We are all very excited to be returning to our practices this coming week as Chiropractors. I am a full time locum Chiropractor, which is a Chiropractor who takes over for another Chiropractor when they are away from their practice for vacation, injury, pregnancy or illness. With the new guidelines to return to work, if a Chiropractor has any symptoms and needs to self isolate, they will be away from their practice on short notice. I am Licensed in BC and Alberta and I am available to help. I have over 26 years of experience including over 100 week of locum work in over 50 clinics. Please DM me if you have any questions or you need help in your clinic.
