I started receiving Chiropractic care because of neck problems and headaches after I suffered a severe shoulder injury from electrocution. I had been experiencing constant pain for about six months, couldn’t sleep and painkillers weren’t working. My neck had pulled out of alignment and actually changed the shape of my skull from constant strain on my neck. I was having no success with previous treatments using traditional chiropractors. Since seeing Dr. Dave my neck is aligned and my headaches have stopped. My headaches are now manageable and quickly subside and when a headache does return all it takes is one treatment and I’m all good again. Dave is very personable and pleasant to visit. –Shon

I had been seeing a chiropractor since 2006 from a car accident once a week and I was not getting any better. I felt terrible, like something was seriously wrong with me but was unable to express exactly what it was. I have had many chiropractic treatments with many chiropractors regularly with no lasting results. I started seeing Dr. Dave in October 2015 and generally feel much better, have more energy and less pain.  I now only come every 4-6 weeks and have had so much improvement. -Thelma

I had been experiencing back and neck pain from the age of 16. It was very painful and made me withdraw from the gym, swimming and sports. I saw Dr. David when I was 16 and he worked on my back and I felt no pain after. I came back to see him now that I’m 25 and he fixed my back again. I’m pain free, less tension on my head, neck and back and able to do the things I love. Some of the side benefits I have a received are better mood and posture. I love coming to see Dr. David, he has a lot of knowledge and very welcoming staff. -Shaheena

Dear Dr. Dave,

Thank you for taking the time to see my daughter last August when we were visiting friends in the Vancouver area. We were recommended to you by a friend regarding my 11 year old daughter’s stomach problems.

My daughter has had stomach and digestive issues since she was born.  We had been to visit her pediatrician countless times, made visits to two different GPs and were in the children’s hospital twice to see a specialist over the past 9 years.  She has been waking up in the middle of the night for years complaining of stomach cramps and vomiting.  In the worst cases she would be awake 4 to 5 nights a week.  She would also miss meals and often be lethargic because of lack of sleep and nutrition.  None of the medical doctors we saw could help us.  The explanation most often given to us was “some kids just throw up more often to others”.  She was placed on a number of different dietary restrictions, none of which seemed to help.

It only took you about 5 minutes to let me know she most probably had a hiatal hernia.  You performed a simple massage like motion and showed me how to do this if her stomach was upset again. After her visit with you she felt instantly better.  For the first time in years she was not sick at night for almost two weeks.  She was sleeping well and eating all her meals.  She had an upset stomach again about 10 days later and I performed the massaging motion you showed me.  Her upset stomach and nausea was better in about 10 minutes.  Since that night, over the past year I have had to do this two more times.  My daughter has not woken up sick in over 7 months.

I can’t stress enough how much this helped my daughter, not to mention my own sleep patterns.  She has very few dietary restrictions and has no need for medication.  She is healthy, happy and energetic.  I have noticed a great deal of difference in her participation at school and in sports.

A few months after your diagnosis I went to her pediatrician for her regular check up.  I explained to him what happened and he said he was happy that she was doing so much better.  When I asked him why he had not examined her abdomen as you did, or thought of a hiatal hernia his answer was “It never crossed my mind”.

Your professional attention, your concern and your knowledge has changed my daughters life.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
