Dr. Jenkins with Lighthouse Chiropractic and Integrative Health here!
We are a premier Chiropractic and Naturopathic office located in Landmark Building #4 in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia.
I’d like to take a minute or two to introduce myself and the team at Lighthouse. I’m a chiropractor that has been practicing for 23 years, 24 years going on this year. I started my career in Ontario, found the Okanagan and stayed put!
We started Lighthouse Chiropractic nine years ago. We’ve just recently added the Naturopathic side and will be continuing to expand over these next few months into even more areas of integrative health practice.
We also have Dr. Ken Adams. Dr. Ken, a chiropractor as well, who we also stole from Ontario (also spent a bit of time in the Greater Vancouver area). He is really great with kids, and on the complete opposite end of the spectrum he’s really talented at working with the elderly as well.
We have a very diverse chiropractic team. For example I’m doing my diplomate in spinal biomechanics and neurology. We have a really deep knowledge base to be able to help people with a variety of needs.
We’ve recently taken our digital X-ray suite and we’ve made space for Dr. Hailey Kanester. Dr. Hailey is an excellent naturopath. She has a speciality in gut health and immune support. Also, she focuses on adrenal support as well. These are big areas that a lot of people struggle with and she just gets fantastic results.
In the video you will notice that I am standing in front of what is called a Denneroll Table and Dr. Ken and I use that for more advanced spinal conditions. Things like spinal stenosis or more advanced arthritis.
We are seeing some really incredible changes, not only in patients symptoms if they’ve had leg weaknesses or radiating leg pain but also things like disc degeneration and disc injuries that they have always struggled with. This is a big help for us, in addition to the adjustments to get people healing not only more consistently, but those tough cases we actually get the break through and get to see them on the other side of that.
In the next area, you will see where Dr. Hailey does her IV work; so she will do things like Glutathione pushes, IV vitamin infusions and as well as more traditional things like vitamin B12 shots. Glutathione is becoming really important for people who may have had some type of post concussion challenge so we’re trying to get the memory back and getting those brain cells functioning again. It really helps the brain heal. If it’s IV vitamins when people are having difficulty absorbing their vitamins. Traditional oral vitamins don’t work so they need to start off by having an IV. So then the gut can heal so they can absorb more traditional vitamins. There are some really neat strategies now for a lot of conditions that maybe a decade ago, really there wasn’t a lot of hope for.
If you’re looking to upgrade your chiropractic experience or maybe you’ve never tried chiropractic or naturopathy before, give us a call at (250) 870-9136. We would love to sit down and talk with you and see if there are some strategies that we’ve got at Lighthouse that can help you reach your important health goals.
