Chiropractic For the 21st Century
Early in his practice, Dr. Doug decided to bring the clinic into the 21st century in 2 significant ways:
First, to complement the hands-on treatments, he introduced state-of-the-art therapeutic technology into the practice. Impulse IQ Adjusting is a computerized adjusting system that is safe, comfortable, and consistent. It is perfect in complex cases and for patients who are not fond of the twisting and cracking of manual treatment. Another therapeutic technology is Bioflex – Low Intensity Laser Therapy (Cold Laser Therapy). This technology actually speeds recovery and is indicated in acute and chronic conditions. Low Intensity Laser Therapy is a great tool for patients who are not getting better.
Second, Dr. Doug created a team of high calibre health practitioners with diverse skills and committed to the goal of patient-centric, integrative care. Downtown Brampton Wellness Centre is now a well known wellness destination and Voted Best in Massage Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Orthotic Footwear & Acupuncture.
