MYo Lab is an all-around clinic with chiropractic, massage therapy, and gym training for improving mobility, fitness, and quality of life. It opens its doors to all Calgarians as it doesn’t require any referrals before accepting clients.
When it comes to chiropractic care, this Calgary clinic offers common techniques such as flexion-distraction, active release, and Graston technique. Its treatments are even approved for treating motor vehicle accidents and worker’s compensation board conditions.
To carry out such diverse chiropractic approaches, MYo Lab has three Calgary chiropractors. Each chiropractor has a specialty, so women and athletes with specialized needs can still rely on this chiropractor.
MYo Lab offers customized personal training and group fitness routines, so that customers can maintain their pain-free and agile bodies even after chiropractic and massage treatments. It even has a gym that its customers can use.
Best of all, MYo Lab is open on weekends and late evenings on weekdays. However, it opens later than other clinics.
Additionally, this clinic accepts same-day, last-minute, and even walk-in appointments, which we find adds to its overall accessibility. It does have strict cancellation policies where fees will be required, so make sure you can attend your appointment after requesting one.
Patient and professional
“While my first visit was over a year ago for an acute injury, I’ve been receiving treatments for the past six months with Dr. Evan and massage with Zack for an overuse and general neglect neck and shoulder pain and discomfort. I can say that while I’ve experienced many chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage therapy professionals over the years, MYoLab are right up there with the best. They take the time to narrow in on the problem, and work as a true team to relieve it. Yes, there is work one must do on one’s own, but these guys are patient, professional and truly want patients to recover to their best self. Thankful to MYoLab for their great work helping me back to where I want and need to be!”—Mark Greenwald
Caring, competent and highly observant
“I’m getting physiotherapy (Dan Lawson) and chiro ( Dr. Evan) for an SI joint dysfunction. The exercises retraining muscle groups and the adjustments are making a big difference in the stability of my pelvis. I can feel progress! Both Dan and Dr. Evan are caring, competent and highly observant. The clinic is united in their goal of patient wellness and proper movement! Highly recommended”—Linda Varro

Cummings Chiropractic Family Wellness is just as its name suggests because its services are available for all ages. This clinic has doctors and healthcare practitioners for prenatal, pediatric, orthopedic, and chiropractic care.
When it comes to chiropractic, this clinic primarily does the Activator method and diversified method.
It also helps those with whiplash, auto injuries, and dizziness with shockwave therapy, spinal decompression, and manual exercises. To address other musculoskeletal issues, this clinic also does custom orthotics and custom knee braces.
The clinic also boasts of its payment convenience as it does direct billing to most insurance providers. Besides, Cummings Chiropractic Family Wellness even posts on its website the exact fees for its services.
The only thing that we find may put this clinic behind is that it only has one chiropractor in its team, Dr. Grant Cummings. He is a chiropractor who has received Certification in the Evaluation of Disability and Impairment Ratings (CEDIR) to help those with long-term effects from injuries.
With his level of expertise and customer service, Dr. Cummings is sought by many others just like you. So, be sure to book your schedule ahead of time, especially since the clinic has limited opening hours.
Knowledgeable and helps by educating you on your specific ailment
“It’s been some time since I have had to see Dr. Cummings, but my experience has always been an excellent one. He is knowledgeable and helps by educating you on your specific ailment rather then just doing a correction and sending you out the door. He truly cares about his patients and has extended his services at no charge when I was in financial difficulty, how many doctors have done that for you? He is super friendly and always makes you feel welcome.”—David and Mary Anne Edwards
Reliable and caring chiropractor
“Dr Cummings and his team are the absolute best. I have been to several chiropractors and physiotherapists and found no relief. Dr Cummings takes the time to really listen to you. He is very concerned about your well being and works hard with you. His staff are wonderful. Always polite and accommodating. I cant say enough good about this office. If you are looking for a reliable and caring chiropractor please check out this team.”—Sara Scott

Clients also get the chance to choose which chiropractor they want before scheduling their appointment. Its online booking forms also show when each healthcare provider is available so you can time your visits accordingly.

