How Our Unique Vancouver Chiropractor Services Will Help You Get Your Goals on Track:​

Pain, movement, performance, or longevity? Starting with our intake form and continuing through treatment – we want to know WHY you’re here. What brings you in? How is your issue affecting your goal, and why does this matter? 

Our consults and initial visits normally begin with the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). This rapid head-to-toe assessment helps us understand how the whole body and local areas affect your issue. Detailed assessment guides effective treatment, and a focussed treatment plan.

Our modern Vancouver chiropractors take pride in providing 1-on-1 care based in manual therapy and exercise, in 30 and 60-minute treatments. We’re committed to breaking the status quo, and offer the most thorough and informative level of assessment and care. And we read up on all the modern physio, chiro, sports medicine and strength training literature. Just to be clear, this is not your old-school chiropractor.

Beyond experience in chiropractic care, our therapists bring considerable experience, studies and mentorships in strength training, mobility and a wide range of sports. This doesn’t mean we only work with Olympic hopefuls, Ironman triathletes and yoga gurus. Our goal is to help anyone who is ready to move beyond pain and into performance – however that is defined for your lifestyle.

Speaking of the SFMA head to toe assessment, our physios, chiros and massage therapists have ALL studied to ensure we can see the body through the same lens. With this ability, we then apply our unique individual skills to help you reach your goals. In time, therapists learn to understand one another’s strengths and the client wins.

I started seeing Sam during the COVID-19 pandemic because of a back injury I sustained while squatting in my home gym. Since this was early in the pandemic and in-person appointments were not possible, I saw Sam via the online appointments. I was amazed how effective these online sessions were, and it is clear that Sam is an extremely knowledgeable physiotherapist. Once we began doing in-person session, he helped me improve my lifting technique and I am now lifting pain free, which was not the case prior to my injury! I highly recommend seeing Sam at Lift!

I started going here in January, 2020 for a MVA. Sam has done an amazing job helping me through my recovery and giving me stretches and exercises to perform at my best throughout the day. I recently saw him again for a follow-up appointment virtually and Sam was able to deliver the same attention, care, and feedback as he would during our in person sessions. I highly recommend seeing him for Physio treatments!
Sam is a great physiotherapist. He’s friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.

Love the clinic and space they have here! I have been seeing Sam and Dan over the past few months and their thorough assessment and treatment style has been better than other clinics I have been to. They really care and set you up on a well made treatment plan to get you back to 100%. Super knowledgeable and genuine people that work here.

Been dealing with a combination of wrist, shoulder and lower back pain for a number of years due to minor injuries from gym activities as a beginner and because of this my body was never feeling 100%. Was skeptical all about seeing another Chiro or Physio because of all the temporary fixes and in a few days symptoms would flare up again. Saw Henry and he found the root of my symptoms. After 2 or so visits of soft tissue work along with some simple stretches for homework and his enthusiasm for powerlifting, he managed to find a way to alleviate most of my aches and pains, as well find new techniques to help me set personal bests for my lifts.

Travis and Dan saved me from mobility issues after 1.5 months of treatment. Now I'm happily active and healthy again. Lift has an incredibly knowledgeable and friendly team - I highly recommend them!

I have had a long history problems with my left knee ACL, and seen as many as 7 different physios in the past. Most of the past physios I've seen were not so good at following up or i felt were not effective with their treatment plan. I found Henry at Lift through mutual friends and so far I found him to be quite knowledgeable, very hands on. I liked how he was very thorough with his initial assessment, asking the right questions, and personally following up with me during afterwork hours to see how things were and whether i had any questions with the exercise plan he came up with. So far so good and I'd likely recommend him to my friends and family.

The team at Lift Clinic is outstanding! Glad to have received physiotherapy, massage, and chiropractic services at one of Vancouver's top multidisciplinary clinics. I've had a number of injuries from years of paddling and lifting. Lift has helped me recover and return to doing what I love to do best.
Had a shoulder surgery about 10 years ago. With the help from Travis Dodds and team its been stronger than ever. Most recently, I got into a bad car accident and thought i would see the team at Lift Clinic again and have not been dissapointed with the exceptional knowledge the team has. Its a very clean facility and i feel very safe with their covid19 protocals. I would highly recommend all my family and friends to see the team at Lift Clinic as they are well trained, safe/clean and quite friendly to get along with. Thanks to the team at Lift Clinic for the continued help with my recovery.

