Dr. Yoon Han

Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)

With a robust career spanning over two decades, Dr. Han brings a wealth of global experience to our clinic, having honed his chiropractic skills across continents. A distinguished alumnus of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, Dr. Han has been recognized for his deep commitment to excellence in patient care.

Post-graduation, Dr. Han enriched his expertise in South Korea, working within a multidisciplinary team at a leading rehabilitation center, where he cultivated his passion for managing pain conditions. His pursuit of integrating holistic practices into his treatments led him to also work in oriental medicine clinics in South Korea and Malaysia, enhancing his approach with unique methodologies.

Since relocating to Canada in 2011, Dr. Han has consistently applied a personalized treatment philosophy. He focuses on understanding each patient's unique health challenges through comprehensive consultations, detailed physical assessments, and diagnostic imaging such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs when necessary. His treatments typically involve manual therapy techniques that target joints, muscles, ligaments, and fascia to alleviate discomfort and improve overall function.

Dr. Han specializes in the management of lower back pain and integrates acupuncture into his practice to provide a multifaceted approach to pain relief. He is dedicated to empowering his patients, encouraging their active participation in their recovery and long-term health.

Outside the clinic, Dr. Han is an enthusiastic collector of coins and pins, boasting a collection of over a thousand items. He also enjoys hiking and catching the latest films with his wife.