Superb chiropractic office
“I was looking for a new Chiropractor and a friend of mine suggested the Chiropractic Center for Health and Dr. John. I am so impressed by the excellent service received right from the first time I walked in the door. I was greeted by very friendly assistants and the Dr.’s are fantastic. They really listen to your concerns and try to address each one on a case by case basis. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a superb chiropractic office.”—Linda Pierce
Improvement in mobility and circulation

Ascent Integrative Health is yet another clinic offering all sorts of treatments to improve client range of mobility and function. Among its many services are chiropractic, massage therapy, physiotherapy, and acupuncture.
What sets Ascent apart is that its four chiropractors are very active and sports themselves and have even worked with Olympians and other professional athletes.
So, it makes sense that the clinic also groups treatments together for special clinic programs like TPI-certified golf assessments, concussion management, and private knee clinic. Ascent also teaches strength exercises to maintain results from chiropractic care and massage therapy.
We also like that Ascent Integrative Health displays the availability of its chiropractors. So, clients can schedule accordingly with their chosen chiropractor.
If you plan on visiting this clinic, just make sure to free up your weekday as it has limited opening hours on weekends and no weekday evening schedules.
Luckily, Ascent Integrative Health still offers telehealth appointments through video sessions. So, existing patients who can’t physically visit the location can still receive consultations remotely.
“Hands down the best chiropractic experience I’ve had. I saw Dr. Scott Fisher with my three young kids today. The clinic is beautiful, but the best part is I love the holistic approach the clinic takes to improving your overall health and wellness by offering staff with extensive knowledge and are focused on range of motion…… the mic drop moment was when we discussed my golf game and that Dr Fisher could help my range of motion to help me with my game, if he could just knock off about 5 strokes from my game I’d come everyday. Seriously this place is for anyone but in particular for those that health and wellness are important to. Thank you Ricki and Scott!!!”—Melissa Holbrook
Thorough with assessment
“Roger has been so incredibly helpful for me! I’m a therapist myself and have been around many chiro’s because of it, so I’m super picky with who I see and what I want. Roger is super personable and always has good energy, which makes going in always a fun time. He’s thorough with assessment (making sure to get to the root cause of issues), takes the needed time for treatment, and always educates on what’s going on/why/how to do your part at home. I can’t recommend him enough!”—Chelsey Schiller

It offers chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and pelvic health therapy. Life ‘n Wellness even has a massage therapy membership for those who want relaxing treatments from the clinic on a regular basis.
We also like that Life N’ Balance has counselling services that can truly help its clients make a path to holistic healing.
Life ‘n Balance’s chiropractic team is composed of three chiropractors. These chiropractors even extend their expertise as they also provide prenatal care and help with mental health wellness.
So, it’s also no surprise that this clinic offers its chiropractic services even to seniors and children.
Another great thing about this clinic is that its chiropractic and other services are certified by WCB and MVA. Life N’ Balance also does direct billing to numerous insurance providers to make its injured patients’ lives a little easier.
However, you should know that we’ve heard and read some complaints about its rude reception staff. So, keep this in mind should you call to schedule an appointment or ask your concerns.
Clean, serene, and very professional
“Clean, serene, and very professional (damn, I really wish there was something that rhymed with serene). The staff are awesome and booking is easy. Plus they direct bill to benefits so they get you out and on your way quickly. Massage with Lana was incredible. She actually asked if it was okay is she worked on my back for a few minutes longer since it was is such rough shape. Um… yeah, you can! If you’re in the SW, this place should be your go-to. If you’re not in the SW, then it’s worth the trip.”—Todd Blevins
Level of service is unmatched
“Life n Balance is a great clinic with a variety of services. Both Lana (massage) and Dr. Doug (chiro) were very thorough and informative. The level of service is unmatched. They aim to treat the cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. They both gave recommendations for stretches to maximize their treatments well beyond the session. Sara at reception is always kind and welcoming. They direct bill and will answer any questions you might have. 10/10 recommend. I have been going here for years now!”—Katelin Switzer

This clinic is home to two of the best chiropractors in Calgary, Dr. Mark Peverrett and Dr. Barry Gjerdrum. However, you won’t be able to choose in its online forms which chiropractor to see.
Its chiropractic services are even available for children and pregnant women. Such services are possible because Chaparral Chiropractic’s resident chiropractor, Dr. Mark, has received thorough training from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and Epic Pediatrics program.
For full pain relief without the need for surgery or medications, Chaparral also does massage therapies and acupuncture. It even sells products like vitamins and probiotics for those who want a healthier diet for overall wellness.
The only problem you may encounter with this clinic is its lesser availability. We say this because it’s only available on weekdays and only has two chiropractors on-site.
Luckily, Chaparral Chiropractic Wellness Centre is open on alternating Saturdays, and you need only call them to ask about this schedule. Before booking an appointment, you can even check for the pricing on its website.
Desire to work with me to help me get better
“Chaparral Chiropractic Wellness Centre has an entire array of services to either keep you healthy or help you achieve wellness in your life. I have been very pleased with Dr Mark as a Chiropractor. It has been only a few months since I started going to the Centre but I immediately felt the vibrancy and friendliness from the beginning. The desire to work with me to help me get better. I have yet to use the massage or acupuncture services but I plan to soon. I highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking to make a difference in their life.”—Donna Crowder
Gentle enough but effective
“Warm friendly staff and office. Dr. Barry is very knowledgeable and his adjustments are gentle enough but effective and leave me feeling better than when I walked through the door. I love that when I receive regular adjustments I have noticeably improved immune function.”—Mandy McMullan

