
