As clinical Director and founder of Active Health & Wellness Clinic, Dr. Starr's comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach blends state of the art technology with modern chiropractic care.
From early on Dr. Sean Starr was interested in health & Fitness. He grew up in Victoria, BC where he was actively involved in many sports including soccer, hockey, golf, baseball, and weight training. During these competitive activities he gained a greater appreciation for the biomechanics of the human body. He did four years of undergraduate studies working towards a Bachelor of Science Degree. Following that he was accepted at Western States University in Portland, Oregon where he spent an additional four years completing his education to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
When working with you as a patient his treatment plans are always designed to be the most tried and tested ways to help you reach your personal health related goals. His approach to treatment is best described as a biomechanical approach that is evidence based (supported by scientific studies). He is one of a select few chiropractors here in Victoria fully certified in Active Release Techniques (see www.activerelease.com for more info). This is the gold standard in soft tissue treatments that both locates and breaks down adhesions and scar tissue which are causing pain, stiffness, weakness, numbness, and physical dysfunction. Dr. Starr combines this with Chiropractic adjustments to restore freedom and motion to a specific joint or area. These treatments are supplemented with modalities such as ultrasound, electrotherapy or laser therapy to assist with the pain relief and tissue healing. Dr. Starr also gives his patients lifestyle recommendations and specific rehabilitation exercises are prescribed to treat and prevent the condition from returning. Through a very thorough history and examination, Dr. Starr will get to the root cause of your problem and provide you with the diagnosis and treatment for the specific symptoms of your condition.
