I had pain in my right hip for four years. It was getting worse every winter. Last summer, I decided to give my body a birthday present. "Painless Future" I asked my co-workers, " Do you know a good practitioner? " Two of them answered immediately. "I strongly recommend Dr.Raminder Badyal !" They explained to me that they had tough times because of severe pain. They also told me that there was no pain after the treatments. OK. I would see the doctor and find out if his treatment would work for me. (I was very skeptical.) It was summertime, and I had no pain. I explained to him my situation during the wintertime. Dr. Badyal checked my body, and after a few minutes, he found an inflammation spot. I was shocked to learn that pain was hiding. I realized it was important to treat it before it got worse. Last winter, I was pain-free. I even forgot that I had pain before. For a patient visiting the doctor's office is a stressful event. Dr. Badyal's office is different. When I see Bruce, a receptionist, I feel happy. Dr. Badyal knows what I need: treatments and advice to keep me healthy. The most important thing is to do what Dr. Badyal told you. The homework. You, Dr. Badyal, and Bruce will be a team to make your life much better and richer.

Dr Badyal has been a really great help with my chronic back pain for four years now. Always caring and accommodating of emergencies, he constantly provides in-depth advices and recommendations that go beyond the scope of just addressing the immediate symptoms. It's worth mentioning that Bruce, his MOA, is absolutely great and a makes paperwork and scheduling a pleasure!

I seriously needed help so I googled chiropractor near me. The Downtown Wellness Centre link caught my eye. Reading through the site I felt hope that Dr Badyal would have a different approach then what I had been used to. His Office Manager Bruce is wonderful. He made me a next day appointment. I arrived with heavy baggage. After almost 40 years of monthly adjustments I still had chronic neck/upper back pain and because I had stopped going to anyone during covid problems had progressed down my left arm all the way to my little finger. Decades of poor posture, slouching over a computer and general lack of fitness had taken their toll. After seeing Dr B for only one month I have far less pain and his team work philosophy of helping me to help myself makes so much more sense to me. He’s showing me how effect a cure as opposed to just putting a bandaid on my symptoms and for that I can’t thank him enough!

Dr. Badyal is an excellent , dedicated and hard-working chiropractor. Also noteworthy is his passion, adequate knowledge and experience in his treatment plans. My wife and I got healed of our back pain. He explains well what causes our problem and how to manage it. Would highly recommend. And his office assistant , Bruce is awesome.

He is the best chiropractor. The office is in a great location, since you enter you feel welcome by Bruce in the reception, I had a horrible back/shoulder pain but now I can't complain about it. Got my orthotics with him to, they were quick and comfortable. Highly recommended

For years I heard my sister rave about her Chiropractor and after a MVA I went to see Dr. B. I received an exceptionally high level of treatment care and support through all the physical and emotional aspects of pain management and recovery. I am continuing see Dr. B for maintenance and I truly look forward to these appts! Bruce at the Front Desk does an outstanding job at managing all of his duties while still being present with me and after the appt I always leave with a brighter outlook on things. I’m tremendously grateful for both of their work and the care they have provided for myself and my sister.

5 Great Reasons to Walk Instead of Driving

Downtown Vancouver is an extremely "walkable" city. It's also notoriously hard to find parking. Rather than get frustrated by this, many are choosing to leave the keys on the dresser and tie on a pair of walkers instead. Whether you're sight-seeing, looking for a great downtown restaurant, or commuting to work; walking to Vancouver's many […]

The Art & Science of Prescription Foot Orthotics

When writing about a topic such as foot orthotics, the first question that needs to be answered from a functional health perspective is: "Why do I need foot orthotics?"  The simple yet affirmative answer is that your feet are a complex structure of bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons that support the balance of your body.  From […]
