Chiropractor in Downtown Vancouver : Dr. Glen Woodman
Twenty-eight years of experience.
I was instinctively drawn to Chiropractic as a profession in my first year of University because of its hands on, natural, drug free approach toward improving one’s health.
Growing up, I was very active and suffered a couple of sports injuries that responded well to chiropractic care. After the pain was gone, I was surprised to discover that continued chiropractic treatments not only prevented further problems, but actually helped me to perform better – and without it, I was not as fast or efficient as an athlete. As a result, I grew to appreciate the various ways that chiropractic can benefit individuals. “It’s not always just about the pain.”
It is a privilege to serve people who come to me seeking natural solutions to their health problems. From day one in chiropractic school, I have never looked back and recognize that it is a wonderful profession, one that fits my personality and skills very well.
I have been practicing for twenty seven years. I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, England, in 1989. At first I practiced in Sweden, then Oxford, England, for six years before coming to Vancouver. Previous to my European education, I did my undergraduate pre-med studies at the University of Western Ontario, Canada.
In my practice, our goal is to give patients options
After performing a thorough health history and physical exam, I sit down with my patients and actually show them the findings. Short- and long-term solutions are then explained, along with my own professional recommendation. After that, patients are asked to decide for themselves which treatment path they would like to take. My philosophy has always been — and always will be — to educate patients and allow them to make educated decisions about their health. I strongly believe that knowledge is power both for the practitioner and the patient.