Before even conducting chiropractic adjustments, this clinic offers initial consultations for free! Do know that this free consultation is relatively time-constrained, so make sure you ready your questions and pain descriptions before visiting the clinic.
And should you want to continue availing of its services, you can also prepare financially since Shephard Health has its pricing posted on its website. You can also book online to choose an appropriate schedule and a chiropractor.
And the best thing we found out about Shephard Health is that it accepts walk-in appointments for those who need immediate relief from spinal pain.
Each one of them plays a role in committing to my recovery goals
“Dr. Jay and his amazing staff have been simply incredible during my treatment and recovery process after being involved in a motor vehicle accident. They have a great team atmosphere and I genuinely feel like each one of them plays a role in committing to my recovery goals. They treat patients and each other with smiles and positivity every time I’ve been there which makes me feel so much more comfortable even when I’m going in for adjustments. The range of additional therapies that they have to improve the healing process is also very impressive, and I believe it demonstrates their commitment to their patients recovery and wellness. Thanks again Dr. Jay!”—Bridget Currier
Personable and attentive in understanding your pain
“I have been on the hunt for a chiropractor that I trust and believe in to help alleviate the chronic back pain that I have had for a few years. I’ve tried many different chiropractors, but usually I’ve been disappointed by either their generic approach(five minutes of adjustments and send you out the door), or their inability to help my back pain. I’ve had two weeks with Jay and I can confidently say that my back pain is trending towards recovery. Jay is personable and attentive in understanding your pain and making a plan to correct it. I appreciate that in just one session, you could experience shockwave therapy, graston method, adjustments, decompression table, laser therapy, and active release.”—Tyler Sutherland

Unique and profound, making each treatment exceptional
“I love Dr.Greg Driedger. He is the best Chiropracter Ive had in my life because he is very knowledgeable and treats my body as a whole. His approach is unique and profound, making each treatment exceptional. He has a wonderful, loving energy and makes each patient feel special. You are not just another patient, he takes his time to understand and fully acknowledge all your body has gone through.”—Judith Pop
I never have to wait too long for a response if I have a question
“I have been seeing Dr. Greg in some capacity since 2010. First along side another Doctor, and then Dr. Greg alone and he has saved my life. I am able to be far more active and healthy because of him. He is beyond knowledgable, professional, and just plain smart. I trust him because he knows the body and how it works. I am beyond happy to be seeing him now at McKenzie Lake – the office staff is incredibly accessible and I never have to wait too long for a response if I have a question about my body or about getting an appointment.

Since its chiropractic adjustments are mostly for medical conditions, Northern Hills Chiropractic also does direct billing. However, it still requires your credit card details as a safety net.

We also like that Northern Hills has hours extending as late as 7 PM on most weekdays. Still, it closes early on Fridays and Saturdays and is closed on Sundays.
Warm positive atmosphere
“I’ve been coming here for years; & I always feel welcomed & respected everytime I walk through their doors. They’ve treated me well everytime in addressing any specific issues I’m feeling & giving me an adjustment to make sure everything is loose & where its supposed to be. We’ve always been friendly with each other; & you can feel the warm positive atmosphere as soon as you walk inside. If you or anyone you know is looking for a chiropractor; I’d definitely recommend giving them a call. They’ll do there best to accommodate to you schedule & answer any questions you might have along the way”—Michael Woloschuk
Genuinely cares about patients and takes the time to answer all questions
“I highly recommend Dr. John at Northern Hills Chiropractic! I’ve been seeing Dr. John since early 2020 – he is hands down the best chiropractor I have seen! I’ve been to other places where they bring people in and out faster then you can blink; where they just care about money and pushing numbers through. This is not the case at Northern Hills. Dr. John genuinely cares about his patients and takes the time to answer all their questions and address their needs. I leave feeling great, and I find I don’t need to go as often because the care I do receive is quality care and it works for my body. They are always so welcoming here too, I feel right at home.”—Kaleigh Field

