“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.
