No one wants to be in pain
Maybe it's nagging neck pain that's preventing you from getting a good night's sleep or the weekly/daily headache, or you suffer from migraines. Maybe it's ongoing low back pain and bad posture from sitting at a desk all day. Maybe it's the stress and tension between your shoulder blades, that tightness that won't go away. Maybe you're feeling exhausted and have low energy. We understand that not functioning at your 100% can be frustrating and leave you feeling helpless. You're not alone.
Your body is made to heal
We believe that your body has a tremendous capacity to heal, adapt and learn. When your body is functioning properly, pain and symptoms go away. We believe in working with people and families to help them feel empowered and motivated to reach their goals and optimize their health. Your body is an amazing machine that has certain requirements it needs and we are here to help you understand and implement these requirements.
Let us Help
We look at things differently, and our fresh look at your health and your goals are our priority. Following an initial exam and assessment we will develop a unique plan designed to help you meet all of your health goals. Chiropractic care is more then just covering up your symptoms; it's about allowing your body to heal naturally.
Meet with our team to review your personal needs. Our doctor will provide a complimentary consultation to determine your unique needs and if an examination is right for you.
Once we determine that an examination is required,
the doctor will perform a neuro-structural exam.
We know that sounds complicated, but it's the best way for us to get the information we need to see how your nervous system is functioning in order to provide the right care.
The doctor will review, analyze and interpret your unique results. If we uncover a core problem, we'll develop a personalized care plan designed specifically for you to move you forward on your path to a healthier lifestyle.
WHO ARE WE?
DR. ALFREDO PETRONE
Hi! I'm Dr. Alfredo and my passion is helping people understand how health works in their body. It's not just about alleviating pain and symptoms but rather creating an optimal environment for healing.
I started my long haul of post-secondary studies at the University of Ottawa where I graduated with an Honours degree in Health Sciences. It was here that I found my love for health, the nervous system and ultimately chiropractic. I then moved to Toronto to get my Chiropractic degree. Shortly after graduation I made the move to Nanaimo where I joined a clinic and built up a great practice with some awesome people! But something was missing. I made the decision to make a big move to Vancouver in the spring of 2018. A year and a half later I created Coastal Life Chiropractic as a way to use all my knowledge, skills and experience to best serve my community.
I am a lifelong learner constantly reading and taking course work in the areas of Neurology, Nutrition, Movement and health. I spend many hours a week doing functional fitness and enjoy pushing myself physically and mentally. All of this would not have been possible with out my beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog, Lucy. She has been with me since 2013 and remains a constant joy in my life!
Ashleigh’s passion, genuine kindness, and patient-first philosophy are rooted in the backbone of her practice. She has a unique ability to lead her clients through curated and comprehensive short or long term treatment plans that are supported by in-depth diagnostics and an understanding for her client’s physical, mental, and lifestyle needs.
Her goal-oriented mindset was crafted over her years as a competitive slopestyle skier with the first-hand experience of injury. With her unique skills as a high-level athlete, Ashleigh focuses on both the mental and physical rehabilitation of her patients. Ashleigh also practices preventative care and can apply her high level of knowledge to specific treatment plans aimed at creating a pain-free and holistic approach to her patient care.
