Claire Kassain  doing spinal decompression in Vancouver


Dr. JEFF ALMON - A unique approach.
Dr. Jeff has had the opportunity to work closely with high level performers in a variety of sports and has learned how to identify breaks, or weak-links in the kinetic chain of athletes. Ultimately, the brain needs to be disarmed of it’s protective mechanisms to reveal the performance engine underlying it. Once patterns are identified, treatment is applied to muscle, ligament, fascia, joints and connective tissue to provide an update of sensory input. The brain can then, with the new information, fill in the sensory gaps that is missing and allow proper movement to arise. Our reprogramming classes, Ground Control and Bazooka arm the patient with pre-movement strategies to solidify ideal movement patterns.

Dr. Claire specializes in spinal decompression to help better our athletes and urban warriors of downtown Vancouver.

Our Physiotherapist Alyssa Matheson offers Physiotherapy through Soft Tissue Manual Therapy treatments, Shockwave Therapy and IMS Dry Needling treatments.

What is Radial Shockwave Therapy?

Radial Shockwave Therapy uses high-intensity sound waves to stimulate the body’s repair mechanisms, allowing it to heal itself at a more accelerated rate. It is particularly helpful in the case of chronic, longstanding conditions. It is also used to help breakdown calcium deposits and scar tissue—both of which are often responsible for limited function and mobility. The breaking down of calcium deposits allows their building blocks to be reabsorbed by the body. Radial Shockwave Therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the target area, therefore making re-injury (or recurrence of the condition being treated) rare.
