1. What do you love about your profession?
I get to know new people almost everyday. Each day, each appointment is an opportunity for me to learn about life as much as it is for me to teach them (patients) about their health.
2. Why did you become a Chiropractor?
I was never great at any physical training or sports so I forced myself to try many different things and practice to get better. As is common, this resulted in the gift of many injuries which lead me to seek care. At the Chiropractic school clinic, it was the first time a practitioner put effort into teaching me about my injuries and how I can correct them myself. I knew from that moment I wanted to pay forward and give people that same autonomy over their health.
3. What specific tools/training do you use in your practice that people might want to know more about?
To me, manual treatment is like martial arts. Almost everything works, but you have to choose the right technique at the right time for the right reason. I’ve been trained in a variety of techniques such as ART (active release technique), Graston, Neurofunctional Acupuncture, FRS (Functional Range Systems), DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization).
4. If you weren’t a Chiropractor, what would you be?
In high school, I was enroute to engineering, specifically Aerospace Engineering. The fact that we could build rockets that could defy gravity and blast essentially a building into space was very exciting to me.
5. Tell us one thing you are passionate about outside of your work 🙂
Trick question. I turned my passion into something I get paid for.
Bonus question: Favourite food?
All of it.
