At Active Life Chiropractic our Maple Ridge Chiropractors understand that doctor means teacher.  That is why we put such a strong emphasis on educating our practice members on how the body truly functions and heals.  We find that when people understand their body and its amazing potential they naturally make better health choices.


In order to heal, function properly and reach your full health potential, certain requirements and needs must be fulfilled. The body has an incredible capacity to heal and rebuild itself healthier every day but it must be provided with the basic building blocks.  Most people know that clean water, heathy food and regular exercise are necessary for a healthy vibrant body.  What many people overlook is that a healthy nerve supply is essential to our health.  Every single cell, tissue and organ in your body receives either a direct nerve supply or is under control of the central nerve system via chemical messengers produced by glands and other cells. In short, every function within the body is regulated through the nerve system – sleep, energy, digestion, healing and repair, strength, stamina, reproduction, immune system function, concentration, focus, cognition, and millions more. What would happen if we interfere with this Brain – Body Connection?

The role of a chiropractor is to address this interference in all people.

This applies to infants, children, pregnant moms, athletes and seniors – in short, anyone who is pursuing an extraordinary life needs to maintain the integrity of the Brain – Body Connection.

Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic is not just for people who have a symptom or condition. Chiropractic as we practice is for those people who have a spine and nerve system and a desire to be healthier than they currently are or have dreams of reaching their full potential.

Chiropractic is the only profession that specifically addresses the nerve system and its function, as its primary goal.