Douglasdale Family Chiropractor is also a chiropractic clinic that’s open for all ages. It aims to improve health and wellness not only through chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and orthotics but also nutritional counselling.
This clinic has two chiropractors, Dr. Darren Scheirman and Dr. Cole Bishop who have years of chiropractic practice.
Dr. Scheirman also has experience being the team chiropractor of football teams, rugby clubs, wrestling teams, and track and field teams. As such, Douglasdale’s chiropractic treatments are suitable for treating back and neck pain, knee injuries, headaches, and migraines.
To treat these conditions, Douglasdale mostly does the Diversified technique. Moreover, it does activator methods and the Thompson drop technique.
And to help you know if they’re the right fit for you, Douglasdale even does free consultations.
Douglasdale also does direct billing to insurance providers for your convenience. However, unlike other clinics with direct insurance billing, Douglasdale only does this service for a few insurance providers.
In addition to this limitation, Douglasdale is unavailable on Sundays and Saturday afternoons like many other clinics.
Friendly and competent staff
“This clinic is fantastic. Dr Darren is the best. I was scared to have my neck cricked and insisted on them using the activator. Dr. Darren worked with me and took the time to get me used to having him crick my neck. I am now comfortable with this and have been for several years now. I have been seeing Dr. Darren since he came to Calgary and will not see anyone else. The girls on the front desk are very friendly and are very competent in what they do. I have met both of the other chiropractors but have never been treat by them. They are both very nice. I would recommend that anyone who needs a chiropractor, they should go see the team at Douglasdale Family Chiropractic, they are the best” – Mary A Smith
Always professional and knowledgeable
“Me and my husband have been coming to Douglasdale Family Chiropractic for our health needs for a few years now. The Doctors and the staff are always professional, knowledgable and it’s easy to book an appointment. I have had other Chiropractor’s in the past that have hurt me or did not listen to my concerns, this has never happened at this clinic. I highly recommend going to Douglasdale Family Chiropractic if you are needing help with your health. Truely this is the place to go.”–Sherisse Ann

For those who want custom care plan options, Cūro Chiropractic may be the clinic for you. This clinic offers chiropractic adjustments by optimizing four essentials, namely spinal health, movement, nutrition, mindset, and minimizing toxins.
Its healthcare plans start with a complete health history and initial exam. Here, patients undergo a range of motion assessments, weight analysis, posture analysis, muscle tension measurement, and x-rays if necessary.
Then, Cūro provides a personalized care plan complete with chiropractic treatment scheduling, lifestyle tips, and home exercises. The last step of this process is the reassessment that ensures chiropractic adjustments are effective and practical for your case.
Additionally, Cūro Chiropractic also offers free health workshops for those who want to continue the results from their chiropractic adjustments. The best thing is that all these services are available even to those with MVA injuries, without any referral needed.
Those who want to undergo such a detailed and effective process can simply book an initial consultation online. Do know that you can’t exactly schedule via these forms, but you can still provide your preferred time and date.
Additionally, these online forms don’t allow you to choose which chiropractor, whether Dr. Sohan Fonseka or Dr. Keith Belliveau, you want for your treatment.
Peaceful atmosphere full of positive energy

