"..he is an invaluable part of my health and wellness."
 
I have been under the superb care of Dr White for over a year now and he is an invaluable part of my health and wellness. I have seen him for CrossFit related maintenance and more recently, on a regular basis for issues that have come with my pregnancy. His assessments are thoughtful and his treatments effective. He has saved my sanity on multiple occasions by treating symptoms other health practitioners could not. I would and have recommended him to all my friends and family.

"..Dr White was the only one to diagnose and treat it properly."
 
After seeing numerous chiropractors for the same issue, Dr White was the only one to diagnose and treat it properly. I feel much better after seeing him.

"..he treated the problem and provided a strategy for long-term, self-managed maintenance.."
 
When I injured my back I had x-rays taken. Both my family doctor and John White received the x-rays. John not only showed and explained the x-rays in detail (something my doctor did not do), he treated the problem and provided a strategy for long-term, self-managed maintenance through appropriate stretches and exercise.

"..I've gone from using a cane to get around to being 100% mobile again.."

Since I started seeing doctor John I have gone from using a cane to get around to being 100% mobile again from a serious back injury I incurred a couple of years ago in a car accident. Dr. John offered me not only traditional chiropractic care with the back adjustment but ongoing care and attention to the little things like proper stretching, health concerns, and proper posture.

I used to hate going to the chiropractor because of the painful back adjustments but now I look forward to the pain relieving sessions I have with Dr. John.

Thanks Dr. John.

"I would recommend John to anyone looking to improve their well being."
Dr White has been able to treat me for sporting injuries and improve my overall wellness at the same time. He is just as interested at treating the root of the problem and not just symptom relief. I would recommend John to anyone looking to improve their well being.

"..thrilled to have the chance to experience Dr. White's chiropractic services first hand.."

I have a very old rotator cuff shoulder injury that I had totally forgotten about. When I began instructing Nordic Pole Walking, as part of my business, my old injury reared its ugly head. You see, I love to Nordic Pole and I do it with lots of energy and vigor.
 
Before too long, I realized I needed to have my shoulder looked after and was thrilled to have the chance to experience Dr. White’s chiropractic services first hand. I had no idea what the extent of my injury was until Dr. White began using Active Release Technique. Oh my, it almost brought tears to my eyes. Each week Dr. White would send me on my way with me promising to do the rehabilitation exercises he prescribed.

Although I was not as diligent as I could have been, with my rehabilitation exercises, my shoulder has come a long way. I can now happily pole for 3 or 4 sessions per day.

Thank you so much Dr. White.

"Dr. White is by far the best doctor and best chiropractor I have ever been to.."

I began seeing Dr. White in September, 2009, after meeting him at a business meeting.  At that point I had chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and was struggling with performing everyday activities, let alone working. 

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 3 years ago.  I’ve had migraines 3-4x per week since I was 18 years old.  I had squished discs in my back multiple times over a 10 year period.  I had breathing issues due to my ribs dislocating.  I couldn’t use my left arm properly, and had difficulty using my hands.  A neurologist told me I had carpal tunnel syndrome and needed surgery and braces for my hands.  I often didn’t sleep well because of the throbbing pain throughout my body.

I’d seen several medical specialists and all of them had either said:  “Take a prescription for pain and/or sleep”, “Get surgery”, or “Learn to live with being disabled.”  None of the doctors had given me much hope for improvement.  But, I am only 33 years old and had not given up hope.

It is now February, 2010.  I am thrilled to say that Dr. White has helped me immensely.  His approach using active release therapy techniques, assisted stretching, chiropractic adjustments, and prescribing stretches/exercises to do at home has radically improved my level of function.

I now rarely get migraines.  I can use my hands and left arm again.  My back is far stronger and my breathing has improved.  I am now able to exercise in a gym again, and have returned to working in the healthcare field.  I sleep far better because I am not throbbing as much.  My clarity of thought has improved because I am getting better quality of sleep and I am not in as much pain all the time.

Initially Dr. White had to be extremely gentle and treat me conservatively because my pain level was so high.  He was very responsive and understanding regarding my feedback on what my body could handle.  He met me half way and provided excellent education on how to slowly, but progressively, rehabilitate my body.  I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first because I had been to so many other doctors and chiropractors already.  But, he was right!! 

Dr. White is by far the best doctor and best chiropractor I have ever been too.  I feel like he has given me my life back.  I can now enjoy doing many of the things I used to do and return to a profession that I love.  He gave me hope and results, when no other doctor did.  And he has accomplished this without prescriptions and without surgery.   That thrills me!!  Thanks Dr. White!!  You rock!!

