Dr. Lucas Tisshaw is a born and raised in Vancouver chiropractor who uses joint mobilization and manipulation and soft tissue manipulation including myofascial release and instrument assisted massage therapy in his treatments. His approach to treatment focuses on imbalances and asymmetries of joints and muscles which can lead to pain or a decrease in our body systems (muscular system, nervous system, etc.) function by guiding the body to its natural state.
An initial visit revolves around careful listening and a thorough examination, leading to an anatomical explanation of your specific case followed by hands on therapy with the focus of individualized treatment.
Chiropractic treatment improves performance of daily activities and can help with postural pain, stiffness and soreness after a weekend of skiing, headaches, and many other physical stress conditions such as: acute and chronic sprains (ligaments), strains (muscles), postural imbalances, myofascial trigger points, muscle soreness, carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve entrapment leading to numbness and tingling, neck pain, back pain, jaw pain, IT Band syndrome, knee and foot pain, running pain, shoulder and elbow injuries, and ICBC injuries.
Combined with his widespread experience in sport, his extensive training in anatomy, and experience working with postural biomechanics, Dr. Lucas has knowledge of diagnosing and treating conditions of the feet, knees, hips, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and whiplash.
