Ben Stebbins has earned his Doctor of Chiropractic and Master's of Science degree in Sports Medicine, with the ambition of helping people to get out (and stay out!) of pain. He aspires to make his patients stronger and more resilient so they can get back to the activities they love.
He is not your traditional Chiropractor, he is one of those "New Age Chiropractors" that his clinical resident group was so appreciatively deemed by one of their happy patients. He respects the history and roots of his profession, but truly believes that Movement is Medicine, and that no patient is the same. So, they should not all receive the same “cookie cutter” approach to treatment. He uses the skills he has mastered in school, combined with extensive seminars and continuing education in rehabilitation, movement mastery and sports performance to individualize each patients’ path to improved health. Ben has been involved in the sporting world his entire life, focusing on lacrosse for the majority of his career. After figuring out he wasn’t any good anymore and fighting with injuries and pain, he wanted to be able to help other athletes, weekend warriors, and anyone else who wanted to avoid or recover from injury. His obsession with strength, health, and human performance became his new career path.
While working with the Canadian Forces his skills and enthusiasm for the profession grew; he developed a greater appreciation for the necessity of quality rehabilitation and functional assessment. These experiences were key in inspiring an evolution in Ben's Chiropractic philosophy; and led him towards a more holistic and thorough approach.
Born and raised in Victoria, he has come home to provide his services to anyone looking to not only get out of pain, but also to increase their ability to do the activities they love. Whether it is picking up your grandchild or preparing for your upcoming season, it’s Ben's goal to combine his extensive education and clinical background to maximize the goals of everyone he serves. In his spare time, Ben likes to engage in a number of extra-curricular activities and volunteer work such as offering his services at various sporting events, acting as the Vice President of the UWS Rehab 2 Performance Club, and attending various educational seminars on anything from rehabilitation to pain science to athletic development, and beyond.
