Dr. Lisa Scott
As a child growing up in Calgary, I was taken to the chiropractor to treat random childhood injuries due to falls off fences or bikes. After finishing high school, I took my first job in the 9-5 workforce and experienced repetitive injury firsthand. All these experiences led me to become a chiropractor, as I wanted to learn how to heal the body with a holistic approach. I graduated in 1999 from Western States Chiropractic College (now known as University of Western States). As a new graduate I worked in Hermiston, Oregon and then moved back to Canada in 2001.
In my practice I take an integrative approach involving three components in chiropractic care. First, treating the actual problem with specific diagnosis and, if needed, any necessary imaging. Second, strengthening the area to bring stability and reduced pain. Finally, teaching the patient techniques to avoid or modify offending activities.
In my 20+ years of practice, I have completed numerous continuing education courses and am currently enrolled in Acupuncture and Dry Needling/Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) Certification. Treating musculoskeletal conditions, I use manual therapies such as spinal adjustments, myofascial release, exercise, Kinesiotaping and Graston.
I’m married to James Scott and have two teenage boys, a dog and a bunny. Fun fact: I volunteer at Alberta Institute for Wildlife Rehabilitation picking up injured birds.
