Chiropractic and Sports Rehab

A chiropractic visit with Dr Jeff Almon, Dr Melissa Tancredi or Dr Brandon Cross consists of the following elements: thorough full-body assessment, diagnostic, treatment using various soft tissue techniques, and recommended rehab exercises. Our goal is to help you fix your concerns as fast as possible, and get you back to doing what you love, pain-free.

All of MVMTLAB's practitioners are or were high-level competitive. Both Dr Almon and Dr Tancredi were professional athletes in their previous career. Dr Almon played in the CFL; Dr Tancredi is a 3x Olympian soccer player and holds two bronze medals for Canada; Dr Cross played NCAA Hockey.

As such, they understand the mental side of sports performance and its link to body mechanics like no other chiropractors in the lower mainland. They specialize in movement pattern analysis and dynamic neuromuscular stability.

Pilates

Pilates is the art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout (not a therapy) when properly manifested. If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance.

Osteopathy

Adrian, our Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, believes that the body is a unit and has an innate ability to heal itself.

In his treatments, he seeks out what may be impeding this natural ability through a mixture of reactive muscle testing, static joint play, range of motion and movement assessment. Once the cause of the issue has been identified, Adrian utilizes techniques ranging from gentle osteopathic modalities to trigger points, to reduce pain. He then calls on his athletic performance background to give his patients the tools needed to take control of their treatment plan.

Adrian wants your treatment to be efficient and effective, helping you to quickly get on your way to triumph over any injury and return to living an awesome life.

The following are the insurance companies that can offer coverage of Adrian's treatments through his membership with the National Manual Osteopathic Society (NMOS):

Alberta Blue Cross
Empire Life
Great-West Life
Green Shield Canada
Manulife Financial
Sun Life
Desjardins Insurance

Wellness Coaching

Wellness Coaching is not Counselling, nor is it advising or fixing. Wellness Coaching assists you to design your future rather than going too deep into your past. We go into what is affecting you today and making changes from there. Coaching provides support, powerful questioning, accountability, necessary tools and a clear path to create positive change. It helps you identify specific goals, how to achieve them, and how to overcome obstacles that you may encounter. Wellness Coaching helps you uncover your core beliefs in effort to understand your decisions, behaviours and actions and make any necessary adjustments to promote expansion and growth. Not only will coaching help you navigate through your limiting core beliefs that no longer serve you, but it will also hold you accountable for achieving the life they desire. This process is very powerful and life changing!