"..I noticed a real improvement.."

I hadn't realized that after my last appointment I wouldn't see you again – and have a chance to say thank you!  This was my first experience seeing a chiropractor and I noticed a real improvement, especially in my back.

Best wishes,

Kristi



"..it quickly became apparent how much relief John could provide.."

With a couple of unfortunate injuries recently, it has been invaluable to have Dr. John White as my chiropractor.  When I dislocated my shoulder, he was able to provide ongoing treatment to make sure it healed quickly and correctly.  He also gave great advice on rehabilitation and was able to alleviate muscular-skeletal issues that arose during the rehab.

My second injury was a broken leg – traditionally, something many would consider a chiropractor unable to help with.  But it quickly became apparent how much relief John could provide for my upper body, which was reacting badly to having to use crutches to move around.  After each treatment I felt immediate and long lasting pain relief.

I have also found him extremely knowledgeable.  Regarding my leg injury, advice that John gave me was later echoed by the specialist at the hospital a couple of weeks later.

I highly recommend his services to anyone who has recently had an injury or an ongoing problem, and I have in fact recommended his services to my partner who has successfully received treatment for her own shoulder issues.  I receive ongoing treatment for preventative measures and am extremely satisfied with his services every time I visit.

Sincerely,

"..he really knows the human body and how it works."

I’m here to tell you that Dr. John White is not your ordinary chiropractor!

In the middle of April this year I hurt my knee in a yoga class – ‘a yinjury’. The pain did not subside and after a couple of weeks of inactivity and suffering I started to worry. I asked Dr. John if he could help. He said he could so I make an appointment for the next day. Not only was he able to diagnose my injury as bursitis (not something worse, as I was imagining) but in 3 short sessions, plus some ’homework’, he took me from constant aching and sharp pains with every step back to my running, cycling, dancing self!

So, think of Dr. John when you hear people complain about sore knees or shoulders or feed not just backs! He does traditional back adjustments, of course, but also is an expert in ART and mobilizations and really knows the human body and how it works.

Six weeks later I’m still pain-free!

Sincerely,

Carolyn Sinclair

"He took care not to push or move me in ways that weren’t comfortable as a pregnant woman.."

I’d like to think I’m a pretty active person, in good shape physically and mentally – but I have always felt some pains in my body – either from car accidents, sports injuries or life in general.

I met Dr. John White in November of 2010. I’m not entirely sure when my first appointment with him was, but somewhere around this time. I was roughly half way through my pregnancy and was starting to feel some lower back pain and general aches and pains. John was fabulous! He took care not to push or move me in ways that weren’t comfortable as a pregnant woman and also seemed to do just the right thing to make me feel back to new again.

I saw John throughout my pregnancy and after childbirth. You can imagine I probably needed to see John a lot more than time would allow. But, I remember bringing Sawyer in his car seat sitting in the corner of the room while John worked on me. It was amazing the simple sessions with him could help relieve some pain from being a new mom.

The last session I had with John, I had fallen down the stairs twice while carrying my son and he could tell by looking at me, that my body was in rough shape. It was probably the longest chiro session as he had quite a bit some work to do. I noticed the effects of his work pretty much immediately.

John’s dedication to his work and care with his clients is obvious. He doesn’t just do an adjustment, he looks at your whole lifestyle & has suggestions I’ve never heard come from a chiropractor before.

I would highly recommend John to anyone needing to get back in action & live a more pain free lifestyle.

"..he treated the problem and provided a strategy for long-term, self-managed maintenance.."
 
When I injured my back I had x-rays taken. Both my family doctor and John White received the x-rays. John not only showed and explained the x-rays in detail (something my doctor did not do), he treated the problem and provided a strategy for long-term, self-managed maintenance through appropriate stretches and exercise.

"Visit and see for yourself - you will be a believer!"
 
Dr. White is the real deal. He is a straight up, no bs, honest guy who gets results.
I've seen John on and off over the years when I injure myself or throw my back out, and his advice and care is awesome.
He honestly cares about your well being and will give you the time you need.
Visit and see for yourself - you will be a believer!

"..I'd lost faith in chiropractors and getting better until I started seeing Dr. White."
 
Dr. White is hands down the BEST chiropractor I've ever seen. And I used to see the top chiropractor in Calgary (who was the chiropractor to Olympic athletes and Calgary Flames). He is the first out of 3 chiropractors over the course of 3-4 years to help me get to the bottom of a chronic injury that caused me to stop exercising and essentially fear movement for years. He listens and diagnoses the root cause of injury, and doesn't just tell you to keep coming back for the sake of keeping a paying customer, which is how I started to feel with other chiropractors I've seen. Honestly I'd lost faith in chiropractors and getting better until I started seeing Dr. White. If you seek true healing with a no-nonsense approach, I high recommend him, he knows whats he's doing.

