Debbie Wong has been in practice since 1997 after completing her doctorate
from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. She was awarded a Bachelor
of Science Degree in Microbiology with a minor in Psychology by the
University of Calgary.
Dr. Wong’s specialties include treating low back and neck pain, headaches,
arthritis, sciatic problems, chronic foot disorders and other nerve and
joint-related issues. She believes in treating patients as whole beings and
in spending time
with patients during every visit to assist
them in achieving their overall health goals. Dr. Wong’s treatments include
soft tissue therapy followed by
gentle spine adjustments and
extremity adjustments if needed. She will often incorporate stretching and
strengthening exercises, ergonomics and nutrition counseling into patients’
treatment protocols. Referrals for
acupuncture are also regular components of Dr.
Wong’s treatment regimens, as these therapies will help balance out the
patient’s musculoskeletal system and assist in a speedier recovery. Her
primary goal is to enhance the quality of life of all patients, of all ages
and all health conditions.
Dr. Wong incorporates state of the art
Gait Scan technology to analyze a patient’s stance and
walking motion. This helps her to detect pressure points and timing
abnormalities in an individual’s static and dynamic gait cycle. Correcting
these issues will help to alleviate and eliminate problems higher up in the
kinetic chain, such as low back pain and headaches.
Dr. Wong is one of the few
Certified Animal Chiropractors in Calgary. Her pet clientele
consists mainly of dogs and cats with spinal and joint disorders. Animal
Chiropractic is still a relatively new field in Calgary, so feel free to
contact Dr. Wong if you have any questions regarding your pet.
