Dr. Jamie Hennessy, founder of Hennessy Chiropractic, carries an impressive resume. He got his doctorate in chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.

What we liked best about Dr. Hennessy is that he has a patient-oriented approach where he encourages his patients to be active in their own health.

To be precise, Dr. Hennessy’s chiropractic services are highly personalized, like custom orthotics and gait analysis, optimizing sports performance, and providing rehabilitation for injuries.

It’s also good that this is a full-service chiropractic clinic, as he’s able to treat all ages. Dr. Hennessy also has specific services for sports performance and injuries, which is good to know.

While you are dealing with just one chiropractor here, we love that they have an online booking system to make it easier for patients to reach out.

Hennessy Chiropractic also directs bills for 45 extended healthcare providers, including TELUS Health, Canada Life, and  ICBC,, among others. This makes it convenient for patients to receive the care they need without hassle.

  • Online booking system
  • Specific services for sports performance and injuries

OPERATING HOURSMonday to Wednesday: 9am to 6pm

Thursday: 9am to 8pm

Friday: 9am to 6pm

Saturday: 8am to 2pm

For two decades, Dr. Chan has treated numerous patients from all over the world. He’s a bit of a traveler himself, as he grew up in Vancouver, pursued his doctorate in Portland, and now has his own clinic on Commercial Drive.

Now, what you need to know about Dr. Chan is that he loves science, and he’s also passionate about sports. That’s what’s driven him to chiropractic care.

Now, as for his approach, Dr. Chan focuses on providing evidence-based care, which means you’ll often see him conducting treatments that are backed by science.

He, among other chiropractors in this clinic, is trained to use various manual therapy techniques like soft tissue mobilization, joint manipulation, and exercise prescription to help his patients recover from injuries and improve their overall well-being.

We do worry about their limited extended healthcare provider affiliations, as they only have eight on their roster. We do, however, like that they provide treatment for ICBC or Worksafe patients.

We also found it both interesting and impressive that if patients don’t start receiving relief within the first 5 visits, they will stop, reassess, and evaluate if a referral to another treatment option is better for them.

We found that to be incredibly thorough and considerate, making Dr. Chan one of the best chiropractors in Vancouver.

Pros

  • Provides evidence-based care
  • Reassesses patients after five visits
  • Works with ICBC or Worksafe patients

Cons

  • Limited extended healthcare provider affiliations

Expert at pinpointing source of pain

“Dr. Chan quickly identified that my left hip was out of alignment. With his expertise, he made some adjustments, and the relief was almost immediate…”

Dr. Brian Lanoue, a chiropractor that was struck by Vancouver’s allure after a one-week trip to Whistler that he decided to move to the city. Dr. Lanoue’s deal is that he’s always keen to learn.

Why, after finishing his at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, he still pursues post-graduate courses in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care. 

He’s also a member of a number of chiropractic organizations like the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Canadian National Alliance for Chiropractic and the Chiropractic Board of BC.

Now, on to his services. Apart from the usual things like spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy, this clinic also provides bio-structural exams for newborns and children, which we think makes them the ideal choice for families.

We also loved that all their chiropractors are trained at applying the Life By Design Method™, which means they address the root cause of health issues rather than just treating symptoms. 

We believe that this holistic approach ensures that patients receive comprehensive care for long-term wellness, making Dr. Lanoue one of the best chiropractors in Vancouver.

OPERATING HOURSTuesday: 10am to 6pm

As someone who has experienced chronic headaches and lower back pain herself, Dr. Marcia Halajeski’s path to chiropractic was inspired after getting real results from her chiropractor.

She got her doctorate from the University of Western States in Portland in 2016 and has practiced chiropractic ever since, focusing on function and wellness.

She’s also a Certified ART (Active Release Technique) provider and Mackenzie Protocol for Low Back.

We absolutely appreciate that she offers a free 15-minute consultation! We thought this compensated for the absence of an online booking system in her clinic.

Apart from that, Dr. Halajeski also has a specific service for office workers: ergonomic reviews. As working humans ourselves, we found this service to be very helpful.

She can review your workspace and make recommendations to improve ergonomics, ultimately reducing the risk of musculoskeletal issues.

All in all, we highly recommend Dr. Halajeski for her expertise in ART and Mackenzie Protocol, as well as her thoughtful consideration of offering free consultations and ergonomic reviews for office workers.
