Dr Richard McIlmoyle, BSc, DC, PgCPain
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 has recently completed a Certificate in Pain management from the University of Alberta to further his goal of helping others to move beyond the suffering of chronic/persistent pain. He enjoys running, and cycling (both road and mountain) throughout Victoria and Vancouver Island as well as spending time with his 2 boys.
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. His goal is to maintain or return you to activities that you enjoy, as it is the best supported intervention when it comes to relieving pain (whether that be recent injury or persisting pain.) 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 individuals experiencing persistent 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 creates the opportunity to help regain your ability to participate in the things that matter to you.
