Brad Gage D.C.
Dr. Gage is Western Canada's only Advanced-Certified doctor in the "Chiropractic BioPhysics" (CBP) technique, an evidence-based spinal rehab system. CBP treatment includes condition and posturally specific exercise, adjustments, and multi-direction traction therapy. The CBP method can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions including abnormal posture, spinal deformities such as scoliosis and kyphosis, as well as pain.
He also utilizes Spinal Decompression Therapy for the treatment of disc problems and to reduce symptoms that radiate into the arms or legs.
All of the patients at the BetterBack clinic are encouraged to learn home-care exercises that help people "Get Better, Faster"!
Dr. Gage has experience in and utilizes other adjusting techniques to complement the more structurally-based CBP Technique to best match your individual needs, preferences, and goals, including several different low-force instrument-based techniques.
Dr. Gage's non-work interests include riding his motorcycle, fitness and exercise, woodworking, and a variety of outdoor activities such as camping, kayaking, hiking, and sport shooting. He is also an avid audio-video enthusiast! He has been married to his lovely wife Debbie for over 29 years and is the proud father of three active healthy young men.
Jerry Lam D.C.
Dr. Jerry Lam utilizes manual and low force chiropractic adjusting techniques because he believes everyone's body is unique and there is no 'one size fits all' approach to your body. Dr. Lam focuses on spinal traction and specific exercises alongside the adjustment to correct abnormal spinal curvatures and reduce pain, enhance body function and health.
Dr. Lam's first experience with chiropractic was through his recovery from sciatica after years of wear and tear as an athlete in combat sports. At first, he thought it would go away on its own after a couple of days like it had many times before. He tried heat, ice, stretching and massage, however nothing he tried decreased the pain and disability.
He was referred to a chiropractor in town who also practices Judo. After a series of chiropractic adjustments and rehabilitation, they finally reduced for the first time in a long time. Not only was he able to fully return to the sport he loved, but his performance was better than ever! His personal success with chiropractic care led him to become a chiropractor himself so that could serve his community with the same life-changing chiropractic care that he himself had received.
Dr. Lam is one of the few chiropractors in Victoria who is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English and is also licensed to practice chiropractic in Hong Kong where he was born. He completed his Doctor of Chiropractic with Summa Cum Laude at Life Chiropractic College West in California, USA.
Dr. Lam's recreational interests include Judo, fitness, table tennis, and basketball. He was invited to train with the Hong Kong Judo Team when he was 16, and in 2015 he achieved his black belt and then coached at the South China Athletic Association in Hong Kong. His hard work ethic in sports has now translated to working hard to provide excellent care to his new community in Victoria. Dr. Lam has a strong passion for helping others and is honored to be serving the people of Victoria at The BetterBack Clinic / Cedar Hill Sports Therapy.
Bradley Kennedy D.C.
Dr. Bradley's approach to care with patients and families is highly individualized since every person has unique strengths, beliefs, and preferences. He collaborates with a network of integrative health providers.
Taking an integrated, holistic approach to health care, believing that you need to be treated as a whole person. Not just a symptom or part. Using a variety of hands-on techniques, stretches, and exercises to help you improve your function and feel better.
I just wish I had known then what I know now. I experienced a decade of unnecessary chronic pain, from an injury that happened slowly over time, doing my favorite activity: competitive swimming.
This ultimately guided my first career as a Registered Massage Therapist. While working in a NUCCA chiropractic clinic, one of the doctors offered to assess my chronic shoulder injury. At first, I was skeptical, but when he explained the mechanics of this technique, it made perfect sense. I had regular NUCCA adjustments, and within 6 weeks, I was pain-free. Moreover, I was so inspired and convinced from this personal experience, that I decided to pursue NUCCA chiropractic as my career. Being a curious and stubborn individual I haven't stopped learning and continue to add new techniques and experiences to my practice
