Dr. Strudwick has been in practice since 1998 and prior to that attained his B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Victoria. He has attended many seminars over the years in order to stay current on the latest treatment methods and scientifically-valid options. Having completed training in Amsterdam and Oxford, he is one of only two chiropractors on Vancouver Island to hold an ICCSP (Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner) through the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic, a body whose mandate is to train, and provide standards, for chiropractors working at top athletic events worldwide.
Dealing with neck pain and back pain issues is what many people see him for, however, shoulder injuries, wrist and hand pain, and hip pain complaints are commonplace as well.
I have been attending Dr.Strudwick since 1998, on a once monthly maintenance program and I can only say positive statements about him. In 1959 I was completely incapacitated and unable to even turn in bed. After that, until I met Dr. Strudwick I have had ten different chiropractors; both competent and incompetent men. Dr. Strudwick is friendly, concerned with my welfare, in addition to my well being. With him, my adjustments are painless and done efficiently so I can recommend him to anyone who is looking for a highly qualified chiropractor.
Dr. Strudwick has been my Chiropractor in Victoria for many years. He’s been a god-send for me. I see him frequently, followed by his in-office massage therapist, Noelle Jones (also wonderful), to help manage chronically painful muscles and joints, and the resulting headaches and mobility issues I now suffer with since being injured in multiple car accidents. I also have joint hyper-mobility, which requires I be treated by people who are knowledgeable of that condition. Dr. Strudwick is amongst the very few people I’ve seen (out of a long list of doctors and therapists), who was able to provide me with a consistent level of pain relief.
We have been going to Dr. Strudwick ever since we’ discovered him’ about 8 year ago. Due to severe back problems I have needed help from his profession for over 40 years. Dr. Strudwick is absolutely the best and most knowledgeable chiropractor in Victoria I have ever found. Would highly recommend him.
Dr. Strudwick is a true professional. Very courteous and really knows how to make me feel at ease. Dr. Strudwick took away from my pain cause by a ruptured disk leading to moderate sciatica. He gave me my life back pain free. I would highly recommend Dr.Strudwick.
I was hesitant to try a new chiropractor after some previous experiences. A friend recommended Dr. Strudwick to me and I’m very happy that I took their advice. He took time to listen and explained very clearly the follow up exercises that I should do. I’ll definitely recommend him to other friends.
So What To Do?
If you’re wanting to just try a few exercises and manage your pain that way for now, that’s fine. Dr. Stuart McGill is a spinal biomechanics researcher who has come-up with what are known as the “McGill Big 3.” These exercises have been found to specifically target the core muscles of the low back and abdomen while at the same time minimizing strain on the discs and joints.
