Dr. Amy Wiggins Chiropractor


Iprofile-pics-mhp_0002_Amy grew up on the North Shore playing sports and enjoying the outdoors. I played Metro level soccer throughout high school and went on to play for both the Capilano Blues and North Vancouver premiere soccer teams while studying in University. Growing up as a “chiropractic kid” I benefited from regular chiropractic care which kept me injury and pain-free during my time spent playing sports.

In 2009 I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a bachelor of Kinesiology and a major in exercise science. My time spent studying the human body; health and nutrition while playing sports furthered my desire to enter a health care profession where I could integrate manual therapies, rehabilitation and nutrition. I decided to continue my education at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where I obtained my Doctor of Chiropractic degree and graduated with clinical honours distinction.

I offer a holistic, hands-on approach to health care and utilize various treatment modalities including: manipulation, mobilization, ART, vibration therapy and muscle stimulation to help alleviate pain and speed injury recovery.

I have taken additional courses in Active Release Techniques (ART), Selective Functional Movement Assessment (sFMA), Functional Release (FR) Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) and Dynamic Neuromuscular stabilization (DNS) through the Prague School of Rehabilitation. I have a special interest in sports-injuries  and rehabilitation and strive to empower and educate my patients to take an active role in their own health and well-being.

In 2017 I completed my 200-hour Hatha Yoga teacher training and include yoga stretches, exercises and breathing techniques for rehabilitation when appropriate. I also offer at home-private yoga therapy sessions upon request. These hour-long sessions will be a fusion of myofascial release and assisted stretching along with strengthening,  yin style yoga postures and meditation. The yoga therapy sessions will be tailored specifically to you and your personal goals – this could mean healing from an injury, improving your personal yoga practice or reaching new athletic goals. Please email dr.amywiggins@gmail.com to learn more about private yoga sessions.
