Surrounding construction and road closures

RE: ROAD CONSTRUCTION/CLOSURES Please be advised that there is certain sections of Douglas Road that is under construction and not accessible east of our clinic location at 1160 Douglas Road. The easiest access to Douglas Road is from Boundary Road and Parker Street. You may click on the map below to activate the "to and from" directions tab and place your location in. The map will indicate the areas of road closure and provide the most reasonable route to access our clinic location. Street parking on both sides in front of the clinic is still readily available and free.

For those that have not visited our clinic since January 2018, please be aware of our new address and location change from Halifax street.The new address is #101-1160 Douglas Road, Burnaby, BC V5C 4Z6. You may contact us at 604-299-7199 or use the "Online Booking" button to make your appointment.

Our staff and its practitioners are excited about this new location. After 15 years of residing on Halifax Street, this property will be demolished and re developed by the BOSA group to meet the needs of the surrounding Amazing Brentwood area. Our new location on Douglas Road is ground level with easy, ample, free street parking in front of the building and behind the building. The closest transit is the bus which travels on Gilmore Avenue connecting Gilmore Skytrain Station and Hastings. The most convenient and closest bus stop is at William Street, from which one would walk westward two residential blocks to our clinic on Douglas Road. The closest landmark to our new location is the Steamworks Brewery and Taproom that is located virtually across the street at the intersection of Douglas Road and William Street. Please see the map below.

Getting ready for the holidays!

During the holidays, it is common to get busy and out of routine. We all have to be careful as it's not just those extra few pounds that we have to worry about but also the vulnerability of our tissues and old physical complaints/injuries. Very commonly, a large number of the visits people make to my office are for back and neck pain during this time. They often say, "lately I have been so busy and have had no time" to stop and stretch and apply a cold pack even though they were aware of the pain in the area 'brewing.' I advise we have to make time to react earlier than later to these signs. It can save you time and money and reduce the number of visits to my office or sometimes even resolve it quickly.
