Our process involves creating a treatment that is truly individualized for you. This means spending extra time during your first visit to find the root cause of what is going on with your body, not just zoning in on the areas of pain.
With finding the areas of dysfunction, truly correcting them means having a plan in place that meets guidelines of scientific evidence, your Chiropractor’s clinical expertise, and your values as a patient. For some, this may mean correcting underlying mobility issues, while for others it may involve a larger focus on stability and rehabilitation - this is where diversity in the treatments can get great individualized results.
The first visit is focused on establishing the proper diagnosis. This means taking the time to determine the patterns of your pain, what’s making it worse, and why it is there in the first place. After a thorough history, we will perform a movement assessment to see how you move as a whole - this allows your Chiropractor to zone in on areas that aren’t moving well and determine if they are contributing to your pain.
Concluding this appointment, a game plan will be developed with you, so we can best help you move forward. This is what separates MYo Lab from the rest; you can expect longer follow-up visits tailored to your needs, not just a quick crack and sending you on your way.
MYo Lab is proud to be authorized to provide care under WCB. If you have been injured at work, our MYo Lab team can provide you with the treatment necessary to get you back to work. For more information, contact our admin staff to see if this applies to you.
Evan is a former collegiate basketball player who decided on a career as a Chiropractor after a better return-to-sport experience with chiropractic care than what traditional rest + anti-inflammatories could offer. He’ll be participating in ‘No-Shave November’ in 2030.
Areas of Passion:
1. Low Back + Hips: Since day 1 on his Chiropractic journey, Evan has seen the firsthand benefit of treating common conditions with a focus on the SI joints (pelvis), and in so doing he has found great success in helping people especially with low back and/or hip pain that has not responded favourably to other treatments.
2. Headaches/Migraines: When Evan first moved to Calgary he experienced the dreaded chinook headaches, which created a drive to help people experiencing such pain get back to doing what they love.
3. Basketball Athletes: As a former Collegiate basketball athlete himself, Evan enjoys utilizing his passion and experience in the sport along with his professional expertise to serve these athletes.

Chantelle is a former recreational dancer with a passion for helping people lead the life they want to live, and believes that when people are moving well, and moving often, they’re unstoppable. She once shaved her head to win an argument, so you know she has the dedication to help you do you.
Areas of Passion:
1. Lower Body: With a background as a child who was prescribed orthotics with little clinical reasoning or follow-up and had to earn her way out of them, Chantelle is passionate about addressing the dysfunctions in your lower extremities that create compensation patterns and pain in the rest of the body.
2. Women’s Health: Chantelle believes that although women’s health includes pregnancy and post-natal care, it goes far beyond that: back pain from bras and the pelvic floor shouldn’t be taboo subjects, and women should be provided with the opportunity to discuss their concerns and feel heard and validated.
3. Artistic Athletes: As a former recreational dancer, Chantelle understands that artistic athletes present a unique challenge, and she loves helping them see how their exceptional mobility needs to be built upon a solid foundation of strength.