"..Dr. White and his team have always taken great care of me.."
 
I'm an avid cyclist, long distance runner and I also sit at a desk for almost eight hours each day - I need regular treatment and Dr. White and his team have always taken great care of me and have become an important part of my healthy well-being. They not only squeeze me into their busy schedules almost always last minute, but Dr. White has got me set up with orthotics to support my fallen arches and gave me a print out of my treatment plan with pictures of stretches and exercises to incorporate during the day at work (which i now do together with my coworkers in the office!).
 
Also, I appreciate that they bill my insurance provider directly and that the clinic is located in a great location, so I don't have to spend time being stuck in downtown traffic.

"I personally like how he incorporates other methods such as Active Release Techniques.."
 
Dr. John White has been a vital part in my recovery after all my accidents while attempting to be the worlds best weekend warrior ever. He listens to my issues and is always careful while doing an amazing job stretching me out and fast tracking me back into action. I personally like how he incorporates other methods such as Active Release Techniques (ART). 
Thanks Dr. White.

After seeing numerous chiropractors for the same issue, Dr White was the only one to diagnose and treat it properly. I feel much better after seeing him.

"..I now have a level of mobility that I thought I would never have again."
 
Every once in a while, someone makes a difference in your life. Dr. John White is one of those people for me.
 
I can think of many adjectives to describe Dr. White: personable, kind, supportive, intuitive and non judgemental, but the best part of all is that he has analytical smarts and is caring enough to listen to what you are saying, to think about your situation and to work to get the outcome you want.
 
I came to Dr. White with pain in my hip and knee caused by swinging a golf club. I had been golfing and long distance dog walking in pain for four months. I wanted to see if I could get some relief from the pain without stopping these activities. Stopping either activity, even for a short time, was a non-negotiable. 
 
What I got from Dr. White was a wonderful summer/fall of golfing and dog walking with almost no discomfort. Due to Dr. White doing what he does and by my doing the stretching and strengthening exercises he prescribed, I now have a level of mobility that I thought I would never have again. My golf swing has improved considerably. It is surprising to me that someone could improve your golf game without discussing how to swing the golf club. I believe that Dr. White can and does because of all the times that my best golf was played the day after I had been to Bayside. 
 
If you have a medical insurance plan that covers some Chiropractic visits, use them. This is the guy to visit. Regardless of what activities you do or do not do, your body will feel so much better.
-Ann M.
 


"..in a matter of weeks my pain went away.."
 
I found Bayside Chiropractic by searching for a Chiropractor that was close to my home. I'm so glad I found Dr. White because in a matter of weeks my pain went away and we were able to work towards preventing a decline and towards strengthening. Appointments are easy to book and last-minute is okay too! I highly recommend Bayside Chiropractic.
-Lindsay F.
 


"..prescribed what are the most comfortable pair of orthotics that I have ever used."
 
I worked with Dr White to address an imbalance that was causing me some pain with running. Dr. White took the time and used his expertise to carefully analyze my gait and prescribed what are the most comfortable pair of orthotics that I have ever used. Additionally, Dr. White taught me some exercises to address the imbalance and, as a result, I'm back to my running routing and the pain has gone away, hopefully forever .Thanks again Dr. White!
-R.M.
 


"I continually recommend Dr White to family, friends and colleagues.."
 
I am fairly active, and work out at the gym with a trainer regularly, but seem to be prone to injuries. I have been a patient with Dr White for at least a couple of years, and do not think I would be able to maintain my fitness regimen if not for his holistic chiropractic approach. I continually recommend Dr White to family, friends and colleagues due to his caring approach to healing and wellness, and his kind bedside manner. If you are looking for a chiropractor who is interested in caring for his patients and who makes you feel like a person, rather than a patient, contact Dr White. I am sure you will be happy with the high quality care you receive, and how great you feel physically after a visit to his office!

"..for the first time I am happy and pain free!"
 
I had lower back pain for years and tried everything and was close to giving up and just resigning myself to living with the problem until I met Dr John. He sorted me out and now for the first time I am happy and pain free!
-Nick C.
 


"..he is by far the best!"
 
Great Practice.
Dr. White is an excellent chiropractor - always good adjustments! He understand the body and how to correct it. Also is not looking to milk you, will never ask you to come just for the sake of it. In fact if you are doing better, he will ask you not to come to try to maintain it without his help! I have been to many chiros and he is by far the best! Also fun to talk with!
-Kate N.
 


