Caring, Dedicated, Patient-Centered.
Dr. Félix Lascelles-Palys graduated from Simon Fraser University with a B.Sc. in Kinesiology. He then received his Doctor of Chiropractic and Masters in Sports Medicine from University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Lascelles-Palys is certified in Active Release Techniques (ART) and Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR).
Having been an athlete in several sports throughout his life, a long list of injuries drew Dr. Lascelles-Palys towards the field of rehabilitation and sports sciences. He has worked as a trainer for professional lacrosse, completed multiple sports medicine placements with various high school teams, and interned for 6 months in Washington under the supervision of the Seattle Seahawks team chiropractor.
Dr. Lascelles-Palys has developed an interest and focus on the mechanisms of injury and subsequent rehabilitation involving shoulders and elbows of throwing athletes; building strength and mobility across a variety of sports and; in the unique and complex patient, their variability and its effect on their movements and everyday life.
Dr. Lascelles-Palys sees treatment not only as a way to alleviate pain or dysfunction, but as an opportunity for education, and working out the root cause of an injury to avoid a future re-aggravation. He is a very strong advocate for evidence-based practice, and ensures that his treatment style is constantly reflecting the newest research in patient-centred care.
