Dr Richard McIlmoyle
Dr Richard McIlmoyle graduated in 1994 from McMaster University with a degree in Biochemistry and graduated cum laude (with honour) with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College in 1999. He is currently pursuing a Certificate in Pain management from the University of Alberta to further his goal of teaching others how to move beyond the suffering of chronic/persistent pain. He enjoys running, cycling and spending time with his wife and 2 boys all over Victoria and Vancouver Island.
He utilizes the most current science regarding pain and biomechanics to guide his treatment, using multiple manual therapies to promote changes with his patients. Dr McIlmoyle enjoys working with all ages and abilities. Staying active is a key component to overall health and by maintaining a robust neuromusculoskeletal system, individuals can overcome many of their problems.. Understanding that our body is a robust and adaptable system helps the elite athlete to perform at their best and exercisers to enjoy daily activities.
Treating pain has become one of his areas of focus, due to it’s debilitating effects on our population and the poor understanding that most practitioners have of the biopsychosocial framework of pain. It is currently the framework that has the best supporting evidence and has the opportunity to gain the best results.
