Dr. Brian Lim BSc., DC
Dr. Brian Lim is a native of Victoria, and graduated from the University of Victoria with his BSc. Kinesiology, from the faculty of Physical Education, in 2003. During his time at UVic, Brian was a member of the university volleyball team and was riddled with sports injuries. A local chiropractor treated him with soft tissue therapy and joint manipulation, and he immediately saw improvement in body function. As a result, he was able to continue competing with less pain. This experience inspired Brian to pursue his Doctor of Chiropractic. Brian graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, in Toronto, in 2007.
Brian believes in a whole body approach to chiropractic care. He uses thorough chiropractic examination techniques to determine limitations in body movement, joint mobility, and body dysfunction that contribute to injuries and pain. Functional movement tests, palpation skills, and evidence-based clinical decision-making determine his course of treatment. Dr. Lim provides spinal and extremity manipulation with both hands-on adjustments and instrument adjusting techniques. In conjunction with joint manipulation, he uses a variety of soft tissue techniques may be incorporated into the treatment sessions in order to aid in recovery.
Brain is committed to providing excellent chiropractic care, and enjoys taking hands-on continuing education courses to further his treatment skills. He integrates patient education and rehabilitative exercises during treatment sessions, in an effort to maintaining joint mobility and facilitate healing. Brian will take the time to listen to and help you achieve your health-care goals, whether your goal is to be a weekend warrior, play with your kids or grandchildren, or compete at your best.
Born and raised in Victoria, Brian is proud to be back on the island raising his young family. Outside of the clinic, Brian enjoys the outdoors with his family, attempts to golf, and loves to ski.