The team at Lift has been outstanding in trying to help me regain my active lifestyle after injuries and mobility issues. Travis, Dr. Dan, and Mike work collaboratively to formulate a comprehensive treatment plan designed to help you achieve your goals. I've been very happy with the professionalism, knowledge, and individually tailored treatment plans all three have provided - and the way everything they do is connected to what their colleagues are helping me with. I highly recommend Travis, Dr. Dan, and Mike if you're looking to return to form, or improve your ability to move more freely.

FAQ - Things People Ask Us About Chiro

In general, yes. We perform hundreds of adjustments every month with considerable success in terms of decreasing pain and improving movement. There is also significant research support for manipulation techniques in physiotherapy and chiropractic journals. 

If you have concerns about safety, what’s important is that you share your concern with your chiropractor. Be clear that you want to feel in control of your process throughout each and every session. You want to have an opportunity to confirm that you feel relaxed and comfortable prior to any adjustments. And to be informed of any risks of specific treatments as you go along.

At Lift Clinic this is normal. It helps having longer treatment sessions than conventional chiropractic clinics. We value your input and want you to feel in control at all times.

In terms of language, we don’t like to say we’re cracking your back – we provide skilled hands-on manual therapy. Sometimes this is in the form of thrust techniques, also known as manipulation. For some, hearing or feeling a “crack” can sound intimidating but what you should expect is a carefully executed technique from highly skilled hands, with the purpose to improve range of motion and pain.

As for whether this is suitable for you – this depends on your assessment. Through a combination of movement testing for the head, neck, back and whole body we are able to identify movement faults. With our hands we can feel where speficific joints move well or do not. If we find areas where joints aren’t moving well, your chiropractor may recommend a manipulation . 

Last but not least, we like to point out that manipulation is only one tool in our tool belt. If you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. But our chiropractors have a wide range of tools at their disposal, so if you prefer not to have a manipulation that’s ok too.

Yes, absolutely. You may have heard of these types:

Cowboy chiro – quick on  the draw, this chiropractor is known for short sessions, minimal assessment, large waiting rooms and lengthy treatment plans.

Gizmo chiro – specializing in fancy machines that set them apart, you’ll need to keep coming back so that the machines can fix you. Because they’re machines, they must know what’s best.

Modern Vancouver Chiropractor – this chiro bucks the trend, opting for longer treatments, detailed assessments, and uses a wide range of techniques and exercises to help clients achieve lasting solutions rather than form dependencies. 

This really varies depending on the situation. While conventional physio is known to have more of an exercise based approach, you’ll find chiropractors at Lift Clinic are open to working with exercise as well, and quite skilled at it. Conversely our physiotherapists may surprise you with their manual therapy skillsets! If you feel that either one may be able to help you, we suggest you go with your gut and pick one to start. During your initial assessment, ask the clinician if they feel another discipline may be a better fit, or complimentary. 

At Lift we love to work as a team. We strongly value each others’ assessments and input, and take joy in extending our skillset and abilities through our colleagues. 

Chiropractor, hands down! 

Ok seriously though, it depends on the situation and who the two clinicians you’re comparing really are. 

We like to advise people see our chiropractor for very detailed assessments, situations where we expect joint mobility is at fault, and situations where it’s likely that one area is affecting pain and performance at another area. But from an outside point of view, it’s really hard to know this without first being assessed by an expert clinician.

Massage therapists at Lift Clinic are known for treatments that focus on releasing tension in the muscles, and have a scope of practice that spans “relaxation” to problem-solving and detailed full body assessments.

If you’re trying to choose between making your first appointment with a chiropractor or a massage therapist, at Lift Clinic it may not matter too much because if you see one and they feel the other will help you more, you can expect an honest opinion and a collaborative treatment approach.
