Dr. Avtar Jassal
Dr. Avtar Jassal is a Vancouver chiropractor who was born and raised in the northern Manitoba town of Thompson. At the age of 18 years Dr. Jassal moved to Winnipeg and began his pre-chiropractic education at the University of Manitoba. After he completed three years of study, he was accepted to the Doctor of Chiropractic program at the prestigious Life University in Marietta, GA. He completed three years of studies there before finishing his final year at Life Chiropractic College West, just outside of San Francisco. Dr. Jassal graduated Cum Laude (Honours), near the top of his class, from the Doctor of Chiropractic program in 2003.
Upon graduation, Dr. Jassal moved back to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he practiced for three years. For the first year and a half, he had the opportunity to do relief work that permitted him to work in a number of clinics. The experience he rendered in the varying clinics allowed him to master many different adjusting techniques. The second year and a half he built a thriving wellness practice as an associate doctor at one of the busiest and most successful clinics in the province. Dr. Jassal married his wife Michelina in January 2006, and a year later they moved to Vancouver. As a Vancouver chiropractor, he immediately opened up a family wellness-based practice on West Broadway that has been growing by leaps and bounds.
Dr. Jassal regularly attends post-graduate training in the science and philosophy of chiropractic and advanced techniques to provide better service to his practice members; he is therefore away from time to time to attend continuing education. He is also a director for the College of Chiropractors of BC, the regulatory body established by the provincial government for the registration and regulation for chiropractic doctors in BC. Dr. Jassal is also a member of the International Chiropractic Association, and a very proud member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
Dr. Jassal uses a chiropractic technique called Torque Release Technique (TRT), which employs an instrument to deliver adjustments. As with all chiropractic techniques, effectiveness varies from patient to patient. Dr. Jassal checks many children and expecting mothers as well as families at the clinic. As a Vancouver chiropractor, he is committed to enhancing the health and vitality of all his practice members and the community.
Dr. Jassal is very active in community fundraising for the Vancouver Food Bank and enjoys activities such as reading, yoga and snowboarding. He also regularly gives talks in the community on a wide variety of health issues.
