We all need a little extra prompting to do what we should on occasion. Vancouver Disc Centers does that for our Vancouver back pain patients!

EXERCISE FOR ALL BACK PAIN SUFFERERS

Regardless of their age, Vancouver back pain patients benefit from exercise.

Adding the psychological component to exercise seems to give better outcomes that are more enduring.

Vancouver Disc Centers appreciates the opportunity to help back pain patients to find the care they need.
