Dr. David Lee
I was born in Korea, and I immigrated to Canada with my family when I was 11 years old. While doing my pre-med studies, I had an opportunity to observe Chiropractic doctors in practice. It changed my view of healthcare, moving from sick care, into holistic and preventive health care. I wanted to change the quality of the life for my patients.
Upon graduating from University of Calgary with a Bachelor’s degree in Human physiology and exercise, I entered Palmer College of Chiropractic, where I obtained my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. While in Chiropractic College, I have taken extensive post-graduate training, which includes:
• 200+ hours of training in Gonstead technique
• 200+ hours in Functional clinical rehabilitation, including Selective Functional Movement Assessment ® (SFMA), Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization ® (DNS) and Shirley Sahrmann
• 100+ hours in Soft tissue techniques, including Active Release Technique ® (ART) and Instrument assisted soft tissue techniques.
I believe in correcting spinal joint misalignments to restore normal function of nervous system and to restore normal joint movement. I utilize Active Release Technique to correct muscle imbalance in order to facilitate the healing process. Lastly, individualized functional rehabilitation is used to retrain proper movement pattern to achieve ideal movement in everyday life and in high level sports.
I aspire to work with all ages, gender and health, to restore their health so that they may live their life to the fullest. I also inspire to work with athletes to increase their potential and level of play.
Read what our patients have to say:
“I’ve had lower back problems for about 15 years and for 8 of those years I could not run. I visited a chiropractor about 5 years ago on a whim because nothing else worked. Sure enough, it worked. I try to stay athletic and I swim, bike and run and avoid the weights due to possible injury again. Create Wellness Center is the third chiropractor I’ve used over the years and Dr. David Lee was good because he didn’t just put you on the bench and start crackin’ away. He interviewed me and sized up my posture and apparent needs. In addition, I got massage treatment which was really effective. Good results…
…Dr. Lee didn’t just dive in and start adjusting the usual lower, middle and upper spinal regions. We talked for about 30 minutes to determine my needs and he asked a lot of question. Because I’ve had back problems for over a decade I wasn’t a real bad case when I walked in the door and I pretty much knew what to expect. Instead of adjustments right away he ran a battery of resistance tests to see where my body was compensating for weak muscles. From these tests he prescribed core strengthening exercises. I did them as directed for the next week and I feel more “solid’ in my spinal area than I have in many years.”
