Meet Dr. Oksana Tcherbak!
Dr. Oksana Tcherbak earned her degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. She is a proud millennium graduate of 2000.
Her roots belong to Ukraine, where she was born and raised, and completed her first degree in Engineering of Civil Aviation. In 1992 she experienced a major turning point in her life – the Soviet Union fell apart and as a result, the economic and political situation in her homeland did not promise any future to a new graduate engineer. The opportunity came to immigrate to Canada and she arrived in St. John’s Newfoundland on Canada Day in 1992. While attending a language school for new Canadians she became an active participant of YMCA as a staff member. Oksana obtained her fitness trainer certification and through this was introduced to the chiropractic profession.
A healthy lifestyle based on holisms and wellness was a normal everyday life for her and her family in Ukraine. She grew up with regular physical activities, sports, seasonal and local nutrition without pop drinks and sugary processed foods, they were simply not available. Starting her life in Canada and observing how so many people were making completely wrong life style choices, she decided that chiropractic would allow her to reach out and teach others about simple health and wellness. Inspiration had arrived and the learning journey began.
Dr. Oksana has been practicing wellness chiropractic for 15 years in Saskatchewan and Alberta, helping people of all ages to achieve their optimum health potential. She constantly strives to guide her patients on how to handle their stress, increase their energy, and improve their quality of life.
In her practice she utilizes Manual Chiropractic Adjustment, Activator Method, Soft Tissue Therapy, Active Release Technique, and Exercise and Postural recommendations. Her special interests are Custom Orthotics, TMJ therapy, and Ergonomics. She likes to take an interdisciplinary approach in cooperation with medical doctors for the treatment and diagnosing of patients.
As a female professional, a supportive wife, and a proud mother of three daughters she is aware of the stress we are all facing in today’s society, but she is trying to show that it is possible to maintain a balance, handle the stress, be full of energy and enjoy life. You could spot her jogging with her stroller or engaging in Pilates or Yoga classes. She enjoys cooking, traveling, hiking in the Rockies, and spending time with her family and friends.
By keeping up with balanced lifestyle she believes that she will help her patients to achieve the same. To her, the greatest part of being a chiropractor is seeing people make life changes as they regain their health. She truly believes that life and health come from within and the maintenance of health is far superior to the treatment of disease.
