Dr. Lai received his doctor degree from The University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. He worked in many prominent clinics in the Portland area, and gained an extensive amount of experience. Dr. Lai then moved back to his hometown Vancouver, B.C. and has been providing care to his patients since. After settling in Vancouver, he obtained his degree in Acupuncture. With Acupuncture he is able to treat more internal organ problems, on top of the external physical problems he uses Chiropractic to treat. When he was younger, he obtained a bachelor’s degree from University of British Columbia, in Food and Nutritional Sciences Double Major, as Dr. Lai believes what we eat daily is tremendously important on our health state.
Ever since childhood, Dr. Lai has been fascinated by natural medicine and physical rehabilitation. As a result, he started volunteering in many hospital rehabilitation departments since high school, and has accumulated an outstanding amount of hours and experience. His studies in chiropractic, physical rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, and personal training, enable him to treat many chronic physical complaints.
His studies in nutrition, herbs, and acupuncture enable him to help patients with internal organ problems, heal faster, and eliminate nutritional imbalances. Dr. Lai’s goal is to treat the roots to his patients’ problems, instead of alleviating symptoms only. Dr. Lai applies evidence-based therapy methods that are scientifically proven and would not potentially hurt patients (e.g. unnecessary x-rays). He utilizes an approach which includes joint adjustments, soft tissue techniques, acupuncture, physiotherapy machines, and home rehabilitation exercises. These methods can ensure optimal healing, improve joint alignment, excel organ functions, eliminate nerve entrapments, and reduce Inflammation.
During his spare time Dr. Lai enjoys staying active and spending time with his family. Dr. Lai has practiced martial arts for many years and enjoy his time doing sports or with his family and dogs. Dr. Lai is fully fluent English, Mandarin, Taiwanese, and some Cantonese.
