Dr. Edward Sands has been a chiropractor for 40 years, beginning his career in south Calgary, then relocating to Okotoks.
His approach to chiropractic is a very biomechanical one, with a focus on the integration of structure and biomechanics and the impact on the neurological system and the ultimate health of the individual. From the beginning of his career, Dr. Sands has had a multidisciplinary approach, recognizing that a holistic pathway to health was the best route. He had massage therapists working in his practice from the very early days and accepted referrals from (and referred back to) several medical doctors in his community. He also worked with a network of physiotherapists, acupuncturists, naturopaths and recognizes the foundational importance of nutrition in human health.
Dr. Edward Sands has training and experience in spinal manipulative therapy, Activator Methods, Active Release Therapy, Kinesio taping, orthotics and other modalities. His practice includes infants and children as well as seniors. He is certified by the Workers’ Compensation Board of Alberta and is experienced in managing patients injured in motor vehicle collisions.