Cadence Chiropractic, Sport, & Health prides itself on its high success rates of resolving musculoskeletal pain and MVA injuries. It has four doctors with two of them as registered chiropractors, Dr. Ryan Emmons and Dr. Angela Pucci.
Both chiropractors have trained and practiced chiropractic care for many athletes. And you should know, Cadence’s Dr. Emmons even has a TPI certification and a personal trainer certification that show just how much athlete patients can trust him.
Aside from chiropractic treatments, Cadence also does gait analysis, food sensitivity testing, acupuncture, orthotics, and even prolotherapy. All these treatments help its patients receive proper diagnosis and treatment for their conditions.
Since it mostly does chiropractic adjustments for medical reasons, this clinic makes sure to also take care of the insurance billing process.
While it’s only open half a day on Saturdays, at least it has hours extending as late as 7:30 PM on weekdays.
To schedule an appointment, you can simply answer its online contact form. However, this form doesn’t ask for your preferred schedule or chiropractor.
Dr. Ryan was great at educating me
“When I first started going to Dr. Ryan I was surprised to learn that his treatment style was different than other Chiropractors I had seen in the past. He combined Active Release Techniques as well as adjustments. Once I was introduced to Active Release, I was sold. The reason for my first visit to Ryan was a sore lower back when I did squats. After one treatment of Active Release on my hip flexors, my squat increased dramatically in terms of how much weight I could lift. I didn’t have a clue that hip flexors even existed and Dr.Ryan was great at educating me on the WHY this was happening. As I prepare for my first fitness competition, training hard is part of the recipe and I know that seeing Ryan will be a key in my progress. I would recommend Ryan to anyone that is looking to fix injuries and to progress in any fitness activity. Thanks Ryan!”—Katie
She (Dr. Angela) takes the time to hear your issues
“I’ve been getting treatments from Dr. Angela for a few years and she always provides the complete package to get me back in top form. She doesn’t crack you and send you out the door, she takes the time to hear your issues and help you work through them with a combination of ART, chiro, stretching, excercises and nutritional advice. I’ve had knee problems for years and thanks to Dr. Angela’s help, I just completed my first 10K race pain free!”—Shannon
16. Campbell Chiropractic and Wellness
|ADDRESS||#101, 132, 1st Ave NW, Airdrie AB T4B 3H4|

Tuesday, Wednesday: 3:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Campbell Chiropractic and Wellness is an Airdrie-based chiropractic clinic providing pain relief for those with chronic back pain, neck pain, and arthritis. While it isn’t exactly based in the city, it still caters to Calgarians and other Albertans in its surrounding areas.
Before providing any adjustments, Dr. Campbell of this clinic does thorough examinations to diagnose your condition and find out your exact needs. The assessment even includes a Myovision scan to check muscle activity and the extent of inflammation.
To maintain the results from previous chiropractic adjustments, Campbell Chiropractic also makes nutritional supplements and braces available to their customers.
What we like about this clinic is that its initial appointment pricing already includes costs for assessment and initial treatment. Besides costs for treatment can also be paid easily as Campbell Chiropractic does direct insurance billing.
On the other hand, we don’t like how inaccessible Campbell Chiropractic’s services can be due to its limited opening hours and days, even compared to other clinics’ limited working hours. To make up for its late opening hours, Campbell is at least open until as late as 8 PM.
And unfortunately, it doesn’t really have online appointment scheduling forms. So, you’ll need to call it first before driving to its location.
Takes time to get to know you and your issues
“Dr. Campbell is amazing! She actually takes the time to get to know you and your issues to tailor your appointment to your needs. She worked miracles on my foot after eight weeks of physio amounted to nothing. Can’t praise her enough.”—Jennifer Brousseau Innes
Top-notch and committed
“Amazing doctor and care! Top notch and committed to improving health!”—Jeremy Morgan
So so wonderful
“Dr.Campbell is SO SO wonderful! She has fixed me far too many times.”—Teresa W

With many options offered, the clinic can cater to adults, pregnant women, and children alike.
All these techniques are carried out with precision and expertise, thanks to the three chiropractors Movement Performance & Health has
For most cases, Movement Performance & Health can proceed with treatment during the initial appointment. Of course, they’ll first conduct various diagnostic tests.
But what really sets Movement Performance & Health apart from other clinics is that it’s available all week and has opening hours extending as late as 8 PM.
To avail of its services, you can simply schedule an appointment online. You can even choose any of its best chiropractors in Calgary on its online forms.
Truly tries to help you with any issues you’ve been having
“I highly recommend MPH for a variety of services. I’ve been seeing Dr. Hayer (chiro) and Shelley Hoffart (massage) for well over a year and their services are amazing. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, as well as they truly try to help you with any issues you’ve been having. I’ve been treated for sports injuries, musculoskeletal problems, and general aches/pains and I truly cannot say enough positive things about their diagnostics and treatments.”—Aiden McBean
Listens to patient concerns and gentle with patients
“Highly recommend Dr. Samantha de Castro for chiropractic care. I have had a bad experience where I was injured at a chiropractor in the past, so I was very nervous to visit a chiropractor again. Dr. de Castro completely changed my perception. She took the time to assess my issues, listen to my concerns, and has been so gentle with me. If you are at all hesitant about trying out chiropractic care, I would highly recommend Dr. de Castro.”—Jessica McLeod

