November 2020

I am excited to announce that on January 4th, 2021, I will be moving my Chiropractic Practice to a new space at #102 – 3795 Carey Rd, Victoria, BC, to join The Athlete Centre. The clinic consists of a talented team of Athletic Therapists, Registered Massage Therapists, Strength and Conditioning Coaches and a Physiotherapist.

The Athlete Centre is approximately 1.5 kms away from the current office.  The new clinic is in a central location in The Apex Building, which is north of Uptown Mall across from The Gateway Village, close to where the Pat Bay Highway becomes Blanshard street. The location has an excellent bus route service nearby and ample free parking on site.

With the services offered at The Athlete Centre, I am excited for the opportunity to further help you achieve your health and wellness goals.  I will continue to offer the same high-quality, movement-based Chiropractic care at the new location, including access to Class IV Laser therapy. I also have access to an 850 sq ft rehab space for patient sessions.

For your convenience, The Athlete Centre offers online booking and direct billing to many extended medical plans.  For more information on the clinic, COVID-19 protocols and many of our other services, I encourage you to visit the website: www.athletecentre.ca

Some of these courses include certifications in Active Release TechniquesGraston Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Technique, FAKTR-PM or Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation, and Motion, and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. Furthermore, he constantly strives to better serve his patients by increasing his knowledge base through continuing education courses, workshops and conferences.
