Dr. Félix Lascelles-palys – SPORTs CHIROPRACTIC
Dr. Félix Lascelles-Palys received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree concurrently with his Masters in Sports Medicine from University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Certified in methods including Active Release Techniques (ART) and Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR), he takes pride in enhancing his skillset whenever possible. Dr. Lascelles-Palys is now a resident of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences and has begun his 4-year post-doctoral education in sports sciences in Canada.
Having been an athlete himself throughout his life in several sports, including baseball, ice hockey, ultimate frisbee, and boxing, a long list of his own injuries drew Dr. Lascelles-Palys towards the field of rehabilitation and Sports Sciences. He has worked as a trainer for professional lacrosse, completed multiple sports medicine placements with various high school teams, and interned for 6 months in Washington under the supervision of the Seattle Seahawks team chiropractor.
Through his research over the past few years, some topics that Dr. Lascelles-Palys has developed a focus in include: the mechanisms of injury and subsequent rehabilitation involving shoulders and elbows of throwing athletes; building “strong mobility” in various sports movements, especially those that include lateral explosive movements, and; the unique anatomical variance of patients and its effect on their movements and everyday life.
Dr. Lascelles-Palys sees treatment not only as a way to alleviate pain or dysfunction, but as an opportunity for education, and working out the root cause of an injury to avoid a future re-aggravation. He is a very strong advocate for evidence-based practice, and ensures that his treatment style is constantly evolving to reflect the newest research in patient-centred
