DR. Paul Dhaliwal
MSc, DC – Certified Sports Chiropractor
I am a certified sports chiropractor working in Burnaby, BC. It is my passion to help patients get out of pain with improved movement and lowered risk of injury. I use a well-rounded treatment approach, combining chiropractic adjustments, with Active Release Technique (ART), IASTM, exercise, and other tools including cupping, cold laser therapy, orthotics, and massage. I have worked with patients ranging from CFL football players, gold medal Olympians, and other world class athletes to office workers and children.
My first exposure to chiropractic care was at age 24 after a snowboarding accident resulted in two compression fractures in my spine. The relief I found from treatment allowed me to avoid surgery, avoid opioid medications, and return to my active lifestyle at full capacity within just a few months. This experience ignited my passion for chiropractic and gave me my first experience in understanding the unique abilities of this profession as well as the challenges that patients can have with recovery and rehabilitation.
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the many restaurants and coffee shops that Vancouver has to offer and staying active by running, cycling, swimming, weightlifting, indoor rock climbing, and learning to golf.