"..always greeted with a friendly handshake and a smile the moment I walk in.."
 
I'm a regular at Bayside Chiropractic and always look forward to my visits with Dr. John White. I am always greeted with a friendly handshake and a smile the moment I walk in the clinic and this sets a comforting tone before each session. I spend most of my working days sitting in a desk chair, staring at my computer screen. This daily routine has contributed to a deteriorating posture along with lower back and neck strain. The techniques Dr. John White has implemented have helped me greatly at the office allowing me to get through the day with minimal discomfort. Thanks a million John for all your help my friend.
-Evan S.

"I was able to be mobile and be free of pain."
John... Thank you for everything you did to help my pain with the lower back spasm. I went on the cruise that day and had a deep tissue massage that did the trick like you said. I was able to be mobile and be free of pain. Your techniques were very appreciated and will always remember you. Regards,

"..found myself in agony with back and hip pain. Dr. White seemed to know exactly how to treat it."
I had a broken hip repaired with pins and a plate several years ago, and found myself in agony with back and hip pain. Dr. White seemed to know exactly how to treat it. He gave me useful exercises, and did some gentle adjustments. The pain was gone. I am very happy that I came here.
-Jenna H.

"I am happy to recommend Bayside Chiropractic to you."
Since working with Dr White I have received the kind of treatment to relieve my hip, back, neck needed to keep mobility and function. I am happy to recommend Bayside Chiropractic to you.
-Allan Gillis

"..he immediately grasped the physiological changes that needed to occur.."
Dr. White has been my chiropractor for several years. I walked into his office this week because my coach had sent me there - saying I was "crooked" and despairing of my hip flexor tension. I explained the requirements of the sport and my deficiencies, and he immediately grasped the physiological changes that needed to occur to maximize my performance. We now have a plan and schedule in place. After 1 session yesterday, my performance improved dramatically when practicing last night.
- Suzanne A.

"
He's very skilled at what he does.."

Dr. White is wonderful, he takes his time to assess what the problem is, and makes very helpful suggestions on how to deal with them to stop them coming back. He's very skilled at what he does, and also very friendly and makes the effort to get to know his patients. 
-Katharine P.

"..not only on healing your injuries but also creating a long-term plan to prevent them from happening again."
Working with John has made all the difference in my recovery. He focuses not only on healing your injuries but also creating a long-term plan to prevent them from happening again. As an athlete this is just as important as rehab. John was recommended to me by a family member and I have since recommended him to other friends, and will continue to do so!
-B.T.

"..impressed with his sincere interest in helping me get better.."
I've known John for several years now and have always been impressed with his sincere interest in helping me get better and back on track to do the things I enjoy. He clearly understands the body and how it functions (or should function).
-Neal P.

"He provided an exercise program and I got results."
He has listened carefully to my symptoms and has sought to improve the two areas where I suffered with joint pain. He provided an exercise program and I got results. His approach is so positive and he works to diagnose and to alleviate the areas of pain.
-Frances W.

"His helpful advice on nutrition and strength training also helped improve my performance and prevent injury.
Being in the 60+ category my muscles don't recover as fast as a young man. My visits with John helped me recover faster after intense training. His helpful advice on nutrition and strength training also helped improve my performance and prevent injury. With John's help I was able to get a 46.29 PB in a 10K and win 3 races in my age group in 2013.
-Kenneth M.

"..takes the time to ask about me as a person.."

John is a great chiropractor and genuinely nice guy. Always takes the time to ask about me as a person, and then efficiently and effectively applies his chiropractic touch. I go faithfully every 2 weeks and couldn't survive otherwise.
-C.B.

"He takes time to heal you, and it's clear he knows what he's doing."

He's not one of those chiros who bills you $50 then works on you for 5 minutes and kicks you out. He takes time to heal you, and it's clear he knows what he's doing.
-Ben S.

"..I have been kept upright and mobile by the thoughtful and attentive care given by Dr. White.."

As a long-term patient of Bayside I have been kept upright and mobile by the thoughtful and attentive care given by Dr. White who always takes the time to find out what problems have arisen between visits and treats them on the spot.

Beat Winter Depression...Go Snowshoeing
Vancouverites know winter can be long, tough and for some of us, depressing. Most of our conversations this time of year seem to revolve around the rain, short days and that Mexico vacation you’re taking to get away from the dreary Vancouver winter weather. Well this year I’m encouraging you to follow my lead and take a different approach.
