“Good health comes from within – not from the bottom of a pill bottle.”
Dr. Ali Akhavan, North Vancouver Chiropractor
A great believer in the innate intelligence of the human body, North Vancouver Chiropractor Dr. Ali Akhavan aims to bring balance and longevity to the body’s entire system through quality chiropractic care.
Dr. Akhavan was drawn into the chiropractic field after he experienced its fast and effective benefits for himself: “I was playing soccer for the North Shore Metro league when I suffered a hip injury,” he explains. “The doctor was prescribing medication, but the pain was not responding, so I went to see a chiropractor. The response after just one treatment was impressive, so I got very excited about chiropractic care and I wanted to learn more.”
Health and wellbeing have always been at the very heart of Dr. Akhavan’s passions. Having graduated with a Kinesiology degree from Simon Fraser University in 1990, he worked as a personal fitness trainer for three years before continuing his education and receiving a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Western States Chiropractic College, now the University of Western States, in Portland, Oregon. He has been in practice in North Vancouver since 1997.
At his North Vancouver chiropractic clinic Dr. Akhavan uses his skills to improve the lifestyles of patients young and old, from those who live day-to-day with chronic back issues, migraines and arthritis pain, to those who are suffering from neck pain, whiplash and disc herniation.
Dr. Akhavan’s North Vancouver chiropractic clinic offers its patients a fully integrated health model that utilizes medical diagnostic technology with various therapies that are safe, non-invasive, and effective.
“People are looking for natural alternatives to deal with their health problems,” adds Dr Akhavan. “They aren’t just going to their family doctor to get a prescription anymore. Once they go to a chiropractor, they realize that a chiropractor not only helps to alleviate their health problem, but that they feel generally healthier and they sleep better because their nervous system is working at its optimal capacity.
“Our role is to educate our patients that health comes from within – not from the bottom of a pill bottle.”
When he’s not busy helping his patients to achieve health and wellbeing, Dr Akhavan can be found spending quality time with his wife and two children, researching different natural health disciplines, or kicking a soccer ball around.