Providing all sorts of manipulative therapies, 360 BodyBrain is open for those looking for chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage therapies.
It has two Calgary chiropractors, Dr. Corrado Cultura and Dr. Jacquelyn Perron, offering adjustments and reassessments for adults, students, and even children.
These chiropractors are also certified in ART, dynamic neuromuscular stabilization (DNS), functional movement therapy, and the Graston technique. Dr. Cultura even uses 3D technology for evaluation, thus helping athletes improve recovery from injuries or overall performance.
Aside from doing direct billing to major insurance providers, 360 BrainBody also makes payments less of a hassle as it accepts numerous online payment schemes. Payment is also collected after each appointment, so you won’t have to worry about upfront costs.
Another way that 360 BrainBody delivers convenience is by offering virtual telehealth options.
360 BrainBody also makes itself more and more accessible, catering to those who can come only during evenings or early mornings. However, it still is closed on Sundays and holidays.
To add to this minor con, we’ve read that 360 Brain Body has a relatively cramped waiting area. This may be among the reasons why the clinic doesn’t allow patients to bring others and why it advises against arriving too early at the clinic.
Warm and inviting vibe
“I go to 360 for Physio therapy, Massage therapy and Chiropractics. The space is warm, inviting and has a vibe that makes it feel very safe and professional. I love that I can go to 1 place and have all the professionals be able to work with each other in order to give me the best care possible. The online booking system makes it so simple to find a time that works with a busy schedule. I would recommend this clinic for everyone but especially those who appreciate how the mind and body are connected.”—Elyse Hnatiuk
“This is the first time I have ever been to an Osteopath and the results were amazing I have had back and neck pain for years. I have tried absolutely everything from nerve ablation, cortizone injections, various Chiropractic treatments…and the list goes on! The very first visit to see Clare made me feel normal (without pain) for the first time in a year, I suffer from Osteoarthritis in my neck and! She is very skilled and gifted in her healing practise. I would highly recommend Clare Login at 360 BrainBody”—Lori Meier
19. Divine Spine Macleod Trail
|SERVICES||Musculoskeletal care, spine and joint therapy, computerized treatment for back or neck pain|
|ADDRESS||Unit 200 8835 MacLeod Trail SW|
|CONTACT DETAILS||(403) 457-3714|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday: 2:00 PM – 6:30 PM|
Tuesday: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Wednesday: 2:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Thursday: 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM – 6:30 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Divine Spine Macleod Trail is one of the 19 locations of the bigger chiropractic clinic chain of the same name.
As part of a bigger chain, it has access to state-of-the-art technology. This clinic thus provides computerized adjustments which use gentle motions to ease back pain, neck pain, headache, sciatica and restore mobility.
Divine Spine simply uses a small device that uses a precise oscillating force that can safely and gently adjust individual spinal joints without cracking the spine. This gentle yet effective force can thus free any nerve interference without the inherent risks of chiropractic.
That said, Divine Spine only offers this one option for spinal adjustment. So, if you want more options and more physically manipulative treatment, this clinic may not be what you need.
Aside from its modern chiropractic technology, we also like that Divine Spine has a virtual tour of its location. With this feature, clients can gauge whether or not Divine Spine’s clinic is a place where they can relax.
Very accommodating with patient concerns
“I was so hesitant to go to chiropractor because of the cracking of joints but Dr. Andrea has a different way of treating chiropractic concerns. Dr. Andrea is very accommodating with my concerns she always has the answers to it and for sure delivers an excellent service. Thank you so much. At Divine Spine I always have a very good experience. Staffs are very welcoming, very nice and friendly ..and they always have beautiful smile on their faces esp. Meghan. Excellent customer service and plus the place is always clean. Thank you! 😊”—D’Sea Phleb
“Dr. Andrea is amazing. I’ve been seeing her for over 2 years now and have nothing but the best to say. Highly recommended. I previously saw her at an older clinic, and even though she is now at Divine Spine, which is a bit further away from me, I make time to see her. Divine Spine on MacLeod Trail has lots of parking and is easily accessible. Getting regular chiropractic care from Dr. Andrea has helped me enjoy my life. I used to suffer from constant headaches, but now getting regular adjustments have helped so much. She is a great human being and very easy to talk to. She takes time to listen about your concerns and also has great recommendations and insight. Seeing her regularly has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself. If you are looking into getting chiropractic care – or if you haven’t been to one, please see Dr. Andrea, and you will be thankful that you did.”—Laarni Harper
20. Dr. Karen Quinn

