Dr. Oliver Vimard earned a Bachelor in Physical Education and Health from the University of Toronto. From that point onward he has been keen on acquiring a vast amount of theoretical and practical knowledge in order to help the active population achieve their performance, rehabilitation, and fitness goals. He then graduated from the highly regarded Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and received his doctorate degree in Chiropractic. Throughout his life, he has been very active and has enjoyed playing sports and working out regularly, constantly learning new ways to improve one’s performance and pain-free movements.
Using Evidence-Informed Care, he combines the best available evidence with his expertise and YOUR preferences to tailor his treatments to your individual needs. Read more about evidence-informed care here.
Dr. Oliver’s treatment method strives to achieve a balance between the use of 'passive' modalities (Spinal adjustments and Myofascial Release Therapy [M.R.T.]) and 'active care' (Moving better and more efficiently through the use of functional movement assessments and corrective exercises). Dr. Oliver is an avid learner, and loves to impart his knowledge on others.
Dr. Oliver also uses Low-Level-Laser Therapy (L.L.L.T.), which has been shown to benefit a wide range of injuries from chronic arthritic conditions to shoulder and patellar tendonitis, to carpal tunnel syndrome. Treatments tailored to the INDIVIDUAL are paramount to his philosophy of care and his greatest satisfaction comes from giving his patients the best possible results with each treatment.
