First of all, kinesiologists in British Columbia are tested under some of the highest regulations within North America. They provide safe and effective movement recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs.

A kinesiologist has a 4 year university degree and can focus on several area for their professional career. Performance based training with athletes is a popular option but more commonly kinesiology graduates are looking for a more personal and sometimes a more rewarding career in a clinical setting.

Kinesiology Services at Lighthouse is very focused on proper spinal biomechanics, posture and foundational movement patterns that will allow you to train and perform at a higher level with strength and confidence.

We are clear to point out that not all of our clients are training for a triathlon or ultra marathon.

Most of our clients are moms and dads, or brothers and sisters who are looking to be their best. That could be at the gym (or in the garden) or just trying to keep up with a growing, active family.

Our kinesiologists are guided by evidence-based science that supports the whole individual, not just your current condition. At Lighthouse we want to shine a light on your best self, not just focus on your most recent injury.

Our Unique Approach

We are not your average Chiropractic Clinic! Our approach is unique and different compared to most health care offices.

From the moment you step into Lighthouse you will understand the difference. From friendly and efficient service by our administrative staff to meeting with your Doctor for the new patient experience, no detail is missed.

The doctor will have reviewed the history information that you provided, and will ask you a series of questions about your symptoms, but more importantly will really listen to your concerns and health challenges.

Your evaluation will consist of a number of diagnostic procedures depending on your case. Some of the procedures used include digital postural analysis, spinal ranges of motion using a digital inclinometer, grip strength assessment, orthopedic tests, neurologic tests, palpation, and hospital grade digital X-rays if needed.

Our doctors are determined to identify with confidence any distortion in your spine (posture) that could be causing your current symptoms, and impacting your overall health.

If we can help, we will provide intelligent solutions to your health concerns. We use current and effective techniques including manual and instrument assisted chiropractic adjustments, in-office traction, and we provide simple but effective home rehabilitation exercises.

In some cases, your doctor will recommend our other services such as registered massage therapy, cold laser, shockwave, assisted stretching, or kinesiology.

Ultimately, we would love to simplify your health care, help you leave the noise behind, and provide hope for you and your family to be some of the healthiest people you know!
