Dr. David Bzdel, DC

I spent my time growing up between small town Saskatchewan and the Fraser Valley in BC. Hockey was a big part of life and a big part of becoming a chiropractor. Experiencing the benefit of Chiropractic while playing Junior A and University Hockey was pivotal in deciding on a healing profession that was focused on health, injury prevention and performance.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take over the existing practice of long time Kootenay Chiropractor, Dr Margaret Salmon in 2011. Previously practicing in the Fraser Valley, it was exciting to move my family to Castlegar and experience the amazing lifestyle of the West Kootenays. This area was always a consideration after a decade of travel that included obtaining my chiropractic degree at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and practicing in New Zealand, Ireland, and the UK. My wife Lisa, and son, David ‘Tiger’ Jr. cannot imagine living in any other place.

I employ a variety of techniques in my practice including manual and activator instrument adjustments, myofascial active release as well as rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle advice. I am one of only a few certified chiropractic wellness practitioners in Canada, allowing me a greater understanding of lifestyle related conditions and how to best treat them with chiropractic, diet, exercise and emotional wellness. Also pediatric care is a big part of my practice and it is where I have a special interest having invested considerable time and education at the post graduate level.
