Dr. Brittney Chisholm
Dr. Brittney Chisholm has been practicing in her hometown of Powell River since 2015. Brittney attended the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC graduating in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science: Life Science and Chemistry. During her degree she participated in an exchange program to the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia to study in a hands-on medical anatomy program. This experience instilled a passion for outdoor sports (surfing, rockclimbing, and diving) and furthered her interest in the human body and dysfunctional movement patterns.
In 2013 Brittney graduated magna cum laude with Clinical Honors from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, ON. During her 12-month internship she worked with under priviledged individuals and seniors at the South Riverdale Community Centre and had the opportunity to serve as medical volunteer for the 2008 Ontario Summer Games and for the FIFA World Cup Canada vs. Panama game. Upon graduation she practiced at a family chiropractic clinic in North York and a multidisciplinary sports centre in downtown Toronto.
Upon returning to Powell River she opened Origin Chiropractic & Orthopaedic Centre before a severe car accident changed her life and led her in to a solo practice at Malaspina Massage.
Recognizing holes in the current healthcare system, Dr. Chisholm endeavoured to open a one-stop-shop multidisciplinary treatment centre to streamline patient care. In summer 2019 Suncoast Integrated Health opened it’s doors with 11 health & wellness practitioners offering 20+ services under one roof.
Dr. Chisholm practices evidence-informed conservative chiropractic care – that means research and clinical experience guide her treatment plans which are customized for the individual following a thorough history and physical exam. She uses a variety of techniques in her treatment plans: manual muscle release, trigger point therapy, spinal manipulation (Diversified technique, Thompson drop-piece technique, and the light-touch Activator technique) exercise & rehabilitation, graded mobilizations, fascial manipulation and stripping, biomechanical corrections, postural and nutritional advice, and education.
