Dr. Brittany Labatte D.C. Chiropractor
After receiving her Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from York University, Brittany later graduated from New York Chiropractic College as a Doctor of Chiropractic and has over 9 years experience. She continued to upgrade her education and received training in Active release techniques and instrument assisted soft tissue techniques, both of which are used for acute and chronic overuse conditions. These techniques treat muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves and have been proven to be excellent tools in treating and preventing repetitive stress and sports related injuries.

For a gentler treatment Dr. Brittany uses a hand held instrument called an Activator tool as an alternative for restoring joint and spinal motion.
