Dr. Jennifer Thomas, DC
Dr. Thomas was initially introduced to chiropractic after a suffering a back injury while teaching in Japan. She credits chiropractic for getting her out of pain and back to work. Despite this early evidence of the benefits of chiropractic, Dr. Thomas did not begin to dream of chiropractic as a career until she suffered a dragon boating injury. Dr. Thomas appreciated the evidenced based, hands on, care that she received from her chiropractor. Realizing this was her life’s ambition, Dr. Thomas began to work towards becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. She is a graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Dr. Thomas credits her training in evidence based care and her previous experience as a high school teacher in helping her successfully develop patient focused treatment plans. Her aim is to help each patient to achieve his or her own health goals.
Dr. Thomas has recently moved to Calgary and is excited to provide care to patients of the Bowness and surrounding areas. Her approach to treatment is one that focuses on each patient’s individual needs. Techniques practiced include Diversified adjusting, myofascial soft-tissue techniques, as well as treatment using laser therapy. She believes that active patient care is an important component in the achievement of health goals, incorporating exercise and lifestyle counselling in treatment.
In her spare time, Dr. Thomas enjoys running and is looking forward to getting involved in Calgary’s paddling and dance communities. Dr. Thomas is also an avid traveller and a history and theatre buff. She is eagerly looking forward to exploring Calgary and making it her home.
