Dr. Brad Gage, DC is the owner of the BetterBack clinic. He has worked hard to build a committed and talented team who put the patient's needs first!
Education: The University of Victoria (B.A., 1992), Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto (Doctor of Chiropractic, 2002).
Practice: Dr. Gage's practice is really two separate but overlapping practices - he maintains a Family Wellness/Rehabilitative practice several days per week in addition to separate days reserved for the treatment of more complex spinal issues such as SCOLIOSIS and KYPHOSIS (increased curvature or excessive rounding of the mid-back) using custom-made 3D braces as well as scoliosis-specific exercises and traction.
Dr. Gage is Western Canada's only Advanced-Certified doctor in the "Chiropractic Bio Physics" (CBP) technique, He utilizes specific traction-based therapies such as Spinal Decompression Therapy, as well as other traction equipment that can be used for more complex spinal problems. All of the patients at the BetterBack clinic are encouraged to learn home-care exercises that help people "Get Better, Faster"!
Dr. Gage utilizes various other adjusting techniques to complement the more structurally-based CBP Technique to best match your individual needs, including neurologically based techniques called "Torque Release Technique" ("TRT" for short) and Mastering Chiropractic with Certainty ("MC2" for short). These techniques utilizes an adjusting instrument called an "Integrator" which is designed to stimulate specific spinal reflexes and can treat the spine without the use of manipulation. Dr. Gage also has a clinical interest in THE SKULL, assessing and treating problems with the head using the Cranial Adjusting Turner Style (CATS) technique.
Dr. Gage's non-work interests include riding his motorcycle, fitness and exercise, a variety of outdoor activities with his family (including kayaking, hiking, and sport shooting), wood-working, and he is an audio-video nut! He has been married to his lovely wife Debbie for over 25 years and is the proud father of three active healthy young men.