Wednesday – Thursday: 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Friday: 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Saturday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
If you’re looking for another clinic where you can bring your whole family, then Dr. Karen Quinn’s clinic may be the right place for you.
Dr. Quinn uses gentle techniques that are suitable as part of holistic pediatric, prenatal, and postnatal wellness care plans.
And to make sure that each client receives treatment appropriate for their condition and health status, Dr. Quinn conducts thorough assessments. The process already includes comprehensive health history, digital postural assessment, orthopedic and neurological testing during the initial assessment.
Students and seniors even get discounts. This is incredibly helpful especially since Dr. Quinn doesn’t do direct billing.
This chiropractor also offers telehealth consultations for at-home exercises and nutritional recommendations. Additionally, Dr. Quinn offers yoga workshops, which you can even turn into your corporate wellness workshops.
Most of all, we like that all of Dr. Quinn’s prices are posted on her website and are present in online booking forms. Although, her initial assessment pricing doesn’t usually include costs for initial treatment.
But as its name may have tipped, this clinic only has one chiropractor. This limitation paired with the clinic’s limited working hours makes Dr. Quinn’s chiropractic practice inaccessible at times.
Always puts her client first
“Knowledgable, caring and compassionate. Dr. Quinn is more than a chiropractor. She is a healer. What’s more is that she focuses on finding root causes to prevent issues before they happen. Dr. Quinn will always put her client first. That translates into high client trust.”—Jeff Kahane
Compassionate and knowledgeable
“I didn’t realize how helpful chiropractic care was until Karen took the time to help me understand. She has the compassion to hear my concerns fully, and a wealth of knowledge to keep the bigger picture of my long term health in mind. And her whole body approach has supported me to a healthier lifestyle, not just getting out of pain. She’s so approachable, genuine, and present. I’m very grateful I found her!”—Ali Frederick

Like many other clinics, Chiropractical is open on weekdays but is only available for half the day on Fridays. So, make sure to find a free weekday before booking an appointment with this clinic.
Speaking of booking appointments, do know that Chiropractical also has convenient online booking forms. While these forms allow you to choose your doctor and input your preferred date and time, you can’t really see the pricing for your appointment.
You are made to feel welcome and like family.
“From the moment you walk in and are greeted all the way through to your appointment, you are made to feel welcome and like family. I have had the privilege of seeing Dr. Don, Dr. Dan as well as Dr. Watt and I can’t say enough great things. The office is always clean, the doctors are always welcoming and friendly. If you are someone who feels more comfortable with a woman, then Dr. Jenny is who you should see. I am so fortunate to have found this place! Definitely recommend”—Jackie Maxwell
Explained what he was doing, how things were going to work, and what I could expect
“Dr. Don is amazing. I went in on a recommendation after many years of pain that other Doctors could not figure out. When I first went I was at one of the peaks of my pain. Dr. Don explained what he was doing, how things were going to work, and what I could expect. He put this nervous nancy at ease from the first minute. It has been a month and I am beyond pleased with my treatment, the kindness of the people in the office, and the understanding that they have. I highly recommend this office to everyone.”—Laura James

Memorial Drive Chiropractic and Massage also provides gentle chiropractic adjustments. This clinic is home to one of the best Calgary chiropractors, Dr. Ryan Wagemakers.
For a fully thorough assessment of your condition and health history, Memorial Drive Chiropractic does a two-visit approach for initial assessments. The first visit is dedicated to the assessment while the second session is for the discussion of findings and treatment plan.
While it does lessen the time per session, this two-visit approach may not be suitable for everyone. On the bright side, it allows Dr. Wagemakers to have a detailed study of your condition.
What we also like about this clinic is that its treatments are approved by the Workers’ Compensation Board. So, those who have workplace injuries can approach Memorial Drive Chiropractic and Massage for the best chiropractic care.
Dr. Wagemakers also accepts clients with MVA injuries. And for a truly accessible practice, Memorial Drive Chiropractic is also open for entire families, so you can also bring children to the clinic for minor adjustments.
Fair pricing and knowledgeable
“I felt pain on my knee and decided to go to a chiropractor. Didn’t know which one I should go, so I just searched a chiropractor nearby where I live on Sunlife Lumino site, which was pretty cool btw because it gives rating for the practitioners. The place is clean, the receptionist is very friendly and the chiropractor himself, Dr. Wagemakers is very good and patient. After one visit, my knee felt so much better! Dr. Wagemakers definitely knows his stuff. I believe his pricing is very fair. If you don’t have a chiropractor or need a change, I recommend you to visit Dr. Wagemakers!”—Jacque D
Highly recommended, great communication
“Dr Wagemakers is a great at taking care of our families needs for spinal health. He takes the time needed to ensure we get adjusted proper. Anytime issues arise he helps ensure our body has the best chance at healing itself. Chelsey is awesome at massages. Worked all kinds of kinks out on my back. She checks in if it’s hurting too much or if she needs to dig deeper. Clean room. Washrooms are available to customers. Ample parking. Elevators to second floor. Great communication from the receptionist. Highly recommend them. Prices are below and they can direct bill if needed! I’ll follow up with how the orthotics are shortly, I just ordered two pairs from them.”—Mark Powers

