For almost 20 years, Dr. Rozina Budhwani has developed a style of practice that combines correcting misaligned joints with specific muscle exercise techniques. She believes that an accurate diagnosis or getting to the root cause of the problem is the key to proper healing.
Dr. Rozina graduated from Simon Fraser University in Kinesiology and started her career as a Health Promotion Assistant for the Vancouver Air Traffic Controllers. She then transferred to West Coast Kinesiologists Company in Maple Ridge implementing exercise programs for motor vehicle accident victims. Four years later she decided to pursue Chiropractic.
Dr. Rozina completed the four-year Chiropractic program at Los Angeles Chiropractic College and graduated with honours. She was given the opportunity to work with some of the most reputable Chiropractors in LA. Currently she is completing a diplomat program in Chiropractic Pediatrics. Dr. Rozina is certified in the Webster technique which is an assessment and adjusting protocol for the pregnant woman’s pelvis. Her specialties include sports injuries, posture and orthotic assessments, children’s spinal health, acute and chronic care.
As chiropractors we specialize in locating spinal bones which are stuck out of position or which have abnormal motion. This may result in stretching, rubbing or chafing a nerve, which feels like a “pinched nerve”. These “Subluxations” can interfere with nerve messages between the brain and the body, producing unhealthy changes to affect muscles, joints and possibly organs.
We remove this interference by using spinal manipulations called “adjustments”. We are able to normalize nervous system function so that your body can heal itself. In this way we treat the cause of your trouble and not just your symptoms.
Dr. Mailloux’s appreciation for the optimal functioning of the human body is rooted in her athletic background — having grown up as a competitive soccer player and ballet dancer, she sought to learn more about body mechanics and physiology and how they related to the health of an individual. Dr. Mailloux completed a 4-year Bachelor of Science at University of Guelph, majoring in Human Kinetics, followed by a 4-year Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, where she received the Canadian Chiropractic Specialty College of Physical & Occupational Rehabilitation award for excellence in rehabilitation as part of her clinical internship.
Dr. Mailloux employs a comprehensive assessment style and holistic approach to care. Her treatment style includes a combination of manual muscle work (both hands-on and instrument-assisted), spinal manipulative therapy, rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle modifcations based on an individual’s posture and movement patterns. Dr. Mailloux has provided care for a wide variety of patients, including those with chronic pain, acute pain, sports-related injuries and before sports.
Dr. Mailloux currently lives downtown Vancouver and enjoys keeping active with yoga, hiking, rock climbing and running.
