Dr. Shannon Patterson, a New Westminster and Vancouver based Chiropractor, is excited to offer a wellness based approach to brain health through the body at her clinic, The Adjusting Room Chiropractic and Wellness. Shannon believes your brain is capable of thriving not just surviving as evidenced by neuroplasticity research and she uses this knowledge to integrate a customized brain program for you or your child depending on the results of her testing as well as your personal goals and aspirations.
With the rise in neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, Autism and Dyslexia, the increased awareness of head injury and our aging population, Dr. Shannon felt a huge pull to provide a natural approach to care in this area. With a passion for natural, non-pharmaceutical approaches, she developed a BC Brain Wellness Program to help aid anyone with neurological needs. Dr. Shannon has studied extensively with various experts in the field of childhood and adult neurodevelopmental disorders including, but not limited to Dr. Yannick Pauli, a Swiss Chiropractor and Functional Neurology expert.
Whether you are looking to optimize your already healthy brain or looking for natural approaches to managing neurobehavioral disorders, Dr. Shannon is here to serve you.