|OPERATING HOURS||Monday – Thursday: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM, 2:15 PM – 6:00 PM|
Friday: 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
With more than two decades of experience serving Calgary, Dalhousie Family Chiropractic is yet another family-friendly chiropractic clinic. This clinic is thus open for children, pregnant moms, and other members of the family.
Dalhousie Family Chiropractic is run by chiropractor Dr. Jerry Smuszko, a family man himself who knows just what adults and children alike need. His main focus is on treating migraines and headaches, but he can also help those with back pain, neck pain, and sciatica.
Dr. Smuszko does the diversified technique, active release therapy, instrument-based arthrotism, and activator methods.
Before providing any treatment, Dr. Smuszko does thorough diagnostic tests and health history checks. Dalhousie even features an on-site digital X-ray to make thorough assessments convenient for you.
However, know that we’ve read some complaints about the clinic’s environment, particularly with the lack of privacy during spinal adjustments. So, should you choose this clinic, try talking to your chiropractor about this.
Another limitation of Dalhousie is that it only has one chiropractor and is closed on weekends and Friday afternoons. Additionally, booking appointments online require login.
Benefits go WAY beyond just relieving back pain
“When my son was six he started to complain of a sore back. I thought it was just growing pains as he was a very active child and it wasn’t consistent pain at the time. When he turned 7 his back pain really started to increase in severity. Finally, I was introduced to the wonders of chiropractic and he began care with Dr. Jerry. After thorough neurological and orthopedic testing, it was discovered that my son was suffering from scoliosis! Not knowing much about scoliosis, I was overwhelmed and honestly a bit scared, but Dr. Jerry talked with my son and I and explained the ways that chiropractic care can help and now almost 3 years later he is no longer complaining about back pain and he is able to be a kid again and keep up with his friends and get a restful sleep at night! He still goes in regularly for treatment as the benefits go WAY beyond just relieving back pain. In fact, my whole family is now under care!”—Alicia Scanland
All around really caring and supportive
“Dalhousie Family Chiropractic has been phenomenal since day 1. All of the staff are really great and friendly and all around really caring and supportive. I have been seeing both Dr Eric and Dr Jerry for just a short while but they are both phenomenal and the real cool thing is no matter who you see they are knowledgeable on what’s going on so you are not restricted to just seeing one of them and having to juggle the time to fit it in. You can book for anytime and know you are well looked after no matter who you see. I highly recommend them!”—Bryon Schmidt
Different Chiropractic Techniques
There are numerous types of chiropractic techniques, and these types are the most common ones. Chiropractors use different techniques depending on their expertise and what your body needs.
1. Activator Method
The activator method uses a special device, the activator, to send short and gentle pulses in your extremities and other affected areas. This manual treatment prevents your body from tensing and your joints from bending.
This method can help those with lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Now, if you have several spinal conditions such as disc injuries, back pain, leg pain, and sciatica, then Flexion Distraction may be good for you. This fixes disc misalignments by distracting and flexing the spine with manual therapy and rhythmic motion from a special table.
3. Gonstead Technique
This manual hands-on technique restores spinal alignment and improves mobility. During Gonstead Technique, your chiropractor will focus on your lower pelvis or pelvis while you’re lying or your side or back.
4. Drop Technique
The drop technique or Thompson technique also restores spinal alignment through manual manipulation.
It utilizes a special table that drops a fraction of an inch with every thrusting motion. This slight drop feels like a vibration, adding to the relaxing element of the chiropractic adjustment.
5. Extremity Manipulation
Chiropractic isn’t just for spinal pain relief as it can also relieve pressure and pain from joints with extremity manipulation. During this type of treatment, your chiropractor will manipulate joints in your elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.
6. Spinal Manipulation/Mobilization
Spinal manipulation or decompression aims to improve function and reduce pain in the spine. This method works by gently stretching the spine and improving the flow of water, oxygen, and nutrients through your spine.
