While completing his Bachelors of Kinesiology at UBC, Dr. Matthew Ward was active in collegiate golf, varsity track and field, the 2014 and 2015 Crossfit regionals competitions, as well as working as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist in many different settings from the steep mountains of BC as a Rappel Forest Firefighter to a gym with many different populations including professional athletes and weekend warriors.
Dr. Ward completed his Doctorate in Chiropractic at the University of Western States in Portland. He is anything but your ordinary run-of-the-mill chiropractor. After some major injuries, he was searching for what seemed like a missing link to get him back to top form and found that it was a combined approach from many different ideologies that made the biggest impact. It was this experience that inspired him to take over 30 continuing education courses during chiropractic school. It was Dr. Ward’s goal to put as many tools in the toolbox as possible so no matter who he encounters, that his patients gets the best care possible to get them pain free and moving optimally. A few of his trainings include: Mackenzie, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, Mulligan, FMS, SFMA, IASTM, and Blood Flow Restriction.
Dr. Ward’s passion for golf led him to receive certification by the Titleist Performance Institute, which has enhanced his work with multiple country clubs, golf pros, professional golfers and many regular golfers with general goals such as breaking 90 and finding some consistency.
Each of you as patients and athletes require a different approach regardless of if you want to get out of pain, improve your swing, improve overall performance, or improve day to day tasks such as carrying your groceries or putting your socks on while standing. Your goals are the most important thing and Dr. Matt will design an individual plan to achieve them.
