After graduating from UBC with a degree in Chemistry, Dr. Basra went to Palmer West Chiropractic College in San Jose, California. She advanced in the sports chiropractic program and treated many athletes of different ages and levels. Dr. Basra has also acquired a certification in Orthotic casting and gait scan analysis and is a sport nutritional specialist. She has also finished a 2 year fellowship program in the Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner Program.
Dr. Basra’s practice currently ranges from elite athletes, adults, seniors, children, pediatrics and prenatal women. She strongly believes the most effective treatment approach is some combination of soft tissue work (ART, trigenics, massage), physiotherapy (heat, ice, stretching, and exercise), and chiropractic (restoration of joint mechanics).
Chiropractic can and may help many conditions such as low back pain, neck, shoulder, ankle, knee, arm pain, infantile colic, TMJD, headaches, migraines, and many other conditions. Treatments vary according to the specific problem but may include mobilization, manipulation, physical therapy, soft tissue work, exercise and suggestions on posture and overall health.
Dr. Basra believes in optimizing one’s health potential and performance. She is very committed to giving her patients the most up-to-date natural health care available. She is very enthusiastic, full of knowledge and always willing to help her patients reach their optimal health goals.
Dr. Benita Basra is certified in Webster Technique and currently is trying to focus her practice on pre and post natal women, pregnancy, children, and babies.
