Chiropractic and Related Services for Well-Being

In Calgary, chiropractic care is partially funded by Alberta's provincial health plan. It is also covered extensively by third party payers such as private health insurers, Veteran's Affairs and various bodies that concern themselves with rehabilitation such as the automobile insurance industry and workers' compensation boards. If you work for the federal public services or a large corporation, or if your company offers any kind of supplemental health benefits plan, you likely have coverage for chiropractic services. We'll be happy to help you decipher what your benefits package offers.   Dr. Les Davidson has been practicing chiropractic care in Calgary since 1982, when he first opened his clinic. Besides chiropractic services, he also offers complementary modalities such as acupuncture and massage that serve to help you achieve your optimal health potential. He has served the community through his work as liaison to the Workers' Compensation Board and his involvement with the minor injury program of the Alberta motor vehicle insurance industry, and through his ongoing workshops and presentations to community groups. He enjoys a very active lifestlye that includes cycling, skiing and wakeboarding, and wants his patients to experience their lives as fully as he is able to do.  

Our mission is to help our patients achieve their optimal health, beginning with the understanding that health is not the absence of symptoms, discomforts or complaints, but a state of true well-being. We aim to help our patients lead healthy active lives through the natural, drug-free approach of chiropractic care including clinical excellence as well as patient education.

We believe there is a role for chiropractic care in everyone's health.

Our philosophy is that health is achieved from the inside out, by removing barriers to its expression, rather than from the outside in, by prescribing medications and surgeries. Granted there are individual circumstances where a surgical consultation or other intervention may be necessary to a person's optimal health, and we will always treat you as the individual you are, with respect, courtesy and integrity.

Our goal is to provide non-surgical, drug-free chiropractic treatment alongside complementary therapies such as massage, nutritional counselling, acupuncture, decompression and more to help you achieve your best health.

A chiropractic adjustment, also referred to as manipulation, is part of the holistic approach to health that we as chiropractors favour. Health is not the absense of illness, but a condition of wholeness. Your body is a complex organism that regulates itself and is capable of healing itself, under the right circumstances such as when nerve interference is identified and removed and proper diet, exercise and stress management is maintained. Adjustment is a low-risk, non-invasive and drug-free therapy for resolving musculoskeletal conditions including pain in your neck, back or head.  Dr. Davidson is a Fellow of the College of Chiropractic Orthopaedic Specialists (Canada), a designation that honours his continued education beyond the initial Doctor of Chiropractic at the post graduate level in chiropractic orthopaedics (a recognized specialty that deals with neuromusculoskeletal diseases, injuries, and syndromes). He has also furthered his education in the broader field of chiropractic to expand his expertise as it relates to pediatric care and occupational health.

Dr. Davidson believes in making a contribution to the profession and to the broader community by sharing his knowledge through lectures to his peers in the medical field as well as workshops for those whose lives and careers can benefit from a better understanding of chiropractic, such as Workers' Compensation groups, community groups, businesses and schools.

He also believes in surrounding himself with other professionals who are as committed as he is to the wellbeing of his patients. The members of Dr. Davidson's staff team are ready and eager to help you attain your optimal health potential by living the chiropractic lifestyle.

The profession of chiropractic is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system as they relate to the function of the nervous system and one's overall health and well-being. Just as your skull protects your brain, the bones in your spine protect your spinal cord and nerves, which directly impact your entire nervous system as well as your tissues and organs. Altered spinal mechanics can compromise your body's proper function and its ability to regulate and heal itself, as it was designed to do.

A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, controlled, and directed pressure applied to a specific joint. It has the effect of removing irritation to the nervous sytem, improving range of motion, reducing pain and swelling and increasing circulation, among other health benefits.

Not convinced a chiropractor can help with your chronic condition? There are many diseases, syndromes, conditions and so on that cannot be cured by any means or method, including chiropractic. It is not a panacea. Your pain and discomfort can, however, be mitigated, relieved, lessened, made less frequent and/or less severe. Whatever way you wish to express it, the change will contribute to your improved quality of life. Our firsthand experience in this clinic suggests that recurring pain, whether it is expressed in your neck, your back, or through headaches, can be treated palliatively for a better long term outcome including reduced severity and fewer recurrences of the pain.  The measures performed by a chiropractor such as spinal adjustments, soft tissue work and functional exercise prescription are designed to resolve - permanently - the underlying cause of your illness or problem. The dual objective is to eliminate the unpleasant symptoms you are experiencing and to correct the circumstances that created or contributed to the condition in the first place. We will use specific quantifiable markers to document and evaluate your progress objectively, which may include range of motion measures, functional tests and surveys. Please visit our downtown clinic or call us at (403) 284-4743 to learn more about our total person approach to your health. We look forward to helping you add more life to your years.
