Chronic back pain (lower back pain)
Do you recognize yourself in these photos?
Are you among the 700,000 Quebecers who wake up every day with back pain?
Did you know that only two in 10 Quebecers will never experience back pain, and that back pain is the leading cause of disability in the province?
According to the CSST, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) cost Canadian taxpayers $650 million annually, and in the United States, this figure is as high as $100 billion.
Back pain, alongside obesity, cancer and heart disease, has become one of the most widespread diseases of the new millennium.
But, there’s good news. If you’re plagued by back pain on a daily basis—whether you’re 20, 40 or 70 years old—chiropractic treatments and Variable GeometryTM spinal decompression can help and are options you should consider before any other form of treatment. Drugs and surgery should be considered only as a last resort.
Why go to the chiropractor first?
Because chiropractic is a science taught at university, and because chiropractors are experts in the body’s neuromusculoskeletal system who are trained to treat you in a safe and non-invasive manner.

Why opt for computer-assisted chiropractic adjustments, which we offer at our clinic?
Most chiropractors use manipulations to perform chiropractic adjustments, and that’s how I worked for almost 20 years (using only my hands). However, for the last 25 years, like many other medical professionals, I’ve been relying on computers. As the Canadian pioneer in computer assisted chiropractic treatments, I can say without hesitation that they help me to provide fast and targeted—and above all, safe—treatments.
This remote-controlled percussion apparatus with built-in software allows me to analyze, adjust and check each individual vertebra in just a few minutes. Today’s hectic lifestyle means that people have very little time to spend at the chiropractor, a fact we completely understand.
This machine therefore has the advantage of saving the patient time, but also of sparing him or her the dreaded twisting and cracking that come with traditional manipulations (which are nevertheless safe when done by a chiropractor).
