Chiropractor

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.

Chiropractor Victoria BC Jerry Lam About Us Page

Chiropractor

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.

Chiropractic Victoria BC Jake Farness About Us Page

Wellness Massage

Jake Farness

Jake recently graduated from the Camosun College RMT program in August 2022 and is currently waiting to become registered with the College of Massage Therapists of BC. He is offering wellness massage until he becomes a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).

Wellness massage provides relaxation, increases body awareness and helps to create balance with the objectives of promoting health and wellness. This type of treatment is utilized to counteract the pressures of daily life that tend to wear down both the body and mind.

Jake doesn’t conform to the “one size fits all” approach of massage. He is dedicated to creating and tailoring a treatment that is specific to his patients needs and is focused on connecting the mind and body. Jake has always had a passion for helping and healing people, and through massage he is able to achieve that passion. Through Jake’s time at Camosun, he has grown an interest in massaging all areas of the body, but he specifically likes working with the neck, back, and shoulders. So much so that Jake did extensive research regarding the topic of spinal cord injuries for his capstone project in school.

Jake does his massages with various techniques, such as deep tissue work, Swedish massage, myofascial release, trigger point release and many more techniques. His calm, friendly and non-judgmental persona creates a warm and positive environment for his patients. He enjoys working with people from all walks of life and uses a compassionate and thoughtful approach in order to create the best experience for his patients.

Outside of the workplace, you can find Jake riding his motorcycle on twisty roads or going for cruises to new and exciting areas. Jake also loves the aquatic life, such as paddle boarding and swimming. Along with being active and healthy, Jake loves to spend quality time with his partner catching up over dinner or enjoying their favorite show together.
