The Eagle is "The master of skies", he is believed to have the closest relationship to the creator. By soaring great heights, he can travel between the physical and the spiritual worlds. He is said to be a messenger to the creator. The Eagle signifies focus, great strength, peace, leadership and incredible prestige.

Pain in the absence of physical signs is often difficult to appreciate, therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to present my approach to chiropractic care.

There are essentially two very different approaches to chiropractic; one is more holistic and philosophical while the other is more evidence-based and biomechanical in nature. My approach is what may be termed Modern Chiropractic; a blend of the evidence based science while retaining the essence of holistic health care. 

In a biomechanical approach, the focus is on joint motion and the cause of any dysfunction. I believe that the majority of all musculo-skeletal injuries are caused by repetitive micro-trauma (little things you do wrong) and that only a small percentage of injuries are caused by macro-trauma (car accidents, sport injuries).

My practice is not built on maintenance care, but more on education about ergonomic / physical stresses which may affect your function and performance. Recognizing ways to alleviate these stresses is critical for long term health.

I hold degrees in Physical Education and was an athletic therapist with various athletic teams including the University of Alberta, McGill University and most notably Hockey Canada. I graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1995 and in 2004 was awarded a post-doctorate specialty in Sports Injuries and Rehabilitation from the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (Canada). I am a former competitive athlete (track & field, soccer, hockey) and now try to appreciate a variety of physical pursuits towards good health.

I look forward to working with you towards your good health.
