Bridging Chiropractic and Healthy Living

I grew up in a family that was all about natural health care and the importance of taking care of yourself. It’s amazing that if you take care of your body, your body will take care of you.”

Chiropractor Okotoks Dr. Chris YavisDr. Chris has always had an interest in how a healthy diet and exercise play a part in maintaining a healthy life. He found that chiropractic fit well into the same scope.

“If people take care of themselves, they don’t need to rely as much on external factors like drugs and surgery.”

The first time he went to a chiropractor, he was in pain, unsure of what to expect. After his initial adjustment, Dr. Chris felt better immediately. He continued to receive chiropractic care and noticed that not only his pain went away, but how much better he felt all around.

After experiencing these benefits and realizing chiropractic align with his beliefs, he decided to enter the chiropractic profession.
