Do you struggle with pain leading to difficulty sleeping, fatigue, low energy or headaches? Are you tired of using a quick fix to mask the problem? Are you frustrated that no one has been able to help you?
We understand. It’s not so much about what you’re feeling, it’s that it stops you from doing the things you need, want and love to do.
The worst part is, not knowing exactly what the problem is or why it exists.
If you struggle with knowing exactly how to support your health or that of your family, you’ve come to the right place.
Through clinical experience, many of the health challenges you experience are most often collateral damage and not core problems.
The first step in determining if we can help is to schedule a complimentary consultation so you can meet with one of our doctors, review your case and see if an examination makes sense.

What are common problems chiropractors help with?
Chiropractors are primary care doctors and can help with and manage a variety of conditions. This is also why no referral is necessary to see a chiropractor.
Chiropractors commonly help with conditions such as:
- Poor posture.
- Lower back pain.
- Neck pain.
- Muscle pain.
- Frequent headaches.
- Healing after an accident or whiplash.
- Joint pain and dysfunction.
- Stiff muscles or muscle aches.
- Common childhood problems related to the ears, digestion issues and frequent crying of newborns.
Many people feel almost immediate relief from symptoms after a chiropractic adjustment. After treatment, you might feel sore for 24 hours.
The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to restore your health over the long term, rather than to relieve your symptoms short term.
Your chiropractor will encourage you to learn about new ways to position your body at your desk, when you’re standing and moving and when you’re in bed.
They might also recommend incorporating stretches into your daily routine. These long-term tips can help prevent future problems.
How do I know if the Life By Design Chiropractic Method™ can help me?
The simple answer is you don’t, until a consultation and Bio-Structural Examination have been performed to determine the nature of your problem.
If a problem with your spine and underlying nerve system is detected, a Life By Design Chiropractor will be able to help you.
In a situation where no problem is found, or our doctors determine co-management of your case is ideal, our team will refer you to one of our trusted healthcare providers in Vancouver (massage therapist, physiotherapist, naturopath, personal trainer, etc).
Can my newborn or child have a Bio-Structural Examination?
Yes. In fact, some of our youngest practice members are just days old.
Many bio-structural challenges that people face today can be traced to early in life and, in some cases, as early as their own birth.
Developmental experts agree that having your child’s spine and nerve system checked early in life is one of the most important healthcare measures a parent can help support healthy structural and neurological development.
As children development they pass through many milestones that require a properly coordinated spine and nervous system.
Children also have lots of accidents, falls and stresses on their bodies that can lead to pain and other long-term consequences.
It’s important to note that children cannot always express what they’re feeling and an evaluation from a professional can be helpful to their health.
I’m pregnant, can I have a Bio-Structural Examination?
Firstly, congratulations! And yes.
We always start with a thorough consultation and Bio-Structural Examination to determine if we can help.
It is safe to perform the Bio-Structural Examination as well as receive chiropractic care during your pregnancy.
Prenatal chiropractic helps to support the structural and soft tissue changes a woman’s body experiences during pregnancy.
As a result of addressing spinal shifts, expecting mothers who undergo prenatal chiropractic care at The Powerhouse report a decrease in the “usual” pregnancy symptoms such as low back pain and muscle fatigue.
Proper spinal alignment also ensures that the expecting mother’s pelvis is properly aligned for birth and helping the uterus coordinate contractions during active labour.
All of our doctors are certified to use the Webster Technique.
How much will it cost?
To ensure you are in the correct place and that we can help, our consultation is always complimentary.
If a Bio-Structural Examination is required and you would like to continue, the investment is $167 for adults and $147 for children, 12 and under. Your investment includes the examination, analysis and comprehensive review of results.
If you are fortunate enough to have extended health coverage, this will reduce your personal investment. Our team can issue an itemized receipt of services for your insurance provider.
How long will it take?
A consultation will take about 10 minutes.
When warranted, a comprehensive Bio-Structural Examination will take 20 – 30 minutes.
If a Core Problem is detected, the number of required visits will be based on 3 factors:
- Your goal and objectives.
- Your current state of bio-structural function.
- How long you have had this Core Problem.
