Houlgrave Chiropractic – Back Care for all ages

As a Comox chiropractor, Dr. Houlgrave has been helping patients relieve pain and improve health for the past 15 years. From desk workers to athletes, from youthful to elder family members, Houlgrave Chiropractic provides chiropractic health care for individuals of all ages in Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and the Comox Valley.

Injury is inevitable. All of us will experience some form of trauma at some point in our lives, be it from a childhood fall, chronic poor posture, repetitive movements, sporting activities or a car accident. Chiropractic treatment can help with these types of injuries by eliminating pain, improving mobility, restoring proper biomechanics, and maintaining optimal nervous system function. Regular chiropractic care can take you one step further – injury prevention and maintenance of an active and healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Houlgrave is a proud member of the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia and the British Columbia Chiropractic Association. His goal as a chiropractor is to help his patients recover from injury, prevent additional injury, and achieve and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

Testimonials

Happy customers.

After 10 years of ongoing back and disc issues, I thought I would live with pain/mobility limits forever. I had tried everything, including other forms of chiropractic treatment. I cannot say enough about Dr. Houlgrave's technique, knowledge, skill and gentle drop table treatments. I am back skiing, mountain biking, playing hockey and chasing my child around. Thanks to Dr. Houlgrave, I have my life back!

Kathy S, Teacher

My job as a massage therapist is physically demanding, for the past 7 years Dr. Rick Houlgrave has helped to maintain health and high function for my back and shoulders. Not only do I trust Rick with my own spinal adjustments, I feel confident referring my patients to Rick for Chiropractic treatments with excellent results.

|| I'm a sixty-one year old faller who occasionally requires the services of a chiropractor. Dr. Houlgrave has promptly addressed my issues, around my working schedule, often with a single appointment. I have recommended him to friends who have been equally pleased with his services. Thank you Dr. Houlgrave. ||

As a health promoter, I really appreciate Dr. Houlgrave's attention to prevention. He provides me with tips and exercises I can do at home to increase my strength and mobility and decrease my chances of re-injury. His sincerity and personable approach makes the experience enjoyable and, most importantly, he practices what he preaches. He is a great role model for health.
