"Collaboration with my patients and other therapists is a great part of my job"
Dr. Ben Matheson
Background and Treatment Approach
I grew up in a Saskatchewan playing, watching, and constantly talking about almost all sports. As a member of my university track and field team, I combined a love of sports with my pursuit of a Kinesiology degree from the University of Regina, in a quest to better understand how exercise and physical activity interact with injury, pain and health. I then went on to receive my Doctorate of Chiropractic form the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Since pursuing my career as a chiropractor, I have enjoyed working in many different clinical settings in Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Ontario.
My approach to treatment includes a combination of hands on therapy, exercise and advice. This includes manipulation/mobilization, soft tissue treatment, Graston technique, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, exercise, education, and referral to optimize results for patients.
With each condition, I believe that a thorough assessment is key. Decisions for care are always made in a cooperative fashion (patient-focused approach) to ensure that you are presented with the best conservative options for care. I have worked alongside different types of medical practitioners and I enjoy spending a great deal of time researching best practices for treating and assessing painful conditions.
